Meeting the Spirit of our Youth

My 72-year-old self and my 12-year-old self
have decided to come together in this guy

Rudolf Steiner:  "For when a man is face to face with the Spirit of his own Youth — and such a thing is always possible — then he gives something of his riper understanding to the childlike ideas of the Spirit of his Youth, and at the same time the Spirit of his Youth gives something of his freshness, his childlikeness, to what the man of older years possesses."

"A merry heart doeth good like a medicine."  — Proverbs 17:22

"You should be leading lives of joy   deep inner joy in the truth! There is nothing in the world more delightful, nothing more fascinating, than the experience of truth."  — Rudolf Steiner

"Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say, Rejoice."  — Philippians 4:4

"Rejoice, and be exceeding glad"  — Matthew 5:12

Goethe:  "To what avail is all expenditure and labor of suns and planets and moons, of stars and galaxies, of comets and of nebulae, and of completed and still growing worlds, if not at last a happy man rejoices in his existence?”
