What is aging?

"Youth is not entirely a time of life - it is a state
of mind. It is not wholly a matter of ripe cheeks, red
lips or supple knees. It is a temper of the will, a
quality of the imagination, a vigor of the emotions, a
freshness of the deep springs of life. It means a
temperamental predominance of courage over timidity,
for an appetite for adventure over love of ease"

"Nobody grows old by merely living a number of years.
People grow old only by deserting their ideals"

"Whatever your years, there is in every being's heart
the love of wonder, the undaunted challenge of events,
the unfailing child-like appetite for what next, and
the joy and the game of life. You are as young as your
faith, as old as your doubt, as young as your
self-confidence, as old as your fear, as young as your
hope, as old as your despair. In the central place of
every heart there is a recording chamber; so long as
it receives messages of beauty, hope, cheer and
courage, so long are you young"

"When the wires are all down and your heart is covered
with the snows of pessimism and the ice of cynicism
then, and then only are you grown old"
