Famous quotes containing the words relatives and/or close:

    When mother’s relatives visited,
    delicacies were cooked.
    When father’s guest arrrived,
    mother swelled and had a fit.
    Punjabi proverb, trans. by Gurinder Singh Mann.

    A really tight friendship is when you start to really care about the person. If he gets sick, you kind of start worrying about him—or if he gets hit by a car. An everyday friend, you say, I know that kid, he’s all right, and you don’t really think much of him. But a close friend you worry about more than yourself. Well, maybe not more, but about the same.
    —Anonymous Fifteen-Year-Old Boy. As quoted in Children’s Friendships by Zick Rubin, ch. 3 (1980)
