Family Relationships quotes by Celeste Ng
#1. Hannah, as if she understood her place in the cosmos, grew from quiet infant to watchful child: a child fond of nooks and corners, who curled up in closets, behind sofas, under dangling tablecloths, staying out of sight as well as out of mind, to ensure the terrain of the family did not change. #Quote by Celeste Ng
Family Relationships quotes by Michael Kimmel
#2. I believe that Americans are entitled. We're entitled to have a job that makes us feel like we have some dignity in our lives, that we live a life of integrity, and that we have good family relationships and our relationships with our friends and our families and our coworkers are enriching and meaningful. #Quote by Michael Kimmel
Family Relationships quotes by Pat Conroy
#3. My father managed to change his entire life after I wrote a novel about his brutal regime as a family man. It took resoluteness and courage for my father to change, and I need to acknowledge that. #Quote by Pat Conroy

Family Relationships quotes by Andrius B. Tapinas
#5. Soon we will not need people anymore, as everything will be done by automatons, including bringing up children. #Quote by Andrius B. Tapinas
Family Relationships quotes by Jacqueline Francis - Wanting To Remember, Trying To Forget
#6. Max."
It was a sharp whisper to reinstate the silence and Max did not know what kind of
acerbic retort waited on the other side of his stilted pause. Kevin had never snapped at
him before, but there was a part of him that thought it would happen today.
His brother turned to face him, his deep blue eyes lined with tears and burning with
anguish. "You're my brother," he said, his voice low and unsteady. "You already
know how I feel…and I know how you feel…so there's no need to talk about this.
And if you mention his name again, I'm gonna ask you leave."
Max nodded. That wasn't the verbal lashing he was expecting but it made him
understand his role in the situation. Kevin hadn't played video games all day for the
entertainment. He had done it for the distraction. And he hadn't allowed Max to sit in
his room for so long because he intended to open up. He had kept Max there because
he wanted the silent comfort, the pillar of strength only a brother could provide. - Kevin to Max #Quote by Jacqueline Francis - Wanting To Remember, Trying To Forget
Family Relationships quotes by Alicia Silverstone
#7. My attention since 'Clueless' has been on family, relationships, activism, the planet, and my career. #Quote by Alicia Silverstone
Family Relationships quotes by Jennifer Senior
#8. Everyone is moving at the same speed toward the future. But your children are moving at that same speed with their eyes closed. So you're the ones who've got to steer. #Quote by Jennifer Senior
Family Relationships quotes by J'son M. Lee

Family Relationships quotes by Sibella Giorello
#11. I felt a surge of love for my aunt. We disagreed about so many things, yet here was family: the people who kept dancing with you, even after the music stopped. #Quote by Sibella Giorello
Family Relationships quotes by Frank  Smith
#12. First, relax. ... And my second helpful hint is that you should not try to memorize anything you read in this book. ... My two words of advice are exemplified in what I call the Russian Novel Phenomenon. Every reader must have experienced that depressing moment about fifty pages into a Russian novel when we realize that we have lost track of all the characters, the variety of names by which they are known, their family relationships and relative ranks in the civil service. At this point we can give in to our anxiety, and start again to read more carefully, trying to memorize all the details on the offchance that some may prove to be important. If such a course is followed, the second reading is almost certain to be more incomprehensible than the first. The probable result: one Russian novel lost forever. But there is another alternative: to read faster, to push ahead, to make sense of what we can and to enjoy whatever we make sense of. And suddenly the book becomes readable, the story makes sense, and we find that we can remember all the important characters and events simply because we know what is important. Any re-reading we then have to do is bound to make sense, because at least we comprehend what is going on and what we are looking for. #Quote by Frank Smith
Family Relationships quotes by Steven Cuoco
#13. Take a moment and sit with yourself. You may find what you are looking for. #Quote by Steven Cuoco
Family Relationships quotes by Chelesbells
#14. Sometimes family is just not what you were born into. #Quote by Chelesbells
Family Relationships quotes by Courtney Miller Santo
#15. I'd put more distance between us. Having us here, always together hasn't allowed for any fondness to grow between us. #Quote by Courtney Miller Santo
Family Relationships quotes by Rick Riordan
#16. Hades," Kronos growled. "I hope you and the ladies have come to pledge your allegiance." "I'm afraid not." Hades sighed. "My son here convinced me that perhaps I should prioritize my list of enemies." He glanced at me with distaste. "As much as I dislike certainupstart demigods, it would not do for Olympus to fall. I would miss bickering with my siblings. And if there is one thing we agree on - it is that you were a TERRIBLE father. #Quote by Rick Riordan
Family Relationships quotes by Jo Ann V. Glim
#17. Son, make this world a better place with that beautiful mind of yours. And when you have a family of your own, love them beyond measure even when it means letting them be free to do what God intends them to do. #Quote by Jo Ann V. Glim
Family Relationships quotes by Kristina McMorris
#18. It's fascinating, really, when you think about it. How a person can slip into a new life as one would a new pair of shoes. At first there's a keen awareness of the fit: a stiffness at the heel, the binding of the width, the curve pressed to the arch. But with time and enough steps, the feel becomes so natural you almost forget you're wearing them at all. #Quote by Kristina McMorris
Family Relationships quotes by Christopher Paolini
#19. They shared a laugh, and then the silence that so often intruded on their discussion asserted itself once again, a gap born of equal parts weariness, familiarity and
conversely
the many differences that fate had created between those who had once gone about lives that were but variations on a single melody. #Quote by Christopher Paolini
Family Relationships quotes by Amie Ryan
#20. All small children are weathermen. #Quote by Amie Ryan
Family Relationships quotes by Gordon B. Hinckley
#21. The divine plan of happiness enables family relationships to be perpetuated beyond the grave. Sacred ordinances and covenants available in holy temples make it possible for individuals to return to the presence of God and for families to be united eternally. #Quote by Gordon B. Hinckley
Family Relationships quotes by Gillian Flynn
#22. I don't feel the need to explain my actions to her. I don't clarify, I don't doubt, I don't worry. I don't tell her everything, not anymore, but I tell her more than anyone else, by far. I tell her as much as I can. #Quote by Gillian Flynn
Family Relationships quotes by Anais Torres
#23. She didn't want to keep talking about him as if everything was okay. Worst of all, she hated sorting through his mail. Reading the hatred people had for her family and worse, reading how others immortalized him into a god for what he'd done. #Quote by Anais Torres
Family Relationships quotes by Michelle Sutton
#24. Life was good. Everything was going right. It was almost scaring him because usually when things were going this well it was the calm before the storm hit. #Quote by Michelle Sutton
Family Relationships quotes by Fatima Farheen Mirza
#25. Against her own instincts, her own intuition, because she WANTS to believe him, because she has known him his whole life and cannot fathom a change so drastic he would be made unfamiliar to her. #Quote by Fatima Farheen Mirza
Family Relationships quotes by Nina Guilbeau

Family Relationships quotes by Jeno Marz
#30. Eyuran," I addressed his Node. "What was in this one?"

He came closer and studied the huge case, which was easily twice the height of an adult Danna and had body slots for some kind of gear.

"I don't know for sure. I haven't seen this before. It resembles a gearbot sarx, but those are usually larger. Must be a new, compact model." Observing the empty sarx, a wave of bad feelings came over me.

"I also saw some of the weapon crates with broken locks."

