    A strong man does not loose his temper he is

    simply disappointed. A strong man does not yell, he influences with a whisper. A strong man can be firm yet does so gently. A strong man is powerful yet humble. A strong man is a friend of man …

    Maturity can be defined simply by a persons

    attitude, little else! Age isn't relevant to it as much as everyone might think. Upbringing is a factor, a practicality in the definition.

    I've had a better time with younger people

    than I've had with a lot of people my age, even teenagers, they deserve a lot more credit than we give them. They know more than a lot of people think they do, In a lot of things, a lot of younger guys have taught me a thing or two haha

    Today is my 75th birthday.

    Three quarters of a century has sped past like an express train, leaving me wondering where it all went. I came from a poor but respectable and loving family, an only child but brought up with numerous cousins so never lonely. Apart from a couple of extremely inconvenient...

    I learned about the obedience to authority

    that is expected from us, the hard way this week. A professor offended me so much with what he said, and showed me no respect whatsoever, and expected me to listen to his orders which I disagreed with. And I'm sure he thought he could do this because he's a professor and I'm...

    People say they are open-minded

    and not judgmental of people they don't know, but so many people won't talk to me because I'm between the ages of 18-21, or when they do talk to me, it's of a very sexual and personal nature. Don't get me wrong, if it's the right person, then it makes for a fun time. I'm not so...

    In my opinion, maturity doesn't come with age,

    it comes with experience. I find it extremely annoying when adults tell younger people that they are too young to understand something, or they aren't smart enough to understand something because of their age. It seems like a lot of adults act like they are superior to younger...

    problem with maturity is the same

    as anywhere else - the ideas most mature cannot be identified as that by people of lesser maturity so even "maturity" gets a victim of the masses idiotae

    Men who act like a**holes.

    Women who are still into high school drama. I don't think age is maturity, it's experience and an understanding of how the world works

    Honestly. It doesn't.

    The 13-15 year olds seem to be more mature then some of the adults on ep, some people need to act their age.

    People need to see, it's not about sexuality

    it's about how big your heart is how amazing and beautiful your personality is because it is not about what you are but about who you are, not what your sexuality is, it does not define you as a person it is apart of you and so is many more things, your sexuality is simply a...

    Whenever I'm out with my parents or speaking to adults, they all always tell me i carry myself in a very mature manner, and i believe i do. The thing is i don try to, that's just the way i am. I have a brother 6 years older than me, so that could also be a reason I'm so mature...

    Do inform me. What does the physical age of a

    person say about them, other than the amount of years that they have been living here? An age has no set limitation. For instance- some people learn to walk or talk earlier or later than others. It isn't weird. This is similar to maturity. You see, physical age and mental age...

    Just because you are 18-21 doesn't mean you are

    mature, mentally. There are very immature people that age, I'm sure. A 13-15 year old could know better then a 18-21 year can. I just hate when "adults" on here tell me, "oh u r 13 so u r not mature at all! ur just a child". Not true.
