Get the godspeed mug.
Essentially, the phrase godspeed holds the intention of a personal blessing. It is a somewhat old-fashioned saying often used sarcastically or in a humorous fashion, yet genuine earnest and/or true concern can also be one's meaning when using this expression. The intent is to convey hope or desire for another person to successfully accomplish or complete a difficult task, mission, or journey either currently underway or about to be undertaken. Oftentimes the endeavor at hand is complex and arduous if not convoluted, having little chance of success.
"I say goodbye, good luck, and godspeed to you sir; I hope you attain rapid success and wish you the best of luck on your upcoming journey!"
