youth is not a time of life; it is a state of mind. it is not a matter ofrosy cheeks, red lips and supple knees. it is a matter of the will, a quality ofthe imagination, vigor of the emotions; it is the freshness of the deep springof life.
youth means a temperamental predominance of courage over timidity, of theappetite for adventure over the love of ease. this often exits in a man of 60,more than a boy of 20. nobody grows merely by the number of years;we grow old bydeserting our ideas. years may wrinkle the skin, but to give up enthusiasmwrinkles the soul.
worry, fear, self-distrust1 bows the heart and turns the spirit back todust. whether 60 or 16, there is in every human being's heart the lure ofwonders, the unfailing childlike appetite of what's next and the joy of the gameof living.
in the center of your heart and my heart there is a wireless station; solong as it receives messages of beauty, hope, cheer, courage and power from menand from infinite, so long as you are young. when the aerials are down, and yourspirit is covered with the snows of cynicism and the ice of pessimism, thenyou've grown old, even at 20, but as long as your aerials are up.
Youth is short and fleeting, but youth is most beautiful period of life,Weare young, so we radical, we dare to try, and not hesitate to pursue ourdreams.We are young,so we are confident, we never bow to the fate,those setbacksand frustrations.We are young ,so we are beautiful, we have the most charmingand attractive faces.
This world does not necessarily have a happy ending, there is no lingeringregret for youth! whether happy or unhappy , youth is used to miss! There is noright and wrong, only a touch of one’s mind! This is the best outcome.
As movie lines of said, the horrors of growing up is to turn yourself intothe look of the person you've ever disliked. The cost of growth is to lose somethings, those things are the ones that you do not feel precious, but a few yearslater, when you have experienced a lot of things you would realize these willnot appear again in your later life. But it does not matter, everyone's growthpath is the case. Just cherish what you have now, because those are the youth,with tears, heart/peak in return. In the coming days, the memories of the pastwould warm your heart. I say ,youth is immortal, Happiness, or pain are both theevidence that witness your youth.
Life is very marvelous, the ability human knew about the nature haslimitation, you never know what will happen next, especially when you findyourself in a desperate. The road to success is full of variables, and perhapssuccess is only one kind of possibility. Perhaps, we pass through for a lifetimeendeavor, arrives at the end of life, finally has not obtained successfully, butwe did not regret, because of our efforts.
What we are supposed to do is to cherish what we have now, and learn to bethankful,and look ahead.fight for your dreams!

Between the preparation and the work,the apprenticeship and the actualdealing with a task or an art,there comes, in the experience of many young men,aperiod of uncertainty and wandering which is often misunderstood and counted astime wasted,when it is, in fact, a period rich in full and free development.
It is as natural for ardent and courageous youth to wish to know what is inlife, what it means, and what it holds for its children,as for a child to reachfor and search the things that surround and attract it.Behind every real workerin the world is a real man, and a man has a right to know the conditions underwhich he must live,and the choices of knowledge, power, and activity which areoffered him.In the education of many men and women, therefore, there comes theyear of wandering;the experience of traveling from knowledge to knowledge andfrom occupation to occupation.
The forces which go to the making of a powerful man can rarely be adjustedand blended without some disturbance of relations and conditions.Thisdisturbance is sometimes injurious, because it affects the moral foundationsupon which character rests;and for this reason the significance of theexperience in its relation to development ought to be sympatheticallystudied.The birth of the imagination and of the passions, the perception of therichness of life,and the consciousness of the possession of the power to masterand use that wealth, create a critical moment in the history of youth,—a momentricher in possibilities of all kinds than comes at any later period.
Agitation and ferment of soul are inevitable in that wonderful moment.Thereare times when agitation is as normal as is self-control at other and lesscritical times.The year of wandering is not a manifestation of aimlessness, butof aspiration,and that in its ferment and uncertainty youth is often guided toand finally prepared for its task.
