In one of his many youth quotes, George Bernard Shaw mused, "Youth is a wonderful thing. What a crime to waste it on children." But as we grow older we start to realize that youth isn't a state connected to the passage of time, but one connected to a feeling of timelessness. We may grow old, but we don't necessarily have to grow up. Sophia Loren perhaps said it best in one of her youth quotes: "There is a fountain of youth: it is your mind, your talents, the creativity you bring to your life and the lives of people you love. When you learn to tap this source, you will truly have defeated age."

Born Marion Morrison, John Wayne was the son of a pharmacist. Wayne got into acting after becoming a friend of actor Tom Mix who got him a job as a prop man in exchange for football tickets to USC, where Wayne played.

He went on to appear in a string of major motion pictures, including The Alamo, The Green Berets and Fort Apache. He is perhaps best known for his role as Rooster Cogburn in True Grit, which earned him an Oscar.
