Female Friendship quotes by Kate Cooper
#1. The new ideal of virginity and widowhood opened up a new era of sympathetic collaboration between men and women, and for male-female friendship. By establishing a category of women who were understood to be off-limits with respect to romantic entanglements, writers like Gregory were able to support and even celebrate a feminine version of Christianity without being afraid to seem as if they had fallen under the influence of feminine charms. #Quote by Kate Cooper
Female Friendship quotes by Allie Larkin
#2. We checked ourselves in the mirror before we left. We were flushed and a little rumpled, but in a good way. We looked vibrant, wild, happy. The hair and the clothes and the makeup made me feel like someone new, but the happy is what made me unrecognizable. #Quote by Allie Larkin
Female Friendship quotes by Maggie Shipstead
#3. Female friendship was one-tenth prevention and nine-tenths cleanup. #Quote by Maggie Shipstead
Female Friendship quotes by Jenny Slate
#4. The women were new friends but I loved them in a massive way. The love was like a large trove of devotion that could only be amassed over time, but it had arrived all at once. The way I loved them felt like it was from long ago. #Quote by Jenny Slate
Female Friendship quotes by Zooey Deschanel
#5. Girls get competitive, as though there's only one spot in the world for everything _ but that's not true. We need to stick together and see there's more to life than pleasing men. It's important not to cut yourself off from female friendships. I think sometimes girls get scared of other girls, but you need each other. #Quote by Zooey Deschanel
Female Friendship quotes by Virginia Woolf
#6. And I tried to remember any case in the course of my reading where two women are represented as friends. (...) almost without exception they are shown in their relation to men. (...) [women in fiction were] not only seen by the other sex, but seen only in relation to the other sex. And how small a part of a woman's life is that #Quote by Virginia Woolf
Female Friendship quotes by Sloane Crosley
#7. I thought we had reached an understanding, the institution of marriage and I. Weddings are like the triathalon of female friendship: the Shower, the Bachelorette Party, and the Main Event. It's the Iron Woman and most people never make it through. They fall of their bikes and choke on ocean water. #Quote by Sloane Crosley
Female Friendship quotes by Drew Barrymore
#8. I like so many different kinds of chick flicks. I like rom-coms, I like female friendship movies. #Quote by Drew Barrymore
Female Friendship quotes by Victoria Secunda
#9. It helps enormously to have had a loving mother. Mothers can give their daughters permission to love their fathers. Mothers can help their daughters feel good about becoming mothers. Mothers can help daughters learn the value of openness and female friendship, especially when times are bad, #Quote by Victoria Secunda
Female Friendship quotes by Reese Witherspoon
#10. I don't know what I would have done so many times in my life if I hadn't had my girlfriends. #Quote by Reese Witherspoon
Female Friendship quotes by Carol Storm
#11. Feelings are never silly, dearest. #Quote by Carol Storm
Female Friendship quotes by Margaret Atwood
#12. I consider telling my brother, asking him for help. But tell him what exactly? I have no black eyes, no bloody noses to report: Cordelia does nothing physical. If it was boys, chasing or teasing, he would know what to do, but I don't suffer from boys in this way. Against girls and their indirectness, their whisperings, he would be helpless. #Quote by Margaret Atwood
Female Friendship quotes by Sloane Crosley
#13. I was stunned. I pulled the phone away and looked quizzically at the hole-punched speaker. Aside from the blood obligation to be my sister's maid of honor, it had never occured to me that I would get asked to be in anyone's wedding. I thought we had reached an understanding, the institution of marriage and I. Weddings are the like the triathlon of female friendship: the Shower, the Bachelorette Party, and the Main Event. It's the Iron Woman and most people never make it through. They fall off their bikes or choke on ocean water. I figured if I valued my life, I'd stay away from weddings and they'd stay away from me. #Quote by Sloane Crosley
Female Friendship quotes by Samuel Johnson
#14. He endearing elegance of female friendship. #Quote by Samuel Johnson
Female Friendship quotes by Tanja Taaljard

