If you say, 'I'm going to cut this song because I know the teenagers are going to love it,' well, then you're going to alienate everybody else. When I cut my record, I'm just going to cut the things that I like, and whoever likes it, likes it. That's too much work to try to figure out the demographic. That's too much like a business.

Though teenagers are generally very interested in sports, they must realise that education is the most important thing in their lives. They must find the right balance.
Teenagers would rather text than talk. They feel calls would reveal too much.
Drugs are in every walk of life - doctors, lawyers, preachers, the guy who works for IBM, teenagers on the street, teenagers in school.
I guess if you're lucky enough not to have to pay your rent, then you or I take much more seriously the kind of work that I do, what it takes for me to leave two teenagers of my own and six stepchildren and a husband and four grandchildren.
Every generation of rock musician will understand that we wouldn't be anywhere without the support of teenagers buying the records.
As teenagers, we all see ourselves as outsiders... and it's very easy to look at other people who are more popular, who have more pocket money, and it makes you feel even more like an outsider, and it does shape who you become as a person.
I want to be involved with young people in some way. Teenagers. Because that's the most vulnerable time. I have a fantasy of becoming a teacher one day.
Many nations are like rebellious teenagers who try to figure out just how many times they can kick us in the teeth while still taking our money.
There is an inherent tolerance and kindness in the state school teenagers I know.
A lot of teenagers have parents that are maybe a little too real with them.
Older teens tend to write to me and say, 'Thank you for not writing down to teenagers.'
Matthew Tobin Anderson
I have a really big family, and pretty much all my work is about my brothers and sisters. I'm the youngest of eight - my mom had seven kids in seven years, and then she had me 11 years later - so I was basically raised by all these teenagers.
American high school students trail teenagers from 14 European and Asian countries in reading, math and science. We're even trailing France.
Just because you have teenagers in a movie doesn't make it a teen movie.
It is clear from all these data that the interests of teenagers are not focused around studies, and that scholastic achievement is at most of minor importance in giving status or prestige to an adolescent in the eyes of other adolescents.
James S. Coleman
My focus has kind of been on teenagers, you know, and I think we've got a huge crisis right now in America, among our teens.

'Freaks and Geeks' was my favorite show when it was on, by a wide measure. And that's the show I wanted to do. I noodled with the idea of doing a show about teenagers that told small stories, small moments of personal growth.
It's very witty and it's great to see teenage characters have control that way. And you can actually hear about sex and pot and it's okay, it's not completely bad and you can't say that to teenagers.
I really think 'Spring Awakening' is unlike any other show. At the end of the day, I hope people are moved by it... whether they love it or they find it uncomfortable. I hope this show can awaken something in them, or reminds them of their childhood, or offers a bit of assurance to what teenagers are going through. It's a great piece of theater.
