Netflix has been an irreplaceable gift to the current generation, especially the crazy people who dwell their lives into the lives of the characters, in various series. ‘13 Reasons Why’ is one such gift, unless you are completely void with the existence of internet, you know about 13 Reasons Why. 13 Reasons Why makes us think deep on how what we say, has an effect on the other; how one small stone for us, can be a mountain of a burden on someone else. Hannah Baker made us cry, and her story broke our hearts. So here are 13 quotes from ‘13 Reasons Why’ that broke our hearts like no one else could and made us rethink everything we said.
“You can hear rumors. But you can’t know them.”
“When you hold people up for ridicule, you have to take responsibility when other people act on it.”
“Here’s a tip. If you touch a girl, even as joke, and she pushes you off: Leave. Her. Alone. Don’t touch her anywhere. Just stop.”
“You can’t rewrite the past.”
“People grow apart, and sometimes, there’s nothing anyone can do about it.”
“If you hear a song that makes you cry and you don’t want to cry anymore, you don’t listen to that song anymore. But you can’t get away from yourself. You can’t decide not to see yourself anymore. You can’t decide to turn off the noise in your head.”
“When you try rescuing someone and discover they can’t be reached, why would you ever throw that back in their face?”
“Unlike old age or cancer, no one anticipates a suicide.”
“Some of you cared. None of you cared enough.”
“Things get better, or worse, depending on your point of view.”
“You don’t know what goes on in anyone’s life but your own. And when you mess with one part of a person’s life, you’re not messing with just that part. Unfortunately, you can’t be that precise and selective. When you mess with one part of a person’s life, you’re messing with their entire life. Everything affects everything.”
“Even though someone appears to shrug off a sideways comment or to not be affected by a rumor, it’s impossible to know everything else going on in that person’s life, and how we might be adding to his or her pain. People do have an impact on the lives of others; that’s undeniable.”
“I guess that’s the point of it all: No one knows for certain how much impact they have on the lives of other people. Oftentimes, we have no clue. Yet we push it just the same.”
Now, all we know is that in the end, everything matters.
