Quotes and Ideas To Patch Up Broken Friendships

Breaking up with a close friend is always disastrous! We lose peace of mind and sleep if a friendship ends in a bitter quarrel or a mere misunderstanding. However, there's always room for restoring that friendship which you once shared. While there may be friends who might not forgive easily, most will be too willing to mend the broken ties.

Here's how to patch up with an estranged friend:

1) The best way to revive friendships is by calling up friends. Just gather courage and call up your friend and say that you are missing him/her and want this friendship to stay forever. If you cannot call up your friend, meet up with them somewhere and tell them that their friendship is precious to you.

2) Take another friend into strict confidence and seek his help. Then allow him to patch up disputes with your friend. This works good and helps to break the ice between alienated friends.

3) Use every single opportunity to bump with your friends who have separated from you. If you know their favorite hangouts, pubs or coffee shops, drop in there to meet up with them. Tell the waiter or bartender to serve your friend's favorite coffee or drink, and add a note to it. If a music is being played, tell the musician to play your friend's favorite song, which will remind him of those good old times!

4) If nothing of the above works, simply send a nice text message or a beautiful card with a sweet friendship message. No doubt, your friend will start missing you and revive that friendship once again!

Here are some famous quotes which you can send your friends:

* "Never shall i forget the days i spent with you . continue to be my friend, as you will always find me yours."
-Ludwig Van Beethoven

* "Walking with a friend in the dark is better than walking alone in the light."
- Helen Keller

* "The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious, it is the true source of art, science, and friendship."

* "Friendship that flows from the heart cannot be frozen by adversity, as the water that flows from the spring cannot congeal in winter."
- James Fenimore Cooper

* "When true friends meet in adverse hour;
'Tis like a sunbeam through a shower.
A watery way an instant seen,
The darkly closing clouds between."
- Sir Walter Scott
