I wanted to just be close to somebody.

Be at peace with your decisions.”

20.”Unfailing friends are essential, when ‘presence’ and ‘absence’ are wrangling in our daily living, and our presence is rampaged by murk and woe, while passion and lust for life are trampled.

Your mind is melting fast, your soul is whispering trust, your eyes are begging please and your anger has turned to lust. Let me undress your body, caress your skin and wetly massage your mind back into making love to me again. I’d rather say I’m sorry and keep my best friend than have this come to an end. Be encouraged but more importantly…be lethal with your make up love.”

— Kerry E. Wagner

They’re the same place, but heaven is when you get everything you want and you meet Mummy and Daddy and your best friends and you all have a hug and a kiss and play your harps. Hell is the same place – no fire and brimstone – but they all pass by and don’t see you. There’s nothing, no recognition. You’re waving, “It’s me, your father,” but you’re invisible. You’re on a cloud, you’ve got your harp, but you can’t play with nobody because they don’t see you. That’s hell.”

— Keith Richards

 

31. “You were her friend?” he asked. “You liked her?” I told him Ella was the best friend I ever had. He paused again, and I feared he would say she died. But he finally answered that he believed her to be well and married to a rich gentleman. He added, ” She is happy, I think, She is rich, so she is happy.” Without thinking, I blurted, “Ella doesn’t care about riches.” Then I realized I’d contradicted a prince! ” How do you know?” he said. I answered, “At school everyone hated me because I wasn’t wealthy and because I spoke with an accent. She was the only one who was kind.” “Perhaps she’s changed,” he said. ” I don’t think so, your Highness.”

— Gail Carson Levine

I want to make forever promises to you out loud, in front of God, and I want you to promise to be my woman, my wife, my one and only love, my best friend and my conscience. You’re never easy, Ellie, but you’re sure never boring.

— Robyn Carr

 

33. “Lissa and I had been best friends ever since kindergarden, when our teacher had paired us together for writing lessons. Forcing five-year-olds to spell “Vasilisa Dragomir” and “Rosemarie Hathaway” was beyond cruel and we’d -or rather, I’d- responded appropriately. I’d chucked my book at our teacher and called her a fascist bastard. I hadn’t known what those words meant, but I’d known how to hit a moving target.”

— Richelle Mead

 

34. “you aren’t just someone I loved back then. You were my best friend, my best self, and I can’t imagine giving that up again.” He hesitated, searching for the right words. “You might not understand, but I gave you the best of me, and after you left, nothing was ever the same.”

— Nicholas Sparks

36. “I know the M-word makes you nervous, but yeah. I’m talking about the big, permanent friendship. A little different from what Joe and Charles had, though.

I know that kind of friendship requires hard work, but you know, I’m pretty good at hard work.

— Suzanne Brockmann

 

37. “I, Tiberius Claudius Drusus Nero Germanicus This-that-and-the-other (for I shall not trouble you yet with all my titles) who was once, and not so long ago either, known to my friends and relatives and associates as “Claudius the Idiot”, or “That Claudius”, or “Claudius the Stammerer”, or “Clau-Clau-Claudius” or at best as “Poor Uncle Claudius”, am now about to write this strange history of my life; starting from my earliest childhood and continuing year by year until I reach the fateful point of change where, some eight years ago, at the age of fifty-one, I suddenly found myself caught in what I may call the “golden predicament” from which I have never since become disentangled.”

— Matshona Dhliwayo

 

39. “In the Bhagavad Gita they say, “The mind under control is your best friend, the mind wandering about is your worst enemy.” Make it your best friend, to the point where you can rely on it. Your mind makes you strong from within. It is your wise companion. The sacrifices you make will be rewarded. Life doesn’t change, but your perception does. It’s all about what you focus on. Withdraw from the world’s influence and no longer be controlled by your emotions. If you can grab the wheel of your mind, you can steer the direction of where your life will go.”

— Wim Hof

 

40. “The old man slowly raised himself from the piano stool, fixed those cheerful blue eyes piercingly and at the same time with unimaginable friendliness upon him, and said: “Making music together is the best way for two people to become friends.

