A Quote by Margaret Mitchell on farewells and good

Rhett Butler's farewell to Scarlett O'Hara, I was never one to patiently pick up broken fragments and glue them together again and tell myself that the mended whole was as good as new. What is broken is broken - and I'd rather remember it as it was at its best. . . .

Margaret Mitchell (1900 - 1949)

A Quote by Ludwig van Beethoven on angels, faith, farewells, fate, heart, immortality, learning, life, and love

My angel, my all, my very self . . . my thoughts go out to you, my Immortal Beloved, now and then joyfully, then sadly, waiting to learn whether or not fate will hear us - I can live only wholly with you or not at all . . . Be calm - love me - today - yesterday - what tearful longings for you - you - you - my life - my all - farewell. Oh continue to love - never misjudge the most faithful heart of your beloved. Ever thine. Ever mine. Ever ours.

Ludwig van Beethoven (1770 - 1827)

A Quote by Alfred, Lord TENNYSON on clarity, darkness, farewells, home, hope, and time

Sunset and evening star, And one clear call for me! And may there be no moaning of the bar, When I put out to sea, But such a tide as moving seems asleep, To full for sound and foam, When that which drew from out the boundless deep Turns again home. Twilight and evening bell, And after that the dark! And may there be no sadness of farewell, When I embark; For though from out our bourne of Time and Place The flood may bear me far, I hope to see my Pilot face to face When I have crossed the bar.

Lord Alfred Tennyson (1809 - 1892)

A Quote by LaVell Edwards on belief, dreams, farewells, play, retirement, seasons, and time

Speaking as he unintentionally launched his farewell tour by announcing that the 2000 season would be his last before retirement: Honestly, I had never, ever in my wildest dreams believed I would ever do this. All I wanted to do was to play it out and when it was time to go, hang it up, take off and sail into the sunset somewhere.

A Quote by L. Tom Perry on blessings, children, family, farewells, love, sharing, support, and traditions

Build traditions in your families that will bring you together, for they can demonstrate your devotion, love, and support for one another. . . These events would include blessings of children, baptisms, other priesthood ordinances, graduations, missionary farewells, homecomings, and, of course, marriages. Sharing these occasions as a family will help us build a foundation established upon a rock.
