All through life we are going to have struggles. There's no getting past that. But it's the way that we handle ourselves through the struggles that determines how we are going are going to live our lives. So think positive!

" Never under estimate yourself. You have the ability to do everything. Never believe you have to stay within limits; you have the power to do everything. All you need is just to try once."
Written in 2010 by Manjot Kaur
I chose this because it happened to me. I was always too afraid to face people and my teacher of social science said to me that words cross the limits in which you always stay. Just try and you can do everything. I did try and I gave a speech in front of my whole school and got the number 1 position in the Best Speech Competition. So I hope you can benefit from what I learned.

" I would rather die being myself than being something I'm not."
Written in 2010 by Jovan P., Age 14 --- New Jersey
I chose to write this quotation because many people, but mostly teens, get killed for being something they're not such as joining the game and doing unnecessary things. I would rather die knowing that I've accomplished a goal and that my name is left behind as a person who made something of themselves.

" What others think about you is none of your business."
Author Unknown --- Submitted by Avijeet M., Age 16 --- India
Why should we care what others think about our work, and us if we know we are right? We should reply to people who discourage us by our work, not by our tongue.

" Those who are always willing to accept defeat and sadness acquire happiness. If one does not want sadness to come to them, maybe then they should ask themselves whom they want the sadness to go to?"
Written in 2010 by Sphume Z., Age 18 --- South Africa
I wrote this not because I never get sad myself but because I've learnt that sometimes one needs to be sad in order to gain happiness. This also made me realize that accepting sadness is in fact the best thing that one can do for oneself.

" Misery is not company or a battle scar. It is a teacher. Your homework: learn from it."
Written in 2010 by L.C. N., Age 16 --- California
People tend to treat misery as a right to respect or suffer. When in reality, it is there to separate the good and bad in our lives, and increase our appreciation.
