What a mistake to suppose that the passions are strongest in youth! The passions are not stronger, but the control over them is weaker! They are more easily excited, they are more violent and apparent; but they have less energy, less durability, less intense and concentrated power than in the maturer life.

Edward Bulwer-Lytton

Edward George Earle Lytton Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton (May 25, 1803-January 18, 1873) was an English novelist, poet, playwright, and politician. Lord Lytton was a florid, popular writer of his day, who coined such phrases as "the great unwashed", "pursuit of the almighty dollar", "the pen is mightier than the sword", and the infamous incipit "It was a dark and stormy night." Despite his popularity in his heyday, today his name is known as a byword for bad writing. San Jose State University-s annual Bulwer-Lytton Fiction Contest for bad writing is named after him

    co za błąd zakładać, że namiętności są najsilniejsze w młodości! namiętności nie są silniejsze, ale słabsza kontrola nad nimi! łatwiej się podniecają, są bardziej gwałtowne i pozorne; ale mają mniej energii, mniejszą wytrzymałość, mniej intensywną i skoncentrowaną moc niż w życiu dojrzałym.
