Famous Meredith Grey Quotes

Don’t you wish you could just take it back? That thing you said? That thing you did? There’s no undo button. There’s only hoping we can learn. We can change, right? We can do better. We can’t take back what we’ve done. We can’t undo the past, cause the future keeps coming at us. – Meredith Grey

My college campus has a magic statue. It’s a longstanding tradition for students to rub its nose for good luck. My freshman roommate really believed in the statue’s power and insisted on visiting it to rub its nose before every exam….Studying might have been a better idea, she flunked out at sophomore year. The fact is, we all have little superstitious things that we do….If it’s not believing in magic statues, it’s avoiding sidewalk cracks or always putting our left shoe on first. Knock on wood….Step on a crack, break your mother’s back….The last thing we want to do is offend the gods. – Meredith Grey

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.

Maybe I do believe it, all this ‘meant to be’ stuff. Why not believe it, really? Who doesn’t want more romance in their life? Maybe it’s just up to us to make it happen. To show up and be meant for each other. At least that way you’ll find out for sure if you’re meant to be or not. – Meredith Grey

When we go without certain things long enough, it’s easy to forget just how much we need them. We forget what we had once. We forget what it’s like to live with a thing, not that we need, but that we want. That’s why it’s so important for us to remind ourselves, for us to remember, just because we can live without something, it doesn’t mean we have to. – Meredith Grey

Choose me. Love me. – Meredith Grey

Funny, isn’t it, the way memory works? The things you can’t quite remember, and the things you can never forget. – Meredith Grey

We’ve all hit that point of exhaustion. The point where nothing makes sense anymore. Your body hurts, your brain becomes foggy, and you feel like you’re trapped in a tunnel. When all you want is your bed. So, how do you keep going? How do you not just sit down and give up? Sometimes it’s easy. Sometimes you play games in your head. You make up someone. Someone good. Whatever you need. To keep you going. – Meredith Grey

Change…We don’t like it, we fear it. But we can’t stop it from coming. We either adapt to change, or we get left behind. It hurts to grow. Anybody who tells you it doesn’t, is lying. But here’s the truth: Sometimes, the more things change, the more they stay the same. And sometimes, oh, sometimes, change is good. Sometimes, change is… everything. – Meredith Grey

Time waits for no man. Time heals all wounds. All any of us want, is more time. Time to stand up. Time to grow up. Time to let go. Time. – Meredith Grey

It’s my party and I’ll get drunk if I want to. – Meredith Grey

They say death is hardest on the living. It’s tough to actually say goodbye. Sometimes it’s impossible. You never really stop feeling the loss. It’s what makes things so bitter sweet. We leave little bits of ourselves behind, little reminders. A lifetime of memories, photos, trinkets. Things to remember us by even when were gone. – Meredith Grey

We can’t help ourselves. We see a line, we want to cross it. Maybe it’s the thrill of trading the familiar for the unfamiliar. A sort of personal dare. Only problem is, once you’ve crossed it’s almost impossible to go back….But if you do manage to make it back across that line you find safety in numbers. – Meredith Grey

There’s an end to every storm. Once all the trees have been uprooted. Once all the houses have been ripped apart. The wind will hush. The clouds will part. The rain will stop. The sky will clear in an instant and only then, in those quiet moments after the storm, do we learn who was strong enough to survive it. – Meredith Grey

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. – Meredith Grey

After careful consideration and many sleepless nights, here’s what I’ve decided. There’s no such thing as a grown-up. We move on, we move out, we move away from our families and form our own….But the basic insecurities, the basic fears and all those old wounds just grow up with us….And just when we think that life and circumstance have forced us to truly, once and for all, become an adult,….your mother says something like that….Or worse, something like that….We get bigger, we get taller, we get older. But, for the most part, we’re still a bunch of kids, running around the playground, trying desperately to fit in. – Meredith Grey

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

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. But there are some lines… that are way too dangerous to cross. – Meredith Grey

We see a line we want to cross it. – Meredith Grey

Not all wounds are superficial. Most wounds run deeper than we can imagine. You can’t see them with the naked eye. And then, there are the wounds that take us by surprise. The trick with any kind of wound or disease, is to dig down and find the real source of the injury. And once you’ve found it…try like hell to heal that sucker. – Meredith Grey

