There is no one quite like a brother. Tell him so this Sunday with these National Sibling Day quotes to share with your brother. When I look back on my own childhood, almost every memory I have includes my older brother. These days, we may have both become adults, we may be on opposite sides of country, and we may only see each other a handful of times throughout the year — but none of that can erase our bond. Your brother grows up with you, which means that he knows you on a deeper level than any friend or coworker ever could. That is pretty special if you ask me.
These quotes get to the heart of having a brother. Whether your brother is older or younger, it doesn't make too much of a difference, because a bro is a bro. Sisters are awesome too, but there are some things a brother will teach you that a sister just can't. If you have a brother, make sure you tell him how much you love him this National Sibling Day. In fact, make sure you tell him regularly. He deserves to hear it more than once a year — but these quotes are a good start.
