"We assume the really serious changes in our life happen slowly, over time, but it's not true. The big stuff happens in an instant. Becoming and adult, becoming a parent, becoming a doctor. One minute you're not and the next you are. Ask any doctor if they can point to the one moment they became a physician. It usually isn't med school graduation, whatever it is nobody forgets it. Sometimes you don't even know anythings changed. You think you're still you and your life is still your life but you wake up one day and look around and you don't recognize anything. Not anything at all."
"You never forget the moment you become a doctor. A switch flips, suddenly you're not playing dress up anymore. You own the white coat. What you may not notice is the moment that being a doctor changes you."
- Meredith Grey
