“The secret message communicated to most young people today by the society around them is that they are not needed, that the society will run itself quite nicely until they - at some distant point in the future - will take over the reigns. Yet the fact is that the society is not running itself nicely... because the rest of us need all the energy, brains, imagination and talent that young people can bring to bear down on our difficulties. For society to attempt to solve its desperate problems without the full participation of even very young people is imbecile.”
Alvin Toffler

“Millions of young people are shifting from one side to the other. They are like unguided missiles filled with energy and ambition and yet somehow not “fitting in.” Peer pressure leads them astray . . . [and] in thousands of churches they are led astray theologically.”

Billy Graham
“There is a great identity crisis among students today. Who am I? What is the purpose of life? Where did I come from? Where am I going?

They must believe in something to find fulfillment in their lives.”
Billy Graham, Billy Graham in Quotes

Billy Graham, Billy Graham in Quotes

Billy Graham, Billy Graham in Quotes

Billy Graham
“I come in contact with mixed-up people, young men and women caught in the anguish of their own unpreparedness, intellectuals who have been seduced by false science, and rich men held in the grip of insecurity. They have no commitment to any goal. They lack an anchorage for their real self. And I long to take every one of them by the hand and lead them into the presence of the One who said, “Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest” [Matthew 11:28 KJV].”
Billy Graham, Billy Graham in Quotes

Oscar Wilde
“The only people to whose opinions I listen now with any respect are people much younger than myself. They seem in front of me. Life has revealed to them her latest wonder.”

Paolo Giordano
“Soms krijg ik de indruk dat wij jonge mensen, die in het domein van strikte coherentie zijn opgevoed, binnen de grenzen van het puur wetenschappelijke denken, het moeilijker hebben dan anderen: we zien te goed hoeveel fouten er altijd maar weer worden gemaakt in de hele wereld, door de geschiedenis, de generaties, de individuen heen, maar dat we het zien betekent nog niet dat we er iets aan kunnen doen.”
Paolo Giordano
