Through thick and thin, your best ones always have your back and can fill your life with laughter and happiness. So why not save a quote today and post it for the world to see. Oh, and don’t forget to tag your loved ones so they know you mean them!
1) The most beautiful discovery true friends make is that they can grow separately without growing apart.
Such a beautiful quote about friendship and so very true. When I was 13 me and my best friend were two peas in a pod, but as our teenage years hit we grew up so very differently, at different schools as well. We became interested in such different things with a different circle of friends. But after all those years I am so proud to say we are still best friends, through and through.
2) It’s better to walk with a friend through darkness, than alone in the light.
This quite literally could not be more true! If you have ever faced a dark times in your life you will know first hand, the only way to come out on the other side is to have a solid circle of friends who you can depend on. I have found through my own experiences that people really show their true colors when the times get tough.
3) Friends are like stars. You don’t always see them, but you know they’re always there.
In my early twenties, me and my best friends were separated for about 3 years. During a time where we could only see each other once or twice a year. We spoke most days online and called once in a while. But throughout all the moving around and travelling, we stay connected and became stronger friends because of it. I always believe if someone makes the effort to stay in contact with you for such a long period of time apart, they must really care.
4) True friends are like diamonds. Bright, beautiful, valuable and always in style.
Haha, I love this quote. My best friends sent me this a couple of years ago. Firstly, because she loves diamonds and secondly because she thought I was a diamond among many rocks, which I thought was super sweet. Share this friendship quote with your bestie for a giggle.
5) Good friends don’t let you do stupid things, alone.
Another quote which reminds me a huge amount of my best friend. Her partner booked for her to do a sky dive for her birthday, as she had stupidly told him she always wanted to do one, during a time when they first started dating. I assume to act super cool and exciting, thinking he would forget. This is a girl who is terrified of crossing bridges or looking over balconies that are more than flight up. He had saved up for a while to pay for it and it was too late to get a refund. So I booked myself a ticket to do it with her. After we landed (not very gracefully) she wanted to do it all over again. She gave me a massive hug and said “she could never of done that alone”. Loved it!
6) Friends that travel together, stay together forever.
Me and one my good friends took a 3 week vacation around Europe about 6 years ago. Some of my most fondest memories are from that trip. I can honestly say it was one of the best times of my life and something that brought us together ever so much.
7) A good friend knows all your best stories. A best friend has lived them with you.
I love this! I have to admit I have quite a few friends I see socially, who I consider as good friends. But there are a really small handful of people who I consider my best friends. People who really deserve to be called bestie’s.
8) Friends are like the bacon bits, in the salad bowl of life
This quote actually made me laugh out loud! If I am honest, I try my best to eat healthier but like most of it fail miserably. When I do go through a period of trying to diet, I order the salad which includes bacon and loads of bread on the side. I tend to cover it heavily in dressing and dip my bread in the dressing, while nibbling on the bacon bits. Most of the healthy stuff gets left.
9) True friends are never apart. Maybe in distance, but never in heart.
I love this quote to bits! Unfortunately my previous job meant I had to travel a lot leaving little time for socialising with my loved ones. But best friends always find a way to talk. No distance or time difference is going to keep me from speaking to my best friends.
10) Our friendship isn’t a big thing. It’s a million little things.
Such a cute quote and completely true. Friendship is not about the huge gestures, its about the millions of times they have cheered you up or the time they looked after you while you were stumbling around town on a drunken night out. The times they lend you money without you even asking or the times they give your ex a dirty look when they walk by.
11) Friends become our chosen family.
They say you cannot choose your family but you can choose your friends. Out of all the billions of people in the world I feel so blessed to have met my best friends. My life would not be the same without them. I love you all girls, you know who you are.
12) Friends show their love in times of trouble. Not times of happiness.
Through my life I have had 5 friends I considered as my best friends. Sadly when the chips were down, 2 of those friends headed for the hills. I think a good friend should be somebody who is there for you in your time of need and not just someone to go out with. I’m so glad these experiences in life helped me realise who my true friends were. I love them to bits.
13) We’ve been friends for so long, I can’t remember which one of us is the bad influence.
I definitely know out of my small social group who the bad influencer is. I think we all do. Even when we get older, some of us don’t change their wicked ways. You know who you are Emily.
14) Just remember if you fall over, I will be there to pick you up.. after I stop laughing.
Haha, this quote reminds me of so many funny times in my life where this literally happened. I once completely missed the side walk edge, my friends claim it was drink related but I (think) was completely sober. I went flying, thankfully it was late at night and there were no cars on the road. It did hurt (mainly my ego) and my friends just burst out laughing, once they kind of checked I was okay. They did pick me up afterwards though, thanks guys.
15) When I count my blessings, I count you twice.
We really should all appreciate our loved ones more. Take the time to see them as much as possible, as you never know when you won’t be able to do anymore. Life goes by so far, so make time to enjoy their company as much as possible. Even just a coffee and a catch up once a week.
