51 Quotes About Siblings That Will Make You Feel Grateful

Some people spend their childhood wishing they were an only child. Fortunately many regret as adults all the fights and the rivalry. As complicated as it is, the sibling relationship is more likely to be one of the longest lasting and strongest relationships in most people’s lives.

Siblings are simply too precious to waste. They are your longest memory bank, your partners in crime, your protectors, your role models, your goads, your teachers. They teach you how to choose friends, how to build friendships and how to walk away from them. A good thing about having siblings as friends is that you can have a fight one day then wake up the next morning and nothing ever happened. It’s not like they can walk out of your life.

It’s true that we don’t choose our siblings, but while friendships may come and go, siblings are for life, so don’t hold back on love and show them your true feelings. These quotes showcase this special relationship. You can even share them to wish “Happy Siblings Day” to your brother or sister in April (USA and Canada) or in May (in Europe).
