It is not easy living with one's family. With so many oddballs that make up a family, it is tough to find common ground. Yet, a family is the most refined of all human relationships. Mother, sister, brother, father, and you may make up a family. But what ties you all together is that invisible umbilical cord... the cord of love and sacrifice. Your family is your cornerstone. So the next time you want to pooh-pooh family, read these famous family quotes.
