I've learned that there are many good friends around, but true best friends are hard to come by.
I've learned that sometimes you love a best friend more than a girlfriend.
I've learned that you can do something or nothing with a best friend and still have the best time.
I've learned that a true friendship has many memories, both good and bad, but all important.
I've learned that sometimes the most used part of a best friend is the shoulder you cry on, and the shoulder you are willing to lend.
I've learned that when a best friend is happy, you find yourself happy too, even when it has nothing to do with you.
I've learned that a best friend's family soon feels like your own.
I've learned that the only one who truly understands is a true friend.
I've learned that nothing ever sounds stupid, funny, or unbelievable to a best friend, and you never feel stupid saying whatever it is.
I've learned that sometimes it feels like a best friend is the only one who will ever care about you and think you are beautiful in your own way.
I've learned that you always have that something extra to give to a best friend in need, and can count on that in return.
I've learned that your heart is forever touched by a true friend, no matter how things end up.
I've learned that when your heart has been broken, a best friend is the best band-aid for it.
I've learned that a best friend will call you in the middle of the night to talk without thinking, and it's OK.
I've learned that in many cases, a hug and a kind word from a best friend is the only thing that helps get you through the day.
I've learned that a best friend would stick up for you no matter what the consequences are.
I've learned that best friends can sing at the top of their lungs and not worry about singing the wrong words or being out of tune.
I've learned that best friends stay up all night and on the phone for hours talking without even realizing it.
I've learned that a best friend can tell the difference between a silly crush, and more than that.
I've learned that sometimes a best friend is all you have.
I've learned that sometimes you wonder how she knew, but then you realize that's just how close you are.
I've learned that when you are true best friends, everyone else knows it.
I've learned that, most importantly of all, best friends will always be best friends, no matter what is happening in their lives, where they are, or what they are doing. A best friend is irreplaceable. This is the most important thing I could have ever been taught by a best friend
