Quote it#5

Here’s another quote from the weekly feature quote it. This week’s quote comes from the TV series- Grey’s anatomy which I recently started watching. I would say this quote gives me that ounce of inspiration I wanted and cheers me up when I have failed at something (especially the last line). Here it is-


The early bird catches the worm. A stitch in time saves nine. He who hesitates is lost. We can’t pretend we haven’t been told. We’ve all heard the proverbs, heard the philosophers, heard our grandparents warning us about wasted time, heard the damn poets urging us to seize the day.

Still, sometimes, we have to see for ourselves. We have to make our own mistakes. We have to learn our own lessons. We have to sweep today’s possibility under tomorrow’s rug until we can’t anymore. Until we finally understand for ourselves, what Benjamin Franklin meant:

That knowing, is better than wondering. That waking, is better than sleeping. And that even the biggest failure, even the worst, most intractable mistake, beats the hell out of never trying.

-Meredith Grey, Grey’s anatomy (S1E6)
