“You are born into your family and your family is born into you. No returns. No exchanges.”
Elizabeth Berg, The Art of Mending

“In every conceivable manner, the family is a link to our past, a bridge to our future.”
Alex Haley

“He'd learned long ago: perfection isn't what families are all about.”
Jamie Ford, Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet

“Human lives are not pieces of string that can be separated out from a knot of others and laid out straight. Families are webs. Impossible to touch one part of it without setting the rest vibrating. Impossible to understand one part without having a sense of the whole.”
Diane Setterfield, The Thirteenth Tale
