The Advantages of Being Young
There are so many advantages of being young that I think it would take me several hours to mention them all in detail. However, in my allotted time, I could list the principal ones.
Firstly, one good thing about being young is that one can make great plans for the future.
Next in order, I think, is the fact that when one is young, one’s mind is fresh and it is much easier to absorb new knowledge.
Thirdly, one can participate in all sorts of sports, including some of the very strenuous ones, without fear of the many serious consequences that elderly people would have to fear. But this, of course, also depends on one’s physical condition. No matter how young a person may be, if he is not physically fit, he must be on guard against over-straining himself.
Finally, when one is not yet advanced in age, one looks much more attractive in personal appearance. When he looks at himself in the mirror, he does not find the many ugly wrinkles on the face and neck, white hair on his head (or no hair at all), and dirty stains on his skin that make old people wince when they look at themselves.
Yes, it’s truly wonderful to be young and fit. I sometimes wish that I could always maintain my youth like Peter Pan and never grow old.
