1: What greater thing is there for human souls than to feel that they are joined for life - to be with each other in silent unspeakable memories. ~George Eliot
2: The family. We are a strange little band of characters trudging through life sharing diseases and toothpaste, coveting one another's deserts, hiding shampoo, borrowing money, locking each other out of rooms, inflicting pain and kissing to heal it in the same instant, loving, laughing, defending and trying to figure out the common thread that bound us all together.
8: The advantage of growing up with siblings is that you become very good at fractions.
16: Call it a clan, call it a network, call it a tribe, call it a family. Whatever you call it, whoever you are, you need one.
19: Family faces are magic mirrors. Looking at people who belong to us, we see the past, present, and future.
27: Families are like fudge - mostly sweet with a few nuts.
