I think Japans work really hard, and when they have a chance to listen to music, they just go crazy.

So it’d be a perfect group for them.

I always hated high-school shows and high-school movies, because they were always about the cool kids. It was always about dating and sex, and all the popular kids, and the good-looking kids.

I read a lot, I always read. I like to be inside a story.

Julianne Moore
I had a band with David Gates. There was just a lot of opportunity at that time. But I left for Los Angeles the week after I graduated high school, and I actually left to try to get into the advertising business. That was really why I went out to L.A. My music career was almost an accident.

The Spice Girls were the life preserver to my high school years.

Sophia Bush

Mark Mothersbaugh
I was in high school, trying to get out of high school. The only thing slowing me up was grades.

When I was younger, I used to be the cheater. But I’m not talking about going all the way…. I wasn’t doing that in high school! I’d have boyfriends and then spring break would come around and I’d be a little bit naughty.
H.P. Lovecraft is for the summer between junior and senior years in high school. Cosmic fear hits you about then anyway — you realize you’ll soon have to Get a Real Job or Go To College or Both and in those days, Be Drafted. A dose of Cthulhu helps put these feelings in perspective.

All of my friends who have younger siblings who are going to college or high school – my number one piece of advice is: You should learn how to program.

I remember when the O.J. verdict was read; at my high school, all of the teachers were like, “We are stopping class right now,” and turned it on and we watched it. There were people coming out of their classrooms, like, “Yeah!” Some people were like, “Nooo.” I was in Spanish class.

Thomas McDonell
In high school, I had to hide my comic book side, my nerd side from the civilian world so they wouldn’t categorize me. They would try to marginalize me for what I like. I tried to give it up, believe me. I tried to kick the habit. But there’s too much I liked about it to give it up completely.

I got to sing solo in the junior choir when I was 10 or 11 and won a competition, and my sister’s piano playing improved to a certain level. One time my sister and I worked together. The first song we ever sang in High School was Rags to Riches by Tony Bennett.
Gordon Lightfoot
When I was in high school, there was ‘Superbad’ and ‘The Girl Next Door’ and ‘Wedding Crashers’ and all these great movies. You hope to be a part of something that’s smart, funny and in that Todd Phillips-vein. You want to make something like ‘Superbad.’ That movie was so good and so funny.

Saul Bellow
I remember my choir teacher in high school told me, ‘When in doubt, sing loud.’ I’m a terrible singer, but I always auditioned for the musicals, and would get cast in them because I really would just put it all out there.

Stephen King
When I was in high school, I read the whole thing about Don King and he had this quote that said, “Set yourself on fire and the world will pay to watch you burn.” I thought that was the most amazing thing I’d ever heard and I wrote it on my wall.

Dan Savage
My mom and dad met at Anaheim High School.

Craig Brewer
Music was a way of rebelling against the whole rah-rah high school thing.
Adam Levine
I couldn’t help but to think back to my classmates at Thomas Jefferson High School in San Antonio.

The difference was opportunity.

