My Piece of Paradise
Friendship Quotes

And we sat there, on the school bench, laughing and joking. And it was that moment when I realised, this is it. This is the last time we'll ever be together, sitting in our group of friendship. But I knew, even though we wouldn't be together in person, we'd always be together in heart. That's what real friendship is.- alice1989 (on bolt)

 

The bond that developed between us was really no different than those that bind us all. None of us is alone. We are not random dots of dust floating aimlessly without any greater purpose; we are all here for each other.-Brooke and Jean Ellison (Miracles Happen)

 

I came to you today for help. I walked up, and without a word, you knew what I needed. A friend, a shoulder to cry on. No words were spoken and I've never felt better in my life.-Michelle Burns

 

Even though life is like a roller coaster, having a best friend means that there's always someone beside you to scream, laugh, and hold your hand.-Kierna Mayo

 

The process of becoming best friends is actually a lot like what happens at the start of a romantic relationship.  You meet, "date",and "fall in love".-Kierna Mayo

 

It's our best friends who first teach us how to be selfless--how to give the purest part of ourselves without the expectation of getting anything in return.-Kierna Mayo

 

We may not have it all together, but together we have it all.

 

It’s not so much as dying for a friend, it’s finding a friend worth dying for.

 

Friends show us who we are, who we were, and who we are to become.

 

That night we talked. About life. About our times together. Maybe we weren't the same two kids we had once been. But some things never change. Some things last. And even though I didn't know what was going to happen to us, or where we were going... I just knew I couldn't let him out of my life.

 

I argue with him like he's my brother, I flirt with him like the friend he is, but I love him like something he'll never be. What he is now is all I'm going to see and all he's ever going to be is another friend, but one that means the world to me

 

It’s just something that happens as you grow up.  You realize it’s less important to have more friends and more important to have real ones

 

I look at all the pictures of the past, thinking of how the years went by so fast. The dances, the parties, the pictures, the laughs. The shoulders to cry on and cute photographs. The people I've known since way back when. The new kids came every now and then. The friendships you make come and go. But there’s always those few you'll always know. Now as we go our separate ways, I know I'll always remember these days

 

I wish we'd grow old friends together. We would hang out and talk and maybe we could bring our grandchildren along, and when they ask us how long we've been friends. We’ll smile and say almost forever

 

Please don't try to argue, but try to understand...that time can change two people like the tide can change the sand. Our friendship has been lovely, but you see it just wouldn't do. For now I see you in a different way. I've fallen in love with you.

 

When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives mean the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand. The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing, not curing, not healing and face with us the reality of our powerlessness, that is a friend who cares.

 

Friends are the reason why even at the saddest part of my life, I smile. Why even at my confusion, I understand. Why even at betrayal, I trust. Why even in fear of pain, I love

 

In the rhythm of life, we sometimes find ourselves out of tune. But as long as there are friends to provide the melody, the music plays on. Thanks for being one of my songs

 

A friend helps you up when you fall. A best friend pisses himself from laughing, calls you an asshole, helps you up, then trips you again.

 

After all we've been through together. Good times, bad times, arguments, laughter...growing up. I've watched you change. I've watched you slowly grow apart from me. I've watched you make mistakes and bad decisions. You got mad at me for worrying. Then you decided to forget all the years we've shared together as best friends...all for this new life of yours that will one day, be full of regrets. I know you're gonna get yourself into trouble. I can see it coming. I know you're gonna need a shoulder to cry on...when you can't find one you're gonna come to me. And well...I just want to let you know, that after all the shit you've put me through, I'll always understand why you did the things you did...you don't have to explain yourself to me. And I'll always be there for you. Always love you...And I'll be there when you need a shoulder to cry on

 

To be honest with you, I don't have the right words to say to make you feel better, but I do have arms to give you a hug, ears to listen to whatever you want to talk about, and a heart, a heart that is aching to see you smile again

 

It's hard to love someone who's in love with someone else, you have to ignore the pain and swallow your pride. Just to be a friend... but that's all worth it because sometimes friendship lasts longer than love.

 

As I look back on all that's happened...growing up, growing together, changing you, changing me- there were times when we dreamed together, when we laughed and cried together. As I look back on those days, I realize how much I truly miss you and how much I truly love you. The past may be gone forever...and what the future holds, our todays make the memories of tomorrow. So, my lifetime friend, it is with all my heart that I send you my love, hoping that you'll always carry my smile with you, for all that we meant to each other and for whatever the future may hold

 

It's not how long we've known each other, it's how well.

 

For all of the times I never said what I really felt, thanks for all the times you understood.

 

The friends who grew up with you deserve special respect. The ones who stuck by you shoulder to shoulder, in a time when nothing was certain. All life lay ahead and every road led home

 

it's been quite awhile… I must say I miss our friendship. I miss you, but what I really miss the most is not just you or us, but how it all was. Perfect again

 

And so it comes just as it is, a day no longer here. And through my trembling fingertips, the memories of the year I try not to wave farewell to all our dreams, I will forget you never, I wonder if the crazy times will stay with you forever? But as I cry in pain of losing you, my dear and such good friend, I will not close the book and say farewell, this is the end For goodbyes create swift hellos, and days from now you’ll see, That though it hurts to say goodbye, your friend I’ll always be.

 

True friendship is when two friends can walk in opposite directions, yet remain side by side.

 

The rain falls regardless if you have a coat or not but one thing always holds true, someone somewhere is willing to get soaked with you.

