could you tell me some other way to say " good night",please. I have a foreign friend,and i only say "have nice dream" when we make farewell. It's so monotonous. Thank you so much.
Usually, we just say goodbye. Here are some expressions in, but they may be better in writingDon't be dismayed at goodbyes. A farewell is necessary before you can meet again. And meeting again, after moments or lifetime, is certain for those who are friends. ~Richard BachWe only part to meet again. ~John GayMan's feelings are always purest and most glowing in the hour of meeting and of farewell. ~Jean Paul RichterParting is all we know of heaven and all we need to know of hell. ~Emily Dickinson, "Parting"Why does it take a minute to say hello and forever to say goodbye? ~Author UnknownGone - flitted away,Taken the stars from the night and the sunFrom the day!Gone, and a cloud in my heart.~Alfred TennysonWhy can't we get all the people together in the world that we really like and then just stay together? I guess that wouldn't work. Someone would leave. Someone always leaves. Then we would have to say good-bye. I hate good-byes. I know what I need. I need more hellos. ~Charles M. SchulzNothing makes the earth seem so spacious as to have friends at a distance; they make the latitudes and longitudes. ~Henry David ThoreauHow lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard. ~Carol Sobieski and Thomas Meehan, AnnieGoodbyes are not forever.Goodbyes are not the end.They simply mean I'll miss youUntil we meet again!~Author UnknownThe world is round and the place which may seem like the end may also be the beginning. ~Ivy Baker PriestAbsence from whom we love is worse than death, and frustrates hope severer than despair. ~William CowperExcuse me, then! you know my heart;But dearest friends, alas! must part.~John GayTo die and part is a less evil; but to part and live, there, there is the torment. ~George LansdowneMay the road rise up to meet you, may the wind be ever at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face and the rain fall softly on your fields. And until we meet again, may God hold you in the hollow of his hand. ~Irish BlessingHappy trails to you, until we meet again.Some trails are happy ones,Others are blue.It's the way you ride the trail that counts,Here's a happy one for you.~Dale EvansNo distance of place or lapse of time can lessen the friendship of those who are thoroughly persuaded of each other's worth. ~Robert SoutheyCan miles truly separate you from friends.... If you want to be with someone you love, aren't you already there? ~Richard BachBe well, do good work, and keep in touch. ~Garrison KeillorWhat shall I do with all the days and hoursThat must be counted ere I see thy face?How shall I charm the interval that lowersBetween this time and that sweet time of grace?~Frances Anne KembleNot to understand a treasure's worth till time has stole away the slighted good, is cause of half the poverty we feel, and makes the world the wilderness it is. ~William CowperShe went her unremembering way,She went and left in meThe pang of all the partings gone,And partings yet to be.~Francis ThompsonOnly in the agony of parting do we look into the depths of love. ~George EliotLove is missing someone whenever you're apart, but somehow feeling warm inside because you're close in heart. ~Kay KnudsenThe reason it hurts so much to separate is because our souls are connected. ~Nicholas Sparks, The NotebookYou and I will meet againWhen we're least expecting itOne day in some far off placeI will recognize your faceI won't say goodbye my friendFor you and I will meet again~Tom PettyFarewell! God knows when we shall meet again. ~William ShakespeareIn the hope to meetShortly again, and make our absence sweet.~Ben JonsonSome people come into our lives and quickly go. Some stay for a while, leave footprints on our hearts, and we are never, ever the same. ~Flavia Weedn, Forever, © Flavia.comSo sweetly she bade me adieu,I thought that she bade me return.~William ShenstoneBut fate ordains that dearest friends must part. ~Edward YoungLove reckons hours for months, and days for years; and every little absence is an age. ~John DrydenWhere is the good in goodbye? ~Meredith Willson, The Music Man (Thanks, Thomas) Distance of time and place generally cure what they seem to aggravate; and taking leave of our friends resembles taking leave of the world, of which it has been said, that it is not death, but dying, which is terrible. ~Henry FieldingAs the presence of those we love is as a double life, so absence, in its anxious longing and sense of vacancy, is as a foretaste of death. ~Anna Brownell JamesonPromise me you'll never forget me because if I thought you would I'd never leave. ~A.A. MilneAs contraries are known by contraries, so is the delight of presence best known by the torments of absence. ~AlcibiadesMay you always have work for your hands to do.May your pockets hold always a coin or two.May the sun shine bright on your windowpane.May the rainbow be certain to follow each rain.May the hand of a friend always be near you.And may God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.~Irish BlessingGood-byes breed a sort of distaste for whomever you say good-bye to; this hurts, you feel, this must not happen again. ~Elizabeth BowenMay the sun shine, all day long,everything go right, and nothing wrong.May those you love bring love back to you,and may all the wishes you wish come true!~Irish BlessingMay you always have walls for the winds,a roof for the rain, tea beside the fire,laughter to cheer you, those you love near you,and all your heart might desire.