Blood's thicker than water, and when one's in trouble
Best to seek out a relative's open arms.
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
You can kiss your family and friends good-bye and put miles between you, but at
the same time you carry them with you in your heart, your mind, your stomach,
because you do not just live in a world but a world lives in you. ~Frederick

would you call and what would you say? And why are you waiting? ~Stephen Levine
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

it was sorry. ~Margaret Laurence

There's one sad truth in life I've found
While journeying east and west -
The only folks we really wound
Are those we love the best.
We flatter those we scarcely know,
We please the fleeting guest,
And deal full many a thoughtless blow
To those who love us best.
~Ella Wheeler Wilcox
The only rock I know that stays steady, the only institution I know that works
is the family. ~Lee Iacocca
Shared joy is a double joy; shared sorrow is half a sorrow. ~Swedish Proverb
"Our notion of the perfect society embraces the family as its center and
ornament, and this paradise is not secure until children appear to animate and
complete the picture."

"You leave home to seek your fortune and, when you get it, you go home and share
it with your family."
-- Anita Baker
Other things change us, but we start and end with the family.
In time of test, family is best.
It is a fine seasoning for joy to think of those we love.
Give a little love to a child, and you get a great deal back.
Cherish your family for they are your treasure, a storehouse of riches, wealth
Remember, we all stumble, every one of us. That's why it's a comfort to go hand
in hand. ~Emily Kimbrough
Every house where love abides and friend is a guest, is surely home, and home,
sweet home, for there the heart can rest...
"Home is where you hang your memories. Home is where love, respect end
Family is the only thing you start with and the only thing you leave with.
The family is the school of duties... founded on love.
"Other things may change us, but we start and end with family."
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
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

break. ~Marquise de Sévigné

past, present, and future. ~Gail Lumet Buckley
Are we not like two volumes of one book? ~Marceline Desbordes-Valmore
Present your family and friends with their eulogies now - they won't be able to
hear how much you love them and appreciate them from inside the coffin.
A happy family is but an earlier heaven.
The bond that links your true family is not one of blood, but of respect and joy
in each other's life.
We Are Family
Family, Cost: Priceless
We ought to encourage our children to know their relatives. We need to talk of
them, make effort to correspond with them, visit them, join family
Spencer W. Kimball
I promise you that if you will keep your journals and records, they will indeed
be a source of great inspiration to your families, to your children, your
grandchildren, and others, on through the generations. Each of us is important
to those who are near and dear to us and as our posterity read of our life's
experiences, they, too, will come to know and love us. And in that glorious day
when our families are together in the eternities, we will already be acquainted.
Spencer W. Kimball
You will find as you look back upon your life that the moments when you have
truly lived are the moments when you have done things in the spirit of love.
When we are grown we'll smile and say, we had no cares in childhood's day - but
we'll be wrong, twill not be true. I've this much care. . .I care for you.
Where children are, there is the Golden Age.
Where there is love there is life.
You don’t choose your family. They are God’s gift to you, as you are to them.
The love of our family flows strong and deep, leaving us memories to treasure
Those we love are the snowflakes of life. None are the same, each is beautiful,
and all bring something special to our world.
To the world, you might be just one person, but to one person, you just might be
The ornaments of a home are the friends who frequent it.
Our family is a circle of strength and love…
With every birth and every union the circle grows…
Every joy shared adds more love…
Every crisis faced together
Makes the circle grow stronger.
