About Sisters

A Sister is God's way of proving He doesn't want us to walk alone.

There's a special kind of freedom sisters enjoy. Freedom to share innermost thoughts, to ask a favor, to show their true feelings. The freedom to simply be themselves.
~ Unknown

Sisters are blossoms in the garden of life.
~ Unknown

Sisters annoy, interfere, criticize. Indulge in monumental sulks, in huffs, in snide remarks. Borrow. Break. Monopolize the bathroom. Are always underfoot. But if catastrophe should strike, sisters are there. Defending you against all comers.
~ Pam Brown

Husbands come and go; children come and eventually they go. Friends grow up and move away. But the one thing that's never lost is your sister.

~ Unknown

In the cookies of life, sisters are the chocolate chips.

Sisters don't need words. They have perfected a language of snarls and smiles and frowns and winks - expressions of shocked surprise and incredulity and disbelief. Sniffs and snorts and gasps and sighs - that can undermine any tale you're telling.
~ Pam Brown

We know one another's faults, virtues, catastrophes, mortifications, triumphs, rivalries, desires, and how long we can each hang by our hands to a bar. We have been banded together under pack codes and tribal laws.

~ Unknown

We acquire friends and we make enemies, but our sisters come with the territory.

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.
~ Deborah Moggach

She is your mirror, shining back at you with a world of possibilities. She is your witness, who sees you at your worst and best, and loves you anyway. She is your partner in crime, your midnight companion, someone who knows when you are smiling, even in the dark. She is your teacher, your defense attorney, your personal press agent, even your shrink. Some days, she's the reason you wish you were an only child.
~ Barbara Alpert

A sister is both your mirror - and your opposite.
~ Elizabeth Fishel

Brothers and sisters are as close as hands and feet.
~ Vietnamese Proverb

When mom and dad don't understand, a sister always will.
~ Unknown

To the outside world we all grow old. But not to brothers and sisters. We know each other as we always were. We know each other's hearts. We share private family jokes. We remember family feuds and secrets, family griefs and joys. We live outside the touch of time.
~ Clara Ortega

Our brothers and sisters are there with us from the dawn of our personal stories to the inevitable dusk.
~ Susan Scarf Merrell

Children of the same family, the same blood, with the same first associations and habits, have some means of enjoyment in their power, which no subsequent connections can supply...

~ Emilia Larson

You're the friend who means so much to me, the one I'm thinking of right now, the one who feels like family in my heart.

Little Sister

A younger sister is someone to use as a guinea-pig in trying sledges and experimental go-carts. Someone to send on messages to Mum. But someone who needs you - who comes to you with bumped heads, grazed knees, tales of persecution. Someone who trusts you to defend her. Someone who thinks you know the answers to almost everything.
~ Pam Brown

To the outside world we all grow old. But not to brothers and sisters. We know each other as we always were. We know each other's hearts. We share private family jokes. We remember family feuds and secrets, family griefs and joys. We live outside the touch of time.
~ Clara Ortega

Between sisters, often, the child's cry never dies down. "Never leave me," it says; "do not abandon me."
~ Louise Bernikow

Return to Index of Sister Quotes

We may look old and wise to the outside world. But to each other, we are still in junior school.

Our siblings push buttons that cast us in roles we felt sure we had let go of long ago - the baby, the peacekeeper, the caretaker, the avoider.... It doesn't seem to matter how much time has elapsed or how far we've traveled.
~ Jane Mersky Leder

If sisters were free to express how they really feel, parents would hear this: "Give me all the attention and all the toys and send Rebecca to live with Grandma."
~ Linda Sunshine

Sibling relationships - and 80 percent of Americans have at least one - outlast marriages, survive the death of parents, resurface after quarrels that would sink any friendship. They flourish in a thousand incarnations of closeness and distance, warmth, loyalty and distrust.
~ Erica E. Goode, "The Secret World of Siblings,"
U.S. News & World Report, 10 January 1994

Sisterhood

Help one another, is part of the religion of sisterhood.
