Another Middlemarch quote

"If youth is the season of hope, it is often so only in the sense that our elders are hopeful about us; for no age is so apt as youth to think its emotions, partings, and resolves are the last of their kind. Each crisis seems final, simply because it is new."

from George Eliot's MIDDLEMARCH
(pg 547)
