Carrie Hope Fletcher
Children born to teens have less supportive and stimulating environments, poorer health, lower cognitive development, and worse educational outcomes. Children of teen mothers are at increased risk of being in foster care and becoming teen parents themselves, thereby repeating the cycle.
Jane Fonda
I was considered chubby as a teen.
Roger Moore
I grew up watching ‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer’ and used to dream that I would grow up to be just like her. In a way, ‘Teen Wolf’ has a lot of those kinds of characters. We’re just kids by day, and yet we’re trying to fight demons and werewolves and bad people and save people that we love.

Johnny Depp
I actually hope people don’t react to ‘Impossible’ in a way where they think it’s terribly retro. The plot needed to do what it needed to do.

Nancy Werlin
I take mentoring very seriously and I am on the board of an organization called Girls Write Now, where we match teen girls and writing mentors because it changes their lives.

Troian Bellisario
One of the things that defines YA is a really strong narrative. Adults love YA because, at the end of the day, they’re good stories and page-turners. The other element is emotion. The teen years are a very emotional and intense time, and I think it’s a time we that we can all relate to and remember.
Rebecca Serle
‘Pretty Little Liars,’ you know, it’s a teen show that grew to be something bigger. I think you had girls from ages 7 to, like, 20 watching the show, and that was the predominant audience. Then it grew to be for girls, boys, men, women, people who are 7 to 35. I think that’s crazy.
Aeriel Miranda

Meagan Tandy

Beth Ditto

That is, in middle age I moved to a seaside town and got into a right barney with the local powers-that-be.
Julie Burchill
Fifth grade was when I first heard 'Smells Like Teen Sp

Fifth grade was when I first heard ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit;’ it was the energy, and his voice. I liked 311 and Sublime, too, though that might have been a little after that.
Ty Dolla Sign
The first time I got pregnant, I was a young girl – I was 17 years old. Although I knew right away that I wanted to keep my child, being a pregnant teen was an extremely scary experience for me. Luckily, my family and friends were very supportive and were there for me every step of the way.
Paula Garces
Once a teen has been identified as part of the ‘target market,’ he knows he’s done for. The object of the game is to confound the marketers, and keep one’s own, authentic culture from showing up at the shopping mall as a prepackaged corporate product.
Douglas Rushkoff
‘Teen Spirit’ is a celebration of the power that music can deliver to the cinematic experience.
Max Minghella

Erin O’Connor
I found my niche as a character actor, and I’ve never felt like a movie star or teen idol and never wanted to.
Vincent D’Onofrio
Youth comes but once in a lifetime.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
I feel really honored to be part of The #seetherealme campaign. It’s really amazing, as it helps many teen girls who are struggling. It helps them to find themselves and be true to who they are.
Jazz Jennings
I did work at a mall in college – I think retail/customer service is just one of the most hideous jobs in the world. So I always try to be extra nice when I go into a store. But malls are part of our culture, if you watched any teen comedy in the ’80s. it’s clear that malls are where we live!
Jayma Mays
I see it as more of a teenage activity than, you know, she’s only 11, but you know, I think it’s great that she knows so many girls who want to play music. And I see it more as a teen activity than I do as going into music.
Kim Gordon
I was a teen idol and that has a short shelf life.

Amanda Bynes

I’m excited to see a new age of rom-coms, and especially teen romantic comedies, because when I was younger, I was watching ‘Harry Potter’ and ‘Hunger Games’ and stuff like that. I loved those movies, but they are a little bit heavy. We didn’t really get to have the lighthearted love stories.

Dylan Minnette
Research shows that parents are the single biggest infl

John Walters
I think growing up is difficult and it’s a process that I’m always interested in, with kids and adults, they are often on two different universes.
Alice Hoffman
When ‘Teen Vogue’ started out, ‘Teen Vogue’ was an aspirational fashion magazine for fashion lovers.

Lili Reinhart
I don’t think you ever love anything as passionately as you do when you’re a teen. You remember the books you read as a young person your whole life. I feel so lucky to write for young adults.

You’ve got to grow up sometime.
Winona Ryder
We left Egypt when I was seven, and we didn’t return until I was 21. My teen years were divided between the United Kingdom and Saudi Arabia. Up until we left the U.K., it was like your regular teenage years. The one thing I remember is that I couldn’t date. That was one thing my parents made very clear.
Mona Eltahawy
I love the live performances and Las Vegas. I also like making films that are being discovered by another generation. Having been a teen idol of the ’60s is great because you realize you left your generation with a smile and good memories.
Connie Stevens
As a white teen, I was very drawn to hip-hop culture, almost to the point of disappearing in it – there was a sense of having no sense of authenticity except this one that wasn’t mine.
Jess Row

Athiya Shetty

To all those mothers and fathers who are struggling wit

Marian Wright Edelman
As an early teen, soccer is the number one thing that you do – and I wasn’t very good at that.

Virginia Satir
By the time I was a teen, I was an expert at scanning people’s faces, always in search of eyes like mine. I devoured glossy magazines, ever mindful of the language we used to talk about beauty. The sections on how to apply makeup intrigued me most precisely because their audience never included me.

