Wednesday Vignettes: Maturity
“We do not grow absolutely, chronologically.
We grow sometimes in one dimension,
and not in another; unevenly. We grow partially.
We are relative. We are mature in one realm,
childish in another. The past, present, and future mingle
and pull us backward, forward,
or fix us in the present.
We are made up of layers, cells, constellations.”
“Don’t you understand that we need to be childish
in order to understand?
Only a child sees things with perfect clarity,
because it hasn’t developed all those filters
which prevent us from seeing things
that we don’t expect to see.”
“Youth ends when egotism does;
maturity begins when one lives for others.”
