    Sister Bernice: I have looked everywhere. In all of the usual places.
    Mother Abbess: Sister Bernice, considering that it’s Maria, I would suggest you look in some place unusual.
    Ernest Lehman (b. 1920)

    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)

    For she has made me the laily worm
    That lies at the fit o’ the tree,
    An’ my sister Masery she’s made
    The machrel of the sea.
