Adolescent Quotations

Virginia Satir

Young children seem to be learning who to share this toy with and figure out how it works, while adolescents seem to be exploring some very deep and profound questions: 'How should this society work? How should relationships among people work?' The exploration is: 'Who am I, what am I doing?'
Alison Gopnik

Gerald R. Ford

There's only one thing harder than living in a home with an adolescent - and that's being an adolescent.

In adolescence, they're just part of the behavioral portfolio.
Jeffrey Kluger
