“Lots of people want to ride with you in the limo, but what you want is someone who will take the bus with you when the limo breaks down.” — Oprah Winfrey

This quote by Oprah Winfrey is stating one main thing: There is no reading between the lines if you truly know what friendship is. This is stating that a friend is a person who will stick by you no matter the situation. Whether you’re rich or poor, they will still be there for you. This quote is basically saying no matter how much money you have and material things you have, it doesn’t matter because I’m your friend and I like you for you, not your items.

Friendship is a gift and It shouldn’t be taken for granted. Not many people can be a friend, so when you have a good one, appreciate your relationship with that person.
