When you have a best friend, you likely text each other all the time, meet up for movie marathons, and give each other gifts for special occasions. While all of that is undoubtedly wonderful, when was the last time you really told your best bud how you feel about them? If you can’t imagine how you’d get through life without your person, it sounds like some best friend quotes are in order to show your appreciation for your unique friendship.

Friendship quotes, whether they’re funny or inspiring, serve so many warm and fuzzy purposes. You can sit and simply read through quotes to feel even more grateful for the pals you have.

Or, have something personalized with a quote that perfectly sums up your friendship.

No matter how you choose to use these quotes, we guarantee that you’ll be feeling all the feels about your bestie in no time. Get those tissues ready!
