Quotes to Celebrate Friendship Day

Honor Your True Friends With a Quote and a Toast

True friendship stands the test of time. You might be separated by geographical boundaries and distances. But when your best friend calls, you can transcend any physical or mental boundary.

Childhood friends have a special bond with you. They knew you before you became worldly wise, were there in your childhood and teenage years and knew your family. They share your past. Friends you make as an adult see the full blooming of your soul, wit, and heart and are friends in many dimensions. They celebrate your highs and are there to sympathize with your lows.
