Is It Aging or Maturity?

Wild Words from Wild Women:  “Most people don’t grow up.  Most people age.  They find parking spaces, honor their credit cards, get married, have children, and call that maturity.  What that is, is aging.”  – Maya Angelou, author

Aging makes no demands beyond following societal mores and putting in time.  Maturity means evaluating what society wants from you, making choices based on personal integrity, and creating a life that satisfies you … and it may not please anyone else.
