Goodbye Quotes

*We picked up our caps and gowns and all that senior stuff that's supposed to help us remember the good 'ole days, but some of the things that you remember most can't be put on paper. That day finally came, and you sat there with all of the friends that you have made over the years, you looked at your family and deep down you knew that this was a once in a lifetime moment. It was the last time in your life that these people would be together in one place. Yeah there would be reunions, but there was always that chance that one person couldn't make it there. You looked back on your time with these people and realized that it was short lived and that it didn't seem as if there was for everything you wanted to accomplish, sports, activities, SAT, ACT, and all that good stuff. They called your name, your tassle got turned, and you got a piece of paper that said you were smart. Then you said good-bye, maybe to your town, and that school and your friends. You know that you can go back to visit, but there will be strangers in the halls and it's not the same. It's different, and you're different. But it's not the end. In fact, everything is just the beginning*

*I can tell by your tears that you will remember it all*

*Life wouldn't be the same without you and all the memories you have givin me*

*Somehow, the conversation meantioned your name. And someone asked if I knew you. Looking away I had a thought of all the times we had together, sharing laughter, tears, jokes and tons more...and then, without explanation you were gone. I looked to where they were waiting for an answer and then said softly, 'once I thought I did'*

*All I want is for you to know me again, for me to be in your life. And, even if it can't happen right now, I would like to know that you hear my plea. I would like to know that I am not blocked from your memory*

*It hasn't sunk in yet. I haven't totally realized that he's pushed me out of his heart forever. I'm not sure I want it to hit me fully yet because I know that when it does, I will feel pain like nothing I have ever felt before*

*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. Delicious amiguity.*
~Gilda Radner

*After a while you learn the subtle difference betweem holding a hand and chaining a soul. You learn that kisses aren't contracts and presents aren't promises. You learn that loving doesn't mean leaning and company doesn't always mean security, and you learn that even sunshine burns if you get too much. After a while you learn to build all your dreams on today because tomorrows ground is to uncertain for dreams, and futures have a way of falling down in mid-flight. After a while you learn to accept your defeats with your head held with the grace of a woman and not the grief of a child. After a while you learn to plant your own garden and decorate your own soul instead of waiting for someone else to bring you flowers. And you learn that you really are strong, that you really do have self worth, and you can endure, and you learn and learn, with every "goodbye" you learn*

*Heartbreak happens to the best of us, we can't hide from it and we can't deny it so just accept it, no matter how hard it is and no matter how much it hurts*

But now when we said this good-bye I have this feelin that I will never see u again. And that really hurts becuz I know that we are meant to lead our own seperate lives. and I honestly dont wanna cross your path in the future cuz I dont want all these feelings to come back and have to try to get over all over again.*

*As I look back on all that's happened -- growing up, growing together, changing you, changing me -- there were times when we dreamed together, when we laughed and cried together. As I look back on those days, I realize how much I'll truly miss you and how much I truly love you. The past may be gone forever...and what the future holds, our todays make the memories of tomorrow. So, my lifetime friend, it is with all my heart that I send you my love, hoping that you'll always carry my smile with you, for all we have meant to each other and for what the future may hold.*

*Good-bye my friends I loved so dear; I am not dead but sleeping here. I was not yours, but Christís alone; He loved me best, he took me home.*

*The lonliest it gets is when the wind begins to chill and when I stand on top of your old street, the church top brings a stillness to me and I can't think of anything I'd rather do then have my heart broken by you. Could we be saved by inentions and hopes? Cuz I'm not alright, the night seems to swallow me whole and spit me out. Secound guessing, I remember ever since that first day I saw you on the street, I've always wanted you in the worst way. And now I can't compete, and I'm so, and you're so, we're both so f***ed up. Isn't it time we try to get it right? I can't sleep on no more floors and I can't stay up no more nights. I'd like to know what's going on, could you please pick up the phone? I started a million letters to you but I couldn't finish any of them...*

*Someday, when we both reminisce we'll both say, 'There wasn't too much we missed,' and through the tears we'll smile when we recall we haad it all for just a moment*
~St. Elmo's Fire~

*You never realize how much you love someone until they're gon. You never realize that, yes, once their love surrounded you but now, what do you have? Memories. Why does love hurt so much, when it's supposed to be a good thing? Why do we dwell on the past, when the future is what matters? It's something that, yeah, I guess can't be helped but, maybe it's harder for you then it is for someone else. Faint smells of cologne, a song on the radio, a movie, or a single word, these ae things that bring back those memories. But you can't hide from these things, because, they're there and no matter how hard you try to, they'll always be there. Even when you have moved onn to the future, and things don't trigger the memories as much as before, they still do. You can't forget someone you've loved, you may want to, but you can't. Love cannot be forgotten, no matter how hard we try, and how much we think it will ease the pain, it will always be there, forever.*

*Dream as if you will live forever and live as if you will die today*

*You can't always get what you want, but if you try sometimes, you might find you get what you need.*

*If I leave here tomorrow, will you still remember me?*
~Lynyrd Skynyd, Free Bird~

*Yesterday brought the begining, tomorrow brings the end, and somewhere in the middle we became the best of friends*

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