2 Why does it take a minute to say hello and forever to say goodbye?

when I first heard this I cried. my cousin took forever to say goodbye. unfortunately, he's dead. :(

Love it and in fact shared it on Facebook when I left my family and friends and studied overseas. So far it has been one of my favourite quotes.


If by forever to say goodbye, you are referring to losing a loved one, then that would truly take forever. - Oliveleaf

4 Don't be dismayed at good-byes. A farewell is necessary before we can meet again and meeting again, after moments or a lifetime, is certain for those who are friends.

There will always be people you love and miss, and you will always be that person for someone else. You'll want to hold on forever and never let go. But the thing is, you can't say hello again if you haven't said goodbye.

I wanna all my friends to hang around me even after a farewell goobye

I'm writing a letter for a graduating friend I find this very true and promising. Yes indeed, true friends never say goodbye.

5 True goodbyes are the ones never said or explained.

Says a lot without saying a lot.

Sad, but also true and therefor beautiful. It's sad how I've had my goodbyes without actually saying it

Warning: sad story about goodbyes like these.
I have always been a shy, secretive and an awkward person. I had this huge crush on this boy named Jake in the 5th grade but I was determined not to show it. I knew I was weird. He was popular, cute and mysterious. But when we started texting out of the blue, I got to meet a side of him that no one knows. And he met a side of me that no one knows. He looked at me differently than any other girl and I knew he had feelings for me. But I was scared. I was weird, shy and almost the opposite of him so I didn't show any affection. Until the 9th grade we stayed in contact until we just started falling apart. Even though we didn't talk anymore, I still had immensely strong feelings for him. And when we occasionally bumped into each other in the halls, I could tell he wasn't over me either.
Randomly in the middle of my junior year, he left. Without a warning he moved. I had to hear it from one of his friends during class. It was after the ...more

6 Don't cry because it's over. Smile because it happened.

You can hold onto the memories of what's good and let a new day come, because the good is what matters after all. - PositronWildhawk

I was reunited with the "LOVE OF MY LIFE" We are both married (to others). We had not seen each other in 50 years. We may never see each other again. I will not cry, I am simply smiling with each thought of him and the coversation we had.

I like this one because I had to say goodbye

What a beautiful sentiment. - Britgirl

7 A good-bye is never painful unless you're never going to say hello again.

Its true... Its is very hard to accept the reality that you will never see or hear that person your entire life. You can only remember him and mesmerized the days spent with that person... So sad but it is reality we have to live with those memories

ya its true its painful to know that I can't even say goodbye to a friend... for she'z dead! I lv this quote..

It touches my heart! I cried after I read as it is reminding me that I wouldn't be able to see someone beloved to me again ever after! Sigh... But life still need to go on... That is LIFE!

Yep, I agree - Righteous

8 True friends don't say good-bye, they just take extended leaves of absences from each other.

I have just said goodbye to a true and gentle friend. My heart is sore at his leaving because we are now touching sixty and have known each other all our lives. He is going to the far side of the world and I don't know if we shall ever meet again. I wish I could have said the quote above as I hope it is true.

I like that quotes..
it is so beautiful...

So hard to lose a real friend...

Yes... True friendship is forever.. - Oliveleaf

9 I have never found any 'good' in goodbye.

I really hate to heard someone saying GOODBYE... What I want is to say this word always. 'SEE YOU'.

Very simple and speaks for itself, doesn't need a lengthy explanation. There is just hardly anything GOOD about saying goodbye.

An amazing quote, obviously deeply thought about. It's so true though, what good has anyone got in saying goodbye. I know it's never done me any good.

It's wishing farewell, so maybe that's what makes it good. ~ - Oliveleaf

10 How lucky I am to have known someone who was so hard to say goodbye to.

This is quite my favourite of all the goodbyes, it is so bitter sweet

This hits pretty close to home, a friend of mine was killed a few weeks back and it was the hardest thing I've ever gone through, and I found a unique 'comfort' in this.

It really touched my heart

Bellesimo. heart touching

11 Let me make this easier than saying goodbye: let me tell you hello in advance for the next time I get to see you.

I just thought of this and liked it!

Fantastic! I found it so relevant.

This is the best quote in goodbyes!

12 Every ending has a new beginning.

Unless you come to end there is no beginning, so this means something new and interesting but no forgeting the past.

This saying covers all you want to say when a friend leaves.

Because there is no new starting until there is old ending

Sometime things comes to an end so that you can move to a higer level.

15 Goodbye may seem forever. Farewell is like the end, but in my heart is the memory and there you will always be.

Goodbye may seem forever. Farewell is like the end, but in my heart is the memory and you will be there with the rest

Had tears while reading this... As it was my farewell today

For people who don't know, this quote comes from the greatest movie of all time, The Fox and the Hound. It's when Widow Tweed has to let Tod go to protect him. It's such a sad scene but it's sad in a beautiful way!

This saying has always held so much love in it for me. And makes me cry each time I hear it. Even on The Fox And The Hound.

16 Goodbyes breed a sort of distaste for whomever you say goodbye to; this hurts, you feel, this must not happen again.

If you never fell how good bye really means and have taste the back of your tongue, you're not ready to let that person go.

Good byes are the words which are adamant to come out not only from the tongue but from in the poor heart..

17 Never say goodbye because you will never know when you are going to lose them.

I cried after reading this. I love everyone around me

If you love everyone around you, does that include me? I wanna feel loved... :-) But seriously, really strong quote... Love it...
