Brooke: George Bernard Shaw once wrote: "There are two tragedies in life. One is to lose your heart's desire. The other is to gain it." Clearly, Shaw had his heart broken once or twice.
Nathan Scott: As far as I'm concerned, Shaw was a punk. Cause you know what? Tragedies happen. What are you gonna do, give up? Quit? No. I 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.
Haley James: This year, I got everything I wanted and everything I wished for. But in a way, I lost even more.
Lucas 'Luke' Scott: Shaw was right. As we strain to grasp the things we desire, the things we think will make our lives better: money, popularity, fame... we ignore what truly matters, the simple things, like friendship, family, love. The things we probably already had.
Mouth McFadden: So Mr. Shaw thinks that getting your heart's desire is a tragedy? I say he's wrong. I mean, clearly Shaw never kissed Erica Marsh.
Peyton Elizabeth Sawyer: Yes, losing your heart's desire is tragic. But gaining your heart's desire? That's all you can hope for. This year I wished for love... to immerse myself in someone else and to wake a heart long afraid to feel. My wish was granted. And if having that is tragic, then give me tragedy. Because I wouldn't give it back for the world.
Jake Jaglieski: I could have held you in my arms forever, and it still wouldn't have been long enough.
Lucas 'Luke' Scott: And Hansel said to Gretal: Let us drop these bread crumbs, so that together we find our way home, because losing our way would be the most cruel of things." This year I lost my way.
Nathan Scott: And losing your way on a journey is unfortunate. But losing your reason for the journey... is a fate more cruel.
Peyton Elizabeth Sawyer: The journey lasted eight months. Sometimes I traveled alone. Sometimes there were others who took the wheel, and took my heart. But when the destination was reached, it wasn't me who'd arrived. It wasn't me at all.
Brooke: And once you lose yourself, you have two choices. Find the person you used to be, or lose that person completely.
Mouth McFadden: Because sometimes, you have to step outside of the person you've been, and remember the person you were meant to be. The person you wanted to be. The person you are.
Chris Keller: [playing guitar as Brooke walks by his hotel room] Lucas and Haley aren't back yet, but you can come on into the devil's lair, put down your things, have sex with Chris Keller... whatever.
Dan Scott: How great is this? Dinner together... steaks on the grill... you not punching me...
Lucas 'Luke' Scott: I don't see why you get off by screwing things up!
Chris Keller: How? By having sex with Haley?
[Lucas looks shocked]
Chris Keller: Because we haven't done that.
Brooke Davis: George Bernard Shaw said that " There are two tragedies in life, one is to lose your hearts desire, the other is to gain it." He's obviously had his heart broken a few times.
