Famous quotes containing the word brother:

    Take two kids in competition for their parents’ love and attention. Add to that the envy that one child feels for the accomplishments of the other; the resentment that each child feels for the privileges of the other; the personal frustrations that they don’t dare let out on anyone else but a brother or sister, and it’s not hard to understand why in families across the land, the sibling relationship contains enough emotional dynamite to set off rounds of daily explosions.
    Adele Faber (20th century)

    There is only one place for the women who served and that is on the same site with our brother soldiers. These women have touched thousands of those names on the wall. We have to be at that spot, physically, spiritually and emotionally.
    Diane Carlson Evans (b. c. 1943)

    Many of our German friends before the war would come as our guest to hunt wild pig. I refused to invite Goering. I could not tolerate his killing a wild pig— seemed too much like brother against brother.
