How do people make it through life without a sister?
Having a sister is like having a best friend you can't get rid of. You know whatever you do, they'll still be there.
Sisters share the scent and smells... the feel of a common childhood.
Sisters is probably the most competitive relationship within the family, but once sisters are grown, it becomes the strongest relationship.

Is solace anywhere more comforting than in the arms of a sister.
You can kid the world. But not your sister.
A sister can be seen as someone who is both ourselves and very much not ourselves - a special kind of double.
What's the good of news if you haven't a sister to share it?
Sisters is probably the most competitive relationship within the family, but once the sisters are grown, it becomes the strongest relationship.
I know some sisters who only see each other on Mother's Day and some who will never speak again. But most are like my sister and me... linked by volatile love, best friends who make other best friends ever so slightly less best.
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.
It was nice growing up with someone like you - someone to lean on, someone to count on... someone to tell on!
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.
One of the best things about being an adult is the realization that you can share with your sister and still have plenty for yourself.

You keep your past by having sisters. As you get older, they're the only ones who don't get bored if you talk about your memories.
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.
She takes my hand and leads me along paths I would not have dared explore alone.

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.
Gail Sheeny, from "Sisters"
A sister is both your mirror - and your opposite.
Sisters are blossoms in the garden of life.
It's hard to be responsible, adult and sensible all the time. How good it is to have a sister whose heart is as young as your own.
