Quote #10

And he began to see the truth, that Ged had neither lost nor won but, naming the shadow of his death with his own name, had made himself whole: a man: who, knowing his whole true self, cannot be used or possessed by any power other than himself, (10.73)

This may be one of the best descriptions of coming of age we've ever read. It's not about growing older (because older doesn't necessarily mean smarter), and it's not about going through terrible experiences. Instead, in this book, it seems like Ged has come of age when he accepts his shadow.
