Youth is not a time of life—it is a state of mind. It is not a matter of ripe cheeks, red lips and supple knees. It is a temper of the will, a quality of the imagination, a vigor of the emotions. It is freshness of the deep springs of life. Nobody grows old by merely living a number of years. People grow old only by deserting their ideals. Years wrinkle the skin, but to give up enthusiasm wrinkles the soul. Swami Bua Ji Maharaj (1889-2010)

1 Enakshi Ganguly = ""Swamiji, as he was affectionately known by his students, along with contemporaries such as Swami Satchidananda, BKS Iyengar, and Swami Kailashananda, was one of the first Indian masters to bring the classical practices of traditional yoga to the United States. Since 1972 he resided alone in a small apartment near Columbus Circle in New York City, where he taught a rigorous form of Hatha Yoga to generations of students. A humble and dedicated teacher, SwamiJi was a personal Guru to his students and considered them part of his family. He was always accessible to them and took a personal interest in their welfare. He would often cook food for them after the class, engage in philosophic discussions, organize cooking classes, go on field trips to temples, and perform or attend their weddings."Source: http://www.southasiamail.com/news.php?id=75909"
