“This is the whole art of life! You enjoy your youth, and when you become old you enjoy your old age. Old age has its own beauties; no young man can have those beauties. Youth is shallow; full of energy but shallow.

Old age is not so full of energy, but things are settling and depth is arising. If you miss your youth, you will miss your old age also — remember. So I am not saying become old while you are young.

I am saying be whatsoever you are; let that moment be your totality. When a child, be a child; never enforce your wisdom on any child because that is a crippling thing. Don’t try to make a child old before he is old, don’t crush him.”
