    Powerful quotes to share with your best friend

    Originally used as ‘a term of address among black people’, Soul Sister means ‘a black woman’. Slowly the term has been changed and used to describe ‘a woman whose thoughts, feelings and attitudes closely match those of another; a kindred spirit.’

    Here at Sister & Soul we love hearing stories about friendship and believe there is nothing lovelier than women standing shoulder to shoulder, supporting each other.

    To celebrate sisterhood we want to share ten friendship quotes that describe what it means to have and be a Soul Sister.

    Why not send them to your bestie; a friend you dream of keeping forever.

    There is no rush, these kinds of friendships can not be forced, so wait in hope, keep looking up and loving like you do, and keep being wonderful, beautiful, kind and happy you.

    If you have a Soul Sister, there is no doubt you are fortunate; we believe the quality of our relationships equals the quality of our lives. Cherish her, treasure her, spoil her, nurture the bond that you have, and know it is truly priceless.
