“Growing up means learning what life is...

When you're little, you have a set of ideals, 
standards, criteria, plans, outlooks, 
and you think that you have to sit around 
and wait for them to happen to you 
and then life will work. 
Life isn't like that, for anybody; 
you can't fall in love with a standard, 
you have to fall in love with a person. 
You can't live in a criteria, 
you have to live your life. 
You can't wait for your plans to materialize, 
because they may never materialize the way you think they will. 
You can't wait to watch your ideals and standards walk up to you, 
because you can't know what's yours 
until you have it. 
I always say, always take the first chance in case you never get a second one, 
but growing up takes that even one step further, 
growing up means that you have to hold on to what you have, when you have it, 
because what you have - that's yours - 
and all the ideals and criteria 
you have set in your head, 
those aren't yours, because those haven't happened to you.”
