Rosemary Mahoney
Well, Jeff Buckley for me is one of the greatest singers I’ve ever heard. And the reason why is he has an amazing range, amazing emotional power in his voice.

From a young age, watching my father embark on daring, and often dangerous, adventures in the name of Virgin almost become the norm. I’m not saying it became any less nerve-wracking waiting for his safe return – but, over time, it encouraged a new way of thinking for myself and my brother Sam.

Kellan Lutz
I definitely want to put my kids in gymnastics at an early age, whether that’s what they want to or not. Gymnastics just builds such a great fundamental strength at a young age, and they get great; they learn how to move with their body. I think that can translate to any sport later in life.

Duncan Sheik
I started playing music at a pretty young age.

I’ve always wanted to play Test cricket from a young age and that’s what you dream about. But you have to make sure you can contribute regardless of the format.
Joe Root
My mother got married at a very young age, but she did her B.A., B. Ed and M.A. after marriage.
Poonam Dhillon
Thanks to my parents, who had me traveling around the world mouth-first, I knew from a young age I wanted a career in food.
Andrew Zimmern
I think everybody identified at a pretty young age that I was fairly entranced with myself. And that I had to be tempered.
Rufus Wainwright
It’s the Tiger Woods effect. What he was able to accomplish at such a young age – he drew me to the game, and I can only speak for myself, but a lot of the players that are my age saw Tiger in his prime when we were all teenagers. We all wanted to be like him.
Tony Finau
For me, at a very young age, I knew I wanted to be in the entertainment industry; I wanted to be an announcer. I was very smitten at an early age with the voice I heard coming from a radio.
Mauro Ranallo
Today, most young women are exposed to technology at a very young age, with mobile phones, tablets, the Web or social media. They are much more proficient with technology than prior generations since they use it for all their school work, communication and entertainment.
Susan Wojcicki
I just found at a young age that I really wanted to be more competitive.
Ken Shamrock
I was a New York Jets fan growing up. My dad said I used to sit there at a very young age and watch football with him and tell him, ‘I’m going to play for that team one day.’
Saquon Barkley
Coming from a filmy background, I have seen everything growing up, but even at that point of time, it never really fascinated me. I did not like going to my dad’s shoots. We were taught not to get carried away with it from a very young age.
Sonakshi Sinha
I would walk into a room at a young age and I’d say, ‘Hi, Dad,’ and he would say, ‘SON, PROJECT YOUR VOICE. LET THEM KNOW YOU’RE IN THE ROOM. SHOULDERS BACK. CHEST OUT.’
Bruce Buffer
I don’t know whether it is important to study science at a young age, though current thinking emphasises the need.
Robert Winston
Both of my parents were raised in Christian homes, which was great. They instilled in us that God came first and they showed us what it was like to have a relationship with Christ. I accepted Christ at a young age, at the age of six years old, and just tried to play hockey and balance that.
Mike Fisher
I learned from a very young age that no one owes you anything and nobody’s gonna give you a damn thing. But you can have anything you want, if you work hard enough for it.
Branch Warren
I entered the industry at very young age, and I was like any normal girl at the age of 17 or 18. At that age, most girls are a little plump.
Hansika Motwani
I recognized from a young age that I wasn’t a football player; I played football.
Martellus Bennett
Chinese people of my parents’ generation who lived through the Cultural Revolution knew so much of death at such a young age, and the psychic toll those experiences left was immense. I knew the stories of the Cultural Revolution before knowing what the Cultural Revolution was.
Jenny Zhang
I sacrificed a lot, in terms of friendship and family, from working so much at such a young age, but I wouldn’t be where I am if I hadn’t.
Sasha Grey
With the mega-fame came the mega-downfall – you know, with the press and everything – and at a young age, it was very stressful to me.
Vanilla Ice
I was really good at a young age, but every day I had to walk in the house, and walk past my dad’s jersey framed on the wall because he was an Olympian, so I was like, all right, I haven’t done anything yet.
RJ Barrett
An educational foundation is only part of the equation. In order for creativity to flourish and imagination to take hold, we also need to expose our children to the arts from a very young age.
Michelle Obama
I grew up loving country music from a young age and wanted to sing more than I wanted to sit in school.
Carly Pearce
I was very fortunate to grow up with parents who love to travel, so I traveled from a young age. My dad’s a heart surgeon and goes to conferences all over the world. By the time I was seven, I traveled outside the country for the first time. We went to Paris. The next year, we went to London, and then Brussels.
Candice Accola
I got in the limelight at a young age. At age 19, people were already comparing me to Anderson Silva.
Jon Jones
I’ve felt very proud of British artists from a young age.
Vick Hope
The goal of my University education was to get into a medical college and equip myself to run a hospital in Kumbakonam left behind by my father, M.K. Sambasivan, who died at a young age in 1936.
M. S. Swaminathan
It’s such a thrilling part about being in a relationship at a young age, and all your feelings are apocalyptic, all your emotions are so huge.
Marc Webb
My dad was well known on the streets, shall we say, and he had a different lifestyle, which could spill into the home setting. Being exposed to that at a young age was difficult.
Troy Deeney
I loved numbers from a very young age. I feel like my mom led me there because, instead of giving me Game Boy and PlayStations and a TV, she gave me educational software on our family computer for Math and stuff.
Catriona Gray
I moved to Charlotte at a young age, and despite how much I like Charlotte, I’ve always had a fascination with my hometown.
Kenny Wallace
Anyone who hears enough laughter and applause at a young age will become an actor, whether they intend to or not.
John Lithgow
From a very young age, my main thing was always entertaining.
Gabby Barrett
Age is an issue of mind over matter. If you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter.
Mark Twain
I taught myself to read music at a very young age, so when I started to take lessons in school, the teachers used to give me other instruments to keep me busy, because I was more advanced than the other kids.
Stefon Harris
My roots were in acting. That’s all I wanted to be. Even though my father was a radio comedian, it wasn’t cool to say, at a young age, ‘I want to be a comedian.’
Albert Brooks
I was always into playing outside as a kid; being outdoors is just a part of who I am. I owe this to both my parents, who exposed me to hunting and fishing at a young age.
Brad Leone
It’s crazy how intelligent kids can be at a very young age and how they know what they know.
Aldis Hodge
Probably the happiest period in life most frequently is in middle age, when the eager passions of youth are cooled, and the infirmities of age not yet begun; as we see that the shadows, which are at morning and evening so large, almost entirely disappear at midday.
Eleanor Roosevelt
I figured out it was a social thing, what women were allowed to do. At a very young age, I decided I was not going to follow women’s rules.
Joan Jett
My brother was my first guru who introduced me to spiritualism at a very young age. He later even enrolled me into Ramakrishna Mission.
I never had little brothers, so I was totally not used to hearing a lot of cussing at a young age! I learned what ‘pull my finger’ meant the hard way.
Danica McKellar
Even when I came to United at such a young age, going to United it’s, of course, a massive club, but I know that they are willing to give youth a chance. That is what happened with me.
Andreas Pereira
People don’t understand being a child star is very hard because first off, to be a child star, you have to be very unique. These kids are talented to be able to do it at such a young age. At the same time, you go through the pressures of bullying and a lot of people not understanding.
Romeo Miller
I had dance training from a very young age, 3 or 4… It taught me how to present myself, about preparation and working in an ensemble, and its something that carries with me to this day.
Michelle Dockery
From a young age, I was a pretty good listener, a strong lady. Maybe it helped me that I never felt intimidated by anybody. Even at school, I was always strong. I believed in myself, in what I do.
