"Why 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."

More hellos is not the solution. Given that someone always leaves, more hellos will only increase the number of good-byes. In life you either believe everything has a beginning and an end or not. Given infinite time they should balance each other. If we use other words like ciao or aloha we can make it ambiguous whether we are coming or going. But then it becomes a counting problem, assuming a meeting followed by a parting, even numbers of ciao's and your back where you started. If we use words like arrivederci or its English meaning 'till we meet again' maybe we've found a loophole, or at least some future hope for a hello, ciao, or aloha. So maybe you need more arrivederci's.

Then we have the Beatles song 'Hello Goodbye' - some interesting comments.

Interesting post, sorry my comment is so long.

hmm how about leaving before someone else does :p, solving both problems at one go- you will say hello to more people that way and you will say good-bye first

"I have to remind myself that some birds aren't meant to be caged. Their feathers are just too bright. And when they fly away, the part of you that knows it was a sin to lock them up DOES rejoice. Still, the place you live in is that much more drab and empty that they're gone"

Not all hellos are welcome nor all good-byes are actually meant... I feel these are always balanced :)

More quotes on goodbyes. A quote mashup on someone's blog I found while googling.
