Family Quarrels

I read this quote this morning and felt compelled to post it somewhere. It made me sad, mostly because it is so undeniably true. For all its sadness, there is something beautiful about it too... a reminder of the frailty of relationships, the importance of family, and the need to treat each other with respect. Words truly can cause "splits that won't heal."

"Family quarrels are bitter things. They don't go by any rules. They're not like aches or wounds; they're more like splits in the skin that won't heal because there's not enough material." F. Scott Fitzgerald
