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.
You can kiss your family and friends good-bye and put miles between you, but at the same time you carry them with you in your heart, your mind, your stomach, because you do not just live in a world but a world lives in you.
Home is people. Not a place. If you go back there after the people are gone, then all you can see is what is not there any more.
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
Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi
I have never met a person whose greatest need was anything other than real, unconditional love. You can find it in a simple act of kindness toward someone who needs help. There is no mistaking love…it is the common fiber of life, the flame that heats our soul, energizes our spirit and supplies passion to our lives.
Love is always bestowed as a gift—freely, willingly, and without expectation. We don’t love to be loved, we love to love.
Dr. Leo Buscaglia
The most beautiful discovery true friends make is that they can grow separately without growing apart.
Friendship improves happiness and abates misery, by the doubling of our joy and the dividing of our grief.
Marcus Tullius Cicero
A friend is one that knows you as you are, understands where you have been, accepts what you have become, and still, gently allows you to grow.
There are good ships and wood ships, ships that sail the sea, but the best ships are friendships, may they always be!
