Quotes about youth

“In youth we learn; in age we understand.”

Marie Von Ebner-Eschenbach

“Youth is easily deceived, because it is quick to hope.”


“You can only be young once. But you can always be immature.”

Dave Barry

“The surest way to corrupt a youth is to instruct him to hold in higher esteem those who think alike than those who think differently.”

Friedrich Nietzsche

“There is a fountain of youth: It is your mind, your talents, the creativity you bring in your life and the lives of people you love.”

Sophia Loren

“The error of youth is to believe that intelligence is a substitute for experience, while the error of age is to believe experience is a substitute for intelligence.”

Ernest Hemingway

“Years may wrinkle the skin, but to give up interest wrinkles the soul. You are as young as your faith, as old as your doubt; as young as your self-confidence, as old as your fear; as young as your hope as old as your despair. In the central place of every heart there is a recording chamber. So long as it receives messages of beauty, hope, cheer and courage, so long are you young. When your heart is covered with the snows of pessimism and the ice of cynicism, then, and then only, are you grown old. And then, indeed as the ballad says, you just fade away.”

Douglas MacArthur




“Diplomat” is a huge hotel and spa on the South Ocean Drive in Hollywood, Florida. Eastern side of it looks on the beach, western side – on the waterway.

Some evenings we enjoy coming on the “Diplomat’s landing”. We absorb beautiful views  of the waterway, boats and the city beside the waterway. Then we turn our backs to the waterway and  take in a view of the “Diplomat’s landing”.

There are two ways to go from the landing to “Diplomat”.

You can use an escalator (it’s on the picture above behind the fountain) and a bridge to cross the street or you can cross the street on the landing’s level.

Here is the escalator.
