World has been observing International Friendship day since 1958. On this day, which roughly falls on August’s first Sunday in India, one commemorates years-long friendship or secluded souls do initiate a ‘new one’ with a resolution to go together till eternity. Friendship Day has evolved from handwritten notes, exchanging greeting cards and colourful friendship bands to messages on social media platforms.  However, the essence of this special day of Friendship remains the same. As friendship day nears, social media is buzzing with quotes and messages dedicated to friends.

Here are some quotes to celebrate friendship day and to add a personal touch to your friend’s life-

  • A real friend is one who walks in when the rest of the world walk out.
  • Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another, ‘What! You too? I thought I was the only one.
  • A bond that is cherished for life, through thick and thin, 24/7 and 365 days, friends are your constant.
  • Friends are all relationships rolled into one.
  • Growing apart doesn’t change the fact that for a long time we grew side by side; our roots will always be tangled. I’m glad for that.
  • Let us be grateful to the people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.
  • Friendship is the only cement that will ever hold the world together.
  • When sad or glad, a friend alone is a sanctuary.
  • A true friend is like a four-leaf clover, hard to find and lucky to have.
  • Good friends are like stars. You don’t always see them, but you know they’re always there.
  • Friends are flowers in the garden of life.

Moreover, in the year 2011, UN proclaimed International Day of Friendship with the idea that friendship, which transpires, between peoples, countries, and cultures can bring peace in the society.

It bolsters one’s respect for diversity and engrosses in youngsters the idea to be compatible and sensitive. Imagine, what would happen to migrant crisis if the idea of friendship takes over xenophobia? What made Russia counter US’ Seventh fleet for India? What compels Turkey to stand behind Pakistan? It has always been ‘friendship’.  

If not planned yet, you still have time to figure out something that will make your friend feel special and make your day a memorable one. Your go-to shopping can range between greeting card shop to gadgets’ park.
