Always desire to learn something useful.
Wherever you are - be all there.
Expect problems and eat them for breakfast.
Problems are not stop signs, they are guidelines.
If you're going through hell, keep going.
The most effective way to do it, is to do it.
Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible.
Things do not happen. Things are made to happen.
If you've got a talent, protect it.
Go for it now. The future is promised to no one.
Your modern teenager is not about to listen to advice from an old person, defined as a person who remembers when there was no Velcro.
You have teenagers thinking they're going to make millions as NBA stars when that's not realistic for even 1 percent of them. Becoming a scientist or engineer is.
Growing up, I've enjoyed hunting with my father.
My teenage years were exactly what they were supposed to be. Everybody has their own path. It's laid out for you. It's just up to you to walk it.
Growing up, I didn't have a lot of toys, and personal entertainment depended on individual ingenuity and imagination - think up a story and go live it for an afternoon.
I wanted to be with the kind of people I'd grown up with, but you can't go back to them and be one of them again, no matter how hard you try.
So many people try to grow up too fast, and it's not fun! You should stay a kid as long as possible!
A fairly bright boy is far more intelligent and far better company than the average adult.
I'm a teenager, but I'm independent - I have my own apartment, I have my own life. And I think I have learned more than any of those teenagers have in school. I learned to be responsible, leaving my family and coming here alone.
My kids idea of a hard life is to live in a house with only one phone.
