The Boy Who Wouldn't Grow Up

[Thomas and] Florence Hardy, The Early Life of Thomas Hardy, 1840-1891 (New York: The Macmillan Co., 1928), pp. 19-20:
Reflecting on his experiences of the world so far as he had got, he came to the conclusion that he did not wish to grow up. Other boys were always talking of when they would be men; he did not want at all to be a man, or to possess things, but to remain as he was, in the same spot, and to know no more people than he already knew (about half a dozen).