I recalled words a friend had told me, the philosophy of her faith. “Life is a journey and a struggle,” she had said. “We cannot control it, but we can make the best of any situation.” I was indeed in quite a situation. It was up to me to make the best of it.”

— Wangari Maathai

 

43. “This is what I have held against boyfriends all my life: that they are the people who steal your best friends away from you piece by piece, and when they give them back (if they ever do), it is only when they have made your best friends sadder and more heartbroken than when they were first taken. Because that’s what it looks like, from here. It had to be his fault, because how could someone who is my best friend ever really choose to see me less and less until we see each other almost not at all? This is what I believed: Best friends, if only by virtue of you calling them your “best friend,” just don’t do that.
But they do.”

— Katie Heaney

 

44. “you aren’t just someone I loved back then. You were my best friend, my best self, and I can’t imagine giving that up again.” He hesitated, searching for the right words. “You might not understand, but I gave you the best of me, and after you left, nothing was ever the same.”

— Nicholas Sparks

47. “Of course you love her!” he’d replied. “She’s been your best friend since you both could walk, and now she’s grown up to be beautiful, talented, intelligent and witty. What’s not to love about all that?”

— John Flanagan

 

48. “I believe in women uplifting other women. The only thing that makes our gender weaker, is the fact that we are the gender less likely to stand up for the other. We are the gender more likely to try and make another look bad, and when one of us is already bad, instead of being kind, we pound them into the ditches. And that’s what makes us weak, nothing else. If we can change this, we can change the whole structure of our being female, I truly believe this. Personally, I grew up admiring other women and wanting to be friends with them, but unfortunately, I learned the hard way that they were the ones who would hurt me. Women hurt other women all too often, and that’s a fact. I’d like to see not just us not hurting one another; but us actually making a conscious effort to be happy for another when she is happy, to hope the best for another when she has better, and to lift another up when she is down. We know that so many of us are harsh, cold and selfish, and we try to protect ourselves from one another, that’s the reality. But it’s also a reality that what is real can change. So that means we can change it.”

— C. JoyBell C.

— Ernesto Che Guevara

 

50. “The person who knew you best when you were seventeen will always have a claim on you, no matter how much you change. There’s something seductive and magnetic about it, the feeling of being understood like that. I suppose it goes both ways.”

— Colleen Hoover

 

54. “Be the girl you want your daughter to be. Be the girl you want your son to date. Be classy, be smart, be real, but most importantly be nice.”

— Germany Kent

 

55. “We are loved way more by some of the people who have not contacted us in the last twelve or so months than we are loved by some of those who contact us every twelve or so days … or hours.”

— Mokokoma Mokhonoana

 

56. “I said to my friend, “Why do you smoke (cigarettes)?”He replied, “Because I like to put myself on the line for the welfare and safety of others.”I astonishingly said, “Sorry, I didn’t get your point.”He replied, “I want a cigarette-free world. Therefore, I am trying my best to end all the cigarettes from the world.”

— Saad Salman

 

57. “A male-female close-friendship hardly differs from a relationship; it takes “relating” to be friends. But sadly, not every relationship has friendship in it. It’s just ironical that two people who are not good enough to be best friends are in love and want to spend the rest of their lives together.”

— Olaotan Fawehinmi

 

58. “Leave me alone”, is not a good news! “Let’s be together” is not a bad news. We were made to be each others keepers. Let love lead”

— Israelmore Ayivor

 

59. “Faith should be a tool to set us free, not a means to fuel a fascist agenda seeking to impede the civil liberties of the “us”s. The first shall be last and the last shall be first… therefore, those who stand for their Pius self-righteousness in order to trample those they deem inferior will be the ‘last’ and the poor and oppressed shall be ‘first.’ If the self-righteous want a lesson on morality, then actually take a lesson from Jesus whose best friend was a former hooker and whose mother was a single parent.”

