Top Immaturity Quotes

Immaturity Quotes By Jann Wenner

There's a level of immaturity to people who just can't clean up after themselves. — Jann Wenner

Immaturity Quotes By Peace Pilgrim

What people really suffer from is immaturity. Among mature people war would not be a problem - it would be impossible. — Peace Pilgrim

Immaturity Quotes By Craig D. Lounsbrough

The clash is born of the fact that the child within me sees with undiluted clarity what the adult within me is incessantly working to deny. And in these most vexing moments, to be the adult is to defer to the child. — Craig D. Lounsbrough

Immaturity Quotes By Joshua Loth Liebman

There has been among us, particularly in America, an adolescent competitiveness - a feeling that life is a race in which the victory of one must mean the defeat of the other. No one can measure how much personal unhappiness and inner cowardice have come from this immaturity of our social outlook, this childlike comparison, this absurd rivalry in every area of life. As our democracy becomes more mature, men have a chance of growing up and of realizing that every person is needed and has some contribution to make. — Joshua Loth Liebman

Immaturity Quotes By Ellen Glasgow

I had grown up in a world that was dominated by immature age. Not by vigorous immaturity, but by immaturity that was old and tired and prudent, that loved ritual and rubric, and was utterly wanting in curiosity about the new and the strange. Its era has passed away, and the world it made has crumbled around us. Its finest creation, a code of manners, has been ridiculed and discarded. — Ellen Glasgow

Immaturity Quotes By C. JoyBell C.

The problem of society today: An absolute lifestyle of entitlement. People gauge everything by "feeling", meaning whatever they feel like doing or whatever they don't feel like doing. Passion is valued over dedication. Instant gratification is prized over true fulfillment. They don't know that more than feeling; intuition is the better key. They don't know that more than passion; fulfillment and dedication are the better keys. True passion will produce dedication and ultimately - fulfillment. If not, then it should not be called passion; it should just be called a lack of self control/ immaturity. — C. JoyBell C.

Immaturity Quotes By Jon Meacham

Enlightenment is man's emergence from his self-imposed immaturity. ... 1 Nothing is required for this enlightenment ... except freedom; and the freedom in question is the least harmful of all, namely, the freedom to use reason publicly in all matters. - IMMANUEL KANT, What Is Enlightenment? — Jon Meacham

Immaturity Quotes By Edward Bunker

Your basic problem is emotional immaturity. You want life to be like in the movies, full of excitement. That's how a child's mind works, but the adults accept regularity, tedium, frustration. — Edward Bunker

Immaturity Quotes By Gabor Mate

As children become increasingly less connected to adults, they rely more and more on each other; the whole natural order of things change. In the natural order of all mammalian cultures, animals or humans, the young stay under the wings of adults until they themselves reach adulthood. Immature creatures were never meant to bring one another to maturity. They were never meant to look to one another for primary nurturing, modelling, cue giving or mentoring. They are not equipped to give one another a sense of direction or values. As a result of today's shift to this peer orientation, we are seeing the increasing immaturity, alienation, violence and precocious sexualization of North American Youth. The disruption of family life, rapid economic and social changes to human culture and relationships, and the erosion of stable communities are at the core of this shift. — Gabor Mate

Immaturity Quotes By Rick Warren

Longing for the ideal while criticizing the real is evidence of immaturity. On the other hand, settling for the real without striving for the ideal is complacency. Maturity is living with the tension. — Rick Warren

Immaturity Quotes By Nathaniel Branden

I am responsible for my personal happiness. One of the characteristics of immaturity is the belief that it is someone else's job to make me happy - much as it was once my parents' job to keep me alive. If only someone would love me, then I would love myself. If only someone would take care of me, then I would be contented. If only someone would spare me the necessity of making decisions, then I would be carefree. If only someone would make me happy. Here's a simple but powerful stem to wake one up to reality: If I take full responsibility for my personal happiness - . Taking responsibility for my happiness is empowering. It places my life back in my own hands. Ahead of taking this responsibility, I may imagine it will be a burden. What I discover is that it sets me free. — Nathaniel Branden

