Not enjoyment and not sorrow,
Is our destined end or way;
But to act that each tomorrow
Find us farther than today….Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Rodin - Thinking Man

People grow old only by deserting their ideals. Years may wrinkle the skin, but to give up interest, is sure to wrinkle the soul.

You are as young as your faith, as old as your doubt, as young as your self-confidence, as old as your despair. When your heart is covered with the snows of pessimism, then, and only then, are you grown old… Gen. Douglas MacArthur

I am convinced that the soul is indestructible and that it’s activity will continue through eternity. It is like the sun, which to our eyes seems to set at night, but has in reality only gone to diffuse light elsewhere…. ….Goethe
