My dear,

Plead not for offerings from the old master, but from the young lover.

Yes, the lover is young, and inexperienced in the ways of the world – but that’s exactly why you should seek them. Trust me, being experienced in the ways of the world is not a compliment, the world is cruel and it makes you hard. Seek the ones whose souls are not yet hard, seek the ones whose smiles are not yet guarded, and seek the ones who’d first kiss you than think about kissing you (even worse are the ones who tell you that they want to kiss you instead of just doing it). You don’t want the thinkers right now, that comes later.

And, anyways, trust me,

Kisses are a better fate than wisdom.

Falsely yours,
Edward Estlin Cummings