Immaturity Quotes By Lawrence G. Lovasik

Irritability is immaturity of character. If you are subject to being cross and unpleasant with others for no apparent reason, you need to come face-to-face with the fact that you are thinking too much of yourself. After all, your feelings are not the most important thing in this world. — Lawrence G. Lovasik

Immaturity Quotes By Stephenie Meyer

It was all very childish. Why on earth should Edward have to leave for Jacob to come over? Weren't we past this immaturity? — Stephenie Meyer

Immaturity Quotes By Criss Jami

Pseudo-artists think that being an artist means opposing whatever seems to be an establishment. That is not creative at all. True creativity is the ability to gain perspective wherever you may have missed it before. — Criss Jami

Immaturity Quotes By Nelson Rodrigues

The young have all the same flaws adults do. Plus one: immaturity. — Nelson Rodrigues

Immaturity Quotes By C. JoyBell C.

Childishness and childlikeness are two very different things. To know a childlike person, is to know a very mature person; to know a childish person, is to know a very immature person. To know childlikeness is to know original wisdom; to know childishness is to know original error. And there are many children more mature than adults, many adults less mature than children. — C. JoyBell C.

Immaturity Quotes By Brian Spellman

I finally decided what I want to be when I grow up - late. — Brian Spellman

Immaturity Quotes By Mark Zero

... she was a pudding of immaturity and precocious wisdom that had not yet set into a stable mold. — Mark Zero

Immaturity Quotes By Eugene H. Peterson

So here's what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life - your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life - and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don't become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You'll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you. — Eugene H. Peterson

Immaturity Quotes By Joseph Campbell

To evolve out of this position of psychological immaturity to the courage of self-responsibility and assurance requires a death and a resurrection. That's the basic motif of the universal hero's journey - leaving one condition and finding the source of life to bring you forth into a richer or mature condition. — Joseph Campbell

Immaturity Quotes By Craig D. Lounsbrough

Things that are truly great need nothing from me, and to somehow think that they do speaks to my utter lack of greatness. — Craig D. Lounsbrough

Immaturity Quotes By Criss Jami

What I admire about the modern atheist is not at all his logic, but rather his gift of imagination. There will always be the cartoon versions of Christianity further perpetuated by the extremist atheists who do not possess the humility to ask real scholars and theologians its difficult questions. There is little doubt that the atheist has the bigger imagination: the first reason is due to his persistent caricatures of what constitutes a Christian; the second because of his belief that most of his questions are actually rhetorical. From this I can infer that, instead of laughing at one another (the Christian at modern atheist immaturity and the modern atheist at Christian stupidity), we would have a better chance at productivity laughing with one another as we all dumb down what we don't understand. — Criss Jami

Immaturity Quotes By Confucius

There are cases in which the blade springs, but the plant does not go on to flower. There are cases where it flowers, but no fruit is subsequently produced. — Confucius

Immaturity Quotes By Vishal Chipkar

When we treat God as a different identity, our thought process becomes dualistic in nature. This is due to the self ignorance, ego and immaturity; in simple words, less knowledge about our own immortality. — Vishal Chipkar

Immaturity Quotes By Innocent Mwatsikesimbe

Is it not a sign of immaturity to wish for someone's downfall? To wish that he or she fails at whatever productive endeavours they are aiming at? Wishing to be the only one succeeding, while everyone else fails?
It's a world where we are all dependent on one another, one way or the other; and trade is happening at a much more sophisticated level than ever before. It is to our collective benefit for people to succeed. — Innocent Mwatsikesimbe

Immaturity Quotes By Brandon Sanderson

I've always been very confident in my immaturity. — Brandon Sanderson

Immaturity Quotes By Gary L. Thomas

With Christ in us and the Holy Spirit transforming us, we really have no excuse for continuing immaturity. — Gary L. Thomas

Immaturity Quotes By Max Hastings

In Soviet thinking the concept of economy of force has little place. Whereas to an Englishman the taking of a sledgehammer to crack a nut is a wrong decision and a sign of mental immaturity ... in Russian eyes the cracking of nuts is clearly what sledgehammers are for. — Max Hastings

Immaturity Quotes By Vishal Chipkar

Anything or everything treated as a 'Problem' on planet earth, falls under the clause of mankind's Self' Ignorance , Ego & Immaturity. — Vishal Chipkar

