A happy family is but an earlier heaven.

But sometimes you find yourself so deeply in love with your family members that you cannot find words to express your love to them.

We cannot choose our family but we can choose to love and forgive.

A family doesn’t just consist of a few people who are related to each other – it is much more than that – a family is a meaningful connection.

We don’t just relate to each other by blood but more importantly, we relate to each other by experience. An unbreakable bond.

In a chaotic world, a family is there to comfort and protect.

It is a source of inspiration.

A family is a group of people whom you will hold dear to your heart no matter what happens.

So in case if you have forgotten, here are some of the most inspiration – albeit short – family quotes to remind you why family matters.

Enjoy!

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.

Conclusion

Did these family quotes inspire you?

If so, please share a quote in your family chat or on your social media account so you can be reminded of the love and power of having a family.

You may not be as lucky to be born or raised in a loving family. But you can raise and give birth to a loving family with your significant other.

Don’t let your past define your future because family is not defined by blood.

It is more than that.

Family isn’t always blood. It’s the people in your life who want you in theirs. The ones who accept you for who you are. The ones who would do anything to see you smile, and who love you no matter what.

Anonymous

Raise a family that is connected by love, experience, and support. You don’t want a ‘family’ that is merely connected by blood.

Thanks for reading.

I hope you are encouraged and inspired by these quotes.

Sincerely,
