Quote #48, My Thoughts and YOUR thoughts

I love Quotes. I love them because they make me think. What does the quoter mean? Why did he/she write this? Is there a message to get through to the reader/the world? What did YOU initially think when you read it?

Here goes blog quote #48....

"One of the virtues of being young is that you don't let the facts get in the way of your imagination."
-Sam Levenson-

When I first read this, I thought, Wow.. this is truer than most would like to admit. I then questioned.. At what age does this start to happen? And why? What is it about 'growing up' that we get so serious, so business- like, and our imaginations give way to the supposed, "realities of life"?

What realities? We are only as young as we feel, and think, and IMAGINE.

"Come with me, and you' ll be, in a world of pure imagination. Take a look, and you'll see, into your imagination. We'll begin, with a spin, traveling in, the world of my creation. What we'll see, will defy, explanation."

"If you want to view Paradise, simply look around and view it. Anything you want to, do it. Wanna change the world? There's nothing to it."

Words from the great song 'Pure Imagination' by Willy Wonka. Two tips for you.
1. Don t lose your imagination.
2. Rent the movie.. Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory( original with Gene Wilder).

That's my view.....WHAT SAY YOU?

There is definitely something with age....and that is you are as young as you feel.It is just a NUMBER. I am 53, sometimes I feel like 80 and sometimes...actually MOST of the time I feel like 10. Being above 50 is a JOY!!! I can do ANYTHING I want NOW....welll I could do that when I was 40 as well, but NOW it is much easier to jump around like Tigger and go bounza, bounza!!! Happy Birthday. Celebrate every Day!