Female Friendship quotes by Sally Rooney
#17. You can love more than one person, she said. That's arguable. Why is it any different from having more than one friend? You're friends with me and you also have other friends, does that mean you don't really value me? I don't have other friends, I said. #Quote by Sally Rooney
Female Friendship quotes by Jamaica Kincaid
#18. When I looked at them sitting around me, the church in the distance, beyond that our school, with throngs of girls crossing back and forth in the schoolyard, beyond that the world, how I wished that everything would fall away, so that suddenly we'd be sitting in some different atmosphere, with no future full of ridiculous demands, no need for any sustenance save our love for each other, with no hindrance to any of our desires, which would, of course, be simple desires - nothing, nothing, just sitting on our tombstones forever. #Quote by Jamaica Kincaid
Female Friendship quotes by Mindy Kaling
#19. I will employ the gentle, vague expression "I'm not crazy about that on you," which should mean to you, "Holy shit, take that off, that looks terrible!" I owe it to you to give feedback like a cattle prod: painful but quick. #Quote by Mindy Kaling
Female Friendship quotes by Janice Raymond
#20. This book is based on the conviction that it is not possible for women to be free, nor to be realistic about the state of female existence in a man-made world, nor to struggle against those forces that are waged against us all, nor to win, if we do not have a vision of female friendship - if women do not come to realize how profound are the possibilities of being for each other as well as how deeply men have hidden these possibilities from us. #Quote by Janice Raymond
Female Friendship quotes by Samantha Harvey
#21. It's quite difficult to write about female friendship without it seeming to be a very niche subject. It's a difficult balance. #Quote by Samantha Harvey
Female Friendship quotes by Mary Potter Kenyon
#22. The length of the friendship never brought astonishment. After all, the
majority of Baby Boomers could likely claim a long-standing friendship in their lives. No, it was always the letters: the-pen-on-paper, inside a-stamped-envelope, mailed-in-a-mailbox letter that was awe inspiring.
"You've been writing a letter every week for almost thirty years?"
The question always evokes disbelief, particularly since the dawn of the
Internet and email. We quickly correct the misconception.
"Well, at least one letter, but usually more. We write each other three or four letters a week. And we never wait for a return letter before beginning another."
Conservatively speaking, at just three letters a week since 1987, that
would equal 4,368 letters each, but we'd both agree that estimate is much
too low. We have, on occasion, written each other two letters in a single
day. #Quote by Mary Potter Kenyon
Female Friendship quotes by Jo Victor
#23. Perhaps one of these days she'd surprise herself and not actually do the thing that was right and proper and best for all concerned. And probably give herself heart failure from the shock. #Quote by Jo Victor
Female Friendship quotes by Alyssa Cole
#24. Women helped each other in ways small and large every day, without thinking, and that was what kept them going even when the world came up with new and exciting ways to crush them. #Quote by Alyssa Cole
Female Friendship quotes by Lennon Parham
#25. From the Twitter responses we got with 'Best Friends Forever' and the small feedback we are getting as the show is meted out, I think people are seeing themselves in the show and enjoying seeing female friendship portrayed in the way it really is. #Quote by Lennon Parham
Female Friendship quotes by Muse
#26. Hasten Little Maiden
stop and listen
for pearls of wisdom
stop and listen
as the river glistens ... #Quote by Muse
Female Friendship quotes by Greta Gerwig
#27. In college, it's very easy to maintain your female friendships because you're in such close proximity all the time. #Quote by Greta Gerwig
Female Friendship quotes by Elizabeth Meriwether
#28. What does being a woman today mean? Is there a right way of doing it? Is there a wrong way of doing it? Different kinds of women, female friendships: It's all pretty funny, and worth making fun of. #Quote by Elizabeth Meriwether
Female Friendship quotes by Roxane Gay
#29. It's okay if most of your friends are guys, but if you champion this as a commentary on the nature of female friendships, soul search a little. #Quote by Roxane Gay
Female Friendship quotes by Drew Barrymore
#30. No matter what the genre, I want to see me and my friends. I want to see reality. I want to see what we're really like. I loved Bridesmaids. I thought it was the most honest portrayal of female friendship in such a long time. #Quote by Drew Barrymore
Female Friendship quotes by Leo Tolstoy
#31. Kitty felt that Anna was perfectly unaffected and was not trying to conceal anything, but that she lived in another, higher world full of complex poetic interests beyond Kitty's reach. #Quote by Leo Tolstoy
Female Friendship quotes by Gillian Jacobs
#32. I'm really excited that 'The Other Woman' did so well at the box office, and I hope that will keep encouraging people to make movies about women, starring women, about female friendships. More. Please. #Quote by Gillian Jacobs
Female Friendship quotes by Tanja Taaljard
#33. It's because our friendships – female friendships are just a hop to our sisterhood, and sisterhood can be a very powerful force, to give the world … the things that humans desperately need #Quote by Tanja Taaljard
Female Friendship quotes by J. Kameron Carter
#34. The new vantage from which Christian theology as a discourse on Christian identity must operate in the modern world, then, is the Christological horizon of Mary-Israel. To be Christian is to enter into this horizon. But where is the horizon concretely displayed, where is it made visible if not in despised dark (and especially dark female) flesh? Is this not the flesh of homo sacer . . .the flesh that is impoverished, "despised and rejected of men," flesh that in shame we "hide our faces from" (cf. Isa. 53:3)?
But if this is the case, it follows that the poverty of dark flesh is where one finds the wealthy God. . . In (Christ"s) taking on the form of the slave, the from of despised dark (female) flesh there is the diclsoure (sic) of divinity, a disclosure that undoes the social arrangement of the colonial-racial tyranny (tynannos,), as the seventh-century theologian Maximus the Confessor called it, that is the darker side of modernity #Quote by J. Kameron Carter
