Friends come and go, some leaves footprints in our life while others with unspeakable scars.

Throughout the years, I’ve realized that we will remember not the hurtful words of our enemies, but the silence of our good friends in time of needs.

Here are 80 sarcastic and eye-opening quotes about fake friends, back stabbers and betrayal by good friends. Remember, a friend to all is a friend to none, if a friend choose not to defend another that is wrongfully accused, he or she will most definitely not be on your side when the time comes.
Looking for your knife? You should try my back, that’s where I’ve last seen it. While you’re busy stabbing my back, you can kiss my ass too, both sides. Before you go. I would like you to take this knife out of my back. You’ll probably need it again. It wasn’t the knife your friend stab me in the back with that hurt me. It was the dagger of your silent acceptance. If you’re going to stab me in the back, be smart enough to cover up the knife. Dear two-faced friend, I can’t seem to decide which face of yours to slap first. When your so called friends say they have your back, make sure they’re not holding a knife. You must get tired of putting makeup on two faces every morning. Remember, there are two sides to every story. Kind of like your face. So remember, as I turn my back on you, it’s because you did the same to me. I’m sorry, I guess you didn’t get the memo. You have officially been removed from my life so you can stop stalking me any day now. If you are not my friend behind my back, don’t pretend to be my friend to my face. Excuse me, when did my back become a target for your knife throwing contest? Look, I found your knife. It was stuck in my back, but I got it out and I’m sure you’ll need it again real soon! No, don’t even approach me. I am severely allergic to fake people. When you said you has my back, I didn’t realize you meant for a place to store your knife. If I treated you the way you treated me. You would hate me. Friends are supposed to be there for you when you cry, not the reason you cry. Strangers can become best friends just as quickly as best friends can become strangers. You stabbed me then pretended you were the one who was bleeding. I’m the kind of friend who will help you hide a dead body, but if you betray me, just remember, I know how to hide a body. Stop asking me to trust you while I’m still coughing up water from the last time you let me drown. When someone betrays you, it is a reflection of their character, not yours. It hurts when you go through something that kills you inside but you have to act like it doesn’t affect you at all. Sometimes it’s not the people who change, it’s the mask that falls off. Don’t worry about the people from your past, there’s a reason why they didn’t make it to your future. Fake friends believe in rumors, real friends believe in you. Without fake friends, you’ll never know who the real ones are. Be careful who you share your weakness with. Some people can’t wait for the opportunity to use them against you. Don’t waste words on people who deserve your silence. Sometimes the most powerful thing you can say is nothing at all. Some of the most poisonous people come disguised as friends and family. Don’t talk to me because you’re bored. I’m not here to entertain you. And don’t come to me only when you need a favor. I don’t like being used. Fake friends are like shadows. They follow you in the sun but leave you in the dark. Sometimes you just need to distance yourself form people. If they care, they’ll notice. If they don’t, you know where you stand. Don’t mind the backstabber, you’re always ahead of them. That’s why they’re at your back. I don’t regret my past, I just regret the time I’ve wasted with the wrong people. We never lose friends. We simply learn who the real ones are. I didn’t lose a friend, I just realized I never had one. Oh, I’m sorry I forgot I only exist when you need money. As we grow up, we realize it becomes less important to have a ton of friends, and more important to have real ones. I don’t chase anyone anymore. Wanna walk out of my life, there’s the door. Hell, I’ll even hold it for you. Fake friends – once they stop talking to you, they start talking about you. Fake friends are like leeches, they stick to you till they sucked the blood and life out of you. It’s not about who is real to your face. It’s about who stays real behind your back. We live in a world that is built on empty promises constructed by liars. Life is like an elevator, on your way up, sometimes you have to stop and let some people off. A true friend’s silence hurts more than an enemy’s rough words. Never tell your problems to everyone, 20% don’t care and the other 80% are glad you have them. A friendship that can end never really began. Be careful what you tell people. The friend today could be your enemy tomorrow. A friend of everyone is a friend of no one. Words mean nothing when your actions contradict. An honest enemy is always better than a friend who lies. Pay less attention to what people say, and more attention to what they do. Their actions will show you the truth. Does it run in your blood to betray the ones you love? Be careful of who you pick as a friend, most people pretend to listen, but are only gathering information to judge you with. I don’t hate you, I’m just disappointed into everything you said you’d never be. Fake friends will stab you in the back then ask you why you’re bleeding. The worst thing about being lied to is knowing you weren’t worth the truth. Be careful who you trust… the devil was once an angel. I got you a gift – a new knife for all the backstabbing you seem to enjoy so much. Don’t fear the enemy that attacks you, fear the fake friend that hugs you. It is better to have an enemy who honestly says they hate you than to have a friend who’s putting you down secretly. We’re not friends, we’re not enemies, we’re just strangers with some memories. Breaking someone’s trust is like crumpling up a perfect piece of paper. You can smooth it over but it’s never going to be the same again. I am a good enough person to forgive you. But not stupid enough to trust you again! Apology accepted, trust denied. It’s funny how sometimes the people you’d take a bullet for, are the ones behind the trigger. The saddest thing about betrayal is that it never comes from your enemies. It comes from friends and loved ones. Better to have an enemy who slaps you in the face than a friend who stabs you in the back. I have no need for people who come to me when they need me, then throw me aside when they’re fine. Fools take a knife and stab people in the back. The wise take a knife, cut the cord, and set themselves free from the fools. Some people are willing to betray years of friendship just to get a little but of the spotlight. – Lauren Conrad Books, like friends should be few and well chosen. – Samuel Jackson When someone breaks your trust don’t feel stupid for trusting them. You didn’t do anything wrong, they’re just an untrustworthy person. – Sonya Parker Betray a friend, and you’ll often find you have ruined yourself. – Aesop Fables I’m not crying because of you; you’re not worth it. I’m crying because my delusion of who you were was shattered by the truth of who you are. – Steve Maraboli Sometimes you put walls up not to keep people out, but to see who cares enough to break them down. – Socrates Everyone suffers at least one bad betrayal in their lifetime. It’s what unites us. The trick is not to let it destroy your trust in others when that happens. Don’t let them take that from you. In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends. They can betray me but I choose not to betray my peace of mind. – Dodinsky
