Youth is not a period of time. It is a state of mind, a result of the will, a quality of the imagination, a victory of courage over timidity, a taste for adventure over the love of comfort. A man doesn't grow old because he's lived a certain number of years. A man grows old when he deserts his ideal. The years may wrinkle his skin, but deserting his ideal wrinkles his soul.
