The in-laws are in town for a few days and we are heading out to tour the city with them. Here are some quotes about family for your reading pleasure (quotes from goodreads.com):

Family Time

“Happiness is having a large, loving, caring, close-knit family in another city.” 
― George Burns

“The capacity for friendship is God’s way of apologizing for our families.” 
― Jay McInerneyThe Last of the Savages

“HAPPINESS [is] ONLY REAL WHEN SHARED” 
― Jon KrakauerInto the Wild

“When everything goes to hell, the people who stand by you without flinching — they are your family. ” 
― Jim Butcher

“Families are messy. Immortal families are eternally messy. Sometimes the best we can do is to remind each other that we’re related for better or for worse…and try to keep the maiming and killing to a minimum.” 
― Rick RiordanThe Sea of Monsters

“That’s what people do who love you. They put their arms around you and love you when you’re not so lovable.” 
― Deb Caletti

“You must remember, family is often born of blood, but it doesn’t depend on blood. Nor is it exclusive of friendship. Family members can be your best friends, you know. And best friends, whether or not they are related to you, can be your family.” 

― Trenton Lee StewartThe Mysterious Benedict Society

“I sustain myself with the love of family.” 
― Maya Angelou

“You can measure the happiness of a marriage by the number of scars that each partner carries on their tongues, earned from years of biting back angry words.” 
― Elizabeth GilbertCommitted: A Skeptic Makes Peace with Marriage

“Strangers are just family you have yet to come to know.” 
― Mitch Albom

Enjoy the day.
