It got us thinking about family and how strong all of us can be when we’re forced to. How brave we can become when we must support the people around us. Sickness is a time of great emotional and physical exhaustion. But that challenge also highlights how inspirational our friends, families and supporters can really be in our lives.

This collection of quotes about family and friends is about celebrating those relationships. To those conversations, words of wisdom and pieces of motivation we use to get us through the dark and difficult times. We hope these inspire you to find the strength inside you to overcome anything put in your path. And the motivation to support those around you that need it most.
