Famous quotes containing the word twins:

    Sisters we are, yea, twins we be,
    Yet deadly feud ‘twixt thee and me;
    For from one father are we not,
    Thou by old Adam wast begot,
    But my arise is from above,
    Anne Bradstreet (c. 1612–1672)

    What strikes many twin researchers now is not how much identical twins are alike, but rather how different they are, given the same genetic makeup....Multiples don’t walk around in lockstep, talking in unison, thinking identical thoughts. The bond for normal twins, whether they are identical or fraternal, is based on how they, as individuals who are keenly aware of the differences between them, learn to relate to one another.
    Pamela Patrick Novotny (20th century)

    There is absolutely no evidence—developmental or otherwise—to support separating twins in school as a general policy. . . . The best policy seems to be no policy at all, which means that each year, you and your children need to decide what will work best for you.
