“My past made me who I am today. I can’t just pretend it never happened. But the biggest lesson I learnt from that, is that I can be an example for others who are still struggling! There’s always hope and help for everyone. I think it’s my responsibility to do that, to help. I always refer to this as the “moment of clarity”. It’s hard to explain what really happened, but it was a once in a lifetime kind of moment. I had reached my lowest point and I just knew things had to change quickly because there was just no other way, you know.”

May your soul rest in peace, Cory Monteith.

“And he was just always open and nice and just..just such a kind-hearted person. You know when you meet someone that’s just so nice and lovable that you’re just like I—you just want to be around them; you just need to be around them. And he was one of those people.” Alex Newell

…you know, we also were laughing and reminiscing while we were there. Watching old videos of Cory dancing, and our first trip to New York on a private plane and how goofy we were, like it was also times of laughter… - Amber Riley about filming ‘The Quarterback

Cory Monteith & chicken

He did not die. He took the midnight train going anywhere.

❝ Don’t use the last chapter to judge someone’s life […], because his life is full of beautiful stories and triumphs and failures and successes that it doesn’t matter about his problems, it matters about the lives that he’s changed and it matters that he was genuine. ❞

— Richard Monteith (Cory’s cousin)