"If someone is operating a gearbot, a bunch of guns will be the least of our worries. A hull repairer can't even begin to compete with the power of an assault exomachine." He looked around and frowned. "By the way, the whole hull repairer rack is empty. Counting the one you took out, we should have seven more roaming somewhere on the ship. #Quote by Jeno Marz
Family Relationships quotes by Rebecca Solnit
#31. I'd wrestled against the inner voice of my mother, the voice of caution, of duty, of fear of the unknown, the voice that said the world was dangerous and safety was always the first measure and that often confused pleasure with danger, the mother who had, when I'd moved to the city, sent me clippings about young women who were raped and murdered there, who elaborated on obscure perils and injuries that had never happened to her all her life, and who feared mistakes even when the consequences were minor. Why go to Paradise when the dishes aren't done? What if the dirty dishes clamor more loudly than Paradise? #Quote by Rebecca Solnit
Family Relationships quotes by Betsy L. Stone
#32. We the caregivers, have the power to do things proactively to benefit our present and future generations. #Quote by Betsy L. Stone
Family Relationships quotes by Arthur Miller
#33. I know you're no worse than most men but I thought you were better. I never saw you as a man. I saw you as my father. #Quote by Arthur Miller
Family Relationships quotes by Drenda Keesee
#34. It's one thing to tell your children about God, but when they experience God in their life and witness faith in action, it's the most life-changing experience available. #Quote by Drenda Keesee
Family Relationships quotes by Wm. Paul Young
#35. Nan is the mortar that holds the tiles of their family together. #Quote by Wm. Paul Young
Family Relationships quotes by Lisa Genova
#36. And you, Mom. I loved you. You've asked if i felt and understood that you loved me. of course I did. And you know this. I loved your love because it kept me safe and happy and wanted, and it existed beyond words and hugs and eyes. #Quote by Lisa Genova
Family Relationships quotes by Claire Cook
#37. If I didn't have a job, I might have stayed in bed until I rotted. #Quote by Claire Cook
Family Relationships quotes by Anthony Marra
#38. No one likes a braggart, and to praise your children is to curse them with misfortune, but we admit it, if only in secret, if only to ourselves: We are proud, we are so proud of them. We've given them all we can, but our greatest gift has been to imprint upon them our own ordinariness. They may begrudge us, may think us unambitious and narrow-minded, but someday they will realize that what makes them unremarkable is what kept them alive. #Quote by Anthony Marra
Family Relationships quotes by Gordon B. Hinckley
#39. I plead with you to control your tempers, to put a smile upon your faces, which will erase anger; speak out with words of love and peace, appreciation, and respect. If you will do this, your lives will be without regret. Your marriages and family relationships will be preserved. You will be much happier. You will do greater good. You will feel a sense of peace that will be wonderful. #Quote by Gordon B. Hinckley
Family Relationships quotes by Jane Rainwater
#40. Miz Ellen, what do you carry in that handbag of yours that has enough wallop to knock down a full-grown man? - Dan Landry #Quote by Jane Rainwater
Family Relationships quotes by Debbie Howells
#41. That's how birthdays were in our house. All hateful charades of pretty clothes, expensive presents, and ugly words . . . #Quote by Debbie Howells
Family Relationships quotes by Abby Norman
#42. I was the problem and the solution. #Quote by Abby Norman
Family Relationships quotes by April Paine
#43. Am I alone in this mother-food connection or does being with your mom trigger the sudden and voracious need for large amounts of mac & cheese, rice pudding, and the scraps along the side of a bowl of cookie dough? #Quote by April Paine
Family Relationships quotes by Kiera Van Gelder
#44. So at family gatherings ... I try to stick to the acceptable script. Indeed, I discover that the less I say, the happier everyone seems to be with me. I sometimes wonder if I wouldn't have been better off as a paraplegic or afflicted by some tragic form of cancer. The invisibility and periodicity of my disorder, along with how often I border on normalcy, allows them to evade my need for their understanding. And because our most enduring family heirloom is avoidance and denial of pain and suffering, I don't need much prompting to shut myself down in their presence. #Quote by Kiera Van Gelder
Family Relationships quotes by Drenda Keesee
#45. If you and your family are not where you think you should be, you need to be open for God's Spirit to point out the things that may be hindering your ability to advance. #Quote by Drenda Keesee
Family Relationships quotes by Drenda Keesee
#46. As parents, we have been entrusted with such a precious prize: the lives of eternal souls. #Quote by Drenda Keesee
Family Relationships quotes by Ben Fountain
#47. If you could figure out how to live with family then you'd gone a long way toward finding your peace. #Quote by Ben Fountain
Family Relationships quotes by Erwin W. Lutzer
#48. Every shattered dream we give to Jesus is integrated into a higher and even more blessed purpose. In short, if we have faith to believe it, there are no wasted sorrows, no wasted aspirations or dreams. Even in this life, we see that God is continually reshaping whatever we give Him. Indeed, the Christian life is a series of new beginnings. God Himself rushes in to fill the vacuum left in the wake of our own disappointments. Dreams left unfulfilled in this life will most assuredly be fulfilled in the life to come. Jesus brought our dream of healthy bodies back with Him when He was raised from the dead. Take a long look at the person sitting next to you in church. Someday he or she will be like Jesus! "Because I live, you also will live" (John 14:19). To those who are brokenhearted, Jesus assures us that fulfilling family relationships will be ours. #Quote by Erwin W. Lutzer
Family Relationships quotes by Diana Abu-Jaber
#49. What about Danny Thomas?" Uncle Hal asks. "What happened to him?
"Dead," Uncle Abdelhafiz says. "Nice Lebanese boy."
"Never mind about Danny Thomas, look what happened to your whole family! Look at your cousin Farouq, Great Uncle Ziad, Auntie Seena and Jimmy's son Jalal," Aunt Jean cuts in disapprovingly.
"Dead, dead, dead, and in jail. #Quote by Diana Abu-Jaber
Family Relationships quotes by Anne Lamott
#50. As well as we know our grown children and relatives, we don't know how much energy they have to put into simply keeping their lives together at all. #Quote by Anne Lamott
Family Relationships quotes by DaShanne Stokes
#51. Blood can help make family, but family often transcends blood. #Quote by DaShanne Stokes
Family Relationships quotes by Alice Hoffman
#52. When people related by blood were so careful with each other, when they were so very polite, there was soon nothing left to say. Only niceties that meant so little they might as well have been spoken to a complete stranger. Pass the butter, open the door, see you after school, there's rain again, it's sunny, it's cold. Has the dog eaten? Has the window been shut? Where are you going? Why is it I don't know you at all?
Such statements did not add up to anything like a family ... #Quote by Alice Hoffman
Family Relationships quotes by Brandon Sanderson
#53. Sarene finally released him, wiping her eyes, disappointed in herself for crying again. Kiin simply placed a large hand on her shoulder and led her into the dining room, where the rest of the family sat around the table, even Adien.
Lukel had been talking animatedly, but he cut off as he saw Sarene. "Speak the
name of the lion," he said, quoting a Jindoeese proverb, "and he will come to
feast. #Quote by Brandon Sanderson
Family Relationships quotes by Victor Hugo
#54. The boughs, without becoming detached from the trunk grow away from it. #Quote by Victor Hugo
Family Relationships quotes by Mike L. Hopper
#55. Because deep down you know that someone needs to keep you out of trouble. #Quote by Mike L. Hopper
Family Relationships quotes by Jojo Moyes
#56. I could barely even say Will's name. And listening to their tales of family relationships, of thirty-year marriages, shared houses, lives, children, I felt like a fraud. I had been a carer for someone for six months. I'd loved him, and watched him end his life. How could these strangers possibly understand what Will and I had been to each other during that time? How could I explain the way we had so swiftly understood each other, the shorthand jokes, the blunt truths and raw secrets? How could I convey the way those short months had changed the way I felt about everything? The way he had skewed my world so totally that it made no sense without him in it? #Quote by Jojo Moyes
Family Relationships quotes by Celia Conrad
#57. Look to the past to see what the future holds. #Quote by Celia Conrad
Family Relationships quotes by Mary Oliver
#58. A carpenter is hired- a roof repaired, a porch built. Everything that can be fixed. June, July, August. Everyday we hear their laughter. I think of the painting by van Gogh, the man in the chair. Everything wrong, and nowhere to go. His hands over his eyes. #Quote by Mary Oliver
Family Relationships quotes by Jeno Marz
#59. I thought carefully as I watched Eyuran treat Uncle Orewen's wounds. There is no one in their right mind who would assault a Danna, simply because the enemy of an individual becomes the enemy of the whole kennar. Kennar are usually related to each other, which would probably make the unlucky person the enemy of the entire Tue Dannan.

