When I come to England, I don’t claim England; I don’t own it. I feel a great kinship because of the literature and the landscape. I have great affection for Edward Thomas and Philip Larkin, but there’s still this distance: looking on at what I’m admiring, separate from what I am. And that’s OK.
Derek Walcott
Being a very tall person, I have always felt a kinship with giraffes.
Alexandra Bracken

Karyn Kusama
When I write, I have a sort of secret kinship of readers in all countries who don’t know each other but each of whom, when they read my book, feels at home in it. So I write for those readers. It’s almost a sense of writing for a specific person, but it’s a specific person who I don’t know.

The big stars I felt a kinship with were never the romantic leads. It wasn’t Steve McQueen or Robert Redford – it was people like Walter Matthau and Anthony Quinn. My big hero was Tommy Cooper.
Alfred Molina
I love the Bronte sisters, but I feel a closer kinship to the Ephron sisters, Nora and Delia, if only because their work makes me laugh more than the Brontes. I also love the Mitford sisters with their secret language and their endless letters back and forth.
Kate Klise
Eating together is the most intimate form of kinship. By scripting a work where we share the same kind of food with fish, I’m scripting our interrelationship with them.
Natalie Jeremijenko
The social aspects of food are really important to me – my favourite food-related memories are meals I’ve shared with my family and friends. Posting Instagram pictures of your food and then seeing your friends comment on it is just a modern form of that kinship.
Lisa Hanawalt
I super strongly identify with marginalized communities. I’m not at all religious, but I feel super, super Jewish. I can’t even describe the feeling, but it actually feels really similar to being gay, the kind of kinship that you feel with the LGBTQ people. That same sense of community is there with Judaism.
Troye Sivan
You stand with the least likely to succeed until success is succeeded by something more valuable: kinship. You stand with the belligerent, the surly and the badly behaved until bad behavior is recognized for the language it is: the vocabulary of the deeply wounded and of those whose burdens are more than they can bear.
Greg Boyle
You want to represent it accurately, and the accurate representation of quarantine is not that it’s sad all the time or that people are struggling constantly, it’s that there are these moments of hardship and then there are intense moments of levity and kinship and people supporting each other.
Megan Ganz
A culture of love and kinship has knitted Mississippi families together, and tied them to each other, for ages. It is what makes us special in a fast-paced and transient world. I will defend that culture against the erosion that frays societies.
Tate Reeves
I grew up in a time when people believed in duty, honor and country. My grandfathers were both officers. My father was a General in the Air Force. My brother and I were both in the Army. I’ve always felt a kinship with soldiers; I think it’s possible to support the warrior and be against the war.
Kris Kristofferson
I’m from Canada and my wife is from St. Albans, so I feel a great kinship with the Brits.
Jason Priestley

Will Self

Recognition of this kinship with the rest of the universe is necessary for understanding him, but his essential nature is defined by qualities found nowhere else, not by those he has in common with apes, fishes, trees, fire, or anything other than himself.
George Gaylord Simpson
