Grey's Anatomy is one of the most popular shows on television and has been since 2005 even through all of the catastrophes, deaths, and extraordinary moments. I'm pretty sure many of us have been able to relate to all of the classic Meredith Grey narrations as well as many other quotes from the show.


1. "Cause you never think that the last time is the last time. You think there will be more. You think you have forever, but you don't." - Meredith Grey

2. "Don't let fear keep you quiet. You have a voice so use it. Speak up. Raise your hands. Shout your answers. Make yourself heard. Whatever it takes, just find your voice, and when you do, fill the damn silence." - Meredith Grey

3. "Sometimes it's good to be scared. It means you still have something to lose." - Richard Webber

4. "Have some fire. Be unstoppable. Be a force of nature." - Christina Yang

5. "At some point, you have to make a decision. Boundaries don't keep other people out. They fence you in. Life is messy. That's how we're made. So, you can waste your lives drawing lines. Or you can live your life crossing them." - Meredith Grey

6. "If I murdered someone, she's the person I'd call to help me drag the corpse across the living room floor." - Christina Yang

7. "We spend our whole lives worrying about the future, planning for the future, trying to predict the future, as if figuring it out will cushion the blow. But the future is always changing. The future is the home of our deepest fears and wildest hopes. But one thing is certain, when it finally reveals itself. The future is never the way we imagined it." - Meredith Grey

8. "We’re friends, real friends. And that means, no matter how long it takes, when you finally do decide to look back, I’ll still be here." - Meredith Grey

9. "Okay… Here it is. Your choice, it’s simple her or me. And I’m sure she’s really great. But, I love you. In a really, really big pretend to like your taste in music, let you eat the last piece of cheesecake, hold a radio over my head outside your window, unfortunate way that makes me hate you, love you. So pick me, choose me, love me."

- Merdith Grey

10. "Knowing is better than wondering. Waking is better than sleeping, and even the biggest failure, even the worst, beats the hell out of never trying." - Meredith Grey

11. "Not everybody has to be happy all the time. That’s not mental health. That’s crap." - Meredith Grey

12. "Maybe being grateful means recognizing what you have for what it is. Appreciating small victories. Admiring the struggle it takes simply to be human. Maybe we’re thankful for the familiar things we know. And maybe we’re thankful for the things we’ll never know. At the end of the day, the fact that we have the courage to still be standing is reason enough to celebrate." - Meredith Grey

12. "If you love someone you tell them. Even if you’re scared that it’s not the right thing. Even if you’re scared it’ll cause problems. Even if you’re scared that it will burn your life to the ground. You say it. You say it loud." - Mark Sloan

13. "If there's just one piece of advice I can give you, it’s this; when there’s something you really want, fight for it, don’t give up no matter how hopeless it seems. And when you’ve lost hope, ask yourself, 10 years from now, you’re gonna wish you gave it just one more shot because the best things in life, they don’t come free." - Meredith Grey

14. "You are my person. You will always be my person." - Christina Yang

15. "As human beings, sometimes it’s better to stay in the dark, because in the dark there may be fear, but there is also hope." - Meredith Grey

16. "You don’t get to call me a whore. When I met you I thought I had found the person that I was going to spend the rest of my life with. I was done. So all the boys, and all the bars, and all the obvious daddy issues, who cared? Because I was done. You left me. You chose Addison. I’m all glued back together now. I make no apologies for how I chose to repair what you broke. You don’t get to call me a whore." - Meredith Grey

17. "Make a plan. Set a goal. Work toward it. But every now and then, look around. Drink it in, cause this is it. It might all be gone tomorrow." - Meredith Grey

18."There’s a reason I said I’d be happy alone. It wasn’t cause I thought I’d be happy alone, it’s easier to be done, because what if you learn that you need love and you don’t have it? What if you like it and lean on it? What if you shape your life around it and then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage, it’s like dying. The only difference is death ends. This? It could go on forever." - Meredith Grey