Female Friendship quotes by Catherine Lowell
#35. More than anything, I began to hate women writers. Frances Burney, Jane Austen, Elizabeth Browning, Mary Shelley, George Eliot, Virginia Woolf. Bronte, Bronte, and Bronte. I began to resent Emily, Anne, and Charlotte - my old friends - with a terrifying passion. They were not only talented; they were brave, a trait I admired more than anything but couldn't seem to possess. The world that raised these women hadn't allowed them to write, yet they had spun fiery novels in spite of all the odds. Meanwhile, I was failing with all the odds tipped in my favor. Here I was, living out Virginia Woolf's wildest feminist fantasy. I was in a room of my own. The world was no longer saying, "Write? What's the good of your writing?" but was instead saying "Write if you choose; it makes no difference to me. #Quote by Catherine Lowell
Female Friendship quotes by Kirk Cousins
#36. This is how it needs to be in life. Solomon also wrote these words in Ecclesiastes 4:9-10 (NIV) "Two are better than one, because if either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls down and has no one to help them up." God didn't intend for us to do life alone. So let me ask you, who do you turn to when life hits you hard in the mouth? Your family? Some trusted friends? A teacher or coach? Are you building relationships today that will be there for you tomorrow when adversity comes your way? Do you have humility to look to others for strength and encouragement, or are you holding to the foolish pride that says, "I need to make it alone"? #Quote by Kirk Cousins
Female Friendship quotes by Shivam Singh
#37. Irony of "importance": Those who deserve, don't get it; Those who don't, get it in abundance by you. #Quote by Shivam Singh
Female Friendship quotes by J.R. Ward
#38. V rolled the Aquafina bottle between his palms. "How long have you wanted to ask me the question? About the gay thing."
"For a while."
"Afraid of what I'd say?"
"Nope, because it doesn't matter to me one way or the other. I'm tight with you whether you like males or females or both."
V looked into his best friend's eyes and realized ... yeah, Butch wasn't going to judge him. They were cool no matter what.
With a curse, V rubbed the center of his chest and blinked. He never cried but he felt as if he could at this moment. #Quote by J.R. Ward
Female Friendship quotes by Ajlek Jörski
#39. I like your female role.you would know what feelings I have for you, beauty! #Quote by Ajlek Jörski
Female Friendship quotes by Henry Miller
#40. The best stories I have heard were pointless, the best books those whose plot I can never remember, the best individuals those whom I never get anywhere with. Though it has been practised on me time and again I never cease to marvel how it happens that with certain individuals whom I know, within a few minutes after greeting them we are embarked on an endless voyage comparable in feeling and trajectory only to the deep middle dream which the practised dreamer slips into like a bone slips into its sockets #Quote by Henry Miller
Female Friendship quotes by Joan Rivers
#41. There is not one female comic who was beautiful as a little girl. #Quote by Joan Rivers
Female Friendship quotes by Robin Hobb
#42. His heart had pounded with joy at the thought that he might catch her, might playfully hold her in his arms, for just a moment. They were children, I suddenly saw, children at play, only a handful of years older than I was now. They had never grown older, neither one of them, not really. All their lives she had remained that girl to him, that wondrous girl just a few years older than he was, but so worldly wise, so female to all that was so male in his life. #Quote by Robin Hobb
Female Friendship quotes by Christine Northrup
#43. When we trust the makers of baby formula more than we do our own ability to nourish our babies, we lose a chance to claim an aspect of our power as women. Thinking that baby formula is as good as breast milk is believing that thirty years of technology is superior to three million years of nature's evolution. Countless women have regained trust in their bodies through nursing their children, even if they weren't sure at first that they could do it. It is an act of female power, and I think of it as feminism in its purest form. #Quote by Christine Northrup
Female Friendship quotes by Rick Riordan
#44. Too bad Jason wasn't a metal automaton. At least then Leo would have some idea of how to help his best friend. But with humans ... Leo felt helpless. They broke way too easily. #Quote by Rick Riordan
Female Friendship quotes by Anna Banks
#45. The three thousand miles in distance he put between himself and Emma tonight is nothing compared with the enormous chasm separating them when they sit next to each other in calculus.
Emma's ability to overlook his existence is a gift-but not one that Poseidon handed down. Rachel insists this gift is uniquely a female trait, regardless of the species. Since their breakup, Emma seems to be the only female utilizing this particular gift. Even Rayna could learn a few lessons from Emma in the art of torturing a smitten male. Smitten? More like fanatical.
He shakes his head in disgust. Why couldn't I just sift when I turned of age? Why couldn't I find a suitable mild-tempered female to mate with? Live a peaceful life, produce offspring, grow old, and watch my own fingerlings have fingerlings someday? He searches through his mind for someone he might have missed in the past. For a face he overlooked before but could now look forward to every day. For a docile female who would be honored to mate with a Triton prince-instead of a temperamental siren who mocks his title at every opportunity. He scours his memory for a sweet-natured Syrena who would take care of him, who would do whatever he asked, who would never argue with him.
Not some human-raised snippet who stomps her foot when she doesn't get her way, listens to him only when it suits some secret purpose she has, or shoves a handful of chocolate mints down his throat if he lets his guard down. Not some white-haired #Quote by Anna Banks
Female Friendship quotes by Svetlana Chmakova
#46. My mom says . . . there are bad people who hurt others for fun . . . and there are good people who do it by accident. Like, they make a mistake?

