The Greatest Inspirational
Brother Quotes

This page is a collection of inspirational brother quotes.

I had the opportunity to grow up with a younger brother. During the years our relationship has evolved and grown in many ways.

I remember early on I would tease and push him around, because that's what big brothers are suppose to do :) Then as we got older, I wound up protecting him and eventually that turned into a friendship.

Now we are both adults and he has become a great friend. Someone who knew me as a child and stood beside me, looking up to me as I changed and grew.

I didn't always appreciate having a younger brother, but as I look back, I can see how much the relationship has benefited us both. Enjoy this page of inspiring brother quotes. Let your big brother or little brother know how special they have been in your life.

Brother Quotes

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

my confidant and my betrayer,
my sustainer and my dependent,

I don't believe an accident of birth makes people sisters or brothers.
It makes them siblings, gives them mutuality of parentage.
Sisterhood and brotherhood is a condition people have to work at.
-Maya Angelou

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...

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.

More Brother Quotes

Blessed is the servant who loves his brother
as much when he is sick and useless
as when he is well and can be of service to him.
And blessed is he who loves his brother
as well when he is a far off as when he is by his side,
and who would say nothing behind his back he might not, in love, say before his face.
-St Francis of Assisi

It was nice growing up with someone like you, someone to lean on,
someone to count on... someone to tell on!

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

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

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

Sometimes being a brother is even better than being a superhero.

Oh, how I hated that little boy.
And how I love him too.

There's no other love like the love from a brother.
-Astrid Alauda

We know one another's faults, virtues, catastrophes,
mortifications, triumphs, rivalries, desires,
and how long we can each hang by our hands to a bar.
We have been banded together under pack codes and tribal laws.
-Rose Macaulay

More Brother Quotes

When brothers agree, no fortress is so strong as their common life.

A brother shares childhood memories and grown-up dreams.

If you want to know how your girl will treat you after marriage,

-Sam Levenson

All for one and one for all
My brother and my friend
What fun we have
The time we share
Brothers 'til the end.

A sibling may be the keeper of one's identity,
the only person with the keys to one's unfettered, more fundamental self.
-Marian Sandmaier

As we grew up, my brothers acted like they didn't care,
but I always knew they looked out for me and were there!

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.

the people who teach us about fairness
and cooperation and kindness and caring-
quite often the hard way.

A friend is a brother your heart chose.
