There’s no point in being grown up if you can’t be childish sometimes.

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.
– Anaïs Nin

You may say I’m tall, you may say I’m short, you might say I’m fat, you might say I’m skinny. But whatever you say can’t ever change who I am.

Sydney J. Harris

To be mature means to face, and not evade, every fresh crisis that comes.

Sydney J. Harris
