Maturity quotes by Kurt Vonnegut
#1. Article XXVIII: Every newborn shall be sincerely welcomed and cared for until maturity. Article XXIX: Every adult who needs it shall be given meaningful work to do, at a living wage. #Quote by Kurt Vonnegut
Maturity quotes by Aayush Jain
#2. To present is to take a stand and being responsible. #Quote by Aayush Jain
Maturity quotes by Suzy Kassem
#3. The parent is protector and trainer, but never the ultimate teacher. Every parent is responsible for teaching their kid basic moral conduct, manners, the difference between love and hate, and right from wrong. However, after maturity, the child must set off to seek knowledge on their own. Religion is never to be forced. And you cannot threaten your child with hell and tell them your religion is the only right way. There is no one right way. The many ways to the Creator are as varied as the colors of a rainbow. #Quote by Suzy Kassem
Maturity quotes by Mike Loffredo
#4. I am not half the man I use to think I was. #Quote by Mike Loffredo
Maturity quotes by Wesley Hill
#5. I know that whatever the complex origins of my own homosexuality are, there have been conscious choices I've made to indulge - and therefore to intensify, probably - my homoerotic inclinations. As I look back over the course of my life, I regret the nights I have given in to temptations to lust that pulsed like hot, itching sores in my mind. And so I cling to this image - washed. I am washed, sanctified, justified through the work of Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit. Whenever I look back on my baptism, I can remember that God has cleansed the stains of homosexual sin from the crevasses of my mind, heart, and body and included me in his family, the church, where I can find support, comfort, and provocation toward Christian maturity. #Quote by Wesley Hill
Maturity quotes by Richard Rohr
#6. People who have been initiated "broke through in what felt like breaking down". #Quote by Richard Rohr
Maturity quotes by Kurt Vonnegut
#7. Maturity, Bokonon tells us, is a bitter disappointment for which no remedy exists #Quote by Kurt Vonnegut
Maturity quotes by Jasper Fforde
#8. The Kingdom of Hereford was unique in the Ununited Kingdoms for having driving tests based on maturity, not age, much to the chagrin of a lot of males, some of whom were still failing to make the grade at thirty-two. #Quote by Jasper Fforde
Maturity quotes by T. S. Eliot
#9. What was to be the value of the long looked forward to,
Long hoped for calm, the autumnal serenity
And the wisdom of age? Had they deceived us
Or deceived themselves, the quiet-voiced elders,
Bequeathing us merely a receipt for deceit?
The serenity only a deliberate hebetude,
The wisdom only the knowledge of dead secrets
Useless in the darkness into which they peered
Or from which they turned their eyes. There is, it seems to us,
At best, only a limited value
In the knowledge derived from experience.
The knowledge imposes a pattern, and falsifies,
For the pattern is new in every moment
And every moment is a new and shocking
Valuation of all we have been. We are only undeceived
Of that which, deceiving, could no longer harm. #Quote by T. S. Eliot
Maturity quotes by Stephen R. Covey
#10. Maturity is the balance between courage and consideration. I #Quote by Stephen R. Covey
Maturity quotes by William Wordsworth
#11. ...The happy Warrior... 'tis, finally, the man, who, lifted high, conspicuous object in a nation's eye, or left unthought-of in obscurity,- who, with a toward or untoward lot, prosperous or adverse, to his wish or not- plays, in the many games of life, that one where what he most doth value must be won: whom neither shape or danger can dismay, nor thought of tender happiness betray; who, not content that former worth stand fast, looks forward, persevering to the last, from well to better, daily self-surpast: who, whether praise of him must walk the earth for ever, and to noble deeds give birth, or he must fall, to sleep without his fame, and leave a dead unprofitable name- finds comfort in himself and in his cause; and, while the mortal mist is gathering, draws his breath in confidence of Heaven's applause: this is the happy Warrior; this is he that every man in arms should wish to be. #Quote by William Wordsworth
Maturity quotes by Christine A. Courtois
#12. ... every therapist must develop enough personal maturity, clinical wisdom, and capacity for good judgment to effectively and safely conduct psychotherapy, an imperative that is especially important in the treatment of this population. The emotion dysregulation and insecure and disorganized attachment of complex trauma clients elicit strong emotional reactions from others, even those in their support network, including therapists. Reactions can range from sympathy, sorrow, fear, and guilt to frustration, impatience, anger/rage, hostility, and disgust or contempt. #Quote by Christine A. Courtois
Maturity quotes by Sarah J. Maas
#13. I didn't. My mother gave it to me as a keepsake, then took it back when I reached maturity - and gave it to the Weaver for safekeeping." "Why?" "So I wouldn't waste it. #Quote by Sarah J. Maas
Maturity quotes by Coach Taylor
#14. Marriage requires maturity. Marriage requires two people who, for the rest of their lives, are willing to listen, to really listen to each other. And that marriage requires the greatest of all things, compromise. #Quote by Coach Taylor
Maturity quotes by Louis L'Amour
#15. You don't think marriage is serious?" "Of course, I do. It is the ultimate test of maturity, and many find excuses for avoiding it because they know they are not up to the challenge, or capable of carrying on a mature relationship. #Quote by Louis L'Amour
Maturity quotes by Bruce C. Hafen
#16. Looking back, Colleen and Neal have somewhat different perspectives. . . . She remembers she "was impressed that he seemed to have so much charisma. People were looking to him for answers and just had a great regard for him." Then Neal adds, "So much charisma [that] she turned me down when I first asked her for a date." Fortunately for both, he called again, and this time she said yes. . . .

Colleen found herself increasingly drawn to him. She found him "really cute and interesting," even if he did lack just a little social polish. He didn't care for dancing and didn't like small talk, both of which were more important to other people than they were to her. He "was so knowledgeable and such a good speaker, even though he did talk fast. But if you could listen fast you could learn a lot." As Neal came to know her better, he was impressed with her maturity, her sensitivity to other people, and the depth of her spiritual convictions. He began feeling a "spiritual impetus that this was a young woman out of the ordinary." . . .

Emma remembered, "Our first introduction to Colleen was when you came home one night and said, 'I've got to see more of that girl. She has some thinking under her hood.'" . . . "I knew I was not dealing with an eighteen-year-old co-ed who was so anxious to please me that I'd have my way when I shouldn't," he said. "We hadn't been married long before I knew I had a kind of Gibraltar--someone who would be tough and strong in the storms o #Quote by Bruce C. Hafen
Maturity quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#17. When one is young, one venerates and despises without that art of nuances which constitutes the best gain of life, and it is only fair that one has to pay dearly for having assaulted men and things in this manner with Yes and No. Everything is arranged so that the worst of tastes, the taste for the unconditional, should be cruelly fooled and abused until a man learns to put a little art into his feelings and rather to risk trying even what is artificial - as the real artists of life do. #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche
Maturity quotes by John Andreas Widtsoe
#18. As I view it, in every family a record should be kept ... that record should be the first stone, if you choose, in the family altar. It should be a book known and used in the family circle; and when the child reaches maturity and goes out to make another household, one of the first things that the young couple should take along should be the records of their families, to be extended by them as life goes on ... each one of us carries, individually, the responsibility of record keeping, and we should assume it. #Quote by John Andreas Widtsoe
Maturity quotes by Ramana Maharshi
#19. Although the modes of meditation may appear to be different from one another, in the end all of them become one. There is no need to doubt this. One may adopt that path which suits the maturity of one's mind. #Quote by Ramana Maharshi
Maturity quotes by Bill Johnson
#20. Gifts are free; maturity is expensive. #Quote by Bill Johnson
Maturity quotes by Jay Kristoff
#21. Speaking of shabby looks, we're going to have to give you a haircut soon.
