When I was a boy, adulthood seemed an inaccessible condition--a mixture of unattainable competences and unenviable anxieties (pensions, dentures, chiropodists); and yet it arrived, though it did not feel from within how it looked from without. Nor did it seem like an achievement. (Julian Barnes, Nothing To Be Frightened Of, Knopf 2008, p.186)