Immaturity Quotes By Derek Landy

She had been a teenager once, and she knew that, despite the apparent contradictions, a person's teenage years lasted well into their fifties. — Derek Landy

Immaturity Quotes By Witold Gombrowicz

There is nothing that the mature hate more, there is nothing that disgusts them more, than immaturityWitold Gombrowicz

Immaturity Quotes By Henry Steele Commager

To yearn for a single, and usually simple, explanation of the chaotic materials of the past, to search for a single thread in that most tangled of all skeins, is a sign of immaturity. — Henry Steele Commager

Immaturity Quotes By Blaise Pascal

How shall one who is so weak in his childhood become really strong when he grows older? We only change our fancies. — Blaise Pascal

Immaturity Quotes By Sarah Bessey

We first take our everyday, ordinary life - our sleeping, eating, going-to-work life - and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for us is the best thing we can do for him. When we fix our attention on God, we'll be changed from the inside out. We'll readily recognize what he wants from us and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around us, always dragging us down to its level of immaturity, God brings out the best in us, develops well-formed maturity."3 — Sarah Bessey

Immaturity Quotes By Suzy Kassem

Choose a leader who will invest in building bridges, not walls. Books, not weapons. Morality, not corruption. Intellectualism and wisdom, not ignorance. Stability, not fear and terror. Peace, not chaos. Love, not hate. Convergence, not segregation. Tolerance, not discrimination. Fairness, not hypocrisy. Substance, not superficiality. Character, not immaturity. Transparency, not secrecy. Justice, not lawlessness. Environmental improvement and preservation, not destruction. Truth, not lies. — Suzy Kassem

Immaturity Quotes By Vincent Brooks

My room is a grave yard of whisky bottles in a swamp of stale beer, cigar ashes, and dick jokes. — Vincent Brooks

Immaturity Quotes By Luke Pasqualino

There's really quite a beautiful marriage between Milady's ingenuity and D'Artagnan's immaturity. When they first meet, she's trying to frame him. She's using him for a certain reason. They haven't just met by coincidence. She's singled him out for a reason. She knows that she can almost make D'Artagnan do what she wants to, and that's when D'Artagnan's immaturity comes out. — Luke Pasqualino

Immaturity Quotes By Julie Sondra Decker

Asexual people are often told they will one day find "the one" and develop sexual feelings and the values society attaches to them. Many asexual folks have to hear this over and over and over again, which thrusts a perpetual image of immaturity upon them. Asexuality is not a signal that a person is necessarily stunted emotionally or physically, and feeling sexual attraction or inclination is not the line everyone must cross to be treated like an adult. Maturity should not be measured by willingness or inclination to seek out or accept sexual experiences. [p. 7] — Julie Sondra Decker

Immaturity Quotes By Immanuel Kant

Immaturity is the incapacity to use one's intelligence without the guidance of another. — Immanuel Kant

Immaturity Quotes By Noorilhuda

Aurora, you're a child, live like one, don't act like one. Enjoy the innocence, dump the immaturity. — Noorilhuda

Immaturity Quotes By Albert Mohler

The absence of consistent biblical worldview thinking is a key mark of spiritual immaturity. — Albert Mohler

Immaturity Quotes By Aprille Legacy

There's a difference between immaturity and not being ready, and there's a certain maturity in admitting that you're not ready. — Aprille Legacy

Immaturity Quotes By Miles J. Stanford

God ... doesn't intend to help us live the Christian life. Immaturity considers the Lord Jesus a Helper. Maturity knows Him to be life itself. — Miles J. Stanford

Immaturity Quotes By Colleen Truscott Fry

It's my opinion, with some people, just knowing they are alone, living inside of their own miserable, self hating, dysfunctional mind, with their own immature, insecure, self pitying self is its own revenge. Their existence is their karma. — Colleen Truscott Fry

Immaturity Quotes By Immanuel Kant

The main point of enlightenment is man's release from his self-caused immaturity, primarily in matters of religion. — Immanuel Kant

Immaturity Quotes By Brandon Sanderson

Jasnah sniffed. Your tutors were idiots. Youthful immaturity is one of the cosmere's great catalysts for change, Shallan. — Brandon Sanderson

