"Maggie, I love you. I should have said it a long time ago, and it's been true for a long time."

"People you love, they made you who you are. They’re still part of you. If you stop being you, that last bit of them that’s still around inside, who you are it’s gone."

Not much is known about Glenn's family before the apocalypse, and the show implies that he may not be sure they are alive or dead, but he understands loss and the pain that goes with it. Glenn has had a lot of time to think about all of the people that he's watched die, and knows the right things to say when others get too caught up thinking about their own loved ones.

"No, you’re wrong. We’re not supposed to let the world die, and I sure as hell am not gonna let you die."

Where would they be without Glenn's optimism and hope? The world is falling apart a little bit more everyday, and sometimes, the most dangerous partisn't the next shambling herd of zombies, but the other people. Even in the face of all of that, Glenn has a soft heart, and manages to say something kind to a scared, lost girl whois ready to give up.
