Today is April 10th, and welcome to The Daily Quote – a podcast designed to kickstart your day in a positive way. I’m your host, Andrew McGivern, and thanks for being here.

On this fine day, we celebrate National Siblings Day, a day to honour the bond between siblings. Whether you have a brother or sister who’s been your partner in crime or your arch-nemesis (sometimes both on the same day), today’s the day to appreciate those shared childhood memories, inside jokes, and the unwavering support that only siblings can provide. Our quote today is from Marc Brown, an American author and creator of the Arthur book series.

He said,

“Sometimes being a brother is even better than being a superhero.”

This quote touches on the extraordinary role siblings play in our lives. They are the unsung heroes, the ones who stand by us through thick and thin, who know us better than we know ourselves, and who remain our steadfast friends from childhood to adulthood.

In the spirit of National Siblings Day, let’s reflect on this quote and the superhero-like qualities of siblings. They might not wear capes or fly (except in those childhood games where the couch was a fortress and the floor was lava), but they possess special powers like the ability to make us laugh when we’re down, to keep our darkest secrets, and to always be there when we need them the most.

So, today, let’s celebrate these everyday superheroes in our lives. Maybe give them a call, share a laugh about those absurd childhood antics, or simply let them know you’re thinking about them. After all, as Marc Brown reminds us, sometimes the greatest heroes are the ones we call brother or sister.

I have a brother and a sister and I can think of lots of absurd antics from when we were kids. And now I have three kids… a boy and two twin girls and man… there is never a boring moment with them around. Antics Galore.

Thank you for joining me today on The Daily Quote. Remember, every day is an opportunity to make a positive impact in your own life and in the lives of those around you. Until next time, take care and cherish your siblings, your unsung heroes.
