#1. And when they finally demanded that I had to stop keeping score and that I needed to play every future contest as an exhibition, I casually made the kind of statement sixteen-year-olds should not make to forty-six-year-old Midwestern housewives: "Why are you telling me how to do my job?" I asked. "It's not like I show up in your kitchen and tell you when to bake cookies. - Author: Chuck Klosterman
Sixteen Year Olds quotes by Chuck Klosterman
#2. I'd been reborn since Marlboro Man had entered my life; his wild abandon and unabashed passion had freed me from the shackles of cynicism, from thinking that love had to be something to labor over or agonize about. He'd ridden into my life on a speckled gray horse and had saved my heart from hardness. He'd taught me that when you love someone, you say it--and that when it comes to matters of the heart, games are for pimply sixteen-year-olds.
Up until then that's all I'd been: a child masquerading as a disillusioned adult, looking at love much as I'd looked at a round of Marco Polo in the pool at the country club: when they swam after me, I'd swim away. And there are accusations of peeking and cheating, and you always wind up sunburned and pruney and pooped. And no one ever wins.
It was Marlboro Man who'd helped me out of the pool, wrapped a towel around my blistering shoulders, and carried me to a world where love has nothing to do with competition or sport or strategy. He told me he loved me when he felt like it, when he thought of it. He never saw any reason not to. - Author: Ree Drummond
Sixteen Year Olds quotes by Ree Drummond

Sixteen Year Olds quotes by Phyllis Diller

Sixteen Year Olds quotes by Renee Fleming

Sixteen Year Olds quotes by Veronica Roth
#6. Sixteen is the key and crucial and natural age for a human being to be, and people of all other ages are ranged in an orderly manner ahead of and behind you as a harmonious setting for the sixteen-year-olds of this world. - Author: John Knowles
Sixteen Year Olds quotes by John Knowles
#7. When I was a child at sixteen, I was just a child. All sixteen year-olds are just children. As much as we like them to be adults, they are just children. And like all children, they need their mother, and they need their father. All children need their mother and their father. All children are entitled to their mother and their father. - Author: Frank Abagnale
Sixteen Year Olds quotes by Frank Abagnale
#8. They were giving their childhood to this woman! They were starting at seven, and by the time they were sixteen they were still reading bloody Harry Potter - sixteen-year-olds, wearing wizard outfits, who should have been shagging behind the bike shed and smoking marijuana and reading Camus. - Author: Alan Taylor
Sixteen Year Olds quotes by Alan   Taylor
#9. You must have a certain amount of maturity to be a poet. Seldom do sixteen-year-olds know themselves well enough. - Author: Erica Jong
Sixteen Year Olds quotes by Erica Jong
#10. She was right: school was lonely. The eighteen and nineteen year olds didn't socialize with the younger kids, and though there were plenty of students my age and younger [ ... ] their lives were so cloistered and their concerns so foolish and foreign-seeming that it was as if they spoke some lost middle-school tongue I'd forgotten. They lived at home with their parents; they worried about things like grade curves and Italian Abroad and summer internships at the UN; they freaked out if you lit a cigarette in front of them; they were earnest, well-meaning, undamaged, clueless. For all I had in common with any of them, I might as well have tried to go down and hang out with the eight year olds at PS 41. - Author: Donna Tartt
Sixteen Year Olds quotes by Donna Tartt
#11. I always looked really young for my age. And once I hit 23, 24 and 25, I was then allowed to play the cool 18-year-olds and stuff. - Author: Ben Barnes
Sixteen Year Olds quotes by Ben Barnes
#12. The frantic search of five-year-olds for friends can thus be seen to forecast the beginnings of a basic shift in the parent-childrelationship, a shift which will occur gradually over many long years, and in which a child needs not only the support of child allies engaged in the same struggle but also the understanding of his parents. - Author: Dorothy H Cohen
Sixteen Year Olds quotes by Dorothy H Cohen
#13. A good upbringing is necessary for a long life, but sometimes the patience of the young trees is sorely tested. As I mentioned in chapter 5, "Tree Lottery," acorns and beechnuts fall at the feet of large "mother trees." Dr. Suzanne Simard, who helped discover maternal instincts in trees, describes mother trees as dominant trees widely linked to other trees in the forest through their fungal-root connections. These trees pass their legacy on to the next generation and exert their influence in the upbringing of the youngsters. "My" small beech trees, which have by now been waiting for at least eighty years, are standing under mother trees that are about two hundred years old -- the equivalent of forty-year-olds in human terms. The stunted trees can probably expect another two hundred years of twiddling their thumbs before it is finally their turn. The wait time is, however, made bearable. Their mothers are in contact with them through their root systems, and they pass along sugar and other nutrients. You might even say they are nursing their babies. - Author: Peter Wohlleben
Sixteen Year Olds quotes by Peter Wohlleben

