Wednesday’s Piece

“Youth is past when the sensation of adventure is ended, when instead of the boundless expectation and curiosity that penetrates all the corners of existence, a man is content to take things as they are, when eagerness gives way to complacency and questioning to the cynicism of experience. The man devoid of curiosity is the man who in the end attains to nothing.”

(The Living Age, an American weekly journal published between 1844 – 1900)
