They hit you out of nowhere. When bad things come, they come suddenly, without warning. We rarely get to see the catastrophe coming, no matter how well we try to prepare for it. We do our very best, but sometimes it's just not good enough. We buckle our seatbelts, we wear a helmet, we stick to the lighted paths, we try to be safe. We try so hard to protect ourselves, but it doesn't make a damn bit of difference. Cause when the bad things come, they come out of nowhere. The bad things come suddenly, with no warning. But we forget that sometimes that's how the good things come too.- Grey's Anatomy

The bad guys lie to get in your bed and the good guys lie to get in your heart.- One Tree Hill
Most of our life is a series of images, they pass us by like towns on the highway. But sometimes a moment stuns us as it happens, and we know that this instant is more than a fleeting image. We know that this moment, every part of it, will live on forever.- One Tree Hill
I forgot you're the guy who loves to rip the rug out from under me just when I feel like we're given some sort of stable ground.- One Tree Hill

We all can use a little hope sometimes, you know. That feeling that everything is gonna be okay and that there's gonna be someone there to help make sure of that.- One Tree Hill
Regret comes in all shapes and sizes. Some are small, like when we do a bad thing for a good reason. Some are bigger like when we let down a friend. Some of us escape the pains of regret by making the right choice. Some of us have little time for regret because were looking forward to the future. Sometimes we have to fight to come to terms with the past, and sometimes we bury our regret by promising to change our ways. But our biggest regrets are not for the things we did but for the things we didn't do, things we didn't say that could have saved someone we care about. Especially when we can see the dark storm that's headed their way.- One Tree Hill
Derek: You can't live in fear. Life is about taking risks, not being afraid to go after what you want.
Peyton : I'm just not sure if this is the right time.
Derek : It never is. That's why it's called a risk
When I fell to the floor tonight, I was so scared, I was so terrified. Then I saw you, and I promised myself that if I could just get up, I'd walk over to you... I'd tell you how much I need you and how much I want you... and how nothing else matters.- One Tree Hill
I gave you my heart and that's all I can give you, and if that's not enough, then I'm not enough.- One Tree Hill

Brooke: Haley still loves you. All you have to do is take her back.
Nathan: Right. Kind of like with you and Lucas? You see! It's not so easy getting back in the ring. Ecspecially with the one who knocked you out in the first place.
I was afraid of getting my heart broken again, like before. 'Cause you hurt me so bad, and I was afraid to be vulnerable. And I was afraid of you and the way that you make me feel. And I know that doesn't matter now after what I did, but I just thought that you should know. This was how I spent my summer, wanting you... I'm just too scared to admit it.- One Tree Hill
Here's my philosophy on dating. It's important to have somebody that can make you laugh, somebody you can trust, somebody that, you know, turns you on... And it's really, really important that these three people don't know each other.- One Tree Hill
Lucas: I never meant to hurt you.
Brooke: That doesn't really matter, 'cause in the end it all hurts just the same.

Guy: Buy you a drink?
Brooke: Okay, guy in need of a clue. Here's one. Women send signals. That was a brush off. Before you dip into your shallow pool of wit let me paint us a picture and save us both the trouble. Here's your evening. You are going to slink back off to your buddies, laugh this off, get wasted, go home, and make nice with yourself. But don't be thinking of me, because even your fantasy of me, isn't interested in you
Stepping up. It's a simple concept. It basically means to rise above yourself; to do a little more, to show you something special. Life's funny sometimes; it can push pretty hard like when you fall in love with someone but they forget to love you back like when your best friend and your boyfriend leave you alone, like when you pull the trigger or light the flame and you can't take it back. Like I said, in sports they call this 'stepping up'. In life, I call it pushing back.- One Tree Hill
Remember tonight, for it is the beginning of always. A promise. Like a reward for persisting through life so long alone. A belief in each other and the possibility of love. A decision to ignore, simply rise above the pain of the past. A covenant, which at once binds two souls and yet severs prior ties. A celebration of the chance taken and the challenge that lies ahead. For two will always be stronger than one, like a team braced against the tempest civil world. And love will always be the guiding force in our lives. For tonight is mere formality. Only an announcement to the world of feelings long held. Promises made long ago. In the sacred spaces of our hearts.- One Tree Hill
I thought I knew you. But I guess it's easier to see what we want than to look for the truth.- One Tree Hill
