Surgery is a solo act. We step up to the table with a scalpel in our hand and we go it alone. The isolation can start to define you because even though you’re surrounded by a team, what it really comes down to is your training, your choices, your wits, your hands, your stitch. It comes down to just you.

Surgeons are trained to go it alone. To be a solo artist. To be a maverick, both in and out of the O.R. But the truth is, we are never alone. We stand on the shoulders of those who came before us. We stand side by side with the colleges who have supported us, prepared us for the moment that every surgeon lives for. When it all comes down to your training, your choices, your wits, your hands, your stitch. When it all comes down to you.

I recall a quote about children handling cancer well and how they are resilient and don't give up. I think it was from Grey's Anatomy but I can't find it. Does this sound at all familiar?

The quote I found doesn’t mention cancer specifically but Arizona says this in season 6: 

This is not general surgery on a miniature scale. These are the tiny humans. These are children. They believe in magic. They play pretend. There is fairy dust in their IV bags. They hope, and they cross their fingers, and they make wishes, and that makes them more resilient than adults. They recover faster, survive worse. They believe.

I am a Grey's Anatomy addict, I started earlier this year and I'm only on season 6 but it's the best show I've ever watched. This isn't a question more like an expression of appreciation for the creator of this page. I've loved the quotes at the beggining and ends of episodes since day one, and we are doing found poems in English right now (a poem where u turn some normal text into poem format), and I thought I would have to listen to a bunch of episodes but then I found this so thanx soo much!

aww yay, i’m glad it could help! 

hi! where can i watch season 3 to season 9? i wasn't able to finish it because i can't download the episodes of season 3. :(

streamallthis has most shows! just google streamallthis and the name of the show and it’ll come up(:

The Harper Avery is one of the highest awards a surgeon can earn. They always make the call to the nominees on the same friday of the same month at 8 A.M. east coast time, 5 A.M. in Seattle.

My mom didn’t think she’d win. She thought it was a popularity contest and she wasn’t popular. She was a woman and fellow and her arrogance could rub people the wrong way. She hadn’t allowed herself to imagine the possibility of winning because she wanted it too much. And when they called my mom’s name, she was genuinely shocked. It was validation of all her handwork and sacrifice. She came home and told me she didn’t win the Harper Avery, she earned it.

Do you by chance know if disappointment, let downs, or failure are mentioned in any of the seasons? If so, could you please let me know which one? Thanks!

Season 10, Ep. 12 talks about failure!

The quote from 4x15 is not totally correct. It's "In (the) face of" instead of "with the base" in the second part of the voiceover. :) I love your blog so much!

ahh, thanks!! i fixed it ^^

The average person touches their face about 18 times every waking hour. That leaves you susceptible to infection about 100 times a day. Infection has a nasty habit of taking advantage of our everyday behaviors. It spreads by touching doors, desks, elevator buttons, pens, sharing cups, even money. All we can do is try our best to prevent it from spreading because once it’s out there, the infection usually wins.

It’s a known fact that doctors make the worst patients. We ignore our symptoms until we are face down on the ground. We like to think we’re a different species than our patients but none of us are invincible. Eventually we have to face the fact that we’re human and that sometimes, even the mightiest of us, need help.

Do you know who you are? Do you know what’s happen to you? Do you want to live this way? All it takes is one person, one patient, one moment to change your life forever. It can change your perspective, color of your thinking. One moment that forces you to rethink everything you know. Do you know who you are? Do you know what’s happen to you? Do you want to live this way? Do you know who you are? Do you know what’s happen to you? Do you want to live this way?