There are days that make the sacrifices seem worthwhile…and then there are the days where everything feels like a sacrifice. And then there are the sacrifices that you can’t even figure out why you’re making. A wise man once said, you can have anything in life if you will sacrifice everything else for it. What he meant it, 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, that’s when the sacrifice can turn out to be more than we can bear. – Meredith Grey

Sometimes change is everything. – Meredith Grey

We all have heroes. People we look up to. People we aspire to be, who teach us how to be greater than we are because they are greater than we are. They’re great if we don’t look too closely. ‘Cause if we get too close, we realize heroes are just regular people. And regular people can fail us. – Meredith Grey

We have to keep reinventing ourselves, almost every minute because the world can change in an instant. – Meredith Grey

A good basketball game can have us all on the edge of our seats. Games are all about the glory, pain and the play by play. And then there are the more solitary games….The games we each play all by ourselves….The social games, the mind games, we use them to pass the time to make life more interesting to distract us from what’s really going on….There are those of us who love to play games, any games. And there are those of us who love to play a little too much. – Meredith Grey

We have to learn our own lessons. We have to sweep today’s possibility under tomorrow’s rug until we can’t anymore. Until we finally understand for ourselves what Benjamin Franklin meant. That knowing is better than wondering. That waking is better than sleeping. And that even the biggest failure, even the worst, most intractable mistake beats the hell out of never trying. – Meredith Grey

When the ground gives way and your world collapses, maybe you just need to have faith. And trust that you can survive this. Maybe you just need to hold on tight. And no matter what, don’t let go. – Meredith Grey

Intimacy is a four-syllable word for ‘Here are my heart and soul, please grind them into hamburger, and enjoy.’ – Meredith Grey

When do you throw in the towel? Admit that a lost cause is sometimes just that? There comes a point when it all becomes too much. When we get too tired to fight anymore. So we give up. That’s when the real work begins. To find hope where there seems to be absolutely none at all. – Meredith Grey

There’s a reason doctors prefer to see a patient in person, face to face. It’s the laying on of hands. Human touch. That spark of connection. We lay hands on each other so we feel like we’re all in this together. We connect with each other. Because if we didn’t, we would all feel so, so alone. – Meredith Grey

Letting go is the easy part, it’s the moving on that’s painful. So sometimes we fight it, trying to keep things the same. Things can’t stay the same though. At some point you just have to let it go. Move on. Because no matter how painful it is, it’s the only way we grow. – Meredith Grey

Pain, you just have to ride it out, hope it goes away on its own, hope the wound that caused it heals. There are no solutions, no easy answers, you just breath deep and wait for it to subside. Most of the time pain can be managed but sometimes the pain gets you where you least expect it. Hits way below the belt and doesn’t let up. Pain, you just have to fight through, because the truth is you can’t outrun it and life always makes more. – Meredith Grey

Failure is inevitable, unavoidable. But failure should never get the last word. You have to hold on to what you want. You have to not take no for an answer, and take what’s coming to you. Never give in. Never give up. Stand up. Stand up and take it. – Meredith Grey

I had one great love in my life and he died. – Meredith Grey

Maybe because when we see how little we actually need to survive, it makes us realize how powerful we actually are. To strip down to only what we need. To hang on to only what we can’t do without. Not just to survive, but to thrive. – Meredith Grey

The thing about addiction is it never ends well, because eventually, whatever it is that was getting us high stops feeling good and starts to hurt. Still, they say you don’t kick the habit until you hit rock bottom, but how do you know when you’re there? Because no matter how badly a thing is hurting us, sometimes letting it go hurts even worse. – Meredith Grey

They say the bigger your investment, the bigger your return. But you have to be willing to take a chance. You have to understand, you might lose it all. But if you take that chance, if you invest wisely, the payoff just might surprise you. – Meredith Grey

