Famous quotes containing the words cities and/or sister:

    To walk through the ruined cities of Germany is to feel an actual doubt about the continuity of civilization.
    George Orwell (1903–1950)

    Whether, if you yield not to your father’s choice,
    You can endure the livery of a nun,
    For aye to be in shady cloister mewed,
    To live a barren sister all your life,
    Chanting faint hymns to the cold fruitless moon.
    Thrice blessed they that master so their blood
    To undergo such maiden pilgrimage.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
