International Friendship Day Quotes To Celebrate With Your Friends

What’s your happiest memory with your best friend ?

Well in my case its spending my life’s 12 yrs with my friend. We have faced all the ups and downs together. Celebrated our victories together and helped out each other in our hardest time. A friend is someone who can see the truth and pain in you even when you are fooling everyone else.

A true friend is someone who will always love you—the imperfect, the confused, the wrong you because that is what people are supposed to do. A true friend embosoms freely, advises justly, assists readily, adventures boldly, takes all patiently, defends courageously, and continues a friend unchangeably. A True friendship resists time, distance, and silence.
