Quote of the Day: Grey’s Anatomy

Since I have been on a Grey’s Anatomy craze lately, and I didn’t review any books this week, I figured you’d all like a trip down memory lane of some of the best quotes from Grey’s Anatomy.

If you haven’t seen it yet, then you’re missing out!

Hope you enjoy.

“Each of you comes here today hopeful. Wanting in on the game. A month ago you were in med school being taught by doctors. Today, you are the doctors. The seven years you spend here as a surgical residents will be the best and worst of your life. You will be pushed to the breaking point. Look around you. Say hello to your competition. Eight of you will switch to an easier specialty. Five of you will crack under the pressure and two of you will be asked to leave. This is your starting line. This is your arena. How well you play? That’s up to you.” -Richard Webber

“It’s a beautiful day to save lives.” -Derek Shepherd

“I am not an ugly duckling. I’m a swan.”-April Kepner

“I need the day off. For drinking.” -Addison Montgomery

“Sometimes it’s good to be scared. It means you still have something to lose.”-Richard Webber

“Not everyone has to be happy all the time. That isn’t metal health. That’s crap.” -Meredith Grey

“We’re adults. When did that happen? How do we make it stop?” -Meredith Grey

“Shut up. Dance it out.” -Cristina Yang

“We may only be together five minutes every two months, but when we do we will savor every second. We know how valuable those five minutes are.” -Ben Warren

“Yes, horrible things do happen. Happiness, in the face of all of that, that’s not the goal. Feeling horrible, and knowing that you’re not gonna die from those feelings, that’s the point.” -Katherine Wyatt

It’ll hurt every time you think of her. But over time, it will hurt less and less. And eventually you’ll remember her and it will only hurt a little. -Cristina Yang

75. “Why do we even try when the barriers are so high and the odds are so low? Why don’t we just pack it in and go home?” -Amelia Shepherd

“I want so much for you. For both of us. So much more than this. More than being stuck with someone who feels stuck. I want you to feel free.” -Callie Torres

“Do not alarm the makers of the tiny humans. They will eat you.” -Arizona Robbins

“We don’t get unlimited chances to have the things that we want, and this I know. Nothing is worse than missing an opportunity that could have changed your life.” -Addison Montgomery

“Friends are the family we choose.” -Meredith Grey

Taking Notes While Reading. Myth or Reality?

So I’ve heard through the grapevine that apparently some people like to take notes while they read books? Is this true?

And by reading books I don’t mean studying for a university exam. I mean sitting in your comfiest chair and reading your favourite fantasy novel or something.

When I heard that quite a few people did this, I was a little shocked, but I guess it makes sense in the end right?

If you’re a blogger, you’d probably want to remember different aspects of the book that you enjoyed.

Maybe there was a certain scene in the book that really stuck out to you, maybe there was a good foreshadowing in one of the earliest chapters, or maybe a quote that you just really liked.

In the end, whatever notes you took can be used to help create a good book review on your blog, but that is not the system I follow.

I guess to me, note taking seems kind of like I’m ruining my memory of the book.

When I read a book I like to be fully immersed in it. I like to believe that I am a ghost on the wall, experiencing the book’s story unfolding before me.

Taking notes on something I am a part of feels like a betrayal to me and the book.

Will I remember everything that happens? Probably not.

Will I remember that scene from the first chapter that basically foreshadowed the last scene of the book? Again, probably not.

Am I okay with that? Yes.

Why am I okay with that? Because me remembering the book is what I read a book for. What I take away from each book is what sticks with me. There’s a reason it sticks with me, and that’s why I remember it.

Plus, no offense to anybody who does take notes while reading, I don’t have time for that, and I can’t believe anybody does. I already take a long time to read books as it is, I don’t want to take an extra month because I am taking notes while reading a book.

Do you take notes while you’re reading? If so, why?
