“…My salad days, / When I was green in judgment, cold in blood…”
— William Shakespeare, Antony and Cleopatra (Act I, Scene V)
“Whether the point is that youth, like salad, is raw, or that salad is highly flavoured and youth loves high flavours, or that innocent herbs are youth’s food as milk is babes’ and meat is men’s, few of those who use the phrase could perhaps tell us; if so, it is fitter for parrots’ than for human speech.”
— 1926 Fowler’s Dictionary