— Kent Marrero

 

60. “I hate it when people talk like friendship is less than other kinds of-as though it’s some sort of runner-up prize for people who can’t have sex. I had a boyfriend once, but I never liked being with him the way I like being with you.” I held his gaze, refusing to falter or look away.” You’re one of the best friends I’ve ever had, Milo. And that is everything to me.”

— R.J. Anderson

 

61. “She was spoiled, but she wasn’t lazy. She knew what she wanted, and because she believed absolutely that she could have everything she wanted if she tried hard enough to get it, she never stopped trying.”

— Cecily von Ziegesar

 

62. “Men pretend to be “just a friend” at first, even though they want to sleep with you from day one. Otherwise they wouldn’t be spending any time, money or attention on you, because these are limited resources and they need these resources to attract a mate. They can’t afford to squander them. So they apply these resources to the female that looks to be their best bet to get laid. But they also know that they can’t tell the woman on day one that they want to sleep with her, because she’d think it’s creepy. So they play along with the illusion that it’s “just a friendship” that “suddenly” developed into more, when the woman finally feels inclined to sleep with the guy “because they have a deep connection.” But that was really his goal from day one.”

— Oliver Markus

 

63. “Jordan, Attached, please find a copy of the schedule for our trip. Best Courtney.”I was really proud of it. The email i mean. Because it was so short and cold.Of course, it took me and my friend Jocelyn about two hours to come up with the perfect wording, but Jordan doesn’t know that.”

— Lauren Barnholdt

 

64. “The difference between your friend and your best friend is that your friend asks, ‘Are you are ok?’ and your best friend asks, ‘Do you want to talk about it?”

-sarvesh

 

67. “Because while we all Facebook stalk, protocol is to not admit it. I might know, from status update, that a potential best friend swims laps every mornings, but it’d be creep to say “Don’t worry about eating that doughnut, you deserve it after all those calories you burn!” Instead, I check out her profile and she reviews mine, but then we meet and pretend to know nothing.”

— Rachel Bertsche

 

68. “When I was eight, I found my best friend. Then, one day, I came home and she’d changed. During my absence, she’d become the most beautiful girl I’d ever seen in my life and I fell in love with her so completely that the very idea of ever being without her became an impossibility I couldn’t stand. That same girl has always been the only one to ever hold my heart in her hands. She’s the only one who can both build me and destroy me if she wishes and I wouldn’t change that for anything. I can’t live without her.” ~ Isaiah”

— Airicka Phoenix

 

69. “Here’s the thing about horses–evidently if they hang out together a lot, they buy into this whole “best friends forever” thing, and when one of them suddenly bolts, the other feels obligated to join in the fun and frolics.”

— Katie MacAlister

 

70. “Obviously, the choice between human selfishness and divine Selfishness is not about leaving or not leaving a relationship. More important are the day-to-day opportunities in the course of relationship. It is really the choice of living from the heart or living from fear. And how do you live from fear? Saying “yes” when your heart wants to say “no.” Saying “no” when your heart wants to say “yes.” By not listening to your heart (i.e., what is best for your soul), you compromise your truth, and cause suffering in the relationship. You may be afraid of hurting your friend. You may be afraid of losing their love and friendship. Whatever it is you are afraid of, it is still fear that is ruling you, rather than love.”

— Joyce Vissell

 

71. “A good friend…once told me, “The best way to look at this might be to recognize that you probably can’t fix these things. They’ll always be around. But maybe you can put your thumb on the scale a little for the people at the margins”

— J.D. Vance

 

72. “I take the view that God, in his infinite wisdom, didn’t bother to spring for two joints – heaven and hell. They’re the same place, but heaven is when you get everything you want and you meet Mommy and Daddy and your best friends and you all have a hug and a kiss and play your harps. Hell is the same place – no fire and brimstone – but they just all pass by and don’t see you. There’s nothing, no recognition. You’re waving, “It’s me, your father,” but you’re invisible. You’re on a cloud, you’ve got your harp, but you can’t play with nobody because they don’t see you. That’s hell.”