Your modern teenager is not about to listen to advice from an old person, defined as a person who remembers when there was no Velcro.

‘Catcher in the Rye.’ I feel like any brooding teen loves that book.

Milla Jovovich
I progressed through so many different styles of music through my teen years, both as a player and a vocalist, particularly the jazz and pop of the early 20th Century.
Jeff Healey
‘Rookie’ is not your guide to Being a Teen. It is, quite simply, a bunch of writing and art we like and believe in.
Tavi Gevinson
I think I’m trouble-adjacent. I remember hearing once that good girls don’t get caught. I think that’s sort of a lot of what my teen years were like. I skirted the stuff that other kids were doing because the idea of actually getting in trouble was not appealing to me, but I still wanted to have adventures.
Anna Kendrick
Being a teen idol is what I’ve waited for my whole life.
Sarah Michelle Gellar
I used to aspire to being more of a traditional bass player, to be honest. People say I play it like a guitar – and I was a guitar player when I was growing up. I started learning when I was eight, and that’s what I was fascinated with in my teen years.
Justin Chancellor
If you were an alien who came to our bookstores – or browsed our teen magazines – you’d think that only Earth girls who look like Mila Kunis ever got any action.
Rainbow Rowell
As I’ve said many times, the single most oppressed class in America right now is the teenager.
Joe Bob Briggs
Teen authors love to flirt with taboo, to grapple – sensitively – with dark and frightening issues, and there is nothing darker and more frightening than cancer.
Mal Peet
The donning of the ear buds marks the beginning of teen life, when children set off on their own for the passage through adolescence.
Amity Shlaes
I didn’t know what was going to happen with ‘Teen Wolf.’ I was only scheduled to do four episodes for them, but they kept me on, and I was like, ‘Sweet! I’m still employed! That’s awesome!’ And then, they let me know that they were considering having me for the second half of the season.
Adelaide Kane
‘Teen Vogue’ fortunately has proved you can have smart, political, and fashionable content delivered in one place, and you don’t have to choose.
Elaine Welteroth
Being a teen idol or being a heartthrob on all the magazines, with Shaun Cassidy, Leif Garrett, and Scott Baio – it was embarrassing! I never understood it. I mean, why me? I never really got it.
Willie Aames
My first job in TV was hosting this young teen magazine show, and all these high school teenagers showed up from all over Sacramento, California, and they chose four of us to host the show, two boys and two girls. And of the two girls, I was kind of the perky smart one and the other girl was the pretty one.
Lisa Ling
Yes, but I don’t think of the Teen Angel as of an age.
Frankie Avalon
Yeah, I spent my teen years in West Virginia, and when I was a kid, in Louisiana. I definitely have that exposure to two different sorts of rural: the South and Appalachia.
Sam Trammell
Being a teen is past for me. Worrying about the world and my place in it is not.
Ally Condie
Youth is not a time of life; it is a state of mind; it is not a matter of rosy cheeks, red lips and supple knees; it is a matter of the will, quality of the imagination, a vigor of the emotions; it is the freshness of the deep springs of life.
Samuel Ullman
How the original ‘Cosmos’ affected me personally was long-term. I wasn’t born early enough to see the original series, but after getting a hold of it in my teen years, it was one of the driving forces behind my passion for science.
Kyle Hill
‘Awkward’ is a ubiquitous teen word to denote socially unsanctioned behavior. It usually implies first- or secondhand embarrassment when you or a friend step outside the rules. Awkward doesn’t sound overtly judgmental or negative; it’s deliberately vague.
Mary H.K. Choi
I still bump ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit.’ I used to listen to it before all my football games.
Freddie Gibbs
I think, very often, little girls look at these teen television shows and think, ‘I have to have a boyfriend because Blair Waldorf has a boyfriend, and she’s always fighting over boys!’
Madelaine Petsch
In my early teen years, I wanted to become a vet. That was my plan. I worked as a veterinarian’s assistant for a couple of summers.
Dennis Quaid
People don’t know the real me. The hard times I went through are what led me to my life now. I was a mess as a teen! I was kind of wild and really unhappy.
Kristin Cavallari
'Teen Bahuraniyaan' got us many awards. Be it Best Jodi

