Welcome to our final Tuesday's Takeaways post of the semester!
Appropriately, our Top Quotes fit the theme of goodbyes.
"You are what makes me real
And as much as
We need to say
I just Can’t
-Diana Harman, Goodbye My Lonely
"Our lives equally go by so fast
And yet I’ll never be able to reach you again.
Here lies my unspoken goodbye
-Alyna Valderrama, Final Words
"I chased after him
But he had already said goodbye
I clung to him
But he was already leaving"
-Tess Stofko, Coy or Koi
"Consider this a goodbye.
My last words to you.
The final chapter in our journey together."
-Tonsor Mal, Be Patient
"My heart is shattered and I think of you;
What I wouldn’t give to see you one last time.
There was no chance to say goodbye."
-Sara Ahisar, A Chance To Say Goodbye
"And when we say goodbye
your taste lingers,
on our lips
in our noses
and stains the lines of our hands"
-Joshua Avin, My Dad and Modest Mouse
"Looking into each other’s eyes for the last time beneath the train tracks lies every I love you ever uttered"
-Jerry Salem, A Not So Swift Love Story
"So now I’m saying goodbye. I’m finishing the novel of you and turning your final pages. Onto a new book, a new genre. Back on the shelf, with the rest of the tales as old as time. But this book, your story— maybe I’d even call it our story, was a good one."
-Emily Shrem, Goodbye For Now
"Excuse me, it is time to say your final goodbyes."
-Gina Rivieccio, The Invasion
'Goodbye' stems from the phrase 'god be with ye' contracted to 'godbwye' and eventually transformed into 'goodbye'.
