Back in 2011 when were devouring Mindy Kaling’s book Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?, one quote in particular practically jumped off the page for us: “One friend with whom you have a lot in common is better than three with whom you struggle to find things to talk about.”
It’s so true, isn’t it? Finding and making friends is hard enough, but when you stumble upon that magical unicorn, a best friend who truly gets you, inside and out, it’s like you’ve struck gold. You feel like the luckiest person in the world having that one friend you could sit in silence with and feel truly comfortable (a quote we’d later find out slipped from the lips of a gentleman by the name of Donald Tyson Gentry).
So, we kept digging and found even more quotes about friendship that made our hearts swell five-times its size — quotes that may or may not have made us shed a tear. We’ll never tell.
Ahead, 30 friendship quotes you’ll want to share with your BFF stat.
