“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.”
HALEY JAMES SCOTT The rest of your life is a long time and whether you know it or not, it’s being shaped right now. You can choose to blame your circumstances on fate, or bad luck, or bad choices, or you can fight back. Things aren’t always gonna be fair in the real world, that’s just the way it is. But for the most part you get what you give. Let me ask you all a question; what’s worse, not getting everything you wished for or getting it all and finding out it’s not enough. 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. The rest of your life is a long time and the rest of your life starts right now.
NATHAN SCOTT APPRECIATION WEEK | Day 2 - Favorite OTP ”Last year we stood on a beach, and I told you how much I loved you and how I would always, always protect you. That day, nobody believe that this would work. But I don’t think anybody understand the love that I had for you, because if they did, they would have never doubted us. So, I wanted to marry you all over again, in front of most of our world, because today, when I look into your eyes, my love for you only grows. It’s even stronger now. And our love will never waver. This I Vow to you, today and always, and forever. ”
BROOKE DAVIS When I was a freshman I wasn’t a very good person. I mean sure I was popular and dated seniors… but as a person I was pretty lost. And over the last four years I’ve been forced to grow up. I stopped letting boys define me and I started believing in myself and in my potential. I ran for student council president and I designed a clothing line and somewhere along the way, the lost little party girl became the girl on the wall of honor.
HALEY JAMES SCOTT APPRECIATION WEEK ● Day 6 - Favorite relationship ”Nathan, it’s been said that there’s one word that will free us from the weight and the pain of life, and that world is love. And I believe that. That doesn’t mean that it hasn’t been hard, or that it won’t be, it just means that I’ve found a stillness and bravery in myself, with you. You make me brave. And I will love you until the end of time.”
I was homeschooled a lot, so I’m not the greatest speller, typer, you know. So I would just go home and I would record everything on a recorder. And then my co-star Chris Colfer, who’s an amazing writer, he’s like, “I just imagine you at home, with like a glass of wine being like, ‘Make-up, let’s talk about lipstick.’” And I was like, that’s funny, because that’s actually exactly like that.
"To this day, I’ve never met someone who has understood me more than Jonathan—I can completely be myself, with all my different quirks, and never feel judged. I’ve laughed harder, and cried harder, with Jonathan than I have with anyone else. We’ve been kicked out of Broadway shows for falling into fits of giggles in the audience, and I’ve literally shown up on his doorstep with my heart broken. He always helps me put myself together."
”Maybe were not going to be together for the rest of our lives, but right now I’m in love for the first time. And if I look at this tattoo 20 years from now and it reminds me of how I feel today …. I think I’ll be okay with that.”
Sometimes when you’re young you think nothing can hurt you. It’s like being invincible. Your whole life is ahead of you and you have big plans. Big Plans. To find your perfect match, the one who completes you. But as you get older you realise it’s not always that easy. It’s not until the end of your life that you realise how the plans you made where simply plans. Because at the end when you’re looking back instead of forward you want to believe you made the most of what life gave you. You want to believe you’re leaving something good behind. You want it all to have mattered.
"My name is Lucas Scott. I’m a senior at Tree Hill High School. I play basketball… at least I used to. I have a girlfriend… at least I used to. And I have a best friend. Tree Hill is just a place somewhere in the world. Maybe it’s a lot like your world, maybe it’s nothing like it. But if you look closer, you might see someone like you."
