To leave, after all, was not the same as being left.
It's not that I want you to go, it's just that I don't want you to stay.
What you are to do without me I cannot imagine.
George Bernard Shaw
Do you know what your problem is? You can't live with the idea that someone might leave.
It is so hard to leave—until you leave. And then it is the easiest goddamned thing in the world.
I give you this to take with you:Nothing remains as it was. If you know this, you canbegin again, with pure joy in the uprooting.
There ain't no way you can hold onto something that wants to go, you understand? You can only love what you got while you got it.
We leave something of ourselves behind when we leave a place, we stay there, even though we go away. And there are things in us that we can find again only by going back there.
You get use to someone—start to like them, even—and they leave. In the end, everyone leaves.
There are times when the actual experience of leaving something makes you wish desperately that you could stay, and then there are times when the leaving reminds you a hundred times over why exactly you had to leave in the first place.
We all take different paths in life, but no matter where we go, we take a little of each other everyhwere.
I'm guilty of giving people more chances than they deserve but when I'm done, I'm done.
