Art for Inspiration: Young Lady in a Flower Garden by Tivadar Zemplényi

"Young Lady in a Flower Garden"
by Tivadar Zemplényi (1864 - 1917)

Youth is happy because it has the capacity to see beauty.
Anyone who keeps the ability to see beauty never grows old.
Franz Kafka

Remember, you cannot be both young and wise. Young people who pretend to be wise to the ways of the world are mostly just cynics. Cynicism masquerades as wisdom, but it is the farthest thing from it. Because cynics don’t learn anything. Because cynicism is a self-imposed blindness, a rejection of the world because we are afraid it will hurt us or disappoint us. Cynics always say no.
But saying “yes” begins things. Saying “yes” is how things grow. Saying “yes” leads to knowledge. “Yes” is for young people. So for as long as you have the strength to, say “yes.”
Stephen Colbert

There is a certain part of all of us that lives outside of time.
Perhaps we become aware of our age only at exceptional moments
and most of the time we are ageless.
Milan Kunder
