The Superhero in the Family | Uncle Quotes

What is it about uncles that often makes them lovable to their nieces and nephews? Quite obviously, uncles are brothers of one of the parents, they often look like them in appearance or manners, and sometimes they can even be an alternative version of mom or dad. All this could mean they seem interesting, while at the same time having the permission not to impose rules on kids and to spoil them (what’s not to like about that, right?).

Analyses aside, celebrities and prominent figures of science, arts and humanities have spoken about this relationship and their quotes are always fun to read – and probably share. With uncles.

  • My uncle, gentlemen, could say nothing; he was so very much astonished The queerest thing of all, was, that although there was such a crowd of persons, and although fresh faces were pouring in, every moment, there was no telling where they came from. They seemed to start up, in some strange manner, from the ground, or the air, and disappear in the same way. When a porter had put his luggage in the coach, and received his fare, he turned round and was gone; and before my uncle had well begun to wonder what had become of him, half-a-dozen fresh ones started up, and staggered along under the weight of parcels which seemed big enough to crush them.