‘Teen Bahuraniyaan’ got us many awards. Be it Best Jodi, Debut faces or favorite bahu, we bagged many awards. I still watch the show online and keep blushing. I really miss the cast.
Amrapali Gupta
I grew up in a really small town. I had a great friend group and an amazing community of people who were supporting and loving and moving out to L.A. it was really hard to find that. Especially just starting off my teen years.
Olivia Holt
It’s very important to see a black gay teen represented.
Ncuti Gatwa
Teenagers today are more free to be themselves and to accept themselves.
John Knowles
‘Teen Beach Movie’ was a lot of fun because we were in Puerto Rico on an island – you can’t even call it work!
Ross Lynch
The United States has made remarkable progress in reducing both teen pregnancy and racial and ethnic differences, but the reality is, too many American teens are still having babies.
Tom Frieden
The best thing I can say about ‘Teen Wolf Too’ is that it’s the only time anyone ever referred to me as Preston Sturges. Leonard Maltin wrote that ‘Teen Wolf Too’ made ‘Teen Wolf’ look like Preston Sturges. I’ve always prided myself on that.
Jeph Loeb
I have been in teen shows for years, so doing that stuff – kissing – is kind of commonplace and not a big deal. It was way more cool just because it was Meg Ryan.
Adam Brody
I didn’t want to do music. I was very doubtful. I was like, ‘Oh my God. No one wants to hear a teen mom rapper.’
Rico Nasty
I’m definitely of the ‘Harry Potter’-transfigured-me-into-a-reader-and-writer generation. And that’s really all I read throughout my teen years, because I really devoted all my time to writing and reading friends’ fan-fiction.
Adam Silvera
No matter how good you are, at some point your kids are gonna have to create their own independence and think that Mom and Dad aren’t cool, just to establish themselves. That’s what adolescence is about. They’re gonna go through that no matter what.
Eddie Vedder
Keep true to the dreams of your youth.
Friedrich Schiller
Growing up, I’ve enjoyed hunting with my father.

I think as a teen who was thrust into the public eye pretty quickly, I got overwhelmed easily and felt constant pressure to be a certain type of person.
Luke Hemmings
When I was in my teen years and in my 20s and even 60s, it was okay to drop everything and disappear and become a road warrior for all those months. But after a while you get… y’know, one likes to have some home life.
Paul Rodgers
I just fell into the job as a fashion editor at a teen magazine. I was there for two years, and I left there as a senior fashion editor at the age of 25.
Rachel Zoe
I started wearing all black around the time I got into Nirvana. I first heard ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’ when I was about 12, and I remember jumping on my bed, so excited about it.
Natasha Lyonne
I started my career with ‘Teen Diva,’ and that helped me learn anchoring. Fortunately, I got work after the show ended.
Rhea Chakraborty
I’m ashamed to say, but as a teen, there were times when I had to go to the church and get help.
John Rzeznik
Robin McKinley’s ‘The Blue Sword’ was a defining book of my teen years, and I’d love to have more books like that in the world.
Carrie Vaughn
I was a teen star. That’s disgusting enough.
John Cusack
The Teen Challenge Training Center on Pennsylvania farmland houses over 200 men in rehab. Other farms and centers have been birthed out of this ministry all over the world.

I won Miss Teen World, and then a movie rep saw me on the pageant website and thought that I had the perfect image for the role in ‘Madrasapattinam.’
Amy Jackson
Ric Flair was such a huge part of my childhood and teen years. He’s an icon.
Darius Rucker
Every season of ‘Teen Wolf’ was really cool and exciting and unique, but there was just something about the first season story-wise that was, I think, the coolest.
Tyler Posey
Teen fiction should be about teenagers – no matter how many arguments there are about what YA lit should be, this seems like the one thing we can all agree on.
Robin Wasserman
Since my teen years I was interested in martial arts.
Tony Visconti
Lesley Gore’s part-time field was pop singer, and in her brief but urgent prime, she was the Queen of Teen Angst. She endured heartbreak as a birthday girl betrayed by her beau in ‘It’s My Party,’ savored revenge in the sequel ‘Judy’s Turn to Cry’ and belted the proto-feminist anthem ‘You Don’t Own Me.’
Richard Corliss
There’s a freshness to the approach of teen chefs. They’re lighthearted, and they’re not afraid to take risks.
Alex Guarnaschelli
I don’t know if this is too weird to say, but this is completely surreal for me. Bizarre. The cover of ‘Teen Vogue’ has been on my bucket list forever.
Lily Collins
‘Teen Vogue’ is so much more than just a magazine. It’s so much more than just a website. It’s so much more than social. It’s really about the audience, and so we’re going to continue to innovate and continue to find new ways of reaching this audience in meaningful ways.
Elaine Welteroth
Prosecutors say it would be next to impossible to get o

Prosecutors say it would be next to impossible to get one teen to testify in court that another had slipped him or her a copied disc at lunchtime. And besides, isn’t sharing music a time-honored part of teen friendship?
Charles Duhigg
At the time I came along, Hollywood’s idea of teen movies meant there had to be a lot of nudity, usually involving boys in pursuit of sex, and pretty gross overall. Either that or a horror movie. And the last thing Hollywood wanted in their teen movies was teenagers!
John Hughes
In the public, it seems to be painted that when minorities get pregnant, they need to get abortions, especially when it comes to teen pregnancy. It’s like, when black girls are pregnant, it’s like a statistic, but when white girls get pregnant, they get a TV show.
Benjamin Watson
‘Teen Wolf’ ending is, like, huge. I know no acting without the show, basically.
Dylan O’Brien
My mother wrote a teen column for the South China Morning Post in the 1950s when she was growing up in Hong Kong. Her name was Lily Mark, but she sometimes wrote under her confirmation name, Margaret Mark. That was how she met my father.
Celeste Ng
I played teen roles until high definition came out, and I could never understand it. I would go in for adult roles and be older than many of the people auditioning, but they’d cast the girl without a line on her face.
Selma Blair
If you try to bring ‘teen drama,’ you end up doing nothing but pouting.
Max Irons
Before my teen years, I was losing my hearing pretty quickly, and I was getting very, very angry. I was beginning to become an angry person because of that.

