“Youth is not a time of life; it is a state of mind.
It is a temper of the will,
A quality of the imagination,
A vigor of the emotions,
A predominance of courage over timidity,
Of the 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.
Years wrinkle the skin,
But to give up enthusiasm wrinkles the soul.
Worry, doubt, self-distrust,
Fear and despair – these are the long,
Long years that bow the head and
Turn the growing spirit back to dust.
Whether they are sixteen or seventy,
There is in every being’s heart
The love of wonder,
The sweet amazement at the stars
And star like things and thoughts,
The undaunted challenge of events,
The unfailing childlike appetite
For what is to come 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.
When the wires are all down
And all the innermost core of your heart
Is covered with the snows of pessimism
And the ice of cynicism,
Then you are grown old indeed.
But so long as your heart receives messages
Of beauty, cheer, courage, grandeur
And power from the earth,
From man and from the Infinite,
So long you are young.”

"This too shall pass"

That one has always been one of my favorites and I'm going to get it tattooed on me sometime. I think of it in times of anxiety or deep sorrow and it reminds me that this feeling is not permanent. It helps me not get trapped in the depths of my own emotions.

Human relationships become difficult when the "I" stands above the "You".

Everything is going to be okay in the end, if it is not okay, it is not the end.

Hard work never killed anyone ... I'm not going to be the first though.
