Quotes

We all get so caught up in our own lives at time that we let our relationships with the people who matter to us most slip through the cracks, especially our relationships with our siblings.

You probably don't spend a whole lot of time each day looking for brother and sister quotes you can share to make sure they know just how much you love them, but taking a moment to do say can be deeply meaningful.

Of course, we also have occasions like National Siblings Day to kick us into that mode if we weren't already.

According to CNN, National Siblings Day was founded by Claudia Evart in honor of her two siblings, both of whom she lost early in life. The date — April 10 — was her late sister Lisette’s birthday. So, let this be a gentle reminder to show your brothers and sisters how much your appreciate them while you still can.

Sibling bonds are some of the strongest people forge. Your siblings may be the first people you tell when something good happens, the last people you want to see when you're struggling and yet the ones you need most when you do. If you're lucky your siblings can be a source of true strength and inspiration throughout your entire life.

A sister bond is extra special, and according to studies, it may be the strongest bond of all. Having a sister can have a positive impact on your life.

Here's a great message to write in a card or text to your sister to show her how thankful you are: "To my sister: You are my best friend, my human diary, and my other half. You mean the world to me and I love you."

Or, if your sister prefers humor to happiness, this sister quote is a funny way to celebrate your partner in crime:  "There is no problem that sisters cannot confront, combat, plot against, ignore, make fun of, drown in chocolate sauce, or run over with the car."

If your brother is a little less sentimental, and you just want a good Instagram caption, here's one for a brother picture:  “First a brother, then a bother, now a friend.”

Whether it's National Siblings Day, their birthday, or just because, take a moment to find the perfect brother quote or sister quote for your sibling to let them know how grateful you are to have them.