Sixteen Year Olds quotes by Gloria Estefan
#15. April is the two-week-old kitten, the month-old lamb, the six-month-old heifer, the two-year-old girl. Too young to know it has either past or future, it wears the ribbon of the fleeting present as part of itself ... - Author: Gladys Hasty Carroll
Sixteen Year Olds quotes by Gladys Hasty Carroll
#16. I did a concert at five years old in the garden of one of the church members, and we raised some money to buy a new piano in our little church. - Author: Al Jarreau
Sixteen Year Olds quotes by Al Jarreau
#17. There's probably no better example of the throttling of creativity than the difference between what we observe in a kindergarten classroom and what we observe in a high school classroom," she writes in Teach Your Children Well. "Take a room full of five-year-olds and you will see creativity in all its forms positively flowing around the room. A decade later you will see these same children passively sitting at their desks, half asleep or trying to decipher what will be on the next test. - Author: Madeline Levine
Sixteen Year Olds quotes by Madeline Levine
#18. You know, I've worked out that if I lived on Mercury I'd be sixty-six years old tomorrow. I'd be twenty-six on Venus, and half a year old on Saturn. I'm only sixteen because I'm on this planet. - Author: Holly Smale
Sixteen Year Olds quotes by Holly Smale
#19. It was in Shizuoka, where my home was. I first attended this school when I was five years old. I also attended a regular elementary school, and I was taking piano lessons with a local teacher. I began to study composition at the Yamaha school. And I continued to study there until the age of 15. - Author: Hiromi
Sixteen Year Olds quotes by Hiromi
#20. Well," said Ruth, when the sounds of the bells had died away, "when you eight-year-olds kill Evil here in Nuremberg, be sure to bury it at a crossroads and drive a stake through its heart - or you just might see it again at the next full moooooooooooooooooon. - Author: Kurt Vonnegut Jr.
Sixteen Year Olds quotes by Kurt Vonnegut Jr.
#21. Cat's friends seemed like very sweet girls," Dad says.
"They were the bomb," I say fervently, and he looks back at me with raised eyebrows.
"'The bomb' is a good thing? Like 'sick'?
"Duh," I reply, and Dad lets out a sigh.
"Thirteen-year-olds should come with subtitles," he says, turning onto our street. - Author: Maya Gold
Sixteen Year Olds quotes by Maya Gold
#22. No element gets people telling crazy stories like mercury does. People have told me tales about pharmacists waxing floors with mercury, mothers rubbing it into babies' skin to kill germs, and 10-year-olds coating dimes in it to make them shine, then blithely carrying them around in their pockets. - Author: Sam Kean
Sixteen Year Olds quotes by Sam Kean
#23. Don't feel guilty if you don't know what you wanna do with your life; the most interesting people I know didn't know at 22 what they wanted to do with their lives; some of the most interesting 40 year olds I know still don't. - Author: Baz Luhrmann
Sixteen Year Olds quotes by Baz Luhrmann
#24. I never really got nightmares from movies. In fact, I recall my father saying when I was three years old that I would be scared, but I never was. I was much more terrified by my own family and real life, you know? - Author: Tim Burton
Sixteen Year Olds quotes by Tim Burton
#25. They gutted the book, making an action movie for 15-25 year olds. Tolkien became ... devoured by his popularity and absorbed by the absurdity of the time. The gap widened between the beauty, the seriousness of the work, and what it has become is beyond me. This level of marketing reduces to nothing the aesthetic and philosophical significance of this work. - Author: Christopher Tolkien
Sixteen Year Olds quotes by Christopher Tolkien
#26. I'm not going to pretend to know what's going on with you," he says. "But if you senselessly risk your life again
"
"I am not senselessly risking my life. I am trying to make sacrifices, like my parents would have, like
"
"You are not your parents You are a sixteen-year-old girl
"
I grit my teeth. "How dare you
"
"
who doesn't understand that the value of a sacrifice lies in its necessity, not in throwing your life away! And if you do that again, you and I are done. - Author: Veronica Roth
Sixteen Year Olds quotes by Veronica Roth
#27. We're in an inflection point where it's cheaper to learn to read on a tablet computer than it is to learn to read on paper. And that being the case, it's only a matter of time before every 6-year-old kid has a tablet computer, and we know for a fact, 3- to 4-year-old kids are using tablets and iPads, and 75 and 80 year olds are using them. - Author: Michael J. Saylor
Sixteen Year Olds quotes by Michael J. Saylor
#28. Roddy the assistant manager lived in the theater. He'd emptied out one of the supply closets. He'd installed an inflatable mattress, a Shower Anywhere portable shower, and a wee television. He slept amid the powdered-butter fumes and empty drink-syrup tanks. He had grub-white skin and Goth circles under his eyes that, unlike those of Goths, came from really, truly existing half in the world of the dead. He smelled like carpeting, Scotch tape, and steak sauce. He was almost forty but had one of those half mustaches that thirteen-year-olds have. He was the closest thing to a zombie I've yet encountered in this world. - Author: Patton Oswalt
Sixteen Year Olds quotes by Patton Oswalt
#29. All of us that have teams want to pick the right people. I've thought a lot about that. In the NFL, we've got 13 scouts traveling the country. We're trying to pick 22 year-olds coming out of college who will be successful in the NFL. It's very hard to do. What I've learned is it's always character first. - Author: Joe Gibbs
Sixteen Year Olds quotes by Joe Gibbs
#30. We expect forty-year-olds to have grown up at some point, and to be engaged and adult and take responsibility, and doing nothing would seem to go against that. - Author: Noah Baumbach
Sixteen Year Olds quotes by Noah Baumbach
#31. I would tell 17-year-olds to be proud of who you are. Don't try to change yourself for others. Focus on school and your future. Boys and friends will come and go, just focus on you and your future. - Author: Lea Michele
Sixteen Year Olds quotes by Lea Michele
#32. Wyatt Earp had been born, and born again, and now there would be a third life, for the iron fist that had seized his soul in childhood had lost its grip at last. The long struggle for control was over, and in its place, he found a wordless acceptance of a truth he'd always known. He was bred to this anger. It had been in him since the cradle. He'd never bullied neighbors or beaten a horse. He'd never punched the front teeth out of a six-year-old's mouth or hit a woman until she begged. But he was no better than his father, and never had been. He was far, far worse. - Author: Mary Doria Russell
Sixteen Year Olds quotes by Mary Doria Russell
#33. Teaching 23-year-olds in an MBA programme strikes me as largely a waste of time. They lack the background of experience. You can teach them skills - accounting and what have you - but you can't teach them management. - Author: Peter Drucker
Sixteen Year Olds quotes by Peter Drucker
#34. Aideen groaned. "Don't judge me, term started back on Monday and the kids are drivin' me insane already."