... WHAT?
These feathers are getting messy.
LET ME UNDERSTAND THIS CORRECTLY. YOU WISH TO CUT MY MANE?
Thunder tigers grow manes?
OF COURSE! HOW ELSE WOULD YOU TELL MALES FROM FEMALES?
This is a trick question, right?
A MANE IS A SIGN A MALE ARASHITORA HAS REACHED MATURITY.
Her laughter rang out in his mind.
So it's going to be a few more decades growing, then?
HMPH. I'LL HAVE YOU KNOW MOST FEMALES FIND IT FETCHING. #Quote by Jay Kristoff
Maturity quotes by John C. Maxwell
#22. The greatest day in your life and mine is when we take total responsibility for our attitudes. That's the day we truly grow up. #Quote by John C. Maxwell
Maturity quotes by Greg L. Hawkins
#23. Nothing has a greater impact on spiritual growth than reflection on Scripture. If churches could do only one thing to help people at all levels of spiritual maturity grow in their relationship with Christ, their choice is clear. They would inspire, encourage, and equip their people to read the Bible - specifically, to reflect on Scripture for meaning in their lives. The numbers say most churches are missing the mark - because only one out of five congregants reflects on Scripture every day. #Quote by Greg L. Hawkins
Maturity quotes by Marlon Brando
#24. Acting is the expression of a neurotic impulse. It's a bum's life. Quitting acting, that's the sign of maturity. #Quote by Marlon Brando
Maturity quotes by W.B.Yeats
#25. It is so many years before one can believe enough in what one feels even to know what the feeling is #Quote by W.B.Yeats
Maturity quotes by Mark Batterson
#26. In the words of Harriet Doerr, "One of the best things about aging is being able to watch imagination overtake memory." So who's right? The neurologists? Or Harriet? The answer is both. As we age, either imagination overtakes memory or memory overtakes imagination. Imagination is the road less taken, but it is the pathway of prayer. Prayer and imagination are directly proportional: the more you pray the bigger your imagination becomes because the Holy Spirit supersizes it with God-sized dreams. One litmus test of spiritual maturity is whether your dreams are getting bigger or smaller. The older you get, the more faith you should have because you've experienced more of God's faithfulness. And it is God's faithfulness that increases our faith and enlarges our dreams. There is certainly nothing wrong with an occasional stroll down memory lane, but God wants you to keep dreaming until the day you die. #Quote by Mark Batterson
Maturity quotes by Werner Erhard
#27. Maturity is doing whatever you want, even if your parents want the same thing. #Quote by Werner Erhard
Maturity quotes by David W. Earle
#28. Children have empty erasable white boards upon which big people write indelibly imprinted messages into their tender subconscious minds. #Quote by David W. Earle
Maturity quotes by Nik Ripken
#29. Personal trust and spiritual maturity were often in direct proportion to the amount of suffering that had been offered for the faith. #Quote by Nik Ripken
Maturity quotes by Janis Ian
#30. So remember those who win the game
Lose the love they sought to gain
In debitures of quality and dubious integrity
Their small-town eyes will gape at you
In dull surprise when payment due
Exceeds accounts received at seventeen #Quote by Janis Ian
Maturity quotes by Robert Lowell
#31. In it, he pushed the metric of typewriter spaces, and quoted from a poem, "The Catholic Bells," to show us Williams's "mature style at fifty"! This was a memorable phrase, and one that made maturity seem possible, but a long way off. I more or less memorized "The Catholic Bells," and spent months trying to console myself by detecting immaturities in whatever Williams had written before he was fifty. #Quote by Robert Lowell
Maturity quotes by Mike Yaconelli
#32. I just want to be remembered as a person who loved God, who served others more than he served himself, who was trying to grow in maturity and stability. #Quote by Mike Yaconelli
Maturity quotes by Jane Green
#33. Secrets become harder to keep the older you get. The things you think you can suppress, those idiosyncrasies and fantasies you hope no one will ever discover, become harder and harder to hide as the years advance.
Partly it is maturity-the fear of discovery grows smaller, less significant, for you learn that none of us is perfect, that human nature is flawed, that life twists and turns in all sorts of unexpected ways and it is okay to end up in a different place to where you expected. #Quote by Jane Green
Maturity quotes by Jim Highsmith
#34. a good set of questions to determine whether a project leader - or even an individual contributor - has an agile mindset might be, "In what specific ways and with what practices do you focus on value first and constraints last?" "In what specific ways and with what practices do you manage teams rather than tasks?" "In what specific ways and with what practices do you adapt to change rather than conform to plans?" Try these out in your organization to get a feel for your agile maturity. #Quote by Jim Highsmith
Maturity quotes by Nicholas Sparks
#35. You know ... it's a hard age. Kids are in that stage where they're beginning to understand the world of adults, without having the maturity of adults to deal with everything going on around them. #Quote by Nicholas Sparks
Maturity quotes by Heber J. Grant
#36. The doctrine of pre-existence pours a wonderful flood of light upon the otherwise mysterious problem of man's origin. It shows that man, as a spirit, was begotten and born of heavenly parents and reared to maturity in the eternal mansions of the Father, prior to coming upon the earth in a temporal body to undergo an experience in mortality. #Quote by Heber J. Grant
Maturity quotes by T.F. Hodge
#37. Apply expectations appropriately. Do not assume [all] adults are as grown up and mature as they should be, or appear to be. #Quote by T.F. Hodge
Maturity quotes by Peter David
#38. That was when it was all made painfully clear to me. When you are a child, there is joy. There is laughter. And most of all, there is trust. Trust in your fellows. When you are an adult ... then comes suspicion, hatred, and fear. If children ran the world, it would be a place of eternal bliss and cheer. Adults run the world; and there is war, and enmity, and destruction unending. Adults who take charge of things muck them up, and then produce a new generation of children and say, "The children are the hope of the future." And they are right. Children are the hope of the future. But adults are the damnation of the present, and children become adults as surely as adults become worm food.
Adults are the death of hope. #Quote by Peter David
Maturity quotes by Anna Banks
#39. We are not doing it for Jagen. We are doing it for our kind."
"We?" Rayna snaps. "What Gift do you have, Grom? Oh, that's right. You and Nalia get to stay safely behind while me and Galen and Emma drown an entire island."
Oh, heck no. "Um, I'm not killing anyone," I say, raising my hand. "Not humans, not Syrena."
"It's a good thing your Gift isn't deadly then, isn't it?" Rayna sneers. "I have an idea. You can give the humans their last meal. That would be special, wouldn't it?"
"How would you like to go without eating for a while?" I shoot back. I could use my Gift to send the fish away from her, or I could just bust all her teeth out. Maturity seems to be evaporating into the air. I wonder if her Gift includes pushing all my buttons in rapid-point-five seconds. But then, I know her animosity is really toward Grom, not me. All I'm doing is feeding her anxiety.
Galen tucks a tendril of my hair behind my ear. It's enough to distract me and he knows it. I give him a sour look for interfering, but he grins. "You don't have to kill anyone, angelfish. In fact, we need your help to save them." He seems to be telling me something with his eyes, but I'm not picking up on it. I'd love to blame it on the pain meds.
"Doesn't that kind of miss the point?" Rayna says.
"Of course not," Galen says. "Our objective is to rescue our kind, not kill the humans. We can do that without destroying them."
