Maturity – Is the ability to control anger and settle differences without violence and destruction.

Maturity – Is patience. It is the willingness to pass up immediate pleasure in favor of long-term gain.

Maturity – Is perseverance. The ability to sweat out a project or a situation of heavy opposition and discouraging setbacks.

Maturity – Is the capacity to face unpleasantness and frustration, discomfort, and defeat, without complaint or collapse.

Maturity – Is humility. It is being big enough to say “I was wrongâ€
