Happy friendship day 2018 quotes wishes

A bond of friendship is a bond that is not easily created nor easily broken. While acquaintances may be a dime a dozen, such is not the case with true friends.. Here is the best friendship day 2018 quotes, messages, wishes, sayings, songs and poems for facebook , twitter and whatsapp along with friendship day 2018 images

Many quotes describe a friend as someone who will be there in good times and bad times alike. Often, the good times will be referred to as “light” and the bad as “dark”.

And of course, there are quotes and sayings that don’t quite place as high of value on friendship as other quotes do.

But those are generally the exceptions rather than the rule.

Friendship themes have been an essential piece of the film and music industries. Some of the greatest movies ever made hinge on these themes – even if the friends aren’t human. In the Star Wars saga, the bond between the droids C-3PO and R2-D2 provides an interesting dynamic throughout the films. R2-D2, one hand, is bold and adventurous, while C-3PO is timid and cautious. Between the two there is often disagreement and you could say some argument, too.

I’ve just about had enough of you. Go that way. You’ll be malfunctioning within a day, you near-sighted scrap pile. And don’t let me catch you following me begging for help because you won’t get it.
– C-3PO, Star Wars, 1977

But they were the best of friends, nonetheless.

Two holidays have been created over the past century to especially celebrate friends. The first Friendship Day was established in 1919 by Joyce Hall, the founder of Hallmark Cards. The date of this holiday was ratified in 1935 by Congress, and is set on the first Sunday of every August. Most countries that celebrate the holiday observe it on this date. In 2011, the United Nations established a separate date for International Friendship Day, and it is set each year on July 30.

The International Day of Friendship was proclaimed in 2011 by the UN General Assembly with the idea that friendship between peoples, countries, cultures, and individuals can inspire peace efforts and build bridges between communities.

Friendship day 2018 poems and songs

Some other folks might be
A little bit smarter than I am
Bigger and stronger too
Maybe
But none of them
Will ever love you the way I do
It’s me and you
And as the years go by
Our friendship will never die
You’re gonna see, it’s our destiny
You’ve got a friend in me.
– Randy Newman, Toy Story Theme Song, 1995

What would you do if I sang out of tune?
Would you stand up and walk out on me?
Lend me your ears and I’ll sing you a song,
And I’ll try not to sing out of key

Oh, I get by with a little help from my friends,
I get high with a little help from my friends,
Gonna try with a little help from my friends.

No one could ever know me,
no one could ever see me,
Since you’re the only one who knows, what it’s like to be me,
Someone to face the day with, make it through all the rest with,
Someone I’ll always laugh with,
Even at my worst, I’m best with you, yeah
– The Rembrandts, I’ll be There for You, 1994

Sometimes in our lives
We all have pain, we all have sorrow
But if we are wise
We know that there’s always tomorrow.

And I’ll be your friend, I’ll help you carry on
For it won’t be long

I guess I was wrong,
I just don’t belong,
But then I’ve been there before,
Everything’s alright,
I’ll just say goodnight and I’ll show myself to the door.
Hey I didn’t mean,
To cause a big scene,
Just give me an hour and then,
I’ll be as high as that Ivory Tower,
And you’ll never know.

‘Cause I got friends in low places,
Where the whiskey drowns,
And the beer chases my blues away,
But I’ll be okay.
Now I’m not big on social graces,
Think I’ll slip on down to the oasis,
Oh I got friends,
In low places.
– Garth Brooks, Friends in Low Places, 1990

You just call out my name,
And you know where ever I am,
I’ll come running to see you again.

All you have to do is call,
And I’ll be there, yeah, yeah,
You’ve got a friend.

All away from New Orleans,
We’d tell stories ’round the campfire late at night,
When it was down to just you and me.

I’ll sing this song to show,
You were a good friend.

Crying all the time.

And you ain’t no friend of mine.

And if I should ever go away,
Well, then close your eyes and try,
To feel the way we do today,
And then if you can remember.

Keep smiling, keep shining,
Knowing you can always count on me, for sure,
That’s what friends are for.
For good times and bad times,
I’ll be on your side forever more,
That’s what friends are for.

Your time has come to shine,
All your dreams are on their way,
See how they shine.

I’m sailing right behind.