The early bird catches the worm; a stitch in time saves nine….He who hesitates is lost. We can’t pretend we haven’t been told. We’ve all heard the proverbs, heard the philosophers, heard our grandparents warning us about wasted time, heard the damn poets urging us to ‘seize the day’. Still sometimes we have to see for ourselves….We have to make our own mistakes….We have to learn our own lessons….We have to sweep today’s possibility under tomorrow’s rug until we can’t anymore, until we finally understand for ourselves what Benjamin Franklin meant. That knowing is better than wondering, that waking is better than sleeping….And that even the biggest failure, even the worst most intractable mistake beats the hell out of never trying. – Meredith Grey

They say death is hardest on the living. It’s tough to actually say goodbye. Sometimes it’s impossible. You never really stop feeling the loss. It’s what makes things so bittersweet. We leave little bits of ourselves behind, little reminders. A lifetime of memories, photos, trinkets. Things to remember us by even when we’re gone. – Meredith Grey

Why do bad things happen to good people? – Meredith Grey

Life is not a spectator sport. Win, lose, or draw, the game is in progress, whether we want it to be or not. So go ahead argue with the refs, change the rules, cheat a little, take a break and tend to your wounds. But play. Play hard, play fast, play loose and free. Play as if there’s no tomorrow. Okay, so it’s not whether you win or lose, it’s how you play the game, right? – Meredith Grey

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

As doctors, patients are always telling us how they would do our jobs. Just stitch me up, slap a Band-Aid on it and send me home. It’s easy to suggest a quick solution, when you don’t know much about the problem or when you don’t understand the underlying cause or just how deep the wound really is….The first step toward a real cure is to know exactly what the disease is to begin with. But that’s not what people want to hear….We’re supposed to forget the past that landed us here, ignore the future complications that might arise and go for the quick fix. – Meredith Grey

Adapt or die. As many times as we’ve heard it, the lesson doesn’t get easier. Problem is, we’re human. We want more than just to survive. We want success. We want to be the best we can be so we fight like hell to get those things. Anything else feels like death. – Meredith Grey

We have to be willing to give up what we used to believe. The more we’re willing to accept what is and not what we thought, we’ll find ourselves exactly where we belong. – Meredith Grey

It’s not us. It’s them. Them and their stupid boy…penises. – Meredith Grey

No one likes to lose control, but as a surgeon there’s nothing worse. It’s a sign of weakness. Of not being up to the task. And still, there are times when it just gets away from you. When the world stops spinning and you realize that your shiny little scalpel isn’t going to save you. No matter how hard you fight it, you fall and its scary as hell. Except there’s an upside to free-falling….It’s the chance you give your friends to catch you. – Meredith Grey

Pain, you just have to fight through, because the truth is you can’t outrun it, and life always makes more. – Meredith Grey

The length of your recovery is determined by the extent of your injuries. And it’s not always successful. No matter how hard we work at it, some wounds might never fully heal. You might have to adjust to a whole new way of living. Things may have changed too radically to ever go back to what they were. It might not even recognize yourself. It’s like you haven’t recovered anything at all. You’re a whole new person with a whole new life. – Meredith Grey

Just when we think we’ve figured things out, the universe throws us a curve ball. So we have to improvise. We find happiness in unexpected places. We find our way back to the things that matter the most. The universe is funny that way, sometimes it just has a way of making sure we wind up exactly where we belong. – Meredith Grey

When the bad things come, they come out of nowhere. The bad things come suddenly, with no warning. But we forget that sometimes that’s how the good things come too. – Meredith Grey

The key to making progress is to recognize how to take that very first step. Then you start your journey. You hope for the best and you stick with it, day in, day out. Even if you’re tired, even if you want to walk away, you don’t. Because you are a pioneer. And nobody ever said it’d be easy. – Meredith Grey

When you were a kid, it was Halloween candy. You hid it from your parents and ate it until you got sick….In college, it was the heavy combo of youth, tequila and well, you know. As a surgeon, you take as much of the good as you can get because it doesn’t come around nearly as often as it should. ‘Cause good things aren’t always what they seem….Too much of anything, even love, is not always a good thing. – Meredith Grey

So pick me. Choose me. Love me. – Meredith Grey

The key to surviving a surgical internship is denial. We deny that we’re tired, we deny that we’re scared, we deny how badly we want to succeed. And most importantly, we deny that we’re in denial. – Meredith Grey

