Having a best friend is truly one of the greatest gifts life can give you. Whether you've known them for the majority of your life or met them in adulthood and had an immediate bond, there's no denying that finding your person (or group of people) is something you will always cherish. Though you probably already show your appreciation for your closest friends with unique gifts, sweet best friend Instagram captions, and relatable memes, sometimes all you need is to share the perfect best friend quote to accurately show them what they mean to you.
Since there is no one official holiday to celebrate friendship, every day is the right time to send your bestie a quote to make her feel loved and cherished. And if spending time with your best friend has become more difficult lately — whether due to social distancing or life changes — sending them a text with a loving quote accompanied by a throwback photo of you two is a great way to say, "I love you and I miss you." Some say blood is thicker than water, but most women will tell you their girlfriends feel like family, and these 60 quotes about friendship will help you relay that.
