National Make a Friend Day: Best quotes and sayings about friendship

When it comes to holidays, February 11 is a biggy when it comes to holidays. Not only is it the refreshing National Peppermint Patty Day, Don't Cry Over Spilled Milk Day and Satisfied Staying Single Day, February 11 is also National Make a Friend Day!

Let's be honest. Many of us are overworked and just plain stressed out. We are busy leading such hectic lives, we barely have time for ourselves, much less maintaining old friendships. While the origins of this annual holiday are unknown, today serves as an important reminder on the value of friendship.

Whether old or new or somewhere in between, friends serve such an important role in our lives. Friends are our confidants. We can share our deepest, darkest secrets, our victories and our defeats. Real friends love us and like us for who we really are - the good, the bad and the ugly. And the older we get, the more valuable those friendships become.

In honor of National Make a Friend Day, today is the perfect opportunity to begin a new friendship and while you are at it, do something nice for an old friend today as well.
