adjective

Unusually mature or advanced in development, especially in mental aptitude; usually in reference to children.

What might be taken for a precocious genius is the genius of childhood. When the child grows up, it disappears without a trace. It may happen that this boy will become a real painter some day, or even a great painter. But then he will have to begin everything again, from zero.

—Pablo Picasso Quoted in Picasso and Company by Gyula Brassaï (1966)