Everyone is all ears, but Galen is not ready to divulge #Quote by Anna Banks
Maturity quotes by Eleanor Roosevelt
#40. To be mature you have to realize what you value most ... Not to arrive at a clear understanding of one's own values is a tragic waste. You have missed the whole point of what life is for. #Quote by Eleanor Roosevelt
Maturity quotes by Jacquelyn Frank
#41. Gideon rose up to his full height, watching their progress as they faded into the night. He then turned his diamondlike eyes until they narrowed on the female Demon who had remained so still and quiet that she had gone unremembered. An interesting feat, considering the remarkable presence of the beauty.
"You have grown strong, Legna," he remarked quietly.
"In only a decade? I am sure it has not made much of a difference."
"To teleport me from such a great distance took respectful skill and strength. You well know it."
"Thank you. I shall have to remember to feel weak and fluttery inside now that you complimented me."
Gideon narrowed his eyes coldly on her. "You sound like that acerbic little human. It does not become you."
"I sound like myself," Legna countered, her irritation crackling through his thoughts as the emotion overflowed her control. "Or have you forgotten that I am far too immature for your tastes?"
"I never said such a thing."
"You did. You said I was too young to even begin to understand you." She lifted her chin, so lost in her wounded pride that she spoke before she thought. "At least I was never so immature that Jacob had to punish me for stalking a human."
Gideon's spine went extremely straight, his eyes glittering with warning as she hit home on the still-raw wound. "Maturity had nothing to do with that, and you well know it. It is below you to be so petty, Magdelegna."
"I see, so I am groveling around in t #Quote by Jacquelyn Frank
Maturity quotes by Chris Heimerdinger
#42. ...Teachings are given to different men under different circumstances and in different times... [but] ...the Lord is the same yesterday, today and forever. If a parent commands a little child not to play with matches, and then commands a teenager to light the campfire, is this a contradiction? It's only a question of preparedness - one is ready and one is not. #Quote by Chris Heimerdinger
Maturity quotes by W. H. Auden
#43. My poetry doesn't change from place to place - it changes with the years. It's very important to be one's age. You get ideas you have to turn down - 'I'm sorry, no longer'; 'I'm sorry, not yet. #Quote by W. H. Auden
Maturity quotes by Sunday Adelaja
#44. It is necessary to grow up in maturity, firmness and courage in order to reach the goal #Quote by Sunday Adelaja
Maturity quotes by Tracy L. Darity
#46. They drove back to her house in silence. Terrance pulled the car into the driveway and turned off the engine. Turning toward her, he said, "Khadejah, I really like you a lot and I don't want to hurt you. But I'm not a virgin and I like to have sex. If we're going to keep seeing each other, you've got to make a decision, because if I can't get it from you I'll get it from someone else." He looked her straight in her tear-filled eyes. "I need to know whether to get a room for after the concert. Let me know tomorrow." He reached over and opened her door.
Khadejah didn't say a word. She got out of the car and went into the house.
Terrance sat there for a few minutes wondering if he was being fair. She had to know that he was having sex. Damn, I should feel honored that she's still a virgin, he thought. Shit, I'll just have my cake and eat it, too.
Ten minutes later, Terrance was knocking on Adrienne's door. "Hey, can I come in? #Quote by Tracy L. Darity
Maturity quotes by Nicholas Sparks
#47. She understood then, with the distance that maturity brings, how much he'd loved her back then. And still did, something whispered inside her, and all at once she had the strange impression that everything they'd shared in the past had been the opening chapters in a book with a conclusion that had yet to be written. #Quote by Nicholas Sparks
Maturity quotes by Simone Elkeles
#48. Distance makes the heart grow fonder. #Quote by Simone Elkeles
Maturity quotes by Dave Grohl
#49. It's not until recently that I could even imagine myself as an adult. But these kids today, they look at me like I'm Neil Young. Nirvana is the band their parents listen to. #Quote by Dave Grohl
Maturity quotes by Paul Gitwaza
#50. Spiritual maturity is not measured by the years that you have spent in church, rather by your attitude before people different from you. #Quote by Paul Gitwaza
Maturity quotes by Christopher Reeve
#51. What makes Superman a hero is not that he has power, but that he has the wisdom and the maturity to use the power wisely. From an acting point of view, that's how I approached the part. #Quote by Christopher Reeve
Maturity quotes by Michael Crichton
#52. Nobody smart knows what they want to do until they get into their twenties or thirties. #Quote by Michael Crichton
Maturity quotes by Lewis Mumford
#53. Do you want to know what I most regret about my youth? That I didn't dream more boldly and demand of myself more impossible things; for all one does in maturity is to carve in granite or porphyry the soap bubble one blew in youth! Oh to have dreamed harder! #Quote by Lewis Mumford
Maturity quotes by Albert A. Bartlett
#54. We must realize that growth is but an adolescent phase of life which stops when physical maturity is reached. If growth continues in the period of maturity it is called obesity or cancer. Prescribing growth as the cure for the energy crisis has all the logic of prescribing increasing quantities of food as a remedy for obesity. #Quote by Albert A. Bartlett
Maturity quotes by Nicky Gumbel
#55. Your age doesn't define your maturity; your grades don't define your ability; and what people say about you doesn't define who you are. #Quote by Nicky Gumbel
Maturity quotes by Harold Holzer
#56. Robert T. Lincoln, the president's eldest son, who won fame as the "Prince of Rails" during the secession winter, was the only one of his children to live to maturity. He became U.S. secretary of war, minister to Great Britain, and president of the Pullman Company following brief service on General Grant's staff at the end of the Civil War. Though frequently mentioned as a Republican candidate for president, Robert shunned electoral politics. He later brought his mother to trial in a successful effort to have her committed for insanity. Robert died an extremely wealthy man at age eighty-four in 1926. #Quote by Harold Holzer
Maturity quotes by J.R. Moehringer
#57. To be a man, a boy must see a man. #Quote by J.R. Moehringer
Maturity quotes by Maya Angelou
#58. I am convinced that most people do not grow up ... We marry and dare to have children and call that growing up. I think what we do is mostly grow old. We carry accumulation of years in our bodies, and on our faces, but generally our real selves, the children inside, are innocent and shy as magnolias. #Quote by Maya Angelou
Maturity quotes by Ernest Hemingway,
#59. Until you're grown-up they send you to reform school. After you're grown-up they send you to the penitentiary. #Quote by Ernest Hemingway,
Maturity quotes by Marcus Aurelius
#60. Do not fear death, but welcome it, since it too comes from nature. For just as we are young and grow old, and flourish and reach maturity, have teeth and a beard and grey hairs, conceive, become pregnant, and bring forth new life, and all the other natural processes that follow the seasons of our existence, so also do we have death. A thoughtful person will never take death lightly, impatiently, or scornfully, but will wait for it as one of life's natural processes. #Quote by Marcus Aurelius
Maturity quotes by Stephen R. Covey
#61. Independent people who do not have the maturity to think and actinterdependently may be good individual producers, but they won't be good leaders or team players #Quote by Stephen R. Covey
Maturity quotes by Edward Abbey
#62. Grown men do not need leaders. #Quote by Edward Abbey
Maturity quotes by Washington Irving
#63. Critics are a kind of freebooters in the republic of letters
who, like deer, goats and divers other graminivorous animals, gain subsistence by gorging upon buds and leaves of the young shrubs of the forest, thereby robbing them of their verdure, and retarding their progress to maturity. #Quote by Washington Irving
Maturity quotes by Donald S. Whitney
#64. And in my own pastoral and personal Christian experience, I can say that I've never known a man or woman who came to spiritual maturity except through discipline. Godliness comes through discipline. #Quote by Donald S. Whitney
Maturity quotes by Leanne Payne
#65. If broken lives and souls are to be healed, it must begin with teaching the practice of the presence ... To abide in the presence of the Lord is to begin to hear Him. To follow through on that hearing is to find healing, self-acceptance, and growth into psychological and spiritual balance and maturity. #Quote by Leanne Payne
Maturity quotes by Michael Spencer
#66. Jesus-shaped spirituality hears Jesus say "believe and repent," but the call that resonates most closely in the heart of a disciple is "follow me." The command to follow requires that we take a daily journey in the company of other students. It demands that we be lifelong learners and that we commit to constant growth in spiritual maturity. Discipleship is a call to me, but it is a journey of "we. #Quote by Michael Spencer
Maturity quotes by Edgar Cayce
#67. How develop the psychic forces? So live in body, in mind, that self may be a channel through which the Creative Forces may run. How is the current of life or of modern science used in the commercial world? By preparing a channel through which same may run into, or through, that necessary for the use in the material things. So with the body mentally, physically, spiritually, so make the body, the mind, the spiritual influences, a channel-and the natural consequence will be the manifestations.
