Irreplaceable



There are certain things that can't be replaced in life whether you want to, try to, or like it or not. And these are the simple little things that we often take for granted in good times and count on during bad times. Siblings - that's what I call them.

To some, siblings may be a big bother. But to me, they are both irritating specimens and perhaps the only ones who can actually put up a genuine smile on my face. 

So, dear brothers and sister, if you are reading this, you know your elder brother loves you. =)

*******************************************************

Sometimes being a brother is even better than being a superhero. - Marc Brown

Our brothers and sisters are there with us from the dawn of our personal stories to the inevitable dusk. - Susan Scarf Merrell

It snowed last year too: I made a snowman and my brother knocked it down and I knocked my brother down and then we had tea. - Dylan Thomas

Our siblings push buttons that cast us in roles we felt sure we had let go of long ago - the baby, the peacekeeper, the caretaker, the avoider.... It doesn't seem to matter how much time has elapsed or how far we've traveled. - Jane Mersky Leder

To the outside world we all grow old. But not to brothers and sisters. We know each other as we always were. We know each other's hearts. We share private family jokes. We remember family feuds and secrets, family griefs and joys. We live outside the touch of time. - Clara Ortega

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

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. - Pamela Dugdale

The family is one of nature's masterpieces. - George Santayana

There is a little boy inside the man who is my brother... Oh, how I hated that little boy. And how I loved him too. - Anna Quindlan