I raised my eyebrows. "You teach second class kids, they're all cuties."

Aideen growled, "Those eight year olds can be animals, do you hear me? Animals! I caught two boys forcin' another boy to eat fuckin' glue while givin' him a wedgie yesterday. They're evil, I'm tellin' you. - Author: L.A. Casey
Sixteen Year Olds quotes by L.A. Casey
#35. I've fought for more than three years. I was just thirteen when I started. I'm sixteen now, though that fact, like so many facts, has been deliberately obscured in the secret accounts we've kept.
I'm a sixteen-year-old kid named Jake Berenson, and I am the leader of the Animorphs. - Author: Katherine Applegate
Sixteen Year Olds quotes by Katherine Applegate
#36. I don't want Elsa to know that I am going to die because all seven-year-olds deserve superheroes, Marcel. And one of their superpowers ought to be that they can't get cancer. - Author: Fredrik Backman
Sixteen Year Olds quotes by Fredrik Backman
#37. I'm constantly snatching my books out of the hands of precocious ten-year-olds who are simply too young to read them, despite parents insisting that dear Octavia has a reading age of 28. I remember trying to read 'In Cold Blood' at the age of twelve, and realising that just because you can read book doesn't mean you should. - Author: Meg Rosoff
Sixteen Year Olds quotes by Meg Rosoff
#38. My dad's an actor. Ever since I was little, I'd watch him do it, and I was always very into it. I got into when I was about two years old. I started out with print work, doing modeling and stuff. Then I got into commercials and TV. Once I started, I loved doing it. It's just something that I've continuted over the years, and I love it. - Author: Corbin Bleu
Sixteen Year Olds quotes by Corbin Bleu
#39. What can you say about a twenty-five year old girl who died? That she was beautiful and brilliant. That she loved Mozart and Bach. The Beatles. And me. - Author: Erich Segal
Sixteen Year Olds quotes by Erich Segal

Sixteen Year Olds quotes by Kirk Hammett
#44. I'm at my 3 year-olds year-end concert. It's full of very off-key, mostly unfocused children, but this father is still beaming. Must be how God feels on Sunday. - Author: Mark Hart
Sixteen Year Olds quotes by Mark Hart
#45. They are surprisingly tall
eight-year-olds. They are surprisingly like real people. Of course your own babies are always real to you, they are all there from the word go, but even strangers' children look like proper people by the aged of eight ... - Author: Anne Enright
Sixteen Year Olds quotes by Anne Enright
#46. And anyway, the truth isn't all that great. I mean, what's the truth? Planes falling out of the sky. Buses blowing up and ripping little kids into millions of pieces. Twelve-year-olds raping people and then shooting them in the head so they can't tell. I can't watch the news anymore or look at the papers. It's like whoever sits up there in Heaven has this big bag of really crappy stuff, and once or twice a day she or he reaches in and sprinkles a little bit of it over the world and makes everything crazy, like fairy dust that's past its expiration date. - Author: Michael Thomas Ford
Sixteen Year Olds quotes by Michael Thomas Ford
