About this Quote

This quote by Lillie Langtry speaks to the value of having a purpose in life. The sentimentality of life can result in stagnation and an absence of growth. When we become too connected to the past, we can end up being stuck in our methods and not able to progress. On the other hand, those who love their work and accept brand-new challenges are able to remain engaged and motivated. They are able to stay young at heart and continue to learn and grow. This quote is a reminder that life is about more than just sentimentality. It is about accepting brand-new chances and remaining open to change. It has to do with discovering joy in the work we do and the difficulties we deal with. By doing so, we can stay young and dynamic, no matter our age.
