National Sisters Day is celebrated on the first Sunday of August every year, and this year it falls on Aug. 1. On this day, show your appreciation to one of the strongest bonds and also acknowledge the joy that sisterhood brings to your life.

Having a sister is a blessing. No matter how bossy or annoying your sister is with her demands, she will always be supportive of you and have your back.

Here are 10 special quotes, some funny and some sentimental, collected from Bustle and Brainy Quote to share today:

1. “Is solace anywhere more comforting than that in the arms of a sister?”- Alice Walker

2. “But the love of sisters needs no words. It does not depend on memories, or mementos, or proof. It runs as deep as a heartbeat. It is as ever present as a pulse.”- Lisa Wingate

3. “Sister to sister we will always be, a couple of nuts off the family tree.”

4. “If you don’t understand how a woman could both love her sister dearly and want to wring her neck at the same time, then you were probably an only child.”

5. “I smile because you’re my sister. I laugh because you can’t do anything about it.”

6. "A sister can be seen as someone who is both ourselves and very much not ourselves — a special kind of double,” — Tina Morrison

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 Georgina Rossetti

8. "Being a twin, and being my sister's twin, is such a defining part of my life that I wouldn't know how to be who I am, including a writer, without that being somehow at the centre." — Taiye Selasi

9. "A sister is a gift to the heart, a friend to the spirit, a golden thread to the meaning of life."— Isadora James

10. “Your sister knows everything to say to piss you off. But sisters tend to be each other's biggest champion and also their hardest critics.” — Erin Foster
