The wisest Football Coach anyone has ever heard of.
"When someone says you can't do something, you fight back and prove them wrong"
Seriously, there's never been a better Uncle.
"Most people are stronger than they know. They just forget to believe in it sometimes."
Whether Peyton was wise, or just listening to too much Brighteyes we'll never really know.
"Life's too short, to fight, to be miserable, to let the bitter ones change how awesome you are."
Haley James Scott:
Between Haley and Lorelai Gilmore I had every role model for "motherhood" I could ever need coming at me from the WB.
"We spend so much time wanting, pursuing, wishing, but ambition is good. Chasing things with integrity is good, dreaming."
Little boys aren't this smart in real life. Just FYI. Well, maybe if they're raised by Haley.
"Sometimes people have to cry out all their tears to make room for a heart full of smiles."
Clearly this boy was raised by Keith Scott
"You can find the good in everybody, if you just give them a chance."
This girl had by far the most powerful transformation on the show. For someone who claimed people never change, she sure did come a long way.
"Aren't you tired of measuring yourself by what guys think?"
Better known as Mr Brooke Davis, had a few shining moments of his own.
"Well, we're always thinking that someday we'll be happy. You know, we'll get that car or that job or that person in our lives that'll fix everything. But happiness is a mood, and it's a condition, not a destination. It's like being tired or hungry. It's not permanent. It comes and goes, and that's okay. And I feel like if people thought of it that way, they'd find happiness a lot more often"
Definitely this groups conscience.
If Tree Hill had a villain... it was Dan, and he was well aware. But that doesn't mean he was without his own lessons to impart.
"Nothing's worth having if it's based on a lie."
Quinn was sort of a "meh" character that came to replace Peyton when she and Lucas left. She didn't contribute a ton to the story line, but once in a while she spit out a gem.
Sometimes the heart just wants... an old lady.
Every Highschool needs a mean girl. Atleast Rachel wasn't a complete idiot.
"Live life for the moment, because everything else is uncertain."
Oh, Clay, how's your son?
"We waste our words and we waste our moments, and we don't take the time to say the things that are in our hearts when we have the chance."
"Everyday people all over the world get beat down. They lose their families. They lose their friends, and everyday those people fight like hell to put their lives back together. They don't curl in a ball and give up."
