Immature love says: "I love you because I need you." Mature love says: "I need you because I love you."Erich Fromm
I believe there is no part of our lives, our adult as well as child life, when we're not fantasizing, but we prefer to relegate fantasy to children, as though it were some tomfoolery only fit for the Immature minds of the young. Children do live in fantasy and reality; they move back and forth very easily in a way we no longer remember how to do.maurice sendak
All instincts Immature, All purposes unsure, That weighed not as his work, yet swelled the man's amount: Thoughts hardly to be packed Into a narrow act, Fancies that broke through language and escaped; All I could never be, All, men ignored in me, This, I was worth to God, whose wheel the pitcher shaped.Robert Browning
Ideas are somewhat like babies--they are born small, Immature, and shapeless. They are promise rather than fulfillment. In the innovative company executives do not say, "This is a damn-fool idea."
