I quit high school the first day of 10th grade because I felt like I was wasting time.
There was nothing I could - and wanted to - learn in school. It was just a complete waste of my time.
School was a waste of time for me. I was bored and left at 16. I started taking correspondence courses at college instead. I did incredibly well. I won an award for my grades.
After high school, I enrolled at the University of Nebraska at Lincoln, but I stayed only a year and a half. I felt college was a waste of time; I wanted to start working.
You can meet a young person who goes to school and is really enthusiastic, but if a sufficiently strong personality convinces them that this is a waste of time, that person might flunk out.
Strangely enough, through all those school years I decided at 13 or 14 I was going to be a musician and so school was just something to get out of the way, a waste of time and not to bother with it.
What is school for? If you're not asking that, you're wasting time and money.
Education is what remains after one has forgotten what one has learned in school.
Time and tide wait for no man.
Wasting money puts you in a real party mood.
