Famous quotes containing the word sisters:

    The incomprehensibleness of women is an old theory, but what is that to the curious wondering observation with which wives, mothers, and sisters watch the other unreasoning animal in those moments when he has snatched the reins out of their hands, and is not to be spoken to!... It is best to let him come to, and feel his own helplessness.
    Margaret Oliphant (1828–1897)

    ‘Tis not Apollo can, or those thrice three
    Castalian sisters sing, if wanting thee.
    Horace, Anacreon both had lost their fame.
    Had’st thou not filled them with thy fire and flame.
    Robert Herrick (1591–1674)