Deep down, everyone wants to believe they can be hardcore. But being hardcore isn’t just about being tough — it’s about acceptance. – Meredith Grey

As doctors, as friends, as human beings, we all try to do the best we can….But the world is full of unexpected twists and turns. And just when you’ve gotten the lay of the land, the ground underneath you shifts. And knocks you off your feet. If you’re lucky, you’ll end up with nothing more than a flesh wound, something a Band-Aid will cover….But, some wounds are deeper than they first appear and require more than just a quick fix….With some wounds, you have to rip off the band-aid, let them breathe, and give them time to heal. – Meredith Grey

Why does it feel so good to get rid of things? To unload? To let go? – Meredith Grey

You don’t have to be tough every minute of every day. It’s okay to let down your guard. In fact, there are moments when it’s the best thing you can possibly do — as long as you choose your moments wisely. – Meredith Grey

Some people believe that without history, our lives amount to nothing. At some point, we all have to choose. Do we fall back on what we know? Or, do we step forward, to something new? It’s hard not to be haunted by our past. Our history is what shapes us, what guides us. Our history resurfaces. Time, after time, after time. So we have to remember. Sometimes, the most important history, is the history we’re making today. – Meredith Grey

Sometimes reality has a way of sneaking up and biting us in the ass. – Meredith Grey

So, you keep going. You don’t give up. You stand tall. You fight. You always show up to save the day. – Meredith Grey

More tequila. More love. More anything. More is better. – Meredith Grey

Who gets to determine when the old ends, and the new begins? It’s not a day on a calendar, not a birthday, not a new year. It’s an event. Big or small. Something that changes us. Ideally, it gives us hope. A new way of living and looking at the world. Letting go of old habits, old memories. What’s important is that we never stop believing we can have a new beginning. But it’s also important to remember that amid all the crap are a few things really worth holding on to. – Meredith Grey

Maybe we’re not supposed to be happy, maybe gratitude has nothing to do with joy. 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

We’re adults. When did that happen? And how do we make it stop? – Meredith Grey

Which of these quotes and lines is your favorite? What’s your favorite season of Grey’s Anatomy? Let us know your thoughts down below! – Meredith Grey

So better health is a direct result of healthy relationships. You don’t need a spouse, you just need someone you can trust, you need someone you can talk to, you need someone who will celebrate your wins and grieve your losses, you need someone who can forgive you, you need someone who will show, no questions asked and walk with you through every unexpected twists and turns life throws your way. – Meredith Grey

We’re all damaged, it seems. Some of us, more than others….We carry the damage with us from childhood, then as grownups, we give as good as we get….Ultimately, we all do damage….And then, we set about the business of fixing whatever we can. – Meredith Grey

We all go through life like bulls in a china shop. A chip here, a crack there. Doing damage to ourselves, to other people….The problem is trying to figure out how to control the damage we’ve done, or that’s been done to us….Sometimes the damage catches us by surprise….Sometimes we think we can fix the damage….And sometimes the damage is something we can’t even see. – Meredith Grey

What’s up with the need to hit the self-destruct button? Maybe we like the pain. Maybe we’re wired that way because without it….I don’t know. Maybe we just wouldn’t feel real. What’s that saying….Why do I keep hitting myself with a hammer? Because it feels so good when I stop. – Meredith Grey

Some wounds we carry with us everywhere and though the cuts long gone, the pain still lingers. – Meredith Grey

We’ll try and we’ll fail again because that’s what progress looks like. Progress looks like a bunch of failures. And you’re going to have feelings about that because it’s sad, but you cannot fall apart. And then one day, we will succeed and save a person’s life and we will walk on the moon. – Meredith Grey

If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. The saying’s as true of the human body as it is of a washing machine or a blender. A good surgeon knows that if you go screwing around with something that doesn’t need screwing, you are the one who is liable to end up screwed. – Meredith Grey

The thing about love is, when it’s good, it’s so very good, and when it’s bad, it hurts so much. – Meredith Grey