How best, then, to develop those latent forces in one now, those who have reached the years of maturity or responsibility in self? Let that mind be in you as was in Him who thought it not robbery to make Himself equal with God, yet took on Himself the burden of all, that through His physical suffering, His privation in body, in mind, there might come the blessings to others. Not self, but others. He, or she, that may lose self, then, for others, may develop those faculties that will give the greater expression of psychic forces in their experience. #Quote by Edgar Cayce
Maturity quotes by Pedro Almodovar
#68. I think it's a change that I did not intend at the time but it is clear that, from The Flower of My Secret on, there is a change in my films. A lot of the journalists have very generously attributed this to my growing maturity. #Quote by Pedro Almodovar
Maturity quotes by Stewart Stafford
#69. The stresses and strains of life mould us into our mature selves. The key to life is to accept the wisdom of our later years while maintaining our youthful enthusiasm and curiosity for the world. #Quote by Stewart Stafford
Maturity quotes by Henna Sohail
#70. Maturity is when you let your inner child speak and your adult self listen without any bondages #Quote by Henna Sohail
Maturity quotes by Innocent Mwatsikesimbe
#71. It is not the time that a person has lived that determines maturity, but what he does during that time. #Quote by Innocent Mwatsikesimbe
Maturity quotes by Ryu Murakami
#72. This was a factory, a sorting house. We were no different from dogs and pigs and cows: all of us were allowed to play when we were small, but then, just before reaching maturity, we were sorted and classified. Being a high school student was the first step toward becoming a domestic animal. #Quote by Ryu Murakami
Maturity quotes by Dara Torres
#73. I'd proven to the world that maturity, experience, dedication, and ingenuity can make up for a little senescence. Muscle tightening is not the only thing that happens to our bodies over time. We gain knowledge, focus, and understanding, and those things can help us win. #Quote by Dara Torres
Maturity quotes by Jean M. Twenge
#74. No matter what the cause, the result is the same: iGen teens are less likely to experience the freedom of being out of the house without their parents--those first tantalizing tastes of the independence of being an adult, those times when teens make their own decisions, good or bad. #Quote by Jean M. Twenge
Maturity quotes by Randy Alcorn
#75. It's my responsibility to cultivate the man in my son. I can't be passive about that. #Quote by Randy Alcorn
Maturity quotes by Carl Sagan
#76. Then science came along and taught us that we are not the measure of all things, that there are wonders unimagined, that the Universe is not obliged to conform to what we consider comfortable or plausible. We have learned something about the idiosyncratic nature of our common sense. Science has carried human self-consciousness to a higher level. This is surely a rite of passage, a step towards maturity. #Quote by Carl Sagan
Maturity quotes by Stephen King
#77. It's as if God gave you something-all those stories- and said, "Here you are. Try not to lose it." But children lose everything unless somebody is there to help them, and if your parents are too stupid to do it, maybe i ought to. #Quote by Stephen King
Maturity quotes by Diana Peterfreund
#78. There was that word again.Mature. Was this what maturity was? Giving up on the things we wanted because we knew we'd never get them? #Quote by Diana Peterfreund
Maturity quotes by Dave Ramsey
#79. One definition of maturity is learning to delay pleasure. #Quote by Dave Ramsey
Maturity quotes by Marianne Williamson
#80. Maturity includes the recognition that no one is going to see anything in us that we don't see in ourselves. Stop waiting for a producer. Produce yourself. #Quote by Marianne Williamson
Maturity quotes by Aristotle.
#81. How can a man who, for a significant phase of his formation, shared his master's opposition to rhetoric have in maturity composed a masterpiece of the formal study of rhetoric? This #Quote by Aristotle.
Maturity quotes by Oliver Gaspirtz
#82. Imagine a wall that's green on one side and red on the other. You stand on one side and only see green. I stand on the other side and only see red. We'll both be right about the color we see, even though we disagree on what color the wall is. Being able to realize that the other person has a valid point, even if you disagree with it, that's maturity. #Quote by Oliver Gaspirtz
Maturity quotes by Wm. Paul Young
#83. This, Tony, is a living land, not a construction site. This is
real and breathing, not a fabrication that can be bullied into
being. When you choose technique over relationship and
process, when you try and shortcut the speed of growing
awareness and force understanding and maturity before its time,
this - he pointed down and over the length #Quote by Wm. Paul Young
Maturity quotes by Pat Conroy
#84. The narrator analyzes that the maturing, passing away boy within him, had issued me a challenge as he passed the baton to the man in me: He had challenged me to have the courage to become a gentle, harmless man. #Quote by Pat Conroy
Maturity quotes by Elizabeth Gilbert
#85. Maturity brings - among other things - the ability to sustain and survive enormous contradictions and disappointments. #Quote by Elizabeth Gilbert
Maturity quotes by Ikechukwu Joseph
#86. Silence in the face of offence or provocation is maturity #Quote by Ikechukwu Joseph
Maturity quotes by Ernest Kurtz
#87. To acknowledge, to accept, and to forgive one's parents - both what they gave and what they did not give, both one's dependence upon them and one's independence of them - is the ultimate hallmark of maturity: a perception as valid for institutions as for individuals. #Quote by Ernest Kurtz
Maturity quotes by C. G. Jung
#88. The achievement of psychological maturity is an individual task-and so is increasingly difficult today when man's individuality is threatened by widespread conformity. #Quote by C. G. Jung
Maturity quotes by M. Esther Harding
#89. If any human being is to reach full maturity both the masculine and feminine sides of the personality must be brought up into consciousness. #Quote by M. Esther Harding
Maturity quotes by Chanda Hahn
#90. I'm sorry if I have the emotional stability of a teeter-totter right now, but that's better than you, who has the emotional maturity of a rock. #Quote by Chanda Hahn
Maturity quotes by Milind Tembhurne
#91. Maturity is that you should know when and where to be immature #Quote by Milind Tembhurne
Maturity quotes by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
#92. It is a sign of intellectual maturity to always crawl to conclusions. #Quote by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
Maturity quotes by Vernon Howard
#93. Aloneness is a wise teacher. Kierkegaard remarked that one sign of spiritual maturity was the ability to be comfortable when alone. #Quote by Vernon Howard
Maturity quotes by John Le Carre
#94. I don't know whether it's age or maturity, but I certainly find myself committed more and more to the looser forms of Western democracy at any price. #Quote by John Le Carre
Maturity quotes by Horst Kornberger
#95. It takes courage and maturity to realise your own story. #Quote by Horst Kornberger
Maturity quotes by Three Initiates
#96. Universes are created; reach their extreme low point of materiality; and then begin their upward swing. Suns spring into being, and then their height of power being reached, the process of retrogression begins, and after aeons they become dead masses of matter, awaiting another impulse which starts again their inner energies into activity and a new solar life cycle is begun. And thus it is with all the worlds; they are born, grow and die; only to be reborn. And thus it is with all the things of shape and form; they swing from action to reaction; from birth to death; from activity to inactivity and then back again. Thus it is with all living things; they are born, grow, and die - and then are reborn. So it is with all great movements, philosophies, creeds, fashions, governments, nations, and all else - birth, growth, maturity, decadence, death - and then new-birth. The swing of the pendulum is ever in evidence. #Quote by Three Initiates
Maturity quotes by Laura Lippman
#97. I would prefer," Pat said, his voice a little stiff, as if he expected resistance, "that I be the cosigner on the loan, if you go through with this. I know I'm not a famous billionaire, but I think my credit's just as good."
