George Harrison once said, “If you don’t know where you’re going, any road’ll take you there.” Your high school years are going to be really confusing. Stress, decision making, and pressure will take over a big part of your life. Many people suggest that, “you should be young while you can.” It’s great to be prepared for the future, but it’s also okay if you’re not. This quote could mean just that. If you don’t know where you’re going, as far as a career choice goes, any road will lead you to success if you put your mind to it. For this reason, this quote is one of my favorite quotes.

“I am and always will be the optimist, the hoper of far flung hopes, and the dreamer of improbable dreams,” said The Doctor from the TV show Doctor Who. Freshman, Katherine Interiano, says this is one of her favorite quotes.

Freshman Rocco Pecoraro tells us about his favorite quote that was said by his cousin Marcus Ruta. “Always be your best self.” The quote speaks for itself.

“I don’t want to be typical me. I want to be unpredictable,” Veronika Alvarez quoted. “I want to put a smile on everyone’s face and not just have a name for myself as anything other than ‘Veronika’,” she explained. The quote basically states that she wants to be recognized as someone that doesn’t have a title or name for herself. She wants to be spontaneous, unexpected, and surprising.

A senior here at HHS, Julio Aybar confesses his favorite quote. “You can either be two things in this world, somebody or nobody.” After he shared, he said, “I want to be somebody.” In life, you can only accomplish what you allow yourself to do so.
