Best brother quotes and sayings (139+)

Whether you have a brother, sister, or both – you are an extremely lucky person. 

The love you have for your siblings and vice versa, goes far beyond splashing around in the same gene pool and plastic kiddie pool in the backyard.

They’re crucial parts of your world, and it doesn’t matter if you’re older or younger, you’ve had their backs since day one.

As much as there’s nothing wrong with being an only child, a brother can always make you feel welcome and part of something incredibly special.

You always have someone to call when you need to vent, have hot tea to spill, or can’t sleep. 

Brothers are the gifts that keep on giving.

They teach you so many life lessons growing up, and most importantly, they show you how to be the best possible friend you could be. 

Thanks to brothers, we are more  receptive to the golden qualities we seek in a true friend.

Yeah, they’ve set the bar pretty high, but you’ve probably made some amazing friends  because of those standards.

We don’t know what we’d do without brothers in our world. When they’re around, there’s no way you’re not living your best life.
