friday night lights quotes

Σ'αυτή την πόλη εχω την φάση μου,  όταν με πιάνουν τ'άγχη μου αδειαζω το κεφάλι γεμίζοντας το τασάκι μου..

“Every man, at some point in his life, is gonna lose a battle. He is gonna fight and he is gonna lose. But what makes him a man, is that in the midst of that battle, he does not lose himself. This game is not over. This battle is not over. So let’s hear it one more time, together: Clear eyes, full hearts…” (Friday Night Lights, Season 1)

Two years ago, I was afraid of wanting anything. I figured wanting would lead to trying and trying would lead to failure. But now I find I can’t stop wanting. I want to fly somewhere on first class. I want to travel to Europe on a business trip. I want to get invited to the White House. I want to learn about the world. I want to surprise myself. I want to be important. I want to be the best person I can be. I want to define myself instead of having others define me. I want to win and have people be happy for me. I want to lose and get over it. I want to not be afraid of the unknown. I want to grow up and be generous and big hearted, the way people have been with me. I want an interesting and surprising life. It’s not that I think I’m going to get all these things, I just want the possibility of getting them. College represents possibility. The possibility that things are going to change. I can’t wait.
—  Tyra’s essay from the show Friday Night Lights. This stands true for anything that can represent a possibility, not just college. Any opportunity, any open doors. This really struck a cord with me. You have to want it. Whatever your dreams, whatever your hopes, you have to want it. I have to want it. Trying and failing is better than not trying at all. 
Gotta learn when you get hurt, even if it’s with Cupid. He beat you and you went back? You’s officially stupid. Oh yeah, I understand that’s your man, you had a plan, you’ve been together for some years, you sticking with him for the kids. So you overlook the tears but we both know that’s a bad look, cause 20 years from now your daughter will probably get her ass whooped.

You ever prayed for something your whole life? I mean, all you dreamed about was this one thing. I mean, you know it’s coming. You have faith in all that. But sometimes… Sometimes you second guess yourself. That’s human nature, I suppose, second guessing… See, me, I came a long way. Way too far for me to stop now. Not that I would stop anyways but… I’m so close, I can feel it… Can you feel it?
