Quotes About Friendship Lost To Capture The Pain You Feel

Friendship is a valuable commodity.  But not all friendships are made to last forever.  Sometimes someone we once thought of so fondly is now thought of with hate and malice.  Other times, friends simply drift apart over the years until there’s no communication between the once “best friends.”

When a friendship stands the test of time, it is a rarity in life.  Unfortunately, everyone experiences the pain and hurt of losing a friend you thought of as a sister or a brother.  Those types of friendships can never really be replaced.

But, just as quickly as friendships can be destroyed, they can also be remade.  Here are 50 quotes about friendship lost.