I think you're a good person. #Quote by Svetlana Chmakova
Female Friendship quotes by Libba Bray
#47. Maybe that's what real friendship is
getting so used to people that you need to be annoyed by them. #Quote by Libba Bray
Female Friendship quotes by Diane Von Furstenberg
#48. I find great happiness in my relationships with old friends, living mirrors that reflect histories of laughter and sorrow, triumphs and failures, births and deaths, on both sides. #Quote by Diane Von Furstenberg
Female Friendship quotes by Joanna Cannon
#49. And I decided it really was true after all. You only really need two people to believe in the same thing, to feel as though you just might belong. #Quote by Joanna Cannon
Female Friendship quotes by Luis Carlos Montalvan
#50. Moments of quiet friendship are what make life-everyone's life-grand #Quote by Luis Carlos Montalvan
Female Friendship quotes by Dorothy Dunnett
#51. My love is given to no one,' said Lymond. 'To neither man, woman or child. Duty, friendship, compassion I do owe to many. But love I offer to none. #Quote by Dorothy Dunnett
Female Friendship quotes by Richard G. Scott
#52. I have…learned that one cannot demand love and respect or require that the bonds of friendship and appreciation be extended as an unearned right. These blessings must be earned. They come from personal merit. Sincere concern for others, selfless service, and worthy example qualify one for such respect. #Quote by Richard G. Scott
Female Friendship quotes by C.S. Lewis
#53. Liking and Loves for the Sub-Human

