15 Famous Quotes on Friendship

 

It’s been a while since I’ve done a ‘famous quotes‘ compilation so I culled through hundreds of quotes on ‘friendship’ last night, and these wee the fifteen that resonated most. I then overlaid the quote onto a picture because what would a Sifter post without images be?

If you have any personal favourites to add, let me know in the comments! If there are enough I can update the post or do a part II :)
