Inspirational Friendship Quotes
for Your BFF

Friendship: both the word and the concept are magical. And a great friend quote can distill all that is best in that wonderful relationship.

Inspirational friendship quotes speak to those amazing people whose nose you punch when you're six, and whose shoulder you cry on when you're sixteen. The ones that are still beside you when you're sixty, too. Friends are quite a remarkable invention.