I was really short in high school. I was stuck on the bench in the baseball team, so I just thought I’d try out theater, and that was the last time I did sports.
Casey Affleck
I was in this public high school in Princeton, and it had this topnotch jazz program – if you were a musician of any kind of caliber, your holy grail was to be in that orchestra. It was that claim to fame of the school, of the town, other than the university. But it was better than the university band.
Damien Chazelle
I’ve never done acid, finding it hard to go willingly to a place that could be frightening, hellish, and totally beyond my control. A place much like high school.
Libba Bray
I did spend a year in high school being obsessed with Fleetwood Mac.
Joanna Newsom
Obviously, being a diehard Mets fan, my passion is a given, but I also love playing baseball. I hadn’t been able to participate since high school, when the game became a little too fast for me.
Jim Breuer
My high-school papers, my college-application essays, read like Norman Mailer packed in a crunchy-peanut-butter sandwich.
James Wolcott
I also played two years of high school football but I wasn’t very, how shall I say it, talented.
Kyle Chandler
I was accepted to multiple fashion schools. But I had two kids when I was a teenager. My kids’ mom already had two kids when she was still in high school. So I had to be in the streets early. Instead of going to fashion school, I took the street route.
Westside Gunn
Of the six people who started PayPal, four had built bombs in high school.
Peter Thiel
I was probably the first kid in my high school to go to Yale. I applied almost as a lark. Then, when I got there, I was the dumbest person in your class.
Maya Lin
In the state of Wisconsin it’s mandated that teachers in the social sciences and hard sciences have to start giving environmental education by the first grade, through high school.
Gaylord Nelson
A rumor that followed me forever was that my family was in the mafia. For years I had to live with it. They’d call me the mafia princess, so I rolled with it for the rest of high school. People even joke about it today.
Giuliana Rancic
I took six months off, finished high school, and hung out with friends.
Devon Sawa
I enjoyed high school and college, and I think I learned a lot, but that was not really my focus. My focus was on trying to figure out what businesses to start.
Steve Case
High school teachers who want to get reluctant readers turned around need to give the students some say in the reading list. Make it collaborative: The students will feel ownership, and everyone will dig in.
Dave Eggers
You want to help gay kids, you have to reach them in middle school and high school, when they’re being bullied.
Dan Savage
My senior year of high school, when I was getting recruited for college, my dad goes to me, ‘You can become an Olympic champion.’ And that’s the first time that I’d heard someone else say that to me. I was like, ‘Uh, are you talking to me?’
Ryan Lochte
I always wanted to be in the NBA, but I never really thought about being the No. 1 pick until high school. So once it happened, it’s like a dream come true and more.
Andrew Wiggins
If Eastlake High School were the universe, I would be one of the moons circling Planet Emma, constantly hidden by her shadow, and glad to be there. Nash Hudson would be one of the stars: too bright to look at, too hot to touch and at the center of his own solar system.
Rachel Vincent
When I went to high school in Australia, I was exposed to textbooks that outlined evolutionary ideas – such as ape-like creatures turning into people. I recognized the conflict between evolutionary ideas and a literal reading of the book of Genesis.
Ken Ham
It was spring break, so the theater was always packed with high schools students. It was an animal house. I wanted to burn the place down.
Haruki Murakami
I took an estimated two thousand years of high school French, and when I finally got to France, I discovered that I didn’t know one single phrase that was actually useful in a real-life French situation.
Dave Barry
I play basketball all the time. Me and my band play every week on the road. That’s something that I’ve never really given up since high school.
Josh Turner
I actually built a tiny computer as a junior high school project.
Mitch Kapor
I was in every band class I could get in, like after school jazz band and marching band, and that’s where I really learned to read music from elementary all the way through junior high and high school.
Chad Smith
I want the younger kids, the basketball players in high school and college to hear from me and let them know that when you come to the league, this is what happens and this is how I feel as an NBA player. And it’s not all peachy keen.
Kevin Durant
My brother was an improviser. He’s now a lobbyist, but he used to perform improv in the city when he was in high school, and one of the funniest guys I know to this day.
Jake M. Johnson
I’ve been playing basketball since forever. The highlight of my high school career was scoring 51 points with 13 threes in a game.
Riff Raff
I’ve always been a creative speller and never achieved good grades in school. I graduated from high school but didn’t have the opportunity to attend college, so I did what young women my age did at the time – I married.
Debbie Macomber
If you’re 29, there has been no global warming for your entire adult life. If you’re graduating high school, there has been no global warming since you entered first grade. There has been no global warming this century. None
Mark Steyn
I first saw Dead Man in high school, and it changed everything. That movie was like a memory to me – I would get things that occurred in that movie confused with my actual life.
Willis Earl Beal
My education at Baron Byng High School was excellent, with dedicated masters (boys and girls were separate).
Rudolph A. Marcus
Work-based learning is a game changer. It’s like test driving a career, and I have seen it in action with our registered apprenticeship programs for high school students.
Kim Reynolds
Every time I hear a politician mention the word ‘stimulus,’ my mind flashes back to high school biology class, when I touched battery wires to a dead frog to make it twitch.
Robert Kiyosaki
In my family we got up in the mornings around three o’clock and went out to the barns to bring the cows in and milk. In high school I milked about twenty cows every morning and about twenty in the afternoon when I got home. I have wonderful memories from those early days when my parent’s influence was so strong.
Billy Graham
I worked as a belly dancer at a Greek restaurant senior year in high school.
Jessie James Decker
My mom passed away a day before high school started, and her dream was for me to be a full rock and roll guy, and play drums in a band.
Travis Barker
While I was in high school, I started working professionally and got an agent.
Charlene Tilton
The year after I graduated from high school, they came to shoot Mr. and Mrs. Bridge in Kansas City.
Jason Wiles
Welcome to adulthood,” she said. “It sucks as much as high school.
Sarah Dessen
When I was in high school, I remember seeing girls crying in the bathroom every Monday about what they did that weekend. I never wanted to be that girl crying in the bathroom.
Taylor Swift
There was a girl I loved in high school – but never spoke to. Cut to my five-year reunion: I’m an entirely different person.
Dane Cook
High school isn’t necessarily the best time of your life.
Jenna Ushkowitz
You know, I was a nerdy kid going through high school, and then I got to college and that all vanished. I mean, a lot of my good friends – when we were in high school, we would never have been able to hang out together because we were in such different cliques or whatever. Now, who cares?
Brandon Sanderson
When I was in high school I moved from the big city to a tiny village of 500 people in Vermont. It was like The Waltons!
Daphne Zuniga
In Texas a high school student was arrested for bringing what authorities thought was a bomb to school but turned out to be a clock. Now the kid is in bigger trouble for carrying a device that could bring Texas into the future.
Conan O’Brien
I suppose he’s making a real fashion statement, but this is high school. You’re not supposed to be real. You’re supposed to be enough like everyone else to get through and out into the waiting world.
Elizabeth Scott
I grew up in a suburb of Baltimore with an extremely high concentration of Jewish families – where the Levys and Cohens in the high school yearbook went on for pages, where I could count far more temples than I ever could churches. Anti-Semitism, in our cultural biodome, was mostly an abstract concept.
Jeffrey Kluger
When I was in High School I fell for pretty much any girl I ever met. But I was so desperate that I couldn’t get any of them because they sensed my desperation! After many, many years, I learned to relax and just be myself.
Jack Black
In high school my mother advised me to make my last lines into titles. It was very good advice.
Rachel Zucker
I could run, but I was throwing 93 mph coming out of high school.
Shemar Moore
Most people experience history as one damn fact after another in high school. But if you can wonder, “Wow, what if the US hadn’t gotten involved in World War II?”, you can become enthralled by the imaginary possibilities.
Gavriel David Rosenfeld
My entire high school career – my entire school career – I’ve been like three feet taller than everyone in my grade.
Karlie Kloss
I had a high school English teacher who made me really work at writing. And once, when I got an assignment back, she’d written: ‘This is so good, Andrew. This should be published!’ That made a big impression on me.
Andrew Clements
Now, a 45-degree angle is not something we deal with in finance. It’s something you see in a high school geometry class. Performance like that has never been recorded in human history.
Harry Markopolos
Particular individuals who might never consider dropping out if they were in a different high school might decide to drop out if they attended a school where many boys and girls did so.
James S. Coleman
I’m visiting my high school. Every half year I do the exams, and then this year I’m going to graduate.
Daniela Hantuchova
No one would have picked me out in high school and said, ‘This guy is going to be in show business.’ I don’t have any of the talents you would normally associate with show business.
Jerry Springer
The total loss of hearing was a process that lasted more than a decade, but it was sufficiently gradual for me to attend Sydney Boys’ High School and to profit from the teaching there.
John Cornforth
I messed around in high school, but I pretty much put it away until I did a television show in San Francisco.
Gary Cole
Personality wise, we are all kindred spirits. I’ve said this before; if we [with Mike Mangini ] ever went to high school together we would have been friends. He is just one of us! We felt that immediate connect.
John Petrucci
I remember being in high school, and you had to draw those lines and define yourself. I don’t think when I was in high school I would have been willing to admit that I liked the Shins. I was into TSOL and Black Flag. I probably would have listened to the Shins secretly in my bedroom.
James Mercer
Before I was ever in high school, I had dark circles under my eyes.
Benicio Del Toro
A lot of the Egyptian community is made up of doctors, pharmacists and engineers. All throughout high school I took sciences, but eventually I chose to pursue what I truly want to do.
Mena Massoud
Theatre aside, my penchant for the extended monologue began with my reading of Browning’s dramatic monologues, in high school. My inclination to adopt the form for prose was confirmed by Richard Howard’s book of dramatic monologues, Untitled Subjects.
Norman Lock
I still remember discovering the classic rock station when I was in high school and being totally blown away by it.
Stephanie D’Abruzzo
I love kimonos because you can just throw them on over anything. Ever since I got my first kimono from Lane Bryant in high school and thought, ‘This is amazing; I can wear it with everything!’
Early college high schools in North Carolina and across the country show us that challenge – not remediation – is an approach to education that works.
Mike Easley
There are a million rules for being a girl. There are a million things you have to do to get through each day. High school has things that can trip you up, ruin you, people say one thing and mean another, and you have to know all the rules, you have to know what you can and can’t do.
Elizabeth Scott
My parents were kids when I was born. My mother was 16. My father was 17, and they got married in high school. And they split a few years later. When they split was when all that was happening also, and he – they were just coming into themselves. But they remained friends.
Mahershala Ali
You don’t know who theВ next groupВ isВ that’sВ unpopular.В The Bill of Rights isn’tВ for the promВ queen. The bill of rights isn’tВ for the highВ schoolВ quarterback. The Bill of Rights isВ for the leastВ amongВ us. The Bill of RightsВ isВ for minorities. The Bill of Rights is forВ thoseВ who have minority opinions.
Rand Paul
One day when I was like 9, I heard the Beatles on the radio, and I asked my dad who they were. He told me they were the best band in the world, and I became obsessed. He started giving me their albums in sequential order, and I listened to them – and only them – until I was probably in high school.
Lukas Haas
The guys in high school were like, “You’ve got a nice voice; you should keep singing,” but I never honestly thought that one day I’d be a singer. When you’re young, you don’t see the signs.
Victoria Legrand
Trust me, high school ends. You graduate and get away from all the people you never want to see again-it’s all good.
Chad Michael Murray
I barely got out of high school and I look back at my life often and go, “Wow, this was awesome!”
Jamie Lee Curtis
My dad wanted me to play football so bad, he took me to Washington High School on the west side of Atlanta because they were number one. They never lost.
Young Thug
My dad never graduated high school. He was a printing salesman. We lived in a two-bedroom, one-bath house in St. Louis Park, Minnesota. We weren’t rich – but we felt secure.
Al Franken
Everybody remembers what it’s like to be in high school. We really never leave those years behind.
Nikki DeLoach
Toby Keith, when you wake up tomorrow there’s still going to be liberals in the world, mexicans and blacks, Muslims and Jews and high school graduates…and everyone else who hates your music.
Maureen McCormick
My favorite subject was either English or History. I had a really awesome high school education.
Ian Harding
I have a group of friends in my life, and we all give each other something different. I’ve known my two closest friends for many years. One is a friend from high school, and the other I met right after college. My deep, deep friends remind me every day of the good parts of my personality.
Brooke Shields
I went to Mission Bay High School. Me and my brother, we both went there.
Vic Fuentes
I loved to make people laugh in high school, and then I found I loved being on stage in front of people. I’m sure that’s some kind of ego trip or a way to overcome shyness. I was very kind of shy and reserved, so there’s a way to be on stage and be performing and balance your life out.
Steve Martin
Well I am from Annapolis Maryland. I went to High school in Baltimore, but I grew up in Annapolis. It was a cute town. We lived on a waterfront community. It was good, even though I don’t really fit the preppy boater kind of style.
Christian Siriano
Do I think it’s OK to fight authority as long as you’re only talking about the high school teacher? No.
John Mellencamp
I started running track when I was 13 years old, as a freshman in high school. I ran the 400 meters, which is a very tough race and a full sprint.
Norah O’Donnell
I think things get a lot better after high school. I think the ones that struggle during that time tend to have better experiences after.
Molly Shannon
I think the initial reason why I became interested in farming is that I wanted to be outdoors. I’ve always enjoyed being outdoors. And so, I looked around and when I was at high school, probably 14 or so, my parents through friends arranged for me to be able to go work on farms on the weekend.
Ian Wilmut
I’ve been a storyteller all my life. When I was in high school, I used to amuse myself by driving through the woods at night and see how long it would be before I scared the pants off my friends – and if I could do it before I scared myself.
Patricia Briggs
I wrote poetry in middle school and high school and even through college. It was bad. I just don’t think I’m very good at writing poetry. I mean, the distillation, I think, is hard for me, but I love poetry.
Jesmyn Ward
I was so deeply involved in music, I had already outgrown all the pressure of high school cliques and gossip.
Alicia Keys
High school for me was not all that fun. I think it’s a lot more fun after when you realize that high school ends, and everything that’s important at that time is sort of not important if people don’t like your jeans or whatever. It doesn’t matter.
Leighton Meester
After high school, I was going to move out to L.A. and try to pursue my dreams of acting. My parents said, “Thats fine. We support you, but you have to go to school”, which was fine because I’m a studious person anyway, I enjoy it.
Josie Loren
I know what you’re thinking: why is Chris Rock bagging groceries? But I dropped out of high school in the tenth grade, so if I couldn’t tell jokes this is exactly what I’d be doing.
Chris Rock
Hollywood is just like high school. The popular people only like the other popular people. And the thing is, some people aren’t nice – or they’re nice, but only to your face, not elsewhere.
Amanda Seyfried
If you did go to high school and then college, there’s definitely a solidarity with someone that is from your hometown and knows your mom, and all that stuff. There’s this weird politeness that we have, as a society. You don’t want to make it hard for anybody.
John Krasinski
Your dynamic with everyone will change when you graduate high school. High school is a pit of despair. It’s a swirling tornado of insecurities and there’s really nothing good about it.
Kristen Bell
In high school, I came to realize I had a second-hand faith, derived from my parents and family background. I had no actual reasons for believing it.
Nancy Pearcey
I am an unconventional beauty. I grew up in a high school where if you didn’t have a nose job and money and if you weren’t thin, you weren’t cool, popular, beautiful. I was always told that I wasn’t pretty enough to be on television.
Lea Michele
Yeah. When I was in high school I used to do stupid video edits. I would hook-up two VCRs or three VCRs and do film edits for the basketball team and stuff like that because I was always just into doing that.
Jesse Lacey
I have teenagers, so I listen to a lot of music. They turn me on to great music.
Katey Sagal
I only went a year to high school. I should have been in high school, but I was in a band, and when you’re successful doing that – well, you aren’t too likely to go back.
Peter Noone
In 1765, Parliament passed the Stamp Act, which, as any American high school student can tell you, was an act that apparently had something to do with stamps.
Dave Barry
It’s funny how all of this has worked out – I wasn’t popular in high school, but now every drunken guy in the United States wants to be my pal. They all want to buy me a shot, and pretty soon I’m throwing up.
Jimmy Kimmel
After high school, I had $2,000 saved, and I packed everything I could into my ’95 Nissan Sentra with no air-conditioning, and I drove out to L.A.
Emayatzy E. Corinealdi
I am an emotional pitcher, but I can control it. When I was in high school, I was a little immature and I let my emotions get the best of me.
Justin Verlander
The higher my GPA gets the more I realize high school is useless
Megan McCafferty
My grandmother was a teacher, my sister was a teacher, my daughter was a teacher and is now a superintendent in northern California, and my son-in-law is a high school principal. I am surrounded.
Loni Anderson
My only real insecurities in high school were having such long legs and thick hair — things I’m so very grateful for now.
Shailene Woodley
If you enjoyed high school, you were probably a psychopath or a cheerleader. Or possibly both.
Jenny Lawson
I was home schooled in high school but was definitely the nerd in middle school.
Nicole Anderson
Everybody has a way to get to college. You study in high school, you do your work. There are always grants or loans that can be available. I guarantee you – if you want it, you can get it. Don’t close the door on yourself.
Muggsy Bogues
When I was in high school I experimented sexually. The experiment was to never have sex with anybody no matter how hard I tried. Success! Hypothesis confirmed.
Demetri Martin
Even in high school, I had friends that I didn’t know were gay until years later. I’d find out on Facebook or something and be like, ‘Oh, that explains some things,’ or ‘Wow, no wonder they were so cool.’
Kellan Lutz
High school is neither a democracy nor a dictatorship – nor, contrary to popular belief, an anarchic state. High school is a divine-right monarchy. And when the queen goes on vacation, things change.
John Green
You will NOT make $60,000 a year right out of high school. You won’t be a vice-president with a car phone until you earn both.
Bill Gates
High School made me realize that the people who say they will never change, are always the ones who change the most.
John Green
The formula for achieving middle-class success is simple: Finish high school; don’t have a child before the age of 20; and get married before having the child.
Larry Elder
David Lynch was actually the one who first inspired me to become a filmmaker when I was in high school. His films just took me to that dream place that lifts you out of the norm, out of the everyday life, and that is kind of what allured me.
Paul Dalio
Well, when I was younger, in high school, I started out smoking pot. Which escalated into taking acid on a regular basis, which escalated into selling acid. And then I started, when I went to college, I started doing opiates.
John Wozniak
I was just this chubby little Indian kid who looked like a nerd. I didn’t have a ton of academic skills. It wasn’t until I was in high school that I was like, “I guess I like writing dialogue.” So that’s how I got into it.
Mindy Kaling
My mother gave me a pair of diamond earrings when I was 13. It symbolised becoming a teenager. I also remember getting a collection of costume jewellery from my grandmother when I was in high school.
Erin Wasson
I always enjoyed writing. I did playlets in high school, I did radio shows in college. That’s one of the reasons I went down to Second City, because you could do acting and writing.
Dan Castellaneta
You still remember your SAT scores. And everybody else does too. Everybody’s forgotten everything about themselves, everything else about high school. They remember their SAT scores.
John Katzman
I’m at the transition place myself, still playing high school girls but moving to a stage when I’m playing older roles and going to the places of stillness and wisdom and knowledge and weight. It’s exciting and scary.
Tatiana Maslany
In 100 years we have gone from teaching Latin and Greek in High School to teaching remedial English in college.
Joseph Sobran
I love “The Autobiography of Malcolm X.” That was like the only black book we read in high school…
Junot Diaz
I got along better with the guys than with the girls. Only two girls came up to talk to me. Later I found out they were telling their boyfriends, ‘If you talk to her, I’ll kill you.’ It’s always rough with that high school thing.
Christina Aguilera
I get an adrenaline rush from “playing with the big boys.” I consider myself a tomboy and was an athlete in high school, so I like to “talk shop” anyway. But it’s fun to actually get paid to cover the NFL with all these incredible former players and sports anchors.
Megan Alexander
We spend our whole lives recovering from high school.
Paula Danziger
Sarah Palin is now the guy who hangs out in the high school parking lot, showing off his car, five years after he graduated.
Rachel Maddow
I was born in San Antonio, TX, but moved to Lakewood, CO in elementary school. Then, I moved to Valley Center, CA in high school.
Katie Leclerc
I definitely wasn’t a perfect person in high school. That is the time to make mistakes, especially with significant others and also with friends.
Joe Keery
The big reason why I became an actor in the first place was to communicate. I never acted in high school…I was desperate to communicate.
Bruce Dern
I look back at pictures of myself and I remember thinking, “I was so fat when I was growing up. I was 165 pounds when I graduated from high school. I was a mess”.
Viola Davis
You need only do three things in this country to avoid poverty – finish high school, marry before having a child, and marry after the age of 20. Only 8 percent of the families who do this are poor; 79 percent of those who fail to do this are poor.
William Galston
When I came into the industry I started with acting and I did drama during junior high and high school. I fell into dancing as a hobby, but whenever you need work, you try out different things. So I booked a lot of jobs for dancing and it kept rolling and rolling.
Harry Shum, Jr.
Our early days – our audiences were always very sparse. We played very obscure places in very obscure parts of the world, mainly Kansas. We played frat parties, we played high school proms, we played clubs.
Phil Ehart
Ultimately life is disease, death and oblivion. It’s still better than high school.
Dan Savage
When I was in high school I was 250 pounds.
Adam Lambert
When I was in high school, I read all of Neil Simon’s plays.
Darius Rucker
I was very driven in high school. I worked a bunch of odd jobs. I never partied. I never drank. I was just a theater geek who was obsessed with movies.
Aaron Paul
Look, we ought to do this for our kids… We ought to have a high school so that every kid who grows up here – they’re all our kids – gets a good high school education.
Robert D. Putnam
Your chemistry high school teacher lied to you when they told you that there was such a thing as a vacuum, that you could take space and move every particle out of it.
Adam Riess
I had a Ford F-250. It was a big ol’ farm truck, but it wasn’t a rig. That’s about the biggest I’ve ever driven. That’s what I drove back and forth to high school. I was a poor guy, and it was a truck that my uncle owned and let me drive because I had no money.
Nathan Fillion
Without willing it, I had gone from being ignorant of being ignorant to being aware of being aware. And the worst part of my awareness was that I didn’t know what I was aware of. I knew I knew very little, but I was certain that the things I had yet to learn wouldn’t be taught to me at George Washington High School.
Maya Angelou
Before I got through high school I had attended 22 different schools. In the time before I was well acquainted with the latest school, I would amuse myself by drawing and found that I was pretty good at it.
Marc Davis
I went to a performance of ‘The Crucible’ at the Guthrie when I was a sophomore in high school, and I knew right away that that’s what I wanted to do.
John Hawkes
When I was in high school, I was dating this girl and wanted to make her birthday really special. I showed up early to school and went around to every single one of her classes and left a rose with her teachers. Each rose had a note with a little inside joke.
Dave Franco
The first time I acted was in high school in Florida, and when I heard that applause I felt so alive and felt that electricity go up my spine.
Angela Bassett
Math and science fields are not the only areas where we see the United States lagging behind. Less than 1 percent of American high school students study the critical foreign languages of Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Korean or Russian, combined.
Cathy McMorris Rodgers
After the NBA and ABA merged, players could come out after high school. Still, there were only a few cases prior to Kevin Garnett coming out in 1995, so Nike and the other companies were only involved in the college game.
Sonny Vaccaro
I was a telemarketer in my senior year at high school. I had to sell prosthetic limbs to paralysed veterans. I was making 150 bucks a week and it was horrible.
Big Sean
In high school, I definitely fancied myself an intense guy, which is so lame.
Rob Delaney
I hated high school. Ugh. I couldn’t wait until it was over so I could sleep in. In college, I made sure all my classes were in the afternoon. I hated getting up in the morning.
Mario Cantone
Virginia Woolf’s great novel, ‘Mrs. Dalloway,’ is the first great book I ever read. I read it almost by accident when I was in high school, when I was 15 years old.
Michael Cunningham
When I was in high school I thought I was going to university into psychology.
Tricia Helfer
I sang in church choir all my life, through elementary school, junior high and high school.
Kevin Richardson
I knew comedy was the thing for me when I was the only Asian kid in high school… who failed math.
Dat Phan
You know when you’re young and you see a play in high school, and the guys all have gray in their hair and they’re trying to be old men and they have no idea what that’s like? It’s just that stupid the other way around.
Clint Eastwood
Be in the habit of experimenting with your clothing so that you don’t get stuck for life with a self-image developed over the course of high school.
Marilyn vos Savant
Writing is like a contact sport, like football. Why do kids play football? They can get hurt on any play, can’t they? Yet they can’t wait until Saturday comes around so they can play on the high school team, or the college team, and get smashed around. Writing is like that. You can get hurt, but you enjoy it!
Irwin Shaw
You got guys now declaring they’re ready to play pro ball in their second or third year of high school. It’s crazy! They’re missing so much.
Kareem Abdul-Jabbar
As a kid I couldn’t afford any Jordans, so I didn’t get my first pair until my last year of high school. They were Air Jordan 9s.
Carmelo Anthony
I’ve got keys to crap I’ve never owned. You put all my keys together I could be a high school janitor tonight.
Jeff Foxworthy
I saw the yearbook picture. There was six of them! I ain’t have six friends in high school, I don’t have six friends now! That’s three on three with a half court.
Chris Rock
Being famous is just like being in high school. But, I’m not interested in being the cheerleader. I’m not interested in being Gwen Stefani. She’s the cheerleader, and I’m out in the smoker shed.
Courtney Love
‘Deadline’ is the story of a young man forced to discover who he is, and what’s important in life, during the short span of his senior year in high school.
Chris Crutcher
As a matter of fact, I decided in high school that I was going to go to the seminary. And I did study with the Paulist Fathers for two years after high school in full anticipation of becoming a priest.
Bob Gunton
I was in high school when Will Ferrell was first on ‘Saturday Night Live’, and I remember thinking, ‘Man, that guy is the funniest guy ever.’
Seth Rogen
I think if you’re a ‘tiger parent’ early on, you don’t need to be a ‘helicopter parent’ in high school.
Amy Chua
With Dazed and Confused I got the high school experience I didn’t get to have. So you do create families and homes. You’re projecting and it’s your job. The amount of time and headspace and thought it takes on your psyche is huge. It’s exhausting, yeah. And it’s exhausting but it’s also great.
Parker Posey
We went to high school together; he was a year older than me. I remember him there . . . he was very tall and skinny, wore lots of ponytails in his head, and I’m pretty sure I bought weed from him. I had to have.
Cameron Diaz
Actually, I was lucky enough; I was a heavyweight, so making weight for me was never that much of a problem in high school. Now, it would just be near impossible, because I’m a little heavier.
Alex Mack
I went to high school in Lexington, Massachusetts, which in hindsight was very nice.
Eugene Mirman
I actually wanted to be a police officer like my dad for the longest time, up until my sophomore year in high school when I started doing plays. I did plays when I was little, but in high school, I started getting into acting.
Chad Lindberg
I went to high school in the 1970s and was a real daydreamer and not the best student.
John Benjamin Hickey
In high school, I didn’t get the chance to wrestle varsity until my senior year because I had an older brother who was better than me.
Rulon Gardner
Gone are the days in America where we’re able to graduate from High School and perhaps eventually get a job that pays $100,000, that barrier has been put up. If you want to work at McDonald’s, where is your degree?
Jalen Rose
When I was a child I didn’t care about getting an education, and I didn’t finish high school.
Mary J. Blige
I was a good 30 pounds overweight throughout high school, and it wasn’t until I was going away to college that I really wanted to make sure I was doing everything possible to feel as confident as I could.
Daphne Oz
My mother was a high school arts teacher, so I was always surrounded by the arts
John Lasseter
You have been told that Real Life is not like college, and you have been correctly informed. Real Life is more like high school.
Meryl Streep
I had two offers coming out of high school in football and with more resources and things like that it could have been 20.
Davante Adams
People think that once you’re in movies your life changes in a crazy way. It really doesn’t. If you choose to have it change in a crazy way, it will. I have my same groups of friends I was friends with in high school. We’re all a bunch of really normal guys.
Today, 8 million adult Americans, more than the entire population of Michigan, have not finished 5 years of school. Nearly 20 million have not finished 8 years of school. Nearly 54 million – more than one-quarter of all America – have not even finished high school.
Lyndon B. Johnson
I went to a performance of ‘The Crucible’ at the Guthrie when I was a sophomore in high school, and I knew right away that that’s what I wanted to do
John Hawkes
I wasn’t always a revolutionary, I used to live life like a criminal even though I was going through high school or college, or the fact that I was smart, had no bearing on that. People can have intelligence all the way but have no direction. Not all criminals are idiots.
Immortal Technique
When I got out of high school they retired my jersey, but it was for hygiene and sanitary reasons.
George Carlin
I studied French in high school and German in college and I once took a 24-hour Italian crash course. English has by far the most words in it of any other language. Our money might not be worth anything anymore, but the language is.
Roy Blount, Jr.
I was fifteen, or sixteen. I was in high school. I was spending a summer in California with my second cousins. And I wanted to be a director really bad. I was making a lot of 8mm home movies, since I was twelve, making little dramas and comedies with the neighborhood kids.
Steven Spielberg
I did my English A level in England, and we studied Shakespeare. I had great, great high school teachers, and we parsed the text within an inch of its life.
Joss Whedon
A New York friend said that visiting the South reminded her of nothing more than being in high school again.
Rosemary Daniell
I took a gap year myself after high school and worked on a farm near Lyon, France. I stayed with the Vallet family, picked and packed fruit, and discovered that red wine can be a breakfast drink. That led to further travel as a university student.
Nicholas Kristof
My high-school coach Tony Reginelli was kind of famous for ‘Reggie-isms,’ kind of like ‘Yogi-isms.’ He always said if you want to be a good quarterback, when sprinting left you want to be amphibious and throw left-handed. I told him, ‘You mean ambidextrous, coach?’
Peyton Manning
I’d been familiar with comics, and I’d collected ’em when I was a kid, but after I got into junior high school, there wasn’t much I was interested in
Harvey Pekar
The same people who never did their homework in high school are still doing that to this very day out in the real world.
Jules Shear
When you’re bullied in high school, even if it’s the smallest amount, or you’re actually tortured, I feel like everybody carries that with them. They always think of that one person who treated them badly in high school.
Odette Annable
Where else can you go with respect to the work, lyrics, and message of the music? If you are past high school age, you can get by with saying very little the first or second time around. However, after a while you know you are going to have to say something beyond high school stuff.
Chuck D
The same old dumb teachers teaching the same old dumb subjects in the same old dumb school. I seem to be kind of losing interest in everything. At first I thought high school would be fun but it’s just dull. Everything’s dull. Maybe it’s because I’m growing up and life is becoming more blase.
Beatrice Sparks
If you’re graduating from high school, and you come from a lower income family, you’re effectively given two options. One is get a four-year college degree; two is work at a low-wage job, potentially for the rest of your life. We’ve got to do better on that front. We have to provide more options.
J. D. Vance
People tend to think that because I’m a performer and I don’t go to a regular high school that I haven’t personally been affected by bullies. But it’s actually quite the contrary.
Ariana Grande
I went into broadcast journalism. I loved every class I took, I just got anxious because I came to the realization that you’re groomed in high school to get good SAT scores to get into a good college or else you’re done for.
Chace Crawford
I feel Britannia High is aimed at an older audience than High School Musical. Britannia High is more of a serious drama, with the music and dance on top.
Mitch Hewer
I went through child abuse, and I also went through abuse with dating a couple of boyfriends in high school. I also have gone through a divorce.
Cheryl Burke
I played football and ran track in junior high, but by high school I was getting serious about my studies.
George Smoot
It depends how lenient you are with your definition of artist. If you’re going to include those who tap dance at the high school recital, then maybe I am.
Peter Falk
To my parents and all the people who reassured me that leaving high school and going into the draft was the right thing to do, I am forever thankful.
Jeremy Bonderman
In high school, I was the class comedian as opposed to the class clown. The difference is the class clown is the guy who drops his pants at the football game, the class comedian is the guy who talked him into it.
Billy Crystal
I remember one day during my freshman year of high school, when as usual I was obsessively listening to a cast recording: it may have been ‘Jesus Christ Superstar.’ And I remember sitting there, totally absorbed, saying to myself, ‘I can do this.’
James Van Der Beek
I’m so sick of immaturity, of name-calling, of labels, of gossip, of high school. It doesn’t make sense anymore, and I find myself being nice to people that I want to strangle.
Coco Chanel
Since this was a formal undead gathering, there would be food—all kinds—drinks, dancing, and festivities, while those in power pondered whether or not to slaughter half the people around them. In other words, like a high-school prom.
Jeaniene Frost
After graduation from high school, I attended the university entrance examination, and fortunately, I was accepted by the Department of Pharmacy and became a student at the Medical School of Peking University.
Tu Youyou
Playing halfback in high school and college was marvelous! It taught me how to get to the end zone. I wanted to make my nickname “End Zone Tommy!”
Tommy McDonald
I hated the idea of a high school sweetheart. Growing up, oh my God, it just made me sick. I wanted to have a range of cool boyfriends. I wanted to travel around and date these interesting men. Then it just happened. You fall in love.
Charlotte Arnold
I have always been confident in my skills and once the game got going I knew I was probably the best player on the floor most of the time whether it was junior high, high school or college. I knew I had control of the game.
Larry Bird
When I look back at all the crap I learned in high school, it’s a wonder I can think at all.
Paul Simon
Each of our children during their high school years went to ‘early morning seminary’ – scripture study classes that met in the home of a church member every school day morning from 6:30 until 7:15.
Clayton M. Christensen
I graduated from high school in 1963. There were no computers, cell phones, Internet, credit cards, cassette tapes or cable TV.
Jeffrey Gitomer
You’re not supposed to have it all figured out in high school. If you knew it all, and it was the best, it’s all downhill from there.
Sarah Dessen
I didn’t cheer in high school. I was the farthest thing from a cheerleader in high school. We made fun of cheerleaders. Everybody did!
Sarah Roemer
I loved school, maybe too much, really. I was summa cum laude in high school. I was driven that way.
Robin Williams
I played the tuba in high school. I wanted to be a member of the marching band. I thought, what can I play that has the most effect? What can I play to get people to laugh?
Patti LuPone
I moved to Mumbai to pursue my degree after high school.
Sobhita Dhulipala
There are times when you just get down, you feel like nobody likes you. We’re in high school forever. It’s just what we do with it.
Russell Lynes
Being famous is just like being in high school. But I’m not interested in being the cheerleader. I’m not interested in being Gwen Stefani. She’s the cheerleader, and I’m out in the smoker shed.
Courtney Love
When I entered high school I was an A-student, but not for long. I wanted the fancy clothes. I wanted to hang out with the guys. I went from being an A-student to a B-student to a C-student, but I didn’t care. I was getting the high fives and the low fives and the pats on the back. I was cool.
Benjamin Carson
I believe my high school book said I was most likely to become a candlestick maker. Guessing I didn’t exactly exude confidence but just goes to show you that your path is yours to choose and make the best of and not for someone else to tell you what you can or cannot be.
Arlene Dickinson
We all know the guy who sits at the end of the local bar telling the story of how he threw the winning touchdown pass in High School. I don’t want to be that guy. Racing gives us all the chance to be athletes again.
Don Panoz
I learned hard lessons in life; I had to because I had so much happen: My mother died my sophomore year in high school. The next year, same day, my brother dropped dead. Two years after that, I got married because my girlfriend got pregnant. The year after my wedding, my father – who I had only recently met – died.
Bernie Mac
I’ve always loved films, and I always felt like a storyteller. I left Norway after high school and moved to Manhattan and went to film school in Manhattan. That’s when I really found out that this was my calling and what I wanted to do.
Morten Tyldum
In high school, I worked at Abercrombie & Fitch, and once I graduated from business school at USC, I started a company with my partner and had a nine-to-seven job.
Rob Kardashian
Where you see immigration competition play out most clearly is among high school dropouts. I’d say there’s clearly immigrant competition among the least-skilled workers, but natives are a shrinking share while immigrants are a growing share.
Jared Bernstein
We shot ‘High School Musical’ in eight weeks. I spent longer rehearsing for ‘Hairspray’ than filming ‘High School Musical’.
Zac Efron
The formula for creative writing in high school or college is write what you know. And I said they don’t know nothing. Imagine something. Do you know what it’s like to be a Madame in Paris, when you’re too old to have any clients. No, you don’t. I don’t either. Write about it.
Toni Morrison
At North Hollywood High School, I was shunned by everyone. I would sit down in the cafeteria, and students would get up from the table and walk away. They thought I was from the Mafia…
Philip Zimbardo
I think once I was in high school – I had boyfriends and stuff like that, but I think when I was younger, I went through a period where I looked like a boy, and people thought I was a boy.
Amanda Peet
I think that’s also why it’s so exciting. I really believe this play is important these are issues that people don’t talk about. Certainly they never talked about this type of thing at my high school. That’s what makes it so hard for kids. But it is something that people do go through.
Sarah Steele
We see systematically taught in our high schools today that kids not have to hear their parents, that they can make their own rules, and not even live by what their parents, so there’s no guidance from the parents. And there’s a concerted effort why – government must be their God.
Rafael Cruz
I went out to visit Dorsey Burnette, after I graduated high school.
Jimmy Griffin
It’s about, when did it make sense to say one size fits everybody? It never ever ever made sense to do that, and yet we’re still selling education the same way we sold it when you and I were in high school.
Mike Rowe
My intellectual achievement was retarded when I went to high school. I sort of sank into a black hole because I had to go to the high-achieving, academic public high school.
Noam Chomsky
I enjoy my relationship with straight men. It’s very nurturing. It’s very validating to hang out with straight guys and be accepted. So many of us, we were not accepted when we were younger by straight persons in high school.
Kyan Douglas
I was horrified in high school by the fate of the hanged maids at the end of the Odyssey; it seemed unfair to me, even then.
Margaret Atwood
I won state cross-country competitions several times during high school.
Rob Kardashian
When I was in high school I found literature and history interesting, but science not at all. Literature and history obviously involved thinking, but science seemed to be all about memorizing facts and doing mindless calculations.
Elliott Sober
I went to high school in Texas for one year, my senior year. My parents wanted me to get out of Stockholm because I was running with the wrong crew. They wanted me to get back to my roots.
Joel Kinnaman
I got the chess bug when I was finishing high school, we were doing chess tournaments at my house. I never got to a very high level.
Paul Banks
My main concern with the condition of mathematics in high school is that there’s a lot of fear involved! Math is not, generally speaking, presented in a fun way. The concepts, as I see them, are fun, and that’s the way I’d like to convey them myself.
Danica McKellar
Make an enemy of jealousy and envy. As fast and soon as you can…. The art world is high school with money.
Jerry Saltz
There was no one really like John Bender at my high school.
Judd Nelson
I started training when I was a senior in high school. I trained at the Combat Zone Wrestling Academy in South Philadelphia.
Adam Cole
I’m not going to be able to talk about the people who are involved specifically in any ongoing judicial process. We do the same thing with all our players. We take a look, as I said, at their personal family life, we look at the history of what they’ve done in high school and college.
Bill Belichick
Lou and I met while we were in high school in our senior year. We were in many of the same classes together and quite a few times we went over to his house to hang out.
Phil Harris
I played high school golf, I played amateur golf and I started getting officers. I was playing pretty good, won amateur tournaments as a junior, and the whole thing.

