blood is thicker than water

It is not flesh and blood but the heart which makes us fathers and sons. ~Johann Schiller

The happiest moments of my life have been the few which I have passed at home in the bosom of my family. ~Thomas Jefferson

At the end of the day, a loving family should find everything forgivable. ~Mark V. Olsen and Will Sheffer, Big Love, "Easter"

We cannot destroy kindred: our chains stretch a little sometimes, but they never break. ~Marquise de Sévigné

Other things may change us, but we start and end with the family. ~Anthony Brandt

To us, family means putting your arms around each other and being there. ~Barbara Bush
