These family quotes really capture the essence of what a family really is. When something is wrong with a family member it can do two things to us; either bring us closer together or tear us apart and the latter happens to relatives not families.
Any two people sharing a common blood line can call themselves relatives but only when our lives are turned upside down can we truly see if we are a part of a family.
"I don't care how poor a man is; if he has family, he's rich."
--Dan Wilcox and Thad Mumford, "Identity Crisis," M*A*S*H

-- George Santayana, The Life of Reason

Most family quotes try to show you the good aspects of family. This quote shows you the bad side; the side that can ruin your life forever. There are many people out there who feel a lot closer to their friends than they do to the members of their own family; most of the time they're a lot nicer to their friends too.
When water runs thicker than the bond you have with your family, every effort should be made to restore that relationship. The longer you wait to jump start the relationship the harder it is going to be.
Families are like fudge - mostly sweet with a few nuts.
