True Friendship Quotes on Your Journey Together as Friends

True friendship quotes memorialize why best friends become best friends—because they are keepers of each other's hearts. It is

easy enough to make friends, but harder to keep them through the years and form a bond with somebody who will be with you through thick and thin. Some best friends fall in love over time, while some become best friends in an instant because of unexpected circumstances that prove there is loyalty, respect, and trust between two people. Below are some hand picked best friend quotes from sources as varied as books, TV shows, and author interviews. They are in turns inspiring, funny, serious, but always touching.
