Siblings share the same childhood, the same parents, and the same home. As a result, brothers and sisters share many of the same memories, hopes, and dreams. Even as children, your brother and sister would probably do anything for you.
When it comes to secrets, you and your brother or sister probably trust each other with the most important secrets that are guarded from the rest of the world. A great brother and sister will know everything about you, the good and the bad, and will still continue to love you. They will be supportive and try to help you be the best that you can be.
Even when we love our siblings, they can also really drive us crazy. From having difficulty sharing toys to feeling like they get more attention in the family than you do, our sisters and brothers can make us jealous, frustrated, and sometimes even furious.
Sometimes your brother or sister will hurt you or you will hurt your them. You might feel like never dealing with your brother or sister again. But more often than not, you will forgive each other and repair your relationship because you know how much you mean to each other.
Even when you drive each other crazy, you and your brother or sister know that you have each other’s backs. If someone upsets you or messes with you, then they will be the first one to come to your aid.
A big brother or sister will especially not want anyone to mess with her little sibling. She/he will protect you almost as if you are his/her child. Growing up, our big brothers or sisters are often our role models. We aspire to be like them and often copy them in many ways.
Sometimes, we will mirror every little thing they do. From the clothes they wear to the music they listen to, sometimes we just want to be like our big siblings because we really look up to them.
From being best friends forever to acknowledging the times that they drive us crazy, the brother sister quotes below can help you express how you feel about your him/her. Share these sibling quotes to let your special brother or sister know how much you value them and to remind them of the irreplaceable bond that you share as brothers/sisters.

Our big brothers and sisters can teach us a lot about the world. But little siblings can teach us some things too. While brothers/sisters will have many similarities and can seem like peas in a pod, they can also be very different in terms of interests and personalities. While we learn a lot from our parents, there is a lot that we can learn from our siblings as well.
A brother/sister can teach you how to be a great friend before you even go to school and begin to make friends outside of the family. They can also teach you how to share, how to be patient, and how to be understanding.
When times are tough, your brother or sister can also teach you how to be forgiving and how to weather a storm. They can teach you to get up again after you have fallen down. When you are ready to give up, your brother or sister can help give you the motivation to keep going.
So make sure you let your brother or sister know how special they are to you. Choose one or choose many of these above-mentioned quotes and send them to your beloved sister or brother. You can share these quotes on social media, send them by email, write them on the card or simply text them to your brother or sister. Show your siblings that you love and appreciate them.
