A mature person is one who

does not think only in absolutes,

who is able to be objective even

when deeply stirred emotionally,

who has learned that there is both good and bad

in all people and all things,

and who walks humbly and deals charitably

with the circumstances of life,

knowing that in this world no one

is all-knowing and therefore all of us

need both love and charity.

 

~ Eleanor Roosevelt
