Teen Quotes

Updated on March 1, 2014

Being a teenager is a difficult time in a young person's life. The age in which you are old enough to start making your own life decisions, yet still not quite old enough to make it on your own, leaving you to abide by the house rules.

One thing that adults sometimes fail to remember is how those times were for them. The excitement and anxiety felt before that first real kiss, the first time , and leaving home for the first time. Those times are very real for each and every human at some point in their lives, less those who are not fortunate enough to live to be an adult.

Teenagers are a very expressive group of people, yet sometimes find it hard to put into words exactly how they feel. Teen Quotes sayings and quotations have been compiled with the young adult in mind. Enjoy.

~ Success: To laugh often and much, to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children, to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends, to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others, to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded! ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
