Youth

몇주전 웨일즈에 미친듯한 비가 내리던 날 Ed가 말했다.

꿈이 비를 타고 마구 내리는 것 같아, 심장이 두근두근해.

내일 미팅에 맞춰 당장 런던으로 못 갈지도 몰랐지만 우리는 그냥 비가 좋았다.

비록 오늘 첫 끼니를 오후 3시에 먹지만 S의 말처럼 환상적인 날씨다, 한국은.

때마침 도착한 웨이홍의 메일엔 제품 얘기는 없고 samuel ullman의 시 한편만..

아.. 오늘은 밖에 나가 좀 달리라는 당신의 뜻이구나. 하하하

 

 



Youth - Samuel Ullman

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, a quality of the imagination, a vigor of the emotions.

It is the freshness of the deep springs of life.

 

Youth means a temperamental predominance of courage over timidity of the appetite,

for adventure over the love of ease.

This often exists in man of sixty more than a boy of twenty.

Nobody grows old merely by a number of years.

We grow old by deserting our ideals.

 

Years may wrinkle the skin, but to give up enthusiam wrinkles the soul.

Worry, fear, self-distrust bows the heart and turns the spirit back to dust. 


Whether sixty or sixteen, there is in every human being heart the lure of wonder,

the infaililng child-like appetite of what is next, and the joy of the game of living.

 

In the center of your heart and my heart there is a wireless station.

so long as it receives messages of beauty, hope, cheer, courage and power from men and from the infinite,

so long are you young.

 

When the aerials are down, and your spirit is covered with snows of cynicism and the ice of pessimism,

then you are grown old, even at twenty.

 

 But as long as your aerials are up to catch the waves of optimism,

there is hope you may die young at eighty.