"Need-love cries to God from our poverty; Gift-love longs to serve, or even to suffer for, God; Appreciative love says: "We give thanks to thee for thy great glory." Need-love says of a woman "I cannot live without her"; Gift-love longs to give her happiness, comfort, protection – if possible, wealth; Appreciative love gazes and holds its breath and is silent, rejoices that such a wonder should exist even if not for him, will not be wholly dejected by losing her, would rather have it so than never to have seen her at all." p.17


"Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art, like the universe itself (for God did not need to create). It has no survival value; rather it is one of those things which give value to survival." p.71 #Quote by C.S. Lewis
Female Friendship quotes by Dave Matthews
#54. In your eyes, I see what's on my mind. #Quote by Dave Matthews
Female Friendship quotes by Anna Seward
#55. To what derision should I be exposed from a thousand quarters!- An unlearned female entering the lists of criticism against the mighty Johnson! #Quote by Anna Seward

#56. Hermione,' said Hagrid.
'What about her?' said Ron.
'She's in a righ' state, that's what. She's bin comin' down ter visit me a lot since Chris'mas. Bin feelin' lonely. Firs' yeh weren' talking to her because o' the Firebolt, now yer not talkin' to her because her cat - '

' - ate Scabbers!' Ron interjected angrily.

'Because her cat acted like all cats do,' Hagrid continued doggedly. 'She's cried a fair few times, yeh know. Goin' through a rough time at the moment. Bitten off more'n she can chew, if yeh ask me, all the work she's tryin' ter do. Still found time ter help me with Buckbeak's case, mind.… She's found some really good stuff fer me…reckon he'll stand a good chance now…'

'Hagrid, we should've helped as well - sorry - ' Harry began awkwardly.

'I'm not blamin' yeh!' said Hagrid, waving Harry's apology aside. 'Gawd knows yeh've had enough ter be gettin' on with. I've seen yeh practicin' Quidditch ev'ry hour o' the day an' night - but I gotta tell yeh, I thought you two'd value yer friend more'n broomsticks or rats. Tha's all.'

Harry and Ron exchanged uncomfortable looks.

'Really upset, she was, when Black nearly stabbed yeh, Ron. She's got her heart in the right place, Hermione has, an' you two not talkin' to her - #Quote by J.K. Rowling

"No," said Ron, "I shouldn't've
"Forget it," Harry said.
Ron grinned nervously at him. and Harry grinned back.
Hermoine burst into tears.
"There's nothing to cry about!" Harry told her, bewildered.
"You two are so stupid!" she shouted, stamping her foot on the ground, tears splashing down her front. Then before either of them could stop her, she had given both of them a hug and dashed away, now positively howling. #Quote by J.K. Rowling
Female Friendship quotes by T.H. White

