If "staying gold" is staying young, what does "staying silver" mean?
One of the most famous quotes from the movie The Outsiders was Johnny telling Ponyboy to "Stay Gold" in which he meant "always be true to yourself and to follow your dreams."
I never heard "staying gold" or "staying silver," but I always like to give a shout-out to one of my favorite movies whenever possible!
I loved the book by CSL and the movie was enjoyable and also bred Tom Cruise, Emilio Estevez, Patrick Swayze, Ralph Maccio, Matt Dillon, and Diane Lane into stardom. In the movie, they use it as a metaphor to how Ponyboy digs sunsets still. I'm asking for the equivalent to silver.
Similar to the fact that all that glitters is not gold, staying young does not mean staying energetic as well. Hence staying Silver would mean staying energetic.
Just like an ocean is not enough,
To irrigate the land, there is a need of river.
Staying Gold is not enough,
To shine one should also stay silver.
I can only guess (with a wink) that staying silver means that you've decided to let your hair go naturally gray without getting caught up in the monthly ritual of dying it! My dad was in Y-Indian Guides and his Indian name was Silver Fox, which he attributed to his wavy, silver locks - sure do miss him. Thanks for a little nostalgia!
I guess "staying silver" means to stay pure, peaceful and just.
