But, if this world is not merely a bad joke, life a vulgar flare amid  the cool radiance of the stars, and existence an empty laugh braying  across the mysteries, if there intimations of something behind and  behind are mot evil humor born of madden us ;if, in a word, beauty means  omething, yet we must not seek to interpret the meaning . 
            ——From New Concept English (Book 4, Lesson 29)  

Youth means a temperamental predominance of courage over timidity , of  the appetite for adventure over the love of ease ,This often exits in a  man of 60more than a boy of 20.Nobody grows merely by a number of years,  we grow old by deserting our idea .
              ——By Samuel Erman

Whether 60 or 16, there is in every human being's heart the lure of  wonders, the unfailing childlike appetite of what"s 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 the infinite, so long as you are young.
            ——By Samuel Erman   

An individual human existence should be like a river-small at first,  narrowly contained within its banks, and rushing passionately past  boulders and over waterfalls. Gradually the river grows wider, the banks  recede, the waters flow more quietly, and in the end, without any  visible break, they become merged in the sea, and painlessly lose their  individual being.
         ——From New Concept English (Book 4) 

Years may wrinkle the skin,but to give up enthusiasm wrinkles the soul.Worry, fear, self-distrust bows the heart  and turns the spirit back to dust.
