Elizabeth Gaskell, North and South

Amit Kalantri

Robert Henri
“Be game--take a chance--don't hide behind veils and veils of discretion... Go forward with what you have to say, expressing things as you see them. You are new evidence, fresh and young. Your work, the spirit of youth, you are the progress of human evolution. If age dulls you it will be time enough then to be ponderous and heavy--or quit. It takes a tremendous amount of courage to be young, to continue growing--not to settle and accept.”
Robert Henri, The Art Spirit

Suman Pokhrel

Thomas Pynchon, V.

Arthur Conan Doyle
“But you have the nimble mind and quick fancy of youth, turning over from the thing that is half done to a further task beyond.”
Arthur Conan Doyle, Sir Nigel

Citizens, brethrens, go to school on a daily, a number of them on a muddy road, bare footed on a scorching sunshine with an undying hope of a better tomorrow..
Every one well convinced by the education system that there is a wage for the daily walk, Self torture is the process one has to go through in my homeland..
The only key to success is education they all say..
They used to say, They say..
For the few that fend their way out come up with the deep developed thirst for the dreamt life..
Only to be asked later on what's your name?..
Who sent you?
These questions become the last password to the highly dreamt world..
It takes great courage for one to get the answers for the seemingly little questions.
Millions of the youth shy away in desperation back to their roots..
The dreamt life becomes the dreaded one..
They were taught that one day they Will walk on to the streets of the world as kings...
Adorable kings..
They have to..
They have to find a life on the streets...
They can't go back to the same life they despised..
They are now so full with hope..

They meet a number of alikes.. All seated wondering what next, how to sleep like kings they were trained to be..
Of course in the deserted ends of the town..
They are in hiding.. Hiding from the expectant world..
Not in pride but shame
To live in shame is soaring and they need comfort..
They pass time by taking a puff... Not a mere puff but of the unknown substance...
To find homage..
They are in numbers remember so frightened..

As times go on...
Hope is gone..
But each day on its own
They are the youth of my country

I suppose I have found it easier to identify with the characters who verge upon desperacy, who are frightened of life, who are desperate to reach out to their dreams . But these seemingly fragile people are the strong people really...
This is one more piece of advice I have for you: don't get impatient. Even if things are so tangled up you can't do anything, don't get desperate or blow a fuse and start yanking on one particular thread before it's ready to come undone. You have to realize it's going to be along process and that you'll work on things slowly, one at a time...
Just keep the hopes alive, time matters..
Derrick Barara

Hermann Hesse
“There are many ways by which God can make us feel lonely and lead us to a consciousness of ourselves. With me it was in this way: it was like a bad dream, in which I saw myself ostracized, foul and clammy, creeping restlessly and painfully over broken beer glasses, down an abominably unclean road. There are such dreams, when you imagine you have set out to find a beautiful princess, but you stick in stinking back streets full of rubbish and dirty puddles. So it was with me. In this scarcely refined way I was destined to become lonely and to put between myself and my childhood a locked door of Eden over against which stood merciless sentinels on guard in beaming rays of light. It was a beginning, an awakening of that homesickness, that longing to return to my true self.”
Herman Hesse, Demian / La leyenda del rey indio

Cameron Crowe
“Isn’t what being young is about? Believing secretly that you would be the one person in the history of man who would live forever.”
Cameron Crowe

William Faulkner
“Mrs Armstid does not rattle the stove now, though her back is still toward the younger woman. Then she turns. They look at one another, suddenly naked, watching one another; the young woman in the chair, with her neat hair and her inert hands upon her lap, and the older one beside the stove, turning motionless too, with a savage screw of gray hair at the base of her skull, and a face that might have been carved in sandstone. Then the younger one speaks.”
William Faulkner, Light in August

Alice Hoffman
“To be young and alive was a glorious thing. When you possessed it, you were likely unable to fully comprehend that it was a marvel and a gift, no matter your circumstances.”
Alice Hoffman, The Book of Magic

Graham Greene
“I made many economies in my youth and they were fairly painless because the young do not particularly care for luxury. They have other interests than spending and can make love satisfactorily on a Coca-Cola, a drink which is nauseating in age. They have little idea of real pleasure: even their love-making is apt to be hurried and incomplete. Luckily in middle age pleasure begins, pleasure in love, in wine, in food. Only the taste for poetry flags a little, but I would have always gladly lost my taste for the sonnets of Wordsworth [...] if I could have bettered my palate for wine. Love-making too provides as a rule more prolonged and varied pleasure after forty-five. Aretino is not a writer for the young.”
Graham Greene, Travels with My Aunt

“Wise men never grow up, because the spirit of youthfulness is a bed fellow of optimism that is the only reality in disruptive business models, machine learning, invasion of digitization or acute family turblance.”
Qamar Rafiq

B.S. Murthy
“Youth is the mirror that tends us to the reality of our looks. The reflections of our visages that insensibly get implanted in our subconscious lend shape to our psyche to define the course of our life.”
B.S. Murthy, Crossing the Mirage - Passing through Youth

“You're never too old to be young.”
Charles F Glassman

Giulia Nepote
“Sarà che siamo giovani. Tutti si aspettano da noi che ci buttiamo in una folle danza sfrenata e noi lo facciamo. Può sembrare stupido, ma è così. Sappiamo tutti che questo è il nostro momento per fare qualcosa di stupido, di folle, di pericoloso. Sentiamo sulla pelle il ticchettare dell'orologio che ci urla che abbiamo solo pochi anni ancora per lasciarci andare alla vita. Poi arriveranno i doveri, le responsabilità. Una volta che ci avranno raggiunti non potremo più essere pazzi. Perciò è questo il momento di esserlo”
Giulia Nepote, Una folle danza sfrenata

Brian Spellman

Youth is the spirit of discovery.”
