Seneca on Manful Thoughts

You remember the delight of throwing aside the boy’s clothes, and putting on the manly toga. Expect yet more joy from putting off a childish mind, and being enrolled by philosophy as a man.”

-Seneca, Epistles, XLV, Sec. 1

One could say that this transition is when a man no longer only looks inward and thinks on the concerns of himself. A child is dependent and has a scarcity mentality. A man sees the world as a web of people who he is responsible for and has an abundance mentality.

You might have tried some of these but not been able to find what you were looking or found that the returns they found were not relevant to the subject for which you were searching.
