Wisdom on Wednesdays—The Fountain of Youth

“The great weakness of us Americans as a people consists in the fact that we cannot quite accept maturity, old age, death, or for that matter, birth, babyhood.  They are not in our imaginative picture of life.  We try to live apart from birth, old age, death.  We die from ‘perpetual youth.’”  (1939)
