"Sisters are friends we have for a lifetime."
Catherine Pulsifer |
"What sets sisters apart from brothers and also from friends
is a very intimate meshing of heart, soul and the mystical cords of memory."
"You should never look down on a sister except to pick her up."
Helping Others |
"Whatever you do they will love you; even if they don't love you
they are connected
to you till you die. You can be boring and tedious with sisters,
whereas you have to put on
a good face with friends."
Being Yourself |
"The desire to be and have a sister is a primitive and
profound one that may have everything or nothing to do with the
family a woman is born to. It is a desire to know and be known by
someone who shares blood and body, history and dreams, common
ground and the unknown adventures of the future, darkest secrets
and the glassiest beads of truth."
"We may look old and wise to the outside world.
But to each other, we are still in junior school."
"A sister is both your mirror - and your opposite."
"Children of the same family have some means of enjoyment in their power,
which no subsequent connections can supply."
"But whenever she thanks the givers for favors great and small,
she thinks of the good little sister who gave her more than they all."
"Sisters through thick or thin. I 'm glad were friends."
"But however you might rebel, there was no shedding them.
They were your responsibility and there was no one to relieve you of them.
They called you Sis. All your life people called you Sis, because that was
what you were, or what you became - big sister, helpful sister, the one
upon whom everyone depended, the one they all came to for everything
from help with homework to a sliver under the fingernail."
"If you don't understand how a woman could both love
her sister dearly and want to wring her neck at the same time,
then you were probably an only child."
"To have a loving relationship with a sister is not simply
to have a buddy or a confident - it is to have a soulmate for life."
"Sisters are connected throughout their lives by a special bond-
whether they try
to ignore it or not. For better or for worse, sisters remain sisters,
until death do them part."
"Sisters share the scent and smells - the feel of a common childhood."
