"In the central place of every heart,
there is a recording chamber; so long as
it receives messages of beauty,
hope, cheer and courage, you are young."
"Maturity is the ability to think, speak
and act your feelings within the bounds of dignity.
The measure of your maturity is how spiritual
you become during the midst of your frustrations."
"Nobody grows old merely by living a number of years.
We grow old by deserting our ideals.
Years may wrinkle the skin,
but to give up enthusiasm wrinkles the soul."
"You are as young as your self-confidence,
as old as your fears; as young as your hope,
as old as your despair."
"When the wires are all down and your heart is
covered with the snows of pessimism and the ice
of cynicism, then, and only then, have you grown old."
