If youth knew; if age could.
Resolve to be tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving, and tolerant with the weak and the wrong. Sometime in your life you will have been all of these.
Dr. Robert H. Goddard
(August 05, 1882 - August 10, 1945)
Youth is the gift of nature, but age is a work of art.
Stanislaw Jerzy Lec
(March 06, 1906 - May 07, 1966)
There is a fountain of youth: it is your mind, your talents, the creativity you bring to your life and the lives of people you love. When you learn to tap this source, you will truly have defeated age.
(September 20, 1934 - )
It is a pity that, as one gradually gains experience, one loses one's youth.
Vincent van Gogh
(March 30, 1853 - July 29, 1890)
Fidelity is a virtue which should be frequently proved, but not always.
(April 10, 1932 - )
People don't know what people go through in a war.
I wonder if any of them can tell from just looking at me that all I am is the sum total of my pain, a raw woundedness so extreme that it might be terminal. It might be terminal velocity, the speed of the sound of a girl falling down to a place from where she can't be retrieved. What if I am stuck down here for good?
