Friendship Day 2020: Quotes to share with friends

Share

Friends are the people that bring joy into our lives and stick by us, no matter what the situation. They might not exactly be family, but the relationships we make with them, share just the same amount of love, if not more. The bonds of friendship we form through the course of our lives, enrich us, and make us more well-rounded human beings.

Each year, on the first Sunday of August, National Friendship Day is celebrated in India in honour of the love we share with our friends. This year, Friendship day will be on August 2. Considering the lockdown that is in effect and the fact going out in public to celebrate this day could be potentially injurious to health, here are some quotes you can share with your friends to get into the spirit of celebration.
