If you’ve ever been stumped thinking of birthday quotes for a friend on his or her big day, you’re not alone. Let's face it: A lot of birthday quotes out there have a certain tone that verges on either embarrassingly cheesy or overly sentimental. But no one wants to send their close pal a cliché or boring happy birthday message either (and goodness knows there's more than enough of those). So if you're on the hunt for beautiful birthday quotes for friends instead, you definitely came to the right place.
You might recall that we've already brought you quotes about gratitude and quotes to share with a wonderful daughter-in-law. Of course, best friend birthday quotes cover totally different ground. Rather than a specific topic, these quotes focus on one special day — so why not share appropriately special quotes with your friend? You might be tempted to simply say, "Happy birthday, beautiful friend!" But deep down, you know your BFF deserves to hear something beyond that.
You might be wondering what makes birthday quotes for a friend so beautiful in the first place. If we're being honest, it's not so much a formula as it is an art form of adding warm wishes, inspiring messages, and an encouraging afterthought that will leave a smile on his or her face for the rest of the day. And who knows? After you get done reading these, they might make you grin enough to want to hear them on your birthday, too.
From funny birthday quotes to sweet birthday quotes, these birthday quotes for best friends are anything but the typical lines you're used to reading in a birthday card or on a "happy birthday" message in your Facebook feed. Heck, you might even be tempted to say these birthday quotes to a friend out loud (we won't judge — just be sure to remember the name of the person who originally said the quote!).
