Favorite One Tree Hill quotes!

I have been watching One Tree Hill since I was 13 years old and it is breaking my heart to know that it is coming to an end after 10 seasons on air! I have been emotionally invested with these characters for 10 years! I have been a religious viewer and never missed an episode and its going to feel weird not having OTH to look forward to anymore.  I am actually watching Season 1-8 on Netflix to remember how it all started and prepare myself for the ending! In the start of every episode and sometimes in the end they have a narrator speak and it used to be Lucas and now each character rotates,  every episode is meaningful and there is a powerful message behind it and that is why I think fans like me really love this show because its deep and very relatable. I know the finale is going to be so EPIC! They always have us on the edge of our toes in tears! Here some of my favorite quotes from past episodes.

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 you let down a friend. Some of us escape the pain of regret by making the right choice. Some of us have little time for regret because we’re 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 your own 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’ve save someone that we care about. Especially when we can see the dark storm that’s headed their way.”

“Truth is still absolute. Believe that. Even when that truth is hard and cold, and more painful than you’ve ever imagined. And even when truth is more cruel than any lie.”

“Does this darkness have a name? This cruelty this hatred. How did it find us, did it steal into our lives or did we seek it out and embrace it? What happened to us that we now send our children into the world like we send young men to war, hoping for their safe return but knowing some will be lost along the way. When did we lose our way? Consumed by the shadows swallowed whole by the darkness. Does this darkness have a name…is it your name?”

“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.”

“If you could go back and change just one thing about your life, would you? and if you did, would that change make your life better? Or would that change ultimately break your heart? or break the heart of another? would you choose an entirely different path? or would you change just one thing? just one moment. one moment that you always wanted back.”

“Happiness comes in many forms. In the company of good friends, in the feeling you get when you make someone else’s dreams come true,or in a promise of hope renewed. It’s ok to let yourself be happy, because you never know how great that happiness might be. 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 it’s so unfamiliar, and in that moment you realize you’re happy.”

“There comes a time when every life goes off course. In this desperate moment you must choose your direction. Will you fight to stay on the path while others tell you who you are? Or will you label yourself? Will you be honored by your choice? Or will you embrace your new path? Each morning you choose to move forward or to simply give up.”

“”Time takes it all, whether you want it to or not. Time takes it all, time bears it away, and in the end there is only darkness. Sometimes we find others in that darkness, and sometimes we lose them there again.”

“Have you ever wondered what marks our time here? If one life can really make an impact on the world? Or if the choices we make matter? I believe they do. And I believe that one man can change many lives… for better or worse!”

E.E. Cummings once wrote: ‘To be nobody but yourself- in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else- means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting.”

“There are moments in our lives when we find ourselves at a crossroads. The choices we make in those moments can define the rest of our days. And, of course when faced with the unknown, most of us prefer to turn around and go back.”

William Shakespeare once wrote: ‘Love is not love which alters when it alteration finds. It is an ever fixed mark that looks on tempests and is never shaken. Love alters not with time’s brief hours and weeks, but bears it out even to the edge of doom.”

Robert Louis Stevenson once wrote: You cannot run away from a weakness; you must sometimes fight it out or perish.”

“Sometimes it’s easy to feel like you’re the only one in the world who’s struggling, who’s frustrated, or unsatisfied at barely getting by. But, that feeling is a lie and if you just hold on; just find the courage to face it all for another day, someone or something will find the way and make it all okay. Because 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.”

“What’s more important? What we become, or how we become it?”

“Do you ever look at a picture of yourself and see a stranger in the background? Makes you wonder how many strangers have pictures of you. How many moments of other people’s lives have we been in? Were we a part of someone’s life when their dreams came true? Or were we there when their dreams died? Did we keep trying to get in as is if we were somehow destined to be there? Or did the shot take us by surprise? Just think. You could be a big part of someone else’s life and not know it.”

“As happens sometimes, a moment settled and hovered and remained for much more than a moment. And sound stopped and movement stopped for much, much more than a moment. And then the moment was gone.”

Henry James wrote, “Be not afraid of life. Believe that life is worth living, and your belief will help create the fact.”

John Steinbeck once wrote.. “It seems to me that if you or I must choose between two courses of thought or action, we should remember our dying, and try so to live, that our death brings no pleasure on the world..”

“Sometimes I wonder if anything is absolute anymore. Is there still right and wrong, good and bad, truth and lies? Or is everything negotiable? Left to interpretation. Gray?”

“You’ve ever wonder how long it takes to change your life? What measure of time is enough to be life altering? is it four years like high school, one year, an eight year rock tour, can your life change in a month, a week, or a single day? we are always in a hurry to grow, to go places, to get ahead but when you ‘ re young, one hour can change everything.”

“Have you ever had a dream that seemed so real, you didn’t know what to believe?”

“Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark in the hopeless swaps of the not quite, the not yet, and the not at all. Do not let the hero in your soul perish in lonely frustration for the life you deserved and have never been able to reach. The world you desire can be won. It exists. It is real. It is possible. It is yours.”

“Some say ravens point travelers in the right direction, some say a single raven is a sight of good fortune to come, but a sight of many ravens means trouble ahead.”

“But if you’re always looking for reasons not to be with somebody, and you always find ’em, then I guess at some point maybe you should let go and give your heart what it deserves.”

“Ida Scott Taylor once wrote: Do not look back and grieve over the past, for it is gone; and do not be troubled about the future, for it has not yet come. Live in the present, and make it so beautiful that it will be worth remembering.”

Tree Hill is a place, and if you look close enough.. you may see someone, someone like you just trying to find their way.”

“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.”

“It’s you. When all my dreams come true, the one I want next to me is you.”

“Haley fell in love with you when you were a lesser person, maybe you should remember Haley even when she’s lesser too.”

“Life comes rushing at you from out of the darkness. When it does, is there someone in your life you can count on? Someone who will watch over you when you stumble and fall? And will their love for you help them to guide you to the light?”

“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. that’s what we should do. so for all you skeptics out there. prepare to be surprised.”

“When so many are lonely, as seem to be lonely, it would be inexcusably selfish, to be lonely alone. – Tennessee Williams.”

“Regret makes you old, and bitterness poisons the people around you.”

“What matters most? Is it about the things we create? The things we achieve? The awards we win? Is it about who we are when we fail?”

And not only the opportunities to succeed but the opportunity to laugh, to see the enchantment in the world and to live.

“Life kicks you around sometimes. It scares you and it beats you up. But there’s one day when you realize you’re not just a survivor. You’re a fighter. You’re tougher than anything life throws your way. And you are.”

“Our biggest regrets are not for the things we have done but for the things we haven’t done and said that might have saved some one we card about.”

“As we strain to grasp the things we desire, the things we think will make our life better, money, popularity, fame, we ignore the things that truly matter. The simple things like friendship, family, love, the things we probably already had.”

“Joseph Condrad once wrote: Who knows what true happiness is? Not the conventional word but the naked terror. To the lonely themselves it wears a mask. The most miserable outcast hugs some memory or some illusion.”
