Maturity

True maturity is not the result of mortal growth or development; it is not attained by the putting off of childhood and the putting on of manhood. Maturity is a state of consciousness. It is the eternal unfolding of man in God's image.

Youth looks eagerly towards human maturity in anticipation of its assets, if not of its responsibilities. But who, with increasing years, the advantage of scholarship, and the accumulation of experience, can claim that these have ensured men against methods and motives wholly immature? During the centuries tyranny and violence, passions and prejudices, have not been annulled.
