True friendship is not when you go to school and hang around with someone just because you have no one else to chill with. Its not calling someone up when your bored because they are fun to talk to. Its not when you cant think of a birthday gift and end up buying your friend a wal-mart gift card. Is not when you have to talk to someone about something you don't particularly care about (like how much snow we got last year) to avoid an awkward silence.
Friendship is when you love someone with every ounce of your being and genuinely want them to be happy even if it means sacrificing something your self to make them happy. A true friend is someone you can talk to about your feelings, someone you can tell things you could never tell your family or even your partner. They are someone who you don't have to talk to but someone you want to talk to; someone you will go out of your way to be with. Friendship is when you love someone so much you want to hold them and never let go, someone you want to rest your head on and cry, and you would let them cry on you too. Its someone you can talk to about things you disagree on and end up being closer for that disagreement. Its when you think about someone and how close you are to them and how much you love them and you smile and are happy all over.
Friendship is when your love for someone exceeds your need for them. (the Dali Lama said that)!
Bill and Lisa are real friends. They are physically opposites, have completely different tastes and interests and see each other very infrequently. But they both know the other will be there for them no matter what, and that is friendship.

True friendship is when neither person wants or expects the other to change anything about themselves to keep a friendship going. Anybody who wants or expects somebody to change is not a friend. Any family member who wants somebody to change who they are in order to keep their life the way they would like it to be is not family. What good is friendship if you didn't like how the person was to begin with? You wouldn't make friends with a person like that unless you had other plans for them in mind. People who made friends as kids usually got along well, it's why you consider certain people lifelong friends, and it's why you don't consider everybody your friend.
Jon and bill have been friends since third grade, they get along most of the time even if they disagree or argue they remain true friends. Kenny thinks Bill's life would be better if he went out more and bought stock with general genius innovations. Bill thinks Kenny can go find a new friend and a new life around people who want to go out more and buy stock with General Genius Innovations, and stay there! Kenny doesn't want friendship, he wants more from Bill than what Bill has offered him.

When you love somebody so much, that if you could save their life by never eating pizza again, you would do it, no questions asked.
Adara: I'm going to die.
AJ: Can I help you in any way, I love you too much, don't die.
Adara: If you never eat pizza again, you can save my life.
AJ: Done deal. (Puts down the piece of pizza in her hand, throwing the food of the gods into the garbage.)
Adara: This is what friendship is.

Something that is much underrated in our society. Friendship is actually a form of love (here I'm not talking exclusively about erotic love). It's not a lesser form of love than erotic love, only a different form of love. In fact, the ancient Greeks had a word, "phileos", more or less equating to fraternal/brotherly love (friendship). Friendship seems to have no observable biological necessity(unlike parental love, necessary for humans to grow, and erotic love, necessary for humans to reproduce), and not much of a marketable appeal (as opposed to the millions/billions of dollars worth of things sold to people trying to better their marriages or parenting skills), yet without such a form of love as friendship our societies would be unbearably dull and alienated from one another. One can love their friends as well as their "significant other", just not in the same way (the difference here is quality, not necessarily quantity).
Friendships are not monogamous by necessity. Two people in a friendship don't need to exclude other people from their relationship. A friendship can best be thought of as two people side by side looking forward toward a common goal. It's an odd form of love in which people develop a relationship without relationship as a goal. Scientific achievements have come out of tight-knit friendships (Watson and Crick), as have works of literary genius (J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis), as well as victories in wars (due to the tight camaraderie and mutual trust of soldiers).

Friendship is a usually one-sided relationship between two people in which one person talks about their feelings, while the other responds with eye-rolls and sarcasm.
A typical conversation between friends:
"What is your family like?"
"Stop psychoanalyzing me."

Two pals munching on a well-cooked face together.
Paul: What? Why?
Carl: Because we're friends. And friendship is two pals munching on a well-cooked face together.
Paul: That isn't friendship, Carl. That's sick.
