"Great surgerons aren't made, they're born. It takes gestation, incubation, sacrifice. A lot of sacrifice. But after all the blood and guts and gooey stuff is washed away, that surgeron you become? Totally worth it."
"Giving birth may be all intense and magical and stuff, but the act itself? It's not exactly pleasant. But it's also the beginning of something incredible. Something new. Something unpredictable. Something true. Something worth loving. Something worth missing. Something that will change your life... forever."
- Meredith Grey