And Danna settle things the old way. #Quote by Jeno Marz
Family Relationships quotes by Chrisper Malamsha
#60. They say family's first, but family is the first to get you hurt #Quote by Chrisper Malamsha
Family Relationships quotes by Janvier Chouteu-Chando
#61. No true...father would be unconcerned about discord in his family that may cause it to disintegrate in his absence... #Quote by Janvier Chouteu-Chando
Family Relationships quotes by David Nicholls
#62. Douglas, you have an incredible capacity for missing the point. Will you listen to me, just for once? The debate does not matter. It's not about the issues. Albie might have been naive or ridiculous or pompous or all of those things, but you apologized. You said you were embarassed by him. You took the side of a bunch of arms-dealers! Bloddy bastard arms-dealers against your son - our son - and that was wrong, it was the wrong thing to do, because in a fight you side with the people you love. That's just how it is. #Quote by David Nicholls
Family Relationships quotes by Steve Goodier
#63. None of us lives in isolation. We're in it together. And some conflict along the way is inevitable. But our highest priority, when all is said and done, has to be commitment to each other –- sticking together. #Quote by Steve Goodier
Family Relationships quotes by Laura C. Schlessinger
#64. How did so many women get to this unhappy place of not understanding how truly "simple" men are in their requirements and how much benevolent power their wives have over them? Why did notions like assuaging "male ego" and using "feminine wiles" rocket into disrepute? How is it that so many women are angry with men in general yet expect to have a happy life married to one of them?
There are a number of reasons for this, and I believe they all revolve around the assault upon, and virtual collapse of, the values of religious morality, modesty, fidelity, chastity, respect for life, and a commitment to family and child-rearing. #Quote by Laura C. Schlessinger
Family Relationships quotes by Richard J. O'Brien
#65. My brother trolled recovery and support groups, searching for women with dependency issues, the way I frequented bookstores with the hope of finding a well-adjusted, intelligent woman. Between us, his record was more stellar, his sin more reprehensible; though, knowing my brother, he slept soundly through the night without ever experiencing the slightest remorse. #Quote by Richard J. O'Brien
Family Relationships quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster
#66. Large families are communities unto their own. #Quote by Kilroy J. Oldster
Family Relationships quotes by Anne Carson
#67. And the reason he cannot bear her dying is not the loss of her (which is the future) but that dying puts the two of them (now) into this nakedness together that is unforgivable. #Quote by Anne Carson
Family Relationships quotes by Diane Samuels
#68. My grandfather used to wear a black hat and coat. You are my children. You are my jewels. We old ones invest our future in you. #Quote by Diane Samuels
Family Relationships quotes by Ann-Christine Tabaka
#69. Tradition is the glue that binds past with present, and eventually with the future. As traditions are passed down, we get a chance to reach back and touch one small part of our history. #Quote by Ann-Christine Tabaka
Family Relationships quotes by Ella Frank
#70. He paused leaning over to lay his lips on hers, "It's time to feel again. Let me save you from yourself. You were drowning when I found you, but I'm not letting you go, not without a fight." He kissed her sweetly and moved back standing up and over her. Lena looked up at his out stretched hand.
"Take my hand Lena." He offered and she knew he meant it in a way that went far beyond offering to help her stand. #Quote by Ella Frank
Family Relationships quotes by Bill Cosby
#71. I'm not the boss of my house. I don't know how I lost it, I don't know when I lost it, I don't really think I ever had it. But I've seen the boss's job ... and I don't want it! #Quote by Bill Cosby
Family Relationships quotes by Tayari Jones
#72. One of the hurdles of adulthood is when holidays become measuring sticks againt which you always fall short. For children, Thanksgiving is about turkey and Christmas is about presents. Grown up, you learn that all holidays are about family and few can win there. #Quote by Tayari Jones
Family Relationships quotes by Tim Clinton
#73. Often, our misunderstandings about love are born in disruptive family relationships, where someone was either one-up or one-down to an extreme. There is an appropriate and necessary difference in the balance of power between parents and young children, but in the best situations, there should be no power struggles by the time those children have become adults - just deep connection, trust, and respect between people who sincerely care about each other.
In disruptive families, children are taught to remain one-up or one-down into adulthood. And this produces immature adults who either seek to dominate others (one-up) or who allow themselves to be dominated (one-down) in their relationships - one powerful and one needy, one enabling and one addicted, one decisive and one confused.
In relationships with these people, manipulation abounds. Especially when they start to feel out of control. #Quote by Tim Clinton
Family Relationships quotes by Melanie Bennett
#74. But in a home where grief is fresh and patience has long worn thin, making it through another day is often heroic in itself. #Quote by Melanie Bennett
Family Relationships quotes by Patrick Ness
#75. And yeah, I know most people would think it weird that two guy friends touch as much as we do, but when you choose your family, you get to choose how it is between you, too. This is how we work. I hope you get to choose your family and I hope it means as much to you as mine does to me. #Quote by Patrick Ness
Family Relationships quotes by Johnny Corn
#76. I lot of you have reached out to me today actually. I also checked on people too. I am concerned. A lot of you are depressed. Feeling down. Want to be able to have a break from your kids or spouse. Some of you are solo right now and are lonely. Some of you have fear. Don't have fear. This too will pass. BUT do have some common sense. Stay home. Wash your hands.
For the lonely, the safest sex you can have is no sex. BUT hey you meet someone after this you can have a topic of conversation. The apocalypse.
For those needing a break from your kids. Take a walk around the block. Maybe a few blocks. Then come back. If you can't do that, make sure they are doing their homework and then watch stand up comedy or listen to some music. Do something fun!
Look the whole world is having common experience. Just know you are healthy. Your love ones are too. Be creative. It may cheer you up I choose to have hope. Look I know you are down but we are all in this together. #Quote by Johnny Corn
Family Relationships quotes by Steve Pemberton
#77. What makes a family is neither the absence of tragedy nor the ability to hide from misfortune, but the courage to overcome it and, from that broken past, write a new beginning. #Quote by Steve Pemberton
Family Relationships quotes by Susan Forward
#78. Like a chemical toxin, the emotional damage inflicted by these parents spreads throughout a child's being, and as the child grows, so does the pain. #Quote by Susan Forward
Family Relationships quotes by Liane Moriarty
#79. When you divorce someone, you divorce their whole family, Madeline had told her once. #Quote by Liane Moriarty
Family Relationships quotes by Sotero M Lopez II
#80. Never sacrifice your children for the bigger house, fancier car or the 'better life'. The price you pay is hefty and non-refundable in the end. #Quote by Sotero M Lopez II
Family Relationships quotes by Gillian Duce
#81. No one said parenting was easy,but NO good parent has any right to give up.It is one labyrinth you can never quit because it seems too hard. #Quote by Gillian Duce
Family Relationships quotes by Martina Boone
#82. But the people who mattered were the people you chose instead of the people who were yours by an accident of birth. Real family was heart as much as, if not more than, blood. #Quote by Martina Boone
Family Relationships quotes by Salvador Minuchin
#83. Only the family, society's smallest unit, can change and yet maintain enough continuity to rear children who will not be "strangers in a strange land," who will be rooted firmly enough to grow and adapt. #Quote by Salvador Minuchin
Family Relationships quotes by Hare Krishna Chandrasekaran
#84. Husband and wife are like a pair of scissors, joined together for life but always moving in opposite directions. If anyone comes in between, they join together and cut them off. #Quote by Hare Krishna Chandrasekaran
Family Relationships quotes by Dina Kucera
#85. When I was about nine, my siblings and I fell out of our moving van at an intersection. My dad didn't notice for about five blocks. It was back before seat belts. It was also back before parents used any sort of common sense whatsoever. It was a time when you didn't raise your children. You just fed them and they got bigger. #Quote by Dina Kucera
Family Relationships quotes by Carrie Brownstein
#86. It was about having a box in the attic or basement or attic or garage, something we could return to over and over again, something that said, this is us, this is where we were last year, and this is where we'll stay, and this is where we'll pile on the memories, over and over again, until there are so many memories that it's blinding, the brightness of family, the way love and nurturing is like a color you can't name because it's so new. #Quote by Carrie Brownstein
Family Relationships quotes by Steve Goodier
#87. I believe a family can be like that sports team. A successful family wins as a team. But if its members are intent upon winning their own individual battles with one another, the team loses. A winning solution is to work out the differences and, when it's over, let it be over. Then they can get back in the game as a team. #Quote by Steve Goodier
Family Relationships quotes by Harriet Lerner
#88. ..All of us are vulnerable to intense, non-productive angry reactions in our current relationships if we do not deal openly and directly with emotional issues from our first family - in particular, losses and cutoffs. If we do not observe and understand how our triangles operate, our anger can keep us stuck in the past, rather than serving as an incentive and guide to form more productive relationship patterns for the future. #Quote by Harriet Lerner
Family Relationships quotes by Avril Carruthers
#89. Energetic cords are unconscious - often sentimental or compulsive - emotional ties to past and present relationships, pre-conditioned by our wounds. They are made of toxic emotions such fear, guilt, blame, hatred, obligation, grasping need or pain. #Quote by Avril Carruthers
Family Relationships quotes by Heather Babcock
#90. You don't choose these people and in the not choosing you learn tolerance. You learn to forgive. #Quote by Heather Babcock
Family Relationships quotes by Elaine Castillo
#91. You've been foreign all your life. When you finally leave, all you're hoping for is a more bearable kind of foreignness. #Quote by Elaine Castillo
Family Relationships quotes by Elaine Castillo
#92. There are mercies, and there are mercies. #Quote by Elaine Castillo
Family Relationships quotes by Joan Bauer
#93. Why do you think, A.J.," they say in unison, "that you find these boys so attractive?"
I didn't say that this fiery chemical explosion leaps from somewhere inside me. Parents don't want to hear these things. I shrugged and said nothing.
"Maybe you should try sitting on the intensity," Mom suggests, "just until your feelings catch up with reality."
"We could chain you to the water heater," Dad offers, "until these little moments pass."
You see what I'm up against. #Quote by Joan Bauer
Family Relationships quotes by Taka Sande
#94. In the beginning God did not make a church or cathedral, he made a family. In the beginning God did not appoint apostles, or prophets, or pastors etc, he appointed a husband and a wife in the covenant of marriage. In Genesis, the first mankind gathering was a wedding ceremony, and not a worship meeting. After God, the next thing that came was marriage. #Quote by Taka Sande
Family Relationships quotes by David Sedaris
#95. There are things you forget naturally-computer passwords, your father's continuing relationship with life-and then there are things you can't forget that you wish you could. #Quote by David Sedaris
Family Relationships quotes by Kate Morton
#96. It was the sibling thing, I suppose. I was fascinated by the intricate tangle of love and duty and resentment that tied them together. The glances they exchanged; the complicated balance of power established over decades; the games I would never play with rules I would never fully understand. And perhaps that was key: they were such a natural group that they made me feel remarkably singular by comparison. To watch them together was to know strongly, painfully, all that I'd been missing. #Quote by Kate Morton
Family Relationships quotes by Liz Rosenberg
#97. Every family has one living patriarch or matriarch, the final arbiter and repository of ancient family history, and Nicole's Aunt Patti was the last woman standing. #Quote by Liz Rosenberg
Family Relationships quotes by Stephanie Coontz
#98. It wasn't until the 1920s that a bare majority of children grew up in families where the father's labor purchased the family's provisions, while their mother did unpaid child care, elder care, and housework.

