We may not always get on with our families. But we all have them – and they have shaped us into the people we are today. No wonder, then, that so many artists, musicians and writers have included quotes about family in their work.
Famous Quotes on Family
Erma Bombeck: “The family. We were a strange little band of characters trudging through life sharing diseases and toothpaste, coveting one another’s desserts, hiding shampoo, borrowing money, locking each other out of our rooms, inflicting pain and kissing to heal it in the same instant, loving, laughing, defending, and trying to figure out the common thread that bound us all together.”
Leo Tolstoy: “All happy families resemble one another; every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way.”
Legouve Pere: “A brother is a friend provided by nature.”
Eva Burrows: “In family life, love is the oil that eases friction, the cement that binds closer together, and the music that brings harmony.”
Jim Rohn: “Your family and your love must be cultivated like a garden. Time, effort, and imagination must be summoned constantly to keep any relationship flourishing and growing.”
