Southern Comfort Quilters
It's difficult to let go of youth, because that release requires an acknowledgment of death. I suspect that those of us who opt for eternal youth are setting ourselves up for heavy bouts of depression.
As we age, our ideas formerly light, rambling, and unrelated to each other, become more densely gathered into values and a philosophy giving our lives substance and firmness.
(Thomas Moore, Care Of The Soul, p. 139 & 141)
