A Quote by Siddhartha Gautama Buddha on ignorance, death, disgust, horror, sick, illness, health, intoxication, old, age, knowledge, empathy, compassion, understanding, and youth

When ignorant people see someone who is old, they are disgusted and horrified, even though they too will be old some day.  I thought to myself:  I don't want to be like the ignorant people.  After that, I couldn't feel the usual intoxication with youth anymore.

When ignorant people see someone who is sick, they are disgusted and horrified, even though they too will be sick some day.  I thought to myself:  I don't want to be like the ignorant people.  After that, I couldn't feel the usual intoxication with health anymore.

When ignorant people see someone who is dead, they are disgusted and horrified, even thought they too will be dead some day.  I thought to myself:  I don't want to be like the ignorant people.  After then, I couldn't feel the usual intoxication with life anymore

Buddha (563 - 483 BC)

A Quote by Thomas Henry Huxley on education, beauty, youth, knowledge, and passion

That man(and woman), has had a liberal education who has been so trained in youth that his(or her) body is the ready servant of his(or her) will, and does with ease and pleasure all the work that, as a mechanism, it is capable of;  whose intellect is a clear, cold, logic engine, with all its parts of equal strength, and in smooth working order; ready, like a steam engine, to be turned to any kind of work, and spin the gossamers as well as forge the anchors of the mind; whose mind is stored with a knowledge of the great and fundamental truths of Nature and of the laws of her operations; one who, no stunted ascetic, is full of life and fire but whose passions are trained to come to heel by a vigorous will, the servant of a tender conscience; who has learned to love all beauty, whether of Nature or of art, to hate all vileness, and to respect others as himself.

A Quote by Hermann Hesse on hesse, youth, age, happy, and sad

Age is a state of mind.
Youth and age exist only among the ordinary people.
All the more talented and exceptional of us;
are sometimes old,
just as we are sometimes happy,
and sometimes sad.

Hermann Hesse (1877 - 1962)
