Big brothers are the best

Having or being a big brother isn’t just something famous people talk about.

Many of these big brother quotes came from songs, books, or stories.

Each one of them almost made me sad I didn’t get to have a big brother (although I do enjoy being everyone’s big sister).

Hopefully, if you have a big brother, he was someone who inspired and motivated you to be better.

Maybe he was the person who introduced you to sports or the great outdoors and you have lots of wonderful memories.

Your big brother should always have your back, as any older sibling would.

We like to look out for our younger lifelong companions, after all.

Even if we do constantly sound like we know so much more just because of the order of our birth!

Sure, older siblings can be annoying, but it all comes from a place of love.

My sister likes to tell me I am like a mama duck with her gaggle of ducklings.

There are 16 years between my youngest sibling and me, and I forget sometimes that I am not their mother.
