19 BFF quotes that perfectly sum up your relationship

We read a meme once that said best friends are like a good bra: It’s hard to find one that fits, but once you do, they support you, lift you up, and are always close to your heart.

But unlike a bra, true friendships never wear out. Even across large distances, a BFF will always be there for you through the good times or to text you a “WTF” and an angry emoji during the bad times. That’s what makes having one so important. Whether you’ve been friends for decades or just a short while, these BFF quotes are made for sharing with your bestie.

These are your people, your middle-of-the-night, no-matter-what people.” — Shauna Niequist, Bittersweet: Thoughts on Change, Grace, and Learning the Hard Way
