Don't be dismayed at goodbyes. A farewell is necessary before you can meet again. And meeting again, after moments or lifetime, is certain for those who are friends. ~Richard Bach
We only part to meet again. ~John Gay
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. ~Emily Dickinson, "Parting"
Why does it take a minute to say hello and forever to say goodbye? ~Author Unknown
Gone - flitted away,
Taken the stars from the night and the sun
From the day!
Gone, and a cloud in my heart.
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
Nothing makes the earth seem so spacious as to have friends at a distance; they make the latitudes and longitudes. ~Henry David Thoreau
How lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard. ~Carol Sobieski and Thomas Meehan, Annie
Goodbyes are not forever.
Goodbyes are not the end.
They simply mean I'll miss you
Until we meet again!
The world is round and the place which may seem like the end may also be the beginning. ~Ivy Baker Priest
Absence from whom we love is worse than death, and frustrates hope severer than despair. ~William Cowper
Excuse me, then! you know my heart;
But dearest friends, alas! must part.
To die and part is a less evil; but to part and live, there, there is the torment. ~George Lansdowne
May the road rise up to meet you, may the wind be ever at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face and the rain fall softly on your fields. And until we meet again, may God hold you in the hollow of his hand. ~Irish Blessing
Happy trails to you, until we meet again.
Some trails are happy ones,
Others are blue.
It's the way you ride the trail that counts,
Here's a happy one for you.
No distance of place or lapse of time can lessen the friendship of those who are thoroughly persuaded of each other's worth. ~Robert Southey
