Although "Friday Night Lights" has been off the air for two years, Tami Taylor and her words of wisdom remain a TV favorite.
She was a guidance counselor, a mother and a wife. Although her advice wasn't always gentle, it was helpful and true. And more often than not, it was exactly what what the recipient of her words (and we) needed to hear.
"There's no weakness in forgiveness."
"Well, you’re gonna win or you’re gonna lose. Either way the sun’s still gonna come up tomorrow morning."
"I think you just keep doing what you're doing, Coach. Take it one day at a time."
"There's not a person in the world that could do this except for you. This is what you do. I've seen you do it with my own eyes. I believe in you. I believe in you with every cell of my being."
"The big deal is, that it's part of my job to make sure that you don't grow up stupid. It's bad for the world."
"You are at the beginning of your life. A lot of these football heroes around here, they're not gonna get much farther than this ... And I'm telling you right now, women are gonna flock to you. I know it's hard to believe, but that's how it's gonna work. You're a good person and this is just the beginning."
"I think it's good you're questioning your faith, I just want you to have faith … something that you can hold on to, when I can't hold on to you."
"You never know what’s going on with somebody, sweetie. Can’t take it personally."
"I would tell her to think about her life. Think about what's important to her and what she wants. And I would support every decision she made."
“No matter what happens, no matter where you go, no matter what you do, I’m always gonna be behind you. Always and always and always”
