what is a best friend?

For me, a best friend is someone you love above all your other friends. It is the friend you most confide in and want to be with. When you are separated from this friend, you really feel rotten and hurt. When this friend is angry at you and threatens not to be your friend, you are in despair. Often, a spouse is a person's best friend, which makes sense because they are the ones that are closest to you.

True friendship is like sound health, the value of it is seldom known until it is lost." - Charles Caleb Colton "A real friend is one who walks in when the rest of the world walks out." - Anon "Don't walk in front of me, I may not follow. Don't walk behind me, I may not lead. Walk beside me and be my friend." - Albert Camus "Friends are the bacon bits in the salad bowl of life." - Anon "Friendship is one mind in two bodies." - Mencius "If you should die before me, ask if you can bring a friend." - Stone Temple Pilots "If all my friends were to jump off a bridge, I wouldn't jump with them, I would be at the bottom to catch them." - Anon "Everyone hears what you say. Friends listen to what you say. Best friends listen to what you don't say." - Anon "We all take different paths in life, but no matter where we go, we take a little of each other everywhere." -Tim McGraw "Many people will walk in and out of your life, but only true friends will leave footprints in your heart." - Anon "Surround yourself only with people who are going to lift you higher." Remember, we all stumble, every one of us. That's why it is a comfort to go hand in hand." ~Emily Kimbrough~ "People are like stained glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within." ~Elizabeth Kubler-Ross~ If you have one true friend, you have more than your share. ~Thomas Fuller~ “When it hurts to look back, and you're scared to look ahead, you can look beside you and your best friend will be there.” "Together forever, never apart. Maybe in distance, but never in heart.” "Promise you won't forget me, because if I thought you would, I'd never leave." ~Winnie the Pooh~ "A real friend is one who walks in when the rest of the world walks out." ~Walter Winchell~ If all my friends were to jump off a bridge, I would not follow, I would be at the bottom to catch them when they fall. ~Source Unknown~ "If I had one gift that I could give you, my friend, it would be the ability to see yourself as others see you, because only then would you know how extremely special you are." ~B.A. Billingsly~ "A true friend is someone who knows there's something wrong even when you have the biggest smile on your face." “The best kind of friend is the kind you can sit on a porch and swing with, never say a word, and then walk away feeling like it was the best conversation you've ever had.” ~Unknown~ "It is by chance we met . . . By choice we became friends." "Tears may come and go, But there's one thing I know. All my life you're a friend of mine. You can depend on me. I'll be fine... 'Cause you're a friend of mine." -Clarence Clemens “One can't complain. I have my friends. Why, someone spoke to me only yesterday.” ~Eeyore~ “Friends are those rare people who ask how you are and then wait to hear the answer” “How lucky I am to have known someone who was so hard to say goodbye to” ~Unknown~ "Walking with a friend in the dark is better than walking alone in the light." ~Helen Keller~ "A circle is round it has no end, that's how long I want to be your friend!" ~Anonymous~ "It takes years to build up trust, and just seconds to destroy it." ~Source Unkn
