Favorite Becoming An Adult Quotes

1. "Becoming an adult means leaving the world of your parents and starting to make your way toward the future that you will share with your peers."
Author: Alison Gopnik
2. "I've heard this before from people: early 20s kind of screws with your head a little bit because you're transitioning into adulthood and actually becoming an adult with responsibilities and paying bills. So all of a sudden, it's like you're responsible now."
Author: Dan Byrd
3. "I am glad it cannot happen twice, the fever of first love. For it is a fever, and a burden, too, whatever the poets may say. They are not brave, the days when we are twenty-one. They are full of little cowardices, little fears without foundation, and one is so easily bruised, so swiftly wounded, one falls to the first barbed word. To-day, wrapped in the complacent armour of approaching middle age, the infinitesimal pricks of day by day brush one but lightly and are soon forgotten, but then--how a careless word would linger, becoming a fiery stigma, and how a look, a glance over a shoulder, branded themselves as things eternal. A denial heralded the thrice crowing of a cock, and an insincerity was like the kiss of Judas. The adult mind can lie with untroubled conscience and a gay composure, but in those days even a small deception scoured the tongue, lashing one against the stake itself."
Author: Daphne Du Maurier
4. "I think my guideline has been to find things that inspire me. And as long as I stick to that, I don't think I'll have any problems crossing over to becoming an adult actress."

6. "When you are a kid you have your own language, and unlike French or Spanish or whatever you start learning in fourth grade, this one you are born with, and eventually lose...Kids think with their brains cracked wide open; becoming an adult...is only a slow sewing it shut."
Author: Jodi Picoult
7. "Kids think with their brains cracked wide open; becoming an adult, I've decided, is only a slow sewing shut."

8. "I think thinking about becoming an adult, and having to face up to your problems and face up to your insecurities, is difficult for everybody."
Author: Mary Elizabeth Winstead
9. "When you are sixteen you do not know what your parents know, or much of what they understand, and less of what's in their hearts. This can save you from becoming an adult too early, save your life from becoming only theirs lived over again--which is a loss. But to shield yourself--as I didn't do--seems to be an even greater error, since what's lost is the truth of your parents' life and what you should think about it, and beyond that, how you should estimate the world you are about to live in."
Author: Richard Ford

Today's Quote

În tara noastra, totul e posibil. Mahalaua e eligibila, grotescul e rentabil. Se poate face cariera pe baza de tupeu, minciuna, bîzdîc si fermentatie viscerala. Lumea se distreaza. ‘Baietii rai' se cauta prin alte cotloane. De pilda, printre intelectuali. Intelectualii sînt o adunatura de profitori, golani, fascisti, fii de nomenclaturisti, pupincuristi, antieuropeni sau, din contra, vînduti strainilor. Acolo e buba! În preajma lui Socrate, care l-a corupt pe Platon, care l-a corupt pe Aristotel, care l-a corupt pe Alexandru cel Mare, care ne-a corupt pe toti."
Author: Andrei Ple?u
