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.

Arguably one of the greatest football coaches in history, Vince Lombardi served as head coach and general manager of the Green Bay Packers during the 1960's. He was known for his passion for discipline and execution, which led the Packers to five NFL Championships and two Super Bowl wins. His post season record was an astounding 9 and 1, his only loss coming in 1960. He later served as coach, general manager and part owner of the Washington Redskins, which had its first winning season in 14 years under his command. The National Football League's Super Bowl Trophy is named in his honor.
