As a grown adult, if you can’t look a woman or look a man in the eye and say, ‘I have serious feelings for you’ and instead you have to say, ‘Do you like me? Check yes or no,’ like we’re in grade school, that to me is a red flag of maturity as far as a relationship goes.

Being an 18 year-old football player, there are temptations. There are girls. There’s going out to parties. There’s doing this; there’s doing that. There is drinking and blah, blah, blah.

Every riff had to be perfect and heavy, collectively what we wanted it to be. If there was one person in the room who went, ‘Heh, I don’t think it is there yet, guys,’ we’d scrap the whole song. I think that took a little bit of songwriting maturity for us.

Daniel Ricciardo

Girl in the City Chapter 2′ will still continue to revolve around Meera Sehgal and her life, her friends, and her passion. The stark difference in ‘Chapter 2’ will be that all the characters have now grown up in the series – in terms of maturity if not so much age.

Mithila Palkar

Granted, I’ve changed internally as I’ve gotten older – I take it easy, I know when to stop and take care of myself, I laugh much more and with my belly and soul – but this comes from the confidence and acceptance that comes with maturity.

Logan Lerman

I guess real maturity, which most of us never achieve, is when you realize that you’re not the center of the universe.

I guess whatever maturity is there may be there because I’ve been keeping a journal forever. In high school my friends would make fun of me – you’re doing your man diary again. So I was always trying to translate experience into words.

I had a lot of adversity that kind of tested my maturity and things I was able to learn from and were put in my way for a reason, to make me a mature person and more experienced person.

Marcus Smart

I had a mind inquiring enough to question world events, as well as the passion fostered by my background to care, but I lacked the emotional maturity to process these things. That made me ripe for Islamist recruitment. Into this ferment came my recruiter, himself straight out of a London medical college.

Maajid Nawaz

I have never been a fan of bond funds. Unlike a direct investment in an individual bond that you can hold to maturity and be assured you will get your principal back (assuming no default), a fund has no finite maturity date and most funds are actively traded.

I just used to back my instincts and go with the flow. Lately, I’ve realised that once you play at the highest level you’ve got to take that maturity to another stage.

I just want to be remembered as a person who loved God, who served others more than he served himself, who was trying to grow in maturity and stability.

Kurt Sutter

I never really had a teenage experience. I went from childhood to maturity, and in some ways, it short-circuited me emotionally.

Robbie Robertson

I prefer to do roles that suit my mental maturity.

I think being a little older and a little more determined and being a little more evolved in my case and maturity in the kind of music I was doing and how I was doing it really helped to keep me grounded and with an audience that could appreciate what I was doing, who grew with me and evolved with me and kept me alive and around.

Al Jarreau

I think it’s a change that I did not intend at the time but it is clear that, from The Flower of My Secret on, there is a change in my films. A lot of the journalists have very generously attributed this to my growing maturity.

Son Ye-jin

I think part of maturity is knowing who you are.

I think that shows a level of maturity and understanding that I think bodes well for getting to the bottom of this. But it is really up to you and your staff, on behalf of the American people, to take on that challenge.

David Kay

I think what’s happening for me, it’s fun to see other things besides Facebook and Twitter take hold. The maturity of Tumblr as a real player is exciting. I think Pinterest has proved to be a major player. It’s fun to see Instagram become a major player. It’s fun to watch things like SnapChat, and Vine, try to vie to be the next thing.

Gary Vaynerchuk

I want garments that reflect my personality. It’s difficult to find in the childrenswear department. And often, womenswear requires far too many alterations. I want shoes that affect my maturity, professionalism, and sophistication. Instead, I’m offered sneakers with Velcro straps and light-up shoes.

Sinead Burke

I wanted to play Super 15. I wanted to develop some maturity, some leadership and to work on my skill set. Also I want to have played all round the world.

Pablo Sandoval

I was introduced to Zendaya by one of the executives at Fox, and like every single person who’s met her, you completely fall in love with her talent and her maturity.

Michael Gracey

I was way behind in my maturity. I was a 30-year-old acting like a 23-year-old. So when I was 21, I was probably acting like a 15-year-old.

Dale Earnhardt Jr.

I went from adolescence to senility, trying to bypass maturity.

Benjamin Spock

I’d date someone younger or older; age doesn’t matter to me. Or looks, really – it’s all about maturity.

Leona Lewis

I’d like to be with a guy who’s in touch with his feminine side. He should be a lover of art, music and culture. A guy with a sense of humour, openness and emotional maturity is a big turn-on.

Lisa Haydon

If any human being is to reach full maturity both the masculine and feminine sides of the personality must be brought up into consciousness.

M. Esther Harding

If I hadn’t gone through the hardships I’ve gone through and been rebuked and hated by the Giant fans and the Cowboy fans and the Raider fans, I would not have been nourished in the area of maturity.

