WHAT IS YOUTH?

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

Comment:

It is said that youth is the time to learn; so it becomes quite clear then that if you desire to learn in old age, you have to carry your youth with you.  I recalll in Guyana where  i was trying to encourage two eighteen year old girls to join the class , an illiterate old man said; “Dem gyal da tu big fuh laan”.  I was amazed at his stupidity as I was  continuing learning Hindi at the age of sixty five.
