"Gentlemen, the time has come for me to move on. I will always remember the feeling of that hot breeze slapping my face as I walked onto the field on a hot Friday night in Texas… The sizzle of the hot dogs grilling up the concession stand… The smell of the grass… The vibrations from the bleachers as the crowd first roars… And all of your hopeful eyes shining out from underneath those helmets. And you will always be part of me. In my heart and my soul, you are my family. I ask only this of you: Wherever you go, whatever you do, remember this time. Remember this time, when together, we accomplished the impossible. I know wherever I go, whatever I do, I will take these memories with me. I will cherish these memories. Always."
"Every man, at some point in his life, is gonna lose a battle. He is gonna fight and he is gonna lose. But what makes him a man, is that in the midst of that battle, he does not lose himself. This game is not over. This battle is not over. So let’s hear it one more time, together: Clear eyes, full hearts…" (Friday Night Lights, Season 1)
"Two years ago, I was afraid of wanting anything. I figured wanting would lead to trying and trying would lead to failure. But now I find I can’t stop wanting. I want to fly somewhere on first class. I want to travel to Europe on a business trip. I want to get invited to the White House. I want to learn about the world. I want to surprise myself. I want to be important. I want to be the best person I can be. I want to define myself instead of having others define me. I want to win and have people be happy for me. I want to lose and get over it. I want to not be afraid of the unknown. I want to grow up and be generous and big-hearted, the way people have been with me. I want an interesting and surprising life. It’s not that I think I’m going to get all these things.I just want the possibility of getting them."
