QUOTE: Everyone is human

When you start to make myths out of people – even though they may have produced extraordinary results – you run the risk of becoming disconnected from them. You can start to feel like you could never achieve similar things that they did because they are so very different. So it’s important to keep in mind that everyone is just a human being no matter who they are.

QUOTE: Why teens don't use Twitter or blog

Let’s face it: teenagers haven’t had the time to build up expertise, life experiences, or a career that would merit content creation. Without that expertise, less people are inclined to listen to what they have to say, and without that knowledge, teenagers have less to talk about.
Ben Parr, Mashable writer on the Pew survey finding that only 14% of teens blog and 8% use Twitter.
