Moore pens foreword to book about maturity
In his foreword, Moore confesses:
"May I say that I have a certain affection for my neurotic tendencies. They make me who I am as much as any gifts or talents I may have. I feel humbled reading Paul’s book, because I realize how difficult it has been to mature as a person. I’m almost seventy, but inwardly I’m forty-two. That’s the age I feel myself to be. I’m surprised on the street when an old man talks to me as though we share something in common. How could that be? I’m forty-two.Read Moore's foreword and Dunion's introduction to Dare to Grow Up on Dunion's site.

Of course, Paul doesn’t mean just getting older. He’s talking about being mature enough to handle boundaries, to occupy a decent psychological geography, and to know the difference between moral positioning and ethical engagement. These are real achievements. I would call them soul talents and acquisitions."
