Quotation for Friday 1st May 2020

Good morning everyone.

I've chosen Bob Dylan as my inspiration for today and his song 'Forever Young'. It's always been one of my favourites, and I've always imagined his song was intended to be about remaining young in mind and heart and that's a wonderful goal for anyone.

"May God bless and keep you always

May your wishes all come true

May you always do for others

And let others do for you

May you build a ladder to the stars

And climb on every rung

May you stay forever young

May you stay forever young

May you grow up to be righteous

May you grow up to be true

May you always know the truth

And see the light surrounding you

May you always be courageous

Stand upright and be strong

May you stay forever young

May you stay forever young

May your hands always be busy

May your feet always be swift

May you have a strong foundation

When the winds of changes shift

May your heart always be joyful

May your song always be sung

And may you stay forever young

May you stay forever young"

Please all be young at heart today, and have a good one! Take care. πŸ™πŸŒˆ

Hi Lynd,

Don't get me started with that days thing! I even labelled one of my quotations wrongly this week. So you are in quite a lot of good company I think! 🀣

That's quite funny Jerry, as I've just been over to YouTube to singalongaBob! 🀣

Good morning Callendersgal, what a wonderful song to brighten up my day . PS , I'm still 21 at heart ❀️

Great words, I once chatted with a lady in her nineties, she told me, even though the body grows old, the brain is far behind it and she felt and thought like she always had. She said she didn't feel the way people perceived her, she said, your as old as your feel and she was young at heart. 😊😊

Hi bobbybobb, I echo that. I haven't quite reached that grand old age, but you have only to hear of Captain (Colonel) Tom Moore, to know that if you are lucky enough for your brain to survive the ravages of old age, you don't actually think much differently to the way you thought or felt when younger. And like Captain Tom, you can push yourself physically to achieve feats that many younger people would baulk at. 🌈

Yes, it is so true isn't it. 🌸🌷🌻

Thank you Callendersgal,

To have the innocence, playfulness and imagination of children is a wonderful thing.

Have a great day too x

Wonderful, I love πŸ’• it.

Oh I love Bob Dylan , I think he’s very underrated as a poet , though he is a Nobel prize winner for literature πŸ‘

I really liked that one. Will keep it and reflect from time to time. Thanks.

😊

I do love that one Callendersgal

My mum always used to say to me that I might be (whatever age she was at the time) but inside I still feel like a young girl. My mum was an absolute inspiration to me, she was kind, generous, strong and so charitable, an amazing person.

My day, he was the kindest, most loving father anyone could have wished for.

Stay young at heart always is my motto. :)

Thank you

How wonderful lovely words thank you 🌈❀️
