Famous quotes containing the word sister:

    I should fear the infinite power and inflexible justice of the almighty mortal hardly as yet apotheosized, so wholly masculine, with no sister Juno, no Apollo, no Venus, nor Minerva, to intercede for me, thumoi phileousa te, kedomene te.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    My sister and I, you will recollect, were twins, and you know how subtle are the links which bind two souls which are so closely allied.
    Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (1859–1930)
