The Best Quotes from Grey's Anatomy

Everyone who has ever sat down, watched an episode of Grey’s Anatomy, and had their heart torn out by Shonda Rimes can agree that Grey’s is one of the best shows on TV. The story line captures you whether you’ve started from the beginning or somewhere along the way, & the some of the quotes really stick with us, long after we finish watching. Here are some for when you need inspiration or encouragement, or just a reminder of why that you’re amazing the way you are!

1. "Have some fire. Be unstoppable. Be a force of nature. Be better than anyone here, & don't give a damn what anyone thinks. You're on your own. Be on your own." -Cristina Yang 

2. "There's this person inside my head. She's brilliant, capable. She's me, only so much better. & I'm afraid I'll never become this person." -Meredith Grey

3. "If you want crappy things to stop happening to you, then stop accepting crap & start demanding more." -Cristina Yang 

4. "Time flies. Time waits for no man. Time heals all wounds. All any of us wants is more time. Time to stand up. Time to grow up. Time to let go. TIME."