Everyone in my high school was a bit nerdy. We didn’t even have a football team.
Norah Jones
I quit high school the first day of 10th grade because I felt like I was wasting time.

I still remember asking my high school guidance teacher for permission to take a second year of algebra instead of a fifth year of Latin. She looked down her nose at me and sneered, ‘What lady would take mathematics instead of Latin?’
Nancy Roman
I was a choir boy for 3 years in high school at St. George’s in Newport, Rhode Island.
Billy Bush
I’ve been performing since I was in high school, so I’ve seen people react to my music and my playing. I’m always appreciative when people like the music, but I’m not shocked.
Kenny G
In 1985 I graduated from Deshler High School in Tuscumbia, Alabama, and I was their first African American homecoming queen. You would have thought I won Miss America or Miss U.S.A. (wink), because of my excitement.
Cynthia Bailey
When I was a freshman in high school, my drama teacher, an incredible, inspirational genius, the guy who got me into acting, he encouraged me to get the lead in a musical. They didn’t have any guys.
Casey Affleck
The top two movies at the box office this weekend were ‘High School Musical 3’ and ‘Saw V.’ One movie features gruesome onscreen torture that is difficult to watch and the other is about a guy with a saw.
Conan O’Brien
I decided to pursue an acting career after having had an incredible experience working on a play in high school.
Pawel Szajda
If you’re a kid who was not especially a star in your high school, I recommend going to a college in the middle of nowhere. I got all the attention I could ever have wanted.
Mindy Kaling
I have an incredible amount of basketball knowledge, and I think a lot of that is derived from having a Hall of Fame college basketball coach who was very knowledgeable of the game and I had a great high school coach who was also very knowledgeable.
Alonzo Mourning
Terry Gross. I would rush home from high school to listen to Terry Gross.
John Hodgman
I went to performing arts high school, and I took dance and acting every day. Then, I went to Marymount Manhattan College and I have a B.A. in acting, with a concentration in theater performance and a minor in musical theater. I studied there for three years.
Jenna Ushkowitz
I used to skip out of high school and go flying. It was just one of those things, I thought it was kind of a cool thing to do. I never thought about doing that as a profession, but I started checking things out and I found out there was a flight school down in Daytona Beach, called Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University.
Jerry Doyle
I’ve been playing music all my life, from being a choir soloist at Symphony Hall as a youngster to playing in bands through high school and college at Kent State. Went in the service at 17, out before I was 21.
Arthur Godfrey
I never felt comfortable in my own skin, and I feel like I missed out on a lot of high school experiences because I was so worried about where I fit in because I was so confused.
Charlotte Flair
High school football in Detroit was not easy at all. There were talented players everywhere.
Antonio Gates
It’s like high school holds two different worlds, revolving around each other an never touching; the haves and the have-nots. I guess it’s a good thing. High school is supposed to prepare you for the real world, after all.
Lauren Oliver
After I became an attorney, the mother of two girls I’d known in high school came to see me. She’d endured years of heinous abuse from her husband that nearly destroyed her. I’d never suspected a thing.
Harry Reid
I took courses at USC in film editing and art direction and photography when I was still in high school.
Ray Harryhausen
In the US, the problem is primary and secondary education. We’ve had such an increase in inequality because a quarter of American kids don’t finish high school!
Milton Friedman
I didn’t always want to act. My passion was writing, and it still is one of my primary passions to this day, but it wasn’t until high school when I started acting in plays that it became a thought of something I might want to do. And when I applied to colleges, at NYU, I was able to study both writing and acting.
Bryce Dallas Howard
Everybody thinks the grass is greener on the other side. If you talk to most artists, they think they can play something, you know, “If I had stayed playing football in high school, if I had been doing basketball…” Everybody’s got their fantasies and thinks the grass is greener. It’s not. It’s not.
Ice Cube
In high school, my sister went out with the captain of the chess team. My parents loved him… They figured that any guy that took hours to make a move was okay with them.
Brian Kiley
If you’re in college, if you’re in high school, if you’re in elementary school, if you’re in a youth league, if you’re in the NFL, football’s football.
DeAngelo Williams
It occurred to me in my junior year of high school. I got my first letter from a big college. I still have that letter to this day – a letter from Indiana.
Bo Jackson
In elementary and high school, I never considered acting as a profession.
Rashida Jones
When I was in high school, my parents had this power over me – if I ever lied or got caught doing something that I shouldnt be doing, then I would no longer be able to go to LA and continue to pursue the acting thing.
Dan Byrd
I have like two dreams a week that I have to write a paper that I’m late with or that I’ve gone back to high school and have to do that in addition to my current job.
Judy Blume
My high school was nothing like West Beverly High, let me tell you. I grew up in Fredericktown, Ohio.
Luke Perry
I actually live right near a high school and I always walk by…I live in a high school. I actually live in the boiler room of a high school at night. When I see high school guys now I’m actually like, ‘Thank f – king God I’m not in high school anymore because they look like they could kick the living s – t out of me.’
Seth Rogen
I did play Jesus in ‘Godspell,’ in high school, because I guess I’m a nerd.
Jessica Pare
Back in high school, I wrote a novel about a character named Bart Simpson. I thought it was a very unusual name for a kid at the time. I had this idea of an angry father yelling “Bart,” and Bart sounds kind of like bark – like a barking dog.
Matt Groening
In high school, I was very active in extracurricular activities such as art, theatre, and choir. I also wrote for the school newspaper, but not regularly, because I never liked writing non-fiction very much.
Meg Cabot
I was obsessed with being popular when I was in high school and never achieved it. There’s photos from our high school musicals and things, and I’m comically in the deep background, wearing a beggar’s costume.
Mindy Kaling
Everything I did in high school was focused on microbiology, looking at things like algae under a microscope for hours on end. When I was 13, I saved up $100 to buy a good used microscope. I was obsessed with microorganisms.
Randy Schekman
Both of my sons used to coach high school football. When they started, I’d say things I shouldn’t have. So I learned my lesson.
John Madden
I didn’t try out for bands when I was younger. I got into guitars intensely a couple of years into playing so much by the time I was graduating high school I was accepted into Berklee College of Music.
John Petrucci
Basically, my senior year of high school, I was going to look at prospective colleges and I went to visit Northeastern University because one of my friends was going.
Jillian Hervey
Right after I graduated high school, I joined a sushi restaurant to learn how to make Japanese food. And then spent seven years. Then that time – that’s enough. Then sushi restaurant – butchering fish and they make your body smell like fishy.
Masaharu Morimoto
My fastest time in high school was a 4:29 mile. I think cross-country has something to do with my longevity in my business. When you’re in an eight-mile race, you never give up.
Alice Cooper
Honestly, I wasn’t that girl in high school who people spread rumors about.
Josie Loren
Young women today do not marry the men they met in high school, or even the one they go out with at college, because they do not need to.
Helen Fisher
When I was in – at Vassar, and I came from a public high school in New Jersey, there was – that class still existed. I think it’s pretty much gone, but there was a way of talking that the private school girls had that was different than the way I talked from New Jersey.
Meryl Streep
I was into sports in high school, but I got kicked out of Richmond High at 17, so I never graduated. However, I still get invites to the class reunions… I don’t know that I want to see how everyone looks now.
Ryan Stiles
In high school I was an outcast I wasn’t cool to hang out with. I ate my lunch in a bathroom stall because that was the one place I could go where I wouldn’t been seen.
Shay Mitchell
You give up your childhood. You miss proms and games and high-school events, and people say it’s awful… I say it was a good trade. You miss something but I think I gained more than I lost.
Mary Lou Retton
I played in the percussion section 4th grade through high school – snare and timpani mostly.
Suzy Bogguss
I’m on my high school football team and MUST show how much I know.
Jimmy Breslin
I really didn’t want to rap; I was just a regular kid. My friend – his name is William Aston – we went to the same high school together, and he was rapping. He put out a freestyle over Chris Brown’s ‘Look at Me Now,’ and it was fire, and the whole school went crazy.
Lil Uzi Vert
I think there’s a real connection between acting and writing novels because the way I write characters has a little bit to do with the method acting that I was taught in high school and college.
Jeffrey Eugenides
Despite the theories traditionally taught in high-school social studies, the truth is: the more primitive the society, the more leisured its way of life.
Peter Farb
As I got into high school and after puberty, I was a little more inward. I was a real extrovert when I was little, but I don’t know, I just got quieter With my friends, I was still an extrovert.
John Mulaney
Homophobia is manufactured in high schools, so its probably useful to keep in mind that it really does bother people.
Zak Orth
My brother was a year younger than I am and he was never in the home with me hardly at all, … My mom had to take him to every school there possibly was to get him some education. He ended up first in Columbus, Ohio, for grade school, then went to a high school for the deaf and Galludet in Washington.

