National Siblings Day 2020: Quotes To Honor The Precious Bond
National Siblings Day is celebrated every year on April 10 to honor the precious bond of sisterhood and brotherhood. Claudia Evart, a New Yorker and the creator of Siblings Day Foundation, founded this day after losing her siblings at a young age.

"Sibling bonds are life-long relationships, usually lasting from early childhood to the golden years and could span up to 80 years. The sibling relationship is the longest in a person's life and endures longer than our relationship with our mothers and fathers," the foundation's website said.

Here are some quotes, collected from Good Reads and Romper, to remember the importance of siblings in one's life –

"Siblings are the people we practice on, the people who teach us about fairness and cooperation and kindness and caring, quite often the hard way." — Pamela Dugdale
"Back in time it seemed that having a sister were a tragedy. Instead it is one of the best presents my parents could have ever given me." — Sara Anzellotti

"Your parents leave you too soon and your kids and spouse come along late, but your siblings know you when you are in your most inchoate form." — Jeffrey Kluger

"There's a special kind of freedom sisters enjoy. Freedom to share innermost thoughts, to ask a favor, to show their true feelings. The freedom to simply be themselves." — Anonymous
"A sibling may be the keeper of one's identity, the only person with the keys to one's unfettered, more fundamental self." — Marian Sandmaier

"To the outside world, we all grow old. But not to brothers and sisters. We know each other as we always were. We know each other's hearts. We share private family jokes. We remember family feuds and secrets, family griefs and joys. We live outside the touch of time." — Clara Ortega
"For there is no friend like a sister in calm or stormy weather; to cheer one on the tedious way, to fetch one if one goes astray, to lift one if one totters down, to strengthen whilst one stands." — Christina Rossetti
