We miss being young because youth is an adventure. It is an opportunity be everything without knowing anything. It is a moment in eternity where ignorance is our best friend and we are unaware it is even our friend. It is to live life before life lives us and to age before we are aged. But above all, it is the absence of wisdom, experience, and knowledge, which all teach us that without gaining these, we would never understand the true gift that is youth.
