It is never easy to say goodbye. Nobody likes goodbyes. They leave a tinge of sadness. They bring tears of nostalgia in your eyes. They leave behind a trail of broken hearts.

Saying goodbyes are not easy. Words seem inadequate and meaningless. Often, you feel an overwhelming surge of emotions.

If you have to bid adieu to your family or loved ones, you can bid goodbye with the help of these quotes. Use these goodbye quotes in greeting cards, gifts, or text messages. If you are not comfortable with saying goodbye, you can talk about the good times you shared, and wish your loved ones a bright future.

"I've never forgotten him. Dare I say I miss him? I do. I miss him. I still see him in my dreams. They are nightmares mostly, but nightmares tinged with love. Such is the strangeness of the human heart. I still cannot understand how he could abandon me so unceremoniously, without any sort of goodbye, without looking back even once. The pain is like an axe that chops my heart. "
