Discover a series of quotes about family that capture the essence of parental love, care, attention, unity and support that you find with your loved ones. The family is the nucleus from which children raised with love go out into the world and help it to be better. The family is often defined as the social group in which children are protected, educated, and developed as responsible individuals. And yet the family is much more than that.

The most beautiful quotes about family remind us how important it is to always have people around you who love you as you are. Family is our emotional and moral support. It is the family that helps us to discover the world and to which we return when we want to discover ourselves.

The family brings together great-grandparents, grandparents, parents and grandchildren, blood relatives and even distant but emotionally close relatives. Many times, the family gathers very close friends, who would jump on the fire for their loved ones. In the past, they were called blood brothers… because blood, water is not made… as an old Romanian proverb says about the power and unity of a true family.
