Sister

Famous quotes containing the word sister:

    One does not arise from such a book as Sister Carrie with a smirk of satisfaction; one leaves it infinitely touched.
    —H.L. (Henry Lewis)

    Surely a gentle sister is the second best gift to a man; and it is first in point of occurrence; for the wife comes after.
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)

    Whether, if you yield not to your father’s choice,
    You can endure the livery of a nun,
    For aye to be in shady cloister mewed,
    To live a barren sister all your life,
    Chanting faint hymns to the cold fruitless moon.
    Thrice blessed they that master so their blood
    To undergo such maiden pilgrimage.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
