100 Friendship Quotes to Share with Your Friends

What is the True Meaning of Friendship?

A friendship is an establishment of trust and love between two people which doesn’t include romantic aspects. Friends are individuals who will be with you through your entire life, regardless of age, romantic partner, or other life changes which may come your way.

They are often more important than a romantic relationship because they can be guides when the romantic relationship fails. Friends share a certain level of mental intimacy which isn’t found in other familial relationships.
