12 Beautiful and Cute Quotes About Friendship

Friendship is an odd thing. It’s inexplicable yet cherished all the same. We love our friends and they love us so here’s 12 quotes about friendship to remind us why.

Whether you have one friend, a handful or too many to name, there’s no denying that the gift of friendship is something to be cherished and nurtured. We may not fully understand why we choose the friends we do, what it is about certain people that we come to love and why our friends reciprocate that love but one thing’s for sure – there are few things more valued in this life than the love and respect of a good friend. They’ll pick you up when you’re down, clap for you on your proudest day, embark on all kinds of silly adventures by your side and as you grow together your two lives will become one. With that in mind, here’s twelve quotes to sum up the whys and the hows that come with having friends.

The Start Of A Beautiful Friendship…

quote about friendship

There’s no rule book when it comes to making friends and no hard fast rules on how to be a great friend but of course there are some lovely quotes that begin to define what a beautiful friendship is and how they come about.

“Friendship is born at that moment when one man says to another: “What! You too? I thought that no one but myself . . .” ~ C.S. Lewis, The Four Loves

“Don’t walk behind me; I may not lead. Don’t walk in front of me; I may not follow. Just walk beside me and be my friend.” ~ Albert Camus

“There is nothing better than a friend, unless it is a friend with chocolate.” ~ Linda Grayson

“I think if I’ve learned anything about friendship, it’s to hang in, stay connected, fight for them, and let them fight for you. Don’t walk away, don’t be distracted, don’t be too busy or tired, don’t take them for granted. Friends are part of the glue that holds life and faith together. Powerful stuff.” ~ Jon Katz

What Makes A Friend?

What is it about certain people that when they enter our lives they never leave? And what is it about friendship that makes it so utterly special? Perhaps there is no explaining the bond we have with friends and why exactly we have it but here’s some lovely quotes that begin to shed light on the mystery…

“I would rather walk with a friend in the dark, than alone in the light.” ~ Helen Keller

“A true friend never gets in your way unless you happen to be going down.” ~ Arnold H. Glasow

“Friendship is the only cement that will ever hold the world together.” ~ Woodrow T. Wilson

“Love is blind; friendship closes its eyes.” ~ Friedrich Nietzsche

“Growing apart doesn’t change the fact that for a long time we grew side by side; our roots will always be tangled. I’m glad for that.” ~ Ally Condie

For The Love Of Our Best Friend…

Friends are the family you choose

Best friends are a special breed of people. Often, they know us better than we know ourselves and they’re there for us no matter what. For some of us, our best friend is by our side daily, they’re the person who motivates us at the gym and picks our children up from school, while some of us only get the pleasure of their company once in a blue moon. A best friend isn’t made by how often we laugh together though, it’s about the two of you having a connection and loving each other unconditionally. Here’s some quotes that I think sum up what a best friend is perfectly…

“Best friends are people you know you don’t need to talk to every single day. You don’t even need to talk to each other for weeks, but when you do, it’s like you never stopped talking.” ~ Unknown

“It’s the friends you can call up at 4 a.m. that matter.” ~ Marlene Dietrich

“Friends are the family you choose.” ~ Jess C. Scott

Where would we be without our friends by our sides? Who would laugh with us, be silly with us and pick us when life is beating us down? It’s safe to say that life wouldn’t be the same were it not for our friends, in fact, it would be a pretty dark place indeed. That said, I hope this article has inspired you to go out an be the best friend you can possibly be and to appreciate your friends and all they do for you.
