Author Quotes That Celebrate Family And Friends | Writer’s Relief

Author Robert Brault once said, “The advantage of growing up with siblings is that you become very good at fractions.” If you’ve ever spent time at a holiday gathering carefully dividing a chocolate bar under the watchful eyes of brothers, sisters, and cousins, you know what he’s talking about. As we gather to celebrate upcoming holidays and milestones, Writer’s Relief has some great author quotes that celebrate the unique bond of family, friends, and found family.

15 Author Quotes About Family And Friends

“I do think that families are the most beautiful things in all the world.” —Louisa May Alcott

 

“It’s not gender that makes a family; it’s love. You don’t need a mother and a father; you don’t necessarily even need two parents. You just need someone who’s got your back.” —Jodi Picoult

 

“I sustain myself with the love of a family.” —Maya Angelou

 

“A true friend never gets in your way unless you happen to be going down.” —Arnold H. Glasow

 

“When everything goes to hell, the people who stand by you without flinching—they are your family.” —Jim Butcher

 

“You must remember, family is often born of blood, but it doesn’t depend on blood. Nor is it exclusive of friendship. Family members can be your best friends, you know. And best friends, whether or not they are related to you, can be your family.” —Trenton Lee Stewart

“After a good dinner one can forgive anybody, even one’s own relations.” —Oscar Wilde

“Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another: ‘What! You too? I thought I was the only one.’” —C.S. Lewis

“Family isn’t something that’s supposed to be static, or set. People marry in, divorce out. They’re born, they die. It’s always evolving, turning into something else.” —Sarah Dessen

“This is part of what a family is about, not just love. It’s knowing that your family will be there watching out for you. Nothing else will give you that. Not money. Not fame. Not work.” —Mitch Albom

“Family is more than blood.” —Cassandra Clare

“Family is a life jacket in the stormy sea of life.” —J.K. Rowling

“I am who I am because of the people who influenced me growing up, and many of them were gay. No one has any right to tell anyone what makes a family.” —Drew Barrymore

“I don’t think that any family has a function. I just think that a family is. It just exists.” —Justin Torres

“One friend with whom you have a lot in common is better than three with whom you struggle to find things to talk about.” —Mindy Kaling

While these authors give us many reasons to be thankful for our friends and family, we here at Writer’s Relief are also thankful for writers and the gift of their words! If you’d like to share a few words of gratitude about your writing life, you can post your message on our virtual gratitude wall.
