Friends is full of quotes that fans still repeat today. "Pivot, pivot It's a known fact that lobsters fall in love and mate for life. You can actually see.

Where would you be without your BFF?

Childhood friends. School friends. Neighborhood friends. College friends. Work friends. Best friends. Boyfriends. Girlfriends.

We work our entire lives building friendships — from preschool, where we all learn that "it takes a friend to make a friend," through adulthood, where we mingle at bars and water coolers.

All of us crave closeness with other human beings. We just need to know there's someone out there who gets us. And sharing your thoughts with the help of some inspirational, cute and positive friendship quotes is a creative way to show how much you care about your BFFs.

Whether we have a small group of close friends or an expanded group of personalities, each of our friendships brings something new to our lives, inspiring us to see the world a totally different way, giving us a new shoulder to lean on, and a new cheerleader to root us on.

Friendships come in all sorts of forms: serious ones, like the college friend you discuss politics with, silly ones, like the squad you do Halloween with, chill ones like your wine and Netflix buddy. Some friendships even turn into something more.

Each friendship offers something totally unique and irreplaceable. And each friendship in our life ultimately makes us who we are.
