Did your brother greet you with a black eye or an embrace when you were a kid?
Did you spend your days tussling, playing outside, or competing for the highest score on your latest console game with your friends?
Your brother – whether he was older or younger than you – most likely played a significant influence in creating who you are today, regardless of how you spent your childhood together.
Maybe your connection with your brother is tumultuous, or maybe it’s the most lovely, loving relationship you’ve ever had – or maybe it’s both, depending on the day!
The bond between brothers, as well as between brothers and sisters, is special.
Brothers, on the other hand, do not have to be blood relatives. Perhaps the “brothers” you consider aren’t even men who grew up in the same house or area as you.
They’re just amazing pals you meet later in life – at college, at work, or through a shared interest – who have always been there for you.
What distinguishes a brother like this is their ability to be dependable and trustworthy in any situation.
To honor the fraternal bond, we’ve compiled a selection of the best brother quotes available. These are quotes from authors, intellectuals, and celebrities who have expressed their thoughts about siblings.
