15 Movie Quotes about Youth

Age is just a number
Nevertheless, our culture is obsessed with youth. From hair dyes to Botox, wrinkle creams and surgical procedures, Photoshop and Snapchat filters, the race is on to remain forever young. It's no surprise that beauty is a Multi-Billion Dollar industry which lures people with the (false) hope of eternal youth. To make matters worse, we are reminded daily of it with images via magazines, billboards, television and the internet. Let’s face it, youth is a global currency. It's the epitome of beauty, vitality, fun and the most exciting time of our lives, when we are not afraid to dream big and everything seems possible. That's why we try to stop, or at least, slow down the aging process. But trying to remain 'superficially' young, meaning being hot, fit and healthy, is not enough anymore. In the digital era, with unlimited access to information, it is of utmost importance that you keep up to date with the continuous changing technology, especially in the workplace environment, otherwise the risk of being left behind is high. Good luck with finding a filter for that (oh the irony).

Thirty-five summers.
