There is a fountain of youth. It’s your mind. When you learn to tap this resource, you’ll truly have defeated age. (Sophia Loren, actress)

Men have looked for the fountain of youth in vain, but Loren’s observation is helpful. We can stay young mentally if we exercise our thinking abilities. But former US President Woodrow Wilson had another helpful idea: “We should not only use the brains we have, but all that we can borrow.” Use the brains God has given you, but don’t hesitate to use others’ as well.

Those who take advice are wise. … Get all the advice and instruction you can, so you will be wise the rest of your life. … Plans succeed through good counsel. (Proverbs 13:10; 19:20: 20:18)
