The feminist movement is not about success for women.

I grew up very fast as a young girl, but I grew slowly into my womanhood.

Actually, to be an effective person politically in this country, I think you have to be thirty or over, and also you have to be rich, well-placed, you have to be close to power. And I don’t think that young people, because they look young, can do much, as I think they are counterproductive.
My parents named me Arlette, and I changed it to Agnes when I was young. I didn’t like it because I don’t like names with ‘ette’ – you know, it looks like a little girl‘s name.

I had this idea that being an introvert was a negative thing, that it had a negative connotation, and I really wanted, as a young person, to strive to be the life of the party and to be really outgoing and to have a million friends. And then I realized that an introvert isn’t a negative.
By channeling my inner heiress, I created a new opportunity for young heiresses.
I was born in Niagara Falls. The high school I went to had 500 kids and the school didn’t have a lot of money. The town itself was whatever. It was a good place to grow up. It was a blessing that I grew up there, because I got to find myself at a young age.
I was lonely as a young teenager and my only companion was an acoustic guitar. I would bring it with me on modeling trips.

If you don’t die of thirst, there are blessings in the desert. You can be pulled into limitlessness, which we all yearn for, or you can do the beauty of minutiae, the scrimshaw of tiny and precise. The sky is your ocean, and the crystal silence will uplift you like great gospel music, or Neil Young.
I’ve always wanted to race cars, ever since I was a young boy, as I think a lot of guys have.
Gay rights is just a matter of time. Look at the polls. Worrying about gay marriage, let alone gay civil unions or gay employment rights, is a middle-age issue. Young people just can’t see the problem. At worst, gays are going to win this one just by waiting until the opposition dies off.
I’m no longer young, but I still enjoy the competition and the feeling of that.
New ideas for innovation grow out of the minds of each new generation. Having an institution of higher learning that can help young people put those ideas into action is critical.

I think the most important thing… is leadership. It’s something that has been lacking in young women and girls for a very long time, not because we don’t want to but because of what society has labeled women to be. I think we are the most powerful beings in the world and that we should be given every opportunity.
A woman would rather visit her own grave than the place where she has been young and beautiful after she is aged and ugly.
I guess when we’re young, we all have that fascination with flying.

I’m really not interested in acting as a facade, I’m interested in it as an emotional expression and as a transcendent experience for an individual.

Fate is being kind to me. Fate doesn’t want me to be too famous too young.

As a young man, every bone in my body wanted to pick up a machine gun and kill Germans. And yet I had absolutely no reason to do so. Certainly nobody invited me to do the job. But that’s what I felt that I was trained to do. Now no part of my upbringing was militaristic.
Engagement with young people is always a refreshing break with routine. It’s also a reminder of how we need to constantly keep our thinking agile and unencumbered by traditional rules.
I think it’s a shame when you come across young actors and musicians who haven’t had the time to learn their craft. It doesn’t matter if it’s acting or music; you really have to learn how to do it from the bottom up because unless you have a great work ethic… fame is a terrible thing to have.
The truth is that those who join gangs – more often than not they are young men in their later teens – often do come from the most difficult family backgrounds, from an environment where they feel neglected and unwanted.

Young people have decided they like to listen to music in a certain way, through ear buds, and that’s fine with me as long as it doesn’t bother them that they’re not hearing 90 percent of the music that way.
I would hate to be thrust into the middle of a big film and not deliver. There’s young actors and they’re put into these central roles and they’re commanding armies – but they can’t quite pull it off. I’d much rather do it in small steps and build it from there.
I think America is a new country. It is a young culture. The spirit of the opening of the West is still with the Americans. It’s a very practical and individual-based kind of philosophy that had worked in America for a long time, had been very successful. And the spirit is very much there.
I first wrote for adults, but when I started writing for young people, it was the most creative and liberating experience of my life. I was able to express my own deepest feelings far more than I ever could when writing for adults.

My message, especially to young people is to have courage to think differently, courage to invent, to travel the unexplored path, courage to discover the impossible and to conquer the problems and succeed.

She said, ‘What if you are wrong?’ and I answered that rather briefly, and that’s gone viral.
Nobody wants to go through divorce, especially when there’s young children involved.

Music keeps you young. Having music in your life keeps you open to things.
The message to the young players is that hard work and dedication is everything. As a footballer, or anything in life, if you’re dedicated you have to fight for that and don’t give up however hard it is.
I remember being young in the 1960s… we had a great sense of the future, a great big hope. This is what is missing in the youth today. This being able to dream and to change the world.

I did two commercials, one for Porsche, but I was definitely not the type of child one would cast in a commercial or any TV that you’d typically go out for as a young kid. I wasn’t the type of kid who would be in stuff that kids watch. I wasn’t cutesy.
Love is the word used to label the sexual excitement of the young, the habituation of the middle-aged, and the mutual dependence of the old.

As the humanities and liberal arts are downsized, privatized, and commodified, higher education finds itself caught in the paradox of claiming to invest in the future of young people while offering them few intellectual, civic, and moral supports.

I know that in my past I was young and irresponsible – but that’s what growing up is. You learn from your mistakes.
If one area I felt it was a tough election was I couldn’t see my young son and I couldn’t see my wife a lot, but apart from that for her also it was an experience.
I love Styx as much as I could love anything in my life. I started playing in the band when I was 14 years old. You become so involved in something when you start in it that young; you’re doing it purely out of love of what you’re doing and a belief in it.
When Pearl Harbor was bombed, young Japanese-Americans, like all young Americans, rushed to their draft board to volunteer to fight for our country. That act of patriotism was answered with a slap in the face. We were denied service and categorized as enemy non-alien.

I’m very careful about how I portray violence in my films. I do believe that violence, especially violent video games, are not a good thing for young kids.
I started out really young, when I was four, five, six, writing poems, before I could play an instrument. I was writing about things when I was eight or 10 years old that I hadn’t lived long enough to experience. That’s why I also believe in reincarnation, that we were put here with ideas to pass around.
We danced on the lip of the volcano, so to speak. We were young, too. And New York was still a big, open city where anything could happen and anyone could be star. Rents were cheap, creativity was encouraged, and bottle service was still 20 years away. That was the era the Club Kids came into.
The fact is that young people are going to have sex whether you like it or not.
Go West, young man.
