Age Considers Youth Ventures
Rabindranath Tagore Quote
Age Considers Youth Ventures; Rabindranath Tagore musing on how the risk reward ratio of choice changes through the process of aging.
The celebrated Indian poet Rabindranath Tagore wrote most of his works in his native Bengali and when he started to translate his works to English his creative acumen shone through earning him the 1913 Nobel prize for literature.
Although more famous for his poetry, Tagore was an accomplished writer across all the literary genre as he penned novels, dramas, fiction, essays and songs. His creative talent also saw him producing more than 2000 drawings and paintings.
Rabindranath Tagore was prolific with both the pen and the brush, his high standards never slipped with his works being given the great honour of being translated to many languages.
Age Considers Youth Ventures was just one of thousands of lines he quipped throughout his life. It stands out because it explains so much but only uses four words.
The Mistakes of Youth is the Wisdom of the Aged
As people age they get wiser and put more thought into their decisions whereas younger people tend to just jump in with a devil may care attitude.
Young people are prepared to push boundaries and try anything, it is this spirit of our youth that has been responsible for breaking down the barriers of travel and endurance and has kept propelling humanity forward with new accomplishments.
As we age we have learned from the mistakes of ourselves and others and this leads us to consider our options for accomplishing anything.
When in ones youth you feel indestructible and are prepared to venture into many things without a care in the world.
The Decreasing Risk Reward Ratio Of Choice
As one ages the risk reward ratio of choice decreases and this leads to less ventures being contemplated, this is considered the path to wisdom that the experience of your lifetime of mistakes have bestowed upon you.
Mistakes are lifes directions, if you are prepared to learn from them they should be turned into a positive experience not a negative one.
When Rabindranath Tagore observed that age considers while youth ventures he was describing the cycle of human life where if both perspectives can harmonise then great results can be achieved with the young adventurer still alive to see another day.