No, you're wrong about that," Tess said, shaking her head.
What?"
As far as I'm concerned, it's better. I'd much rather do business with you."
They shook on it. It was a deal, after all, not a time for hugging.
Favors, Arnie Vasso had once said. Your father knows all about favors. He had meant it as an insult, a sly reference to the corners the Monaghans and Weinsteins cut here and there. Now Tess saw it for the simple truth it was: Her father understood favors. How to do them, how to accept them, how to walk away when the price was too steep. It was a lesson she wouldn't mind learning someday.
Maybe this was the place to start. #Quote by Laura Lippman
Maturity quotes by Karen Handel
#98. Nathan Deal brings the experience, maturity and track record to ensure that Georgia continues to be a great place to live, work and raise a family. That's why he has my support for a second term as governor of this great state. #Quote by Karen Handel
Maturity quotes by Lytton Strachey
#99. When Louis XIV assumed the reins of government France suddenly and wonderfully came to her maturity; it was as if the whole nation had burst into splendid flower. #Quote by Lytton Strachey
Maturity quotes by Sarah Bessey
#100. We first take our everyday, ordinary life - our sleeping, eating, going-to-work life - and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for us is the best thing we can do for him. When we fix our attention on God, we'll be changed from the inside out. We'll readily recognize what he wants from us and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around us, always dragging us down to its level of immaturity, God brings out the best in us, develops well-formed maturity."3 #Quote by Sarah Bessey
Maturity quotes by Avijeet Das
#101. Just being a writer allows one the maturity to have random conversations with random strangers! #Quote by Avijeet Das
Maturity quotes by Criss Jami
#102. There is a greater Christian faith than one which settles for the temporal happiness, and that is the augmentation of faith. The more faithful you become, the harder the obstacles get; but the harder the obstacles get, the tougher your spine grows; and the tougher your spine grows, the less dependent you are on man's approval. I came to know this about Christianity when valuing faith before comfort. #Quote by Criss Jami
Maturity quotes by Antoine De Saint Exupery
#103. I have lived a great deal among grown-ups. I have seen them intimately, close at hand. And that hasn't much improved my opinion of them. #Quote by Antoine De Saint Exupery
Maturity quotes by Elisabeth Elliot
#104. Maturity starts with the willingness to give oneself. #Quote by Elisabeth Elliot
Maturity quotes by Criss Jami
#105. Good friends will allow you to be as innocent and free as a child when in private, and as wise and mature as an adult when in public. #Quote by Criss Jami
Maturity quotes by Richard Rohr
#106. Life is all about practicing for heaven." p 101. #Quote by Richard Rohr
Maturity quotes by Anne Bishop
#107. There are some questions that shouldn't be asked until a person is mature enough to appreciate the answers. #Quote by Anne Bishop
Maturity quotes by Kendricks Fields
#109. You are the TEACHER. Some people are so stuck on what you did in the past, that they don't realize that you forgave yourself, matured, and graduated from what happened.

Yet here they are stuck on that memory..wondering how you were able to move on. Time waits for no one and life keeps going.

When haters try to remind you of your past, starve their attention with silence..Just realize that you don't have time to supervise adults. You got things to do and individuals to mentor.

What was designed to crush you just strengthened your walk, put confidence in your talk, and encouraged you to be content with You.

Their presence or opinion is only entertainment in the bleachers, tolerated decorations on the wall, and the uncelebrated clown at your events.

Remember you are the teacher and they are the student...take charge of your classroom!! #Quote by Kendricks Fields
Maturity quotes by Bill Plotkin
#110. Soul has been demoted to a new-age spiritual fantasy or a missionary's booty, and nature has been treated , at best, as a postcard or a vacation backdrop or, more commonly, as a hardware store or refuse heap. Too many of us lack intimacy with the natural world and with our souls, and consequently we are doing untold damage to both. #Quote by Bill Plotkin
Maturity quotes by Douglas Gillette
#111. After years of research, depth psychologists and others argue that each sex carries both the psychological and physical traits of the other. No man is purely masculine, just as there is no purely feminine woman. Jungian psychologists call the feminine characteristics of the male psyche the Anima; the female psyche's masculine characteristics they the Animus.