Caster Semenya
My inspiration was my mom. She’s a great cook, and she still cooks, and we still banter back and forth about cooking. Growing up in a mostly Portuguese community, food was important and the family table was extremely important. At a very young age I understood that.
Emeril Lagasse
The one thing nobody was taught was how to deal with success, and I think that happens to everyone who makes it at a young age.
Ian Gillan
I found it quite pleasing to be alone from a very young age. The piano became my source of release.
Benjamin Clementine
I started playing on my grandmother’s organ at a really young age. I learned ‘Chopsticks’ and that kind of thing, but I didn’t really start picking it up and start taking it super seriously until I was probably about 13, 14.
Jordan Fisher
‘Poltergeist’ was the film that scarred me for life. I saw it at such a young age – 5 or 6 years old – and it has one of the creepiest doll sequences with the clown, and ever since then, I’ve just been fascinated by dolls.
James Wan
You can imagine the kind of dinner parties I had to go to at a young age… pretty dull.
Prince Harry
There is one thing on which most athletes and experts seem to agree. If you want to be an elite athlete, good nutrition at a young age is an important place to start.
Chuck Norris
My parents were never condescending to us. They treated us like adults from a very young age.
Isaac Hanson
I have wanted to write from a young age, but working with so many gifted authors and editors over the years has taught me so much. I doubt I would be where I am today without that amazing experience.
Julie Klassen
We have to understand that we should, at all times, have the right and the power to make decisions about our bodies. And that is an idea that must be taught at a young age. You can’t wait until a person is 18 years old and say, ‘Now you have the right’. You have to start that from the gate.
Jada Pinkett Smith
I liked rap from a young age, from listening to MC Hammer and Vanilla Ice.
Clint Dempsey
I’ve always worked from a young age and was never big on drinking or smoking, so whatever money I had I put into synths.
Jonas Blue
Well, from a young age we amassed quite an international archive of vintage clothing. This gave us the platform to begin experimenting with silhouette and understanding the cut and fit of clothing from around the world.
Julia Fox
I started off doing stuff in theatre in Letterkenny from quite a young age. It was just a hobby, something I enjoyed. Some kids like tennis or guitar. I just enjoyed musical theatre so my parents got me into classes.
Amybeth McNulty
I got married at a very young age, and of course, for all the wrong reasons, and ended up divorced and lost everything. It was a very difficult time in my life.
Willie Aames
I always loved jokes. It’s such a dumb, facile thing to say, but it’s true. I remember being a kid and getting those joke books from the Scholastic Book Club and loving comedy from a very young age.
Josh Gondelman
The Queen is not supposed to have a favourite or prefer anything. From a very young age, they are taught that if you fall down, you don’t make a face; you keep your emotions under control, and you don’t let other people know what you’re feeling. That’s a very different kind of way of thinking from how I was brought up.
Sarah Gadon
People don’t understand this, but I started very young, and I became very, very successful at a very young age. By the time I was 26 years old, I was a multimillionaire. And I started with nothing. And I was on the road 10, 11 months a year.
Jerry Weintraub
I started working at a really young age, so I didn’t even go to traditional high school.
Jessica Barden
I grew up on North Saginaw, the north side of Flint, which is considered the worst part and I was able to make it; I was able to make it by just making smart decisions from a very young age.
Claressa Shields
So my father was a person who never lied to me. If I had a question, he answered it. I knew a lot of things at a young age because I was intrigued.
Nick Cannon
The reason I’m not more political is because I have music. And from a young age, I needed it. After prison, my father came to America, joined the Army, fought in Vietnam – and was exposed to Agent Orange. He died a slow, horrible death. Music was my escape.
Gloria Estefan
Parents need to nourish spiritual values in their children from a very young age.
Mata Amritanandamayi
From a young age, I took an interest in the music and my mom noticed it.
Morgan Wallen
My mom’s a children’s television writer, so I was involved and around from a very young age. When I was eight, I did my first film with Rachel Ward and Bryan Brown, who are a quite well-respected Australian producer-director duo, and that just changed my whole perspective on what I could do in life and be.
Alycia Debnam-Carey
My mother was working on her college degree throughout my childhood, and being the youngest in the family, that meant being dragged to a lot of her classes. She majored in playwriting, so I was exposed to theatre from a very young age, and it was just the most magical world to me.
Valorie Curry
I wasn’t into pop music, even at a really young age.
John Varvatos
I have sketched since a young age, so there’s always been an artistic side, a visual side to my personality.
Mark Parker
As many of you know, my story begins where most people’s in the LGBT+ community begins… with fear. I knew I was different from my peers, my friends, and those around me when I started to discover who I was and who I identified as from a young age.
Calum Scott
I think I was just lucky to be brought up in a very musical family. My two older brothers were, and still are, very musical and very creative, and music was a big part of my life from a very young age, so it is quite natural for me to become involved in music in the way that I did.
Kate Bush
Even though my father was a radio comedian, it wasn’t cool to say, at a young age, ‘I want to be a comedian.’
Albert Brooks
Music has always been my protection against the world, from a very young age. I feel safe inside of a jam.
Trey Anastasio
I couldn’t really get a grasp on wrestling at a young age. I knew it was what my parents did, and they fought people. It scared the crap out of me, so I thought, ‘No, I can’t do that. I’ll get beaten up!’
I was always involved in the arts from a young age. I started studying classical piano at age four as a student of the Associated Board of the Royal School of Music.
Monica Raymund
My dad always took over teams, except for Washington, that were rebuilding, and you hear the taunting, the jokes, negative, awful things about the person you love. That hardens you at a young age.
J. B. Bickerstaff
Music was never an obligation for me; from a very young age, I understood it as a moment of freedom where you could express yourself. I realized how much joy it could bring and how much that meant to me.
Lara Fabian
Philanthropy has always been something that I’ve been kind of interested in because I think it was instilled at a very young age through my parents.
Serinda Swan
I didn’t have a school life like everyone else because I started working at a young age. That’s what I regret.
Shin Min-a
I was born in Iran, left at a very young age – less than a year old – and grew up and was educated in the West.
Hooman Majd
When a garment is in sync with your body and its proportions, it looks and feels amazing, and in France that is something that all women know from a young age.
L’Wren Scott
Vancouver is an amazing city and luckily, growing up in the Seattle area, I was able to immerse myself into the culture at a young age, traveling back and forth across the border for skating competitions as a youngster.
Apolo Ohno
At a very young age I was predicting outcomes, trying to take all the information and find the best route to wherever I was going. I avoided a lot of pitfalls because of that.
Jennifer Carpenter
I’ve always been interested in exploring the concept of child prodigies. When I was younger, I wrote a story about Mozart as a child and I just always loved this idea of young people who are able to take control of their lives and bring a whole lot of change at such a young age.
Marie Lu
I think losing your mother at such a young age does end up shaping your life massively. Of course it does, and now I find myself trying to be there and give advice to other people who are in similar positions.
Prince Harry
My aesthetic sense was formed at a young age by what surrounded me: the narrow residential spaces of Japan and the mental escapes from those spaces that took the forms of manga and anime.
Takashi Murakami
I wanted to be a gangsta from birth, not because of the music but moreso what I was seeing, what my uncles were doing. I was just fascinated with the street lifestyle from a young age.
Freddie Gibbs
I was always fast; I was always racing guys that were older than me and beating them, so I always had speed. I was able to make good cuts at a young age, on the side of the house with my dad, going through different plays, working on cuts and stuff like that.
Adrian Peterson
I started going to rock shows at a really young age, and seeing other young people make music definitely influenced me.
Frankie Cosmos
I was always fighting from a young age, in school and everywhere else. I didn’t have any fear of anything like that. I could really hurt people.
