13 Best Friend Quotes That Capture the Essence of True Friendship

What fun is life if you don’t have a best friend to share it with? Here are 13 best friend quotes you can share with yours to let her know you’re her biggest fan!

Some best friends have known each other since grade school, growing up together and becoming more like sisters than best friends. And some don’t meet until later in life, when they’re older and have more experiences under their belt, sharing the wisdom they’ve learned along the way.

A Best Friend Is…

Regardless of when you met your best friend, one thing is for sure: She is irreplaceable. She is the one that you tell all of your secrets to because you know they won’t go from her ears to her mouth, telling everyone else about your foolishness. She is also the one that you can be yourself with, even if you don’t like who you are at the moment.

Essentially, she is the one you call when you are happy, sad, tired, irritable, ready for a laugh, needing a cry, have something to say, have nothing to say, want to yell, want to scream, aren’t sure how to cope, don’t know where to turn, need someone to celebrate with, have a story to tell, and on and on. She is quite simply your best friend.

Here are some beautiful best friend quotes.

An Ode to All Best Friends

With your best friend in mind (and maybe with her physically at your side), here are some quotes that are sure to bring about some memories the two of you have shared along your very special journey of friendship:

“Best friends: the ones you can only be mad at for so long
because you have important things to tell them”
~ Author Unknown

Even when best friends disagree, it’s usually not for any length of time. You can have a spat with your best friend and within a day or two (or an hour or two), you’ve made up and are already lost in one of your many deep and meaningful conversations.

“My best friend is the one who brings out the best in me”
~ Henry Ford

We love our best friends not necessarily for who they are, but how we feel when we are with them. A true best friend makes you want to set your goals high – and inspires you to reach them!

“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.”
~ Author Unknown

Sometimes you can go days, weeks, months and even years without talking to your best friend, but from the moment you start your conversation, it is as if you never went a day without contact. You also don’t have to worry that your best friend thinks you don’t care if you don’t call on a certain day or time. She knows you do; she just isn’t going to make you prove it.

“Things are never quite as scary when you’ve got a best friend”
~ Bill Watterson

Life can be pretty treacherous from time to time. When you are outside your comfort zone or on completely unfamiliar territory, it is easy to feel overwhelmed with fear. A best friend is right there beside you as you take steps on a new and unknown path, letting you know that they’ve got your back.

“Best friends are the people who make your problems their problems
just so you don’t have to go through them alone”
~ Author Unknown

One of the truest treasures of having a best friend is that she understands your problems because she is with you in your journey, feeling what you feel and thinking what you think. You don’t even have to tell her – she just knows.

“My best friend is the man who in wishing me well wishes for my sake”
~ Aristotle

Everyone is so busy in this day and age that most well wishes are nothing more than basic greetings. However, a best friend means her well wishes with every ounce of her fiber because your happiness is almost more important than her own.

“A good friend knows your stories.
A best friend has lived them with you.”
~ Author Unknown

You can always tell who your best friend is by what she does when you’re having a hard time. A friend will ask what she can do to make it better while a best friend doesn’t have to ask; she just makes it better.

“Everyone is your best friend when you are successful.
Make sure that the people you surround yourself with are also the people
that you are not afraid of failing with”
~ Paula Abdul

You can’t be best friends with someone and only take them when they are at their best. Best friends are just as present in your life when you are at your worst. They are there to help pick you up when you stumble and fall.

“A best friend can tell you things you don’t want to tell yourself”
~ Author Unknown

One great thing about a true best friend is that you never have to wonder what they are thinking about what you do (or don’t do) because they will tell you. They are frighteningly honest not because they want to hurt your feelings, but because they care enough to let you know when you’re being a damn fool.

“A best friend is like a four leaf clover;
hard to find and lucky to have”
~ Sarah Jessica Parker

You may have many friends come and go in your life, but best friends are much harder to find. These are the friends that make you thankful you found them. The friends that you know you could never replace.

“A stranger stabs you in the front;
a friend stabs you in the back;
a boyfriend stabs you in the heart,
but best friends only poke each other with straws”
~ Author Unknown

Best friends can be playful with each other, but never mean each other harm. They can poke and jab at each other, never worrying that the other will take it out of context. Instead, their only worry is that they will be outwitted and outsmarted and planning their next revenge.

“Friends buy you lunch.
Best friends eat your lunch.”
~ Author Unknown

This is only one small part of beautiful best friend quotes to inspire you.

Last, but certainly not least, best friends know no boundaries with each other because there aren’t any. What is yours is theirs and what is theirs is yours. It’s a relationship that doesn’t keep score and doesn’t declare a winner or loser. It only declares you friends.

“A friend is one who overlooks your broken fence and admires the flowers in your garden.”   Unknown

There is no one on the globe who understands you like your best friend. You despise seeing your best friend get anything less than she deserves, and you will go to any length to ensure she gets what she deserves.

Through thick and thin, you two will always be by each other’s side.  Here are only some of the things that your best friend deserves.

Share these best friend quotes with your best friend and let her know how much she means to you – today and always!
