“When adults say, “Teenagers think

they are invincible” with that sly, stupid smile

on their faces, they don’t know how right they are.

We need never be hopeless, because we can never be

irreparably broken. We think that we are invincible

because we are. We cannot be born, and we cannot

die. Like all energy, we can only change shapes and

sizes and manifestations. They forget that when they

get old. They get scared of losing and failing. But that

part of us greater than the sum of our parts cannot

begin and cannot end, and so it cannot fail.”

  1. Young fear failure , fear anonymity a lot more than the old.
    The old fear death. If they have not lived life.
