Quotes about Brothers

Boys will be boys...



Peruse this collection of quotes about brothers to find a quote to express your sentiments about your brother.

I don't know about you... but my relationship with my older brother was tumultuous. I think the comparison made by my father between me and my brother set us up for a very strained relationship.

I used to get good grades in school and my brother did not.

I dreaded grade card day because I knew I'd be a target of my brother's frustration after my father would scold him saying "why can't you be more like your sister and get good grades?"

One day my brother's rage got the best of him and he put my head in a vice and beat me with a hammer. After that point, I sustained a traumatic head injury that changed my life. I lost my photographic memory and was no longer was an intellectual threat to him anymore.

I have but one heartfelt message to my brother:

I truly felt so bad for you having to be constantly compared to me,
I never held you responsible for my injuries. I hope you will come to peace with that situation as I have.

Love,

Linda

Children of the same family, the same blood, with the same first associations and habits, have some means of enjoyment in their power, which no subsequent connections can supply...
~ Jane Austen, Mansfield Park, 1814

Our siblings. They resemble us just enough to make all their differences confusing, and no matter what we choose to make of this, we are cast in relation to them our whole lives long.
~ Susan Scarf Merrell

Sibling relationships - and 80 percent of Americans have at least one - 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.
~ Erica E. Goode, "The Secret World of Siblings," U.S. News & World Report, 10 January 1994

Siblings are the people we practice on, the people who teach us about fairness and cooperation and kindness and caring - quite often the hard way.
