75 Friend Quotes

Let these friend quotes help you define what being a friend means. You will find thoughts of many people about what a friend is.

We all have friends and we treasure the relationship we have with them. Let these quotes remind you of the qualities we find in the people we consider our friend.

An acquaintance is not considered a friend. They may turn into a friend but acquaintances are merely just people we know. A friend is more - it is someone whose company you enjoy, someone who you can call on just when you need to talk, someone who encourages you.

Take care of your friends. Let them know that you value their friendship.