Nigel Benn
My dad never told me that when he was serving in World War II he had gotten married at a young age.
Bruce Buffer
Most entertainers start at a young age saying, ‘I don’t want to be normal. I don’t want a regular job.’… I think that’s something that’s innate.
My mom, she was, at a young age, caught up in the worldly ways. At that time, it was very intriguing to be out partying and having fun. As a young mother, she was caught in that.
Amar’e Stoudemire
I started golfing at a young age, and growing up with two older brothers, it made me mature a lot younger.
Lexi Thompson
I loved statistics from a young age. And I studied very much in Sweden. I used to be in the upper quarter of all courses I attended. But in St. John’s, I was in the lower quarter. And the fact was that Indian students studied harder than we did in Sweden. They read the textbook twice, or three times or four times.
Hans Rosling
I was attracted to cricket at a very young age. My father’s elder brother Akram Siddiq saw the passion for cricket in me, so he pushed me, and then another uncle – father of Kamran, Umar, and Adnan Akmal – advised my father to work hard on me, as he thought that I will make it big in cricket.
Babar Azam
I grew up on a farm in a small town where you do or say one thing and everybody knows about it. You see it happen, there’s always the town gossip – ‘Oh did you hear about so and so, or did you hear what went on in this household?’ So I learned at a very young age just to keep my mouth shut.
Garrett Hedlund
I always managed to get in trouble, like every kid. But I had to learn a lot of hard lessons on my own, without parents who would nurture me and guard me through that part of life, at a very young age.
Ted Dekker
I think some of my best theatre training has been in the Marine Corps. Not only meeting a bunch of characters, but growing up. You’re in really adult situations at a young age, as far as being in charge of people.
Adam Driver
What modeling taught me at a young age was how to say ‘no,’ which is something girls – we’re not always good at saying ‘no.’ We want to be nice, and then we forget to look out for ourselves.
Yara Shahidi
I didn’t have the greatest equipment or the greatest facilities. I would see people with new shoes and better cars. I knew what I wanted and what I had to do to get what I wanted. I became a very Spartan person at a young age because of that.
Tommy Morrison
Hillary Clinton has held vast dreams. She was inspired at a young age that society does well when women and children do.
Tim Kaine
I grew up in Sierra Leone, in a small village where as a boy my imagination was sparked by the oral tradition of storytelling. At a very young age I learned the importance of telling stories – I saw that stories are the most potent way of seeing anything we encounter in our lives, and how we can deal with living.
Ishmael Beah
My father, I think he played percussion in high school. My mother played piano when she was very young, but only for a brief while. I don’t think she had a great teacher. In any case, neither of them were really into music at a young age.
Aaron Diehl
Both my parents were actors and they struggled, so I was raised with that. Being raised in this industry from a young age definitely forces you to grow up a little faster than maybe the normal kid.
Camila Morrone
Banging on the piano while my grandmother was watching me. I’d run up to her and ask: ‘How was that, Grandma?’ And she’d say, ‘That was beautiful, baby!’ And I’d run back to the piano and play some more. I’m sure that’s why I still play today, because I was encouraged from such a young age, 2 or 3.
Craig Robinson
I’m not someone who from a young age imagined myself being a writer or had dreams of being a novelist or anything like that, but I was always very driven by ideas and by values, and that is the reason I got into journalism.
Bari Weiss
I’m a very ambitious person. I’ve been like this from a very young age. As early as 12 years old, I used to have panic attacks because I needed to know my life plan.
Sam Smith
People define themselves aesthetically at a very young age.
Thom Filicia
I started writing poetry when I was 12 years old and also undertook vocal training since a young age. However, it was only during my time at the University of Oxford did the musician in me came alive.
Ananya Birla
Anyone who comes out of Brazil at a young age and comes over to Europe has got to have a big heart and a big personality.
Bruce Grobbelaar
When I was younger I could remember anything, whether it happened or not.
Mark Twain
I was 18 when I was presented with the Arjuna Award. To say it feels really good would be an understatement. But I don’t know how else to convey the feeling. I am grateful for having received this prestigious award at such a young age.
P. V. Sindhu
I worked from a very young age as an assistant director.
Sooraj Pancholi
It’s made me cynical at a young age to see how overlooked certain groups I’ve admired are.
Bradford Cox
It takes a long time to become young.
Pablo Picasso
I think you’re lucky if you discover what you really love at a young age. College wasn’t something I was going to do. I wanted to keep acting, and I didn’t want to go to New York or California and pound the pavement.
Gary Sinise
I was very lucky to be a part of going to so many different countries and cities and seeing so many different cultures and people, living that lifestyle at such a young age.
Luke Hemmings
I came to America at such a young age, and I was so naive that I didn’t realise what I was getting myself into; maybe that’s why it worked out for me.
Claire Holt
I feel like it’s important, especially at young age, to find exactly what it is that makes your style so important as opposed to just trying to fit into the iconic styles of performers out there.
Jennifer Damiano
The single best time to invest is at a young age because the dollar in the market today will likely be worth 10 to 50 times that much, after inflation, by the time you reach age 65.
Stephen Moore
I grew up as an only child, and my mother was a single mom. It’s always been “us.” If it weren’t for her nurturing and guiding my artistic talents at a young age, I don’t think I’d be a professional actress and performer today.
Edwina Findley
From a young age I was really into pop music because I had these two older sisters who were into it, and I wanted to be like them. They liked Wham! and so I was really into them too.
Konnie Huq
I played Lord Ram. It was a difficult character because I was just 21 years old and I played Ram at such a young age.
Gurmeet Choudhary
I’ve experienced first-hand how the system is in Germany. I’ve seen how well-developed and professional they are, even at a young age. I learned and grew so much as an individual there.
Christian Pulisic
The first time I’m nominated for an Emmy and I get to share it with my dad who introduced me to theater at a very, very young age, it’s a very full-circle type thing.
Jasmine Cephas Jones
I was a product of a divorced family and I used humor as a weapon to combat sadness. I used comedy to make my mother laugh in light of the darkness that she faced, and to me it became a very powerful tool at a very young age, at six. I saw how therapeutic it could be.
Josh Gad
Sacrifice counts for a lot in sport. From a young age, I couldn’t do the normal things that the boys of my age get to do. Maybe you have a nice car or a nice house, but at times you just want to be a normal guy and you can’t.
Mario Balotelli
At a young age I thought, ‘Wow, that fiddle thing, that’s pretty cool. That mandolin is great. These drums, I like these drums ‘ They were Indian drums. And I was saying, ‘But that guitar. That guitar. Girls are going to like that guitar.’
Robbie Robertson
When we were studying at the Royal Antwerp Academy, we were taught to seek inspiration from everyone, everything and everywhere. My parents and grandparents were also a great inspiration for me at a very young age.
Dries van Noten
I think if we were going to worry about teen pregnancy being glamorized, we should worry about shows like ‘Teen Mom’. If people are going to want to have children at a young age because they see it on TV, I think that depends on the type of person you’re dealing with.
Chelsea Kane
I was someone who no one would want to be. But when I got to go to the boxing gym, even at a young age, I was somebody who everybody wanted to be.
Caleb Plant
Bond is actually my dream role. Only because it was the film I watched with my grandfathers and father from a very young age, and it would be the only way that I could actually repay them with my art form for what they’ve done for me.
Aneurin Barnard
I’m so thankful that I got to travel from a relatively young age.
Abigail Spencer
From a young age, I had done a lot of theater and musical theater. I wasn’t really sure what I wanted to do with my life, but every time I was away from acting, I just felt very incomplete and a little stir crazy.
