The Best Family Quotes


“As I child, I came to this idea with a horrified fascination.

***

“Family' is not just a biological word, it's an an operative one.”
( Andrew Vachss )

"I can't tell whether you think that's good or bad."
"What does it matter? It's simply true.”
( Victoria Schwab, The Near Witch )

who share a life together and yet maintain their unique individuality.”
( Kathy Magliato )
***


***
“I also have an extended family :
The people who stayed.
The people who became more than friends; the people who open the door when I knock.
That's what it all boils down to.
The people who have to open the door, not because they always want to but because they do.”
( Diane Keaton )
*** 

family quotes, wisdome, about family

( Martin Mull )

“As goes the family, so goes the faith; as goes the faith, so goes the culture.”

Our family was such a close one, you could get smothered.
Of course, we didn't always agree with one another.
Sometimes I quarreled with my brother and sisters, but I couldn't remember hating anyone for more than five minutes.”
 ( Gloria Whelan, Summer of the War )
***

What is family?
They were the people who claimed you.
In good, in bad, in parts or in whole, they were the ones who showed up, who stayed there, regardless.”

***

“You need to make time for your family no matter what happens in your life”
( Matthew Quick, The Silver Linings Playbook )

They are the inspiration to reach great heights, and our comfort when we occasionally falter”
