a: Youth ~
b: a motorcycle

What:

"Youth is like a motorcycle! Although the adults say it is too dangerous and ask us not to ride on it but kids will still hop on it.They will ride it to a high speed and it is just like youth. When you want to do, then you will do it. Even though you don't really want to do it,you will finally turn out doing it. If you are overspeed, then you will miss out some scenery and will experience setbacks if you don't know where you are heading to."

The frustration as a result of multitude of problems is increasing day by day.

What:

"In fact, Socrates asks, "Is not the noble youth very like a well-bred dog in respect of guarding and watching?" But, to complexify the argument, Socrates also argues that the dog is very much like a philosopher because "he distinguishes the face of a friend and of an enemy only by the criterion of knowing and not knowing" (II 376b). Before returning to this statement, we can almost sketch a syllogism with major and minor premises:"... see the link...
