Teenage Wisdom

So: I'm sitting at 1:15 A.M. with seven teenage girls and my best friend Rachel (also a teacher) in the computer room at our school at a Girl's Overnight Leadership Development event and I've asked the girls to share some things with you.

Abby: "When in doubt, just chuck it!"
Ali: "I believe that 'YES' is the only thing." (quoting e e cummings)
Alexis: "Love everyone."
Talia: "Violence might be the answer." (Ms. Nadow: "WHAT?!") Talia: "People always say violence isn't the answer except for the two times in your life that it is the answer."
Jenna: "Hold on."
Kelley: "Be yourself and follow your heart."
Maria: "Boys are dumb."
Rachel: (under her breath) "Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy." (quoting Benjamin Franklin)

Thought you'd enjoy these!