Immaturity Quotes By Mustafa Akyol

Rage is a sign of nothing but immaturity. The power of any faith comes not from its coercion of critics and dissenters. It comes from the moral integrity and the intellectual strength of its believers. — Mustafa Akyol

Immaturity Quotes By Antoine De Saint-Exupery

I have had, in the course of my life, lots of encounters and lots of serious people. I have spent lots of time with grown-ups. I have seen them at close range ... which haven't much improved my opinion of them. — Antoine De Saint-Exupery

Immaturity Quotes By Franklin D. Roosevelt

I am neither bitter nor cynical but I do wish there was less immaturity in political thinking. — Franklin D. Roosevelt

Immaturity Quotes By Anais Nin

While analyzing so many people I realized the constant need of a mother, or a father, or a god (the same thing) is really immaturity. It is a childish need, a human need, but so universal that I can see how it gave birth to all religions. — Anais Nin

Immaturity Quotes By Fred Gipson

... I guessed that when you are nearly a man, you have to learn to put up with a lot of aggravation from little old bitty kids. — Fred Gipson

Immaturity Quotes By Jon Meacham

Immaturity is the inability to use one's understanding without guidance from another. — Jon Meacham

Immaturity Quotes By Robert McLiam Wilson

( ... ) I knew I couldn't sleep with her. I don't know - in my small experience of women, I've found it to hard to sleep with them at such times. Times when you get impression that there's more to them than an opportunity. Sleeping with girls was great, sleeping with people was a bit more complicated. Maybe it was a bad thing, maybe a sign of my immaturity, but I knew that there was some kind of tenderness in it as well. — Robert McLiam Wilson

Immaturity Quotes By Mokokoma Mokhonoana

It is a sign of immaturity to believe that being older than someone (automatically) makes you more (mentally) mature than them. — Mokokoma Mokhonoana

Immaturity Quotes By Michelle Alexander

More African American adults are under correctional control today - in prison or jail, on probation or parole - than were enslaved in 1850, a decade before the Civil War began.7 The mass incarceration of people of color is a big part of the reason that a black child born today is less likely to be raised by both parents than a black child born during slavery.8 The absence of black fathers from families across America is not simply a function of laziness, immaturity, or too much time watching Sports Center. Thousands of black men have disappeared into prisons and jails, locked away for drug crimes that are largely ignored when committed by whites. — Michelle Alexander

Immaturity Quotes By Vishal Chipkar

Our planet for Superhumans.

Let us change the name of our planet as Divine Home,
Let us compel the higher consciousness to descend upon our divine home, Let us change the United Nations to United Humans. When the self ignorance, ego and immaturity is removed from mankind, politics and religion will no more exist,
When politics is removed, borders won't be required, When the religion is removed, hatred, misbelief and mass ignorance will not exist, god as dual wont exist.
Let us live on the 29% earth as one Home, the divine home.
Welcome Superhumans". — Vishal Chipkar

Immaturity Quotes By Criss Jami

Good friends will allow you to be as innocent and free as a child when in private, and as wise and mature as an adult when in public. — Criss Jami

Immaturity Quotes By MaryJanice Davidson

You have attained maturity; display it for us, if you please. — MaryJanice Davidson

Immaturity Quotes By Pearl S. Buck

Introversion, at least if extreme, is a sign of mental and spiritual immaturity. — Pearl S. Buck

Immaturity Quotes By Immanuel Kant

Enlightenment is man's leaving his self-caused immaturity. Immaturity is the incapacity to use one's intelligence without the guidance of another. Such immaturity is self-caused if it is not caused by lack of intelligence, but by lack of determination and courage to use one's intelligence without being guided by another. Sapere Aude! Have the courage to use your own intelligence! is therefore the motto of the enlightenment ... — Immanuel Kant

Immaturity Quotes By Barbara W. Tuchman

Had I known that these legs were to carry a Lord Chancellor, I would have taken better care of them when I was a lad. Duke of Grafton — Barbara W. Tuchman

