ER Wisdom

ER Wisdom

A few weeks ago I got decided to begin season 14 of ER (thinking it was the final season since it was the last one on the hard drive), and got immediately re-hooked. Within weeks, mostly late at night, I busted through the last two seasons of a fantastic show. Quite a few times in these many hours, a character would say something profound that moved me, so I’d pause or rewind/replay, and jot it down on an empty envelope on the coffee table. I can’t tell you which character or what episode, but here’s some great one-liners, full of wisdom, from Seasons 14 & 15 of ER.

 

“Sometimes feeling guilty is easier than feeling forgiven.”

“You have a gift. The minute you start comparing yourself to others is the minute that you forget you are doing exactly what you’re meant to do.”

“At the end of the day, you choose to deny, or deal.”

“You don’t have to understand it, just hold on to it.”

“Happiness takes up space; everyone has to make room in their lives.”

“Denial, avoidance, fear; there’s so many things I’ve missed out on because I was afraid.”

I miss that connection with the artist as a person - as an expression in creativity.
