Nine seasons, 187 episodes and 10 years of television and characters to learn from for a lifetime. Through tough times and tears of joy "One Tree Hill" gave us characters with stories we could relate to and quotes that hit home with us, here are just a few of the best OTH quotes from each character that stick out most to me.

1. Brooke Davis

"I wished for this right here without even knowing it. I wished for you and our family and this. Ever since New York, I wanted to come home. I just knew in my heart that there was treasure here, and I found it. In our sons. In my parents. In you. Everyone should have that, a place that makes them happy."

"Do you know what my mother said to me when I told her I wanted to start a company? She said your chances are one in a million. And I said maybe I'm that one, and she said you're not. And she was wrong. Because I am one in a million."

2. Peyton Sawyer

"At this moment, there are 6,470,818,671 people in the world. Some are running scared. Some are coming home. Some tell lies to make it through the day. Others are just now facing the truth. Some are evil men, at war with good. And some are good, struggling with evil. Six billion people in the world. Six billion souls. And sometimes, all you need is one."

"People always leave...but sometimes...they come back."

3. Lucas Scott

"Happiness comes in many forms – in the company of good friends, in the feeling you get when you make someone else's dream come true, or in the promise of hope renewed. It's okay to let yourself be happy because you never know how fleeting that happiness might be."

"…we all need a little help sometimes. Someone to help us hear the music in the world, to remind us that it won't always be this way. That someone is out there. And that someone will find you."

"Peyton! It's you. When all my dreams come true, the one I want next to me. It's you. It's you Peyton."

"It was a comet. The boy saw the comet and he felt as though his life had meaning. And when it went away, he waited his entire life for it to come back to him. It was more than just a comet because of what it brought to his life: direction, beauty, meaning. There are many who couldn't understand, and sometimes he walked among them. But even in his darkest hours, he knew in his heart that someday it would return to him, and his world would be whole again… And his belief in God and love and art would be re-awakened in his heart. The boy saw the comet and suddenly his life had meaning."


4. Haley James Scott

"Love means giving chances when there are no more chances left to give."

"Life is too short to play games. If you love somebody and you wanna be with them then go to them. Deal with the mess later. We don't know what tomorrow will bring."


5. Nathan Scott

"It's the oldest story in the world. One day, you're 17 and planning for someday. And then quietly, without you ever really noticing, someday is today. And then someday is yesterday. And this is your life."

"You know it's been said that we just don't recognize the significant moments of our lives while they're happening. We grow complacent with ideas, or things, or people and we take them for granted and it's usually not until that thing is about to be taken away from you that you've realized how wrong you've been, that you realized how much you love it. God, I love this game."

"Every once in a while, people step up. They rise above themselves. Sometimes they surprise you. And sometimes they fall short. Life is funny sometimes. It can push pretty hard. But if you look close enough, you find hope in the words of children, in the bars of a song and in the eyes of someone you love. And if you're lucky, I mean if you're the luckiest person on this entire planet, the person you love decides to love you back."

"Believe that dreams come true everyday. Because they do."

6. Jamie Scott

"Sometimes people have to cry out all their tears to make room for a heart full of smiles."

7. Quinn James

"It doesn't matter how you plan it. It doesn't matter how you envision it. Without even knowing it, sometimes life has a way of finding you with exactly what you need. Or exactly who you need."

8. Clay Evans

"Sometimes I think we waste our words and we waste our moments, and we don't take the time to say the things that are in our hearts when we have the chance."

9. Whitey Durham

"And when you find yourself lost in the darkness and despair, remember it's only in the black of night you see the stars."

"When somebody says you can't do something, you fight back. You prove them wrong."

10. Julian Baker

"I feel like people get lost when they think of happiness as a destination. We always think that someday we'll be happy. When we get that car or that job or that person in our lives who will fix everything. But happiness is a mood and it's a condition. Not a destination. It's like being tired or hungry. It's not permanent. It comes and goes and that's OK. And if people would think that way, they'd find happiness more often."

11. Keith Scott

"Most people are stronger than they know. They just forget to believe in it sometimes."

12. Chase Adams

"People are going to label you. It's how you over come those labels, that's what matters."

Now if those still weren't enough inspiring quotes from one of the best television shows out there, here is the final scene from the last episode where our beloved characters share their final words of wisdom with all of us. It is for sure going to tug on your heartstrings as you relive the final moments of an amazing show.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
