be young, be old

Be young in wonder
Be old in wisdom
Be young at heart
Be old in love
Be young in time
Be old in experience
Be young in knowledge
Be old in understanding
Be young in foolish things
Be old in real dreams
Be young in meeting strangers
Be old in keeping friends
Be young in the wild
Be old in the calm
Be young in adventure
Be old in coming home
Be young in winning
Be old in losing
Be young, be old
Be you, be all of you

Do not grudge the hand that is moulding the still too shapeless image within you. It is growing more beautiful, though you see it not, and every touch of temptation may add to its perfection. Therefore keep in the midst of life. Do not isolate yourself. Be among men, and among things, and among troubles, and difficulties, and obstacles. The Greatest Thing in the WorldBeautiful Thoughts by Henry Drummond
