75 Best Quotes about Love and Friendship to Express Your Love (2019)

Best Quotes about Love and Friendship to Express Your Love

People always try to compare friendship and love. They try to weigh the importance of friendship vs love. But what they forget is that there is love in friendship and there is friendship in love.

And at times, it is challenging to express either of them.

If you have true friends, love them and care for them. Because a friend is someone who will stay with you without any expectations, who knows everything about you and still accepts you as it is, who knows you are imperfect but never lets you feel awkward about it.

And when your true friend turns out to be someone with whom you are ready to spend your entire life, you have found a jackpot.

One is fortunate if he/she can find his/her soulmate in the form of a best friend. If you have someone like this in your life, please let them know how much you love them and how much you care about them.
