Parting Quotations

Good night, good night! Parting is such sweet sorrow, that I shall say good night till it be morrow.
William Shakespeare

The pain of parting is nothing to the joy of meeting again.
Charles Dickens

Every parting is a form of death, as every reunion is a type of heaven.
Tryon Edwards

Every parting gives a foretaste of death, every reunion a hint of the resurrection.
Arthur Schopenhauer

Sometimes we look for those thunderous things to happen in our life for our lives to change or go in the other direction. We seek the miracle. We seek the parting of the seas, the moving of the mountains. But no, it's a quiet thing. At least for me it was.
Ben Vereen
