Don't be dismayed at goodbyes. A farewell is necessary before you can meet again. And meeting again, after moments or lifetimes, is certain for those
who are friends.
Man's feelings are always purest and most glowing in the hour of meeting and of farewell.
--Jean Paul Richter
Parting is all we know of heaven and all we need to know of hell.
Why can't we get all the people together in the world that we really like and then just stay together? I guess that wouldn't work. Someone would leave.
Someone always leaves. Then we would have to say good-bye. I hate good-byes. I know what I need. I need more hellos.
--Charles M. Schulz
Don't cry because it's over. Smile because it happened.
Only in the agony of parting do we look into the depths of love.
Why does it take a minute to say hello and forever to say goodbye?
The best things said come last. People will talk for hours saying nothing much and then linger at the door with words that come with a rush from the
You and I will meet again,
When we're least expecting it,
One day in some far off place,
I will recognize your face,
I won't say goodbye my friend,
For you and I will meet again.
The bitter word which closed all, earthly friendships, and finished every feast of love -- farewell.
We only part to meet again.
Absence from whom we love is worse than death, and frustrates hope severer than despair.
To die and part is a less evil; but to part and live, there, there is the torment.
Love is missing someone whenever you're apart, but somehow feeling warm inside because you're close in heart.
Where is the good in goodbye?
--The Music Man
Promise me you'll never forget me because if I thought you would I'd never leave.
Every parting is a form of death, as every reunion is a type of heaven.
The return makes one love the farewell.
--Alfred De Musset
Great is the art of beginning, but greater is the art of ending.
I wanted a perfect ending. Now I've learned, the hard way, that some poems don't rhyme, and some stories don't have a clear beginning, middle, and end.
Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what's going to happen next.
Never part without loving words to think of during your absence. It may be that you will not meet again in this life.
--Jean Paul Richter
