“You know, 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 and I ran for student counsel president and I designed a clothing line and somewhere along the way, the lost little party girl became the girl on the wall of honour.”
“You know, my father said that today would be the greatest day of my life. And you’re right, dad. It is. But it’s not because of basketball. You see, today I learned that my wife, Haley, is pregnant. And while it’s an absolute honor to be recruited by Duke University, I guess what I have to say to you today is this. Where I play basketball - if I play basketball - is no longer a decision for me to make alone. It’s a decision that I’ll make with my wife and my family’s best interests at heart. And when I do, I’ll let you all know. And my wife couldn’t be here today, so I just wanted to say one thing to her. Haley, no matter what happens, we’ll face it together. But I promise you, I’ve never been happier. Everything’s gonna be okay. I love you.”
Do you know what my mother said to me when I told her I wanted to start a company? She said your chances are one in a million. And I said maybe I’m that one, and she said you’re not. And she was wrong. And whatever she thought she saw in me, was wrong. Because I am one in a million.
At this moment, there are 6 billion, 470 million, 818 thousand, 671 people in the world. Some are running scared. Some are coming home. Some tell lies to make it through the day.

Realize now that when your heart breaks, you got to fight like hell to make sure your still alive. Because you are. And that pain you feel? That’s life. The confusion and fear? That’s there to remind you, that somewhere out there is something better, and that something is worth fighting for.
one tree hill meme [4/8] quotes: “It’s the oldest story in the world. One day, you’re 17 and playing for someday, and then quietly and without you really noticing, someday is today, and then someday is yesterday, and this is your life. We spend so much time wanting, pursuing, wishing. But ambition is good, chasing things with integrity is good, dreaming. If you had a friend you knew you’d never see again, what would you say? If you could do one last thing for someone you love, what would it be? Say it. Do it. Don’t wait. Nothing lasts forever.”
