Zeal and Prudence

Youth is impetuous
dashing forth with
blind zeal which
often overcomes obstacles
caution would not solve.

Yet some situations
require prudence, thus
the wisdom of elders is

The elder should not
extinguish the passions
of youth. Those with less
experience can benefit from
the knowledge of life.
Ideas need not conflict but
rather let them merge into
enthusiastic wisdom.
