Posts Tagged ‘On Youth’

This world demands the qualities of youth; not a time of life but a state of mind, a temper of the will, a quality of the imagination, a predominance of courage over timidity, of the appetite for adventure over the love of ease.  It is a revolutionary world we live in, and thus, as I have said in Latin America and Asia, in Europe and in the United States, it is young people who must take the lead.  Thus you, and your young compatriots everywhere, have had thrust upon you a greater burden of responsibility than any generation that has ever lived.

Fragments: Growing
When we are children we dream
Of growing up,
Be an adult doing adult things.
We never understand
That it takes a very long time
To become young.
