"There are two ..." Quote of Jessamyn West

Tuesday, November 11, 2014
There are two barriers that often prevent communication between the young and their elders. The first is middle-aged forgetfulness of the fact that they themselves are no longer young. The second is youthful ignorance of the fact that the middle aged are still alive.