The Great Depression and World War II disrupted this family form, but it roared back in the 1950s, when the percentage of wives and mothers who were supported entirely by their husbands' wages reached a high that has never been equaled, before or since. #Quote by Stephanie Coontz
Family Relationships quotes by Noah Levine
#99. Like most people who decide to get sober, I was brought to Alcoholics Anonymous. While AA certainly works for others, its core propositions felt irreconcilable with my own experiences. I couldn't, for example, rectify the assertion that "alcoholism is a disease" with the facts of my own life.
The idea that by simply attending an AA meeting, without any consultation, one is expected to take on a blanket diagnosis of "diseased addict" was to me, at best, patronizing. At worst, irresponsible. Irresponsible because it doesn't encourage people to turn toward and heal the actual underlying causes of their abuse of substances.
I drank for thirteen years for REALLY good reasons. Among them were unprocessed grief, parental abandonment, isolation, violent trauma, anxiety and panic, social oppression, a general lack of safety, deep existential discord, and a tremendous diet and lifestyle imbalance. None of which constitute a disease, and all of which manifest as profound internal, mental, emotional and physical discomfort, which I sought to escape by taking external substances.
It is only through one's own efforts to turn toward life on its own terms and to develop a wiser relationship to what's there through mindfulness and compassion that make freedom from addictive patterns possible. My sobriety has been sustained by facing life, processing grief, healing family relationships, accepting radically the fact of social oppression, working with my abandonment conditioning, #Quote by Noah Levine
Family Relationships quotes by Trevor Noah
#100. Love is a creative act. When you love someone you create a new world for them. My mother did that for me, and with the progress I made and the things I learned, I came back and created a new world and a new understanding for her. #Quote by Trevor Noah
Family Relationships quotes by Dietrich Bonhoeffer
#101. The call of Jesus teaches us that our relation to the world has been built on an illusion. All the time we thought was had enjoyed a direct relation with men and things. This is what had hindered us from faith and obedience. Now we learn that in the most intimate relationships of life, in our kinship with father and mother, brothers and sisters, in married love, and in our duty to the community, direct relationships are impossible. Since the coming of Christ, his followers have no more immediate realities of their own, not in their family relationships nor in the ties with their nation nor in the relationships formed in the process of living. Between father and son, husband and wife, the individual and the nation, stands Christ the Mediator, whether they are able to recognize him or not. We cannot establish direct contact outside ourselves except through him, through his word, and through our following of him. To think otherwise is to deceive ourselves. #Quote by Dietrich Bonhoeffer
Family Relationships quotes by Soraya Diase Coffelt
#102. Letter writing can be seen as a gift because someone has taken his/her time to write and think and express love. #Quote by Soraya Diase Coffelt
Family Relationships quotes by Jinat Rehana Begum
#103. They want me to contain the raging fires within me. They need me to appreciate glowing embers, to understand that even weak flames need to be managed with a lot of careful planning. #Quote by Jinat Rehana Begum
Family Relationships quotes by Stefan Molyneux
#104. If you can't share what's important to you with the people around you, then you have no relationships. It's all just proximity, and turkey, and sports, and weather, and bullshit. #Quote by Stefan Molyneux
Family Relationships quotes by Dieter F. Uchtdorf
#105. We build deep and loving family relationships by doing simple things together, like family dinner and family home evening and by just having fun together. In family relationships love is really spelled t-i-m-e, time. Taking time for each other is the key for harmony at home. We talk with, rather than about, each other. We learn from each other, and we appreciate our differences as well as our commonalities. We establish a divine bond with each other as we approach God together through family prayer, gospel study, and Sunday worship. #Quote by Dieter F. Uchtdorf
Family Relationships quotes by Marianne Williamson
#106. Family relationships trigger childhood wounds, and those wounds often trump our rational thinking. We can't 'rationally' transcend the kind of primal pain that such relationships can arouse. #Quote by Marianne Williamson
Family Relationships quotes by Stormie O'martian
#107. The more a family can be splintered apart, the weaker and more ineffectual they become, and the more the enemy has control of their lives. One way to avoid this is through prayer.
When you cover your family relationships in prayer, whether it be with your children, parents, stepparents, brothers, sisters, grandparents, husband, or wife, there will be far fewer instances of strained or severed relationships. #Quote by Stormie O'martian
Family Relationships quotes by Pat Conroy
#108. I was a watchful boy being raised by a father I didn't admire. In a desperate way, I needed the guidance of someone who could show me another way of becoming a man. It was sometime during the year when I decided I would become the kind of man that Bill Dufford was born to be. I wanted to be the type of man that a whole town could respect and honor and fall in love with - the way Beaufort did when Bill Dufford came to town to teach and shape and turn its children into the best citizens they could be. #Quote by Pat Conroy
Family Relationships quotes by Ian McEwan
#109. When the wounded were screaming, you dreamed of sharing a little house somewhere, of an ordinary life, of a family line, connection. All around him, men were walking silently with their thoughts, reforming their lives, making resolutions. If I ever get out of this lot ... They could never be counted, the dreamed-up children, mentally conceived on the walk into Dunkirk, and later made flesh. #Quote by Ian McEwan
Family Relationships quotes by G.K. Chesterton
#110. The best way that a man could test his readiness to encounter the common variety of mankind would be to climb down a chimney into any house at random, and get on as well as possible with the people inside. And that is essentially what each one of us did on the day that he was born. #Quote by G.K. Chesterton
Family Relationships quotes by Dennis Lehane
#111. When a woman once asked Joe how he could come from such a magnificent home and such a good family and still become a gangster, Joe's answer was two-pronged: (a) he wasn't a gangster, he was an outlaw; (b) he came from a magnificent house not a magnificent home. #Quote by Dennis Lehane
Family Relationships quotes by Brooke Hayward
#112. This book is a personal memoir; but it is also a larger story-about carelessness and guilt, and the wreckage they can make of lives. #Quote by Brooke Hayward
Family Relationships quotes by Zig Ziglar
#113. To a child love is spelled T-I-M-E. #Quote by Zig Ziglar
Family Relationships quotes by Rosamunde Pilcher
#114. What a happy woman I am, living in a garden, with books, babies, birds and flowers, and plenty of leisure to enjoy them. Sometimes I feel as if I were blest above all my fellows in being able to find happiness so easily. #Quote by Rosamunde Pilcher
Family Relationships quotes by Joanna Campbell
#115. 45,000 sections of reinforced concrete - three tons each.
Nearly 300 watchtowers.
Over 250 dog runs.
Twenty bunkers.
Sixty five miles of anti-vehicle trenches - signal wire, barbed wire, beds of nails.
Over 11,000 armed guards.
A death strip of sand, well-raked to reveal footprints.
200 ordinary people shot dead following attempts to escape the communist regime.
96 miles of concrete wall.