I grew up in a difficult environment, but I became a Christian as a teen. My mom and my sister soon became Christians also.
Melody Carlson
When I was in college, I wanted to be involved in things that would change the world.
Elon Musk
Most of the offers I get from Hollywood are for teen comedies. My manager thinks I’m crazy for turning down all that money, but I’m very picky.
Macaulay Culkin
I don’t want to be a ‘teen star’ because so many people don’t ever grow out of that.
Lacey Chabert
The eight months I took off between ‘Teen Vogue’ and ‘Lucky’ afforded me such amazing opportunities, and I learned so much from so many different people – the brands that I worked with, the companies that I was consulting for.
Eva Chen
I went on an audition once for a show, and the feedback was to play an angry teen. My agent convinced me to try out. I was really bitter for a while, because it sucks when you don’t get good scripts after working on good quality.
Alia Shawkat
As a teen, ‘Thunder Road’ was always in my head.
Alice Ripley
I grew up watching a lot of stuff, like ‘Teen Titans.’
Jeremy Shada
I’d like a pop-up magazine with 45 articles on Russell Crowe. I’m like a teenager. I’d have ‘Teen Beat’ if I could, for grown-ups.
Caroline Rhea
People ask me, ‘How’s ‘Teen Wolf?’ and I tell them it’s literally the best job I’ve ever had. It’s hard. Everybody wants to be a series regular. It’s something that a lot of actors would kill to have. That being said, it’s very demanding of you, in so many different ways.
Shelley Hennig
‘I Think We’re Alone Now’ just makes people feel good. It became a teen anthem twice. How cool is that?
Tiffany Darwish
Being a musician since I was a teen, Guitar Center is the staple. You need anything to create, it’s there. You need a Guitar Center. You gotta give it homage. It’s a tool shed, and without the tool shed, it’s hard to create.
Steve Aoki
I think if we were going to worry about teen pregnancy being glamorized, we should worry about shows like ‘Teen Mom’. If people are going to want to have children at a young age because they see it on TV, I think that depends on the type of person you’re dealing with.
Chelsea Kane
I went to ‘The Nutcracker’ every year with my grandma and aunt. Then, in my early teen years, I thought I wanted to be a ballet dancer. I went real gung-ho in that direction, and I started performing in ‘The Nutcracker.’
Jinkx Monsoon
Even when I was a teen model, I didn’t think it was fair that I had to enter the acting world to get insurance.
Tyra Banks
Be it ‘Teen Bahuraniyaan’ or ‘Qubool Hai,’ Zee TV has always been special.
Amrapali Gupta
Adolescence is the conjugator of childhood and adulthood.
Louise J. Kaplan
Growing up, I didn’t have a chance to watch a lot of films. It wasn’t until my teen years that I had to chance to see the classic films.
Tye Sheridan
When I started out as a music journalist, at the end of the 1980s, it was generally assumed that we were living through the lamest music era the world would ever see. But those were also the years when hip-hop exploded, beatbox disco soared, indie rock took off, and new wave invented a language of teen angst.
Rob Sheffield
Most people, almost everyone knows of a teen mom. Teen pregnancy rates are growing, and we need to bring awareness to that.
Madisen Beaty
If you can get a teen leader in each sector of a student population, you can pull people in. Everybody wants to get involved, but most are too afraid. When they see a person they think is cool leading it, they’re first to join.
Andrew Shue
When I was a teenager, I read a lot of Poe.
Dario Argento
I was into all kinds of music as a teen – country music, because my dad was in a band that played country, and whatever my sister and brother were into.
Martina McBride
'The Karate Teen' was great, where John Cena kicked me

