Friendship Quotes!
Warm and Wonderful Encouragement for Friends.

Do you like to encourage others with friendship quotes? One very simple and easy way to uplift someone's day is to send your Best Friend Sister a quote about friendship.

In fact, I hope you will use my email, and send me one of your favorite friendship quotes.

We can share them here. But let's be original and not copy someone else's
quote. OK? Thanks!

Then we can ALL be encouraged! Send something funny and the laughter will do us all good. Send us something serious, and that's fine, too.

Remember: your quotes on friendship to Elaine -- TODAY!

Some of you may not know the remarkable story of Helen Keller. She was born in Tuscumbia, in 1880, a city in North Alabama. Tom and I have visited her beloved Ivy Green, and enjoyed learning about this determined woman.

At 19 months she became very ill and lost the ability to see, hear and speak, but God blessed her with a very smart brain and a very big heart. Her teacher, Anne Sullivan, who became her best friend, was able to get Helen to understand that the motions she pushed on to the palms of her hands meant something -- they were words.

The sign language put on her hands, of course, changed Helen's life, and she has been counted as one of the most successful and treasured women in the world today, being the very first deaf/blind/mute person to earn a Bachelor of Arts degree.

Here is one of my very favorite friendship quotes:

The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart.

Helen Keller

Let's make this a quote about friendship:

Our closest friendships start with our minds, our hands and our mouths, but the true growth of that friendship can only be nurtured in the heart.

Elaine Kennelly

Beth Cape,Talented Artist and Best Friend! She shares her hundreds of wall murals and art designs with our church making our Pre-School Children's Dept. alive with the blessing of God! The very first time we met, be became instant friends.

Another world-famous writer is Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. He lived from 1807-1882 and was a college professor, but what he is known for is his
wonderful poems. Remember "Paul Revere's Ride" or The Song of Hiawatha? Here is one of my favorite friendship quotes from this distinguished author:

Take care of your garden and keep out the weeds; fill it up with sunshine, kind words and kind deeds.

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Let's make this another quote about friendship:

Best friend sisters grow through kind words and kind deeds; they bring
"funshine" and sunshine, as the sparkle of bright beads.

Elaine Kennelly

Being happy doesn't mean that everything is perfect. It means that you've decided to look beyond the imperfections.


Since no one is able to take credit for this quote on friendship, I am going to change it a bit:

Having a best friend friendship doesn't mean that everything is
perfect. It means that both of you have decided to look beyond your imperfections! We are both flawed perfection!

Elaine Kennelly

Happiness is like a must share it to enjoy it.

Author unknown

Of course, you know I am going to take the above and use it as a Something Sister friendship quote, and since the author is unknown, we can do that!

Being a Something Sister is like must share it with a Best Friend in order to enjoy it.

Elaine Kennelly

Robert Louis Stevenson lived a short life (1850-1894) but is a renowned novelist and poet. Two of his most famous books are Treasure Island and The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. He was also a musical composer.

Here is a beautiful and famous friendship quote from his writings:

A friend is somebody who loves us with understanding, as well as emotion.

Robert Louis Stevenson

A friend is someone who loves us with understanding, as we go through the trials of our lives, as well as the happiness of our lives.

Elaine Kennelly

This is a WOW quote on friendship:

Friends are an indispensable part of a meaningful life. They are the ones who share our burdens and multiply our blessings. A true friend sticks by us in our joys and sorrows. In good times and bad, we need friends who will pray for us, listen to us, and lend a comforting hand and an understanding ear when needed.

Beverly LaHaye

This friendship quote was on a birthday card that I sent to Marnie Smith, one of my dearest Something Sisters, and she and I share one of the longest friendships of my life. She and I went to college together, and she is one of the infamous Beach Beauties!

Truly great friends are hard to find, difficult to leave, and impossible to forget.

C. Randolph

Truly great friends are great because we work at keeping a friendship. We never have to worry about leaving or forgetting!

Elaine Kennelly

Here's one of my favorite friendship quotes, probably because I like to dance, and I also have spent a lot of time in the shadows.

A friend is someone who dances with you in the sunlight and walks with you in the shadows.

Author Unknown

A friend is one who joyfully sings with you when you are on the mountain top
and silently walks beside you through the valley.

William A. Ward

Shared joy is double joy; shared sorrow is half sorrow. Swedish Proverb

Love begins when a person feels another person's need to be as important
as his own.

Harry Stack Sullivan

The first duty of love is to listen

Paul Tillich

No friendship is an accident. O Henry

If we would build on a sure foundation in friendship, we
must love friends for their sake rather than for our own.

Charlotte Bronte

Friendship is the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe
with a person, having neither to weigh thoughts nor
measure words.

George Eliot

True friendship comes when silence between two people is comfortable.

Dave Tyson Gentry