Not your typical holiday destination.

JF Kennedy said the Berlin Wall was a better option than a war. In TDTL, the Anglo-German Bishop family from the pebbledashed English suburb of Oaking argue about this - among other - notions while driving to Cold War Berlin, through all the border checks, with a plan to visit both sides of it. #Quote by Joanna Campbell
Family Relationships quotes by Janie Chang
#116. Why is Anna Karenina considered such a great novel? It's all about adultery and the unhappiness it causes, nothing unusual in novels, surely."
"The novel's about family relationships, class, and social change. #Quote by Janie Chang
Family Relationships quotes by Julianna Deering
#117. We forget sometimes that parents--even uncles--have lives of their own. Worlds of their own. Sides of themselves we never see and never dream are there. Even when someone describes those lives to us, we can't believe them. We know better. #Quote by Julianna Deering
Family Relationships quotes by Kaimana Wolff
#118. I could feel the hard part of Mom very strongly that time. It was like a stone in her that grew bigger every time my father lost his temper, right under her heart. Feeling the stone in her calmed me down. It told me that she would always be there for me. #Quote by Kaimana Wolff
Family Relationships quotes by Will Schwalbe
#119. If our family was an airline, Mom was the hub and we were the spokes. You rarely went anywhere nonstop; you went via Mom, who directed the traffic flow and determined the priorities: which family member was cleared for takeoff or landing. Even my father was not immune to Mom's scheduling, though he was given more leeway than the rest of us. #Quote by Will Schwalbe
Family Relationships quotes by Laura Kasischke
#120. Maybe I stepped into the skin my mother left behind, and became the girl my mother had been, the one she still wanted to be. Maybe I was wearing her youth now like an airy scarf, an accessory, all bright nerves and sticky pearls, and maybe that's why she spent so much time staring at me with that wistful look in her eyes. I was wearing something of hers, something she wanted back. It was written all over her face. #Quote by Laura Kasischke
Family Relationships quotes by Jody Cantrell Dyer
#121. Adoption is grief in reverse. #Quote by Jody Cantrell Dyer
Family Relationships quotes by Neil Postman
#122. When two human beings get together, they're co-present, there is built into it a certain responsibility we have for each other, and when people are co-present in family relationships and other relationships, that responsibility is there. You can't just turn off a person. On the Internet, you can. #Quote by Neil Postman

Family Relationships quotes by Denis Markell
#125. Wait. Is a real, live adult person actually asking me details about the games I play? This is unheard of. #Quote by Denis Markell
Family Relationships quotes by Doreen Orion
#126. In WASP families, if you don't get along with someone, you have as little to do with them as possible. In Jewish families, you move next door, to make them as miserable as possible. #Quote by Doreen Orion
Family Relationships quotes by Jodi Picoult
#127. The first time someone I loved left me behind ... I didn't know how my family would balance. We had been such a sturdy little end table, four solid legs. I was sure we would now be off-kilter, always unstable. Until one day I looked more closely, and realized that we had simply become a stool. #Quote by Jodi Picoult
Family Relationships quotes by Andrew Solomon
#128. Some people are trapped by the belief that love comes in finite quantities, and that our kind of love exhausts the supply upon which they need to draw. I do not accept competitive models of love, only additive ones. #Quote by Andrew Solomon
Family Relationships quotes by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

Family Relationships quotes by Sarah Jo Smith

Family Relationships quotes by Diyar Harraz
#135. Men and women were doing at their unsurpassed when they were together. It was more or less like the sky and the ground; diverse in nature and was miles apart but they complete each other. #Quote by Diyar Harraz
Family Relationships quotes by Sharon Salzberg
#136. Mindfulness won't ensure you'll win an argument with your sister. Mindfulness won't enable you to bypass your feelings of anger or hurt either. But it may help you see the conflict in a new way, one that allows you to break through old patterns. #Quote by Sharon Salzberg
Family Relationships quotes by Alexandra York
#137. A culture is much more than politics. It is a national identity encompassing education, fine and popular arts and entertainment, science, physical and mental health, leisure activities, friend and family relationships, values, ambitions. . .everything that constitutes the basic shared core values of any country. In our case, the core value of individualism has been the common denominator linking all other aspects of our cultural distinctiveness; it is what makes The United States "America." Viable only where Liberty reigns, valuing the sovereignty of individuals is precisely what makes America exceptional; therefore, it is the culture that warrants attention because the actual, underlying disease invading the mental health of our country has arisen not from the government directly but from the injection of deleterious ideas into our entire individualistic social-economic system. Proposals #Quote by Alexandra York
Family Relationships quotes by Taka Sande
#138. As for you, do not wait until all lights are green to take off. Do not wait for all things to be in order such that they can see the future. You have to start were you are. You have to start now. You have to take action and make the commitment today. Do not accept to live another day in a miserable marriage. Apply what you are learning today and create the change that you want. #Quote by Taka Sande
Family Relationships quotes by Hilary Mantel
#139. They have never had a harsh word till today, he thinks, and perhaps what has passed is less harsh than sad: that a son can think evil of his father as if he is a stranger and you cannot tell what he might do; as if he is a traveller on the road, who might bless your journey and cheer you on, or equally rob you and roll you in a ditch. #Quote by Hilary Mantel
Family Relationships quotes by Sherman Alexie

Family Relationships quotes by Stephen Chbosky
#142. Do you enjoy holidays with your family? I don't mean your mom and dad family, but your uncle and aunt and cousin family? Personally, I do. There are several reasons for this. First, I am very interested and fascinated by how everyone loves each other, but no one really likes each other. Second, the fights are always the same. #Quote by Stephen Chbosky

Family Relationships quotes by Deborah A. Beasley
#145. That so many thousands of children around the world are available for adoption is a sign of our impoverished humanity. That so many persons around the world open their hearts and homes each year to embrace a few of these children is a lasting testimony to humanity's enduring nobility. #Quote by Deborah A. Beasley