Randall Cunningham

If you think you are young, then that is what you will be. I also feel that with age, comes maturity. But if you think that you are old, then that is what you will be.

Karan Wahi

I’ll always thank all of the teams I played for from the bottom of my heart because they all helped me grow as a person and a footballer, but the three years I spent in Naples were fantastic. That city gave me everything – my name, maturity, and international recognition. I get very emotional when Naples is mentioned.

Edinson Cavani

I’m 18 in this album. I’m not losing fans, and I’m not disrepecting women, but you reach the maturity of taking it to the next level with a girl. It was only necessary for me to have at least one song like that.

Chris Brown

I’m aware that I’m now a role model for younger players. I bring more maturity to practice – it’s more of a work environment to me, where I consciously work to get better each day.

Tobin Heath

I’m exploring the maturity, the wisdom that just comes from having gone around the sun 50 times. My experience is, ‘Oh, I’m never really going to get it right. I’m never going to get it done. But that’s not the point here.’ The point is the journey.

Melissa Etheridge

In 1990, Paul Smith and I decided that conducting polymers as materials had developed to a level of maturity that commercial products were possible. With this as a goal, we founded UNLAX Corporation.

Alan J. Heeger

In any case, if I grow hybrid maize or hybrid pearl mallet or any hybrid, I have to sow fresh seed every year. I cannot keep the seed of the same plant. If I keep the seed of the same plant, yield will be much less and there will be a wide variation in the field, like maturity period, quality and so on.

M. S. Swaminathan

In Christ we see a maturity of love that flowers in self-sacrifice and forgiveness; a maturity of power that never swerves from the ideal of service; a maturity of goodness that overcomes every temptation, and, of course, we see the ultimate victory of life over death itself.

Vincent Nichols

In my opinion, boys should not start with films before they are at least 24 years of age, because emoting on screen needs a certain amount of maturity, and a lot rides on an actor’s shoulders.

Poonam Dhillon

In the end, it’s a mental maturity to let your best come out.

Lindsey Vonn

Indeed, the FHA was born out of the Great Depression, which was also caused in significant part by a foreclosure crisis. Mortgages in the early 1930s were mostly three- to five-year ‘bullet’ loans, which did not amortize and were due in full at maturity.

Mark Zandi

It often occurs to me that this is a strange way to make a living. But it’s wonderful, too. There are many ways to read maturity, and I’m not fighting the instinct to simply enjoy that kind of nonsense. I love that someone would pay me to draw on somebody else’s bottom.

Robin Marantz Henig

Know how to behave at a fine restaurant, which is a telltale measure of social maturity.

Knowledge comes, but wisdom lingers. It may not be difficult to store up in the mind a vast quantity of facts within a comparatively short time, but the ability to form judgments requires the severe discipline of hard work and the tempering heat of experience and maturity.

Calvin Coolidge

Learning lessons is a little like reaching maturity. You’re not suddenly more happy, wealthy, or powerful, but you understand the world around you better, and you’re at peace with yourself. Learning life’s lessons is not about making your life perfect, but about seeing life as it was meant to be.

Elisabeth Kubler-Ross

Looking back at my career, I wish I knew then what I know now… that gender bias is built into the system, and it’s unconscious in many ways. I wish I had the maturity and courage to have pushed back more. I was always trying to be a ‘good girl’ and play by the rules.

Ann Landers

Mine is, after all, the generation that had come to maturity drinking in the forebodings of the Silones, Koestlers, and Richard Wrights. It had left us ill-prepared for decisions that had to be made in our own time about Algeria, Birmingham, or the Bay of Pigs.

Frances Tiafoe

Obviously, the young dancers lack a certain air of maturity.

Mikhail Baryshnikov

One of the catches with being a dope artist is saying the same exact thing a trillion different ways, and being able to get across somehow differently every time. The way to express maturity and growth and evolution is to do that throughout the music.

Short stories are often strong meat. Reading them, even listening to them, can be challenging, by which I do not mean hard work, simply that a certain amount of nerve and maturity is required.

Chris Hadfield

The dueling maturity levels in high school is such a source of comedy to me. I was always such a late developer. I was last to walk. I was last to ride a bike. I was last to have sex. That’s why it’s fun to portray one side of your childhood onscreen.

Paul Feig

The fertility cycle is a cycle entirely of living creatures passing again and again through birth, growth, maturity, death, and decay.

Wendell Berry

The first song that I wrote that I was proud of was probably ‘Hunter’ from the first record. But I listen that now and I don’t know. I mean, it’s got a good hook, but still. I’m proud of it. I’m as proud as I can be of all the ideas, but I think ‘Party’ showed a maturity that I don’t think I had on ‘Aldous Harding.’

Aldous Harding

The Interros strategy toward various assets generally depends on the stage of their development and level of their maturity.
