Age versus youth- we'd all rather be young than old. But I would rather hang out with young people- they put life back into life. Unfortunately, while young people enjoy my company- given a choice they probably would rather be with their buddies doing their own dumb things rather than listen to tales of dumb thing done in the past.

Hmmm...Age and youth. 'Age i abhor thee, Youth i adore thee'....Metaphysical. Shakespeare indeed that shakes our sphere.

Well thought out difference between the youth and old age brilliantly explained. Amazing. Thanks. Youth is hot and bold, Age is weak and cold,

Youth and age are two matters not matching together it seems according to Shakespeare! Youth is like heart ever romantic but age is like winter cold to go according to heart's desire!

Madrigal is a secular form of music often used as a partsong. It was very popular during the time of Renaissance. It was polyphonic and usually unaccompanied, since it used a plenty of voices.

Shakespeare compares Youth and “Crabbed age” (old age) . He describes them as a couple which cannot live together since they are the complete opposites of each other. While Youth id careless, summer-like and healthy, Age is weak, sad and has “short breath”.
