It’s said that friends are the family we choose. Our friends deserve a lot of love for doing crazy stuff with us, putting up with our crazies, being crazier so we look relatively less crazy, and being straight up phenomenal. Words can often fall short to define how much our ride-or-die buddy means to us. Fortunately, some greats have summed up our relationships with our besties in words.
