"No matter what anyone has told you, I know the truth. You are perfect in all your imperfections and the things you think are wrong with you, they make you who you are. So there, beautiful, even the worst thing about you - it's beautiful!"
Copyright 2007 Lenneia Patricelli
I wrote it for all the girls who think that they aren't pretty, who want to be like that other girl who also doesn't think she's pretty, for the girls who think "there must be something wrong with me".

"Life's not all bad. Look into somebody's eyes, you'll see that they're a person just like you; they also have good and bad feelings, hopes and dreams."
Author Unknown --- Submitted by Marivic F., Age 18 --- Japan
Just because I'm having a bad day doesn't mean that I'm the only one. Everyone has their own problems as well. So don't wallow in self-pity thinking that someone out there is making your life miserable. We must be strong. What will come, will come and when it does, we just have to face it.

"Life is an obstacle. You can either try to find your way out or you can give up and be lost."
Written in 2007 by Brittany S., Age 17 --- Virginia
I wrote this because of someone in my life that reminds me how much I need to do better for myself than end up like them and look lost and depressed.

"Forget about the past and think about your future. Always remember, the past does create who you are but so can your future...if you truly believe! If you believe, set a goal, you can succeed!"
Written in 2007 by Tiana V., Age 14 --- NSW, Australia
I love looking at quotes and I find this website a really inspiring website! This made me think of my mistakes in the past, bad marks at school, and I know I can do better if I truly believe, really set goals and succeed. To all you out there...YOU CAN SUCCEED!! Just set your goal and work your heart out on it!

"You make mistakes so you can learn from them. You make mistakes to show that life's not perfect; you make them so you can live life. Without mistakes, the world would be unexciting, there wouldn't be any drama, and it would be boring."

Author Unknown --- Submitted by Melissa L., Age 17 --- Canada
I found this on the net a few months ago and after I read it, it really helped my situation. Hope it can help someone as much as its helped me:)

"You can't undo what you have already done. Bt the next time you are thinking about doing something, think twice and think back and ask yourself if it's what you really want."
Written in 2007 by Nancy B., Age 16 --- North Carolina
I chose this because I did something that I wish I wouldn't have done. I want to just take it all back and make it to where I didn't do it, but I can't. I can though, the next time, think first and tell myself how I feel now and tell myself that I am just going to feel the same way if I do it again.

"Read. Read as much as you can. We are only given one life to live on this Earth and by reading you get to live another life through the eyes of another."
Chesley Howard --- Submitted by Renee D., Age 15 --- Washington
My great grandpa was Chesley Howard... he told me this when I was 3 years old just before he died. I had forgotten it completely until the other day when I was reading a story he wrote called, "The Adventures Of Willie Jones". It's not published so that is my goal... and to spread this quote to other people so that they can pass it on.

"Only you can decide the reality that lies within the Imagination."
Harry Lawrence --- Submitted by Bonnie L., Age 15 --- New York
This quote was given to me from my dad. I was writing a short story for school that I named "The Truth Behind Fiction". When I asked him what he thought the truth behind fiction was, this is what he said and I fully agree with him. So...you decide.

"Think of that feeling you get when you have not worked at all at something and got praised for it. Compare it to the feeling you get when you have worked hard at something and got praised for it. Feel the difference?"
Based on a saying from Fiona --- Submitted by Jamie O., Age 17
A friend of mine told me this on the school bus once after I told her I cheated my way out of a homework task. In life, the true rewards are great and real when you deserve to earn such a reward. Work hard at all you do, no matter how insignificant, and the rewards will surprise you.

"When life hits you at its hardest, don't give up. Keep being strong. It'll be worth it in the end."
Written in 2007 by Jennifer A., Age 14 --- Indiana
I made this one up on my own. I selected it because I have been through some rocky roads at times. Sometimes I felt like giving up, but I knew if I kept being strong, it would be worth it.

"Concern yourself not with the present, for the present will soon be the past. But focus on the future and what you can do to make it brighter."
Author Unknown --- Submitted by Cindy D., Age 16 --- Kentucky
Today a friend was feeling really down and I knew exactly what he was going through. I sent him an email and this was the first thing to pop into my head. To tell you the truth, I'm not sure if someone else said it and I just remembered it, or if it is a creation from my own mind.

"Although you hurt me, although you made me cry, although I begged you not to leave, I continue to love you and care for you. I hate loving you and it kills me inside, but, despite all the tears, sufferings, bickering and cries, I overcame your torture and here I am now, better than ever, all because I learned to move on."
Written in 2007 by Kathy G., Age 17 --- New Jersey
I decided to write this quote because of a personal heartbreak I went through -he cheated on me, lied to me, hurt me, and broke many promises. I thought I could never let go of him, despite everything, considering he was my first love. But now, after 9 months of being separated, I learned not just to forgive, but to let go and learn from it all and grow up to be stronger and better =]

Raindrops will fall on an empty street
And you'll listen to the steady beat
And at that moment
You'll hear peace
Author Unknown --- Submitted by Devon B., Age 13 --- Nevada
Don't move too fast, pace yourself. Take the time to stop and listen to the rain fall.

"The whole world revolves around impression; the only TRUE impression you can make is being true to yourself."
Copyright 2007 Dannielle Mechling
I wrote this because I was just so tired of seeing all the people acting, talking, thinking and doing exactly the same as another person. I mean, whatever happened to individuality? I guess the reason why I'm writing this is to bring it back in style. I hope this helps other teens to understand that they have to be themselves. People like one of a kind and original people.

"What makes us different makes us special."
Author Unknown --- Submitted by Izumi T., Age 14 --- Singapore
It's my favorite and I think it's absolutely true. If everyone has the same popular branded bag, while you, on the other hand, have a un-branded bag, it doesn't make you odd. It shows you are the special one. Don't you think so?
