quotes about friendship

I’ve become skeptical of the unwritten rule that just because a boy and girl appear in the same feature, a romance must ensue. Rather, I want to portray a slightly different relationship, one where they two mutually inspire each other to live. If I’m able to, then perhaps I’ll be closer to portraying a true expression of love.
—  Hayao Miyazaki
God, I miss you. I miss the curve of your spine, the taste of your lips, the smell of your skin. I miss you on warm mornings. I miss you on cold nights. I wake up wishing you were here, and fall asleep knowing that you’re not.
—  K.B.
Some friends don’t understand this. They don’t understand how desperate I am to have someone say, I love you and I support you just the way you are because you’re wonderful just the way you are. They don’t understand that I can’t remember anyone ever saying that to me. I am so demanding and difficult for my friends because I want to crumble and fall apart before them so that they will love me even though I am no fun, lying in bed, crying all the time, not moving. Depression is all about If you loved me you would.
—  Elizabeth Wurtzel, Prozac Nation
No matter where you are, when it is, or what you’ve done to me, know that I’ll be there.
