True Friendship Quotes

Every relation has its own importance in one's life and the role played by them is beyond the capability to be expressed in words. A true friend is also another important thread in our life, who keeps our sanity intact in the world full of confusions and indecisions. He is always by your side, in happiness or in sorrow and thereby making the journey of life interesting. Just like love, friendship knows no boundaries of age, nationality, color, caste and social class.
