I dont believe in the quote at all because i have read like, biographies, of scholars and professors, always doing research, and always discovering stuff. They were the epitome of wise and knowledgeable. The term used in the book was polymath. It means they learned from a broad range of fields. My favorite was Jose Rizal. He is filipino, like me. :) He was a poet, optometrist, journalist, novelist, biologist, painter, multilinguist and a political scientist. The man could study. But him, as all of the people in those book share one very big thing in common- THEY ARE ALL DEAD. so no i dont believe in that quote. :)
Im not sure I would use the word "study" but I do think that keeping your mind active and curious does keep you young, yes. Age is all about attitude. I know people in their eighties and ninties who I simply dont think of as being old. I also know people in their twenties and thirties who do seem old.
Yes I believe it. But my interpretation of studying is to keep learning things. My grandfather is a perfect example of someone that is still young at age 80 due to learning new things and keeping his mind active all through out his life.
I think that its pretty true... I don't think it nessecarily means studying like school things, but more "Learning (just about anything) keeps your mind young." and really, you are only as young as you feel ;)
You are absolutely right and i also believe this. I keep reading books as reading is also my habit. As you said here, i also say that one can read any book of interest
I never said that by reading books wail stay alive. I just meant, by continuing habit of reading anything one will stay active throughout his lifetime
haha way to copy my answer ;)