Both the Animus and Anima develop in complex fashion as the personality grows to maturity. Neither men nor women can reach psychological maturity without integrating their respective contrasexual other. A man's female elements enhance his manhood, just as a woman's male aspects enhance her womanhood. #Quote by Douglas Gillette
Maturity quotes by Baba Gurinder Singh Ji
#112. Baba Ji says "Spiritual Maturity is when you VALUE your focus on God above all else and would never lose it for a second no matter how much effort you had to make or pain, sacrifice and hardship you had to endure to keep it #Quote by Baba Gurinder Singh Ji
Maturity quotes by Ann Landers
#114. Maturity is the ability to make a decision and stand by it. Immature people spend their lives exploring endless possibilities and then doing nothing. Action requires courage. Without courage, little is accomplished. #Quote by Ann Landers
Maturity quotes by Steve Maraboli
#115. I have found that as your wisdom and maturity develop, the number of other people you blame for your own circumstances shrinks. #Quote by Steve Maraboli
Maturity quotes by Shannon L. Alder
#116. Most people believe the journey they begin with Christ goes forward, but that is not how he works. A spiritual life is not cutting ties with people, in order to walk clean in the future. The journey home isn't running away from obstacles. It is learning to stand where you are now and handle people, assert yourself, set boundaries and never feel your happiness is dependent on another person's approval of your choices, beliefs or spiritual needs. #Quote by Shannon L. Alder
Maturity quotes by Virginia Graham
#117. Maturity gives us jealous eyes. We look with jealousy on the younger woman because she doesn't know as much now as we do, and, oh, what we could do with our wisdom and her face. #Quote by Virginia Graham
Maturity quotes by L.M. Montgomery
#118. Mrs. Allan's face was not the face of the girlbride whom the minister had brought to Avonlea five years before. It had lost some of its bloom and youthful curves, and there were fine, patient lines about eyes and mouth. A tiny grave in that very cemetery accounted for some of them; and some new ones had come during the recent illness, now happily over, of her little son. But Mrs. Allan's dimples were as sweet and sudden as ever, her eyes as clear and bright and true; and what her face lacked of girlish beauty was now more than atoned for in added tenderness and strength. #Quote by L.M. Montgomery
Maturity quotes by Leo Baeck
#119. The mark of a mature man is the ability to give love and receive it joyously and without guilt. #Quote by Leo Baeck
Maturity quotes by Harriet Lerner
#120. People's sense of self worth is pivotal to their ability to look clearly at the hurt they've caused. The more solid one's sense of self regard, the more likely that that person can feel empathy and compassion for the hurt party, and apologize from an authentic center. #Quote by Harriet Lerner
Maturity quotes by J.I. Packer
#121. It is extraordinary how little the New Testament says about God's interest in our success, by comparison with the enormous amount that it says about God's interest in our holiness, our maturity in Christ, and our growth into the fullness of His image. #Quote by J.I. Packer
Maturity quotes by Malcolm Gladwell
#122. We do ability grouping early on in childhood...if we look at young kids, in kindergarten and first grade, the teachers are confusing maturity with ability. #Quote by Malcolm Gladwell
Maturity quotes by Mary Wollstonecraft
#123. The conduct and manners of women, in fact, evidently prove that their minds are not in a healthy state; for, like the flowers which are planted in too rich a soil, strenght state; usefulness are sacrificed to beauty; and the flaunting leaves, after having pleased a fastidious eye, fade, disregarded on the stalk, long before the season when they ought to have arrived at maturity. #Quote by Mary Wollstonecraft
Maturity quotes by Sebastian Faulks
#124. she had discovered that ageing and what they called "maturity" were myths, that all the years did was disqualify you from various pleasures, one by one. #Quote by Sebastian Faulks
Maturity quotes by Tuula Kallioniemi
#125. My message for all my readers is: Don't believe in those who claim that youth is a passing disease you just have to get rid of. Don't believe, that maturity is a goal and an asset to go after. Nothing will ever be ready, that is what makes life interesting. Read! #Quote by Tuula Kallioniemi
Maturity quotes by Pearl Zhu
#126. Decision maturity is to ensure the right decisions have been made by the right people at the right time to solve the right problems. #Quote by Pearl Zhu
Maturity quotes by Leland Ryken
#127. Ease and luxury, such as our affluence brings us today, do not make for maturity; hardship and struggle do, #Quote by Leland Ryken
Maturity quotes by Harriet Lerner
#128. But one of the hallmarks of emotional maturity is to recognize the validity of multiple realities and to understand that people think, feel, and react differently. Often we behave as if "closeness" means "sameness. #Quote by Harriet Lerner
Maturity quotes by Adam LiVecchi
#129. Faith all grown up is trust. #Quote by Adam LiVecchi
Maturity quotes by George Saunders
#130. The great American denial riff is that you can do whatever you like and you always triumph at the end. The world is saying no, you can do what you like, but there are consequences. And maturity is to be able to turn to the consequences and accept them. #Quote by George Saunders
Maturity quotes by Sol Luckman
#131. So it was a crossroads summer, when the universe seemed to stand perilously still like an egg wobbling on a precipice, a regular rite of passage summer that saw us traverse the hazardous divide between the illusions of boyhood and the far more pernicious deceptions of maturity, et cetera. #Quote by Sol Luckman
Maturity quotes by Leo Tolstoy
#132. Formerly (it had begun almost from childhood and kept growing till full maturity), whenever he had tried to do something that would be good for everyone, for mankind, for Russia, for the district, for the whole village, he had noticed that thinking about it was pleasant, but the doing itself was always awkward, there was no full assurance that the thing was absolutely necessary, and the doing itself, which at the start had seemed so big, kept diminishing and diminishing, dwindling to nothing; while now, after his marriage, when he began to limit himself more and more to living for himself, though he no longer experienced any joy at the thought of what he was doing, he felt certain that his work was necessary, saw that it turned out much better than before and that it was expanding more and more. #Quote by Leo Tolstoy
Maturity quotes by Gina Marinello-Sweeney
#133. Maturity is so often considered to be synonymous with 'adult.' But I truly feel that maturity may be defined by the ability to be both an adult and a child. #Quote by Gina Marinello-Sweeney
Maturity quotes by Erich Fromm
#134. The child starts out by being attached to his mother as "the ground of all being." He feels helpless and needs the all-enveloping love of mother. He then turns to father as the new center of his affections, father being a guiding principle for thought and action; in this stage he is motivated by the need to acquire father's praise, and to avoid his displeasure. In the stage of full maturity he has freed himself from the person of mother and of father as protecting and commanding powers; he has established the motherly and fatherly principles in himself. He has become his own father and mother; he is father and mother.
In the history of the human race we see - and can anticipate - the same development: from the beginning of the love for God as the helpless attachment to a mother Goddess, through the obedient attachment to a fatherly God, to a mature stage where God ceases to be an outside power, where man has incorporated the principles of love and justice into himself, where he has become one with God, and eventually, to a point where he speaks of God only in a poetic, symbolic sense. #Quote by Erich Fromm
Maturity quotes by Bill Kauth
#135. A few people of integrity can go a long way. #Quote by Bill Kauth
Maturity quotes by Jim Rohn
#136. Maturity is the ability to reap without apology and not complain when things don't go well. #Quote by Jim Rohn
Maturity quotes by Sarah Hall
#137. Short stories are often strong meat. Reading them, even listening to them, can be challenging, by which I do not mean hard work, simply that a certain amount of nerve and maturity is required. #Quote by Sarah Hall
Maturity quotes by Dave Ramsey
#138. Being willing to delay pleasure for a greater result is a sign of maturity. #Quote by Dave Ramsey
Maturity quotes by Howell Raines
#139. Anything is possible in the life of a man if he lives long enough. Even maturity. #Quote by Howell Raines

Maturity quotes by Brian Spellman
#141. I'm all groan up in America. #Quote by Brian Spellman
Maturity quotes by Pope John Paul II
#142. The vow of celibacy is a matter of keeping one's word to Christ and the Church. a duty and a proof of the priest's inner maturity; it is the expression of his personal dignity. #Quote by Pope John Paul II
Maturity quotes by Marcus Aurelius
#143. And so he will see even the real gaping jaws of wild beasts with no less pleasure than those which painters and sculptors show by imitation; and in an old woman and an old man he will be able to see a certain maturity and comeliness; and the attractive loveliness of young persons he will be able to look on with chaste eyes; and many such things will present themselves, not pleasing to every man, but to him only who has become truly familiar with nature and her works. #Quote by Marcus Aurelius
