One Tree Hill is one of the best shows ever. Don't even try to argue with me on that. Between the Lucas and Peyton story, Naley forever, the all around talented B. Davis, and the one who stole the whole show in the later seasons, the adorable Jamie Scott, here are some really great quotes from all our favorite characters that we should really take to heart!
"All you can do is your best, okay?"
"Every day you wait, is another day you'll never get back again."
"I think we waste our words and our moments, and we don't take the time to say the things that are in our hearts when we have the chance."
"Learn to let go of the past, and recognize that every day won't be sunny. And when you find yourself lost in the darkness and despair, remember it's only in the black of nights you see the stars, and those stars will lead you back home. So don't be afraid to make mistakes, to stumble and fall, because most of the time, the greatest rewards come from doing the things that scare you the most. Maybe you'll get everything you wish for. Maybe you'll get more than you could have ever imagined. Who knows where life will take you. The road is long and in the end, the journey is the destination."
"Change is a whisper, it's a season. It's slow and quiet and it's not very dramatic. But it's up to you."
"When you lose yourself you have two choices. Find the person you used to be or lose that person completely."
"In life you can always think of reasons to give up. But if you don't, you might find love in places you never imagined."
"It's okay to let yourself be happy because you never know how fleeting that happiness might be."
"We all can use a little hope sometimes. That feeling that everything's gonna be okay and that there's someone there to make sure of it."
"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."
"You need to learn to let go of whatever it is that makes you think you're not good enough, that's when you learn that you matter."
"People will hurt you. But you can't use that as an excuse to hurt them back."
"That pain in your stomach, that pain in your heart, it goes away. That voice in your head that's saying there's no way out, it's wrong."
"It's not what you say, it's what you do. Don't like the person you've become? Then do something about it, no one's gonna do it for you."
"People always leave. But sometimes, they come back."
"People are gonna label you. It's how you overcome those labels, that's what matters."
"Now is the time for all of us to become the people we always dreamed of being. This is your world. You're here. You matter."
"If you had a friend you knew you would never see again, what would you say? If you could do one last thing for someone you love, what would it be? Say it. Do it. Don't wait. Nothing lasts forever."
"Life is funny sometimes. It can push you pretty hard, but if you look close enough, you can find hope."
"Being afraid is okay. But if you don't work through that fear, you might miss out on some pretty great things."
"Don't let your happiness depend on something that you may lose."
"You got the surviving part down, I want you to focus more on the living."
"There are a handful of moments in your life that you just know while it's happening that you're gonna remember for the rest of your life."
"It's the oldest story in the world. One day you're seventeen and planning for someday, and then quietly and without you ever really noticing, someday is today and then someday is yesterday and this is your life."
"Make your wish. Do you have it? Good. Now believe in it. With all your heart."
