* Gruß
* Grüße
Prolly only useful with german speakers, but I use the first one now and then.

Posted by: david on Sep 24, 05 | 11:04 pm

You could use the german expression "Gruss" in an english version. Because the german "Gruss" sounds very much like the english "Bruce", I suggest:
* Gruce

Posted by: Christian on Sep 28, 05 | 1:03 am

I just want to say that this is the most useful page on the 'net for me right now, and I'm thrilled it's here. Thank you so much for making this!

Now, should I add something before I leave? Yeah, I suppose that would only be fair.

* Hope all is well,

Posted by: Jeff on Oct 28, 05 | 10:43 am

* Love, Hugs, and Sloppy Kisses

Posted by: T. S. Elliott on Nov 07, 05 | 8:01 am

* Keep your stick on the ice.

In hockey it is the first thing your taught to do while playing the game.

Red green (Darren McEwen) adoped the phrase and made it his own salutation in 'the red green show'.

Its probably not a very good salutation if you have to explain it, but for people know the meaning/reasoning its great.

Posted by: nick on Nov 11, 05 | 7:17 pm

Steve smith, not darren mcewen. I was mistaken.

Posted by: nick on Nov 11, 05 | 7:20 pm

Red Green! That rules! And yes, Steve Smith plays Red Green.

I think anyone who's even heard of hockey would understand "keep your stick on the ice". I'm going to start using that.

Posted by: Tom on Nov 13, 05 | 8:23 am

Posted by: Jason on Apr 12, 06 | 8:30 pm

I was wondering if anyone knows of anything else other than "Yours, sincerely", "Yours, faithfully", anything "with regards" for formal letters. It doesn't have to be THAT formal, but reasonably polite.

* Always,

Only had to use it once fortunately.

* ci vediamo (see you)

Such a great page! Just what I was looking for! Thanks for keeping it up. Here are some swedish endings since I'm the first swede here (?) :)

*Hejdå (bye)
*Vi ses (see you)
*Puss och kram (kiss and hug)
*Jag älskar dig (I love you)
*Sov gott (sleep tight)
*Dä ä görgött i skogera (it's very nice in the forrests -in a very silly accent)

One in latin:

*Te audire no possum. Musa sapientum fixa est in aure (I can't hear what you're saying. I've got a banana in my ear)

and in english:

*Bye bye custard and pie
*nananananananana... (your name instead of Batman)

Posted by: Muffy on Apr 22, 07 | 10:24 pm

Can we talk about the use of the word ‘Best’ as a closing line in current correspondence? It seems to be the latest trend. But it leaves me annoyed and not eager to try. What the hell does it mean? Best. Best WHAT? Best intentions, Best wishes, Best Buddy, Best Dressed or Best Bowel movement? It’s so utterly cool that it carries no warmth. It’s not about wishing the other person the best of anything but rather an embarrassing attempt by the writer to include themselves in some phantom ‘it’ crowd. It doesn’t even look smart on paper or email. In fact it looks incomplete and as if the writer could not think of anything more intelligent to write. My advice is to return to the old but trusted ‘Sincerely’ until something worthy of its replacement comes along. After all, you are either cool or you are trying to be cool.

Does anyone know what it's called when you use a semi-colon for the salutation and a comma for the closing? There are three other types of puncuations; mixed which is the colon and comma; closed which is comma and comma; open which is you use nothing. There is a fourth which is the semi-colon and comma. I need to know what that is called. Any help on this would be grateful!!!!!

Till Soon
You aren't kidding
No Joke
Till the floor breaks
Bottoms up
Bite Me
Be nice
Thanks for calling
You look good!
The grand climax:
My heart is ever at your service [Shakespeare]
Run for your life!
I want my Mommy
I've seen that face before
My heart aches
Write me fast
I promise
Till the bitter end
End this rant
The End
Sealed with a Kiss
Not so fast!
Hello & Goodbye
Send cash only
You may already be a winner
Call now
Stay beautiful
Knit me a sweater
Make me feel better
This ain't no crank call
Catch you on the flip
No funny stuff
Happy end
You rub me right
Don't look back
Follow your heart
You've been warned
Scratch and Sniff
Holier than thou
The check is in the mail
Take me home
Right On!
Run for cover
Live and kicking
Singing the blues
Here's looking at you
Live on
Get back here!
Come on home
Miss you much
Cry me a river
Wish I could smell your smell right now
The heart knows no distance
You can do it
Don't give up
You are my heart
From now on...
That's the breaks
All the news that fits
Don't touch my tomatoes
Rise and Shine
Wash your hands
Do the dishes
Stay as you are
Stand tall
Every man for himself
Straight, no chaser
On the rocks
Mind your manners
Mix it up
Make your mark
Shake your booty
Pull it up to the bumper
Bring it on
Bring down the house
You rock
I puke for you
Words aren't enough
I've got your back
Catch me if you can
Why not!?
Love you and now I'm leavin'
Fair and square
I'll race you
You win
Don't forget to breathe
Count to ten
For the record
now we're straight
Look the other way
You forgive me
The pleasure is all mine
Mind over matter

Does it have any significance when a Serbian girl that I met in Belgrade closes her emails to me with "love"? Is that how they teach one to close personal letters as opposed to business letters in Eastern Europe, or may I read the common meaning into it? Otherwise, the e-mails are very warm and friendly.