‘The Karate Teen’ was great, where John Cena kicked me through four walls, or five walls. It was amazing how the film unit put that together. They literally strapped me to a chair and dragged me through five different set walls.
Mikey Day
Mrs. Palin is history in a dress. And her script is straight out of Hollywood – like those teen movies with the cliched ending featuring the female valedictorian delivering the speech of a lifetime projecting a bold and transformative future with an independent-minded woman in charge.
Andrew Breitbart
In our country, being from immigrant parents, growing up black in the South, coming out at 16 years old, being a teen parent… you would assume that my life would amount to nothing. And here I stand today. So, if I can do it… you can, too!
Karamo Brown
Jockeying for a popularity position has been a valorized teen tradition since the notion of a discrete teen stage of life was invented.
Mary H.K. Choi
I do a lot of teen shows and voice over work for animation, so when I got the part in ‘The Number 23,’ it was really cool because now I get to be in a movie with Jim Carrey. Acting in this movie was really a learning experience for me.
Paul Butcher
My first encounter with Cyborg was through the ‘Teen Titans’ cartoon.
Ray Fisher
I love being in a public space where teenagers are talking. And the funny thing is that it hasn’t changed that much. There’s certainly slang that I’m not familiar with, but among the average teen, it’s still the same.
Marti Noxon
We all have things in our lives that are terrible: you apologize for them; you wish you never had you name on it. But ‘Teen Wolf’ is something that I’m very proud of.
Jeph Loeb
I’ve thought about it, but I don’t think I’d ever get a ‘Teen Wolf’ tattoo, and I don’t know why.
Tyler Posey
Female adolescence is – universally – an emotionally and psychologically intense period.
Caitlin Flanagan
Teen pregnancy went way down in the ’90s, and 75 percent of it was because of increased use of contraception.
Al Franken
When I was growing up, particularly during puberty in my teen years, I was so miserable because I elicited so much teasing and meanness from my teenage cohorts.
Linda Hunt
So many people try to grow up too fast, and it’s not fun! You should stay a kid as long as possible!
Vanessa Hudgens
Telling a teenager the facts of life is like giving a fish a bath.
Arnold H. Glasow
I’m a comic nerd. I’m a former serious collector for much of my childhood and early teen years I wanted to draw underground comics.
Anthony Bourdain
I’ve got some great stuff in my sports memorabilia collection. But my favorite thing by far is the robe. I actually have a Ric Flair robe with ‘the Nature Boy’ on the back. That’s awesome. When I look at it, it brings back so many memories of my childhood and my teen years.
Darius Rucker
In my teen years leading up to the Olympics, I loved having the excuse to skip out on parties because of skating. Partying wasn’t my thing anyway. Mostly I hung out with other skaters. We were all buddies, so it’s not like I missed out on socializing. I was really enjoying myself.
Dorothy Hamill
I definitely think there could be stricter teen driving laws.
Victoria Justice
I grew up in this household where reading was the most noble thing you could do. When I was a teenager, we would have family dinners where we all sat there reading. It wasn’t because we didn’t like each other. We just liked reading. The person who made my reading list until my late teen years was my mom.
Keith Gessen
‘Choli Ke Peeche’ and ‘Ek Doh Teen’ were my favourite numbers as a kid. I was a huge fan of Madhuri Dixit and would spend hours looking into the mirror and aping her expressions, believing that the mirror was the camera!
Karishma Tanna
I used to play ‘Grand Theft Auto’ when I was an early teen, between eleven and thirteen.
Charlotte Ritchie
I thought Korra was 17 so Mike and I have to get our stories straight. The main characters are in their late teens, we’ve always loved those kind of teen love triangle type stories and there was plenty of that in the original series.
Bryan Konietzko
I’ve always enjoyed teen characters, and kids as well. For whatever reason, I seem to have an ability to do it sort of well, and I enjoy doing it.
Jeff Lemire
Well, I could do it for a day, but I wouldn’t want to be a teenager again. I really wouldn’t.
Jamie Lee Curtis
The distinction has blurred between young adult and adult books. Some of the teen books have become more sophisticated.
Ann Brashares
I’m still good friends with everybody from ‘Teen Wolf.’ I still see them, and I go to Jeff Davis’ for ‘Teen Wolf’ night when I can. It was such a rewarding experience. That’s such a fun set.
Adelaide Kane
It’s only shocking to the uninitiated that ‘Teen Vogue’ would have the audacity to be political and style-focused.
Elaine Welteroth
I think the fans from the original ‘Teen Wolf’ tuned in expecting us to ruin the franchise, and I think that we’ve only heightened it. So we’ve brought ‘Teen Wolf’ back.
Colton Haynes
My high school years were fun and frustrating, typical of the teen years. The most important accomplishment was meeting my wife, Ruth.
Alan J. Heeger
Friendships in childhood are usually a matter of chance, whereas in adolescence they are most often a matter of choice.
David Elkind
Costumes say a lot about a character. When it came to ‘Palo Alto,’ it was important for me that the kids didn’t look perfect. In most teen movies today, all of the clothes are expensive. I remember wearing a lot of dirty vintage clothes.
Gia Coppola
Growing up, I didn't have a lot of toys, and personal e