Alexander Koch
My mom is very religious – Catholic – and from a young age they brought me to the church.
Bad Bunny
I’ve always felt like there was less creative space on sets with guardians. I just felt independent at a young age.
Timothee Chalamet
I think I’m one of those guys who was sort of always in comedy. I thought of myself – and other people seemed to think of me – as funny from a very young age. I was a very young comedy nerd and I even did sketch comedy in high school and college. I wrote and shot sketches on video and acted in them.
Andy Daly
I am someone who, from a very young age, was a huge fan of DC Comics.
Jason Fuchs
I knew at that young age that going to the Bureau of Indian Affairs was useless, absolutely useless. I grew up having no faith in the bureaucracy of government.
Russell Means
Working on “Pieces of April” with Peter Hedges at a young age was really very powerful. It was a different kind of work. We shot that in 10 days and Peter was right there with us, right next to the camera. It was very grounded and I really liked working that way. I liked the way he directed us.
Katie Holmes
My mom instilled in me at a young age how important it is to be properly dressed when you leave the house, no matter the time of day. Even if it’s 4:30 A.M. and you’re heading to the airport, you want to look and feel your best.
Olivia Palermo
From a very young age, I felt a spiritual, visceral, instinctual connection with ‘black is beautiful.’ Just the black experience and wanting to celebrate that. And I didn’t know how to articulate that as a young child.
Rachel Dolezal
I went to the U.S. to start my modeling career at a very young age. So, venturing into films and handling the pressure isn’t a big task.
Amy Jackson
You start at a young age, going on auditions, and you think you did a good job and expect to get that role, and you don’t, and it’s a letdown, a disappointment. So you tell yourself to just do the work and disconnect, because you have no control over the outcome.
Michael B. Jordan
From a fairly young age, Donald had a really hard time reading social cues. You know, the rules in the house, my grandparents’ house were very different from the rules in school. So, he had a difficult time adjusting to that.
Mary L. Trump
My father had nine kids, seven boys and two girls, and my uncle had 21 kids, 11 boys and 10 girls. They had the opportunity to teach the art of Gracie Jiu Jitsu and that’s how we got involved from a young age. It’s in the blood.
Royce Gracie
I have been fighting from a very young age. There is no fear there. It helped me cultivate the mindset of a fighter.
Ritika Singh
My parents aren’t artists or anything, but growing up in Wales, especially in a Welsh language school and community, they have this thing called the Eisteddfod where people compete in singing and acting and dancing and oratory all sorts of things. From a very young age, it’s been a part of my upbringing.
Iwan Rheon
My dad did show me interesting movies at a young age. I remember he showed me ‘A Clockwork Orange,’ and my mom said, ‘I never want to see this movie in my house again.’
Jonathan Krisel
From a very young age, as a teenager, I was into hip-hop and skateboarding and all those things that were akin to a kid in the ’90s. All those things are what resulted in clothes.
Virgil Abloh
From a very young age, stories fuelled my imagination in the most wonderful way.
Hayley Atwell
Especially now, with ‘Glee,’ it’s allowed a lot of kids to love music and performing at a young age. All ages watched ‘American Idol,’ but I think it was nice to be able to show kids, ‘Hey, you can be here, too.’
David Archuleta
I can remember just learning to walk and trying to dance like Elvis and sing like Elvis, so I was very, very passionate about music at a very young age.
Drake Bell
At a pretty young age, I wanted to do something with my life that would help people. I’ve been that way for quite a while.
Mazie Hirono
I’m super grateful that there wasn’t social media when I was a kid, but that sort of self-doubt crept in at a young age. It’s bullying. It’s the comments here and there, and maybe somebody says something to you that they don’t even mean to be a mean-spirited comment, but they’ll just kind of say it to you in passing.
Amy Schumer
Losing my mom at such a young age had a profound effect on my life.
Molly Shannon
Publishing at a young age is not really an indicator of talent.
Laura van den Berg
My goal for children’s books is to have them become tableside or bedside classics. To me, it would be awesome to write a book that every kid would end up reading at some point in their life because influencing kids in a positive way at such a young age is really cool.
Coy Bowles
My mother was a P.E. teacher, and she was kind of a fanatic about fitness and nutrition growing up, so it was ingrained in me at a young age. As I get older, I’m finding out it’s not about getting all buffed up and looking good. It’s more about staying healthy and flexible.
Josh Duhamel
Acting is my passion since childhood, and I am happy to be in Tinsel Town at a very young age.
For me, there were a few things in the Spider-Man comics that I thought were really interesting. There’s this story about Peter’s parents and where he came from, and I thought that it was really interesting to explore the emotional consequence of someone whose parents had left them, at a very young age.
Marc Webb
I was taught from a young age that as a teacher, especially a male, you are to never be alone with a female, or even a male student.
Raheem Jarbo
We have two issues – not enough young girls starting in karting at a young age and no clear role model. Sometimes you just have to see it to believe it.
Susie Wolff
I think that dancing has helped or prepared me, in a number of different ways, for the film industry, especially with controlling your nerves when you walk into an audition because you’re on stage from a young age.
Mia Wasikowska
I’ve had a great family, great parents, sister and with my wife, I was lucky to meet her at a young age. She stuck with me through the long distance, so that was great.
Nikola Vucevic
At a young age, I realized that getting letters is exciting.
Jesse Itzler
I got to do a lot of good things at a young age. I really kind of knocked out my bucket list when I was really young.
T. J. Perkins
I was forced to grow up quicker than most. I was forced to be a young man at a young age.
Ray Rice
It is so important for people at a young age to be invited to embrace classical music and opera.
Luciano Pavarotti
The perils of success at a young age is being afraid to make a mistake.
David Harbour
At a young age, acting was so inspiring and exciting, because to me it was play – make-believe, pretend.
James Van Der Beek
I knew at a very young age that I didn’t really buy the whole God gamut.
S.E. Cupp
I absolutely don’t relate to being beaten down my whole life – I had amazing opportunities at a young age – but there is still in many, many people’s minds the notion that I’ll never be able to escape Harry Potter.
Daniel Radcliffe
Going on loan certainly helped me, speaking to players who’ve been in the game longer than me at that young age, especially at Derby.
Mason Mount
I figured it out at a young age: I could meet as many young people online and try to form my own family or my own record label group.
Kevin Abstract
It’s very flattering, I guess, to be considered so popular at a young age. It’s kinda cool.
Mischa Barton
I have always championed the concept of administrators of color. My mother worked in advertising, and growing up, I saw my mother’s community of women working behind the scenes. I had the opportunity from a young age to know that I could do this work.
Lisa Lucas
I became very successful at a young age… I had lots of opportunities and lots of power and had no idea how to focus it.
Claire Danes
A prodigy to me is someone that is enormously gifted at a young age – to the point that people can’t deny it. I think when you are a young kid and you are a prodigy, other parents, when their child is on your team, they aren’t even mad that their kid isn’t getting the shine because that other kid is special.
Jamal Crawford
I was very successful from a very young age… there was never a bad period.
Judit Polgar
I read all the time that people think I’m arrogant. They say I am cocky, a bad character. I had that from a young age. But when they meet me, they say, ‘That image doesn’t fit you.’
Zlatan Ibrahimovic
I would say from a young age, basketball had been something I’ve loved.
Caris LeVert
My parents from a very young age raised my sister and I under a pressure to achieve. They’re both attorneys. So good marks, getting through university, there was a huge emphasis and pressure to do well and keep going.
David Schwimmer
I try to make a dent in people when I can. I figure people drift toward liberalism at a young age, and I always hope that they change when they see how the world really is.