Maturity quotes by Kenneth Cain
#144. I'm not ready to let the youthful part of myself go yet. If maturity means becoming a cynic, if you have to kill the part of yourself that is naive and romantic and idealistic - the part of you that you treasure most - to claim maturity, is it not better to die young but with your humanity intact? #Quote by Kenneth Cain
Maturity quotes by Matthieu Ricard
#145. Happiness is the result of inner maturity. It depends on us alone, and requires patient work, carried out from day to day. Happiness must be built, and this requires time and effort. In the long term, happiness and unhappiness are therefore a way of being, or a life skill. #Quote by Matthieu Ricard
Maturity quotes by Prince
#146. No member of the animal kingdom nurses past maturity, no member of the animal kingdom ever did a thing to me. Its why I don't eat red meat or white fish, don't give me no blue cheese. Were all members of the animal kingdom, leave your brothers and sisters in the sea. #Quote by Prince
Maturity quotes by Louise Erdrich
#147. Life seems to flood by, taking our loves quickly in its flow. In the growth of children, in the aging of beloved parents, time's chart is magnified, shown in its particularity, focused, so that with each celebration of maturity there is also a pang of loss. This is our human problem, one common to parents, sons and daughters, too - how to let go while holding tight, how to simultaneously cherish the closeness and intricacy of the bond while at the same time letting out the raveling string, the red yarn that ties our hearts. #Quote by Louise Erdrich
Maturity quotes by Ursula K. Le Guin
#148. The notion that fantasy is only for the immature rises from an obstinate misunderstanding of both maturity and the imagination. #Quote by Ursula K. Le Guin
Maturity quotes by Neel Burton
#149. Solitude, the joy of being alone, stems from, as well as promotes, a state of maturity and inner richness. #Quote by Neel Burton
Maturity quotes by Kim Stanley Robinson
#150. Childhood isn't just those years. It's also the opinions you form about them afterward. That's why our childhoods are so long. #Quote by Kim Stanley Robinson
Maturity quotes by Jim George
#151. Spiritual maturity keeps you from being easily swayed in your beliefs #Quote by Jim George
Maturity quotes by Tony Reinke
#152. Our humbling experience of sin is a mark of maturity. To be humbled by sin is to be marked by grace. Christian holiness is not the eradication of the sin nature, at least not on this side of eternity. #Quote by Tony Reinke
Maturity quotes by Hendrik Willem Van Loon
#153. On the other hand, when you grow up you will discover that some of the people in this world never passed beyond the stage of the cave-man. #Quote by Hendrik Willem Van Loon
Maturity quotes by Alan Bradley
#154. It has been my experience that facetiousness in the mouth of someone old enough to know better is often no more than camouflage for something far, far worse. #Quote by Alan Bradley
Maturity quotes by Clayton M Christensen
#155. We could cite many cases of companies' similar attempts to create new-growth platforms after the core business had matured. They follow an all-too-similar pattern. When the core business approaches maturity and investors demand new growth, executives develop seemingly sensible strategies to generate it. Although they invest aggressively, their plans fail to create the needed growth fast enough; investors hammer the stock; management is sacked; and Wall Street rewards the new executive team for simply restoring the status quo ante: a profitable but low-growth core business.4 #Quote by Clayton M Christensen
Maturity quotes by Emil Dorian
#156. I stopped in front of a florist's window. Behind me, the screeching and throbbing boulevard vanished. Gone, too, were the voices of newspaper vendors selling their daily poisoned flowers. Facing me, behind the glass curtain, a fairyland. Shining, plump carnations, with the pink voluptuousness of women about to reach maturity, poised for the first step of a sprightly dance; shamelessly lascivious gladioli; virginal branches of white lilac; roses lost in pure meditation, undecided between the metaphysical white and the unreal yellow of a sky after the rain. #Quote by Emil Dorian
Maturity quotes by Richard Walter
#157. Information can be harmful when you're not ready for it. ['The Murder Room: The Heirs of Sherlock Holmes'] #Quote by Richard Walter
Maturity quotes by Marianne Williamson
#158. When you realize that the real breakthroughs come from levels of higher consciousness, then you also realize that the achievement of maturity and wisdom is the most powerful generator of new beginnings possible. #Quote by Marianne Williamson
Maturity quotes by Beth Moore
#159. Anyone with the maturity to surrender entirely to God is mature enough for God to use. #Quote by Beth Moore
Maturity quotes by Emmanuelle Soni-Dessaigne
#160. Emotions have to go to maturity. Only a mature emotion bears fruits. #Quote by Emmanuelle Soni-Dessaigne
Maturity quotes by Eleanor Roosevelt
#161. I think everyone, at some time in his life, has this happen to him, comes face to face with the bitter realization that he has failed in something that means a tremendous amount and probably in a relation that is close to him. Life teaches you that you cannot attain real maturity until you are ready to accept this harsh knowledge, this limitation in yourself, and make the difficult adjustment. Either you must learn to allow someone else to meet the need, without bitterness or envy, and accept it; or somehow you must make yourself learn to meet it. If you refuse to accept the limitation in yourself, you will be unable to grow beyond this point. #Quote by Eleanor Roosevelt
Maturity quotes by Milan Kundera
#162. All he knew about old age was that it a time when a person had passed his maturity; when fate had ended; when there was no longer any need to fear that terrible mystery called the future; when every love than came along was certain and final. #Quote by Milan Kundera
Maturity quotes by Howard Gardner
#163. Part of the maturity of the sciences is an appreciation of which questions are best left to other disciplinary approaches. #Quote by Howard Gardner
Maturity quotes by Ted Chiang
#164. Maturity means seeing the differences, but realizing they don't matter. There's no technological shortcut. Adesh #Quote by Ted Chiang
Maturity quotes by Linda Alfiori
#165. SOULMATES MAY BE OPPOSITES, BUT THEY HAVE SIMILAR LEVELS OF: SPIRITUALITY, CORE VALUES, MATURITY AND COMPLEMENTARY NEEDS #Quote by Linda Alfiori
Maturity quotes by Midge Decter
#166. We allowed you a charade of trivial freedoms in order to avoid making those impositions on you that are in the end both the training ground and proving ground for true independence. We pronounced you strong when you were still weak in order to avoid taking part in the long, slow, slogging effort that is the only route to genuine maturity of mind and feeling. Thus, it was no small anomaly of your growing up that while you were the most indulged generation, you were also in many ways the most abandoned to your own meager devices by those into whose safe-keeping you had been given. #Quote by Midge Decter
Maturity quotes by Shykia Bell
#167. The physical stage of bonding is at its most powerful when all other forms of bonding have been achieved. If this has been done, the final petals of the flower have reached full maturity and unfold, leaving no restriction for pleasure, physical or otherwise. Having learned your partner and when to push, pull away or work together in fluid unison; having learned what enthuses and delights their senses, you are prepared to carry all of this knowledge into the sweet cadence of your unity. #Quote by Shykia Bell
Maturity quotes by Anais Nin
#168. Compassion for our parents is the true sign of maturity. #Quote by Anais Nin
Maturity quotes by Maximus The Confessor
#169. Before His visible advent in the flesh the Logos of God dwelt among the patriarchs and prophets in a spiritual manner, prefiguring the mysteries of His advent. After His incarnation He is present in a similar way not only to those who are still beginners, nourishing them spiritually and leading them toward the maturity of divine perfection, but also to the perfect, secretly pre-delineating in them the features of His future advent as if in an ikon. #Quote by Maximus The Confessor
Maturity quotes by Kathryn Smith
#170. Young Mr. Maxwell would make a very good match."
Camilla's lovely face hardened just a little at the mention of Maxwell. Grey could have kissed her. "He was quick to abandon her the last time he courted my daughter, so I will have to reserve judgment until he's proven himself a changed man, no matter how well I wish to think of him."
"Very wise," Grey agreed, ignoring the look his brother slanted toward him.
"A few years can do wonders for a man's maturity," Archer remarked.
Grey shrugged. "Or not. Some men simply become overgrown boys and never face the consequences of their actions."
Archer smiled. "And some blame society and hide like scared mice for the rest of their lives."
Were they alone Grey might have hit him. But they weren't alone, and instead of giving into his anger, he was left with having to face how much hearing his brother say such a thing hurt.
