National Best Friends Day


“A real friend walks in when the rest of the world walks out.”

— Walter Winchell (1897 – 1972)

American newspaper gossip columnist


We are richer than rich when we have best friends.

We need not agree with our best friends, but we’ll always have each other’s back.

They love us when we’re unlovable.

They encourage us if we’re ever in doubt.

They get us through the toughest times.

They remind us that we are indeed worthy.

They respect us for who we are.

If best friends get separated and reunite, it’s as if we were never apart at all.


Thank you, thank you, thank you… to best friends everywhere!
