Motivational Teen Quotes

I came across these motivational quotes for teens that I found interesting.  It is taken from a passage in Charles J. Sykes' book called "Dumbing Down our Kids".  It teaches young ones to work hard in life in order to become successful and appreciate their parents because they have made many sacrifices in life.

“Life is not fair...get used to it.” Quotes for Teens

“The world won't care about your self-esteem. The world will expect you to accomplish something BEFORE you feel good about yourself.” Quotes for Teens

“You will NOT make 40 thousand dollars a year right out of high school. You won't be a vice-president with a car phone, until you earn both.” Quotes for Teens

 “If you think your teacher is tough, wait till you get a boss. He doesn't have tenure.” Quotes for Teens

“Flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity. Your grandparents had a different word for burger flipping-they called it opportunity.” Quotes for Teens

 “If you mess up, it's not your parents' fault, so don't whine about your mistakes, learn from them.” Quotes for Teens

“Before you were born, your parents weren't as boring as they are now. They got that way from paying your bills, cleaning your clothes and listening to you talk about how cool you are. So before you save the rain forest from the parasites of your parents' generation, try delousing the closet in your own room.” Quotes for Teens

“Your school may have done away with winners and losers but life has not. In some schools they have abolished failing grades and they'll give you as many times as you want to get the right answer. This doesn't bear the slightest resemblance to ANYTHING in real life.” Quotes for Teens

“Life is not divided into semesters. You don't get summers off and very few employers are interested in helping you find yourself. You have to do that on your own time.” Quotes for Teens

“Television is NOT real life. In real life people actually have to leave the coffee shop and go to jobs.” Quotes for Teens

“Be nice to nerds. Chances are you'll end up working for one.” Quotes for Teens
