"The human life is made up of choices. Yes or no. In or out. Up or down. Then there are the choices that matter. To love or hate. To be a hero or to be a coward. To fight or to give in. To live or die."
"Live or die. Hero or coward. Fight or give in. I'll say it again to make sure you hear me, the human life is made up of choices. Live or die. That's the important choice. And it's not always in our hands."
- Derek Shepherd
