Do not be too timid and squeamish about your actions. All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make the better. What if they are a little course, and you may get your coat soiled or torn? What if you do fail, and get fairly rolled in the dirt once or twice. Up again, you shall never be so afraid of a tumble.
– Ralph Waldo Emerson

Nina points out that most current research indicates that personality doesn’t really change over a lifetime, and is formed by the time someone is around 18-21 years of age.