Johnny Ramone
In science, every question answered leads to 10 more. I love that science can never, ever be finished. From a young age, people think, ‘Science is hard and boring.’ We don’t tell children, ‘Yes, you have to learn these formulae and theorems, but then you go on to learn about nuclear reactions and stars.’
Elise Andrew
I knew from a young age what I wanted to do, but that’s not the case for everyone. Some go through different paths to reach their destination.
Nikita Parris
From a very young age, I liked to take apart things. All of my Christmas gifts would wind up in a million pieces. I actually recall taking apart my dad’s lawnmower three times to understand how combustible engines work.
Homaro Cantu
I think I work hard. I think I dedicate myself to the game and sacrifice a lot of things at a young age, and I know if I continue to do good, what I can get out of it.
Derrick Rose
I considered wrestling at a young age, but I never could relate to any of the Divas. I have always been a bigger girl, and I did not think that WWE would want a girl my size, so I never expressed my dream to wrestle.
Nia Jax
For me from a pretty young age up until about 21 years old hallucinogenics had a huge place in my life.
Jon Fishman
I love fashion, but I don’t come from a background of loving clothes, and I remember feeling badly dressed from a young age.
Jenny Eclair
Of course you don’t want anybody to feel shame for their sexuality. But you also want to make it clear that a loud, a loud and proud approach to your sexuality at a young age isn’t necessary to be a fully integrated person.
Lena Dunham
I’d had to cope with a lot of death and illness in my family from a young age, and that maybe gave me a bleak outlook on the world.
Bernard Sumner
We need to have mental health support and early interventions integrated into our education system from a young age.
Sanam Saeed
In fact, I lost my dad at a young age and had to put myself through school. I didn’t have a lot of the advantages Donald Trump had but I had the most important ones you can get, which are loving parents who cared about me and helped me develop a sense of self. But it certainly wasn’t Donald Trump’s doing.
Megyn Kelly
When I started listening to Paramore, I was in high school, and they were, like, 15. Seeing somebody at such a young age have that ambition, I thought, holy crap, they were so young. They seemed like cool people, and I really liked the music.
From a very young age people have been touting me as a world champion. So it can be tough, playing in the spotlight and people expecting big things from you all the time.
Judd Trump
Living life at a young age is like being a sponge thrust into the ocean. You absorb what’s around you. If you’re around people who are supportive and positive, that’s how you look at the world.
Freddie Prinze, Jr.
We get to go out into the schools and work with the kids on connecting them to their food at a young age, to actually see where their food is coming from, to see that their food is coming from the earth and not just from a supermarket. Once they make that connection, they can start to build upon that.
Jack Johnson
Technology is a nerdy field. That’s why I called myself a ‘geek.’ It requires a lot of training and encouragement at a very young age.
Weili Dai
I knew from a very young age that I wanted to be in that world. But I also understood that being a touring musician meant that you’d be gone a lot and that was going to make other things a lot harder, like having a family.
Domino Kirke
I set out in the beginning to be the heavyweight champion of the world. From a very young age, I was going to be the heavyweight champion of the world. Nothing else was a problem to me. That’s what I’ll finish doing.
Tyson Fury
I was a hard fit at a young age. I didn’t make sense as an ingenue or a leading love-interest lady.
Allison Janney
Exposure from a young age to the realities of the world is a super-big thing.
Bill Gates
My dad was my first coach and drove me extremely hard from a very young age.
Candace Parker
I had this complex of being the perfect wife. This comes from the subliminal messages girls learn from a young age, so even independent, spirited women like me entertain such notions.
Reham Khan
From a really young age, I was into female empowerment and supporting the underdog. Right now, I’m into female vengeance.
Rose McGowan
I always loved the work. As soon as I finished a movie, the most exciting thing to do was to try to jump into the next one. How I feel about it is that I learned a lot, so I’m grateful that I learned so much, at such a young age, rather than in my more adult professional career.
Joe Swanberg
At a young age, I was going around the islands singing ‘spread love, it’s the Brooklyn way’ and not really understanding what the hell that phrase meant.
Patty Mills
From a young age, I was rubbing elbows with a very different kind of person and social class, and I felt a lot of tension and conflict in my identity because of that.
David Lindsay-Abaire
I’ve been ingrained since a young age to compete always and strive to be the best, and I think I’m working toward that.
Zach Ertz
I love my mom. I think my mom is responsible for me loving music and being in music because she subjected it to me at such a young age.
Maria Brink
By the time I graduated, I’d lost both parents and 23 was a young age to deal with a double loss like that. I felt rootless.
Dave Myers
It’s hard to say things without coming off in a certain way, but at a young age, I felt very driven. All I ever wanted to be is a soldier of cinema.
Harmony Korine
At a young age, to think the exciting days are over, it’s not easy.
Jim Kerr
Even though I played national level badminton, I told my parents when I was in 10th that I was not interested in continuing. Being a model or actor fascinated me from a young age, and I even did a couple of ads when I was just eight years old.
Deepika Padukone
Hollywood is a very volatile place where artists come in, and they essentially say they want to belong. It’s incredibly vulnerable to be an actor and also get criticism at a young age when you’re formulating who you are. We’ve seen a lot of people fall victim to that, and it’s very unfortunate.
Leonardo DiCaprio
We put so much pressure on kids to excel in school at such a young age.
Caitlyn Jenner
From a young age, I was never into going out and partying.
Gabby Barrett
I never got into debt because my parents had drummed into me at a young age: if you can’t afford it, you can’t have it.
Kate Thornton
In my entire life I have never seen a player of such quality and personality at such a young age, particularly wearing the ‘heavy’ shirt of one of the world’s great clubs.
Fabio Capello
I started dancing ballet when I was very young, so my background really is dance. But I remember loving the feeling of being on a stage and having a love for performing from a young age.
Caroline Sunshine
As a Canadian it’s something you grow up with. Where I’m from in Canada the ground usually freezes in late October and the lake is frozen until late March. We learn to skate at a young age and I learned to skate when I was three. I was on an outdoor rink when I was three-years-old.
Gerad Adams
I really have a heart for children who suffer from cancer. I can’t imagine having to go through that at such a young age.
Michael Chandler
For me, chess is a language, and if it’s not my native tongue, it is one I learned via the immersion method at a young age.
Garry Kasparov
I’ve battled psoriasis; I’ve had an autoimmune disease since I was two. So I’m very vigilant about taking care of myself and eating right and what I put in my body. It’s something that I had to be aware of since a young age. So health is a big deal.
LeAnn Rimes
If you look at any Mumbai guy, he starts to handle pressure at a very young age. Starts at the school level, then the pressure from parents, from the coaches.
Prithvi Shaw
I always messed around with makeup. From a very early age, my mom would let me play with hers, and my grandma, and my aunts and stuff were always like, ‘Let me put lipstick on her!’ that they’d have in their purse. But I think just from a very young age I’ve had fun with makeup.
Zoe Kravitz
My father taught me to paint when I was young with watercolors and so I learned at a very young age the essential elements of the value of light and composition.
Matthew Modine
I think that everybody in life probably goes through obstacles at different times in life. I wouldn’t really call them obstacles, I think that’s just called growing up, and I think it’s hard to be in the industry at such a young age
Kirsten Dunst
From a very young age I’d learned to put on a brave face because of losing my mum. I’d always make jokes if anybody tried to throw sympathy at me.
Kathy Burke
I wish I’d lived in New York in my early twenties. Or learned to speak more languages at a young age. I didn’t do either.