Growing up, I didn’t have a lot of toys, and personal entertainment depended on individual ingenuity and imagination – think up a story and go live it for an afternoon.
Terry Brooks
When I was 13, I moved to Los Angeles to pursue television and film roles. I booked shows like ‘The Secret Life of the American Teenager,’ ‘Liv and Maddie,’ and ‘Teen Wolf.’
Jordan Fisher
In ‘Teen Wolf,’ I don’t really have any stunts. And if I do, it’s like Stiles falls on the ground or something like that.
Dylan O’Brien
I didn’t know what it was going to look like or how anything was going to turn out, but the production on ‘Teen Wolf’ is so amazing. The way that they shoot it, edit it, and put it out there, it’s really so exciting. I trust the team so much. They do such a good job.
Arden Cho
I mean, I’m pretty good in real life, but sometimes people seem surprised that I’m like a normal teenager and wear black nail polish and I’m just a little bit more edgy than the person I play on television.
Brittany Snow
Writing a teen character is something I wanted to try again for a long time!
Emily Giffin
The youth need to be enabled to become job generators from job seekers.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
It seems like whenever a big newspaper or TV show talks about teen literature, they focus on dark books or vampire books. It’s kind of this cliche. It seems like the only time adults pay attention is with that angle.
Jay Asher
As a teen, I was both anorexic and bulimic.
Alanis Morissette
I was never interested in ‘Teen Beat’ like roles. I just wanted to work.
Jared Leto
There was so much pressure to fit in, I tried to force myself to be like everyone else. The last thing any teen wants is to be ‘uncool.’
I’ll write teen stories as long as people will let me. I’ll also be excited for the day when I’m told I can no longer write teen stories.
Stephanie Savage
Maybe that’s the whole teen oeuvre, you know covering people in disgusting bodily fluids and whatnot.
Rider Strong
My top goal as your Secretary of State is to save lives by reducing fatal traffic crashes. When I established the Teen Driver Safety Task Force, the goal was to improve Illinois’ graduated driver licensing law and, even more importantly, to save lives.
Jesse White
My interest was magic, believe it or not. I became an amateur magician and did something like 400 magic shows through my teen years.
David Pogue
Ever since I was a little teen, I was told by my great-grandma that you’ve got to always have a good moisturizer. I use cocoa butter, and I use it for all things needing moisture – face, hair, throw it on those legs at the beach, get them all shiny. Cocoa butter is such a great product.
Sufe Bradshaw
Growing up, I wanted desperately to please, to be a good girl.
Claire Danes
I think growing up is difficult and it’s a process that I’m always interested in, with kids and adults, they are often on two different universes.
Alice Hoffman
I just felt being part of my peer group so strongly. I was immersed in teen culture, but not taken in by it.
S. E. Hinton
Adolescence is just one big walking pimple.
Carol Burnett
I actually worry that we’re so mindlessly following the herd on privacy and data being the principle concerns when the actual things that are affecting the felt sense of your life and where your time goes, where your attention goes, where democracy goes, where teen mental health goes, where outrage goes.
Tristan Harris
I would not recommend a teen getting into modeling if they’re not solid when it comes to their grades and school. That comes first. My mother always told me that came first.
Tyra Banks
When I started writing, there was nothing about zombies. It was all teen movies, which to me are scarier than zombies, but that’s another story.
Max Brooks
My whole life, starting as a young teen, I was a hard fit for clothes.
Shoshanna Lonstein Gruss
The phrase ‘teen hottie’ literally makes me want to throw up.
Teenagers who are never required to vacuum are living in one.
Fred G. Gosman
I don’t think there’s a problem with being a teen idol, if that happens to me, I’ll be happy to deal with it.
Josh Hartnett
I think teen girls will like ‘Geek Charming’ because they really focus on the ‘populars’ and nerdy people and people who are in between the nerds and between the populars. So it really hits every category of what girls are going through in high school.
Lili Simmons
I don’t really think I feel pressured to become a teen sensation because that’s not really my goal in life. It’s not really about being star, being popular or having lots of girls. It’s really about continuing to be able to act and have fun, and do what I like to do.
Chris Massoglia
I really liked ‘Starter For Ten’ because I grew up watching 1980s teen films like ‘St. Elmo’s Fire’ and ‘The Breakfast Club’ and I’ve always wanted to play the underdog lead hero in a 1980s-inspired film.
James McAvoy
The area of teenage life is not necessarily rarefied; we’ve all gone through that period. It’s not as rarefied as a western or a space adventure or a gangster film, but it has its own dynamic.
Gus Van Sant
My first break was becoming a staff writer on the reboo

