Author Unknown --- Submitted by Carli A., Age 14 --- Nebraska
This quote was told to me when I talked to one of my best friends who is a senior in high-school. I have always talked to him about my tough situations because this kid knows that what he is talking about! This is one of the things he has told me time and time again that just has always stuck with me! I pray that you too find or already have a person in your life like this that is just there for whenever you just need to talk.

"Impossible is a dare, a dare that you must grab hold of with both hands and give it your best shot. I have and I have accomplished my goal. Even though it's over and done with, there are always more dares that await me with which I also must put my heart and soul into. Look forward, acknowledge your accomplishments but don't become cocky and try your best as dwelling on the past gets you nowhere but yesterday."

Written in 2004 by T.H., Age 13 --- Alberta, Canada
I came up with this when I had just finished having an argument with some of my relatives over my dreams in life. They think I shouldn't get my hopes up (I want to be in the 2012 Summer Olympic Games as a Taekwondo competitor) and I should set my sights on something realistic, like an office job.
