Maturity is defined both as a state of mind, and a physical state. Whereas the lines are well defined for physical growth, mental maturity takes some longer to reach than others. Maturity quotes really have very little to do with the age of the speaker but more closely relate to composure and perspective. One of the best maturity quotes comes from American businessman Samuel Ullman, whose family immigrated from Europe to escape religious persecution: Maturity is the ability to think, speak and act your feelings within the bounds of dignity. Certainly, his early experience of scapegoating forced Ullman, like others, to mature at an early age.