When we follow our hearts, when we choose not to settle, it’s funny isn’t it? A weight lifts. The sun shines a little brighter and for a brief moment at least, we find a little peace. – Meredith Grey

Too often, the thing you want most is the one thing you can’t have. Desire leaves us heartbroken, it wears us out. Desire can wreck your life. But as tough as wanting something can be, the people who suffer the most, are those who don’t know what they want. – Meredith Grey

People have scars in all sorts of unexpected places. Like secret road maps of their personal histories, diagrams of all of their old wounds. Most of our old wounds heal, leaving nothing behind but a scar. But some of them, don’t. Some wounds, we carry with us everywhere… and though the cut is long gone, the pain still lingers. What’s worse? New wounds, which are so horribly painful, or old wounds, which should have healed years ago, and never did? Maybe our old wounds teach us something. They remind us where we’ve been, and what we’ve overcome. They teach us lessons about what to avoid in the future. That’s what we like to think. But that’s not the way it is, is it? Some things we just have to learn over and over and over… again. – Meredith Grey

Responsibility. It really does suck….Unfortunately, once you get past the age of braces and training bras, responsibility doesn’t go away. – Meredith Grey

The future is the home of our deepest fears and our wildest hopes. But one thing is certain: When it finally reveals itself, the future is never the way we imagined it. – Meredith Grey

We’re all susceptible to it. The dread and anxiety of not knowing what’s coming. It’s pointless in the end. Because all the worrying, and all the making of plans for things that could, or could not happen, it only makes things worse. So walk your dog. Or take a nap. Just, whatever you do, stop worrying. Because the only cure for paranoia, is to be here. Just as you are. – Meredith Grey

You know how when you were a little kid and you believed in fairy tales? That fantasy of what your life would be—white dress, Prince Charming who’d carry you away to a castle on a hill. You’d lie in bed at night and close your eyes and you had complete and utter faith….Santa Claus, the Tooth Fairy, Prince Charming—they were so close you could taste them. …But eventually you grow up, one day you open your eyes and the fairy tale disappears….Most people turn to the things and people they can trust….But the thing is, it’s hard to let go of that fairy tale entirely because almost everyone still has that smallest bit of hope and faith that one day they’ll open their eyes and it will all come true. – Meredith Grey

You’re letting her think you’re emotionally available. You’re letting her think she has a chance. And there is nothing worse in the world than thinking you have a chance when you really don’t. – Meredith Grey

At the end of the day, there are some things you just can’t help but talk about….Some things we just don’t want to hear, and some things we say because we can’t be silent any longer…..Some things are more than what you say, they’re what you do…..Some things you say because there’s no other choice…..Some things you keep to yourself…..And not too often, but every now and then, some things simply speak for themselves. – Meredith Grey

I think it is important to take the time to tell the people you love how much you love them while they can still hear you. – Meredith Grey

The ties that bind us are sometimes impossible to explain. – Meredith Grey

Sometimes it’s good to be scared. It means you still have something to lose… – Meredith Grey

You think that true love is the only thing that could crush your heart, the thing that could take your life and light it up or destroy it. – Meredith Grey

Just because we can live without something, it doesn’t mean we have to. – Meredith Grey

I think you can’t wait for someone to fly underneath you and save your life. I think you have to save yourself. – Meredith Grey

The reality is that pain is there to tell us something, and there’s only so much pleasure we can take without getting a stomachache. And maybe that’s okay. Maybe some fantasies are only supposed to live in our dreams. – Meredith Grey

Okay, here it is. Your choice, it’s simple, her or me. And I’m sure she’s really great. But Derek, 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. – Meredith Grey

Sometimes it takes a huge loss to remind you of what you care about the most. Sometimes you find yourself becoming stronger as a result, wiser, better to deal the next big disaster that comes along. Sometimes but not always. – Meredith Grey

So, do it. Decide. Is this the life you want to live? Is this the person you want to love? Is this the best you can be? Can you be stronger? Kinder? More compassionate? Decide. Breathe in. Breathe out and decide. – Meredith Grey

