A Quote by Nancy Chodorow on certainty, desires, inclusion, independence, maturity, needs, and relationships

Maturity is not equated with independence though it includes a certain capacity for independence...The independence of the mature person is simply that he does not collapse when he has to stand alone. It is not an independence of needs for other persons with whom to have relationship: that would not be desired by the mature.

A Quote by Kabbalah on earth, learning, maturity, motherhood, and security

We must learn not to disassociate the airy flower from the earthy root, for the flower that is cut off from its root fades, and its seeds are barren, whereas the root, secure in mother earth, can produce flower after flower and bring their fruit to maturity.

Kabbalah (BC 1200? - 700? AD)

A Quote by Isaiah Bowman on citizenship, clarity, conscience, education, good, maturity, nobility, respect, sharing, society, and world

Citizenship comes first today in our crowded world. . . . No man can enjoy the privileges of education and thereafter with a clear conscience break his contract with society. To respect that contract is to be mature, to strengthen it is to be a good citizen, to do more than your share under it is to be noble.
