"No one can go back and make a new start, but anyone can start from here and make a brand new end."

"Never shall I forget the time I have spent with you. Please continue to be my friend, as you will always find me yours." - Ludwig Van Beethoven

"It was in the middle of High School where I realized that things weren't what they seemed to be. It seems like things would never change. That people that the same person who thought was a bitch two years ago is who you think is a bitch now. If nothing seems to change then it just gets worse. Your best friend ditches you, the guy you like has a girlfriend, your dog dies, you and your mom always fight, and no matter how happy you may be one day, it all changes in a matter of twenty-four hours. The world around you seems to be crashing down upon you. And for the love side of your don't want to go there for the pain is so unbarring. The next morning you will wake up and realize that life is not so bad if you are having fun and all of your friends are getting along. You feel as if life can't get any better. Then the next week your friend will pick a fight, your new crush moves away. Life again seems to be down-pouring on you. Meanwhile everyone else is fine. Everyone else is smiling. You begin

"Graduation is a bittersweet mixture of opportunity and letting go. Seniors are justifiably sentimental. They know the world will never be quite the same."

"We didn't really accomplish anything that night. Nothing of any real importance, anyway. But through the high school years that lay ahead, there would be a thousand other nights, just like that one ... Stupid, ridiculous, and glorious."

"New worlds to explore, new promises to fulfill, new dreams to dream."

"Still I won't say goodbye, won't ever say goodbye. And know that I'll always be your friend." - The Ataris

"I walked through those doors with a half smile on my face.. I walked in expecting to see those 'big seniors' shoving through the hallways, laughing, giving each other bad times. I expected to see them taking their last year and absorbing it all. I expected them to look at me and think, 'Just another lower classmen.' I expected to have one or two in my classes giving the teachers a hard time because they're a 'big senior.' I expected to see my senior friends' faces and to make my last year with them the best that I could. I expected to have a couple more years in this place, if not that, then at least one more. I guess I expected all of the wrong things because I knew that the second I walked through those doors I had become a 'big senior.' This is it, my last year of high school, my last year of those homework assignments that I complained about every day of those 4 years I had been here. Give them back. Please. Give me back those essays. Those book reports. They'll never compare to the things I'm going to have to face in

"It seems like everyone I know is ready to move onto the next level of life. . . but is it too cynical for me to assume that it's not going to be any better? In fact, I'm willing to bet it's pretty much all downhill from here. After education it's more education, for those who can afford it and who have the ability to go, and then after that it's forty hour weeks. No more summer vacations. No more long lazy afternoons to do nothing. No more knowing that nothing really counts yet." - Pacey's Rants

"Okay so, imagine the last four years, your high school career. And try to remember everyone that was once in your life, can you do it? It's been a mere four years and you've probably forgotten at least five people. Now picture the people who you see every day and the people whom you love the most, will they be with you in four years? will you even remember their names? College will come and with it new friends, experiences, and new people that you'll see every day. We won't even cross your mind. The people you know today wont always be with you tomorrow, they'll form their own paths and you'll see them once every ten years at random reunions. The truth is, things change, and unfortunately, this huge milestone in your life is what starts the change. It sparks it, you'll forget about people, new people will be in your life and you and everyone else has to accept that also. Enjoy today, and enjoy tomorrow, because these days come but once in our lives, be thankful for what you have and most of all, for who you have in your life because life's plans for you

"These are the times to remember -- our memories will last forever."

"We laughed together, we cried together, God I hope we die together."

"Please remember when I was there for you, and you were there for me. Please remember our time together, when time was yours and mine and we were wild and free. Please remember, please remember me." - LeAnn Rimes

"We don't remember days, we remember moments." - Cesare Pavese

"Our task now is not to fix the blame for the past, but to fix the course for the future." - John F. Kennedy

"I'll never find another friend to take the place of you. No one will ever touch my world exactly like you do. No one who's quite so thoughtful, no one I cherish so. No one will mean so much to me, I just wanted you to know."

"Don't be dismayed at goodbyes. A farewell is necessary before you can meet again. And meeting again, after moments of lifetimes, is certain for those who are friends." - Richard Bach, Illusions

"What a senior year. Scorned by our lovers, abandoned by our best friends. It's a regular Elizabethan tragedy around this place." - 90210

"maybe that's what I'm starting to realize: the pain is temporary, but the connections we make, they last forever and change our lives in ways we're not even aware of yet."

"The friends who grew up with you deserve a special respect. The ones who stuck by you shoulder to shoulder, in a time where nothing was certain, all life lay ahead, and every road led home." - The Wonder Years
