Famous quotes containing the word sister:

    It’s babe feminism—we’re young, we’re fun, we do what we want in bed—and it has a shorter shelf life than the feminism of sisterhood. I’ve been a babe, and I’ve been a sister. Sister lasts longer.
    Anna Quindlen (b. 1952)

    England! awake! awake! awake!
    Jerusalem thy sister calls!
    Why wilt thou sleep the sleep of death,
    And close her from thy ancient walls?
    William Blake (1757–1827)

    Not all conflicts between siblings are good, of course. A child who is repeatedly humiliated or made to feel insignificant by a brother or sister is learning little except humiliation and shame.
    Lawrence Kutner (20th century)
