A few quotes about friendship because without friends, life would be pretty lame.
True friends are one of those things that money just can't buy. These friendship quotes show us that when we have people in our lives to share our experiences with, things just seem more entertaining. Even if you just have one good friend, life can be ten times more enjoyable because of it. Sure, at time we have disagreements and bickering but in the end, your friends that have been there with you through the good times and the bad are the one of the few who know you best. The laughter, the tears, the shared memories, these are the things that make good friendships so precious. Hopefully, these quotes about friendship will not only put a smile on your face but to also help you cherish the people who you have in your life.
Along with these few short quotes on friendship, I will add my own perspective just for fun.
"Only your real friends will tell you when your face is dirty." - Sicilian Proverb
Real friends will be straight up with you. If you're making a fool out of yourself, they'll tell you to prevent you from continuing to make a fool out of yourself. They aren't afraid to be honest because they know that you know they have your best interest in mind.
"Life’s not about people who act true to your face. It’s about people who remain true behind your back." - Unknown
It's a sad fact that there are many fake people in this world. By fake I mean people who will say great things about you when you're around but will bad mouth you when you're not. This is why true friends isn't always easy to find. Many people see their "friends" as tools. The lesson is that when you do find a true friend, hang onto them.
"The antidote for fifty enemies is one friend." - Aristotle
It's easy to make enemies but not so easy to make a true friend. Even when you feel like the whole world is against you, all it can take is one person to be by your side to give you the strength to take on the world. This is the power of true friendship. It's not about the amount of friends that one has, it's about the strength of each bond.
"A friend is one of the nicest things you can have, and one of the best things you can be." - Douglas Pagels
Pity the man who has all of the money in the world but no friends. Some people will back stab and claw their way to the top only to realize that the people around them who they call friends only surround them because of their success. If you want to have true friends, you must first be a true friend to others.
"Friends make the bad times good — and the good times unforgettable." - Unknown
As mentioned earlier, friends make life more fun. You can spend a day watching TV by yourself and be bored out of your mind or you can spend the day watching TV with some friends and have a blast. Friends add juice to the experience of life. Watching a movie and having someone to talk about it afterwards makes the movie twice as good, or twice as bad if it was a bad movie of course.
"A friend is someone who knows all about you, and still likes you." - Elbert Hubbard
Everyone has their insecurities. Every day, we do things to hide those "flaws". Many people walk around with a mask as they try to hide their true self. Many people are afraid that if they were to be their true selves, others won't accept them. A true friend is someone who knows all of your flaws and still wants to hang out with you. They like you for who you really are.
"A good friend is a connection to life, a tie to the past, a road to the future, the key to sanity in a totally insane world." - Lois Wyse
One of the best things about having a friend that you have known since you were a kid is that the two of you share a bond that can't be replaced. They are like a connection to the past. How many friends can say, "Remember back in second grade when...?" Life can be a bumpy road and when you have people in your life who has shared so many experiences with you, it makes even the toughest days a bit easier. If you have one of these types of friendships, make the effort to cherish and nuture those friendships. They may be one of the most valuable things you have.