19 "It’s a beautiful day to save lives. Let’s have some fun." - Derek Shepherd

20. "Once in a blue moon, people will surprise you and once in awhile, people may even take your breath away." - Meredith grey

22. "Oh screw beautiful! I’m brilliant! If you want to appease me, compliment my brain." - Christina Yang

23. "At the end of the day, when it comes down to it, all we really want is to be close to somebody. So this thing where we all keep our distance and pretend not to care about each other, it’s usually a load of bull." - Meredith Grey

27. "The human life is made up of choices. Yes or no. In or out. Up or down. And then there are the choices that matter. Love or hate. To be a hero or to be a coward. To fight or to give in. To live or die. Live or die, that’s the important choice. And it’s not always in our hands." - Derek Shepherd

28. "Reality. It’s so much more interesting than living happily ever after." - Meredith Grey

32. "I am woman. Hear me roar." - Miranda Bailey

The seven years you spend here as a surgical resident will be the best and worst of your life. You will be pushed to the breaking point. Look around you. Say hello to your competition. Eight of you will switch to an easier specialty. Five of you will crack under the pressure and two of you will be asked to leave. This is your starting line. This is your arena. How well you play? That's up to you." - Richard Webber

38. "I wanna marry you. I wanna have kids with you. I wanna build a house. I wanna settle down and grow old with you. I wanna die when I'm 110 years old, in your arms. I don't want 48 uninterrupted hours. I want a lifetime." - Derek Shepherd

39. "I'm a human being, I make mistakes. I'm flawed, we all are." - Derek Shepherd

40. "You were like coming up for fresh air. It's like I was drowning and you saved me. That's all I know." - Derek Shepherd

41. "I wanna punch your face." - Meredith Grey

42. "Somebody sedate me." - Christina Yang

43. "Today's the day my life begins. All my life I've been just me. Just a smart mouth kid. Today I become a man. Today I become a husband. Today I become accountable to someone other than myself. Today I become accountable to you. To our future. To all the possibilities that a marriage has to offer. Together, no matter what happens, I'll be ready. For anything. For everything. To take on life, to take on love. To take on possibility and responsibility. Today Izzie Stevens, our life together begins and I for one can't wait." - Alex Karev

Board Games Are More Important Than You Think They Are

They've become a defining part of my family.

680

Remember when you were a kid and you'd have a family game night? Or your friends would come over and you'd open the game cabinet and play at least three different games together?

Maybe it's just me, but those are some of my best memories from my childhood. My family loves games, board games, and electronic games.

Of course, as I got older, gaming consoles like PlayStation and Wii became more and more popular. That meant that the game cabinet was opened less and less, collecting dust.

Thankfully, I live in New Jersey near the shore and Hurricane Sandy left my family with no power for five days. Sure, it was scary not having power and walking around my neighborhood seeing fallen trees or roof shingles, but we were inland enough to not have had any flood water damage.

No power also meant no PlayStation or Wii games. The gaming cabinet was opened again, this time with vigor. Now, four years later, and I still think about sitting in the dark with a flashlight playing Scrabble with my family.

That was also the week I learned how to play Yahtzee and dominated my dad in every game. My sister constantly was looking for someone to play her to Battleship. We exhausted Rummikub.

The game was already a family favorite, and that's including extended family. Family barbeques had been ending with late night games of Rummikub for at least a year by the time Sandy hit.

We were ready to strategize and crunch numbers, but after day three, we never wanted to a number ever again.

This semester, there's been a surge of board game love again in my family. My sister bought Jenga, which we are currently trying to exhaust ourselves with. My favorite board game also had a comeback: Life.

I loved this game so much that I had the SpongeBob version as a kid. I would play it with my best friend, just the two of us, playing game after game of Bikini Bottom themed Life. Now, I have a car full of "kids" that I've started to make pets in my head. I can handle having five pretend dogs, but not five pretend kids.

I don't know what it is about board games, but my family has always had an affinity for them. We've gone through our cycles of playing video games and card games, but we always come back to the classics. Maybe it's more a defining part of my family than I originally thought.