I didn’t start playing football a lot until I was in high school. I played it in seventh and eighth grade, but I didn’t play Pop Warner or anything.

Outstanding high school writers reported extensive summer reading
Stephen D. Krashen
I had a lot of friends in high school and in college, and we had a good time.

We moved from the suburbs to L.A. and I picked up break dancing when I was 10. I joined a dance crew in high school and I was battling. I also took ballet most of my life until high school.
Doja Cat
Junior colleges are high schools with ashtrays.
Adam Carolla
I had a teacher senior year in high school. He was a theater teacher, and he basically was a little bit like ‘High School Musical.’ He kind of encouraged the jocks to get involved with the plays. I did it as kind of a senior year lark.
D. B. Sweeney
I went to high school in Indianapolis I learned how to walk around looking tough because everybody had to do that. I go out there occasionally and they’re still doing it, walking around looking very tough because something might happen.
Kurt Vonnegut
I actually had a movie green lit at Disney the same week ‘Burlesque’ was green lit – a movie for Disney called ‘Mash-Up’, about a high school marching band.
Steve Antin
There has been a whole lot. Just to combine a musical career with the last year on high school was enough as it is. I didn’t think it should fare as well as it did, but apparently it did.
Lene Marlin
Their high school football is some of the best in the country.
Sylvester Croom
I had never, ever drunk beer in high school, and by the time I got to Tech we were having these parties out in the cotton fields and getting so drunk. I was the champion beer drinker; suddenly I was pouring it down my throat… Insane! Insane!
Bob Livingston
It’s fine to have anal sex as long as you’re not in high school.

