"Lollipops turn into cigarettes. The innocent ones turn into sluts. Homework goes in the trash. Mobile phones used in class. ... Detention becomes suspension. Soda becomes vodka. Bikes become cars. Kisses turn into sex. Remember when getting high meant swinging on the playground? When protection meant wearing a helmet? When the worst things you could get from boys were cooties? Dad’s shoulders were the highest place on earth and mum was your hero? Your worst enemies were your siblings. Race issues were about who ran the fastest. War was only a card game. And the only drug you knew was cough medicine. When wearing a skirt didn’t make you a skank. The most pain you felt was when you skinned your knees, and goodbyes only meant until tomorrow?" And we couldn’t wait to grow up".Religion is beautiful if understood right and scary if practiced wrong- Unknown There is no act more beautiful than the generosity of the very poor- Gregory Roberts Ask the experienced rather than the learned- Arabic proverb Only the tent pitched by your own hands will stand- Arabic proverb You must be the change you want to see in the world- Mahatma Ghandi The lion must roar sometimes just to remind the horse of his fear- Gregory Roberts The burden of happiness can only be relieved by the balm of suffering- Gregory Roberts Sometimes we love with nothing more than hope & cry with everything but tears- Gregory Roberts No man can reveal to you nothing but that which already lies half-asleep in the dawning of your knowledge- Khalil Gibran Out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls; the most massive characters are seared with scars- Khalil Gibran Excuse me, while i kiss the sky- Jimi Hendrix We have multiplied our possessions but reduced our values- Cowards die many times before their death- Shakespeare So wise, so young they say never do live long- Shakespeare
