As truly as the caterpillar takes on wings and the tadpole lungs and limbs, of which neither had any trace before, the boy takes on not only habits and instincts and ways of getting on in the world, but actual new structure as well. Boyhood begins with the second set of teeth; it ends with the advent of the beard and a new set of enzymes in the blood. Neither boy nor grub nor pollywog passes on to the next stage of his existence by any mere enlargement.