My first break was becoming a staff writer on the rebooted ‘90210.’ And then I got stuck writing in the teen genre for a while.
Allison Schroeder
Being bullied was the most difficult part of my early teen years.
Kate Gosselin
To even be called the ‘teen queen’ is crazy.
Victoria Justice
I think you go through a period as a teenager of being quite cool and unaffected by things.
Miranda Otto
If I can write a book that will help the world make a little more sense to a teen, then that’s why I was put on the planet.
Laurie Halse Anderson
Like me as a teen – and like many teenagers now – my characters are at a peculiar crossroads in their lives. They desperately seek freedom. But at the same time, they are constantly thwarted.
Sabaa Tahir
Reading was my escape growing up in Ohio. Both of my parents lost their jobs when I was a teen, and it was hard. But I always had my books. Reading gave me a way of living different lives.
Anna Todd
The endless teen franchises that come out of Hollywood… more often than not, the central character doesn’t have any discernible character traits. They’re just the young, good-looking guy who goes on this journey. They’re always played by fantastic young actors, but ultimately, they’re not very interesting characters.
Taron Egerton
I love writing about the summer between high school and college. It’s the last gasp of really being a teen.
Sarah Dessen
My own experience being bullied – it made me a more compassionate person. It made me more sympathetic to the adolescent experience.
Carolyn Mackler
I was a typical teen growing up in the 1960s, when everybody was into gurus and meditation.
David Suchet
We don’t tend to write about disease in fiction – not just teen novels but all American novels – because it doesn’t fit in with our idea of the heroic romantic epic. There is room only for sacrifice, heroism, war, politics and family struggle.
John Green
As I got older, I had a bunch of friends that were various teen stars. I’ve always known people in the spotlight and people who just grew up in L.A. and had nothing to do with the industry. It’s not a glamorous thing to me. It’s just a different type of business.
Troian Bellisario
I think there’s actually a benefit to working with teen actors: they’ve got such boundless energy, and everybody is willing to try different things.
Peyton Reed
For my teen years and all of my twenties it felt like I was trying to live up to this expectation of being a man and what that meant – not just what clothes I wore, but how I acted.
Courtney Act
I’ve met so many new fans and amazing people while traveling to new cities and locations throughout 2017 in support of my album ‘American Teen.’
I can have a song with Ariana Grande that is going to be the song for all the kids and the teen girls, and then another song that could be for a different group of people who all love the song. I’m with whoever. Whatever type of people want to love the music and whatever they love about the music is fine with me.
Mac Miller
Of course Stephen King doesn’t believe in teen novels. I’ve started to suspect he doesn’t even believe in teenagers.
Robin Wasserman
When I became a teen, I ran into a friend at a magic shop who took me under his wing. I started reading up on magical theory and immediately blended that with what my brothers had shown me.
Apollo Robbins
I’m pretty sure this is it for the teen movie thing. It’s so frustrating to read when you get to page 20 and you’re like, Oy! It’s the same thing again!
Marla Sokoloff
That can be the most painstaking aspect of being a teen, figuring out what the world really looks like. If you find someone in a book, you know you’re not alone and that’s what’s so comforting about books.
Laurie Halse Anderson
I was on a show called ‘Teen Diva’ which was being aired on MTV. I talked a lot on the show and the boss there thought I was good for VJ-ing since I spoke so much.
Rhea Chakraborty
I didn’t know too much about his comic book history. I know that in ‘Teen Titans,’ he’s much more the comedic relief. But after reading the comic book iteration of Cyborg in ‘The New Teen Titans’ from the 1980s that Marv Wolfman and George Perez had worked on, I saw that there was a lot of texture to the character.
Ray Fisher
Katy Perry still gets me every time. She’s very funny in person! We met at the Teen Choice Awards and she pulled my cheeks apart and told me how cute I was. My life was literally flashing before my eyes!
Niall Horan
It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are.
e. e. cummings
When it’s my time to go, I’ll go, but the only time that’s going to be for ‘Teen Mom’ is when the network takes it off the air.
Farrah Abraham
I am not officially involved now in the direction of the Teen Challenge ministry, but I rejoice that God permits me to be the father of these ministries.
David Wilkerson
I saw myself as an outsider as a teen. I was home-schooled and got my G.E.D. when I was 16; I wasn’t interested in high school at all and figured that college might be more entertaining.
Maggie Stiefvater
I was a teen idol in Latin America.
Jose Feliciano
I wanted to be a writer as a teen… so storytelling was my first love. In my late teens, design became an obsession as I realized that I could express myself through the medium. Much later, when I founded Fuseproject in 1999, our slogan became ‘design brings stories to life.’
Yves Behar
My teenage years were exactly what they were supposed to be. Everybody has their own path. It’s laid out for you. It’s just up to you to walk it.
Justin Timberlake
I've started ordering out of teen catalogues! T-shirts,

