In today’s post, we are going to explore some soul-stirring quotes on brotherhood and brotherly love; one bond that ties the world together.
Love is universal but what we have done as mankind is confine it between just men and women. Beyond a bond between a guy and a girl, love exists in the form of diverse relationships – between a father and a son, a mom and a daughter, between friends, a kid and his or her pet, two strangers who see each other one their way to work everyday and more. How beautiful is it?
From the time when when your friend proxies your attendance in college to the time he or she does not bail out when you are in a crisis. Brotherhood is what keeps our life going, taking some burden off our shoulders through its support.
If you have such people in your life, you are blessed and as a way of celebrating them, share the post with them. Remember that if love unites two people from the opposite gender, brotherhood unites the world without bothering about cast, creed, education, financial stability or more.
