brother - quotes and descriptions to inspire creative writing
Brothers soon learn that love is the constant and anger is temporary, that this is the way real bonds are.
With a brother on either side I was protected and protector.
I never saw my brother become a giant until the day I needed protection.
Brother you are the mirth that brings oxygen to my soul; that cheeky joy I need to breathe so deeply. There is so much comfort in being with you, a kind of rest that's pure.
Every blessing is a curse and they come in equal strength. This is the balance of the universe. My brother was the greatest blessing God could ever have brought and thus my responsibility for him was of the same measure. If you won't accept the curse, you can never be blessed.
Sometimes the memory of him makes me sad, little brothers can get you like nothing else. Max - fiercely loyal and overprotective, like I ever needed that. Me who got leniency from the cops and him who got the full whack of the law every time. But that’s white girls and brown boys for you, equal and separate under the law. I have to stop thinking of him now. The wish for him to be here fills me with such rage and bitterness that I think I will explode. One day I will grieve for him, but first I would have to accept he is really gone - and though I dug his grave myself there’s part of me that holds the memory back. There’s part of me that will never believe he won’t come bouncing around some corner to laugh at me for falling for this elaborate joke.
