In an attempt to quell my birthday anxiety here are some quotes I found about youth:
“There is a fountain of youth: it is your mind, your talents, the creativity you bring to your life and the lives of people you love. When you learn to tap this source, you will truly have defeated age.”
“In youth we learn; in age we understand.”
-Marie Von Ebner-Eschenbach
“Don’t waste your youth growing up.”
Everybody’s youth is a dream, a form of chemical madness.
-F. Scott Fitzgerald
