Recently I begin to write English diary, but as soon as I take my pen, I don't know how to express myself in native English. Please help me to translate the Chinese into English as above.

书到用时方恨少 seldom read, then you wil feel depressed when you try to write.
少时不努力,老大徒伤悲no hard work in youth, no happiness in old age.

A lazy youth, a lousy age.

it is always true that one won't find he's still ignorant until he 's challenged with problems beyond his ability to solve.
idling young ages away,  sighing as the aged in vain

It's always too late to know you've not enough knowledge when you're in practice.
If one doesn't work hard when young, he will be sorrowful in vain when older.
