I have been doing this topic in english called the outsiders and we had to
read the book and i took it apon myself to watch the movie to. It was a
good movie and a sad book but this poem gave it meaning it played a big
part in it and i loved it.
Love Dannie

I LOVED the poem. When I read the Book... Outsiders.. it clicked to me that
don't take things for grant, and you may think things are awesome now, but
they won't be awesome forever. Johnny and Ponyboy cherrished their
friendship, because soon.... it will end.

You know, I read the outsiders, and this was really deep. But yesterday, I
saw an episode of the simpsons. Bart realizes he's not a kid anymore and
puts all his toys in a raft. Then he puts it into a boat and lights it on
fire. Then someone behind him says "nothing gold can stay forever" and
suddently, the whole thing made sense...

I Love this poem!! I just think that it just fits with how our lives and
our world works! If only It were as simple as you described it. I too read
the book "The Outsiders" and thought the poem fit just right!

I loved this poem so much!! In this poem, it means that treasure your youth
no matter what. It also means that whenever you have an opportunity, take
it. It may be stressful onto you, but in the end, you learn something.
Don't cry because it's over, smile because you learned something.
:P

I never really understood the meaning of this particular poem when i read
and watched "The Outsiders" in my grade 8 lanugaue class. But i think i
understand now. It means that nothing true, nothing truly gold can stay for
ever, can stay a life time. And that u should cherish every single minute
you have, cause it could be taken away from you in a snap.Ponyboy and
Johnny held on and cherrished what friendship they had... and thats why
nothing gold can stay.
