[00:04.07]004. Youth

[00:14.48]Youth is not a time of life; it is a state of mind; it is not a matter of rosy cheeks, red lips and supple knees;

[00:24.60]it is a matter of the will, a quality of the imagination, and a vigor of the emotions;

[00:31.33]it is the freshness of the deep springs of life.

[00:35.46]Youth means a temperamental predominance of courage over timidity, of the appetite for adventure over the love of ease.

[00:45.63]This often exists in a man of 60 more than a boy of 20. Nobody grows old merely by a number of years.

[00:54.94]We grow old by deserting our ideals.

[00:58.77]Years may wrinkle the skin, but to give up enthusiasm wrinkles the soul.

[01:05.17]Worry, fear, self-distrust bows the heart and turns the spirit back to dust.

[01:12.87]Whether 60 or 16, there is in every human being’s heart the lure of wonder,

[01:19.46]the unfailing childlike appetite of what’s next and the joy of the game of living.

[01:26.09]In the center of your heart and my heart there is a wireless station:

[01:31.89]so long as it receives messages of beauty, hope, cheer, courage and power from men and from the Infinite,

[01:41.47]so long are you young.

[01:44.38]When the aerials are down, and your spirit is covered with snows of cynicism and the ice of pessimism,

[01:51.84]then you are grown old, even at 20, but as long as your aerials are up, to catch waves of optimism,

[02:00.22]there is hope you may die young at 80.