Immaturity Quotes By Nanavira Thera

A man may take his own life for many reasons, and it is impossible to make a general statement; but whenever suicide is a gesture - done, that is, to impress or influence or embarrass others - it is always, so it seems to me, a sign of immaturity and muddled thinking. However much we may admire the fortitude of this Vietnamese monk, the wisdom of his action remains very much in doubt. I do not know the details of the provocation offered by the Catholic Head of State, but the monk appears to have killed himself 'fighting for the cause of Buddhism'. Certainly this action is infinitely more honourable than the setting fire to churches and the crowning of statues that seem to be the favoured methods of giving battle in this country; but it does not follow that it is any the less misguided. — Nanavira Thera

Immaturity Quotes By Beth Moore

Hardship sometimes comes as a direct result of sin and disobedience. We are usually aware when consequences of sin have caused us deep suffering, but many other times, trials have nothing to do with disobedience. Yet we may wonder why we can't muster enough faith to be healthy, problem-free, and prosperous. Please be encouraged to know that difficulty is not a sign of immaturity or faithlessness. The Holy Spirit will do His job and let you know if you're suffering because of sin. Otherwise, remember - we all suffer many hardships. The key difference is this: ours are never in vain. — Beth Moore

Immaturity Quotes By Julie Wright

We all carry around baskets of eggs, and these eggs are precious, they represent information about us, our concerns, our needs, our lives, our downfalls, everything. As we meet people and become more comfortable with them, we toss some of our eggs to these people and they, in turn, place those eggs in their baskets. But, there are times, when out of desperation, or immaturity, or whatever, we throw too many eggs at once, and the recipient can't catch them all, and a few get broken, and we then find out that this other person knows too much about us, or at least more than they wanted to know, and that then destroys the ability to truly be friends. — Julie Wright

Immaturity Quotes By Dervla Murphy

[On Addis Ababa:] Among the city's handicaps are an immaturity for which no one can be blamed, as it was founded only eighty years ago, and a proliferation of architectural excesses for which many people can and should be blamed. — Dervla Murphy

Immaturity Quotes By Jon Meacham

Under Small's influence Jefferson came to share Immanuel Kant's 1784 definition of the spirit of the era: "Enlightenment is man's emergence from his self-imposed immaturity," Kant wrote.21 "Immaturity is the inability to use one's understanding without guidance from another. This immaturity is self-imposed when its cause lies not in lack of understanding, but in lack of resolve and courage to use it without guidance from another. — Jon Meacham

Immaturity Quotes By John Shelby Spong

Oh the Christian church has encouraged enormous immaturity among the peoples who are its primary adherence. — John Shelby Spong

Immaturity Quotes By Anthony Burgess

The essence of pop stardom is immaturity - a wretched little pseudo-musical gift, a development of the capacity to shock, a short-lived notoriety, extreme depression, a yielding to the suicidal impulse. — Anthony Burgess

Immaturity Quotes By Betty Friedan

We have gone on too long blaming or pitying the mothers who devour their children, who sow the seeds of progressive dehumanization, because they have never grown to full humanity themselves. If the mother is at fault, why isn't it time to break the pattern by urging all these Sleeping Beauties to grow up and live their own lives? There never will be enough Prince Charmings or enough therapists to break that pattern now. It is society's job, and finally that of each woman alone. For it is not the strength of the mothers that is at fault but their weakness, their passive childlike dependency and immaturity that is mistaken for "femininity." Our society forces boys, insofar as it can, to grow up, to endure the pains of growth, to educate themselves to work, to move on. Why aren't girls forced to grow up - to achieve somehow the core of self that will end the unnecessary dilemma, the mistaken choice between femaleness and humanness that is implied in the feminine mystique? — Betty Friedan

Immaturity Quotes By Edgar Lee Masters

The much-sought prize of eternal youth
Is just arrested growth. — Edgar Lee Masters

Immaturity Quotes By Matthew B. Crawford

Centuries ago, the irritant was established cultural authorities that shackled the mind in "self-imposed immaturity," as Kant said. But our emergence from immaturity seems to have stalled at an adolescent stage, like a hippie who hasn't aged very well. The irritants that stand out now are the self-delusions that have sprouted up around a project of liberation that has gone to seed, ushering in a "culture of performance" that makes us depressed. — Matthew B. Crawford

Immaturity Quotes By Gina Barreca

In short, immaturity is spoiled. And what is spoiled doesn't ripen. It goes bad early, gets bitter and withers on the vine. — Gina Barreca

