44 outstanding friendship quotes for good friends

friendship quotes

Friendship quotes are a great way to remind yourself of the close connection you have with your friends.

Good friends are rare and hard to find. Even more some that walk at our side almost all our life. There are far more people that enter our lifes at a certain point, walk a little while side by side with us and then leave again. That´s not good or bad, it´s just how life is.

Nobody can guarantee that there is a friendship forever or that friendship turns to love someday. We should enjoy the company as long as we have it. Even if you and your bestie aren´t directly connected and maybe even live in a different country, the connection is still there.

Being clingy or trying to coerce someone to be your friend will never build a sustainable friendship. Going from best friends to lovers and back is also troublesome, because the emotions on one side are usually stronger and that person wants more sooner or later.

The following quotes are not only for your entertainment but also as guidelines and suggestions how to handle friendship. Some quotes are short some are funny but all of them carry a certain wisdom in them.

Are those quotes about best friends or just good friends?

That is certainly a matter of how you see and value friendship. If it´s a person you can talk about everything and that knows all your deepest secrets or if you just have someone loyal that you can call even at 4am to pick you up in the middle or nowhere. Actually, a person that fits in both shoes would be great.

That´s imho the basic idea of a best friend and a good friend. A good friend is a random person you talk to, meet but not necessarily knows all your innermost feelings. That´s reserved for the best friend. Maybe you have many friends, that´s awesome, but how many are really really close to you? It´s only those few that count as best friends.

One last point to address. The following friendship quotes are for girls and boys, so no bias here. There are certainly a few that you could consider typical best friends quotes for girls, but most of them are unisexual.
