If the last year has taught us anything, it’s the importance of friendship. How we’ve missed the closeness of special friends – the ones who always offer support and encouragement, who know when to listen and just what to say, and make you smile even in the darkest moments. With 8th June marking National Best Friends Day, we’ve rounded up a few of our favourite quotes, sayings and a poem on the subject…
Success by Edgar A. Guest
I hold no dream of fortune vast, Nor seek undying fame. I do not ask when life is past That many know my name. I may not own the skill to rise To glory’s topmost height, Nor win a place among the wise, But I can keep the right. And I can live my life on earth Contented to the end, If but a few shall know my worth And proudly call me friend.

“True friends are the ones who lift you up when no one else has noticed you’ve fallen.” Unknown

“Friendship is the only cement that will ever hold the world together.” Woodrow T Wilson
