Friendship Quotes

Quotes about friendship can sometimes communicate the importance of a relationship that is hard to describe in words. If you have experienced true friendship and the companionship of a real friend, you will relate to these quotes from the bottom of your heart.

1) Friendship is like a tree that takes many years of nurturing and care. But when it blooms, it gives you shelter, comfort, and fruit like no other.

2) Don't expect anything from your friends. Friendship itself is the greatest gift you will ever receive in life.

3) Friendship is one of the very few things in the world that is truly priceless. You can buy friends, but you can't buy friendship.

4) Friendship is the biggest asset in the balance sheet of your life.

5) Friendship is the best medicine—it can bring you up, no matter how down you feel, and you don't need a prescription.

6) Friendship is the only pillar of life that you can lean on in both the good times and the bad.

7) Friendship is the boat that will help you sail through the roughest of seas.

8) True friendship is one of the very few things in life you can never have too much of.

9) Friendship is an umbrella that allows you to weather life's storms. All you need to do is hold on to it.

10) Many often don't realize the true meaning of friendship until it is over. Make sure to take the time to treasure it.

11) Friendship is one of life's greatest assets and greatest debts.

12) Friendship is the armor that protects you during bad times and the suit that helps you shine during your good times.

13) The friendship of one good friend is more powerful than the acquaintance of thousand others.

14) Friendship knows no boundaries of sex, religion, age, background, education, money, nor any other roadblock society may put forth.

15) Friendship is like chocolate. No matter what your age, we all love having chocolate, and we all love the company of good friends.

Note: It does not need to be Friendship Day to thank you friends for being there for you. Friendship is a bond that should be cherished and celebrated every day. So stop waiting for that one day in the year, and give your dear friends a hug as you show them how thankful you are to have people like them in your life. Just like saying 'I love you' to your partner, saying 'thank you' to your friend is one of the very few things in life that will never go out of vogue.