Carrie Brownstein
People need to realise that their governments are sitting on finite resources that will run out one day. Subsidising power and water is not an ideal solution and does not help reduce consumption. We need to educate people, from a young age, about the importance of conserving energy in their daily lives.
Joe Kaeser
Children live in a way that is very generous. They learn from a young age what you value; they watch your every move. If you value writing, they will learn quickly to value it too, as something they can give to someone, or receive with pleasure from someone else.
Pam Allyn
There are mothers that feel they made a mistake by having a kid at a very young age and they didn’t get to live their life.
LeToya Luckett
How I learned to read was by reading the captions on TV, and I grew up from a really young age watching tons of movies and television. Also, at the same time, I was a pretty hyperactive kid, kind of ADD.
Cameron Monaghan
Developing survival skills in life is incredibly important and I was very lucky that I developed them at a very young age.
Andrew Adonis, Baron Adonis
Jeff and Mike had taken drum lessons at a young age. When the Beatles came out in ’64, we all wanted to play guitar.
Steve Porcaro
I felt connected with Madonna from a very young age. I think I share a lot of qualities from her personality. I really respect her.
Marina and the Diamonds
It definitely toughens you up. It makes you mature from a young age, living away from home.
James Maddison
I have a real no-nonsense dad who taught me how to be resilient at a very young age.
Nicole Ari Parker
The Startup Act should give all Americans, not just immigrants, a better shot at being tomorrow’s engineers and entrepreneurs. And that opportunity could begin at a young age with education in computer programming.
Marvin Ammori
You look more like a legend when you accomplish a lot at a young age.
Lil Yachty
I like to speak with more experienced people – with the staff, the manager – and get a lot of advice. But from a young age, I always remember that talent is good, but hard work beats talent.
Divock Origi
I’d say James Dean is someone that’s really inspired me. Just the fact that he did only three movies before he died at such a young age, and yet everyone knows who he is. It really blows my mind.
Tye Sheridan
As a young footballer, it’s not easy to come from Canada and then try to play in one of the best teams in the world. It takes time, especially at a young age. It takes a lot of patience to be able to play.
Alphonso Davies
When I first started lifting I wanted to be a Super Hero.. But that was my motivation. I was huge into comics at a very young age and nothing made me feel better than helping people. So I wanted to build muscle to be like Superman, Captain America, Wolverine, etc.
Scott Herman
Obviously, making my debut at such a young age, people put a lot of pressure on you.
Christian Pulisic
I was born in Edinburgh, in Scotland, a few days after the end of the Second World War. Both my parents had left school at a very young age, unwillingly in my father’s case. Yet both had deep effects on my education, my father influencing me toward measurement and mathematics, and my mother toward writing and history.
Angus Deaton
I’ve lived a fast-paced life, but I had the best childhood. I didn’t miss out on anything by having my daughter at a young age.
Keisha Castle-Hughes
Since young age, I am in politics.
Amit Shah
I never really had a job, because I’ve been cycling from such a young age: there was never really a time to have a job. My mum went into Starbucks once and asked if they had a job for me, and they offered me one – but I never took it up because I couldn’t fit the job in with school and cycling.
Laura Trott
I learned to play chess at a young age, and I think that’s where learning to plan things out and put things in position, that was the best thing for me.
Jaylen Brown
I’ve loved poetry since a very young age and my parents, especially my dad, he really introduced us to art when we were quite young.
Dominique Crenn
To be honest, when you grow up in the music business, people heard me sing from a young age, and you get offered development deals and things like that.
Aubrie Sellers
When I started acting, doing theater stuff at a young age, I was always the comic relief-type roles, so I knew I had a funny bone and could make groups of people laugh, but I didn’t really take it seriously until I started getting paid on a weekly basis; then I was like, ‘Oh, well, this could be a lifestyle.’
Kenan Thompson
Losing both parents at a young age gave me a sense that you can’t really control life – so you’d better live it while it’s here. I stopped believing in a storybook existence a long time ago. All you can do is push in a direction and see what comes of it.
Jon Hamm
Northeastern folk music influenced me from a very young age. Sachin Dev Burman is one of the inspirational musicians in Indian film music. The way he fused folk music with his signature style is amazing. So, I am aware of the beauty of northeast folk music.
Adnan Sami
I knew from a very young age that there was something very wrong with me.
Patty Duke
What’s great about my father is that, because we’ve been involved in the business from such a young age, he’s given us – and we’ve earned – autonomy, and he’s given us the rope to go out and grow the brand.
Donald Trump, Jr.
You can’t help getting older, but you don’t have to get old.
George Burns
My little brother and I took piano lessons at a young age and played music together later on in life just to play around at home until we decided to make a record. Eventually we started having more and more songs.
Josephine de La Baume
I knew at quite a young age that I had an issue with drinking.
Martin Gore
I was trained as an actor and taught to believe at a very young age that I could be anything and do anything, and then you find yourself painted into a corner by your own image or persona.
Pierce Brosnan
I was kidnapped by literature at a young age and never wanted to be ransomed.
Margaret Atwood
I’ve always considered myself a fairly romantic person. I believe in love and falling in love at a young age.
Mandy Moore
I think because of the Internet I was able to study comedy from quite a young age and watch a lot of comedy.
Bo Burnham
Being healthy is something I learned from a very young age. Looking after yourself on the inside helps with your energy, makes your skin glow, and changes your whole outlook on life.
Phoebe Tonkin
I knew at a young age, whether I was playing baseball or hockey or lacrosse, that my teammates were counting on me, whether it be to strike the last batter out in a baseball game or score a big goal in a hockey game.
Wayne Gretzky
The very rough story is this: Melbourne boy, out of both my parents’ houses at a young age, lived with my grandmother, drama teacher twisted me into doing this TV thing that I thought my mates were doing, too.
Ben Mendelsohn
It’s easy to say standup for yourself. The problem is if you don’t feel like you’re physically capable of handling the repercussions of that, especially at a young age, it’s hard to do that.
Eve Torres
Nobody would take checks from Indians, nobody would give them any credit, and nobody would let them drink in the bars. There was a rudeness, a brusqueness, with which the Indians were treated constantly. At a very young age, that had entered my consciousness.
James Welch
I knew from a young age that I could sing and it was impressed upon me that if I got a classically trained education in voice, it would serve as a foundation for whatever I chose to do.
Shuler Hensley
Age isn’t how old you are but how old you feel.
Gabriel Garcia Marquez
A lot of people say I’ve missed out on a lot because I started acting at such a young age. What’s so obvious to me is that I actually was really lucky. I gained a lot and I got a head start in what I wanted to do in life. A lot of people in their late 20s, early 30s are just beginning to figure out where they want to go.
Matt Dillon
The titles that I have won at a young age are a further inspiration to work hard to continue to be successful.
Thomas Muller
My parents are both into music. My mom sings and my dad plays piano, so there was always music everywhere. I was singing at a very young age, but I actually got my buzz through rapping.
I think we need to teach pleasure. What beautiful touch means. What reciprocity means. What being connected and what intimacy means. Boys get out there at a young age and the performance posturing is so great and ends up being hard and aggressive.
Eve Ensler
Etta James is my all-time favorite singer. I’ve said it in every interview, in every story, in every on- and off-camera question. That music was always such a huge escape for me, even from a young age.
Christina Aguilera
There are people who are uncanny, who are finished products at a young age. I wasn’t, thank God.
Itzhak Perlman
My dad grew up in western Nebraska. I’d visit all the time as a kid, and it’s very much like the Wild West. It felt to me like a cowboy movie. Stuff like that made me become this dreamer at a young age.
