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)

    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.
    Pamela Patrick Novotny (20th century)

    If twins are believed to be less intelligent as a class than single-born children, it is not surprising that many times they are also seen as ripe for social and academic problems in school. No one knows the extent to which these kind of attitudes affect the behavior of multiples in school, and virtually nothing is known from a research point of view about social behavior of twins over the age of six or seven, because this hasn’t been studied either.