 

The young faces in these pictures represent times when our biggest worries were Barbie and Ken's wedding, GI Joe's missing arm, and why we had to eat vegetables at dinner again. Looking at these pictures today, sometimes we, the seniors, wish we could go back to such carefree days. But at the same, time moving on with our lives, making new memories, and gaining independence have become exciting realities that were once ideas that seemed so far away. Since sixth grade we have counted down the days until graduation. Now as the day approaches we are still anxious, but somewhat nervous. The faces in these pictures remind us of the people we once were and still are, the friends we have grown up with and also whom we will graduate with. Surviving the past 12 years wasn't easy, but in that time we had some of the best experiences of our lives. Those times are what made it worthwhile.

 

Let's face it... we've changed. We all changed. Somewhere between summer ending and school starting, we've all gone in our own directions. Hearts were broken, friends diminished, new love started and new people came into our lives. We no longer spend all of our time in our circle of friends, we no longer talk for hours about nothing at all. We've changed - some for the better, some for the worse. Some of us are finding love and others are trying to let go. Even though we've changed, we all know that even though we're all finding our own place in the world, that when we find a love, when we let go of a love, when the tears fall, or the happy smile spreads across our face... we'll come to each other because no matter where this crazy world takes us and no matter what happens, nothing will ever change so much to the point that we're not all friends forever.

 

Sure, you're supposed to have total recall of who won the Battle of Hastings and what motivated Hamlet. And probably you should be able to label all five Great Lakes. Perhaps you can...Perhaps it's easier to remember that first kiss. Or the time you and your friends couldn't stop laughing in math class. Or your locker combination or cafeteria mystery meat or the scintillating scent in the air when you-know-who glided past your desk... Or maybe it's easier to remember the thrill of passing the final or the fun of the last homecoming game or hugging your best friends in the world goodbye and knowing you'd be in touch forever... But still, wondering just a little...Will we always remember?

 

Remember when you thought boys had cooties...when friends were new, dreams were un-shattered and worries few...when recess was too short and life was too long...decisions came easily without need to belong...when storks delivered the babies and passions weren't so strong...friendships were un-broken...right was right, and wrong was wrong...when bad things didn't happen...when only skinned knees brought tears and the night light in it's socket quieted all our fears...when farewell meant just for summer and real friends didn't part...the fun went on forever and never left a broken heart.

 

Sometimes you need to run away to see who will follow you.

A guy and a girl can just be friends...but at one point or another they will fall for each other.... maybe temporarily, maybe at the wrong time, maybe too late, or maybe forever

Somehow the conversation mentioned your name and someone asked if I knew you. Looking away I had a thought of all the times we had together, sharing laughter, tears, jokes and tons more...and then, without explanation you were gone. I looked to where they were waiting for an answer and said softly, 'Once I thought I did'

Best friends hang tough. They don't come with ‘Fragile’ stickers and are not easily scared off, or ticked off. Best friends help you out whenever they can, make time for you even when they don't have any, and trust your friendship enough to say ‘No’. Best friends are cross-your-heart-and-hope-to-die, good-times-and-bad-times, borrow-anything, tell-you-everything, trust-you-with-their-deepest-darkest-secrets, always-and-forever friends.

What if you knew the next time you saw me would be the last? Would you apologize for the mean things you've said? Would you laugh at all the good times we've had? Would you cry when I left? A true friend would do this, right? Wrong, a true friend would never let me go.

Smiles, tears, giggles, and laughs. Late night phone calls and cute photographs, I'll be there for you until the day of my death, best friends forever... Till our very last breath.

 

Friends find the beautiful things in us that no one else looks hard enough to find

 

You know when someone’s your friend when you can have a big smile on your face and they still know something's wrong

 

They say true friends stab you in the front, but I believe true friends shouldn't stab you at all

Being a friend means mastering the art of timing. There is a time for silence. A time to let go and allow people to hurl themselves into their own destiny, and a time to pick up the pieces when it’s all over

It hurts to fall in love with a friend. You keep on hiding your feelings, avoiding it as mush as possible, till you cry your heart out of fear of losing a friend and a love you never really had

Somewhere between the procrastination... and the homework... and the incessant forwards... and the friendships... and the calls to each other complaining about crushes... Somewhere between the phone calls to old friends... And the "I miss you”s, the "I love you”s, and the "What are we doing tonight?"s...And somewhere between all of the changing and growing... Somewhere between the classes... And the skipping classes... And the studying for tests... And the pretending to study for tests... And the downright NOT studying for tests... I forgot... I forgot what high school is all about. I forgot what it meant to cry... I forgot that pretending to be happy doesn't make you happy... And that pretending to be smart doesn't make you smart... I forgot that you can't just forget the past in fear of the future... I forgot that you can't control falling in love... And that you can't make yourself fall in love... I learned that I can love... I learned that it's okay to mess up... And it's okay to ask for help... And it's okay to feel like crap... I learned it's okay to complain and whine to all your friends for a whole day... I learned that sometimes the things you want most you just can't have. I learned that the greatest thing about high school isn't the parties or the drinking or the hook-ups... It's the friendships, which means taking chances... I learned that sometimes the things we want to forget are the things which we most need to talk about... I learned that letters from friends are the most important things... And that sending cards to your friends makes you feel better. But, basically, I just learned that my friends... Both old and new... Are the most important people to me in the world. AND... without them, I wouldn't be who I am today. So this is a thank you to all of my friends... For always being there. And even if we're not on good terms or we have lost touch... I still care for you... Always and forever love all you guys

We've gone our separate ways and I know it’s for the best, but sometimes I wonder, will I ever have friends like you again?