Dianna Agron
I ran track in high school very competitively, and then ran it D-1 at Boston University. I ran there on an athletic scholarship and chose BU because they had both a good track program and an arts program.
Uzo Aduba
I’ve been many kinds of writers in my career: novelist; tele-playwright; short story writer. As a high-school student, I wrote amateur pieces for fanzines, and I’ve written for Hollywood.
George R. R. Martin
I think it magnified it. For me, I wasn’t sheltered so I think it was magnified. Especially when you’re a teenager and you go to high school and you’re in the business and you are known.
Heather Matarazzo
Brookfield High School. How may I direct your call? No, sir, this is not a waste- disposal unit, I’m afraid you have the wrong number.
Jaclyn Moriarty
I’ve been embracing gray hair since… high school, and I don’t think that anything’s changed since then.
Taylor Hicks
If I were a high school coach, I would put my best players on offense. The best athletes on my team, I would give them the ball and score points. I wouldn’t play them on defense. I would play them where they can get the ball and score points.
Nick Saban
To change the media, you’re gonna have to totally throw out every journalism school and get rid of everybody in every newsroom, and then you’re gonna have to change the grade school and middle school and high school curriculum.
Rush Limbaugh
I remember being asked when I was in high school what do I want to do when I grow up and the answer is so indicative – I would like to have been a successful playwright.
Mitchell Hurwitz
In high school I was a jazz nerd, listened to a lot of Bud Powell and Thelonious Monk and stuff like that. Maybe in Harry Pussy I was listening to more horn players.
Bill Orcutt
Junior and senior high school years were not a good time.
Sissy Spacek
I hope that my ideas attract a lively dialogue, even if my sentences are simple. Simple sentences have always served me well. And I don’t use semicolons. It’s hard to read anyway, especially for high school kids. Also, I avoid irony, too. I don’t like people saying one thing and meaning the other.
Kurt Vonnegut
It feels great to not be the acne-ridden outsider that I felt like when I was in high school. It’s a lot more fun being alive now than it was then, I’ll say that much.
Chris Pine
But yeah, I played bass guitar in high school and in college and then I actually fractured my thumb, so my bass career went bye-bye.
Colin Hanks
I’m a skinny, geeky, high school dropout – it works, kids! Sensitive guys always get the girl. You’ll get laid 10 times as much as that guy on the football team ’cause he’s on steroids and he’s gonna get fat.
Dave Grohl
Ever hear that expression, “it was the best of times, it was the worst of times”? That’s what high school was like for me. Both of those – all the time.
Sarah Kay
American high school students trail teenagers from 14 European and Asian countries in reading, math and science. We’re even trailing France.
Suzanne Fields
I haven’t seen a new football play since I was in high school. You have just so many holes in a line and you have eleven men playing, and there’s only so many ways you can go through those holes, and those ways have been used for forty, fifty years.
Red Grange
When I was in high school, I hid in the back seat of an old boyfriend’s car when he was out with another girl. He finally found me, but not until after he had made out with her for an hour.
Bonnie Hunt
I started playing piano with a little band in high school. I was terrible. I thought I had absolutely no talent. I couldn’t keep time. I only got into McGill, which was a lousy music school, because they were taking American music students.
Burt Bacharach
I started dancing when I was five, and I trained intensively as a competitive dancer up until the end of high school. I did all genres, and later on a did a lot of extra ballet on top of that. I actually got accepted to Julliard for dance during my senior year, but I ultimately turned it down to come to L.A. to act.
Jacob Artist
The majority of the high schools and the public schools in N.Y.C. don’t even have band programs. Hip-hop in a lot of ways is an outgrowth of a lack of instruments and a desire to play music, so we can’t really fault the kids for that.
Wynton Marsalis
I had a lot of friends in high school, but I was never the wild party girl. Never have been, never plan to be!
Blake Lively
Being an actress is similar to trying to fit in with the popular kids in high school. You’re expected to drive the right car, wear the right clothes and say the right things.
Lauren Ambrose
I think that with some education there are real possibilities at the high school and college level, but more so at the college level, to bring people into cycling.
Kristin Armstrong
High school wasn’t a trial by fire or some ordeal that had to be survived. It was all a big joke. You just had to provide the laugh track.
Scott Westerfeld
Getting through high school and college was one of my greatest achievements.
Anne Bancroft
I was born and raised in Pawnee City, Nebraska. I lived right next to the sale barn and I raised pigs. My dad was a guidance counselor at Wymore High School. He was also a preacher and did farming as well. We leased out our crop land but had cattle and horses.
Larry the Cable Guy
When I was in high school I used to sit by myself in the cafeteria – not necessarily by choice – but I thought it was funny to talk to people that weren’t there.
Zach Galifianakis
When I finished high school, I was 16, and in Argentina you have to choose a career right after high school. There is no such thing as a liberal arts education.
Cesar Pelli
Girls aren’t mean to guys in high school. They are mean to each other. Girls were never mean to me.
Jonathan Bennett
I’m a big lover of America. I love the people, but also the weird berms, the strange little high schools tucked away in different places, and just the whole geography and the psychoВ­logical apparatus of Americans.
George Saunders
I was really good in high school, so in college I was going to be really bad.
Rob Huebel
I met Pat Militich when I was a junior in high school when I was 16 and just started training and went from there. I went to the same high school that Pat had attended and he would bring some of his fighters out to wrestling practice to work out and I got to know him that way. I immediately like it.
Robbie Lawler
In high school I definitely had a clique of friends. And what I loved about it was that we were healthy and good girls.
Tyra Banks
As a school board member, I might have particular views about the ways we might increase the economics curriculum in a local high school, but I’m not sure I should mandate that for the entire country.
Zephyr Teachout
You can never rely on musicians. I quit high school at one point to make a go of it with this band and we kept breaking up. So I went back to school.
David James Elliott
I worry about the kids who have too much. As a parent living in a so-called good neighborhood with children who went to private high school, I found myself spending much time in parent groups worrying about alcohol, unsupervised parties, and parents not being parents.
Marian Wright Edelman
I’ve never heard anything Wynton [Marsalis] played sound like it meant anything at all. Wynton has no voice and no presence. His music sounds like a talented high-school trumpet player to me… he’s jazzy the same way someone who drives a BMW is sporty.
Keith Jarrett
My original plan was to graduate high school and major in computer engineering at college. That went out the window, and I said, ‘I have to do something with speaking.’
Lizzie Velasquez
My second grade teacher told me I would never graduate high school. That I was going to be a juvenile delinquent.
Miles Teller
I have wrestled in almost every tournament in the world. I’ve won the Olympics, NCAAs, and World Championships, but none of those can truly compare to the feeling I felt when I won my first and only state championship my senior year of high school.
Jordan Burroughs
I’ve always been athletic – I ran track in high school – and it kept my blood pressure in check over the years. Once I was diagnosed with hypertension, I stepped up my workouts.
Regina King
I didn’t really think about becoming a professional artist until high school, when I realized that everything else required too much math.
Phil Foglio
I began filmmaking in high school, at the Chicago Academy for the Arts. My first documentary was about a dysfunctional obese middle-aged carpet cleaner named Bill, who lived with his Mom, and his love affair with Anna, a drug-addicted prostitute. I made that when I was 16.
Yony Leyser
You have to run the football and stop the run, no matter what level you play at, whether it’s high school, college or professional ranks. I’m a firm believer in that.
Chip Kelly
My early education was in the public school system of Omaha, where, retrospectively, I realize that my high school training served me in good stead for the basic subjects of mathematics, English, foreign languages and history.
Lawrence R. Klein
One of the biggest challenges in investing is that the opportunity set available today is not the complete opportunity set that should be considered. Limiting your opportunity set to the one immediately at hand would be like limiting your spouse to the students you met in high school
Seth Klarman
High school was cool, man. I went to a public school for my first two years, and then I went and did independent study. I was, like, taken out of it. So I didn’t have a normal one.
Noah Centineo
I was that kid who did every activity when I was in high school. There wasn’t a day that I didn’t stay after school to do something. I just had my hands in everything. And I was similarly very, very angry. I was an angry little guy.
Chris Gethard
Whoa. If high school was suppose to be the best years of my life – at least so far – I was truly destined to have a sucky adulthood.
Meg Cabot
Luckily for me, when I was growing up in high school, I had a band, and I was a singer in the band. I’m less of a legit Broadway singer than I am a pop-rock singer.
Stark Sands
Up until the time I was 14 years old, I was sure that I was going to be a big-league baseball player. But that dream came to a rude awakening when I got cut from my high school baseball team.
Phil Knight
I was on the high school track team, believe it or not, and played baseball, poorly but passionately.
Charles Kuralt
I also met Charles McPherson around that time, end of high school. I was 17 and I had followed Phil around for a year and pestered him enough to finally give me saxophone lessons. So all of a sudden I’ve got Phil Woods and Charles McPherson around me.
Jon Gordon
When I was in high school, my friends and I would drive out into the country to abandoned houses and structures… haha… to ghost hunt. We would scare each other so bad! We would sometimes camp out by the abandoned buildings just to scare ourselves! Such good times. The adrenaline of real fear is so cool!
Keegan Allen
I like high school and college writing textbooks and find them very helpful. Whenever I’m stuck and seem to have no ideas, I open one up and turn to the back. There I’ll find questions like, “Have you had any experiences with an alcoholic or a sailor?”
David Sedaris
I played tournament chess from fifth grade up into high school.
Chris Hardwick
I hated high school and got to college and realized they didn’t care if I showed up because I’d already paid. So I decided, ‘I’m going to turn this around.’ And I did: I got straight A’s and was named ‘outstanding senior.
Pauley Perrette
If you want to prevent abortions, you make sure everyone has health care, a high school education and birth control. Not the exact opposite.
Chris Rock
It’s like those high-school yearbook photos that everyone would rather not see: Oh my God, look at that mullet hair. I have those photos too, but for me, they’re, like, entire movies. And they show them on cable.
John Cusack
While my friends were discussing Pearl Harbor as the country’s problem, I took it personally. It dawned on me that the Japanese attack could be my ticket out of high school.
Art Buchwald
I graduated high school and I didn’t have a skill set and I didn’t want to go to college. I needed a job.
Amy Adams
I was quite cocky, but having been hailed as this great young golfer, I couldn’t even make the high school golf team once I got there. I had a big dose of humble pie then, and ever since, I’ve always known that there is always someone out there better than you, more talented. Always.
David Chang
My parents moved to American Samoa when I was three or four years old. My dad was principal of a high school there. It was idyllic for a kid. I had a whole island for a backyard. I lived there until I was eight years old and we moved to Santa Barbara.
Eric Stoltz
Getting through high school and college was one of my greatest achievements.
Ann Bancroft
When nearly a third of our high school students do not graduate on time with their peers, we have work to do. We must design our middle and high schools so that no student gets lost in the crowd and disconnected from his or her own potential.
Christine Gregoire
Most kids just follow the cycle. My grandfather didn’t finish high school. My father didn’t, and I didn’t. But you can break the cycle. You can have a successful marriage and be a good father.
Eric D. Thomas
I’m too young to have experienced firsthand the ’70s rock, but when I was in high school, me and my friends were super into Neil Young. That was the grunge era, and he was considered cool again
Bryan Lee O’Malley
Everybody just wants to be loved, and nobody feels loved enough in high school.
Kristen Bell
I knew from a young age that I wanted to perform. I went to an arts camp called Brookdale Arts Camp, in New Jersey, from the time I was 6, and then I was a counselor there through high school.
Melissa Rauch
Growing up, I had a very busy social life. It wasn’t until I was a sophomore in high school that I asked Mama if I could come into the kitchen and have her teach me how to cook something.
Paula Deen
Painting, drawing – I’m really into photography, I’ve done it since high school.
Dianna Agron
High school is very intense for everyone. But at a boarding school, because you’re there 24 hours a day, everything gets magnified.
Curtis Sittenfeld
When I was in high school if you were black and lived in Detroit, and you wanted to drive down to Florida to go on vacation, you had to plan to drive all the way through, because you couldn’t stop in a hotel all the way through South Carolina, North Carolina, and Georgia. We can’t even fathom such a thing now, can we?
Wayne Dyer
Do you get the feeling with Sarah Palin, in high school, she was voted least likely to write a book and most likely to burn one?
Robin Williams
When I was four or five, I had an older brother who got paralyzed from the neck down in junior high school. Some kid did a wrestling fall on him and hit his spine. We had to take care of him. I went from being the baby to not really being the baby anymore.
Scottie Pippen
It is hard to rationalise or explain why you love what you love. But I have always been interested in science and maths, and in high school I was struck that you could use maths to understand nature and science.
Serge Haroche
I was such a nerd in high school, I didn’t even have imaginary friends, I had imaginary bullies.
Brian Posehn
How I dressed in high school is the way we dressed.
Jam Master Jay
I was writing novels in high school and apprenticed myself in a way both to Faulkner and to Hemingway.
Joyce Carol Oates
That’s correct, I flunked out of high school twice because I couldn’t write.
Robert Kiyosaki
I was a huge nerd in high school. Sure, I socialized – but I was definitely a nerd.
Bella Heathcote
I was born a Christian, but I became an atheist back in high school because I just started losing faith. I’d lost my brother and best friend, Nadarius. I couldn’t get a job. But I do feel like there is a higher power now, and it’s inside of me.
I grew up in a household that was a labor household. My dad was a Teamster and a milk truck driver. My mother was a secretary. Neither of them got through high school. But they worked hard and they gave me very, very important opportunities to go to school, get a good education.
Dick Gephardt
At an early age, I quit high school at 17 and joined the Air Force.
Sandy Adams
When I was in high school, I was always really envious of those girls who seemed to have everything: the perfect hair, perfect clothes, perfect boyfriend, perfect life. It wasn’t until I was older that I realized that nobody’s life is perfect, and that those girls probably had a lot of the same problems I did.
Sarah Dessen
I began reading in French. I didn’t read in English until high school.
Laila Lalami
I put so much pressure on myself to be perfect. Between homework and sports and drama and being social, I slept about four hours a night through high school and college.
Allison Williams
I played basketball and soccer my freshman year in high school.
Mia Hamm
I would never recruit a player who yells at his teammates, disrespected his high school coach, or scores 33 points a game and his team goes 10-10.
Dean Smith
I saw some musicals at dinner theaters where I grew up. But I didn’t go to a big theater to see one until probably after I graduated from high school when I took myself to see Tommy when it was on tour. I absolutely loved it.
Amy Adams
I got into acting my junior year of high school. We got a new hot drama teacher and I was like ‘Alright, I’ll try drama.’
Miles Teller
I was hopeless at high school – I failed everything but Latin.
Keanu Reeves
Six Secrets to Being a Successful Humorist 1. Be scared, unhappy, and an outcast as a kid. 2. Drop out of high school. 3. Spend time alone. 4. Don’t take a comedy course. 5. Read other humorists but don’t worship them. 6. Don’t get your hopes up.
Bruce McCall
If you are a young girl who wants to be a country singer, just don’t try to do it too early. Be a high school kid, be a cheerleader, do your thing. And also, just know who you are; know what you want to say and stick with it throughout.
Miranda Lambert
Some of the best projects to ever come out of Atari or Chuck E. Cheese’s were from high school dropouts, college dropouts. One guy had been in jail.
Nolan Bushnell
I was wrestling all the way to high school, but it kind of came in the same season as basketball, so I had to pick and choose one, and I decided to go all the way with basketball.
Muggsy Bogues
By 2018, an estimated 63 percent of all new U.S. jobs will require workers with an education beyond high school. For our young people to get those jobs, they first need to graduate from high school ready to start a postsecondary education.
Bill Gates
Going back to Baltimore is awesome because all my friends still live there and there’s never a dull moment when you’re hanging out with your high-school friends.
Jack Barakat
I joined an acting class in my junior year in high school. I’d always wanted to try it.
Rainn Wilson
Listeners are kind of ambushed… if a poem just happens to be said when they’re listening to the radio. The listener doesn’t have time to deploy what I call their ‘poetry deflector shields’ that were installed in high school – there’s little time to resist the poem.
Billy Collins
When I auditioned for my high school band the band director was excited because my father was known to be a great musician. When he heard me, he said ‘Are you sure you’re Ellis’s son?’
Wynton Marsalis
I’ve always been vertically challenged. I never grew at all until my junior year of high school-if you call that growing.
Chris Paul
I guess whatever maturity is there may be there because I’ve been keeping a journal forever. In high school my friends would make fun of me – you’re doing your man diary again. So I was always trying to translate experience into words.
Anthony Doerr
Eventually I went back to high school. I went to a coaching center in my neighborhood. I had to leave the homeless situation because it was so bad and I knew that I was falling deeper and deeper.
Luis J. Rodriguez
It’s always a tough process when you’re always the best guy on your team, in high school, in middle school, AAU and things like that. Then you come together, and you may not be the best guy on the team. You may have to adjust. You may not be a go to scorer. You may have to be a picker. You may have to be a rebounder.
DeAndre Jordan
I was raised Christian after age 5, but I didn’t really understand it until high school. A friend of mine invited me to his youth group. There I heard the gospel, understood it, and accepted it.
Francis Chan
I remember liking to write stories pretty early on. In fourth or fifth grade, they would give us the beginning of a story, and we were supposed to finish it. I remember liking that. But I didn’t think about deciding to become a writer until high school at about the age of 16.
Jeffrey Eugenides
When I got out of high school I hit the road. I lived like a gypsy. Those were the best times of my life. I was living from club to club not knowing where my next meal was coming from. No credit cards, no apartment, no bills, no managers, just on the road with a truck and five guys.
Rex Smith
I was a real loner in high school, even though people assume I was the head cheerleader.
Kate Bosworth
I’m never nervous. Not in high school, not in college. That’s just the way I am.
Chauncey Billups
I was so tall in high school that I was convinced that I was uncoordinated and not athletic. I was terrified to play any sport at all, no matter how hard they tried to convince me to be on the girls’ basketball team as the tallest kid in class.
Geena Davis
In high school, I was the biggest procrastinator in the world.
Kristin Kreuk
I was heavily influenced by my first attempt at a novel. I started a fantasy novel back in high school, and… well… it really sucked. It was a plotless, clichГ©d mess.
Patrick Rothfuss
Like now what Urban Outfitters has become is very much how I always dressed in high school by going to garage sales and getting stuff for 50 cents. Cost a little more now, to look like crap.
Amy Lee
I went to a very academically competitive high school. So I was always quite studious and quiet, just to keep up with the other geniuses who were in my school.
Ben Barnes
In middle school, I really didn’t have music, but in high school, I remember taking a lot of choir and drama.
Adam Lambert
Only Socrates knew, after a lifetime of unceasing labor, that he was ignorant. Now every high-school student knows that. How did it become so easy?
Allan Bloom
Domestic violence does not only happen to adults. Forty percent of girls age 14 to 17 report knowing someone their age who has been hit or beaten by a boyfriend, and approximately one in five female high school students reports being physically and sexually abused by a dating partner.
Dianne Feinstein
In high school, theater was all I ever wanted to do. I didnt see that I was going to set it aside for so many years and take a right turn into television. Of course, wanting to do theater is something you hear a lot from actors. I think Ive been embarrassed to be in that big cliche.
Mare Winningham
My mother always told me that came first. I started modeling in 11th grade and it was something that I did after school and on the weekends. School is so important and modeling should be treated as an extracurricular activity as opposed to a career until you graduate high school.
Tyra Banks
The wonderful drama teacher at my high school, Barbara Patterson, saw me standing in the hall and told me I should audition for ‘West Side Story.’ I guess she thought I looked like a gang member.
Gary Sinise
I was an educated girl. I’d done very well in school. I had a good point average and graduated from USC as an English teacher. My dad didn’t even finish high school.
Marlo Thomas
All of a sudden, making a Spanish-American War joke. I think you sort of had to go to probably to an American high school to have remembered that.
David Mandel
When I was a freshman in high school, I got a letterman jacket, which you’d think would be great stock. The jacket had the big S on it, for Santa Monica. But rather than having a football or a baseball on the S, I had a little nine iron. Girls thought it was a flute.
Carson Daly
Drugs have been in the game for a long time. They were there when I was in college, and even in high school. It’s in life. It’s in business. It’s everywhere.
Michael Jordan
I didn’t want to act in high school, because I was sick of auditioning for Nickelodeon, Disney mean girls, or the cheerleader.
Emily Ratajkowski
I just started playing guitar and started singing and started working on this act that I would call ‘Don McLean’ when I was probably in high school.
Don McLean
I have always loved rock music. But I have played country music since my senior year in high school. That’s where my heart is. I try to keep up with the rock world as much as I can.
Tracy Byrd
I liked to scrapbook and collage a whole lot in high school. I’m always ripping things out of magazines, and always collecting quotes from the Internet. When I was 17, I loved AIM. I was obsessed with my buddy list!
Jenna Ushkowitz
I look forward to the day that a lot of the folks that you all talk about and cover on this network will begin to market products for these families and for these kids coming out of junior high school and high school all across the country.
Harold Ford, Jr.
I gave the graduation speech at my high school. Not because I was valedictorian but because the grade voted for me to do it. And I gave a slightly contentious speech. I was a little critical of the administration. But for a long time it said on Wikipedia that I took my balls out and exposed myself to the crowd.
Nick Kroll
I can’t tell you the number of times in high school I was allowed to be disappointed for not making the grade; it’s a part of life. So the young students who are being taught by radical leftists in this country today are going to end up growing up in a world for which they are totally unprepared and unequipped.
Rush Limbaugh
I think I’ve identified as an artist since I was a baby – literally a baby. I made a book of drawings and paintings in pre-school. By the time I got to high school, I was completely enamored with art, doing paintings and portraits at lunchtime. I’ve been creating in some capacity forever.
Chloe Wise
Sloppy casual has always been my default look. My preppier classmates in high school would sometimes sport two, three, even four shirts at a time – Lauren, Izod, Brooks Brothers, all collars-up – while I wore secondhand faded olive German-army fatigues and this cool T-shirt with a troll on it.
Michael Paterniti
I did ‘Spanglish’ and went back home, and the next thing I did was my high school play. My agents at the time were like, ‘Uh. What?’
Sarah Steele
One way in which Americans have always been exceptional has been in our support for education. First we took the lead in universal primary education; then the “high school movement” made us the first nation to embrace widespread secondary education.
Paul Krugman
Out of high school, I was, like, 202-205 pounds. My rookie season, I was, like, 245; my second year, I was 255. My third year, I got up to like 272, and I tore my ACL. I don’t know if my weight was part of the cause of that, but I got hurt, so I just tried to re-evaluate my situation.
Von Miller
You can be 24 and continue to live like you’re at college, or even continue to live like you’re in high school. Or you can put on a shirt and tie and pretend to be an adult.
Ezra Koenig
Bluntly put, there’s no chance that your doctor, dentist, or attorney is a high-school dropout. Your stockbroker, however, just might be.
William J. Bernstein
High school, you don’t want to go back and do it over again.
Marguerite Moreau
With access to the clubs, access to the strip joints. My house. My boat. We’re talking about high school football players. Not anybody can just get into the clubs or strip joints. Who is going to pay for it and make it happen? That was me.
Nevin Shapiro
I was never the cool kid, I was never hot in high school. I was never popular. You don’t have to be perfect and you don’t have to be rich and you can still be successful.
I’m a layperson. I barely got out of high school. I have no business telling people what to do or my big philosophy on life. I’m certainly not going to write any sort of memoir.
Jamie Lee Curtis
I always sang. I wanted to be in a band with my sister, and I was, at 11. At 12, I started writing seriously, and that was my pacifier all through high school – that and painting.
Cyndi Lauper
Yes, I took up the guitar when I was about 14 or 15, in high school.
Beau Bridges
It’s just like high school. If you’re a freshman or a sophomore, it’s hard to tell the seniors who’ve been through two, three, playoff games what to do.
Tony Romo
By the end of high school I was not of course an educated man, but I knew how to try to become one
Clifton Fadiman
I was always the youngest boy in my class at high school. I have retained this feeling of being the youngest, even though now I am almost the oldest person I know.
Oliver Sacks
My younger sister retired a few years ago after a 30-year career teaching history and social studies at an inner-city high school.
Judy Woodruff
Every single Asian dude who went to high school or junior high during the era of John Hughes movies was called ‘Donger,’
Martin Wong
What’s the use of a high school education if you can’t recall it when needed later on?
Hal Clement
I think we need more math majors who don’t become mathematicians. More math major doctors, more math major high school teachers, more math major CEOs, more math major senators. But we won’t get there unless we dump the stereotype that math is only worthwhile for kid geniuses.
Jordan Ellenberg
I had been singing all my life, but I started acting in high school.
Kevin Richardson
I did ‘How to Succeed in Business… ,’ ‘Kiss Me Kate,’ ‘Godspell,’ and ‘You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown’ in high school, all of which were fun.
Jonathan Groff
I was way behind physically in high school. They had weight bars that were about forty-five pounds. I couldn’t handle them. Couldn’t even put the weights on. It was embarrassing. So I always figured out ways to avoid lifting when I was young.
Scottie Pippen
In high school I was always thinking, ‘Should I be doing more? What else should I be doing?’ Now I know it will all come to me. I just have to trust my path, so that’s very different.
Jenna Dewan
Kelly Kelly really graduated from high school?
Matt Striker
I remember being one of those women who never imagined I would get married and have children. You ask any of my high school friends, and I would have been voted in the class to be the least likely to get married or have children.
Mercedes Schlapp
I always think back to my high school days and realize all the people who were so popular then are nowhere now and all the people who were steadfast and steady-going are somewhere. So high school doesn’t necessarily translate to later in life.
Steve Martin
Only nut cases want to be president. This was true even in high school. Only clearly disturbed people ran for class president.
Kurt Vonnegut
I did volleyball, basketball, and track all through high school. And then I went to junior college and I stuck with track because I was good at shot put and discus. And then I got a full ride to Fresno State for their track program. Shot put was my main thing. I was the five-time All-American, and I set a couple records.
Dot Jones
aloof, adj. It has always been my habit, ever since junior high school, to ask that question: “What are you thinking?” It is always an act of desperation, and I keep on asking, even though I know it will never work the way I want it to.
David Levithan
Once I got to high school and auditioned for a play and got in, I thought this was really what I was looking for. Once that had got cleared up, from 13 on, that was it.
Joan Allen
After college, I went to Alley Theatre in Houston to work in their apprentice actor program. I thought I was gonna get discovered. It didn’t happen. I moved back to Germantown, Tennessee, outside of Memphis, and taught at my old high school.
Chris Parnell
I moved to L.A. right out of high school, but not to act. I think I chose it because it was on the same time zone as Seattle, where I’m from.
Cam Gigandet
When I was still a student, I came out of a performing arts high school, and the female students who were doing traditional dance and ballet were so beautiful. They were beautiful, starting from their postures.
Any institution becomes a community – whether it’s a high school or a boarding school or a publishing company or a small town where everybody knows certain things about people.
Alice Hoffman
When I got outta High School I was driving a truck. I was just a poor boy from Memphis, Memphis.
Elvis Presley
I guess I have sort of an atypical relationship with my mom for someone my age, because I think I started so young with the music thing and I had my parents always on the road with me. So at a time when I think I should have been rebelling like in high school, they were actually my best friends.
Mandy Moore
I was so shy. Instead of waiting in line with other kids at lunch, I’d go to a corner and buy a pretzel and orange juice. I think I had that for lunch the first three years of high school.
Peter Facinelli
I think what frustrated me more than anything else in my formative years was that I just had to work. I had to have a job. Like twenty to thirty hours a week, a lot of times in high school and college. And that was hard.
Jon Gordon
By the time I was in high school, Roe v. Wade had passed, so that was also happening; girls were getting pregnant and getting abortions – and that happened in my school too.
Annette Bening
I don’t know, you know all through high school I just knew I wanted to do it.
Josh Duhamel
At the time I finished high school, I was determined to study biology, deeply convinced to eventually be a researcher.
Christiane Nusslein-Volhard
It’s interesting that whenever I meet some of the other Bond girls, I always have something in common, and it is an interesting sorority. We all share about our Bonds. ‘Did your Bond do that?’ ‘Yes mine did!’ So it is quite funny conversations. We may as well be in high school.
Jane Seymour
I was the only white kid in my neighborhood for most of my youth even in high school, so reverse racism was just as apparent as racism.
Shia LaBeouf
I ran track in high school. I was a fragile young man, personally and physically. I tried football. That didn’t work out; I broke my collarbone. But I always loved running.
Danny Pudi
High school is about finding who you are, because that’s more important than trying to be someone else.
Nick Jonas
College coaches measure success in championships. High School coaches measure success to titles. Youth coaches measure success in smiles.
Paul McAllister
I started going [Grateful Dead] when I was in high school. I was 15. It was the Summer Of Love.
Bill Walton
Basketball was not my main sport in grade school, or even the first year of high school.
Mike Krzyzewski
The only thing I learnt in high school is that people are very violent and territorial.
Gerard Way
I thought I should go to New York because it was the place to go to study. I went and tried to get an application from the Juilliard School but they wouldn’t even give me one because I didn’t have my high school graduation.
Maureen Forrester
I’ve always loved acting with adults versus like the whole High School feel.
Alison Lohman
I had people at Perrysburg High School in my life in Perrysburg who believed in me and told me I could do anything I wanted too, and I foolishly believed them.
Sam Jaeger
I started in high school and then I went onto professional training after that.
Bruce Boxleitner
I was not a jock in high school. I know, you’re shocked.
Mo Rocca
College is right for some people, and it’s not for others. I shouldn’t rush into it just because that’s what everyone does after high school is you go to college.
Sadie Sink
I wanted to be a filmmaker, actually, when I was in high school and college. But I just decided it would be more expensive to do, so I sort of decided music would be more fun.
Will Sheff
I have been a goof my whole life. I wasn’t really the popular girl in school and didn’t have any boyfriends in high school because I was a nerd. I was a geek.
Malin Akerman
With nearly all students leaving public high school having taken some vocational education, this bill continues to provide communities with the funding necessary to give students an edge on career training.
John M. McHugh
I was dating my first boyfriend in high school for a long time, and we broke up before prom. I hadn’t met anyone else that I really wanted to go with, and my friends have always been amazing. So I went with my friends and got a million photos with them!
Shay Mitchell
I had an Indian Scout motorcycle during high school, but I never could take it to school. My dad would sneak out at night and pull the spark-plug wires.
Burt Reynolds
We need to create jobs for 300,000 youth graduating from high school in the next three years. We need to produce growth so we can have an economic system that can turn our natural wealth into a productive system. We need services, because poverty reduction cannot take place without effective citizenship.
Ashraf Ghani
Shigure Sohma: singing High school girls high school girls all for me High school girls
Natsuki Takaya
In high school I was good at math and everybody wanted me to do something with that – mathematics or engineering – which was a nightmare scenario for me. Meeting other artists and going to punk rock shows at that age, there was a feeling of freedom and community that I wanted to partake in.
Laura Owens
There’s nothing wrong with you. There’s a lot wrong with the world you live in. And definitely get out of high school and make everyone sorry.
Chris Colfer
I was a pretty delinquent little kid. My folks and I didn’t get along, so I basically moved out… put myself through high school and then college by working. I’m only a half-year short of a degree in history.
Al Jourgensen
On the road you can really be more regular about it and work it into daily routines. There’s no town that doesn’t have a gym. And if you find one that actually doesn’t, you can go to the local high school. They always have one.
Aaron Tippin
I didn’t finish high school but I feel like if I was in college I could debate with anybody.

