YOUTH
Youth is not a time of life, it is a state of mind, it is not a matter of rosy
cheeks, red lips and supple knees, it is a matter of the will, a quality of the
imagination, a vigor of the emotions, it is the freshness of the deep spring of
life .
Youth means a temperamental predominance of courage over timidity, of the
appetite for adventure over the love of ease. This often exits in a man of 60
more than a boy of 20. Nobody grows merely by a number of years, we grow old by
deserting our ideas.
Years may wrinkle the skin, but to give up enthusiasm wrinkles the soul.
Worry, fear, self-distrust bows the heart and turns the spirit back to dust.
Whether 60 or 16, there is in every human being’s heart the lure of wonders.
The unfailing childlike appetite of what’s next and the joy of the game of
living. In the center of your heart and my heart there is a wireless station so
long as it receives messages of beauty, hope, cheer. Courage and power from men
and from the infinite, so long as you are young.
When the aerials are down. and your spirit is covered with snows of cynicism
and the ice of pessimism, then you’ve grown old, even at 20, but as long as
your aerials are up, to catch waves of optimism, there’s hope you may die
young at 80.
