Jess C. Scott
“I suppose it’s not a social norm, and not a manly thing to do — to feel, discuss feelings. So that’s what I’m giving the finger to. Social norms and stuff…what good are social norms, really? I think all they do is project a limited and harmful image of people. It thus impedes a broader social acceptance of what someone, or a group of people, might actually be like.”
Jess C. Scott, New Order

Chad Sugg
“Enjoy your youth.
You'll never be younger than
you are at this very moment.”
Chad Sugg

Markus Zusak
“He was waving. "Saukerl," she laughed, and as she held up her hand, she knew completely that he was simultaneously calling her a Saumensch. I think that's as close to love as eleven-year-olds can get.”
Markus Zusak, The Book Thief

Hubert Selby Jr.
“The voice so filled with nostalgia that you could almost see the memories floating through the blue smoke, memories not only of music and joy and youth, but perhaps, of dreams. They listened to the music, each hearing it in his own way, feeling relaxed and a part of the music, a part of each other, and almost a part of the world. ”
Hubert Selby Jr., Requiem for a Dream

Oscar Wilde
“The secret of remaining young is never to have an emotion that is unbecoming.”
Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray

Edgar Allan Poe
“In beauty of face no maiden ever equaled her. It was the radiance of an opium-dream - an airy and spirit-lifting vision more wildly divine than the fantasies which hovered about the slumbering souls of the daughters of Delos.”
Edgar Allan Poe, Ligeia

Nikki Sixx
“You know, it's pretty easy reading this book to see why I was angry and confused for all those years. I lived my life being told different stories: some true, some lies and I still don't know which is which. Children are born innocent. At birth we are very much like a new hard drive - no viruses, no bad information, no crap that's been downloaded into it yet. It's what we feed into that hard drive, or in my case "head drive" that starts the corruption of the files.”
Nikki Sixx, The Heroin Diaries: A Year In The Life Of A Shattered Rock Star

David Levithan
“Life goes on. Get over it. You're still young. It'll get better. Blah, Blah, Blah”
David Levithan, Marly's Ghost

Thomas S. Monson
“Some are young people who don't know who they are, what they can be or even want to be. They are afraid, but they don't know of what. They are angry, but they don't know at whom. They are rejected and they don't know why. All they want is to be somebody. ”
Thomas S. Monson, Pathways To Perfection: Discourses Of Thomas S. Monson

Eric Bogosian
“It's my duty as a human being to be pissed off”
Eric Bogosian, subUrbia

Dave Eggers

Cassandra Clare
“Being sixteen forever sounded good until you really thought about it. Then it didn't seem like such a great prospect.”
Cassandra Clare, City of Fallen Angels

Criss Jami
“A young outcast will often feel that there is something wrong with himself, but as he gets older, grows more confident in who he is, he will adapt, he will begin to feel that there is something wrong with everyone else.”
Criss Jami

Arthur C. Clarke
“It must be wonderful to be seventeen, and to know everything.”
Arthur C. Clarke, 2010: Odyssey Two

Daphne du Maurier
“I am glad it cannot happen twice, the fever of first love. For it is a fever, and a burden, too, whatever the poets may say. They are not brave, the days when we are twenty-one. They are full of little cowardices, little fears without foundation, and one is so easily bruised, so swiftly wounded, one falls to the first barbed word. To-day, wrapped in the complacent armour of approaching middle age, the infinitesimal pricks of day by day brush one but lightly and are soon forgotten, but then--how a careless word would linger, becoming a fiery stigma, and how a look, a glance over a shoulder, branded themselves as things eternal. A denial heralded the thrice crowing of a cock, and an insincerity was like the kiss of Judas. The adult mind can lie with untroubled conscience and a gay composure, but in those days even a small deception scoured the tongue, lashing one against the stake itself.”
Daphne du Maurier, Rebecca

Poppy Z. Brite
“There were books about how to be gay; he'd seen them in stores and libraries. Some of them even had diagrams. But there weren't any diagrams about how to fall in love with your best friend and not fuck everything up.”
Poppy Z. Brite, The Value of X

Neil Gaiman
“That's the trouble with you young people. You think because you ain't been here long, you know everything. In my life I already forgot more than you ever know.”
Neil Gaiman, Anansi Boys

Maya Angelou
“I'm young as morning
and fresh as dew.
Everybody loves me
and so do you.”
Maya Angelou, I Shall Not Be Moved

Robert F. Kennedy
“This world demands the qualities of youth; not a time of life but a state of mind, a temper of the will, a quality of the imagination, a predominance of courage over timidity, of the appetite for adventure over the life of ease.”
Robert F. Kennedy

Bernhard Schlink
“Does everyone feel this way? When I was young, I was perpetually overconfident or insecure. Either I felt completely useless, unattractive, and worthless, or that I was pretty much a success, and everything I did was bound to succeed. When I was confident, I could overcome the hardest challenges. But all it took was the smallest setback for me to be sure that I was utterly worthless. Regaining my self-confidence had nothing to do with success...whether I experienced it as a failure or triumph was utterly dependent on my mood.”
Bernhard Schlink, The Reader

Criss Jami
“There's nothing more contagious than the laughter of young children; it doesn't even have to matter what they're laughing about.”
Criss Jami

Brett Harris
“The beauty of collaboration between older and younger generations is that we combine strength with wisdom—a surefire way to accomplish more for the glory of God.”
Brett Harris

Ralph Waldo Emerson
“In the woods too, a man casts off his years, as the snake his slough, and at what period soever of life, is always a child. In the woods, is perpetual youth.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson, Nature and Selected Essays

Russell Brand
“Some people were just getting on with their lives, chatting, being young. It simply wouldn't do.”
Russell Brand

Confucius
“A youth is to be regarded with respect. How do we know that his future will not be equal to our present?”
Confucius, The Life and Wisdom of Confucius

E. Lockhart
“The island is ours. Here, in some way, we are young forever.”
E. Lockhart, We Were Liars

Alfred Tennyson
“But thy strong Hours indignant work’d their wills,
And beat me down and marr’d and wasted me,
And tho’ they could not end me, left me maim’d
To dwell in presence of immortal youth,
Immortal age beside immortal youth,
And all I was, in ashes.
- Tithonus”
Alfred Tennyson

Jarod Kintz
“The first door in the hall leads to youth, the second door leads to middle age, and the third door leads to the bathroom. But knock first, because I think grandpa’s in there. 
”
Jarod Kintz, This Book Has No Title
