About This Episode
We are a culture that celebrates youth. But is being young really all it’s cracked up to be? As Morrie Schwartz said during one of his Tuesday interviews with host Mitch Albom, “I know what a misery youth is, so don’t tell me it’s so great…cause I know better.” For centuries, humans have chased after the Fountain of Youth. How to look younger, act younger, feel younger. But when we shine a spotlight on the young, we ignore the important wisdom of those who have lived long enough to acquire decades of knowledge and experience. So the next time you find yourself pining for the you that was you so long ago, celebrate instead the stripes you have earned along the way.