Here's an irish blessing that I love. I'm not really religious, but I still think this is beautiful, especially if you have to say goodbye to a close friend who you know you won't see again for some time.

* An Old Irish Blessing:
May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind always be at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
and rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

Some well-writen valedictions for use in sympathy messages stumbled upon at:

* We send you thoughts of comfort.
* Sent with love and remembrance,
* Words seem inadequate to express the sadness we feel about "name of deceased" death. We are here to support you in your grieving process. With sincere sympathy,
* With heartfelt condolences,
* We are thinking of you during this difficult time.
* Remember that we love and care about you.
* Please accept our most heartfelt sympathies for your loss...our thoughts are with you and your family during this difficult time.
* Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

* We send you thoughts of peace and courage.
* We pray the love of God enfolds you during your journey through grief.

* Words seem inadequate to express the sadness we feel.
* "Name of Deceased" will remain in our hearts forever.
* "Name of deceased" brought so many gifts to our life. We will never forget him/her!
* With thoughts of peace and courage for you,
* Words cannot even begin to express our sorrow, you are in our prayers.
* My sincere sympathy,
* May the peace which comes from the memories of love shared, comfort you now and in the days ahead.
* May you take comfort in knowing an angel is watching over you.
* May your memories give you strength
* May your heart and soul find peace and comfort.
* Although no words can really help to ease the loss you bear, just know that you are very close in every thought and prayer.
* As you grieve know that we are remembering you and honoring the memory of "name of the deceased".

I think "biz" may stand for "Bises" or "Bise" which in French means "Kisses" or "Kiss". It's often used in sms (mobile written messages) cos it's shorter. People tend to write phonetically -at least in French and Spanish - when writing sms because of space restrictions and "keyboard" unconvenience.

Like a sandpaper massage,
Tedious tales of tomorrow,
Cherubs with chest hair,
Dirt carrots for dust bunnies,
Mouthful of molten muck,
Burning ring of fiber,
Bedeviled by bejeezus,
Touched by an anvil,
Impromptu saliva bath,
Less fun than a barrel full of infected biting monkeys,
Adorned with airborne corn,
Safely ensconsed in a gossamer caccoon of ennui,

That should get you started! Enjoy.

* I'm so glad we had this time together
* Hi ho, hi ho, it's off to work I go,
* Na na na na, hey hey hey, goodbye.
* Was it good for you too?
* Good night, Chet (David, Vienna, etc.)
* With warmest leotards,
* Enjoy life - eat out more often.
* Have a crap-tacular day
* Drive fast - it's how they make angels.
* Head cheese and urine cakes,
* Back to the meth lab,
* Be strong, even if smell isn't everything.
* There's four minutes of your life gone,
* Thanks for encouraging literacy,

(Derivation: "Alo" means presence and "ha" means breath. The Hawaiians use to greet one another nose to nose and would let out a small breath to grant another "the breath of life." This is further translated to respect another life source. It is the actual meaning of Aloha, although it is also used to simply say "hello" and "good-bye.")

*Goodbye my looove

My FAV for YEARS is from Urban Dictionary:
*I'm Audi 5000. or I'm Audi

An adjective describing one or more people who intend on leaving a particular place. Audi's model 5000 sedan was plagued with a problem charcterized by unintended acceleration, in which drivers' complained that the vehicle lurched forward when their foot was on the brake pedal. In reality, it turned out that the acclerator and brake pedals were unusually close together. This is why Audi 5000 is associated with leaving quickly, because that is what this vehicle did when some old fartknocker hit the gas instead of the brakes

…so i was pretty much like all of us who trip on this great resource—you know—Googling for creative ways to convey the subtle illusion of snappy-hippness with a well crafted closer—but what a great surprise to see all of the smiling mind work and respectful co-op on this blog.

I was in quest of the tidy, organized closers and valedictions list yesterday and while it was hilarious to see the progression over the past 5 years or so, I thought that some of you might like a clean listed version. I added a few. It IS a test to find them. It's the least I could do for the cause.

You can download here:

Very cool! Wish our congress played this well together.

Thank you WalkFly for editing the list on 11-25-09. Much to my amazement I know a few not on the list. For the most part 19th century. NOTE:"valedictions typically contain the word yours, a contraction of your servant"
..... I remain, your most humble, loyal and obedient servant,
.....I am, Sir, your most humble and obedient servant,
.....This form is occasionally abbreviated to..Your obt svt,
... The phrase et cetera may be used in place of the remainder of the valediction, as in I am, etc.,
.....I beg to remain, Sir, your most humble and obedient servant
,... Adieu, my dear friend, and believe me ever yours very sincerely and with unalterable affection.... From Ben Franklin's essay The Whistle To Madame Brillon

Posted by: Terry Willie on Dec 05, 09 | 10:09 pm

This is amazing!! I can't believe this has been going on for 7 years and still coming.
Here are ones I haven't seen...

* Good-bye, good luck and may the good Lord take a liking to you

* Off like a herd of turtles
* Off like a terd of hurdles

* Anyhows...

Thx everyone for the great ideas!
