Ah, thank you everyone!
The quote which I found does seem to be written in a way which excites westerners' emotions more than the original quote which serve more to subdue emotions and lead to self-control (what the quote is talking about).
I was looking for a powerful, exciting, authentic Shakyamuni Buddha quote that could excite and and interest teenagers.
The version I found could do that, but it's not authentic, so I think that would be dishonest on my part.
However, the translation Santa posted sounds pretty interesting, too:
Teenagers will just switch off if they hear words like "self-control" and "self-subdued." lol
Heaven, hell, battles, passions: these things hold their attention better.
