1. “A friend is someone who helps you up when you’re down, and if they can’t, they lay down beside you and listen.” -Winnie the Pooh
There could be a whole list containing only Winnie the Pooh quotes. His friendships with Christopher Robin, Piglet, and Tigger inspired many a line that resonates forever. Some other favorites:
“If there ever comes a day when we can’t be together, keep me in your heart, I’ll stay there forever."
“If ever there is a tomorrow when we’re not together, there is something you must always remember: you are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.”
2. Life is better with your bestie beside you.
There's no doubt you are emboldened by the presence of your best friend. They can steel you through the most difficult traumas and rejoice with you during the most joyous celebrations.
3. “We made a deal ages ago. Men, babies, it doesn’t matter… We’re soulmates.” – Samantha, Sex and the City
Who doesn't want to have a group of girlies like Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte, and Miranda to toast Cosmos with and to get each other through all of life's curveballs?
4. "In rain or shine, you've stood by me girl. I'm happy at home.You're my best friend." - Queen
For your friend who has seen you through all the crap and all the good stuff (you know, rain and shine). No matter how long you go between visits, seeing this friend is like coming home.
5. “We’re sisters; you’re my family. What is you, is me. There’s nothing that you could ever say to make me let go.” – Blair Waldorf, Gossip Girl
Blair and Serena from Gossip Girl were BFFs. And rivals. But their friendship ran deep and at the end of the day they were always there for each other.
6. Wine always tastes better when paired with friends.
It's the perfect quote (and this is the perfect gif) to dedicate to your drinking BFF who is your fave person to open a bottle of wine with, toasting the good and lamenting the bad.
7. I love you more than ________.
Ice cream, vodka, Godiva chocolates, a massage, sleeping late, tomato soup... fill in the blank with anything you can think of to show your BFF how much they mean to you.
8. Friends from the beginning and always.
Great caption for your best friend from nursery school or the one you met on the first day of college. Old friends (and by old, I mean longtime) are the best!
9. Friends are like stars. You don't have to see them to know they are there.
Some friends you chat with every day and some you don't see for years, but the second you are back together you are gabbing as if a day hasn't gone by since you two last hung out. A Best Friends Day Instagram post is a great way to connect with those "once in a while" BFFs too.
10. Make new friends, but keep the old. Some are silver and the others gold.
This is a chant that every Girl Scout learns when she is a little Daisy Scout. It continues: "A circle is round, it has no end. That's how long I will be your friend." Such a sweet caption, especially if you and your BFF went through cookie sales and patch collecting together as littles.
