One Tree Hill Quotes

Updated on April 2, 2008

One Tree Hill Cast

The popular television show One Tree Hill features quotes at the beginning of each episode. They are spoken by different characters, but most of the time by Lucas.

Some of the One Tree Hill quotes are classics from literature. These are my favorite One Tree Hill quotes. Some are just interesting. Here are some favorite One Tree Hill quotes of mine.

One Tree Hill Lucas

Favorite One Tree Hill Quotes from Season One

Original One Tree Hill quote from the very first episode: Spoken by Lucas

"There is a tide in the affairs of men. Which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune. But omitted, and the voyage of their life is bound in shallows and miseries. On such a full sea are we now afloat, and we must take the current when it serves- or lose the ventures before us."

-William Shakespeare, from Julius Caesar

One Tree Hill quote from the second episode: Spoken by Lucas

"Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark in the hopeless swaps of the not quite, the not yet, and the not at all. Do not let the hero in your soul perish in lonely frustration for the life you deserved and have never been able to reach. The world you desire can be won. It exists. It is real. It is possible. It's yours."

-Ayn Rand, from Atlas Shrugged

One Tree Hill quote from third episode: Spoken by Lucas

"To be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else, means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight. And never stop fighting."

-e.e. cummings

One Tree Hill quote from fourth episode: Spoken by Lucas

"It seems to me that if you or I must choose between two courses of thought or action, we should remember our dying and try so to live that our death brings no pleasure on the world."

-John Steinbeck

One Tree Hill

Favorite One Tree Hill Quotes from Season Two

One Tree Hill quote from third episode of second season: Spoken by Lucas

"Many people die with their music still in them. Too often it is because they are always getting ready to live. Before they know it, time runs out."

-Oliver Wendell Holmes

One Tree Hill quote from fifth episode of season two: Spoken by Lucas

"No man for any considerable period, can wear one face to himself and another to the multitude, without finally getting bewildered as to which may be the true."

-Nathaniel Hawthorne

      Sometimes people put up walls, not to keep people away, but to see who cares enough to tear those walls down.

      I Love One Tree Hill I Love Dan, Lucas, Nathan,Jaime, And Alex I am not a hug fan of Brooke,Haley, Peyton, or Rachel and plus Milly but Nathan Needs To fall in love with Someone else beside Haley she is a brat And the thing that pisses me off Nathan,Lucas,Karen, and Deb are Not Forgiving Dan for killing Keith but Even though it Was Deb who killed Keith but Wasn't in that Episode even Though Jimmy Brought The Gun in the School and Jimmy letting Deb loading that gun So Dan went To Jail for Deb Lee Scott Mistakes and it's all the bad things that Deb let Dan do in the first place
