News room: Quotations About Friends And Family

Quotations About Friends And Family by Jessica Barrah

Christmas is the one time of year that friends and family make a special effort to all get together. We’ve brought together some quotations about friends and family – and it’s notable that a lot of authors have emphasised that ‘family’ doesn’t have to mean only those people that are related by blood.







“Good friends, good books, and a sleepy conscience: this is the ideal life.”
― Mark Twain


“I sustain myself with the love of family.”
― Maya Angelou


“There is nothing I would not do for those who are really my friends. I have no notion of loving people by halves, it is not my nature.”
― Jane Austen, Northanger Abbey


“Families are messy. Immortal families are eternally messy. Sometimes the best we can do is to remind each other that we’re related for better or for worse…and try to keep the maiming and killing to a minimum.”
― Rick Riordan, The Sea of Monsters


“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 Buechner


“Show me a family of readers, and I will show you the people who move the world.”
― Napoléon Bonaparte


“I would rather walk with a friend in the dark, than alone in the light.”
― Helen Keller


“Siblings: children of the same parents, each of whom is perfectly normal until they get together.”
― Sam Levenson


“The capacity for friendship is God’s way of apologizing for our families.”
― Jay McInerney, The Last of the Savages


“One reason we have children I think is to learn that parts of ourselves we had given up for dead are merely dormant and that the old joys can re emerge fresh and new and in a completely different form.”
― Anne Fadiman


“Why did you do all this for me?’ he asked. ‘I don’t deserve it. I’ve never done anything for you.’ ‘You have been my friend,’ replied Charlotte. ’That in itself is a tremendous thing.”
― E.B. White, Charlotte’s Web


The best you can really hope for is a family where everyone’s problems, big and small, work together. Kind of like an orchestra where every instrument is out of tune, in exactly the same way, so you don’t really notice.”
― Neal Shusterman, Antsy Does Time


“It is more fun to talk with someone who doesn’t use long, difficult words but rather short, easy words like "What about lunch?”
― A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh


“There is no surer foundation for a beautiful friendship than a mutual taste in literature.”
― P.G. Wodehouse


“You must remember, family is often born of blood, but it doesn’t depend on blood. Nor is it exclusive of friendship. Family members can be your best friends, you know. And best friends, whether or not they are related to you, can be your family.”
― Trenton Lee Stewart, The Mysterious Benedict Society


“I have learned that to be with those I like is enough”
― Walt Whitman


“Writers will happen in the best of families.”

― Rita Mae Brown


“The bond that links your true family is not one of blood, but of respect and joy in each other’s life. Rarely do members of one family grow up under the same roof.”
― Richard Bach, Illusions: The Adventures of a Reluctant Messiah


“Let us make one point, that we meet each other with a smile, when it is difficult to smile. Smile at each other, make time for each other in your family.”
― Mother Teresa


We wish you a peaceful and contented Christmas, wherever you are and whoever you’re with this festive season.