#147. Plays are always about intense relationships, whether they're intense love relationships or family relationships or existential relationships. #Quote by David Ives
Family Relationships quotes by Joe Hill
#148. Although the ending was more John Carpenter than John Updike, Carroll hadn't come across anything like it in any of the horror magazines, either, not lately. It was, for twenty-five pages, the almost completely naturalistic story of a woman being destroyed a little at a time by the steady wear of survivor's guilt. It concerned itself with tortured family relationships, shitty jobs, the struggle for money. Carroll had forgotten what it was like to come across the bread of everyday life in a short story. Most horror fiction didn't bother with anything except rare bleeding meat. ("Best New Horror") #Quote by Joe Hill
Family Relationships quotes by Ron Currie Jr.
#149. Your relationship with your brother will be, in many ways, the most complex and bewildering of all the interpersonal connections you will form. An older brother is both authority and peer, friend and bitter enemy, partner and rival, and will play these contradictory roles to varying degrees throughout your life. At this point the rivalry is most prominent, owing to the difference in age and the resentment your brother feels toward you monopolizing your mother's attention. Try to remember, in the face of the poor treatment you receive at his hands, that more than a pure desire to cause you harm or pain, this is an effort on his part to win back some of that attention, even if it's only through being scolded and punished. #Quote by Ron Currie Jr.
Family Relationships quotes by Ben Fountain
#150. You'd think family would be the one sure thing in life, the gimme? Points you got just for being born? So much thick, meaty stuff bound you to these people, so many interlocking spirals of history, genetics, common cause, and struggle that it should be the most basic of all drives, that you would strive to protect and love one another, yet this bond that should be the big no-brainer was in fact the hardest thing. #Quote by Ben Fountain
Family Relationships quotes by Kelly Corrigan
#151. Immediate, often unsolicited, sometimes undeserved forgiveness - that is what turns the wheel of family life. #Quote by Kelly Corrigan
Family Relationships quotes by David Jackson
#152. My wife is a thief...
She takes the last cookie
Takes forever to get ready
She takes her time in the shower
Takes all of the hot water
She takes my favorite seat on the couch
Takes the high road when I lose control
My wife is a thief...
She took my last name
Took the time to get to know me, love me
She took the back seat and let me lead
Took on motherhood and the emotional toll that it brings
She took care of me the many times that I've gotten sick
Took on the pain of pregnancy so that the Jackson legacy would live on
My wife takes, and takes, and takes...
I'm so proud of my perpetual thief who stole my heart and won't give it back. #Quote by David Jackson
Family Relationships quotes by Hilary Mantel
#153. You mustn't stand about. Come home with me to dinner.'
'No.' More shakes his head. 'I would rather be blown around on the river and go home hungry. If I could trust you only to put food in my mouth – but you will put words into it. #Quote by Hilary Mantel
Family Relationships quotes by Jim Butcher
#154. Yeah well, I've never had much opportunity to fight with family," I said.
"I have," she said. "Everyone cares about everyone else. So when you get mad and say something horrible, it hurts that much more. And too many things go unsaid. That's the worst, I think. Everyone thinks they know one another better than they probably do, so you fill in the silences with things the other person never actually said. Or thought. Or thought about saying. #Quote by Jim Butcher
Family Relationships quotes by Elaine Castillo
#155. You don't know that you're going to love him. and that you won't be able to differentiate this love for him from your devouring hunger to be recognized. #Quote by Elaine Castillo
Family Relationships quotes by Anthon St. Maarten
#156. It is not true that we only get to choose our friends, but not our family. We actually choose our families before birth. It is part of our spiritual life plan before we arrive on this planet. And as that plan unfolds, some of us will be blessed with abundant love and support from our families, while others will not. Either way, it will all be part of our original plan. Because sometimes we need a lousy family to get us started on our journey towards personal growth, success and spiritual fulfillment. But if someday you reach a tipping point, where the lack of family love and support no longer serves your path towards fulfilling your true destiny... it is never too late to find a new tribe. Sometimes a life plan also demands that we choose our families more than once in a lifetime. #Quote by Anthon St. Maarten

Family Relationships quotes by Sergio Troncoso
#164. Two weeks ago, Aaron and Isaac, I learned your mother Laura has breast cancer. My heart feels impaled. These words, so useless and feeble. Laura is only thirty-five years old. Her next birthday will be in only three days. I write this letter to you, my sons, with the hope that one day in the future you will read it and understand what happened to our family.

Together, your mother and I have created and nurtured an unbreakable bond that has transformed us into an unlikely team. A Chicano from El Paso, Texas. A Jew from Concord, Massachusetts. I want you to know your mother. She has given me hope when I have felt none; she has offered me kindness when I have been consumed by bitterness. I believe I have taught her how to be tough and savvy and how to achieve what you want around obstacles and naysayers.

Our hope is that the therapies we are discussing with her doctors will defeat her cancer. But a great and ominous void has suddenly engulfed us at the beginning of our life as a family. This void suffocates me. #Quote by Sergio Troncoso

Family Relationships quotes by Fiona Dimas-Herd
#166. Many parents have experienced the fact that kids don't seem to honor their parents the way that previous generations of children did. The question we need to ask is, how did we get to this position? How did this lack of respect infiltrate even the closest family relationships? Most importantly, how can we make sure that it doesn't ruin our bond with our own teens? #Quote by Fiona Dimas-Herd
Family Relationships quotes by Ron Mayes

Family Relationships quotes by Andrea Lavinthal
#168. Unfortunately, some family members are so psychotic that no matter how hard you try to forge a healthy relationship, nothing will help. Now that you're an adult, take refuge in the fact that some things are beyond your control. You owe it to yourself to steer clear of people who are harmful to your health. #Quote by Andrea Lavinthal
Family Relationships quotes by Katie McGarry
#169. The pure menace radiating from my younger sister is undeniable. She can hate me, but I need her to know that she has something that Stella never did: a place to fall. "And if he hurts you or if anyone hurts you...you have me."
It feels unnatural, but I hug my sister. Her arms are limp at her sides, but she doesn't push me away.
"Remember, you have me," I repeat. #Quote by Katie McGarry

Family Relationships quotes by Banana Yoshimoto
#176. I suppose that's the reason I believe that as long as there is someone in charge of the household, someone who can maintain order among its members, someone who is clearly mature and established as a person, someone, in other words, like my mother, then eventually all who live under the same roof, despite blood ties or lineage, will at one point become family. Such a simple idea, but one that took a while for me to catch on to.

Oh, and another thing.

If the same people don't spend enough time in a home, even if they are connected by blood, their bonds will slowly fade away like a familiar landscape. #Quote by Banana Yoshimoto
Family Relationships quotes by Liz Murray
#177. Without a shared living situation to connect us, Daddy, Lisa, ad I spun out of one another's orbits and made independent lives of our own that barely even touched. By the time I finished my first year of high school, the truth was, we barely knew one another. #Quote by Liz Murray
Family Relationships quotes by Elizabeth Briggs
#178. Then you never really feel comfortable around most people. Especially your family, who probably never seemed to understand you. But as you grow up you find others like yourself, people who support you, embrace your weirdness, and love for who you are - and they become your new family." - Tara #Quote by Elizabeth Briggs

#180. Even after Sonja graduated secondary school at the top of her class and matriculated to the city university biology department, their parents found more to love in Natasha. Sonja's gifts were too complex to be understood, and therefore less desirable. #Quote by Anthony Marra
Family Relationships quotes by Rubin Scott
#181. As a young man I started searching for my own identity by looking into family, friends and inside

