How mature do you think you are?

"Maturity is the ability: to do a job whether you're supervised or not;
to finish a job once it's started; to carry money without spending it;
and to bear an injustice without wanting to get even."
~ Abigail van Buren (often misattributed to twin sister, Ann Landers)

(My view exactly — except I have never been able to articulate it as well as Abigail van Buren, who, way back in 1956, founded the extremely popular advice column, Dear Abby. To read the column, which is now being run by Abigail van Buren's daughter, go here.)
