Nate Sr.: You hang on to your pain like it means something. Like it's worth something. Well, let me tell you - it's not worth shit. Let it go! Infinite possibilities, and all he can do is whine.

David: Well, what am I supposed to do?

Nate Sr.: What do you think? You can do anything you lucky bastard - you're alive! What's a little pain compared to that?

David: It can't be that simple.

Nate Sr.: What if it is?

This is one of my favorite lines from the show, and one that - although I didnt hear it first on this show - has profoundly changed my life. Substitute 'your emotions' or 'your feelings' for the word pain, and the ride begins all over again. Good stuff. I could talk about that all day.
