100 Cute Quotes About Sisters and Brothers

Yup its right, "Blood is thicker than Water". No matter how annoying your siblings are, you will always be there when they need you.

Siblings whether they belong to the same family of origin or blood undeniably give unique bonding to a family relationship.

You have your earliest memory with them, right from your school to your graduation, from your dinner table to family picnics to every single occasion in your life.

Siblings fight, pull each other’s hair, steal stuff, and accuse each other indiscriminately. But siblings also know the undeniable fact that they are of the same blood, share the same origins, and are our family.

Even when they hate each other they tend to put all things in perspective by supporting each other down to the last breath. As Lemony Snicket once said, “Siblings that say they never fight are most definitely hiding something.”

The following collected sister and brother quotes will make you reacquaint yourself with each other. It doesn’t matter if you are first or middle or last born or a twin, you will relate to every quote below:

Why We Have the Strongest Bond with Our Siblings?

Since brothers and sisters have grown up alongside us, they have a unique and unequaled insight into our character and personality.

We can openly and bluntly express ourselves to them, no beating around the bush; if something is bothering us, our brothers and sisters often pick up on it long before anyone else.

Let me ask you a question, how many of you can remember a family car ride when our parents threatened to turn the car around because we were fighting with our siblings in the backseat?

Even if we were extremely close and affectionate with our siblings while growing up, there were always times when we wanted nothing to do with them or rather just be away from them.

Perhaps, now all of you might have gone separate ways for years, some married and some studying, or maybe sitting together right now under one roof.

We can bluntly and openly express ourselves to them, no beating around the bush; if something bothers us; our siblings often pick up on it long before anyone else. This sensitivity allows soul-searching talks to occur naturally, and often.

Aren't we lucky that our siblings are more than relatives, they are our friends too. I am sure, after reading the quotes mentioned above, you will definitely celebrate the special bond with your siblings.

I will conclude about brothers and sisters with this quote:

Siblings relationships outlast marriages, survive the death of parents, and resurface after quarrels that would sink any friendship. They flourish in a thousand incarnations of closeness and distance, warmth, loyalty, and distrust.
