MAX O'RELL ON KEEPING YOUNG. [Newspaper Article] — Glengarry, Toongabbie and Cowwarr Journal and Central Gippsland Reporter — 6 February 1914
MAX O'RELL ON KEEPING YOUNG. It is restlessness, ambition, discon tent and disquietude that make us . grow old prematurely by carving wrinkles on "our faces. Wrinkles do not appear on faces that have con stantly smiled. Smiling is the best possible massage. Contentment is the Fountain of Youth. We complain when we ought to be thankful, we weep when we ought to rejoice, we fidget and fret. Instead of smiling, which keeps the- cheeks stretched and smooth, we frown which keeps them contracted and en graves - wrinkles on them.' Instead of looking at the rosy side of things, which makes the eyes clear and bright, we run after the impossible or the un likely to happen, which makes us look gloomy. In short, I may say that old age is of our own make, for youth is placed at one's disposal for ever and ever. The organs of man are like the . works of a clock. If they are not used, they rust. So long as the human ma chine is kept well oiled and regularly wound up, it goes. It Is activity, it is...
