Sometimes being a brother is even better than being a superhero.
Did you spend your days roughhousing, playing outside, or competing with one another to win the top score on your latest console game?
However you spent your childhood together, your brother – whether he was older or younger than you – probably had one of the most important roles in shaping who you are today.
Maybe you have a contentious relationship with your brother, or maybe it’s the most wonderful, loving relationship in the world – or maybe it’s both, depending on the day!
The relationship between brothers – and between brothers and sisters – is unique.
But brothers don’t have to be blood relations. Maybe those you see as your “brothers” aren’t even men who grew up in the same household or neighborhood as you did. They are just incredible friends you met later in life – at college, in your workplace, or through a hobby you enjoy – who have always been there for you.
What defines a brother like this is that they are reliable and trustworthy in all circumstances.
To celebrate the brotherly bond, we’ve put together a list of the very best brother quotes out there. These quotes come from authors, thinkers, and celebrities who have shared their feelings about their own siblings.
