20 Of the sweetest friendship quotes from books

Sometimes life can be difficult, and we need people in our corner who we can go to about anything. People who makes our lives easier, better, brighter. Not by doing anything in particular, just by being there for us.

These people are what we call our friends. Friends are one of the most important things to have in life.

Here are 20 of the sweetest quotes about friendship from books.

1. “Two a.m.’ He swallowed, then said, “You know. The person you can call at two a.m. and, no matter what, you can count on them. Even if they’re asleep or it’s cold or you need to be bailed out of jail…they’ll come for you. It’s like, the highest level of friendship.”
Sarah Dessen, What Happened to Goodbye

2. “’But it does not seem that I can trust anyone,’ said Frodo.
Sam looked at him unhappily. ‘It all depends on what you want,’ put in Merry. ‘You can trust us to stick with you through thick and thin–to the bitter end. And you can trust us to keep any secret of yours–closer than you keep it yourself. But you cannot trust us to let you face trouble alone, and go off without a word. We are your friends, Frodo.”

J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

3. “I got you to look after me, and you got me to look after you, and that’s why.”
John Steinbeck, Of Mice and Men

4. “Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art…. It has no survival value; rather it is one of those things which give value to survival.”
C.S. Lewis, The Four Loves

5. “Our true friends are those who are with us when the good things happen. They cheer us on and are pleased by our triumphs. False friends only appear at difficult times, with their sad, supportive faces, when, in fact, our suffering is serving to console them for their miserable lives.”
Paulo Coelho, The Zahir

6. “No man is useless while he has a friend.”
Robert Louis Stevenson, Lay Morals

7. “Time doesn’t take away from friendship, nor does separation.”
Tennessee Williams, Memoirs

8. “We always see the worst in our selves. Our most volnerable selves. We need someone to get close enough to tell us that we’re wrong. Someone we trust.”
Rachel Cohn, Naomi and Ely’s No Kiss List

9. “Just because I’ve gone and snagged myself a hot boyfriend doesn’t mean I’m going to leave my bestfriend high and dry.”
Becca Fitzpatrick, Crescendo

10. “We are your friends. It is the law of friendship that you tell us things you don’t want to tell us.”
J. Lynn, Wait for You

11. “If one’s friends do not openly laugh at him, they are not in fact his friends.”
Dean Koontz, Forever Odd

12. “It is absolutely okay with me if you need to keep some secrets. I’ve been thinking about this and I decided that a best friend is someone who, when they don’t understand, they still understand.”
Nancy Werlin, Impossible

13. “Friendship is everything. Friendship is more than talent. It is more than the government. It is almost the equal of family.”
Mario Puzo, The Godfather

14. “So, they went off together. But wherever they go, and whatever happens to them on the way, in that enchanted place on the top of the Forest, a little boy and his Bear will always be playing.”
A.A. Milne, The House at Pooh Corner

15. “One friend with whom you have a lot in common is better than three with whom you struggle to find things to talk about.”
