Adult- An adult is person who is physically, emotionally and socially mature, able to take responsibility for themself and to care for others. The ego of Mature Adults extends beyond the skin to concern for others and for the world they live in. An Adult Bookshop contains the treasures of our civilisation. An Immature Adult Bookshop does not.

"Never forget that adlets will soon be adlings with votes and drivers' licences." He's a Growing-Up, nearly a Grown-Up.
