" Dream BIG and make it real."
Author Unknown --- Submitted by Larissa N., Age 13 --- Indonesia
As people grow older, they seem to be more realistic sometimes even too realistic. They base everything on what is possible to happen not seeing the possibility in impossible things. As a teen we should dream big, dream things that seem impossible, but with God anything is possible. Start dreaming.

It keeps me going and with it, I can achieve anything. I used to think all this "listen to your heart" was rubbish. But it works for me.

I always think of this when I think a problem I have is the end of the world. God won't give us a problem he knew we couldn't handle.

" If someone breaks your heart, don't mourn over them like they're dead. It's stupid. Instead look at it as an opportunity to become something better than a boyfriend or girlfriend. Become their friend. Friends last longer, have more memories, and have more trust. What more could you ask for?"

" The moment you think of giving up, think of the reason why you held so long. DO OR DIE is an old saying; DO BEFORE YOU DIE is the new one."
Author Unknown --- Submitted by Devika R., Age 17 --- India
I selected this because I was getting fed up of my laziness, which was indirectly affecting my TARGET for which I had worked so long. So just think once... somewhere your short term laziness or comfort is affecting your passion.

My best friend backstabbed me to the point it wasn't believable anymore. She promised to always be there for me, now she's not. I was strong enough to tell her this quote.

Written in 2007 by Jonathan L., Age 16 --- Hawaii
This quote advises that people should learn from the past by analyzing history and learning from the past's mistakes. Cherish the present because it goes by too fast. I work toward tomorrow. Have a goal for your future to keep for looking forward tomorrow, while your working toward tomorrow.

" Honesty may not bring you what you want, but it can begin a path for you to be a better person."
Written in 2006 by J. W., Age 13 --- Tennessee
I came up with this quote because I read many quotes about how honesty can positively change everything in your life (and it can), but sometimes, it just won't work. This quote is a revision that I feel apply to all situations.

" We are what we are by the way we think and act."
Written in 2007 by Isaac Agbemafle
I wrote this after an examination I took. Though I did not fail, I did not like the marks I got. It was because I thought the way everyone thought - that it was difficult and the results reflected it.
