 this article i copyed share with everybody .


Youth is not a time of life;itis a state of mind;itis not a matter of rosy cheeks,red lips and supple knees;itis a matter of will,a quality of imagination,a vigor of the emotions;itis the freshness of the deep springs of life.

Youth means a temperamental predominance of courage over timidity,of the appetite for adventure over the love of ease.This ofter exists in a man of 60 more than a boy of 20.Nobody grows old merely by a number of years.We grow old by deserting our ideals.

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 wonder ,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 wirless station:so long as it receiveds 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 synicism and the ice of pessimism,then you are grown old ,even at 20,but as long as your aerials are up to catch waves of optimism,there is hope you may die young at 80.
