Dear Abby has a little letter on the end of today’s column about maturity. I don’t want to forget it so here is the definition of maturity as penned by Dear Abby’s mother.

This is maturity: to be able to stick with a job until it’s finished; to do one’s duty without being supervised; to be able to carry money without spending it; and to be able to bear an injustice without wanting to get even.
