Famous quotes containing the word sister:

    of the satanic thistle that raises its horned symmetry
    flowering above sister grass-daisies’ pink tiny
    bloomlets angelic as lightbulbs—
    Allen Ginsberg (b. 1926)

    Whether changes in the sibling relationship during adolescence create long-term rifts that spill over into adulthood depends upon the ability of brothers and sisters to constantly redefine their connection. Siblings either learn to accept one another as independent individuals with their own sets of values and behaviors or cling to the shadow of the brother and sister they once knew.
    Jane Mersky Leder (20th century)

    Whoever does the will of God is my brother and sister and mother.