Myself. My mother always taught us to live free even when confined, meaning "never let anyone break you down physically or mentally." Since my living environment was so heavily impacted with violence and illegal activity I found myself adapting to social norms that later in my adult life would negatively affect me. For example, certain physical reactions that were acceptable, as a child would give you a reputation on the street as tough guy, don't mess with him. The same mentality later in life, as a man would label you as a predator of some sort and a woman abuser. It was hard to understand the true value of a man and all his worth and everything he is capable of achieving, when you're surrounded by pimps, hustlers and con men that all may make more money than the men with trade jobs and have more of an appealing lifestyle for the short- term progress. #Quote by Rubin Scott
Family Relationships quotes by Erica E. Goode
#182. Sibling relationships outlast marriages, survive the death of parents, resurface after quarrels that would sink any friendship. They flourish in a thousand incarnations of closeness and distance, warmth, loyalty and distrust. #Quote by Erica E. Goode
Family Relationships quotes by Jenny Han
#183. I've never gotten a love letter before. But reading these notes like this, one after the other, it feels like I have. It's like ... it's like there's only ever been Peter. Like everyone else that came before him, they were all to prepare me for this. I think I see the difference now, between loving someone from afar and loving someone up close. When you see them up close, you see the real them, but they also get to see the real you. And Peter does. He sees me, and I see him. #Quote by Jenny Han
Family Relationships quotes by Dieter F. Uchtdorf
#184. Dear sisters, many of you are endlessly compassionate and patient with the weaknesses of others. Please remember also to be compassionate and patient with yourself.
In the meantime, be thankful for all the small successes in your home, your family relationships, your education and livelihood, your Church participation and personal improvement. Like the forget-me-nots, these successes may seem tiny to you and they may go unnoticed by others, but God notices them and they are not small to Him. If you consider success to be only the most perfect rose or dazzling orchid, you may miss some of life's sweetest experiences. #Quote by Dieter F. Uchtdorf

Family Relationships quotes by Terry Pratchett
#186. The baby boomers are getting older, and will stay older for longer. And they will run right into the dementia firing range. How will a society cope? Especially a society that can't so readily rely on those stable family relationships that traditionally provided the backbone of care? #Quote by Terry Pratchett
Family Relationships quotes by Sage Steadman

Family Relationships quotes by Lionel Shriver
#188. Whoa, that's the kind of little sister I can dig!" said Edison.
"Yes, we're all alike," I said. "We cover for you, we lie for you, we take the heat for you. We clean up your messes and mollify our parents for you. We never fail to come across with undying adoration, whether or not you deserve it, and we can't take our lives as seriously as yours. We snuffle up the crumbs from your table on the rare occasions you notice we're alive. #Quote by Lionel Shriver
Family Relationships quotes by Pekwa Nicholas Mohlala
#189. Staying at Home during this lockdown period is the right time to find your life purpose within Ba Ga Mohlala family/clan. This is an opportunity to know yourself better and to understand what motivates and feeds your mind and your soul, and also to find out as to where you fit in the bigger Ba Ga Mohlala family/clan.

All members of each family/clan possess characteristics, abilities, and qualities specific to that family/clan. It is up to the family/clan to distinguish itself amongst other families/clans. #Quote by Pekwa Nicholas Mohlala

Family Relationships quotes by David W. Jones
#191. Comparing marriage to football is no insult. I come from the South where football is sacred. I would never belittle marriage by saying it is like soccer, bowling, or playing bridge, never. Those images would never work, only football is passionate enough to be compared to marriage. In other sports, players walk onto the field, in football they run onto the field, in high school ripping through some paper, in college (for those who are fortunate enough) they touch the rock and run down the hill onto the field in the middle of the band. In other sports, fans cheer, in football they scream. In other sports, players 'high five', in football they chest, smash shoulder pads, and pat your rear. Football is a passionate sport, and marriage is about passion.
In football, two teams send players onto the field to determine which athletes will win and which will lose, in marriage two families send their representatives forward to see which family will survive and which family will be lost into oblivion with their traditions, patterns, and values lost and forgotten.
Preparing for this struggle for survival, the bride and groom are each set up. Each has been led to believe that their family's patterns are all 'normal,' and anyone who differs is dense, naïve, or stupid because, no matter what the issue, the way their family has always done it is the 'right' way. For the premarital bride and groom in their twenties, as soon as they say, "I do," these 'right' ways of doing things a #Quote by David W. Jones
Family Relationships quotes by Joseph A. Micucci
#192. Family therapists view the therapeutic relationship as a means to an end rather than as an end in itself. Family therapists see beyond the problematic patterns in the family to the potential healing power of family relationships. #Quote by Joseph A. Micucci
Family Relationships quotes by Tracy Krimmer
#193. I prick my hand as I seize the rose from her. "I'll think about it." A small spot of blood forms on my palm and I realize I've been bleeding on the inside this whole time, all these years. It was only a matter of time before it showed on the outside. #Quote by Tracy Krimmer
Family Relationships quotes by Elizabeth Acevedo
#194. Your silence furnishes a dark house.
But even at the risk of burning,
the moth always seeks the light. #Quote by Elizabeth Acevedo
Family Relationships quotes by Marilynne Robinson
#195. So much had never been explained to her. They were that kind of family. Things necessary to know were passed along brother to brother, sister to sister, and this sufficient for most purposes, despite inevitable error and sensational. #Quote by Marilynne Robinson
Family Relationships quotes by Christina Westover

Family Relationships quotes by Liz Kessler
#197. For a second, I see into the future: she's old and grey, she has senile dementia and can't remember my name. The thought pretty much breaks my heart in two. #Quote by Liz Kessler
Family Relationships quotes by Anais Torres
#198. Her mother told her once that her father was sick. That the sickness made him do it. She made it seem logical. As if he was lying in a hospital bed with cancer rather than rotting in a prison cell for rape and murder. #Quote by Anais Torres
Family Relationships quotes by Liz Moore
#199. Only humans can hurt one another, Ada thought; only humans falter and betray one another with a stunning, fearsome frequency. As David's family had done to him; as David had done to her. And Ada would do it too. She would fail other people throughout her life, inevitably, even those she loved best. #Quote by Liz Moore
Family Relationships quotes by David Sedaris
#200. mates, to my sisters and me, are seen mainly as shadows of the people they're involved with. they move. They're visible in direct sunlight. But because they don't have access to our emotional buttons-- because they can't make us twelve again, or five, and screaming-- they don't really count as players. #Quote by David Sedaris
Family Relationships quotes by A.M. Madden
#201. Her sordid family history ultimately caused my family's demise. How can I continue to loath, hate, and despise a man who created the love of my life? We both have some soul searching to do. She needs to come to terms with who she is and where she came from. I need to come to terms with the hatred that's filled my heart for so many years. #Quote by A.M. Madden
Family Relationships quotes by Hilary Boyd
#202. Sixty is heaven," she [bohemian Aunt Norma] told Jeanie as they sat having tea. "The world is done with you, you become to all intents and purposes invisible, particularly if you are a woman. I like to think of it as your third life. There's childhood, then adult conformity - work, family, responsibility - then just when everyone assumes it's all over and you're on the scrap heap of old age, freedom! You can finally be who you are, not what society wants you to be, not who 'you' think you ought to be. #Quote by Hilary Boyd
Family Relationships quotes by Avijeet Das
#203. Happiness can be found inside our own hearts and not in some shallow relationships. People with integrity know how precious time is and they refuse to waste it on people who don't bother to respect it! #Quote by Avijeet Das
Family Relationships quotes by Megan Smith
#204. He stopped walking when we reached his truck, looked from the ground to my lips and then he took a step closer to me, pushing me until my back was up against the cold wet truck. He reached up and cupped my face. "I'm done trying to stay away," he sighed then continued.
"I can't do it anymore. I need you like my life depends on it." The rain was streaming down on us but right now, I did not care.
"I just need you." He gently pulled my head to him and whispered, "I am going to kiss you now. #Quote by Megan Smith
Family Relationships quotes by Russell Crowe
#205. Some of the things you read you get an immediate reaction to so I've stopped reading things now. I do worry about my family though. Some people do try some nasty things to get at them and try and get a reaction from them. #Quote by Russell Crowe
Family Relationships quotes by Ben Fountain
#206. Not that she means anything by it, he knows. This is simply her lifelong habit of moderation at work, her need to tamp everything down to the routine, the modest, the tepid everyday. He understands the whole concept of boundaries, but there's a point where this mania for normalizing turns toxic. #Quote by Ben Fountain
Family Relationships quotes by Tim Berners-Lee
#207. The Semantic Web isn't inherently complex. The Semantic Web language, at its heart, is very, very simple. It's just about the relationships between things. #Quote by Tim Berners-Lee
Family Relationships quotes by Jenna Morasca
#208. Family is a unique gift that needs to be appreciated and treasured, even when they're driving you crazy. As much as they make you mad, interrupt you, annoy you, curse at you, try to control you, these are the people who know you the best and who love you. #Quote by Jenna Morasca
Family Relationships quotes by Fahmid Hassan Prohor

