When I didn't feel lost, I felt free.

about the island}

Oliver: Roy, you're dangerous. I thought I was helping you control it.
Roy: You are. I can't look at a bowl of water without slapping it.

Oliver: This guy gets more airtime on the Kardashians.
Thea: Five years on an island and you still know who they are.

Oliver, sometimes the greatest act of love is no action at all. It's her life. It's her choice.

Malcolm

Oliver: Mom, I know a little something about sacrificing myself for the good of this city. It's what you need to do now.
Moira: I know.
Oliver Good.
Moira: Oliver. I know. I know. I've known since last year, I suppose. The night of the undertaking everything became so clear. It's pretty much the night I stopped sleeping.
Oliver: Before you say anything else...
Moira: There's nothing else to say. Nothing I need to say. Except I could not be more proud.

Maybe you should start acting like my mother so I don't have to act like yours.

Thea [to Moira]

Oliver: Are you OK?
Felicity: I guess. Old lovers have a way of opening old wounds. Lovers. Sounds creepy no matter how you say it.
Oliver: Felicity, I want you to know that whatever experiences you had to go through, I'm glad that you did to shape the person that you are today. And you know how I feel about her.

You can't beat me, Oliver. Yes, you're younger and you're faster, yet you always come up short against me. Wanna know why? Because you don't know, in your heart, what you're fighting for. What you're willing to sacrifice. And I do.

Malcolm

Oliver: John, I don't want to die down here.
Diggle: So don't, Oliver.

Felicity: Guess what I majored in. Hint - not the secretarial arts!
Oliver: Felicity! If I'm going to be Oliver Queen, CEO, the I cannot very well travel down 18 floors every time you and I need to discuss how we spend out nights.
Felicity: And I love spending the night with you...three...two...one. I worked very hard to get where I am and it wasn't so I could fetch you coffee!
Diggle: Well, it could be worse. My secret identity is his black driver.

Well, I told a guy the truth and he got struck by lightening. To be fair, it probably won't happen again. Statistically.

Felicity

Oliver: Don't ask me to say I don't love you.
Felicity: I told you as soon as I talked it would be over.

Arrow Quotes

There are people in this world who deal only in extremes. It's naive to think that anything less than extreme measures will stop them.

Amanda

You know Oliver, somebody once told me that secrets have weight. The more you keep, the harder it is to keep moving.

Diggle