I’ve started ordering out of teen catalogues! T-shirts, little coats, and jackets for around $35 – they’re amazing. I’ve become a really big fan of Urban Outfitters, Alloy and Anthropologie. Because I’ll pay for quality, but I will not just pay for trend. Psychologically, I have trouble with that.
Ivanka Trump
It’s about time we make the well-being of our young people more important than ideology and politics. As a country, we benefit from investing in their future by investing in teen pregnancy prevention.
Jane Fonda
As a young teen, Satan and the idea of some sort of world that you could be in touch with that could empower you was very much the symbol for freedom.
Tobias Forge
People now tell me it’s a good thing I stayed away from teen films. Well, it wasn’t my choice. I wasn’t hired.
Laura Dern
Teen problem novels? I can go through them like a box of chocolates. And there are fantasy books out now that need a lot more editing. Fantasy got to be so popular that people began to think ‘We don’t need to be as diligent with the razor blade,’ but they do.
Tamora Pierce
I have always had a sense that we are all pretty much alone in life, particularly in adolescence.
Robert Cormier
Adolescence is a new birth, for the higher and more completely human traits are now born.
G. Stanley Hall
Teenage girls read in packs. It’s true today, and it was true when I was a teen growing up in a small town in northeast Oklahoma.
Ally Carter
You have teenagers thinking they’re going to make millions as NBA stars when that’s not realistic for even 1 percent of them. Becoming a scientist or engineer is.
Dean Kamen
I got into James Blake quite early, like when I was early teen, and that was really important for me.
Mura Masa
Children, even infants, are capable of sympathy. But only after adolescence are we capable of compassion.
Louise J. Kaplan
Cartoons are the best stuff on TV. ‘Wonder Showzen,’ ‘Aqua Teen,’ ‘SpongeBob,’ and, of course, ‘South Park’ – one of the funniest shows ever made.
Akiva Schaffer
Teenagers who are never required to vacuum are living in one.
Fred G. Gosman
I have this sense that I didn’t really start growing up until my twenties.
Winona Ryder
I took high school very casually. There was Teen Town, chess, tennis, boxing, running. Lots of things going on.
Robert Mundell
I think doing ‘Teen Wolf’ is just giving me a really great opportunity to possibly get other jobs and show what I can do.
Colton Haynes
I was a vegetarian through many of my teen years and easily revert back to that occasionally, but my immune system is usually happier with a bit of real meat.
Holly Marie Combs
Certain elements of teen life that, 10 years ago, were very important to me still, are becoming less so as I get older. I mean, I’ve kinda gotten over, I guess I’m saying, the fact that I had trouble getting a date for the prom.
Matthew Tobin Anderson
Obviously when you’re a teen you have no money, so you make, like, three outfits out of one dress. You’re like, ‘OK cut the arms here. Alright: New party, cut them to here.’
Marina and the Diamonds
I started messing around in my teen years but didn’t really begin training properly until the age of 21. I did a lot of reading prior to that – Mike Mentzer, Arthur Jones and all other notable bodybuilding authors – and just came up with a routine that worked for me.
Dorian Yates
As a unique person, I was bullied badly as a teen.
Lady Starlight
I remember as a teen being able to eat more than my father. I was growing so fast and my body couldn’t keep up.
Saskia de Brauw
As a teen, I heard the second Velvet Underground album, ‘White Light/White Heat,’ and it was too much for my limited scope of appreciation. It was intense, but I didn’t get it.
Henry Rollins
Let us develop an agenda for children that says we can do something about teen pregnancy. Let us make sure that parents are old enough, wise enough, and financially able to take care of their children.
Janet Reno
I hate it when people call me a teen queen.
Lindsay Lohan
During my teen years, I was real emotional. I could be really up or down.
Andie MacDowell
I’m so fascinated by the concept of teen pregnancy for some reason. Not that I condone it or promote it, but it’s just a very real thing in our country and culture.
Leven Rambin
The Teen Challenge ministry was born out of those humble early days of ministry. It now includes over 500 drug and alcohol rehab centers around the world, even in Muslim countries. These include homes for girls and women addicts and alcoholics, all which are reaching many.
David Wilkerson
My whole life, growing up, I always wanted to be in comedy. I never felt comfortable doing the ‘teen hunk’ thing.
Dustin Milligan
Growing up in New Jersey, teen clubs were your life. I’m not kidding! That was it. I was literally tied up five days a week with teen clubs; my parents would drop me off. Like, I didn’t even drive.
Michelle Visage
Trump gets too much credit for ‘Teen Vogue”s evolution.
Elaine Welteroth
As a teenager, I didn't read a ton of teen fiction, and

As a teenager, I didn’t read a ton of teen fiction, and now I feel like I wish that I had.
Jesse Andrews
I absolutely adore classic crime and read a huge amount as a teen – Agatha Christie, Dorothy L. Sayers, Sherlock Holmes, Josephine Tey, and many more.
Ruth Ware
I will say that I know Nirvana did a show and played a few chords from ‘More Than a Feeling’ before they did ‘Teen Spirit,’ and it wasn’t very good. But in all seriousness, ‘Teen Spirit’ was a great song. If subconsciously or somehow I had any influence on that, I’ll take that as a compliment.
Tom Scholz
In the Top 40, half the songs are secret messages to the teen world to drop out, turn on, and groove with the chemicals and light shows at discotheques.
Art Linkletter
When I was in the 12th grade, I got my girlfriend pregnant. I just got out of school, she was a 10th-grader. I’m a teen parent, and I’m at a point where I’m like, ‘Man I’ve got to do something.’
Ice T
Jughead, to me, was reflective of a teen experience that made a lot of sense to me.
Cole Sprouse
It’s important for Asian American kids to see themselves in stories and to feel seen. They need to know that their stories are universal, too, that they, too, can fall in love in a teen movie. They don’t have to be the sidekick; they can be the hero.
Jenny Han
What’s with the whole ‘child actor’ and ‘teen actor’ thing? You’re either an actor or actress, or you’re not. I don’t get it! I want to be taken seriously as an actor.
Julian Dennison
‘Snowpiercer’ is a little bit more experimental, I think, and crafted for a slightly different audience. ‘The Giver’ is more about teen angst.
Marco Beltrami
The toddler must say no in order to find out who she is. The adolescent says no to assert who she is not.
Louise J. Kaplan
I started working as a movie writer and a movie producer… all the way back to ‘Teen Wolf’ and ‘Commando.’ All of those experiences, plus working both at DC and at Marvel – each of those things are bricks in the wall.
Jeph Loeb
I’m a teenager, but I’m independent – I have my own apartment, I have my own life. And I think I have learned more than any of those teenagers have in school. I learned to be responsible, leaving my family and coming here alone.
Adriana Lima
Even though I was super personal with ‘American Teen,’ I want to tap in and not just tell my own stories but tell the stories of other people – so that I can help as many people as possible.
The most important role models should and could be parents and teachers. But that said, once you’re a teenager you’ve probably gotten as much of an example from your parents as you’re going to.
Andrew Shue
If you were an optimistic teen, then you’ll be an optimist at 80. People’s reactions to bad events are highly stable over a half century or more.
Martin Seligman