Fresh starts. Thanks to the calendar, they happen every year. Just set your watch to January. Our reward for surviving the holiday season, is a new year. Bringing on the great tradition of New Year’s resolutions. Put your past behind you, and start over. It’s hard to resist the chance at a new beginning. A chance to put the problems of last year to bed. – Meredith Grey

In life we are taught that there are seven deadly sins….We all know the big ones… gluttony, pride, lust….But the sin you don’t hear much about is anger. Maybe it’s because we think anger’s not that dangerous….That you can control it….My point is, maybe we don’t give anger enough credit….Maybe it can be a lot more dangerous than we think. After all, when it comes to destructive behavior, it did make the top seven. – Meredith Grey

The body is a slave to its impulses. But the thing that makes us human is what we can control. After the storm, after the rush, after the heat of the moment has passed, we can cool off and clean up the messes we made. We can try to let go of what was. – Meredith Grey

You gotta wonder why we cling to our expectations. Because the expected is just what keeps us steady… standing… still. The expected is just the beginning. The unexpected… is what changes our lives. – Meredith Grey

Pain comes in all forms. The small twinge, a bit of soreness, the random pain, the normal pains we live with everyday. Then there is the kind of pain you can’t ignore. A level of pain so great that it blocks out everything else. – Meredith Grey

If you want to be a shark, be a shark. Don’t apologize for it. – Meredith Grey

It’s all about lines. The finish line at the end of residency, waiting in line for a chance at the operating table, and then there’s the most important line, the line separating you from the people you work with. It doesn’t help to get too familiar, to make friends. You need boundaries, between you and the rest of the world. Other people are far too messy. It’s all about lines. Drawing lines in the sand and praying like hell no one crosses them. – Meredith Grey

What’s worse? New wounds, which are so horribly painful, or old wounds that should have healed years ago and never did? Maybe our old wounds teach us something. They remind us where we’ve been and what we’ve overcome. They teach us lessons about what to avoid in the future. That’s what we like to think, but that’s not the way it is, is it? Some things we just have to learn over and over and over again. – Meredith Grey

The harder the hit, the more it’ll sting. That’s usually the case. So we prescribe meds, ice, compression, elevation. Things you do to stop the immediate pain. But you can only dull the pain for so long, and when the drugs start to wear off, it really hurts. – Meredith Grey

You can seek the advice of others, surround yourself with trusted advisers, but in the end, the decision is always yours and yours alone. And when it’s time to act and you’re all alone with your back against the wall, the only voice that matters is the one in your head. The one telling you what you probably already knew. The one that’s almost always right. – Meredith Grey

We’re adults. When did that happen? And how do we make it stop? – Meredith Grey

Scientists still don’t really know why we sleep. We just know we have to sleep, because without it, we make poor decisions, we say things we shouldn’t, and sometimes, we see things that aren’t there. – Meredith Grey

In hospitals they say you know. You know when you’re going to die. Some doctors say it’s a look patients get in their eyes. Some say there’s a scent, a smell of death. Some say there’s just some kind of sixth sense, when the great beyond is heading for you, you feel it coming. Whatever it is, it’s creepy. Because if you know, what do you do about it? Forget about the fact that you’re scared out of your mind. If you knew this was your last day on earth, how would you want to spend it? – Meredith Grey

The thing people forget is how good it can feel when you finally set secrets free. Whether good or bad, at least they’re out in the open, like it or not….And once your secrets are out in the open, you don’t have to hide behind them anymore….The problem with secrets is even when you think you’re in control…you’re not. – Meredith Grey

We all think we’re going to be great. And we feel a little bit robbed when our expectations aren’t met. But, sometimes, our expectations sell us short. Sometimes, the expected simply pales in comparison to the unexpected. You gotta wonder why we cling to our expectations. Because the expected is just what keeps us steady… standing…still. The expected is just the beginning. The unexpected…is what changes our lives. – Meredith Grey

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

We’re friends, real friends, and that means no matter how long it takes, when you finally decide to look back…I’ll still be here. – Meredith Grey

We have to constantly come up with new ways to fix ourselves. – Meredith Grey

I wish there were a rulebook for intimacy. Some kind of a guide that can tell you when you’ve crossed the line. – Meredith Grey
