"she's so good at conceiving things, hiding, avoiding. but i do know her. and i know that she's got so much love in her heart, that the thought of getting it out, showing her cards, scares her to death."

JJ: You know, love’s thoroughly overrated Panda. I’ve never even had a girlfriend, look how happy I am – in between minor psychological breakdowns. Sure, all the serotonin and endorphins and sex etcetera feel good, but really, love – an illusion. It can’t last. Nope.
"I can feel it. It’s got potential, this day. It’s pregnant."
“Do you know what hurts the most about a broken heart? not being able to remember how you felt before…try and keep that feeling, because if it goes, you’ll never get it back. then you lay waste to the world and everything in it.”

Liz: "I want someone who will be monogamous and nice to his mother. And I want someone who likes musicals but knows to just shut his mouth when I'm watching "Lost." And I want someone who thinks being really into cars is lame and strip clubs are gross. I want someone who will actually empty the dishwasher instead of just taking out forks as needed like I do. I want someone with clean hands and feet and beefy forearms like a damn Disney prince. And I want him to genuinely like me even when I'm old. And that's what I want."
"If there is a law against friendship then lock me up. But if there isn't, then the show must go onward." (Kenneth)

“Intimacy is a four syllable word for, ‘Here’s my heart and soul, please grind them into hamburger, and enjoy.’ It’s both desired, and feared. Difficult to live with, and impossible to live without.”
“You can’t control when you lose your heart. The only thing you can do is trust, trust that the person who has your heart realizes it’s value.”
“Alone people don’t like to hear about together people. It’s sort of like bringing a six-pack to an AA meeting.”
“People are stupid and just want to be loved. That’s the only reason anyone does anything.”
What kind of situation? Fire? Flood? Volcano? Because I'm not really dressed for a volcano.
"We're friends, real friends. And that means, no matter how long it takes, when you finally do decide to look back, I'll be here. "
“You didn’t love her, you just didn’t want to be alone. Or maybe, maybe, she was just good for your ego, or maybe she made you feel better about your miserable life, but you didn’t love her, because you don’t destroy the people you love.”
A wise man once said, “You can have anything in life, if you will sacrifice everything else for it.” What he meant is, nothing comes without a price. So, before you go into battle, you better decide how much you’re willing to lose.
Too often, going after what feels good, means letting go of what you know is right. And letting someone in, means abandoning the walls you’ve spent a lifetime building.
Of course, the toughest sacrifices are the ones we don’t see coming. When we don’t have time to come up with a strategy, to pick a side or to measure the potential loss. When that happens, when the battle chooses us, and not the other way around, that’s when the sacrifice can turn out to be more than we can bear.
— Grey Anatomy (Season 2, Episode 24)
“Little pieces of you get chipped away by another person, and you shave little pieces of yourself away so that you’ll fit together, then one day you look up and you don’t even know who you are.”

960 6.6 7.78. One Tree Hill (2003)
“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 need it, how much you love it..”
“Because it´s only when you’re tested that you truly discover who you are. And it´s only when you’re tested that you discover who you can be. The person that you want to be does exist, somewhere in the other side of hard work and faith, and belief and beyond the heartache and fear of what life has.”
2308 7.5 8.89. The Office (US) (2005)
"It's not about who you've been with. It's about who you end up with. Sometimes the heart doesn't know what it wants until it finds what it wants."

1649 7.4 8.110. Bones (2005)
“When you love someone…you open yourself up to suffering, that’s the sad truth. Maybe they’ll break your heart, maybe you’ll break their heart and never be able to look at yourself the same way. Those are risks. That’s the burden. Like wings, they have weight, we feel that weight on our backs, but they are a burden that lifts us. Burdens which allow us to fly.”
2171 6.4 6.911. Sex and the City (1998)
“Maybe all men are a drug. Sometimes they bring you down and sometimes, like now, they get you so high.”
“Isn’t that what you couples do? Support each other’s silly dreams?”
“Maybe mistakes are what make our fate… without them what would shape our lives? Maybe if we had never veered off course we wouldn’t fall in love, have babies, or be who we are. After all, things change, so do cities, people come into your life and they go. But it’s comforting to know that the ones you love are always in your heart… and if you’re very lucky, a plane ride away”
“When you’re young, your whole life is about the pursuit of fun. Then, you grow up and learn to be cautious. You could break a bone or a heart. You look before you leap and sometimes you don’t leap at all because there’s not always someone there to catch you. And in life, there’s no safety net. When did it stop being fun and start being scary?”
“Did I ever really love him, or was I addicted to the pain, the exquisite pain of wanting someone so unattainable?”
4103 8 8.912. House M.D. (2004)
“There’s nothing worse than loving someone who’s never gonna stop disappointing you.”
