They say you should measure your life not by the number of years you live, but by the number of true friends that you make during your lifetime. This Entertainism article gives you quotes from movies that have immortalized friendship.
The language of friendship is not words but meanings.
Henry David Thoreau
Friendship is forever. And even though forever may be too good to be true, friends are people who make forever worthwhile. With friends, even forever seems like a short span of time. Your family was chosen for you by God, but your friends are the family you choose for yourself. After your family, it is true friends and true friendship which will help you swim the deepest oceans of grief and fly the highest skies of joy. Friendship is forever, friendship is special.
