Maturity

1. Fully grown or developed.
2. In a desired or final condition
3. Worked out fully by the mind, considered.
4. Payable, due: a mutre bond.
   Turing:
      1. To rbing or come to full developement; rippen.
      2. To Become due.

What is the line between child and adult? Is it merely he ability to see the world clearly? Do any of us really do that?

Is it being able to remain calm during a discussion?

Do you believe it is merely physical, and thus, one isn't fully mature until he is in his mid-twenties?

Or do you believe it is in the mind, the ability to not be self-consumed, to see others, be aware of things around us, and understand/try to understand them?

WHAT is that line?

I donít think there is a line, or if there is it falls at different times for different people and I just havenít reached it yet.

I don't know anymore than the other two. Perhaps it's the point where people begin looking at you as an adult and not as a teen or a child.

I think it's an imaginary line - no one can see it. And I think it zigs and zags back and forth throughout our lives.

Well seeing as how I'm a 12 year old trapped in an 18.8 year old body, I can't say any more than the others. It all depends on the person, I think.

Hopelessly in love