~Irish BlessingAbsence diminishes little passions and increases great ones, as the wind extinguishes candles and fans a fire. ~Francois Duc de la Rochefoucauld, translated from FrenchEvery parting is a form of death, as every reunion is a type of heaven. ~Tryon EdwardsEver has it been that love knows not its own depth until the hour of separation. ~Kahlil GibranFarewell, my sister, fare thee well.The elements be kind to thee, and makeThy spirits all of comfort: fare thee well.~William ShakespeareA man never knows how to say goodbye; a woman never knows when to say it. ~Helen RowlandThe return makes one love the farewell. ~Alfred De MussetYou're searching...For things that don't exist; I mean beginnings.Ends and beginnings - there are no such things.There are only middles.~Robert Frost, Mountain Interval, "In the Home Stretch"Fare thee well! and if for ever,Still for ever, fare thee well.~Lord ByronMay you have warm words on a cool evening, a full moon on a dark night, and a smooth road all the way to your door. ~Irish ToastIf I had a single flower for every time I think about you, I could walk forever in my garden. ~Attributed to Claudia GhandiYe flowers that drop, forsaken by the spring,Ye birds that, left by summer, cease to sing,Ye trees that fade, when Autumn heats remove,Say, is not absence death to those who love?~Alexander PopeThe best things said come last. People will talk for hours saying nothing much and then linger at the door with words that come with a rush from the heart. ~Alan AldaMay flowers always line your path and sunshine light your day.May songbirds serenade you every step along the way.May a rainbow run beside you in a sky that's always blue.And may happiness fill your heart each day your whole life through.~Irish BlessingThat bitter word, which closed all earthly friendships and finished every feast of love farewell! ~Robert PollokOne kind kiss before we part,Drop a tear, and bid adieu;Though we sever, my fond heartTill we meet shall pant for you.~Robert DodsleyThe joy of meeting pays the pangs of absence; else who could bear it? ~Nicholas RoweAdieu! I have too grieved a heart to take a tedious leave. ~William ShakespeareA sunbeam to warm you,A moonbeam to charm you,A sheltering angel, so nothing can harm you.~Irish BlessingWhere'er I roam, whatever realms to see,My heart untravelled, fondly turns to thee;Still to my brother turns, with ceaseless pain,And drags at each remove a lengthening chain.~Oliver Goldsmith, The TravellerIf I leave here tomorrow, will you still remember me? ~Allen Collins and Ronnie Van Zant, "Free Bird," One More From the Road, 1973, performed by Lynyrd SkynyrdGreat is the art of beginning, but greater is the art of ending. ~Lazurus LongMay brooks and trees and singing hillsJoin in the chorus too,And every gentle wind that blowsSend happiness to you.~Irish BlessingI 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. ~Gilda RadnerSweet is the memory of distant friends! Like the mellow rays of the departing sun, it falls tenderly, yet sadly, on the heart. ~Washington IrvingFarewell! a word that must be, and hath been -A sound which makes us linger; - yet - farewell!~Lord ByronGoodbye, goodbye, I hate the word. Solitude has long since turned brown and withered, sitting bitter in my mouth and heavy in my veins. ~R.M. GrenonMissing someone gets easier every day because even though it's one day further from the last time you saw each other, it's one day closer to the next time you will. ~Author UnknownFarewell!For in that word - that fatal word - howe'erWe promise - hope - believe - there breathes despair.~Lord ByronLet's not unman each other - part at once;All farewells should be sudden, when forever,Else they make an eternity of moments,And clog the last sad sands of life with tears.~Lord ByronA goodbye isn't painful unless you're never going to say hello again. ~Author UnknownA chord, stronger or weaker, is snapped asunder in every parting, and time's busy fingers are not practiced in re-splicing broken ties. Meet again you may; will it be in the same way? With the same sympathies? With the same sentiments? Will the souls, hurrying on in diverse paths, unite once more, as if the interval had been a dream? Rarely, rarely! ~Edward George Earle Bulwer-LyttonNever part without loving words to think of during your absence. It may be that you will not meet again in this life. ~Jean Paul RichterDon't cry because it's over. Smile because it happened. ~Theodor Seuss Geisel, attributed
Thank you so much. These statements are very useful for me. Nobody likes to say goodbye,but no meeting doesn't have the end,but I must say something to express there is always a special place to miss my friends. And you,my teacher gave me some ways to tell that. Thank you again.
i am a spammer.kaka
Dear Mr Hong Anh, I have just known your website by chance. For me, this is a better website for learning English in comparison with the others. I find it quite easy to catch up. From now on, I will share this wonderful "exploration" with my friends who love learning English as well as me.Just like you, i wanna become a good English teacher in the near future. I really hope that we who are learning English may have chance to contact you whenever we face difficulties while learning. Finally,from bottom of my heart, I would love to say thanks you so much for your great thought of creating a very nice learning way like this to help English learners like me. Your faithfully,Hoang Long
