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
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
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
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
16. “Life is an awful, ugly place to not have a best friend.”
― Sarah Dessen, Someone Like You
17. “Friends are God’s way of apologizing for your family.”
― Dr. Wayne W. Dyer, The Power of Intention: Learning to Co-create Your World Your Way
18. “Real friends are the ones you can count on no matter what.
The ones who go into the forest to find you and bring you home.
And real friends never have to tell you that they’re your friends.”
― Morgan Matson, Since You’ve Been Gone
