I'm recalling from memory, so this may not be exact, but I believe that
"Youth" began during their courtship, when MT was fed up with speaking
appearances.  It derived from a quote Livy had copied into her
commonplace book, something along the lines of, "There is no word for
failure in the bright lexicon of youth."
