Sometimes pain becomes such a huge part of your life that you expect it to always be there. Because you can't remember a time in your life when it wasn't, but then one day you feel something else. something that feels wrong, only because its so unfamiliar. then in that moment you realize you're happy.- One Tree Hill
Even though I kinda knew we were a lie, it was like a pain reliever. I mean the pain was still there, but I didn't feel it for awhile.- One Tree Hill
Peyton: I thought they were just rumors?
Anna: Well you know how high school is. Once the story gets out, it might as well be true.
You know that feeling you get on Sunday where you just had the whole day to yourself, and it's been great, and then you remember that you have to go to school the next day, and it just ruins the rest of the night? I have to go home tomorrow and I've got that feeling, just like it's Sunday night.- One Tree Hill
I'm tired of feeling bad. I'd rather feel nothing. It's better, it's easier- One Tree Hill
Have you ever woke up from a really good dream & just tried to go back to sleep? Or had the flu and you promise yourself that you'll appreciate normal so much more if you could just get back to it? That's the way I feel; I just want things to go back to the way they were.- One Tree Hill
People are gonna dissapoint you. I get that... I kind of expect that. But I dont know, what if you wake up one day and realize that you're the dissapointment?- One Tree Hill
I am not pushing you away... I am holding on for dear life, but I need you to need me back.- One Tree Hill
What a frightening thing is the human, a mass of gages and dials and registers, and we can only read a few, and those perhaps not accurately.- One Tree Hill
Tragedies happen. What are you gonna do, give up? Quit? No. I realize now that when your heart breaks, you got to fight like hell to make sure you're still alive. Because you are. And that pain you feel? That's life. The confusion and fear? That's there to remind you that somewhere out there is something better, & that something is worth fighting for.- One Tree Hill
If having things turn out the way you want them to is a measure of a successful life then some would say I was a failure. The important thing is not to be bitter over life's disappointments. Learn to let go of the past. And recognize that everyday won't be silence and when you find yourself lost in the darkness and despair, remember it's only in the black of night that you can see the stars and those stars lead you back home. So don't be afraid to make mistakes, stumble, fall, cause most of the time the greatest rewards come from the things that scare you the most. Maybe you'll get everything you wish for, maybe you'll get more than you could ever imagine. Who knows where life will take you. The road is long and in the end the journey is the destination.- One Tree Hill
It wasn't supposed to be this way. The artists, and the scientists, and the poets...none of them fit in at seventeen. You're supposed to get past it. Adults, they see kids killing kids and they know its a tragedy because they used to be those kids. The bullies and the beaten and the loners. You're supposed to get past it. You're supposed to live long enough to take it back.- One Tree Hill
You know when I was a freshman, I wasn't a very good person. I mean, sure, I was popular and dating seniors, but as a person, I was pretty lost. And over the last four years, I've been forced to grow up. I stopped letting boys define me, and I started believing in myself, and in my potential ,and I ran for student council president, and I designed a clothing line, and somewhere along the way, the lost little party girl became the girl on the wall of honor. And I know what I did was wrong, I know, but the girl I was when I came to this school, I'm not sure she would've. And isn't that the point of high school? I mean, isn't that what you guys have been trying to teach us for the past four years?- One Tree Hill
Just let me hold you for a couple more minutes. That's what's gonna fix me.- One Tree Hill
You can choose to blame your circumstances on fate, or bad luck, or bad choices. Or you can fight back. Things aren't always gonna be fair in the real world, that's just the way it is. But for the most part, you get what you give. Let me ask you all a question, what's worse- not getting everything you wished for, or getting it but finding it's not enough? The rest of your life is being shaped right now, with the dreams you chase, the choices you make, and the person you decide to be. The rest of your life is a long time, and the rest of your life starts right now.- One Tree Hill
She's the first thing I think about every day. How is she? Does she miss me like I miss her? How do I get her back? And then another day without her begins.- One Tree Hill
Well, your eyes are puffy. which, from experience, screams
textbook crying eyes. You have your hair up, you're probably
not planning on impressing any boys today. I'd say you're
nursing a hell of a broken heart. and not the school girl crush kind.
You're dealing with the real thing.
The rest of your life is a long time, and whether you know it or not, it's being shaped right now.- One Tree Hill
One of these days you're gonna wake up and you'll feel that same ache in your heart and you'll realize how much I love you. Whenever that day is, I'll still be waiting for you, and you'll come home to me.- One Tree Hill
Sometimes it feels like it was yesterday, graduating high school, saying goodbye; that feeling that you get at 17 or 18- that nobody in the history of the world has ever been this close, has ever loved as fiercely or laughed as hard, or cared as much. Sometimes it feels like it was yesterday - and sometimes it feels like someone else's memory.- One Tree Hill
You can find the good in anybody if you just give them a chance, benefit of the doubt. Sometimes people disappoint you, sometimes they surprise you, but you never really get to know them until you listen for what's in their heart.- One Tree Hill
Just trust me, over time, not knowing is way worse than a "no".- One Tree Hill
Of course I miss you. It's all I do.- One Tree Hill
It's been said that the saddest thing a man will ever face is what might have been. But what of the man who's faced with what was? Or what may never be? Or what can no longer be? Choosing the right path is never easy. It's a decision we make with only our hearts to guide us. But sometimes, we find our way to something better. Sometimes we fight through the regret and remorse of our mistakes, our malice and our jealousy, and the shame we feel for not being the people we were meant to be. And that's when we find our way to something better. Or when something better finds its way to us.- One Tree Hill
I don't hate you. I remember the first time I ever saw you, all skinny arms and tangled mess of hair. It was hard letting you go Peyton. You know? It was hard losing you and it was hard seeing you again and it's still really hard- One Tree Hill
