"You're not friends because you sit with each other at lunch or talk on the phone. You're best friends because when she smiles, a grin forces itself across your face, no matter how mad you are. When she cries, you instantly feel her pain and want to cry with her. When you look her in the eye, you know there is nobody you could ever trust more, regardless of how many broken hearts you've had. That's what it means to be best friends."

God gave you that personality. Respect it and cherish it just like you would your most important belonging.

Author Unknown --- Submitted by Ashika K., Age 16 --- Nevada
This quote has helped my life in an important way... It has made me realize that if you want to tell someone that you love them, then go ahead, no matter what moment in time it is, just go ahead and say it... I have regretted not saying it to my aunty, and now that she is not in our lives anymore, it has made me feel like I lost out on something very special.

A funny little word that can change your world
Only if you let it

We all know what it is
We all have it

Fear of being different
Fear of rejection
Fear of becoming who you are
Fear of yourself
Fear of doing what you can do
Fear of losing
Fear of letting people down
Fear of giving up
Fear of taking a chance

So, don't let that funny little word, change your world
Don't let fear take a hold of you
Take a hold of fear!"
Written in 2006 by Carissa S., Age 14 --- Tennessee
This is a poem I wrote from past experiences! It helped me through some tough times and I hope it helps others!

"If you never try, you will never get."
Written in 2006 by Mark R., Age 18 --- United Kingdom
This is what has got me through college with good grades and motivated me to go out and find a fulltime job rather then go to uni. I got the first job I applied for by following this motto. Remember: if you don't try, you will always wonder. So take the wonder out, get what you want and move on with it - you'll achieve more then you could imagine.

"Life requires us to live daily loving, laughing, learning, leaping, falling, failing and then getting back up to do it all over again until we can fall one step further down our path. All we need to do is get back up each time with love in our hearts, laughter on our faces, and learning in our minds."
Written in 2006 by Jennifer T., Age 16 --- Maryland
This is a thought I've had and not quite known how to put it for a while; sometimes you just have to sit and think.