I don’t think that players learn how to play any other aspect of the game in high school or college.
Oscar Robertson
I started drama in high school.
Daniel Cudmore
Football games on Friday nights followed by field parties every weekend was how I spent my high school years.
Abbi Glines
When I was in high school I was a super serious athlete. I wasn’t fun at all.
Sean William Scott
People often say that this or that person has not yet found himself. But the self is not something one finds, it is something one creates.
Thomas Szasz
In high school, I weighed 175 to 180. I looked like Abraham Lincoln. I was 6-foot-3, biggest thing in the class, but tall, not fat.
Willard Scott
I definitely pride myself on suffering through a real high school. A lot of my friends are homeschooled, and I love them for it, but I really wanted that high school experience.
Josie Totah
I was a very focused kid. I always had this crazy lifestyle… billions of jobs, two hours of gymnastics every day, handball, anything with a ball, really. I must have had ADHD or something. I was very energetic, and very small. I didn’t start growing until the last year of high school.
Mads Mikkelsen
I came from stage in high school, and on stage you kind of overdo with putting on a character a little bit. Sometimes you become a character and sometimes the character becomes you.
William Zabka
I’m kind of grateful that I didn’t have any real success until I was older and basically out of high school. I think that was a real confidence boost for me, having it all start that way, in that very privileged position of having him vouch for me.
Alden Ehrenreich
I was who I was in high school in accordance with the rules of conduct for a normal person, like obeying your mom and dad. Then I got out of high school and moved out of the house, and I just started, for lack of a better term, running free.
Iggy Pop
When I started writing seriously in high school, English was the language I had at my disposal – my Spanish was domestic, colloquial, and not particularly literary or sophisticated.
Daniel Alarcon
I was a pitcher, shortstop and outfielder, and the Yankees tried to sign me out of high school as a first-round draft pick in 1981. I turned them down to go to college.
Bo Jackson
Even in high school, I’d tell my mom I was sick of swimming and wanted to try to play golf. She wasn’t too happy. She’d say, ‘Think about this.’ And I’d always end up getting back in the pool.
Michael Phelps
I remember seeing Richard Pryor’s first movie; it was a midnight movie when I was in high school. I must have been about fifteen. It was one of the most cathartic experiences of my life. I’d never laughed that much.
Marc Maron
In high school, I was kind of a loner because I had moved to a new school.
Jennie Garth
I grew up in Pennsylvania in a small town. Real small, like one high school and one movie theater. Well, there was a state college there, that was the only good thing about it.
Keith Haring
During the 1942 Quit India Movement, I was a student at Gwalior High School. I was arrested by the British for participating in the movement. My parents then sent me off to my village where, again, I jumped into the movement.
Atal Bihari Vajpayee
I don’t know about living on an automatic pilot, but I’ve had times where I’ve decided to just test myself and my mettle, and for no good reason other than it’s what life is. Even before I was acting, I had, like, one day in high school I decided to just show them my pajamas, just for no good reason.
Will Ferrell
Looking back at my high school years, I’m struck by how slowly history can move.
Frank Rich
That’s my advice to all homosexuals, whether they’re in the Boy Scouts, or in the Army or in high school: Shut up, don’t tell anybody what you do, your life will be a lot easier.
Bill O’Reilly
My grades in high school were not very good. I was that kind of perfectionist that figured if you can’t do it perfectly, why do it at all? So my grades weren’t great, but I feel like, is there any other way that I could have gotten into NYU? I don’t know. I think that it definitely worked in my favor in some ways.
Mara Wilson
Oh, yes, I taught 13 and a half years. I taught English, first at a Catholic school and then at El Toro High School in Lake Forest, Calif.
Elizabeth George
I was born in Everett; I went through grade school in Everett, high school in Seattle.
Dorothy Malone
Well, I’ve never been in a touring rock band, it was all just high school and college, playing toga parties in frat houses.

I played in garage bands and rock and roll bands when I was in junior high and high school and saw some of the great talents of all time in the local area where I lived.
David Cassidy
I flunked my exam for university two times before I was accepted by what was considered my city’s worst university, Hangzhou Teachers University. I was studying to be a high school English teacher. In my university, I was elected student chairman and later became chairman of the city’s Students Federation.
Jack Ma
I made the decision to take acting seriously after high school.
Mary-Kate Olsen
I had little problems during high school. It seemed like I was always getting into trouble in summer, going in and out of juvenile hall.
Tito Ortiz
I went to public school, elementary through high school. I went to homecoming, to football games, pep rallies, I got detention, I got an F. I’ve done it all.
In my schooling through high school, I excelled mainly in chemistry, physics and mathematics.
James Rainwater
First, [in high school], I smoked a lot of pot…and that’s how I got to know the people ‘half in’ the society of my high school and we waved at each other over the bong. Then I got to know people by making jokes.
Stephen Colbert
When you are a high school girl, there is nothing more miraculous than a high school boy.
Curtis Sittenfeld
you know a person is having a severe personality crisis if you see a high school class ring on a finger beyond the first semester in college. Male or female. It’s a big sign saying nothing has mattered to my life since senior year.
Nikki Giovanni
We signed with Roadrunner because, they almost signed us in ’97 or something, and we’ve been wanting to work with Monty Connor, the guy who signed us, for a long time because he’s been a huge fan of us since, I mean, in high school, when I was in high school and he was following our band.
Jess Margera
In high school ethics they went around and asked what everyone thought their classmates were qualified to do. For me, everyone said actress. But to me it was very much “if it happens, it happens.”
Amanda Schull
When I was in high school, my thing was to get as close as humanly possible to a girl and just make her have to kiss me! You do the hug that’s too close, where your mouth is close to hers and you kinda feel it out a little bit.
Pete Wentz
I had the afro when I was in high school. I had the flattop during a short period in the early ’90s. And I’ve had different variations of dreadlocks. I’ll admit to those!
Tim Meadows
The first book that really knocked me out was the ‘Brothers Karamazov.’ I read it when I was a senior in high school.
Robert Hass
I was told in high school that the last game during your senior year stays with you forever, which is true.