Kevin Morby
I enjoyed mathematics from a very young age. At the beginning of college, I had this illusion, which was kind of silly in retrospect, that if I just understood math and physics and philosophy, I could figure out everything else from first principles.
Erez Lieberman Aiden
At a very young age, I was in Germany watching TV and I told my mom I wanted to be an actor. She said, ‘Go for it.’ When my dad retired from the military, we moved to Los Angeles, and it all kicked off.
The core of who I am and what I’m about, I’m a loyal person, I’m honourable, as I say I’m a softie I’ll do anything for anyone. But, there’s this other part of me that, I’ve been exposed to so much at a young age that’s now, right, I have to look after myself.
Troy Deeney
I had many dreams of winning things for Arsenal at a young age.
Alex Iwobi
I became married at a young age and had two daughters and divorced at 26. I had to go on welfare to make ends meet. I had no way to support myself.
Clarissa Pinkola Estes
I took the step over to Europe to play at a big club at a young age. I think that’s what’s hard for a lot of people, moving over there.
Christian Pulisic
Just as an individual’s ability to delay gratification at a young age is a powerful predictor of future academic and professional achievement, discipline is also central to the long-run economic health of nations.
Peter Blair Henry
I grew up in a community of theatre, and I always loved musicals. From a young age, the first present I ever wanted was a video camera. For me it was a great outlet to be creative.
Christopher Egan
Let’s teach our children from a very young age about the story of the universe and its incredible richness and beauty. It is already so much more glorious and awesome – and even comforting – than anything offered by any scripture or God concept I know.
Carolyn Porco
One thing I think I’m really proud of is that I started taking care of my skin at a young age.
Sutton Foster
I was depressed at a very young age – mental illness runs in my family, especially on the female side.
Petra Collins
I felt abandoned at a young age. That’s where most of my anger came from, I guess.
Claressa Shields
I think, for some children, your skills don’t lie in written words. A lot of school is based around written words and how good you are at spelling or reading. From a young age, if you’re told you can’t spell or read very well, you’re made to feel a bit stupid.
Erin Richards
Yeah, I was ready for the NBA. Because I went through a lot of things back overseas. And you know, playing professionally from a young age and then playing against the older guys – guys over 30; older, talented guys – was really tough, but it also helped my game grow and just get me ready for the NBA.
Cedi Osman
Honestly, from a very young age, before I had the language, really – anywhere that I encountered binary, whether it was in clothing or in toys or in media, it always made me uncomfortable.
Asia Kate Dillon
My dad taught me to play the guitar. We grew up with country music. We had every Willie Nelson record (laughs). I was saved at a young age and had a great desire to follow God. I was really focused on that through my whole life, even as a kid and through high school.
Chris Tomlin
People have always talked about me. People always made fun of me, my whole life. It’s always something that’s been there. I learned to deal with it at a young age. And as I grew up and it became more prevalent in my life, I was able to control it because I was prepared for each step.
Shawn Bradley
I learned to ski at a young age and love it – but I don’t get to do it as much as I’d like because of the risk of injuries.
Greg Rutherford
Old age is like everything else. To make a success of it, you’ve got to start young.
Theodore Roosevelt
I played didgeridoo from a young age – on the vacuum cleaner, initially.
Xavier Rudd
The world will teach our children if we do not, and children are capable of learning all the world will teach them at a very young age.
Rosemary M. Wixom
‘Driving while black’ was taught to me at a young age.
Colson Whitehead
I stumbled into soul music at a very young age. It had something that really spoke to me.
Erik Hassle
Cousins are people that are ready made friends, you have laughs with them and remember good times from a young age, you have fights with them but you always know you love each other, they are a better thing than brothers and sisters and friends cause there all pieced together as one.
Courteney Cox
Because winning a gold medal had been a dream of mine since a young age, I needed to empty my mind during the preparation for the Olympics by telling myself that it would be OK not to win a gold medal.
Kim Yuna
We put so much pressure on kids to excel in school at such a young age.
Bruce Jenner
I was born in Niagara Falls. The high school I went to had 500 kids and the school didn’t have a lot of money. The town itself was whatever. It was a good place to grow up. It was a blessing that I grew up there, because I got to find myself at a young age.
Murda Beatz
We never had books in the house. Not any book in our house. Not a Bible, not anything. So, I would go the library from a very young age and get the books out.
Dean Koontz
When we were studying at the Royal Antwerp Academy, we were taught to seek inspiration from everyone, everything and everywhere. My parents and grandparents were also a great inspiration for me a very young age.
Dries van Noten
I am from Trinidad and Tobago, so I actually grew up in Tobago on the beach, just running around, playing, watching really creative people, and being exposed to really deep, rich stories from a young age.
Winston Duke
I watched the German version of ‘Baron Munchasen’ and Fritz Lang’s ‘Metropolis’ at a young age. ‘Star Wars’ was also a huge thing when I was a kid.
Duncan Jones
When I was a kid, a lot of my parents’ friends were in the music business. In the late ’60s and early ’70s – all the way through the ’70s, actually – a lot of the bands that were around had kids at a very young age. So they were all working on that concept way early on. And I figured if they can do it, I could do it, too.
At a young age, I was introduced to Joni Mitchell by my mum. My dad was into progressive rock.
Mura Masa
Because I started at such a young age, I went in with a ‘take what comes, do what I’m told’ approach.
Lucy Boynton
I’ve made money from a young age but it’s never taken away from my love of skateboarding. I don’t just do this for money.
Nyjah Huston
I never wanted to do TV. I just did what I was trained to do through the Special Forces, and I’ve been doing that from a very young age.
Bear Grylls
People said when I was a young lad ‘Oh he’s got good feet.’ He’s good in small spaces and that’s something I have always had since a young age.
Adam Lallana
I used to watch people like Raven-Symone and, you know, the Olsens at a young age, and Will Smith and people like that, and just looking at them at a young age on TV. And just thinking to myself, ‘I can do that,’ and questioning why I wasn’t there.
Elijah Kelley
The first thing that I learned – and I understood it at a really young age – was that I could get a laugh. Really early. Because my mother and father are funny.
George Clooney
I actually got signed when I was 14 with Sony Sweden. Things didn’t really work out with that, but I’m glad I had the opportunity to be exposed to the industry at a young age.
Snoh Aalegra
Big Foster is a guy who was in line to be the head of this clan that’s been up in the mountains for 200 years, because his father was the leader or the Bren’in, his mother is now Bren’in, and they’re kind of royalty, so he was in line to be next. He’d been promised it from a young age, but it just hasn’t happened.
David Morse
I got to play first-team men’s football from a young age.
James Maddison
I started working out and doing martial arts when I was about 4 years old, and I was competing by the time I was five or six. So my mom and dad had me doing push-ups and sit-ups from a very young age.
Sage Northcutt
As tennis players, we’re ingrained from a young age to not show anything – tiredness, fear – or your opponent is going to know and you don’t want that to happen.
Mardy Fish
At a young age I always had an entrepreneurial spirit. So I’m trying to develop things on my own, too, and there are a couple things that have absolutely nothing to do with the entertainment business that I’m trying to tackle. We’ll just sort of see.
Jennifer Carpenter
Children should be kept as normal as possible. At a very young age, they are not even aware of the happenings around them. You need to do whatever you can to grow them normally.
Pankaj Kapur
At a young age, I had to give up a lot of things, like being able to hang out with my friends.
Victoria Justice
I had to believe in myself from quite a young age. And I had to grow up pretty early.
Eoin Morgan
I feel that confidence in women – especially young girls of color – but women, in general, is so important. It is so important for us to arm ourselves and become powerful at a very young age.
