      Going way outside the box with this one, lol. I'm not sure when this phrase came into use but if we assume it was during the revolutionary war, it could mean that the struggle continues and if it ends well it was worth it.

          Thanks Uninvited, I didn't want to google it before answering and forgot to do so after posting. Ok, to put this into Shakespeare's words...Yon struggle continues and if it ends well it was worth it, sire.

          yeah that's just about the literal meaning of the phrase I was wondering if you could take it out of the box a little!!

      I am not ashamed to admit that definition ends well

    The only answer I can deduce from the phrase is that if something ends in a good way, then it is good, i.e. it ended well, so all is well.

    Can't think of any other possible meaning.

    hmm, it's well if it ends well.  if it ends well, its well.  hmm...nope, can't come up with a different meaning!

    there is also an analogous connection to the axiom, "The ends justify the means"

    Any action taken, even it was bad, if the result turns out good, does it become good?