Female Friendship quotes by Seneca
#62. Still, you must especially avoid those who are gloomy and always lamenting, and who grasp at every pretext for complaint. Though a man's loyalty and kindness may not be in doubt, a companion who is agitated and groaning about everything is an enemy to peace of mind. #Quote by Seneca
Female Friendship quotes by Michael Patrick King
#63. My female writers have always been my backbone. I had a writing room of six women for five years so I know what women do. Cultivated by me, by the way! #Quote by Michael Patrick King
Female Friendship quotes by Darren Star
#64. I think women have such rich emotional lives that they are expressive about. I also think they're funny. I like watching strong female characters, and I like writing them. I don't know if it's conscious that I gravitate towards women, but it's certainly evolved that way. #Quote by Darren Star
Female Friendship quotes by John Robbins
#65. Your life does matter. It always matters whether you reach out in friendship or lash out in anger. It always matters whether you live with compassion and awareness or whether you succumb to distractions and trivia. It always matters how you treat other people, how you treat animals, and how you treat yourself. It always matters what you do. It always matters what you say. And it always matters what you eat. #Quote by John Robbins
Female Friendship quotes by Lina J. Potter
#66. People generally forget the things they are ashamed of, but no one ever forgets an insult. #Quote by Lina J. Potter
Female Friendship quotes by Joe Hill
#67. Her face was framed by two wings of lank black hair that curled under her long, pointed chin, so she looked like the female version of the wizard who was always giving Harry Potter such a hard time in the movies. Professor Snail or something. #Quote by Joe Hill
Female Friendship quotes by Lauren Baker
#68. Well, honey, once you've been head-over-heels in love with somebody, you don't go back to being 'friends'. It doesn't work that way. - Megan's Dad #Quote by Lauren Baker
Female Friendship quotes by Shirley Manson
#69. Pop music seems to be the way radio programming has chosen to support female artists. They have chosen not to support a more provocative voice from women, which I find disappointing. #Quote by Shirley Manson
Female Friendship quotes by Anthony Powell
#70. In other words, nearly all the inhabitants of these outwardly disconnected empires turn out at last to be tenaciously inter-related; love and hate, friendship and enmity, too, becoming themselves much less clearly defined, more often than not showing signs of possessing characteristics that could claim, to say the least, not a little in common; while work and play merge indistinguishably into a complex tissue of pleasure and tedium. #Quote by Anthony Powell
Female Friendship quotes by Jarod Kintz
#71. I'm like a staircase, she was like an elevator, and our relationship never escalated above friendship. I'd like to think we'll one day be a couple, but I'm not going to wear a fishbowl on my head and dream about it. That wouldn't be fair to me, her, or the goldfish I'd be displacing. #Quote by Jarod Kintz
Female Friendship quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#72. Love always trust, always hopes, and always protects. #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita
Female Friendship quotes by Gloria Steinem
#73. I didn't hear words that were accurate, much less prideful. For example, I never once heard the word clitoris. It would be years before I learned that females possessed the only organ in the human body with no function than to feel pleasure. (If such an organ were unique to the male body, can you imagine how much we would hear about it - and what it would be used to justify?) #Quote by Gloria Steinem
Female Friendship quotes by Mandy Len Catron
#74. Extraordinary love was not defined by the intensity with which you wanted someone, but by generosity and kindness and a deep sense of friendship #Quote by Mandy Len Catron
Female Friendship quotes by Janvier Chouteu-Chando
#75. Writers understand the world better, but they lack the strength to change it. Perhaps that is so because they understand their limitations more than others. #Quote by Janvier Chouteu-Chando
Female Friendship quotes by Mary Ann Shaffer
#76. There was Isola in a mad hat and a purple shawl pinned with a glittering brooch. She was smiling fixedly in the wrong direction and I loved her instantly. #Quote by Mary Ann Shaffer
Female Friendship quotes by Tove Jansson
#77. A person can also find solitude with others, though it is more difficult #Quote by Tove Jansson
