Quote of the day, #40

…except that I can’t remember the exact quote and google’s no help. It’s something along the lines of “You can choose your friends but you’re stuck with family”. Anyone know it?

Anyway, If I had to choose family I’d pick exactly the one I have. It’s my youngest brother’s birthday today so here’s a little something from the excellent picture generator, Letter James:

Cinema boarding reads Happy Birthday to the best brother in the world

    A big grinning Happy Birthday to young brother! If he’s anything at all like his sister, he’s a grand guy.

    My favorite version of that quote is, “You can choose your friends, but you can’t choose your family. But you can choose the insane asylum where you have them all put away”.

    I searched and searched, but couldn’t find an attribution.

    i enjoy, “God gave us our family. Thank God we can choose our friends.”

    Yeah, it’s “You can choose your friends, but you can’t choose your family.”

    Or alternatively “Blood is thicker than water. Relatives are thicker than everything”
