Is solace anywhere more comforting than that in the arms of a sister.
A sister can be seen as someone who is both ourselves and very much not ourselves - a special kind of double.
There is a little boy inside the man who is my brother... Oh, how I hated that little boy. And how I love him too.

When brothers agree, no fortress is so strong as their common life.
It takes two men to make one brother.
