Text Quotes
Like probably a lot of people, I came away from watching films like ‘Miss Representation’ and ‘Half the Sky’ with the realization that the battle for women’s rights is not over, especially not globally, and that the moral imperative of our century is to achieve full rights for everyone regardless of gender.  (Adora Svitak Quotes) By creating so many illusory images of physical perfection, whether on store aisles or storefront ads, magazine covers or TV shows, we speak more to the profit margins of companies than the self-esteem of today’s girls.  (Adora Svitak Quotes) There are lots of different interpretations of the word ‘prodigy.’ My own is of someone who is talented and tries to help other children. So in that respect I could be called one, although I don’t think I’ll go off the rails  (Adora Svitak Quotes) By bringing current events into the classroom, everyday discussion, and social media, maybe we don’t need to wait for our grandchildren’s questions to remind us we should have paid more attention to current events.  (Adora Svitak Quotes) In many countries, schools are preparing students to participate in a democratic environment; yet schools themselves tend to be extremely autocratic, with all high-level decisions being made by adults.  (Adora Svitak Quotes) For kids like me, being called childish can be a frequent occurrence. Every time we make irrational demands, exhibit irresponsible behavior, or display any other signs of being normal American citizens, we are called childish.  (Adora Svitak Quotes) America, you’re sending girls a mixed message. On one hand, you’re saying to have positive body image and love who we are; on the other, we’re being marketed makeup and clothing that obviously turns us into someone different.  (Adora Svitak Quotes) I realise I’m still a child, though I do feel older. I recently did an on-line test called ‘What’s Your True Age?’ My result was 50-60 years old  (Adora Svitak Quotes) The unsaid message of that endless rack of juniors’ pushup bras? No matter what size you are, it still isn’t good enough  (Adora Svitak Quotes) I wouldn’t call myself a geek, but I do sometimes teach Mommy and Daddy stuff about computers. And I do watch TV, but only informative programmes like the news and documentaries  (Adora Svitak Quotes) Prom has all the elements of a popular story. It reeks of all-Americanness, tension, drama. It has romance. Pretty dresses. Dancing. Limos. High school. Coming of age  (Adora Svitak Quotes) Learning between grown-ups and kids should be reciprocal. The reality, unfortunately, is a little different, and it has a lot to do with trust, or a lack of it  (Adora Svitak Quotes) Success on the front of women’s rights will look like a world not only with obvious advances - where no girl is denied access to education, for instance - but also one with more subtle changes in how we regard gender and gender stereotypes  (Adora Svitak Quotes) To try to teach ignoring technology is to ignore the progress that we have made over the last century. If school is preparation for the real world - a real world that is increasingly technology-driven - then to ignore technology is to become obsolete  (Adora Svitak Quotes) We all love people who give credit to others for their success. Companies would probably do better with CEOs who didn’t blow their own horn and ask for ridiculous salaries and new yachts every year  (Adora Svitak Quotes) I would love it if we made more comparisons between current issues and issues of the past. Maybe we’d realize that sometimes ‘current issues’ and ‘past issues’ are one and the same. Our world’s people still fight over natural resources, kill in the name of religion, occupy regions and give them up - just as we did ‘so long ago.’  (Adora Svitak Quotes) If I had my way, I’d end all wars and poverty. We should all be more aware of what’s going on in the world around us and less ignorant.  (Adora Svitak Quotes) The only time I felt I was different was when one of my friends said, ‘I hate reading’ and I stared at her like, ‘What kind of an alien creature are you?!’ Because it was so incomprehensible to me that someone could dislike reading! That really started my desire to help other children love reading and writing.  (Adora Svitak Quotes) Since the age of four, I’ve been exploring what I can do with the written word: everything from championing literacy and youth voice to raising awareness about world hunger.  (Adora Svitak Quotes) I am writing to make sure that kids don’t lose very important traits like curiosity that can drive social change because oftentimes I think parents emphasise more on doing well in school, which is important, but perhaps that sometimes comes at the cost of a child’s natural curiosity.  (Adora Svitak Quotes) I cannot emphasize enough the importance of family encouragement - not just for me, but for everyone.  (Adora Svitak Quotes) Our words can have power that we don’t think we have in everyday life. Anyone can make a difference!  (Adora Svitak Quotes) Students read for tests and because their parents ask them to, but I think it’s very important to tell children that you can read for fun, too, and to understand human spirit. It builds empathy.  (Adora Svitak Quotes) The current concept of prom just seems so empty. Teenagers get dressed up to go to a dance at a fancy location. It encourages social inclusion or exclusion based on your ability or inability to snag a date.  (Adora Svitak Quotes) Enthusiasm just creates bubbles; it doesn’t keep them from popping  (Adora Svitak Quotes) I realise I’m still a child, though I do feel older  (Adora Svitak Quotes) History is made every day. The challenge is getting everyone to pay attention to it  (Adora Svitak Quotes) In order to make anything a reality, you have to dream about it first  (Adora Svitak Quotes) You must lend an ear today, because we are the leaders of tomorrow  (Adora Svitak Quotes) To show that you truly care, you listen  (Adora Svitak Quotes)