Immaturity Quotes By Will Wight

Continue demonstrating your immaturity," the Eldest said. "Surely, I will be persuaded then. — Will Wight

Immaturity Quotes By Immanuel Kant

It is difficult for the isolated individual to work himself out of the immaturity which has become almost natural for him. He has even become fond of it and for the time being is incapable of employing his own intelligence, because he has never been allowed to make the attempt. Statutes and formulas, these mechanical tools of a serviceable use, or rather misuse, of his natural faculties, are the ankle-chains of a continuous immaturity. Whoever threw it off would make an uncertain jump over the smallest trench because he is not accustomed to such free movement. Therefore there are only a few who have pursued a firm path and have succeeded in escaping from immaturity by their own cultivation of the mind. — Immanuel Kant

Immaturity Quotes By Milan Kundera

How can she explain to Gustaf that within the magic circle of maternal energy, Irena has never manage to rule over her own life? How can she explain that the constant proximity of the mother would throw her back, into her weakness, her immaturity? — Milan Kundera

Immaturity Quotes By Alfred Kinsey

There is a tendency to consider anything in human behavior that is unusual, not well known, or not well understood, as neurotic, psychopathic, immature, perverse, or the expression of some other sort of psychologic disturbance. — Alfred Kinsey

Immaturity Quotes By Daniel Mackler

Untraumatized people have a natural instinct to make healthy decisions in the best interest of their true selves. They are only limited by their immaturity and the brokenness of their external world. — Daniel Mackler

Immaturity Quotes By Edwin Louis Cole

Maturity comes not with age but with the acceptance of responsibility. You are only young once but immaturity can last a lifetime! — Edwin Louis Cole

Immaturity Quotes By Harry Overstreet

To the immature, other people are not real. — Harry Overstreet

Immaturity Quotes By F Scott Fitzgerald

He was ashamed of baiting the man, realizing that the absurdity of the story rested in the immaturity of the attitude combined with the sophisticated method of its narration. — F Scott Fitzgerald

Immaturity Quotes By Erica Goros

I'm of the age and immaturity level that I cannot give you my respect solely because you are older or ranked higher on an imaginary totem pole. I give you my respect because of your actions. — Erica Goros

Immaturity Quotes By Thomas King

You know what they say. If at first you don't succeed, try the same thing again. Sometimes the effort is called persistence and is the mark of a strong will. Sometimes it's called perseveration and is a sign of immaturity. For an individual, one of the definitions of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again in the same way and expecting different results. For a government, such behavior is called ... policy. — Thomas King

Immaturity Quotes By Samantha Young

Now go. Hang out with your friends and be immature. Responsible," I added hurriedly, "but immature."
He made a face. "Do those two go hand in hand?"
"If your immaturity can lead to consequences, then it's irresponsible."
Cole grunted. "You should write that shi- stuff down."
"I heard the "shit" in there, baby boy, and I'm stealing the last PopTart as punishment."
"Harsh, Jo." He shook his head, backing off with a smile. "Harsh. — Samantha Young

Immaturity Quotes By Peace Pilgrim

The basic cause of all our difficulties is immaturity. That's why I talk so much about peace within ourselves as a step toward peace in our world. If we were mature, war would not be possible and peace would be assured. In our immaturity we do not know the laws of the universe, and we think evil can be overcome by more evil. One symptom of our immaturity is greed, making it difficult for us to learn the simple lesson of sharing ... — Peace Pilgrim

Immaturity Quotes By Phillip Lopate

Doubt is my boon companion, the faithful St. Bernard ever at my side. Whether writing essays or just going about daily life, I am constantly second-guessing myself. My mind is filled with 'yes, buts,' 'so whats?' and other skeptical rejoinders. I am forever monitoring myself for traces of folly, insensitivity, arrogance, false humility, cruelty, stupidity, immaturity and, guess what, I keep finding examples. Age has not made me wiser, except maybe in retrospect. — Phillip Lopate

