Ask and you shall receive.

Senior quotes are an opportunity to summarize four years spent surviving high school.

There's a lot of different ways to go with a senior quote. You can drop some obscure reference that only you and your friends will get, make a statement about something you care about, or reveal a secret about yourself. You control the message. 

You can also hand off that final say to someone else—just don't be surprised at what you get in return.

Twitter user Shannon asked actress and singer Brie Larson to help her out with picking a senior quote. She tweeted at the star, "if you tweet me. Whatever you say will be my senior quote."

Brie Larson, as it turns out, isn't going to put all that much thought into what a random high schooler's sendoff should be. Instead of cribbing a famous quote or offering words of wisdom about the world, Larson gave the kid about as much effort as you'd expect.

And just like that, Shannon had what she needed.
The only real shame in all of this is that Larson missed an opportunity to throw a twist on the classic joke from The Office where Michael Scott lays claim to a Wayne Gretzky quote.

"'You miss 100 percent of the shots you don't take' - Wayne Gretzky - Michael Scott - Brie Larson" would have been a solid use of ink for the yearbook printers. Maybe next year.

Senior makes stunning confession in his yearbook quote
First there was the Muslim girl who used her yearbook quote to silence trolls commenting on her headscarf. Then we met the badass teen who took aim at her school's sexist dress codes. Now, yet another teen has used his yearbook quote to take a stand for social justice: 18-year-old Maxwell Barrett, an aspiring artist who decided to use his yearbook quote as an opportunity to come out to his parents.
