    Maturity Quotes

    Quotations about Maturity

    • By the time I'd grown up, I naturally supposed that I'd be grown up.
    • What I look forward to is continued immaturity followed by death.
    • Age is no guarantee of maturity.
      The Courtship of the Vicar's Daughter, 1998, by Lawana Blackwell
    • Adulthood isn't an award they'll give you for being a good child. You can waste... years, trying to get someone to give that respect to you, as though it were a sort of promotion or raise in pay. If only you do enough, if only you are good enough. No. You have to just... take it. Give it to yourself, I suppose. Say, I'm sorry you feel like that and walk away. But that's hard.
      A Civil Campaign, 1999, by Lois McMaster Bujold
    • Maturity is only a short break in adolescence.
    • Every human being on this earth is born with a tragedy, and it isn't original sin. He's born with the tragedy that he has to grow up. That he has to leave the nest, the security, and go out to do battle. He has to lose everything that is lovely and fight for a new loveliness of his own making, and it's a tragedy. A lot of people don't have the courage to do it.
      in Roy Newquist, Showcase, 1966, by Helen Hayes
    • To be mature means to face, and not evade, every fresh crisis that comes.
    • When we were children, we used to think that when we were grown-up we would no longer be vulnerable. But to grow up is to accept vulnerability... To be alive is to be vulnerable.
      "Walking on Water: Reflections on Faith and Art", 1980, by Madeleine L'Engle
    • My Father taught me how to be a man -- and not by instilling in me a sense of machismo or an agenda of dominance. He taught me that a real man doesn't take, he gives; he doesn't use force, he uses logic; doesn't play the role of trouble-maker, but rather, trouble-shooter; and most importantly, a real man is defined by what's in his heart, not his pants.
      My Boring Ass Life, 06-01-05, by Kevin Smith
    • The purpose of life is to fight maturity.
