“A 16 year old can’t move out of home.”

“People without exceptional vocabulary and grammar skills can’t be writers.”

“You can’t manage a business, you’re only 19.”

“People, who live there, don’t get scholarships.”

“Women don’t get hired for their intelligence; they get hired for their looks.”

“It would be better, if you don’t ask so many questions.”

“You shouldn’t spend so much time dreaming.”

“You shouldn’t do it until you have more money.”