The U.S. Census Bureau acknowledged this fact when it reported that those with a bachelor’s degree earn on average $1 million more over their lifetime than those with only a high school diploma.
Elijah Cummings
I have been an XL fan of Devo since I was in high school in the 1970s. Their records only sound better with time.
Henry Rollins
If I’m riding my bike I just replay the same scenarios over and over in my head, like I haven’t had a new mental adventure since high school. So that’s what I like about books on tape, so my mind can’t wander anywhere.
David Sedaris
For me it’s about supporting our Indigenous kids and completing that whole journey: early childhood, primary school, high school, university and then career. I want to be a part of that process all the way, wearing lots of different hats.
Adam Goodes
I worked as a secretary, a waitress and a dance teacher – all in high school.
Jennie Garth
I went to a public high school and most of the comedy was coming from the black kids and the Asian kids and the Hispanic kids. And, the coolest kids to me where always the black kids. They were always fashion forward and they always dressed the coolest. They were always the best dancers, and just the coolest people.
Brett Ratner
If you’d have asked me when I was auditioning for High School Musical if I ever thought I was going to play a Marine.
Zac Efron
Everybody is who he was in high school.
Calvin Trillin
It was difficult showing up in Grade 1 as Pierre Elliott Trudeau’s son, it was difficult to become a high school teacher as Pierre Elliott Trudeau’s son. That’s something that I’ve lived with all my life. What people don’t necessarily remember is that my father was an incredibly present dad as a prime minister.
Justin Trudeau
I want to get away from the high school thing and do other types of roles.
Shannon Elizabeth
I wanted to be a writer since I was in high school, but I never thought it was possible.
Ellen Bass
After high school I went to the San Francisco Art Institute, and I began a formalized art education where we went through the history of art but we also went through the art of my contemporaries.
Kehinde Wiley
We give scholarships to high school kids and a new library of books to every preschool child in the county where I was born. I didn’t have books at home so I did all my reading at school. I love books and I believe that helping kids to read gives them a great start in life.
Dolly Parton
I had never done any theater in high school, which actually worked to my benefit. I didn’t develop any bad habits.
David James Elliott
I grew up in Synagogue in the boys’ choir. We didn’t listen to music in the house; only at temple. Then I went to a mostly African American high school on the South Side of Chicago and joined a gospel choir.
Mandy Patinkin
But I got drafted out of high school, and my mother wasn’t having it. She was like, you’re not about to think that you can just play ball, because if you get hurt, you’re going to be out of luck.
Shemar Moore
At my high school graduation, I graduated from home school, so it was pregnant teens and gang members. But, when I got on stage, there were kids in the background who all screamed, “Marry me!,” very loud.
Portia de Rossi
I was also sitting in from the middle of senior year of high school at Sweet Basil, it was a great club in New York.
Jon Gordon
I went to a high school reunion a couple years ago and realized that the kids who were the most unusual in high school are the ones who are the most interesting now and the ones who were popular are dull and boring.
Anderson Cooper
In high school, every last one of the passing schemes was designed for me.
Antonio Gates
When I started to take literature and poetry classes, I just started to get inspired by these new incredible works of art that I had never seen or heard of before. I wrote a lot of bad high-school poetry, just like pretty much everyone did, I think, at some point. For me, the inspiration never really stopped.
M. Ward
I think we stumbled onto our own sort of lore back in high school. We weren’t with the drinkers, we were more the psychedelic warriors. We sat around watching horror films.
Avey Tare
When I went to Catholic high school in Philadelphia, we just had one coach for football and basketball. He took all of us who turned out and had us run through a forest. The ones who ran into the trees were on the football team.
George Raveling
I know I’m not sexy. In high school I was voted Most Likely to Masturbate.
Rodney Dangerfield
I remember what it was like in the 1960’s in rural Louisiana. Women did not have many options. My own best friend in high school had a baby at 16. I don’t want us to go back to those days.
Kim Gandy
A Christian high school is just like any other high school in the sense of the politics and all of these levels of who’s cool and what to wear.
Jena Malone
I didn’t always know I wanted to do music, I got more into music in high school. I always sort of liked the idea of psychology so I thought of being a therapist or someone who helps other people.
Alex Gaskarth
Like a lot of inwardly drawn young people, I spent a lot of time in libraries. At my high school, I often spent my lunch breaks there.
Henry Rollins
I needed an outlet in high school and came across painting. I’ve actually been painting longer than I’ve been acting. A movie is a collaborative effort, and with painting you just have yourself.
James Franco
In fact, if they didn’t let me commute, I would not have taken the role because I wanted to graduate high school with my classmates. I remember my agent’s jaw dropping when I told him if I couldn’t commute I didn’t want the role.
Sarah Chalke
I love the music, I love the times, so to me that was exciting personally just to play something that starts in 1986 with graduating high school, we’ve got a great soundtrack in the pilot.
Will Estes
There is a lot going on in high schools, and I think what we portray is fairly accurate
Chi McBride
Usually the bullies are the most insecure. I was bullied and it’s hard, you feel like high schools never going to be over. Its four years of your life and you just have to remember the person picking on you has their own problems and their own issues. And you’re going to be ok.
Megan Fox
I was really into artwork in high school and my art teacher made it clear to me that it’s not really a career. She insisted that if I wanted to make a living this way, I would have to find a career that might actually reward me for the artwork.
Jack Larson
I was coming off of The O.C. and had very little interest in doing another teen drama. And then I got sent theGossip Girl book series, and I was like, ‘I might not be ready to leave high school after all.’
Josh Schwartz
Buffy’s high school was built on top of a vortex of evil, the Hellmouth. And whose wasn’t?
Sarah Vowell
Why can’t we just be nice? It’s like, we grow up, and then we get right back into high school.
Jennifer Lawrence
My high-school dream was to be in a band, pay my rent and eat – and I’ve been able to do that for 20 years. So I’m completely content.
Evan Dando
I didn’t go out on one date in high school. I played guitar and sang and wrote my own music and poetry and stuff when I was a teenager.
Kathy Bates
Yeah, I did some small parts in high school and the first year of college and then fairly soon thereafter I settled into the backstage scenery, and then at the University of Maryland I was doing posters for their productions.
Jim Henson
To go and accomplish a dream at 15, it doesn’t feel like you have all that much to lose because you’re in high school. You’re being home schooled. You get to kind of go for it in a different way. Your parents are still in charge.
Emma Stone
The junior high schools and high schools of America have forgotten to teach one of the most important courses of all. Investing.
Peter Lynch
Writing has always felt like a compulsion. Even at high school there’d be times when people would ask me if I wanted to go and hang out and I’d sit home and write instead.
Amanda Hocking
Training the workforce of tomorrow with today’s high schools is like trying to teach kids about today’s computers on a 50-year-old mainframe.
Bill Gates
To compete in a global economy, our students must continue their education beyond high school. To make this expectation a reality, we must give students the tools they need to succeed, including the opportunity to take a college entrance exam.
Jennifer Granholm
When I was in 7th grade, we were all given an exam. It was science and math, and the boys who did well were skipped ahead so that when they got to be juniors or seniors in high school they would be able to go to the local community college and take calculus and physics there. And I wasn’t skipped ahead.
Eileen Pollack
Ultimately, I felt fortunate, because in many ways I did identify with aspects of being gay that were very stereotypical. I was a big theatre kid in high school, I was creative, I was very emotionally sensitive, even hypersensitive. I loved female divas.
Christopher Rice
I grew up in Denver, Colorado. After high school I went to Vegas.
Paul Taylor
If I can help a kid feel more comfortable in their skin because they’re struggling with maybe the things I struggled with in high school, that’s great.
Abby Wambach
Just before my final year of high school, my brother, sister and I moved with my mother to San Francisco.
Eric Allin Cornell
I want to tell any young girl out there who’s a geek, I was a really serious geek in high school. It works out. Study harder.
Sheryl Sandberg
And that’s how show business is like in Israel – it’s very, very small. It kind of feels like a high school environment, you know? Everyone knows everyone and if you come to Israel for a month, you’ll meet half of the actors on different occasions – not to mention in the doctors office!
Meital Dohan
With ‘Brick,’ the style with language and the way it was shot was to create a world obviously elevated from the very first frame above a typical high school.
Rian Johnson
I was sports editor for my high school newspaper, but I think I shied away from journalism.
Jenna Bush
I never thrived in high school.
Barbie Ferreira
Even now that I’m married and 28, my room’s still intact the way it was when I went to high school.
Jordana Brewster
Horrible date all through high school and college. Here’s an impression of me on a date in high school. Come on, chug it!
David Spade
How do I put this? ‘Glee’ is like ‘High School Musical’ if ‘High School Musical’ had its stomach punched and its lunch money stolen.
Cory Monteith
In 1957, when I was in second grade, black children integrated Central High School in Little Rock, Arkansas. We watched it on TV. All of us watched it. I don’t mean Mama and Daddy and Rocky. I mean all the colored people in America watched it, together, with one set of eyes.
Henry Louis Gates
In high school, girls started wearing high-waisted pants with their shirts tucked into them. I don’t get what that’s about.
Dylan O’Brien
A lot of the turning points happen in high school and in college, and it defines a lot of how you see the world and how you decide to defend yourself from the world. Some people – their defense mechanism is, I’m really smart or I’m sexy or I’m the leader. And other people – they hide or they make jokes.
Judd Apatow
In high school football, the coach kept me on the bench all year. On the last game of the season, the crowd was yelling, We want Youngman! We want Youngman! The coach says, Youngman – go see what they want!
Henny Youngman
A high school student shouldn’t smoke cigarettes. You can’t comfort someone with money either. And fooling around with someone’s feelings…Trying out someone when you’re not even interested. That’s something you deserve to get hit for.
Cheon Eunbi
I’ve been singing my whole life. I’d randomly sing in the hallways at high school, and all my friends would be like, ‘You should sing on ‘Canadian Idol’!” It definitely gassed me!
The Weeknd
I hated high school. I was not the greatest student, participated in no activities, and spent most of my time hanging out in my parking lot.
Sarah Dessen
I went to Willoughby Girls High, I finished my high school certificate and then I did shorthand and typing the next year. Then started travelling and never used it since.
Evonne Goolagong Cawley
The funny guy doesn’t get the girl until later in life. High school, college, everyone still wants the brooding, dangerous guy you shouldn’t have.
Will Ferrell
As a 9th grader, I competed with the high school kids and out of 600 people, I finished 10th.
Bo Jackson
I liked to scrapbook and collage a whole lot in high school. Im always ripping things out of magazines, and always collecting quotes from the Internet. When I was 17, I loved AIM. I was obsessed with my buddy list!
Jenna Ushkowitz
Four times a year, Warner Bros. Records send out their little statements, and they’re like eight pages with all the countries from all over the world, and I end up getting a check for $48. But I think, obviously, the Ramones make some good money, because they must get a writer’s share from the Rock ‘N’ Roll High School.
P. J. Soles
Hairstyles change, and skirt lengths, and slang, but high school administrations? Never.
Stephen King
I looked back at some high school journals and discovered that I definitely wanted to be a writer, but not necessarily comedy.
Allison Silverman
I didn’t go to high school, I didn’t go to college, I didn’t have women’s studies. All of my feminist ideals and education have been built around art and my friends and community. And so it’s still growing.
Kathleen Hanna
And now life has become the future. Every moment of your life is lived for the future-you go to high school so you can go to college so you can get a good job so you can get nice house.
Ellen Hopkins
I’m just one of the kids, and all because the students at Hamilton Heights High School listened to the facts, educated their parents and themselves, and believed in me.
Ryan White
Everyone is gonna have a bad day, everyone is gonna have a bad game. The questions are: How do you recover? What builds your character? I decided one day early on in high school that I wanted to be great at basketball, not just a good basketball player.
Gilbert Arenas
I did all the musicals in high school, and I loved it. And then I got to theater school at college, and was like, “No, I’m a serious actor. I want to do Shakespeare. I want to do classical theater.” I took myself very seriously.
Timothy Omundson
I was raised with “Laurel and Hardy” and “I Love Lucy” and Jerry Lewis, and I just loved it. And I had a friend in high school and we would just laugh all day and put on skits. You know, it’s the Andy Kaufman thing or the Marty Short thing where you’re performing in your bedroom for yourself.
Steve Martin
People, when they come up to me, are like, “Did we go to high school together? Or did I make out with you at sleepaway camp?” And oftentimes, yes, that is the answer, because I went to a giant high school and made out with everybody.
Adam Pally
I’ve done so many funny jobs. I worked at a farmer’s market through high school. I worked in the stock room of Ralph Lauren. I graduated to salesperson at Ralph Lauren, which was a big deal to me. I’ve been a P.A. I’ve been a stand-in. I’ve been an assistant’s assistant.
Allison Williams
I didn’t really get into boys until my junior year of high school, when I had my first boyfriend. But for the most part I was always playing sports, so I was too busy for them!
Jennie Finch
It wasn’t until late high school and early college that I gained enough size and skill to make me welcome on intramural basketball teams.
Paul D. Boyer
You go from high school, to the NBA, and you’re thrown in the fire.
Dwight Howard
I was a tennis player in high school and college.
Kirsten Gillibrand
I went to Midwood High School in Brooklyn and then to Brooklyn college for 1 1/2 years.
Didi Conn
I grew up in Glen Ellyn, which is about 20 miles west of Chicago. I attended Glenbard South High School and University of Illinois. I didn’t study acting until I moved to Los Angeles after college, but the fact that I was raised in the Chicago area set the stage for all of my comedic and acting sensibilities.
Ryan McPartlin
If there is hell, it was modeled after junior high school.
Lewis Black
Actually, the year anniversary of what you just heard, my son Grahame and I are going to be in a play together, and I’m acting for the first time in front of an audience that doesn’t consist of a high school drama class.
Phil Lesh
My mom and dad met at Anaheim High School. After they got married, all they wanted to do was have four children, and they did.
Gwen Stefani
I want to get away from the social vampires in Tucson. The people who have no lives of their own and meet me and know who I am and feel entitled to say negative things. I have good friends here, especially in the bands. But a lot of it is just like high school.
Neko Case
When I was in junior high school, the teachers voted me the student most likely to end up in the electric chair.
Sylvester Stallone
I started performing in high school. There was a pretty great drama department at my school, and that’s when I started doing plays and musicals.
Missi Pyle
I remember being in high school and my mother would say, “What about such-and-such boy?” I’m like, “Oh mom, he’s too nice,” we don’t like the nice boys when we’re 16. I’d say, “He’s not attractive,” and she’d say “All young people are attractive.” And they are, and I get that.
Rosemarie DeWitt
I was teaching drum lessons at a few high schools – everything from marching to classical to rock and jazz. I found that really rewarding, having to explain my thought process, having to think about stuff that I take for granted or as second nature.
Glenn Kotche
I finished school, because I started when I was thirteen, so basically around 16 or 17, I just focused on finishing high school.
Jhene Aiko
But lots of emerging racial tensions in California have nothing to do with whites: Filipinos and Samoans are fighting it out in San Francisco high schools. Merced is becoming majority Mexican and Cambodian. They may be fighting in gangs right now, but I bet they are also learning each other’s language.
Richard Rodriguez
“Literature” is written material that, 100 years after the death of the author, is forced upon high school students.
Tom Clancy
My freshman year of high school I joined the chess and math clubs.
Eric Allin Cornell
I’m not very good in a classroom sort of setting. I never was. I was kind of a clown in high school – got suspended a lot.
Bobby Cannavale
Yeah, I’ve only been acting since I was 18 out of high school.
Dylan O’Brien
I didn’t like to dress up in high school. I wore pajamas all the time. Or I would have my hair in a high bun from dance, and just wear dance clothes.”
Heather Morris
The first time I ever spoke to John Cassavetes was at a Lakers game. I got up to go for a hot dog, and he was coming in the opposite direction. I don’t know who said hello first, but we started talking, and it turned out that he went to high school with my first wife, Alice.
Peter Falk
Capitalism would have never let me be a filmmaker, living in Flint, Michigan with a high school education. I was going to have to make that happen myself.
Michael Moore
I knew what I wanted to do when I was 13 and I had to go through four years of high school to get out. That’s a blessing, because I never had to lay on my bed staring up at the ceiling going, ‘What am I going to do with my life?’
John Mayer
My parents’ biggest thing was that they just wanted me to graduate high school and go to college. They couldn’t fathom me acting for the rest of my life.
Mila Kunis
I stopped going to high school when I met Big Pun, which wasn’t the smartest thing. So I never got my diploma. When I went to prison, it’s mandatory to get your GED if you don’t have a high school diploma.
Remy Ma
In my freshman year of high school, I don’t think I had a single date. I was really shy, really timid and quiet. I had my first real date when I was a sophomore, with a girl from church.
Eddie Guerrero
Friends aren’t any more important than breath or blood to a high school senior.
Betty Ford
In those days great teachers at Shortridge [High School] were celebrities. I would look up to them.

