You forget all of it anyway. First, you forget everything you learned-the dates of the Hay-Herran Treaty and Pythagorean Theorem. You especially forget everything you didn’t really learn, but just memorized the night before. You forget the names of all but one or two of your teachers, and eventually you’ll forget those, too. You forget [...]

“It happens to everyone as they grow up.  You find out who you are and what you want, and then you realize that people you’ve known forever don’t  see things the way you do. So you keep the wonderful memories, but find yourself moving on.” – Nicholas Sparks

"Growing up is never easy. You hold on to things that were. You wonder what's to come. But that night, I think we knew it was time to let go of what had been and look ahead to what would be. Other days, now days, days to come. The thing is, we didn't have to hate each other for getting older. We just had to forgive ourselves for growing up. " - The Wonder Years

“Dear Edward, I’ve gone back and forth the last few days trying to decide whether or not I should even write this. In the end, I realized I would regret it if I didn’t, so here it goes. I know the last time we saw each other, we weren’t exactly hitting the sweetest notes-certain wasn’t [...]

“‘I would never hurt your feelings on purpose. You’re my best friend. I don’t think anyone except my family has ever known me as well as you.'” – Best Friends by Martha Moody

“Well that’s life, I thought. It ends. And that’s friendship: every friendship has its wobbly moments. Live with it, I told myself. Get used to it. I remembered Sally years before in the car driving west, swirling her hand in that chaotic gesture, saying from now on the deaths would be easier. And I had [...]

"I don't get the chance to say it anymore. But I still feel it. You're my best friend. You always were." - Dawson's Creek

"It's funny how the first time we were at this place, something between us was beginning.....but it breaks my heart to know that we are at this same place and that something between us is now ending."

"We've all grown up, and there's no denying that, but it's tough to tell if in that growing up, we've simply grown apart."

"As I look back on all that's happened--growing up, growing together, changing you, changing me...there were times when we dreamed together, when we laughed and cried together. As I look back on those days, I realize how much I truly miss you and how much I truly love you. The past may be gone forever...and whatever the future holds, our todays make the memories of tomorrow. So, my lifetime friend, it is with all my heart that I send you my love, hoping that you'll always carry my smile with you, for all we have meant to each other and for whatever the future may hold." - C.L. Purdy

"I'll never find another friend to take the place of you. No one will ever touch my world exactly like you do. No one who's quite so thoughtful, no one I cherish so. No one will mean so much to me, I just wanted you to know."

"Here's to you, my best friend. Just wanna say that I miss having you around." - The Ataris

"remember the times we watched 'karate kid' and memorized every line?" - The Ataris, "Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, B, A, Start"

"Through all the lies and sad goodbyes. The things we hide, the tears we cried. Through odds and ends, we've been best friends. The times passed, the memories will last. Always remember, we'll be friends forever."

"Don't be dismayed at goodbyes. A farewell is necessary before you can meet again. And meeting again, after moments of lifetimes, is certain for those who are friends." - Richard Bach, Illusions

"We met as total strangers and ended as lifetime friends, we shared a season of our lives, but every season has to end."

"I miss you when something really good happens, because you're the one I want to share it with. I miss you when something is troubling me, because you're the one who understands me so well. I miss you when I laugh and cry, because I know that you are the one that makes my laughter grow, and me tears disappear. I miss you all the time, but I miss you the most when I lay awake at night, and think of all the wonderful times that we spent with each other for those were some of the best and most memorable times of my life. And you were my best friend."

"How lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard." - Annie

"The last year of my life has been like this wide-awake nightmare of conflicting emotions. But no matter how bad it got, one thing kept me going. Us. Our bond, our connection, whatever you want to call it. It made me feel like I wasn't alone, like I was part of something special. So I'm not whining about being friends or not being friends. It's just that...for the first time in my life... I'm not feeling that connection anymore. And it scares me." - Dawson's Creek

"We used to be so close but now we can be standing right beside each other and it feels like we're a million miles apart." - Meggan Riley
