Youth is full of sport, age's breath is short; youth is nimble, age is lame; Youth is hot and bold, age is weak and cold; Youth is wild, and age is tame.
In youth the days are short and the years are long. In old age the years are short and day's long.
Don't just count your years, make your years count.
Those who love deeply never grow old; they may die of old age, but they die young.
