National Siblings Day is celebrated annually on April 10 to honor and show love toward the brothers and sisters in one’s life.

The day was founded by Claudia Evart, a New Yorker, who lost her siblings at a very young age. The Siblings Day Foundation was established by Evart in 1997. The day follows the spirit of Mother’s and Father’s Day, and is a celebration to honor family values, according to the foundation's website. 

Here are 10 quotes about siblings, collected from Good Reads, to share with family.

1. "To the outside world, we all grow old. But not to brothers and sisters. We know each other as we always were. We know each other's hearts. We share private family jokes. We remember family feuds and secrets, family griefs and joys. We live outside the touch of time." — Clara Ortega

2. "There's no other love like the love for a brother. There's no other love like the love from a brother." — Terri Guillemets

3. "Siblings are the people we practice on, the people who teach us about fairness and cooperation and kindness and caring, quite often the hard way." — Pamela Dugdale

4. "If you want to do really important things in life and big things in life, you can't do anything by yourself. And your best teams are your friends and your siblings." — Deepak Chopra

5. "There's a special kind of freedom sisters enjoy. Freedom to share innermost thoughts, to ask a favor, to show their true feelings. The freedom to simply be themselves." — Anonymous

6. "Back in time it seemed that having a sister were a tragedy. Instead it is one of the best presents my parents could have ever given me." — Sara Anzellotti

7. "For there is no friend like a sister in calm or stormy weather; to cheer one on the tedious way, to fetch one if one goes astray, to lift one if one totters down, to strengthen whilst one stands." — Christina Rossetti

8. "Sisters annoy, interfere, criticize. Indulge in monumental sulks, in huffs, in snide remarks. Borrow. Break. Monopolize the bathroom. Are always underfoot. But if catastrophe should strike, sisters are there. Defending you against all." — Pam Brown

9. "Your parents leave you too soon and your kids and spouse come along late, but your siblings know you when you are in your most inchoate form." — Jeffrey Kluger

10. "A sibling may be the keeper of one’s identity, the only person with the keys to one’s unfettered, more fundamental self." — Marian Sandmaier
