5 Inspirational ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Quotes To Get You Through Your Darkest Days!

Grey’s Anatomy has plenty of quotes that have helped us with our own life situations, some of them even help us get through our darkest days.

Grey’s Anatomy gives us some of the best quotes for us to revert back to when we need a little pick me up! Here are some to keep in your back pocket for those tough times. 

“Just when we think we figured things out, the universe throws us a curveball. So, we have to improvise. We find happiness in unexpected places. We find ourselves back to the things that matter the most. The universe is funny that way. Sometimes it just has a way of making sure we   wind up exactly where we belong.” – Meredith Grey

In Season 7, Episode 10, Meredith Grey gives us advice on how life is unexpected. Whenever you feel like life isn’t on your side, reverting back to this quote allows you to remember that just because everything isn’t going the way it was planned, everything happens for a reason. 


 “You can build a house out of anything. Make it as strong as you want. But a home, a home is more fragile than that. A home is made of the people you fill it with. And people can be broken, sure, but any surgeon knows, what’s broken can be mended. What’s hurt can be healed. That no matter how dark it gets the sun’s going to rise again.” – Meredith Grey

This quote from Meredith in Season 11, Episode 24 allows you to think about what belonging means to you, and what home means to you. Home doesn’t always have to be a destination– it can be the people you surround yourself with, it can be a safe space for you, it can be anything you interpret it to be. And no matter what happens, whatever you feel is broken, there is always room for improvement in your life and things will get better. 


“You Deserve To Be With Somebody Who Makes You Happy. Somebody Who’s Not Gonna Complicate Your Life. Somebody Who Won’t Hurt You.” -Derek Shepherd 

Relationships and love lives seem to be a common reason why a lot of us feel sad or upset at times. In Season 3 Episode 4, Derek Shepherd says this quote. It is a nice saying to think of when you are having relationship problems, or going through something with a significant other– to help make your choice of what you deserve in a relationship. Derek is completely right when he says you don’t need someone to complicate your life, you need someone who won’t hurt you and will treat you the way you deserve to be treated in a relationship.


“If you aren’t willing to keep looking for light in the darkest of places without stopping, even when it seems impossible, you will never succeed.” – Amelia Shepherd

In Season 11, Episode 11, Amelia Shepherd gives us some tough love with this statement; and it may sound cliche, but she tells us that you need to look for the light at the end of the tunnel and that you shouldn’t stop when something seems impracticable. Sometimes cliches are the way to get you through tough times. 


“With a little coffee and a little sunlight, your troubles will get smaller and the world will keep standing.” – Richard Webber

This quote given by Richard Webber in Season 13, Episode 1 explains that we need to stop and appreciate the little things in life sometimes. We are always so consumed with everything that is constantly happening in our lives and we tend to get wrapped up in it all. We happen to forget about the small, little things that allow us to be here, and what we should be grateful for in life, and in the world. To see the beauty in life, and to be able to reflect.
