Best to seek out a relative’s open arms.

Family is just accident…. They don’t mean to get on your nerves.  They don’t even mean to be your family, they just are.
Marsha Norman Quotes

Family life is a bit like a runny peach pie – not perfect but who’s complaining?
Robert Brault, www.robertbrault.com Quotes

Family quarrels are bitter things.  They don’t go by any rules.  They’re not like aches or wounds; they’re more like splits in

the skin that won’t heal because there’s not enough material.
F. Scott Fitzgerald Quotes

Family quarrels have a total bitterness unmatched by others.  Yet it sometimes happens that they also have a kind of tang, a pleasantness beneath the unpleasantness, based on the tacit understanding that this is not for keeps; that any limb you climb out on will still be there later for you to climb back.
Mignon McLaughlin, The Neurotic’s Notebook, 1960 Quotes

Family:  A social unit where the father is concerned with parking space, the children with outer space, and the mother with closet space.
Evan Esar Quotes

Family faces are magic mirrors.  Looking at people who belong to us, we see the past, present, and future.
Gail Lumet Buckley Quotes Quotes

Families are like fudge – mostly sweet with a few nuts.
Author Unknown Quotes

Having a place to go – is a home.  Having someone to love – is a family.  Having both – is a blessing.
Donna Hedges Quotes

In some families, please is described as the magic word.  In our house, however, it was sorry.
Margaret Laurence Quotes

I don’t care how poor a man is; if he has family, he’s rich.
Dan Wilcox and Thad Mumford, “Identity Crisis,” M*A*S*H Quotes

If you don’t believe in ghosts, you’ve never been to a family reunion.
Ashleigh Brilliant Quotes

It is not flesh and blood but the heart which makes us fathers and sons.
Johann Schiller Quotes

In a houseful of toddlers and pets, you can start out having a bad day, but you keep getting detoured.
Robert Brault, www.robertbrault.com Quotes

If the family were a fruit, it would be an orange, a circle of sections, held together but separable – each segment distinct.
Letty Cottin Pogrebin Quotes

In a household of toddlers and pets, we discover this rule of thumb about happy families – that they are least two-thirds

incontinent.
Robert Brault, www.robertbrault.com Quotes

If minutes were kept of a family gathering, they would show that “Members not Present” and “Subjects Discussed” were one and

the same.
Robert Brault, www.robertbrault.com Quotes

In time of test, family is best.
Burmese Proverb Quotes

I don’t have to look up my family tree, because I know that I’m the sap.
Fred Allen Quotes

Nobody has ever before asked the nuclear family to live all by itself in a box the way we do.  With no relatives, no support,

we’ve put it in an impossible situation.
Margaret Mead Quotes

Our most basic instinct is not for survival but for family.  Most of us would give our own life for the survival of a family

member, yet we lead our daily life too often as if we take our family for granted.
Paul Pearshall Quotes

Ohana means family – no one gets left behind, and no one is ever forgotten.
Chris Sanders and Dean DeBlois, Lilo & Stitch Quotes

Other things may change us, but we start and end with the family.
Anthony Brandt Quotes

Rejoice with your family in the beautiful land of life!
Albert Einstein Quotes

There’s an awful lot of blood around that water is thicker than.
Mignon McLaughlin, The Second Neurotic’s Notebook, 1966 Quotes

The lack of emotional security of our American young people is due, I believe, to their isolation from the larger family unit. No two people – no mere father and mother – as I have often said, are enough to provide emotional security for a child.  He needs to feel himself one in a world of kinfolk, persons of variety in age and temperament, and yet allied to himself by an indissoluble bond which he cannot break if he could, for nature has welded him into it before he was born.
Pearl S. Buck  Quotes

The advantage of growing up with siblings is that you become very good at fractions.
Robert Brault, www.robertbrault.com Quotes

The informality of family life is a blessed condition that allows us to become our best while looking our worst.
Marge Kennedy Quotes

The family is one of nature’s masterpieces.
George Santayana, The Life of Reason Quotes

There is no cure for laziness but a large family helps.
Herbert Prochnov Quotes

The great advantage of living in a large family is that early lesson of life’s essential unfairness.
Nancy Mitford Quotes

The happiest moments of my life have been the few which I have passed at home in the bosom of my family.
Thomas Jefferson Quotes

The family – that dear octopus from whose tentacles we never quite escape, nor, in our inmost hearts, ever quite wish to.
Dodie Smith Quotes

The great gift of family life is to be intimately acquainted with people you might never even introduce yourself to, had life

not done it for you.
Kendall Hailey, The Day I Became an Autodidact Quotes

The only rock I know that stays steady, the only institution I know that works is the family.
Lee Iacocca Quotes

They… threw themselves into the interests of the rest, but each plowed his or her own furrow.  Their thoughts, their little

passions and hopes and desires, all ran along separate lines.  Family life is like this – animated, but collateral.
Rose Macaulay Quotes

The happiness of the domestic fireside is the first boon of Heaven; and it is well it is so, since it is that which is the lot of the mass of mankind.
Thomas Jefferson, 1813 Quotes

To us, family means putting your arms around each other and being there.
Barbara Bush Quotes

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.
Erma Bombeck Quotes

The family is a haven in a heartless world.
Attributed to Christopher Lasch Quotes

The thing about family disasters is that you never have to wait long before the next one puts the previous one into

perspective.
Robert Brault, www.robertbrault.com Quotes

When our relatives are at home, we have to think of all their good points or it would be impossible to endure them.
George Bernard Shaw Quotes

What greater thing is there for human souls than to feel that they are joined for life – to be with each other in silent

unspeakable memories.
George Eliot Quotes

We cannot destroy kindred:  our chains stretch a little sometimes, but they never break.
Marquise de Sévigné Quotes

What greater blessing to give thanks for at a family gathering than the family and the gathering.
Robert Brault, www.robertbrault.com Quotes

We all grow up with the weight of history on us.  Our ancestors dwell in the attics of our brains as they do in the spiraling chains of knowledge hidden in every cell of our bodies.
Shirley Abbott Quotes

When you look at your life, the greatest happinesses are family happinesses.
Joyce Brothers Quotes

You don’t choose your family.  They are God’s gift to you, as you are to them.
Desmond Tutu Quotes
