“I’ll be there for you…”
As I was flipping through the TV channels, the theme song of my favorite show, “Friends” was being aired. Oh! How many fond memories this very song brings to me. Friend, dost, amigo, van, arkadas, whatever the language may be, the sentiment is mutual universally and for me, personally, this significant bond can be described by the following 5 best quotes that will surely inspire you too.
5 Best Quotes on a friendship that will inspire you
1- ” Your friend is the one who mentions Allah to you in your presence and mentions you to Allah in your absence “
What could be better than having someone around you who not only cares for you in your presence but also prays for your well being in your absence, who is God-fearing himself and instills that in you too. Who is not just worried about your ‘Dunya’ but also your ‘akhirah’. Along with having that special person in your life, you can in turn be that ‘special someone’ for somebody. This is one of the best quotes among the list of 5.
2- ” The poor is one who does not have any friends”
People consider worldly riches as their everything. They can steal and kill for it. They can have sleepless nights and stressful days because of it but what is the use of all that when you do not have good friends to enjoy all those luxuries with. Imagine a multi-millionaire driving a Porsche, living in a mansion for a house and having every possible material thing money can buy, but at the end of the day, he does not have any friends; friends with whom he could vent out his stress, with whom he could be carefree. Loneliness can often lead to depression so ultimately would not that person be a ‘poor’ rich man?
3- “Lots of people will want to ride with you in the limo, but what you want is someone who will take the bus with you when the limo breaks down”
People come and people go. In this life, you make thousands of friends but the true ones are those who stay by your side, be it rain or shine. It is a fact that in dark times even your shadow leaves you. There are so many opportunists who identify themselves as your friends in times of comfort, but as soon as a crisis hits, they vanish. In times like these, people who stand by your side, shoulder to shoulder are your true friends.
4- “A true friend accepts who you are but also helps you become who you should be”
Nobody is born perfect or else we would have been angels. Every person has their strengths and weaknesses and that is how they should be accepted but the irony is that people are ready to judge each other, primarily on their flaws. They basically become the ‘moral police’. But even in this jungle of people, there are some gems who love and accept you the way you are. They make you feel comfortable in your own skin and recognize your soul, rather, by focusing and trying to enhance the positive traits in you and consequently bring out the best in you.
5- ” We will be best friends forever because you know too much about me”
Oh! That one friend who has shared your joys, your sadness, your highs and lows, your pranks, your mistakes, your adolescence, your crushes, your crankiness, and mood swings, but still somehow stood by your side. Not to forget that they have your goofiest pictures somewhere hidden in their galleries, which they can often blackmail you with. Now, who would want to lose such a friend? That friend should be by your side forever and ever.
