Quotes About Family

It has been a while since I’ve brushed on the “Quotes” category after Positive Attitude Quotes, so, here I am presenting you the best quotes on family and familial love – Because Family Is Everything.

You certainly didn’t ask for them, and you can’t trade’em, but out of the billions of human beings on our planet, they’re the ones who know you best. They’re the ones who cherish you, and whom you should cherish in return – whether they’re your biological family or otherwise.

Even though it’s easy to forget at times, a family is the most important thing in the world. This could mean your mother, your father, your siblings, your spouse, your grandparents, your aunts, your uncles, your cousins, your in-laws – but for some, it’s simply those with whom we share unconditional love.

Nothing is better than going home to family and eating good food and relaxing. Peace is the beauty of life. It is sunshine. It is the smile of a child, the love of a mother, the joy of a father, the togetherness of a family.

Of course, families are complicated – these deep relationships can carry lots of baggage and hurt as well. Given their complexity and importance in our loves, its no wonder that throughout the course of history, people from all walks of life have pondered the complexities and conundrums of familial love.

Check out these quotes on family for musings about the complicated nature of our family ties:

I can go on forever about these quotes and family importance/love. I’ll continue in a second part for the same.

(PS – Before I forget I cannot stress how important this is – Please don’t forget to mention it to your loved ones that you love them. If they did wrong, tell them. Resolve issues. There is always a solution to find. Do not be ignorant or leave like a coward. Your family or your loved ones deserve your kindness. Show it as much as possible.)

  1. Loved your balance of black and white, and all the wonderful quotes as well.
    I do believe families are forever. I first watched this video from a fb posting.
    It made me cry then, and it makes me cry now.
    I have a quote I have never published, so someone else may get it now, as it is meant to be shared.
    “Love is often times difficult to give; but it is impossible to take back” pmb.
    Thanks, and love.

    1. Awesome! ❤
      That quote is reality. Wow. Just wow. You made me realize my own truth. Thank you!

      And yes, I never knew of this video until last month while exploring YouTube. It made me cry and it has such a powerful message. Thought of sharing it here.

  2. Peace is the beauty of life…very well said… The sunshine gets more enjoyable when you spend time with your family members…Thank you for the nice write up… Liked.

  3. The quotes you included are a great mix of the sad, happy, and funny of family, conveying, as you promised, the complexity of family dynamics. I most love the one taken from Lilo & Stitch: “Family means no one gets left behind or forgotten.” That is my favorite line in the movie.

    Family really is everything. It was when my family and I worked with foster children in China for four years that I realized that, in the end, the love of a family trumps all other “needs.”

    1. I’m glad to hear. It’s amazing how we forget to express our love toward our family and seldom count those blessings, instead ad try to seak it from outside when it’s been home the entire time. Staying true to yourself is something really important.

      Lots of love and blessings to you and your family. Hope you stay happy and healthy! ❤

  4. I loved this quote in particular ““There’s nothing that makes you more insane than family. Or more happy. Or more exasperated. Or more… secure.”– Jim Butcher