Viola Davis
Those who love deeply never grow old; they may die of old age, but they die young.
Arthur Wing Pinero
When I was growing up, I was very lucky. My family was the most important thing to me. They provided me with somewhere safe to grow and learn, and I know I was fortunate not to have been confronted by serious adversity at a young age.
Kate Middleton
I talked to a few schools about playing football, but I had already pretty much made my mind up. I fell in love with baseball at a young age, and I knew that that’s what I wanted to do.
Aaron Judge
Since a very young age, I’ve dreamt of being a professional soccer player, and from a psychological and mental aspect, I’ve tried to prepare myself to be a good player.
Radamel Falcao
I got started at a really young age. I was about two years old when I started playing the piano and around seven or eight when I started writing my own chords and putting words together.
Jackson Guthy
I wished to have the time to put together a world view, but there was never enough time, and also, those who had it seemed to have had it from a very young age; they didn’t begin at forty.
Sheila Heti
I read ‘The Washington Post’ every day from a very young age. Reading the newspaper taught me how to organize my thoughts on the page. Meaning, it taught me how to write.
George Pelecanos
I come from a family of tall, curvy women. I developed in my body and my shape far earlier, so from a young age I accepted it. I embraced it and saw it as an advantage.
Ricki-Lee Coulter
My father being a theatre person used to compose music for his plays. He noticed me singing one of his compositions at a young age and he was amazed. From then on, he taught me the little things that he knew about music.

Daniel Boulud told me at a young age, ‘Whatever happens to you in your career, you’re going to be great – be humble. Just be humble.’ And I think about that daily. Like, whatever happens to me, whatever awards we win as a team or whatever else, just be humble.
Johnny Iuzzini
I’m motivated and driven, and I have been from a young age.
Christie Hefner
Sometimes there are certain things that you gotta grow into. Sometimes, for some actors, they know it spiritually at a young age. Others need to grow into it.
Elias Koteas
At a young age, I became interested in space and science after watching the U.S. land on the moon for the first time.
Shannon Walker
I’m more American than anything else. I grew up in China, but I was fulfilled at a young age by American music. It was my biggest inspiration.
Peter Max
I knew at five years old what I wanted to do for a living. I started reading newspapers and books out loud at a very young age. I was very focused on English and building my vocabulary.
Mauro Ranallo
I was very driven to act from a very young age, and my parents were not only tolerant of that drive but also encouraging.
Claire Danes
I started going training with Southampton, and they were selecting the team for the under-9s. I did a six-week trial and got in. I was quite lucky to play at a good standard from a very young age.
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain
I was watching ‘The Godfather’ at a very young age.
Rich Paul
I ended up taking piano lessons at a really young age, I took, like, years of piano lessons, and I always loved to sing.
Marc Martel
I would say facing the obstacles surrounding the day-to-day pressures of an elite athlete at a very young age was not the easiest task. Learning to deal with the nerves and feeling the pressure of representing my country, all while wanting to achieve my own dreams, was a big obstacle to plow through.
Tara Lipinski
Here’s my theory: If a person gets worldwide fame at a young age, they’re emotionally frozen at that moment. For me, that’s 15 to 18, so you find yourself in your mid-20s being a glorified 15-year-old. What could possibly go wrong?
Rob Lowe
To see myself with the Champions League trophy at such a young age was an incredible and tremendous feeling.
Marco Asensio
From a very young age, militarism and trying to solve the world’s problems through militarism is something that has always resonated with me as being a bad idea.
Justin Sane
I’ve read stories from people who say they always knew they were attracted to the same sex, or that they figured it out at a young age. I’m not one of them. I had practically no idea until one night in my sophomore year of high school.
Steve Kornacki
I had family who exposed me to all sorts of different media involving actors – films, theatrical productions touring through Boston. My grandparents, particularly my mother’s parents, were huge fans of all the arts, and they took me to these shows and exhibits at a very young age, so I was just immersed in it.
Hari Nef
If you can see all my life, I’ve been training since a very young age. I’ve been competing in so many different competitions, so many different opponents, and so many different countries.
Valentina Shevchenko
We grew up in a very creative environment and were exposed to the arts at a very young age, so it’s not a surprise that all of us are in some form of the arts.
Spike Lee
I’ve always been involved with the performing arts from a young age.
Kids specializing at sports at such a young age could be part of the reason why you’re seeing so many injuries.
Pat Connaughton
Coming up in the Bay Area and being African American in a city that has a history of complex issues of violent crime, interaction with the police is always intense. That’s something you have to learn. My mom taught me at a young age that if ever a cop stops you, you put your hands up and freeze – don’t move.
Ryan Coogler
At a young age, I wanted to be a prima ballerina and had these grand ideas that I would go study at Juilliard. It’s something I laugh about now.
Andra Day
No doubt Modi ji is a great orator because he was a pracharak from a young age.
I always wrote from a very young age, literally from the time I learned how to read and write.
Curtis Sittenfeld
I’ve always been interested in exploring the concept of child prodigies. When I was younger, I wrote a story about Mozart as a child, and I just always loved this idea of young people who are able to take control of their lives and bring a whole lot of change at such a young age.
Marie Lu
I had examples from a very young age of gay actors or personalities coming out in late ’90s and early 2000s who faced a lot of backlash and didn’t have a lot of support and risked ruining their careers.
Jeffrey Bowyer-Chapman
I always knew I took care of more than myself from a young age. People depended on me.
DeAndre Hopkins
Bob Dylan is quite a songwriter, and a great singer and musician. I won’t bother with comparing myself to him, but I will say that I heard his records at a very young age and I still listen to all his records.
Frank Black
Were taught at such a young age that you can always be better and that youre never perfect and that youre never good enough.
Shawn Johnson
I’ve always tried from a very young age to be positive.
Gabby Barrett
I got into film acting because I wanted to be James Dean. We lost him at a very young age – he was only 24 – but I’m 51 going on 52, so there’s only so many times you can act like James Dean. I had to find new ways of expressing myself that kept me fascinated with film performance.
Nicolas Cage
The youngster in me is still alive and kicking. I was infected by music at a very young age, so it’s always kept me younger than springtime.
Charles Lloyd
My mother is an incredibly beautiful woman who has laughed at every single thing my father’s ever said. At a young age, my brother and I understood that if you can make girls laugh, you can punch well above your weight class.
Seth Meyers
The things that transpired in my life, they didn’t happen in the order that they’re supposed to, or are ideal. Everything just kind of fell in my lap at a young age. Things were thrown at me very fast.
Tony Finau
I definitely think I’m kind of more of an East Coast player than a West Coast player. But I knew at a young age, too, that if I didn’t get a scholarship that I was going to go to prep school.
Jared Dudley
Technology is a nerdy field. Thats why I called myself a geek. It requires a lot of training and encouragement at a very young age.
Weili Dai
I wanted to be an actor from a young age, but actually becoming one and seen the ugly side of the world does feel different and sometimes unwelcome. There are shallow, vapid, untalented people zombieing the streets of Hollywood, adding decadence and immorality to an already extravagant business.
Fran Kranz
I had a very happy childhood. But I was sent off to boarding school at quite a young age, this massive Victorian house that was suffocated in ivy. I think there is a part of that school in ‘Heap House.’
Edward Carey
My parents were early adopters, and I’ve been online since a rather young age. You should regard anything from 2001 or earlier as having been written by a different person who also happens to be named ‘Eliezer Yudkowsky.’ I do not share his opinions.
Eliezer Yudkowsky
I grew up off the grid in Vernon, and I saw my parents work hard every day, as teachers but also while farming and building a log home. So from a young age I knew the value of hard work.