Immaturity Quotes By Dave Barry

What I look forward to is continued immaturity followed by death. — Dave Barry

Immaturity Quotes By Maxim Gorky

We must endure, Alyosha. That was the only thing she could say in response to my accounts of the ugliness and dreariness of life, of the suffering of the people - of everything against which I protested so vehemently. I was not made for endurance, and if occasionally I exhibited this virtue of cattle, wood, and stone, I did so only to test myself, to try my strength and my stability. Sometimes young people, in the foolishness of immaturity, or in envy of the strength of their elders, strive, even successfully, to lift weights that overtax their bones and muscles; in their vanity they attempt to cross themselves with two-pood weights, like mature athletes. I too did this, in the literal and figurative sense, physically and spiritually, and only good fortune kept me from injuring myself fatally or crippling myself for life.
For nothing cripples a person so dreadfully as endurance, as a humble submission to the forces of circumstance. — Maxim Gorky

Immaturity Quotes By Philip Pullman

The Specters feast as vampires feast on blood, but the Specters' food is attention. A conscious and informed interest in the world. The immaturity of children is less attractive to them. — Philip Pullman

Immaturity Quotes By Mireille Guiliano

Wine is a living, breathing thing during its time in the bottle and in the glass. It is always changing, especially in the glass. A little oxygen can really open up and release the flavors in a complex wine, as well as mellow the rougher edge of immaturity. — Mireille Guiliano

Immaturity Quotes By Coco Chanel

I'm so sick of immaturity, of name-calling, of labels, of gossip, of high school. It doesn't make sense anymore, and I find myself being nice to people that I want to strangle. — Coco Chanel

Immaturity Quotes By Arnold J. Toynbee

Immaturity means self-centeredness, inability to compromise, to rise above hurt feelings, to postpone immediate pleasures in favor of future benefits, or to do unpleasant chores when they need to be done. — Arnold J. Toynbee

Immaturity Quotes By Friedrich Nietzsche

All religions bear traces of the fact that they arose during the intellectual immaturity of the human race - before it had learned the obligations to speak the truth. Not one of them makes it the duty of its god to be truthful and understandable in his communications. — Friedrich Nietzsche

Immaturity Quotes By Rebecca McNutt

Cell phones are certainly not necessary, and "but I'm from the digital age, this is what everyone in my generation is doing!" isn't a very good excuse for being hooked on a glowing screen 24/7. In the 1960's every teen of the times was tripping on acid and running off to find themselves in communes and love buses. It was a fad, there was no excuse for it and it passed, just like I think that this generation's "cell phones are necessary for socialization" fad will eventually pass. What will it bring afterwards? I don't even want to know, but I'll keep my fingers crossed and hope that it isn't anything else digital. — Rebecca McNutt

Immaturity Quotes By Radhanath Swami

Through the practice of devotion to God, I was coming to learn that preserving loving relations in this world required much forgiveness, tolerance, patience, gratitude, and humility. An essential virtue of humility is to accept others for what they are, despite differences. I contemplated again how the tendency to judge others is often a symptom of insecurity, immaturity, or selfishness, and I yearned to rise above it. Everyone is a child of God. God loves all of His children. If I wish to love God, I must learn to love those whom He loves. — Radhanath Swami

Immaturity Quotes By Mikhail Naimy

Logic is immaturity weaving its nets of gossamer wherewith it aims to catch the behemoth of knowledge. Logic is a crutch for the cripple, but a burden for the swift of foot and a greater burden still for the wise. — Mikhail Naimy

Immaturity Quotes By Immanuel Kant

There will always be some people who think for themselves, even among the self-appointed guardians of the great mass who, after having thrown off the yoke of immaturity themselves, will spread about them the spirit of a reasonable estimate of their own value and of the need for every man to think for himself. — Immanuel Kant

Immaturity Quotes By Aristophanes

Youth ages, immaturity is outgrown, ignorance can be educated, and drunkenness sobered, but stupid lasts forever. — Aristophanes

Immaturity Quotes By Fred Gipson

Well, when you're fourteen years old, you can't afford to mix in a rock fight with your five-year-old brother. You can't do it, even when you're in the right. You just can't explain a thing like that to your folks. All they'll do is point out how much bigger you are, how unfair it is to your little brother. — Fred Gipson

Immaturity Quotes By Stacy Bierlein

So unfair, she thought. Her baby was going to grow up, and her husband wasn't. — Stacy Bierlein