Not only hurt, it made him deuced uncomfortable. #Quote by Kathryn Smith
Maturity quotes by Marguerite Young
#171. The bus-driver was whistling, perhaps in anticipation of his wife, who would be a woman with ample breasts, those of a realized maturity. It would be impossible that he did not have, from my point of view, a wife and children, indeed, a happiness such as I could not imagine to be real, even like some legend out of the golden ages. He had spoken numerous times during our journey of his old woman waiting, and he was going home. #Quote by Marguerite Young
Maturity quotes by J.R. Ward
#172. Just as children have growing pains as their bodies work to attain maturity, as people's souls deepen and gain resonance it's the same thing. To be challenged, to stretch, to get stronger comes only with the hard stuff - loss, heartache, disappointment. #Quote by J.R. Ward
Maturity quotes by David Kay
#173. I think that shows a level of maturity and understanding that I think bodes well for getting to the bottom of this. But it is really up to you and your staff, on behalf of the American people, to take on that challenge. #Quote by David Kay
Maturity quotes by Will Davis Jr.
#174. As long as a believer is worrying about whether or not they are truly saved, they will never grow up in spiritual maturity. It basically guarantees that a Christian will remain stuck in spiritual infancy. And worse, it paints a picture of God that is not only untrue but also unbiblical. It cheapens the gift of salvation – the gift of grace – and make God look like a finicky human. #Quote by Will Davis Jr.
Maturity quotes by Matthew Ashimolowo
#175. The deep of your maturity determines the height of your marriage. #Quote by Matthew Ashimolowo
Maturity quotes by Leonard Sax
#176. Celebration of the new over the old easily translates into a celebration of young over the old, of young people over old people. The cult of youth, the celebration of youth for youth's sake s more pervasive in the United States than any other culture I have visited . . . When the culture values youth over maturity, the authority of parents is undermined. #Quote by Leonard Sax
Maturity quotes by Claire Wong
#177. I have always loved fairy tales, even now at the age when I am supposed to be too grown up and cynical for them. #Quote by Claire Wong
Maturity quotes by Barbara Mertz
#178. That's maturity-when you realize that you've finally arrived at a state of ignorance as profound as your parents. #Quote by Barbara Mertz
Maturity quotes by C. JoyBell C.
#179. I have lived my life backwards as compared to my peers. Everyone did incredibly stupid things as teenagers and pre-teens. I didn't. I was the one telling everybody that they were incredibly stupid. Now that they are all past that stage and we are all much older - I am the one doing incredibly stupid things. I have figured that I've earned that right, by now! You have to earn the right to be stupid. #Quote by C. JoyBell C.
Maturity quotes by Ezra Taft Benson
#180. The stage, the screen, the novel, casual conversation, the street discussion, and too often the fireside intimacies are punctuated with blasphemy, to which may be added, as of the same nature, coarse, ribald jokes, foul stories, and low small talk. Some would have us believe that profanity is a sign of masculinity and emotion maturity. #Quote by Ezra Taft Benson
Maturity quotes by Eraldo Banovac
#181. There are more ways to choose a profession. One can choose it by
intention, by strong parental influence or even by accident. #Quote by Eraldo Banovac
Maturity quotes by Elle Macpherson
#182. I'm almost 50, so I obviously don't have the same body that I had when I was 20. But I also don't have the same mindset either, when I was wracked with self-consciousness and insecurity. Now I really appreciate my maturity as a woman, my depth of spirit and soul and my understanding of who I am and what's important to me. #Quote by Elle Macpherson
Maturity quotes by H.G.Wells
#183. There's truths you have to grow into. #Quote by H.G.Wells
Maturity quotes by Lewis Buzbee
#184. Maturity and experience shouldn't stop one from craving silly things like sliding down bannisters. #Quote by Lewis Buzbee
Maturity quotes by Carl Sagan
#185. We achieve some measure of adulthood when we recognize our parents as they really were, without sentimentalizing or mythologizing, but also without blaming them unfairly for our imperfections. Maturity entails a readiness, painful and wrenching though it may be, to look squarely into the long dark places, into the fearsome shadows. In this act of ancestral remembrance and acceptance may be found a light by which to see our children safely home. #Quote by Carl Sagan
Maturity quotes by Paul L. Errington
#186. Man needs to do some growing up. This need is manifested, among other ways, by the emotional unreason he tends to show toward the behavior of wild creatures. The immoderations and inconsistencies in his attitude toward wolves or other predatory or competing species are particularly revealing a lack of maturity. #Quote by Paul L. Errington
Maturity quotes by Lindsey Vonn
#187. In the end, it's a mental maturity to let your best come out. #Quote by Lindsey Vonn
Maturity quotes by Craig D. Lounsbrough
#188. The question is not how many years I've lived. The question is how I lived those many years. #Quote by Craig D. Lounsbrough
Maturity quotes by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
#189. We must do business in great waters; we must be really on the deck in a storm, if we would see the works of the Lord and His wonders in the deep. We must have stood side by side with King David; we must have gone down into the pit to slay the lion or have lifted up the spear against the eight hundred, if we would know the saving strength of God's right hand. Conflicts bring experience, and experience brings that growth in grace which is not to be attained by any other means. #Quote by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
Maturity quotes by Deborah Kaple
#190. The maturity of every society is reflected in the attitude toward women, upon whom the continuation of mankind depends. Civilization #Quote by Deborah Kaple
Maturity quotes by Wayne Gerard Trotman
#191. Finding love is not that difficult. The real question is how long will it last? One night? Six months? A decade or a lifetime? #Quote by Wayne Gerard Trotman
Maturity quotes by John Macnaughton
#192. Maturity begins to grow when you can sense your concern for others outweighing your concern for yourself. #Quote by John Macnaughton
Maturity quotes by B.C. Forbes
#193. For my part, I rather distrust men or concerns that rise up with the speed of rockets. Sudden rises are sometimes followed by equally sudden falls. I have most faith in the individual or enterprise that advances step by step. A mushroom can spring up in a day; an oak takes 50 years or more to reach maturity. Mushrooms don't last; oaks do. The real cause for an enormous number of business failures is premature over-expansion, attempting to gallop before learning to creep. Sudden successes often invite sudden reverses. #Quote by B.C. Forbes
Maturity quotes by Efrat Cybulkiewicz
#194. Since very few things in life are worth getting into silly arguments over, I virtually don't respond at all when someone tries to persuade me otherwise. I simply take the tangent by making people smarter--it is my way to simply "bow and take my leave" instead of stooping to argue, with someone of lower intellect, lesser emotional maturity or simply lower class. It is a reasonable solution, their demeanour changes instantly. #Quote by Efrat Cybulkiewicz
Maturity quotes by Joseph B. Wirthlin
#195. Most of us don't mind doing what we ought to do when it doesn't interfere with what we want to do, but it takes discipline and maturity to do what we ought to do whether we want to or not. #Quote by Joseph B. Wirthlin
Maturity quotes by Gabor Mate
#196. Many adults have not attained maturity - have not mastered being independent, self-motivated individuals capable of tending their own emotional needs and of respecting the needs of others. Among the several reasons why maturity is less and less prevalent today, peer orientation is probably the main culprit. Immaturity and peer orientation go hand in hand. The earlier the onset of peer orientation in a child's life and the more intense the preoccupation with peers, the greater the likelihood of being destined to perpetual childishness. #Quote by Gabor Mate

Maturity quotes by Melissa Etheridge
#199. I'm exploring the maturity, the wisdom that just comes from having gone around the sun 50 times. My experience is, 'Oh, I'm never really going to get it right. I'm never going to get it done. But that's not the point here.' The point is the journey. #Quote by Melissa Etheridge
Maturity quotes by Ambrose Bierce
#200. Children who have proven themselves to be incorrigible by the age of twelve should be quickly and quietly beheaded, lest they grow to maturity, marry, and perpetuate the likeness of their being. #Quote by Ambrose Bierce
