As you know, The passage of time is something that happens and you can not hide. As the time passes by, you start to feel older, you get wrinkles,gray hair will come out, and all that you though was life is now dissolved. Your youth has gone, and it won't come back. Sometimes I fell stressed about this, I don't like to be old, I want to live, and I enjoy live, so I'd like to be young forever, I do not mean 100 or 1000 years, but to live as a young until the day I die. Have you had this feeling? What do you think about it? Would you like to be forever young?

I do want to keep learning, so in that sense, I'd like to be young but I also would like to learn from my mistakes and be wise. I think most of the time, if you're mentally young you're physically young. But I don't want to be childish forever.

While I don't like getting older, I also would not want to be young forever. I'd hate to stay young while everyone around me was growing older and older. I'll just deal with aging and live out my life. [b]**AT PEACE WITHIN** ~~STAND STRONG IN YOUR BELIEFS~~[/b]

Oh yea, I would definitely like to be young forever. I recently feel like an old lady already... but I'm only 20+ maybe because I just had a baby so things changed. I think I'm always young mentally but the look will eventually get old... wrinkles and stuff which is the thing that I never want to see :-(... I wish I could physically stay 21 forever and enver look OLD

yes that's right that time passed by and as the times goes by wrinkles, gray hair and a lot of body pain appear as sign of getting old.

When I was 15 years old, I felt my skin as smooth as feathers, but now i am 32 years old i feel the difference in my skin texture, wrinkles started, white hairs started. There is no stopping in aging. We cannot break natures rules. After all we have to give a chance to next generation

Wrinkles and grey hair are signs of wisdom and maturity. I think i just want to enjoy life while i'm young and that is the secret of growing old gracefully.

When I was young, I never thought I would become old, and even if I become old, I would not be bothered about it. But when I really became old, I feel I should become young. I never thought I will be thinking like this, when I reached 50, but yes when you cross 50, you like to be young again.Yes I am like you, I do not want to live forever, in fact I would be happy even if I die this very minute.But yes I would like to die young.

Well, I am of different thinking, I think every age has its own dignity. Young age is really nice age, you are full of energy...you've enthusiasm...after all you're full of hope. While at old age, you become slight dull, you don't have as much energy....but at this age you're full of experiences from life....you're tension free....everybody respects you as being elder....these things are to be experienced in life. So, I don't wanna be young forever, I want to feel every age of life.

Hey, Everyone like to be young till the last breathe of life, so what can we do to achieve it. I guess we can do it by keeping our thoughts and heart younger. We should move ourself with the pace of time and try to remain fit and healthy. Health and fitness count very much, because if you are fit and healthy then you can do the tough cores like the youngsters and will feel like a youngster. My dear, nobody wants to look outdated and old.

Sort of like a vampire who never grows old. Yes, I've toyed with the idea of staying young forever. It's interesting to do all the things you can imagine doing. And once you've done it, the maybe you'll find the answer to the question of true fulfillment.

Honesty I want to be that way, forever young. Some other people too. But, I accept the truth about what we'll going through as a human being. We are humans and somebody we gonna die, but I want to live my life fully and happy, in that way we feel that'we're still young forever. Feeling forever young means living with God, truly loving someone, enjoy life, contented, and accept the fact that we cannot change the what God has given to us. don't think too much about this subject, dying, bad dreams, etc...think beautifully and your life will freely be happy.

Of course yes, I would like to be young forever, How old I always like is 21 because you are independent and know you have a lifetime ahead to fulfill your dreams and of course see you young and energetic

I once heard a quote by Ingrid Bergman: "Old age is like climbing a mountain. You climb from ledge to ledge. The higher you get, the more tired and breathless you become - but your view becomes more extensive" and think that is nice way to look at it. Physically we don't get stronger when we get older, but we get more experience. When I was 18 I had friends who were 25 and they were jealous at me, they said to me "I wish I were 18 again". When I was 25 I had friends who were 35 and they said the same thing, they all wanted to be 25 instead of 35. I never really understood why they were so jealous of me, and I have a different opinion. Now I am 34 and I don't want to be younger than I am. I was very shy and insecure when I was younger and I had very little experience. A lot of things are easier for me today, and I don't want to be be 18 or 25 again.

Physically, yes. I must admit that I hate it sometimes knowing that I'm no longer a young as I used to be. Not because of the physical beauty that I used to have and waned as time passes me by but because there is something vibrant about being young. You can do almost all things that older people can't, like strenuous activities such as exercising, walking a farther miles , to name a few.:) And of course, young people are seem privilege to explore and discover new things without having to worry about running out of time. And yes, I want to remain forever young because I still want to do a lot of things in this life.:) However, since growing old id inevitable, I have no choice but to od the best I can to growl old gracefully. And to do that, I have to accept that I am no longer as young as I used to.

Well maybe not forever young....maybe just a little more flexible etc. I don't mind my age. It's the pains that go with it that are hard to adjust to. But I had my youth....and now that I am older I know I wouldn't want to go through that again!
