Youth is a State of Mind

Quotes and Notes #238, July 8

“Youth is not a time of life, it is a state of mind. It is not a matter of rosy cheeks, red lips and supple knees; it is a matter of the will, quality of the imagination, a vigor of the emotions. It is the freshness of the deep springs of life.”—Samuel Ullman—

Peter Pan told me I didn’t have to grow up unless I wanted to. I have listened. I have decided that I shall not dwell on the after-effects of Chemo. I will not allow the residuals of a carpal tunnel operation to cloud my thinking. I have chosen to enjoy not having to tend to an over-abundance of hair on my head.

I have decided to be who I am, to enjoy the memories and to look forward to the balance of my life, no matter what it may hold.

Everything is going to be all right
Share a smile—and maybe a bag of apples. Yes, that will do.
John P. Schulz—“Sweetie Drives on Chemo Days.”

Enjoy red today.

Enjoy red today.
