What better day to find some friendship quotes to share on Facebook with your favorite people than National Best Friends Day? Rounded up below are 12 heartwarming quotations that truly define what it means to be a friend to someone. From being able to talk about anything in the world to not having to say a word at all, a friend really is there for everything.

How often do we actually take the time to tell our closest friends — and yes, that definitely includes our very best friend — how much we appreciate them? If you are anything like me, it's not nearly often enough. True, they probably know it already, but why not remind them from time to time? If you're starting to feel a little guilt in this department right now, worry not, because today is your day.

Share a quote by tagging a friend on social media, texting one to your bestie, or even writing one in a card to drop in her mailbox (who doesn't love receiving surprise snail mail?). Chances are that you'll make her feel like a million bucks, and if you have a best friend, I'm guessing you wouldn't want to make her feel like anything less.
