Famous quotes containing the word immature:

    Her little loose hands, and dropping Victorian shoulders.
    And then her great weight below the waist, her vast pale belly
    With a thin young yellow little paw hanging out, and straggle of a
    long thin ear, like ribbon,
    Like a funny trimming to the middle of her belly, thin little dangle
    of an immature paw, and one thin ear.
    —D.H. (David Herbert)

    To an immature nature essentially honest and humane, forewarning intimations of subtler danger from one’s kind come tardily if at all.
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)
