About this Quote
This quote suggests that individuals's age is not the best reason why they stop chasing their desires, but rather it is their choice to stop pursuing them that makes them feel old. To put it simply, when individuals give up on their hopes as well as aspirations, they lose their sense of objective and also vitality, as well as thus feel like they have actually aged.
