Famous lines and quotations about high school students and teens...

Quotes about Teenagers “People often say that this or that person has not yet found himself. But the self is not something one finds, it is something one creates.”

--Thomas Szasz

Quotes about Teenagers “When adults say, 'Teenagers think they are invincible' with that sly, stupid smile on their faces, they don't know how right they are. We need never be hopeless, because we can never be irreparably broken. We think that we are invincible because we are. We cannot be born, and we cannot die. Like all energy, we can only change shapes and sizes and manifestations. They forget that when they get old. They get scared of losing and failing. But that part of us greater than the sum of our parts cannot begin and cannot end, and so it cannot fail.”

--John Green, Looking for Alaska