Family Relationships quotes by Theodore H. White
#213. A genuine primary is a fight within the family of the party - and, like any family fight, is apt to be more bitter and leave more enduring wounds than battle with the November enemy. #Quote by Theodore H. White

#215. We are the relationships that make us; we have our being in and through relationships that place us into reality, and therefore we are open ontologically to the possibility of encounter. #Quote by Andrew Root
Family Relationships quotes by T.F. Hodge
#216. Claiming to love self, but willingly default to cheating at the first sign of trouble is nothing short of playing yourself. Your ego may feel avenged - temporarily - but your heart and soul, the true self, will suffer the long term affects of karma's justifiable sting. #Quote by T.F. Hodge
Family Relationships quotes by Darnell Lamont Walker
#217. You were only there to be a healer. A fixer. To prepare them for the next love. Not yours. #Quote by Darnell Lamont Walker
Family Relationships quotes by Sam Harris
#218. These people say things like "If a liberal intellectual like you can't speak about the link between specific doctrines and violence without being defamed as a bigot, what hope is there for someone like me, who has to worry about being killed by her own family or village for merely expressing doubts about God?" So yes, I'm aware that one can't speak in Pakistan as I do here. #Quote by Sam Harris
Family Relationships quotes by Mark Romang
#219. I'm not very good at relationships, Claire. In fact, my track record is abysmal." Claire gently squeezed Annie's shoulder. "It takes a concerted effort to make any relationship work. Your walk with God is no different. It's a lifelong process that won't be perfected until you reach Heaven. And I must warn you, Annie, just because you're a believer now doesn't mean your life will become easier. In fact, it might become much harder. #Quote by Mark Romang
Family Relationships quotes by Jesse McCartney
#220. All I watch is the Food Network. I took a cheesemaking class a few weeks ago, and I told my family and friends to only get me kitchen stuff on my birthday. I'm into every kind of cookbook and anything by Anthony Bourdain. I'd love to own a restaurant if I could find the right chef. #Quote by Jesse McCartney
Family Relationships quotes by Megory Anderson
#221. Our society has tried to make death invisible, thinking that if we ignore it long enough it will go away. Often we as family and loved ones are so afraid of death that even mentioning the word to terminal patients is taboo. We think the dying are oblivious to what is happening to them. Sadly, a dying person frequently feels afraid to bring it up him or herself. When I enter a hospital room I often hear a sigh of relief. At last, someone is here to help the family come to terms with what is playing out before them. Death has too long been the elephant in the living room, while everyone awkwardly discusses the weather. #Quote by Megory Anderson
Family Relationships quotes by Mavis Staples

Family Relationships quotes by Gregor Collins
#224. I love cheetahs. Every moment of every day is spent in fear of dying a terrible death yet they always carry themselves elegantly, remain loyal to their family, and never complain about anything. #Quote by Gregor Collins

Family Relationships quotes by Andrew Sean Greer
#230. Perhaps love is a minor madness. And as with madness, it's unendurable alone. The one person who can relieve us is of course the sole person we cannot go to: the one we love. So instead we seek out allies, even among strangers and wives, fellow patients who, if they can't touch the edge of our particular sorrow, have felt something that cuts nearly as deep. #Quote by Andrew Sean Greer
Family Relationships quotes by Kevin Jonas
#231. When you marry someone, you marry their entire family. #Quote by Kevin Jonas
Family Relationships quotes by Josephine Angelini
#232. Do you know how marriage was defined in ancient Greece? Noel said in a calmer tone. Its really simple. A virgin goes to mans house with the family gathered as witnesses. The virgin and the man share a fire, a meal, and a bed. If the girl wasn't a virgin in the morning, then the couple was considered married. That's it #Quote by Josephine Angelini
Family Relationships quotes by Jiddu Krishnamurti
#233. The fact is that life is like the river: endlessly moving on, ever seeking, exploring, pushing, overflowing its banks, penetrating every crevice with its water. But you see, the mind won't allow that to happen to itself. The mind sees that it is dangerous, risky to live in a state of impermanency, insecurity, so it builds a wall around itself; the wall of tradition, of organized religion, of political and social theories. Family, name,property,the littel virtues that we have cultivated - these are all within the walls, away from life. Life is moving, impermanent, and it ceaselessly tries to penetrate, to break down these walls, behind which there is a confusion an misery. The gods within the walls are false gods, and their writings and philosophies have no meaning because life is beyond
Think on these things chap. 17 #Quote by Jiddu Krishnamurti
Family Relationships quotes by Terry Pratchett
#234. One of my ancestors fought in the War of the Roses", she announced haughtily, without looking round, "and in those wars you were supposed to wear a red rose or a white rose to show whose side you were on, but he was very attached to a pink rose called Lady Lavinia, which we still grow in the Hall, actually, so he ended up fighting both sides at once. He lived, too, because everyone thought it was bad luck to kill a madman. That's what you need to know about my family: We might be pigheaded and stupid, but we do fight #Quote by Terry Pratchett
Family Relationships quotes by David Mamet
#235. In my family, in the days prior to television, we liked to while away the evenings by making ourselves miserable, solely based on our ability to speak the language viciously. #Quote by David Mamet
Family Relationships quotes by Sergio Troncoso
#236. Julia, is everything all right?" her father said in a raspy voice. "It's three in the morning, m'ija."

"I'm sorry. I have to talk to you; it's something very important. Papá, Mamá, I've made a decision, and I wanted to share it with you. I've decided to convert to the Muslim religion."

"What?" Pilar screamed. "Are you out of your mind?"

"Julia, what are you saying?"

"I want to be a Muslim. I've even chosen a new Muslim name, Aliyah."

"Julia, are you drunk?"

"No, Papá, I'm not drunk. I've thought about this for a very long time. I think it's the right thing for me, a way to follow God. #Quote by Sergio Troncoso
Family Relationships quotes by Jiddu Krishnamurti
#237. I depend on my son because I want him to be something that I am not. He is the fulfillment of all my hopes, my desires; he is my immortality, my continuation. So my relationship with my son, with my wife, with my children, with my neighbors, is a state of psychological dependency, and I am fearful of being in a state in which there is no dependence. I do not know what that means, therefore I depend on books, on relationship, on society, I depend on property to give me security, position, prestige. And if I do not depend on any of these things, then I depend on the experiences that I have had, on my own thoughts, on the greatness of my own pursuits.

The problem is not how not to depend, but just to see the fact that we do depend. Where there is attachment there is no love. Because you do not know how to love, you depend, and…where there is dependency there is fear. I am talking of psychological dependency, not of your dependence on the milkman to bring you milk, or your dependence on the railway, or on a bridge. It is this inward psychological dependency - on ideas, on people, on property that breeds fear. So, you cannot be free from fear as long as you do not understand relationship, and relationship can be understood only when the mind watches all its relationships, which is the beginning of self-knowledge. #Quote by Jiddu Krishnamurti
Family Relationships quotes by Santino Fontana
#238. It doesn't make sense, it's not logical, it's not a safe profession or a smart profession if you wanna make money or have a living or have a family. So the fact that we keep doing [theatre] means we're getting something from it that is almost childlike in its innocence. #Quote by Santino Fontana
Family Relationships quotes by Foxy Brown
#239. My family never missed a visit in eight months, ever. I cried coming out. I didn't cry coming in. There's a big difference. I believe that God put me there for a reason, Incarceration is serious. #Quote by Foxy Brown

Family Relationships quotes by Heather Demetrios
#243. I don't like seeing myself on camera." But that's not it
that sounds shallow, like I'm worried I'll look fat or something. "It's like somebody is walking on my grave. TV immortalizes you. The episodes are what my family would watch if I died. #Quote by Heather Demetrios
