Maturity Quotes

Maturity is a bitter disappointment for which no remedy exists, unless laughter can be said to remedy anything.

Kurt Vonnegut

In no history has been a liberation movement that has fought alone and won liberation. Only when a concentrated power of the people rises in a revolution behind the liberation movement it attains fullness and maturity as people’s struggle,as a national struggle. Only in such a way is liberation possible.

Vellupillai Pirapakaran

A third peculiarity about the forest is that it exhibits a dynamic beauty. A Beethoven symphony or a poem of Shelley, a landscape by Corot or a Gothic cathedral, once it is finished becomes virtually static. But the wilderness is in constant flux. A seed germinates, and a stunted seedling battles for decades against the dense shade of the virgin forest. Then some ancient tree blows down and the long-suppressed plant suddenly enters into the full vigor of delayed youth, grows rapidly from sapling to maturity, declines into the conky senility of many centuries, dropping millions of seeds to start a new forest upon the rotting debris of its own ancestors, and eventually topples over to admit the sunlight which ripens another woodland generation.

Bob Marshall

A man's age represents a fine cargo of experiences and memories.

Antoine de Saint-ExupÈry
