Youth is a thing of the spirit—No matter what circumstances or duties or cares tend to drag you down—youth always must be retained—

The courage for experiment is a mark of youth—& seeing life as a poem is another—

The courage to see nature with the great graphic shorthand of youth—

Charles Burchfield, May 15, 1922
