Racism is a very bad thing. I would know. Richard Nixon said this during a time when people were judged because of their skin color and their race. People need to realize that it's what inside that counts.

This is a quote that I wrote just before September 11, 2001 occurred. I, being from Iraq, was devastated and this is the quote that I think of every morning when I wake up. I'm hoping that one day someone would listen....maybe one day someone will understand....and combined we would have peace.

"Happiness is not a state of being, but a simple choice."
Author Unknown --- Submitted by Jessica M., Age 14 --- Texas
I have really learned about happiness a lot lately and to truly find in yourself who you are. I think this would help teens out especially since we aren't always happy all the time. So, I think this would help teen really recognize and understand what happiness really is.

"Time waits for no one. Its workings are a mystery like the human mind and why it waits for the exact moment to do anything. It's never the wrong time to do the right thing. Don't waste the time you are given, use every minute to your advantage, you never know which one could be your last."
Author Unknown --- Submitted by Jennifer W., Age 18 --- Washington
I've been thinking a lot about the idea of time lately. A close friend of mine and I have had horrible timing all our lives and it's occurred to me that it's never wise to wait for the opportune moment, often times it never comes. Do what you have to do or say what you have to say NOW, before it's too late and you regret it for the rest of your life. Don't wait for time; it won't cooperate.

"If you are too afraid to stand up to someone, who thinks they are better than you, no one will ever remember your name."

It means if you're too afraid to try something hard, then you're too afraid to try life - don't be.

"Life is an improvisation."
Author Unknown --- Submitted by Natasha L., Age 14 --- United Kingdom
In Drama, I used to hate doing improvisations on the spot but then it occurred to me that your whole life is an improvisation. No one can give you a script or tell you what to do, it's all up to you to make something of your life.

"A promise is always a promise. They ask you to not tell anyone - you tell someone anyway and I guess it's okay until that person finds out you told, but it's then that you lose your trust, your friend and your dignity. If you can't keep it don't take it."

Never take a promise you can't keep, just don't take it in the first place.
