63 Inspirational Friendship Quotes To Make Your Friendship Awesome

There are many reasons behind writing these friendship quotes. These friendship quotes not only just remind me of the gift of friendship I’ve received in life, but also these friendship quotes take me back to the old good days.

The good thing about being a writer is that I’ve never settled down in one place. As a young college student, I moved from one place to another in the hope for new stories, and along with the new stories came new friends in life. Some remained with me for a long time and some left a few yet beautiful memories. I learned something from every person whom I called a friend.

These friendship quotes are for those dear friends who came across my journey of life and helped me to grow. Without them, it would not be possible for me to reach where I’m today. Although a lot of my friends are Telugu, Tamil and from Kerala, I wish I could write friendship quotes in Malayalam or friendship quotes in Telugu especially for them.

As I’m unable to speak the languages of these states, I’ve left these friendship quotes in English. Another reason for not posting friendship quotes in Telugu or Malayalam is that most of the readers share English as their common language.

Below listed are the 63 simple and cute friendship quotes and saying to bring back the delightful memories of your friends. I’ve also included short friendship quotes so that you can read all the sayings quickly.
