Best Friend Quotes

We all need a best friend, someone who stays in your life, share secrets, tears, laughter and creating memories. A relationship with your best friend is unique. Best friends are one of a kind, and we don't label everyone as 'best friend'. There are no binding commitments, no judgments between best friends. There is trust, support, and acceptance.

Having a best friend is a gift, we can depend on them 24/7. They help us to navigate through life, and they make the journey a little bit better. A strong bond with your best friend can be therapeutic, as they offer a shoulder to cry on and unconditional support. A best friend can give us a self-esteem boost by making us feel important and valuing our opinions. 

Life is boring without having someone to go on adventures, trying new things and sharing experiences. The greatest thing about having a best friend is being able to share everything.

Below, we have compiled a list of best friend quotes to share with your bestie. Browse through a collection of best friend quotes from famous authors, philopshers, and others sharing their experience on having a best friend, true friends having an impact on your life and more.

Michael Bassey Johnson- True Friends

Michael Bassey Johnson- True Friends

True friends are those who came into your life, saw the most negative part of you, but are not ready to leave you, no matter how contagious you are to them.
-Michael Bassey Johnson 

This quote by Michael Bassey Johnson illustrates "true friendship." True friends are people who accept you for who you are. Regardless of your situation, emotions, and personality traits. They don't walk out of your life when you are going through a difficult time, they stay and give their awareness and full attention. True friends are there to support you, not only during times of success but adversity.  As Michael Bassey says," no matter how contagious you are to them." With sincere friendship, forgiveness comes easily. We all make mistakes from time to time, and a genuine friend will understand and overlook that. True friends make us want to be better people. They don't try to get us in trouble, create drama or encourage gossiping. True friendship is one of life's greatest gift, just having someone there to listen and have your back when life gets rough brings positive feelings and emotions. For some, true friends are very difficult to find, but with technology, it is easy to connect with others with the same needs.