It wasn’t until I went to Korea out of high school and got exposed to the martial arts for the first time and was just completely enamored with the physical ability of the martial arts and making my black belt.
Chuck Norris
I treat Hollywood as my high school.
Charlie Puth
I teach high school math. I sell a product to a market that doesn’t want it, but is forced by law to buy it.
Dan Meyer
I actually started out as a poet in high school. I published in small literary magazines for probably about ten years. I entered the Yale Younger Poet contest every year, until I was too old to be a younger poet, and I never got more than a form rejection letter from them.
L. E. Modesitt, Jr.
I taught high school for one year in Deerfield Beach, Fla., and in the end, it was such an enjoyable experience breaking up fights daily, that I decided to return to the combat zone of Afghanistan.
Allen West
When people ask where I studied to be an ambassador, I say my neighborhood and my school. I’ve tried to tell my kids that you don’t wait until you’re in high school or college to start dealing with problems of people being different. The younger you start, the better.
Andrew Young
You ever buy a book and not read it? You feel almost guilty having it up on a bookshelf. People are like, “Hey, how’s that book?” “I haven’t read it.” “Oh, did you just buy it?” “I’ve had it since high school.” “Well, can I borrow it?” “No.”
Jim Gaffigan
If you’re in high school, just know there is a big world out there and you can be anyone you want to be.
Kristen Bell
I grew up in a high school where it was very conservative, and I felt like people disapproved of me, and I felt like an outsider.
Madonna Ciccone
It doesn’t take a lot to get me motivated. I’m a studio rat. When I was in high school and I would walk into a recording studio, it felt like this magical place, this temple, this womb that I could escape into.
Lenny Kravitz
High school – those are your prime suffering years.  They don’t get better suffering than that.
Steve Carell
I’m living in a world where there are LGBTQ straight alliances at high schools. I feel pretty psyched on that.
Kathleen Hanna
It’s definitely a shock to go from being 15 in high school to working. There’s no real cushion there. There’s no preparation at all. You learn by doing.
Emma Stone
High School Musical has been a blessing and a gift.
Zac Efron
My sister is an artist and an interior designer. She went to high school for art. I went to high school for music.
Maira Kalman
I was voted best-looking kid in high school but, as you can see, things changed. I used to say I was a 260-pound Woody Allen. You can make that 295-pound now.
James Gandolfini
A priest friend of mine has cautioned me away from the standard God of our childhoods, who loves you and guides you and then, if you are bad, roasts you: God as a high school principal in a gray suit who never remembered your name but is always leafing unhappily through your files.
Anne Lamott
Anyone look back at their high school career and just shudder at what you got away with and didn’t die?
Christopher Titus
Old is always fifteen years from now.
Bill Cosby
For as long as I wanted to swim, I also wanted to do something on TV. My best friend in high school, we used to pretend like we had a TV show, and we had this dream of being the next ‘Kate Allie.’ Having that kind of a shtick.
Summer Sanders
I threw all my clothes away from high school.
Iman Shumpert
Well my music was different in high school; I was singing about love—you know, things I don’t care about anymore.
Lady Gaga
I had teachers in high school to point me in the direction of the University of Indiana School of Music, and after IU, I went on to study at the Academy of Arts in Philadelphia. I graduated in 2006.
Ailyn Perez
I love Steven Wright. I was in high school in the ’80s, and there was a lot of stand up on television.
Demetri Martin
I dated the same girl all through high school.
Mark Hoppus
Everybody’s got to do something… I’d been on my own since an early age and I thought I better find something to do to buy biscuits and stuff. From high school onwards I was earning my way with photography, one way or another, working in darkrooms and taking pictures of weddings, neighbors’ children and so on.
Elliott Erwitt
In high school I wanted to be a rock star and was in a lot of bands.
Adam Sandler
I wanted to be a vet, a nurse, a chef – I mean, anything but the music industry. But once I hit high school, the bug really bit me. You can’t deny where you come from and what’s in your genes, and music definitely was. I haven’t looked back since.
Hillary Scott
I hope I give girls an opportunity to realize that they can swim and go to school at the same time. It’s not to be given up once they get out of high school. They can continue doing it for the rest of their lives.
Debbie Meyer
Well, I had a lot of help from my father with the soldering and so on, and he was very good at math and was fascinated with computers, and so I was fortunate enough to have a bunch of exposure going all the way back to high school – this was in the 1960s.
Mitchell Kapor
I played football growing up in junior high and high school.
Ryan Merriman
These movies are like my kids. I just love them to death. Some of them go to Harvard and some of them can barely graduate high school.
Barry Sonnenfeld
I’m not a person who thinks the world would be entirely different if it was run by women. If you think that, you’ve forgotten what high school was like.
Madeleine Albright
It is my first morning of high school. I have seven new notebooks, a skirt I hate, and a stomachache.
Laurie Halse Anderson
I had done plays in high school. It was something I always wanted to do since I was little. I was a drama major at UC-Irvine.
Jon Lovitz
I was very interested in politics in college and was heading to be a lawyer. I have a degree in economics and I was interested in it. I hadn’t really gotten super serious about it and I’d done a lot of student politics in high school. I really think it would be interesting and fun and challenging to go into politics.
Jay Roach
I was very popular in high school.
NeNe Leakes
At North Hollywood High School, I was shunned by everyone. I would sit down in the cafeteria, and students would get up from the table and walk away. They thought I was from the Mafia.
Philip Zimbardo
I did high school wrestling. I was first in the state of Florida and ninth in the nation in folkstyle. Freestyle and folkstyle wrestling I did for years.
Lacey Evans
I had one or two steady girlfriends in high school, but then in college, it was three, four… I went crazy. At one point I had three separate girlfriends, running around mad.
Robin Williams
I need to eliminate ‘like’ from my vocabulary. I begin sentences with, ‘That’s seriously like ‘ I hear myself talking in this Los Angeles high-school student kind of way, and I hate it.
Eli Roth
Although I performed in high school, my first real experience with theater was performing with a student-run organization at Vanderbilt University called The Original Cast where I learned that I loved performing and especially loved theater people.
Nancy Allen
What did that mean? Where could it go? He was a death diety. I was a high school senior.
Meg Cabot
My English teachers gave me a copy of Atwood’s ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ when I left high school, which has always been very special to me – it was the novel that introduced me to dystopian fiction. I’m also influenced by Edgar Allan Poe, Dickens, John Wyndham and Middle English dream-visions.
Samantha Shannon
When I was in high school, I was really into string theory and superstring theory and read ‘Scientific American.’ It’s fascinating.
Sam Trammell
I got to choreograph a halftime dance with the cheerleading squad, which was all-female, at my high school. And I was the only boy, at the time. We did this whole routine to ‘Maria Maria’ by Santana, and ‘Thong Song’ by Sisqo – it was a mix.
Trace Lysette
I didn’t grow up in the Catholic church, but I went to a Catholic high school and a Catholic college, and the Jesuit priests are not saints floating around campus.
Chris Sullivan
Then I tried out for the Fontana High School drum line, in Riverside, and I did really well. I got second chair, and played snare in that drum line for three years.
Travis Barker
I was in orchestra in high school, but I really started when a friend of mine who’s a drummer showed me some things. I was always just really fascinated with drums, it was the instrument I was always drawn towards. My ear sort of went to rhythmic aspects of music and songs.
Carla Azar
They’re coming out of high school exhausted. The pressure in high school is killing these kids. By the time they get to college, they have been fighting for three or four years to get the perfect SAT scores and get into A.P. classes.
Debora Spar
My mother didn’t feel very satisfied about the English background that I had received in the public schools in Littleton. So, she insisted that I take a year under the high school level. So, I was in boarding school nine years.
Ella Baker
He (Tommy Pettitte [father] coached me as kid. He bought all the books and videos and tried to learn as much about pitching as he could. But once I was in high school, he never tried to be my coach.
Andy Pettitte
I spent my last year of high school in Latin America, and there’s a edge of salsa under all of my rhythms
Stephen Stills
So basically, I graduated high school a semester early.
Jessica Szohr
The most influential thing was the two Chris Rock specials that came out when I was in high school. I was obsessed with that stuff.
Aziz Ansari
For me, church was about not only religion but about community. A woman in my grandmother’s church helped pay for my SAT classes when I was in high school and drove me there every week.
Jamila Woods
In my family, education was something you endured. My parents weren’t educated past high school, and the only book in our house was a ‘Reader’s Digest’ condensed book. Can you imagine?
Dawn Steel
I had no idea when I graduated from high school and then from graduate school what I wanted to do with my life. I had no idea that I was ever going to be an actor.
Peter Falk
Gossip is one thing, hurtful gossip is completely another, and even in high school we weren’t THAT mean.
Nicholas Sparks
A generation earlier, I think that somebody from my background probably would not have felt fully comfortable at a college like Princeton. But, by the time I graduated from high school, things had changed.
Samuel Alito
Few things are more satisfying than seeing your own children have teenagers of their own.
Doug Larson
I welcome opposing viewpoints, but I should warn you that you’ll be facing off against the 2nd-place finisher at the 1981 Charleston County High-School Debate Tournament. And whatever became of that county champ who argued in favor of tractor safety modifications? Last time I checked, she didn’t have her own show.
Stephen Colbert
Yeah. When you want what’s real and you try to find that in high school, you might as well be looking for a mossy rock beside a babbling brook on the corner of Sixth and Pine in downtown Seattle.
Deb Caletti
I was a baseball player. I played in high school and a little bit in college. I was a catcher. I don’t know if I could have played any other position. As a catcher, you’re always on the ball.
Tim DeKay
Yeah, I left Idaho at 17. You know, I graduated high school a year early and just, you know, the typical story, packed up my car and moved out.
Aaron Paul
I always knew when I graduated from high school I’d go to college. I never thought about what I was walking away from . . . I just wanted to study literature and writing.
Gaby Hoffmann
I think your teenage years define your musical roots forever. You’re always looking for a theme for your high school years.
Patrick Wilson
Thats the fun of going to a high school reunion: its seeing the people who you were close to all those years ago, and re-exploring the relationships of the past.
Jon Hurwitz
I don’t want to get too detailed into it, but when you’re a good high school running back, you can almost be whatever type of runner you want to be. If you’re a good size and a good athlete, you can be whatever type of runner you want.
Barry Sanders
I really began to love to read while in high school, and my favorite authors were my heroes: J.D. Salinger, Kurt Vonnegut.
Louis Sachar
High School is the place where poetry goes to die.
Billy Collins
I was a senior in high school when I decided I wanted to work on ants as a career. I just fell in love with them, and have never regretted it.
E. O. Wilson
I came out to Hollywood when I was just 18, and my dad, he was really into Hollywood and theater and art, and I guess growing up, he exposed me to a lot of culture, and I just started making Super-8 films in high school and decided I wanted to be a filmmaker.
Bill Paxton
I think being mean to people in high school is healthy. It’s sort of like you’re in this situation with all these other kids and sometimes you need to get your aggression out. And if you’d had people be mean to you before, it really does build character.
Lizzy Caplan
I was a very awkward high schooler, especially in early high school. I had the middle part with a swoop, all that. It was the late ’90s!
Aaron Tveit
I hitchhiked at high school. My parents thought was a perfectly normal thing to do even though God knows I got blown a lot of times riding home from school.
John Waters
Give me 10 high school pitchers, let me spend a week with them, and I’ll show you 10 pitchers who won’t balk. It’s not that difficult, and they better learn it.
Doug Harvey
I kept doing my own thing, working out with weights, wrestling, and doing other spots until I graduated from high school. Then I made a conscious decision to pursue MMA seriously and full time.
Robbie Lawler
[On refusing to do nude movie scenes:] There are certain people who should know what you look like naked. I just don’t think your high-school algebra teacher should be one of them.
Julia Roberts
The way my brain processes information is quite odd. I mean, I have Attention Deficit Disorder and another learning disability I can’t even spell. I don’t even have a high school diploma. I’m smart, but you can’t prove it on paper.
Ron White
I finished high school there and then I went to Rhode Island School of Design.
Stephen Sprouse
I’ve always liked to dress up. I’d choose a halter top over a Led Zeppelin T-shirt when I was in high school.
Pat Smear
I played sports growing up in high school.
Erin Heatherton
I really focused on three things in high school – my company, basketball and my school work.
Ben Casnocha
It is one thing to take as a given that approximately 70 percent of an entering high school freshman class will not attend college, but to assign a particular child to a curriculum designed for that 70 percent closes off for that child the opportunity to attend college.
James S. Coleman
I was the hallway clown in high school.
J. B. Smoove
At different points in my life, I had grappled with the idea of going into the priesthood – in high school or law school. Where it ends, I’m not quite sure. Perhaps it ends with death, grappling with one’s spirituality.
James McGreevey
My mom was a pretty hard worker. She worked her ass off, but I’d say we were middle class. I had a car in high school, so I loved the idea that I could mimic this lifestyle.
Reggie Watts
Throughout high school, I was obsessed with magazines. I used to just comb through them and plaster things on my wall.
Tracee Ellis Ross
I love sports. I was an athlete in high school, and my school was so small we didn’t have a football team, so it’s the one sport I didn’t bother to learn the rules to because I never went to game.
Katie Aselton
I did plays in high school, but I was convinced you couldn’t make a living doing it. You don’t have a lot of options in Indiana anyway, though, so I didn’t want to stay there. I graduated early and worked a bunch of really odd jobs, and then I joined the Marines.
Adam Driver
You write for the people in high school who ignored you. We all do.
Carolyn Kizer
That was my intention, was to have it be from the perspective of my high-school-aged self, and to try and emulate the music that I listened to at that time. So to write essentially like a pop-punk song about musicals. I wanted the dichotomy of the tone of the music with the lyrics and my singing voice.
Laura Benanti
I was in high school and 9/11 happened. My boyfriend joined the army and I was extremely disgusted with this war fervour.
Abby Martin
I think as a young person, leaving high school or college, you’re like, ‘All right, all right, enough already.’ But now there’s a part of me that would like to go back and relish those moments when you could sit down and just… read a book.
Phillipa Soo
I went out with the same girl throughout all four years of high school.
Jesse Metcalfe
I felt like the big geek in high school. And I still feel like a big geek.
Leslie Bibb
We’ve got to go to the people with bold ideas and candidates of conviction – we’ve got to be hotter than high school love.
Jim Hightower
I was very serious about being a priest, twice in my life. Almost joined the Montfort Seminary after I graduated from high school. Almost went back in the seminary during college.
Rudy Giuliani
I remember I took a music course in junior year of high school, and some girl brought in ‘Teardrops On My Guitar,’ and she was like, ‘Isn’t this song great?’ And everyone was like, ‘Who’s Taylor Swift?’ And now, every time I listen to Taylor Swift, I remember that moment.
I was a high school wrestler. I was city champion.
Bret Hart
I got involved with classical music when I was in high school and it’s followed me throughout my entire life and probably had a profound effect on my life.
Benjamin Carson
My history is pretty different from the history of most professors. I was a high school dropout. I dropped out and became a science fiction writer.
Daniel Goldstein
I dropped out of high school. I really had no interest in doing any school work whatsoever.
Bobby Flay
I was named Class Clown in the high school yearbook, so I was always turning to comedy and laughter to heal and to get me through things.
Guillermo Diaz
When I was in high school, I loved paintball. I saved up my allowances and started my own paintball supply company. Everyone thought I was just some obsessed kid, but today the company is one of the biggest paintball suppliers in Canada.
Ryan Holmes
In high school, I won a prize for an essay on tuberculosis. When I got through writing the essay, I was sure I had the disease.
Constance Baker Motley
I played basketball in high school, and I love watching sports – I’ll watch everything except maybe hockey.
Andy Roddick
When I was in high school, girls made fun of me for liking vampire movies. Now, I’d be their king. Time machine, where are you?
Dana Gould
High School is like a spork: it’s a crappy spoon and a crappy fork, so in the end it’s just plain useless.
John Mayer
I wrote a lot of poetry in the last two years of high school, all about the same girl I was in love with. That was pretty awful. Did you know that in poetry, every line does not need to rhyme?
Hari Kondabolu
I married my high school sweetheart, and I do have two kids.
Nate Torrence
I think in high school there’s so many cliques. You’re never safe.
Blake Lively
Teenagers are like atoms when they’re moving at hundreds of miles an hour and bouncing off each other. Everybody’s got such a crazy hormonal drive and reacting to each other differently and getting upset over little things. High school puts all these potential explosions in one place.
Anton Yelchin
As I graduated high school, it didn’t faze me anymore. Right now, I don’t even care what people think of me. I’m happy with myself.
Nicole Polizzi
Me in high school, I was kind of a loner. I had a handful of friends. I’d eat my lunch in my car every day in my senior year. I went to ballet. I was a ballerina, so I was very focused on that. You kind of have to be. That was two-thirds of my week, going to ballet class.
Olesya Rulin
Best advice was from a man by the name of James Dean. “Dream as if you’ll live forever, live as if you’ll die today”. I read that my senior year in high school and have never stopped since.
Kelly Blatz
My high school coach was Ray O’Conner. He has coached a lot of players that have signed professional contracts, and many of those have gone on to play in the major leagues.
Robin Yount
Getting on stage, for me, was a huge thing when I first started. And back in high school, everyone was in rock bands and I was a singer/songwriter. It just seems kind of lame.
Tyler Hilton
From elementary school on up through junior high school, I loved to perform. But I put it all away during high school and college. I thought, “That’s not actually something you do with your life.” But then I was compelled to try it after college. I just got overcome.
Lisa Kudrow
In high school I was on the basketball team, but the coach did something I didn’t dig and the next day he looked up and saw me practising with the football team.
Charles Mingus
I got kicked out of high school, so I couldn’t get into very many colleges.
David Talbot
It was just a little weird coming into the seventh season (of ‘Gilmore Girls’), where everyone is already set in their ways and their dynamics, and you sort of feel like you’re coming into a party late. So I was just, like, ‘Ugh! How do I make friends?’ It’s like high school dynamics!
Krysten Ritter
The people who run the major banks have MBAs and wear suits. And when those people in suits come to the homes of people who don’t have a high school diploma, don’t even speak English, and offer them a home at zero percent down, that doesn’t make a hell of a lot of sense.
Ramin Bahrani
When I was entering high school, my dad had me going around to different high schools, playing open gyms. A lot of coaches thought I was coming to their schools. If I would have done it over, I would have just stayed at one particular school just to play pickup basketball in the summertime.
Shaun Livingston
Hell, when I was in high school, a “drive-by shooting” meant somebody had their rear end hanging out a car window!
Jeff Foxworthy
I dated a teacher in high school. Yeah, it didn’t make me cooler. And a lot of you are like ‘that’s cause you were homeschooled’.
Daniel Tosh
To be perfectly honest with you, I was partying a lot in school. I didn’t have any good study habits from high school because I just kind of got by on being a jock.
Michael Biehn
When I was in high school, I liked to pretend that I was a Russian foreign exchange student. I would do things like go into a pizza restaurant and tell them Id never had pizza before, and theyd bring me into the kitchen and show me how to make an American pizza. Its really fun.
Misha Collins
I didn’t have that many friends my first few years of high school. It was very cliquey and I’m super shy, so it was hard to make friends.
Dylan O’Brien
My acting teacher in high school was really influential, and we still keep in touch.
Brandon Jay McLaren
I worked at a nursing home though high school… There’s a lost appreciation for a generation that has so much to tell us when we’re so full of self-help books and doctors on TV.
Bonnie Hunt
I tried to get as far away from home as possible after I graduated from high school because I had a hard time being a kid.
Catherine Opie
Mom, thanks for letting me drop out of high school. Haha!
Dave Grohl
I wasn’t really geeky. In terms of the high school hierarchy, I was very much in the middle ground. You have the really popular guys, you have the nerdy guys, and then you have the people who really don’t care – and that was me. I wasn’t really picked on or anything like that.
Callan McAuliffe
With Die Hard it was just something that I, you know, I grew up with those movies. I made a Die Hard movie with my friends in my backyard during high school. It was terrible.
Len Wiseman
I took Spanish in high school and I didn’t do too well in it. My Spanish teacher told me not to go on with Spanish anymore, so I was discouraged a little bit.
Tyler Posey
I was a musical theatre geek in high school and college.
Toks Olagundoye
I had no idea what art was. There was one art class in high school, but it didn’t make a big impression on me. Then I went to college and thought I’d become a writer.
Claes Oldenburg
I had an all right high school, even though I hated school. I wasn’t massively popular, but I was okay. But I wouldn’t want to do it again.
Channing Tatum
My chops are still up, even though I`m not still in high school.
Travis Barker
Akron, Ohio, is my home. I will always be here. I’m still working out at my old high school.
LeBron James
I had a weird high school because I graduated early when I was 16. I moved out to California, but I was only there for freshman and sophomore year, and I was a bit of a brainiac.
Shanley Caswell
Ive always had a booty even when I was a baby, and when I was in high school and was skinny, I still had the booty. In Hollywoods eyes, the perfect women has to be a stick figure, tall, blonde hair, with big boobs.
Coco Austin
I wasn’t bullied in high school, I was just ignored.
Gerard Way
I went to school at Radnor High School. And I went to a liberal arts college in St. Louis, Missouri, called Lindenwood College.
Lee Daniels
I dropped out of high school when I was, like, 15, so I just focused on doing music. It’s all I wanted to do; I didn’t want to work or anything else. I took all the negativity and obstacles that came with life, and I just put it in the music.
One of our key strategies has been to restructure traditional high schools into small learning communities with personalized attention and a range of options.
Thomas Menino
I played baseball growing up, second base, and then when I got to high school,it just didnt exist there.
Finn Wittrock
According to a study by Achieve Incorporated, Texas is the first state to make a college-prep curriculum the standard coursework in high school, starting with this year’s ninth grade class.
Rick Perry
I’d learned enough about circuitry in high school electronics to know how to drive a TV and get it to draw – shapes of characters and things.
Steve Wozniak
I didn’t go to high school, and I didn’t go to grade school either. Education, I think, is for refinement and is probably a liability.
H. L. Hunt