— Keith Richards

 

73. “Well, do as you think best. That’s every man’s right and duty. But for me, I pledge you now I will not surrender one grain of my rights. What I took, I took and by God, I’ll keep it, too. Take her home tomorrow, Archie, and never look back to watch what I do, for you know it before. I would not give him one knigh who had confided himself to me and none other, much less you. Only over my dead body,” said Hotspur hardily, eye to eye with the friend he had made under Homildon Hill, “will King Henry ever claim you as his prisoner.”

— Edith Pargeter

 

74. “He wants to dream like a young man with the wisdom of a old man, he wants his home and securities, he wants to live like a sailor at sea. Beautiful loser..where you gonna fall? When you realize you just can’t have it all, you just dont need it all. He is your oldest and your best friend, when you need him he’ll be there again, he is always willing to be second best, a perfect lodger; a perfect guest.”

— Bob Seger

 

75. “I always wanted a parabatai” she said a little wistfully. “Someone who is sworn to protect you and to watch your back. A best friend forever, for your whole life.”

— Cassandra Clare

 

76. “Being the only stranger at dinner with a group of girls who are already close friends doesn’t sound appealing at all. I’ll have to pretend to laugh at stories I don’t get about people I don’t know. I’ll probably stuff my face just to have something to do while they all gab about their ninth-grade English teacher or some other inside joke that makes me feel like an outsider. It’s hard to know how to behave in those situations. You can jump right in, asking “Who?” and “Where was this?” or you can sit back and let them have their laughs. I almost always opt for the latter, sometimes to my detriment. What I think is letting them have their fun, they might takes as she-thinks-she’s-too-cool.”

— Rachel Bertsche

— O, The Oprah Magazine

— Alice Hoffman

 

79. “It was my bad luck (considering Lee’s moral code was a bit sketchy) that I fell into Liam Nightingale’s Ethical Rule Book at Rule Number Two (with Rule Number One being “Thou shalt not nail your brother’s girlfriend”), I was “Thou shalt not nail your little sister’s best friend.”

— Kristen Ashley

 

80.”He’s out there. A guy out there was meant to be the love of your life, your best friend, your soulmate. The one you can tell your dreams to. He’ll brush your hair out of your eyes. Send you flowers when you least expect it. He’ll stare at you during the movies, even though he paid eight dollars to see it. He’ll call to say “Goodnight” or just because he is missing you. He’ll look in your eyes and tell you you’re the most beautiful girl in the world. And for the first time in your life, you’ll believe it.”

— Nicholas Sparks

 

81. “You know how there’s that one person who stumbles into your life and you instantly have a connection with them? Someone who’s a genuinely good person. Someone you just know you can build a great bond with, and it doesn’t have to be in a romantic way either.

It turns out blind Parker with a dead mom wasn’t nearly as much fun as she was before the accident. I couldn’t run around and play and I cried all the time and knocked over everything and turned into a royal bitch and one by one my friends disappeared until there were only two left. I’m not saying they were the only one who understood me or were nice, just that they were the ones who didn’t go off and find easier people to be friends with. I love Sarah because she’s been my best fiend and stayed that way when it got really really hard to be my friend at all.”

96. “It was one of the secret opinions, such as we all have, of Peter Brench, that his main success in life would have consisted in his never having committed himself about the work, as it was called, of his friend Morgan Mallow. This was a subject on which it was, to the best of his belief, impossible with veracity to quote him, and it was nowhere on record that he had, in the connexion, on any occasion and in any embarrassment, either lied or spoken the truth.

But our connection had nothing to do with our similarities, our differences, our aesthetic attractions, or our emotional and physical needs. When we spoke, he was truly with me. Our egos, our personas, expected social cues, the facades that everyone builds around them that are supposed to sculpt the way the world sees us, were stripped with Number 23 and I. He was immediately my best friend, familiar and safe – an epiphany that I had been spending my life alone in crowded rooms.
Our souls were naked. We initially curled into the warmth of that connection. But once we knew how real it was, we felt exposed, vulnerable, and raw. While his defense was his fearful recoil, mine was dictation.”

— Maggie Georgiana Young
