The Top Ten

1 Remember that as a teenager you are at the last stage in your life when you will be happy to hear that the phone is for you. (Fran Lebowitz)
2 It's all that the young can do for the old, to shock them and keep them up to date. (George Bernard Shaw)

I did much of this to my grandfather. He'd probably flip out if he could see me now. - PositronWildhawk

3 The only way to stay young is to avoid old people. (James D. Watson)
4 I have been in a youth hostel. I know what they're like. You are put in a kitchen with seventeen venture scouts with behavioral difficulties and made to wash swedes. (Victoria Wood)
5 It is better to waste one's youth than to do nothing with it at all. (Georges Courteline)

No they aren't the same. Haven't we heard some successful persons say "We wasted our youth on serious work and labor and struggled with life just to make ourselves what we are today". That means they didn't enjoy their youth like the average teenager (like partying, visiting friends, sleep overs, fashion trends and so on... ) and were busy with their work from an early age. - Kiteretsunu

Wait… aren't they the same thing…? - PetSounds

6 Youth is wasted on the young. I'm 52 now and I just can't stay up all night like I did. (Camille Paglia)
7 The invention of the teenager was a mistake. Once you identify a period of life in which people get to stay out late but don't have to pay taxes; naturally no one wants to live any other way. (Judith Martin)
8 Everybody at my age should be issued with a 2lb fresh salmon. If you see someone young, beautiful and happy, you should slap them as hard as you can with it. (Richard Griffiths)
9 Being young is not having any money; being young is not minding not having any money. (Katherine Whitehorn)
10 What music is more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say? (Logan Pearshall Smith)
