Today's quote is from C. S. Lewis, author and atheist turned believer.
You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.
This is deeply personal to me because I am not so young as most of you, my blogging buddies. Sometimes I get to feeling like I've started too late in this quest to find an agent and get a book published, particularly when I see all the fresh young faces that grace book covers and blog sites.
Sometimes it makes me feel ancient. But do not confuse feeling ancient with feeling old. There's a difference. I think feeling old has more to do with one's physical state of being while feeling ancient has more to do with ones accumulated knowledge and wisdom.
Whenever I sort of get to feeling like giving up I think of this quote. I believe thinking that we are never too old to do and try and dream new things is major preventative medicine against feeling old, even when you're sick or hurting.
So I ask, what do you think about growing older, growing wiser?
PS have any of you read his Space Trilogy? The three books are: Out of the Silent Planet, Perelandra and That Hideous Strength. I read them when I was in high school. I need to read them again, I'm sure I'd get WAY more out of them, now that I'm older and wiser.
