I don't believe an accident of birth makes people sisters or brothers. It makes them siblings, gives them mutuality of parentage. Sisterhood and brotherhood is a condition people have to work at.
Sometimes being a brother is even better than being a superhero.
I, who have no sisters or brothers, look with some degree of innocent envy on those who may be said to be born to friends.
Sweet is the voice of a sister in the season of sorrow.
You don't choose your family. They are God's gift to you, as you are to them.
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.
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.
Your parents leave you too soon and your kids and spouse come along late, but your siblings know you when you are in your most inchoate form.
Your siblings are the only people in the world who know what it's like to have been brought up the way you were.
You can kid the world, but not your sister.
I think I'm funny because my family, my siblings were funny.
Help one another is part of the religion of our sisterhood.
I sought my soul, but my soul I could not see. I sought my God, but my God eluded me. I sought my brother and I found all three.
When brothers agree, no fortress is so strong as their common life.
Siblings that say they never fight are most definitely hiding something
It snowed last year too: I made a snowman and my brother knocked it down and I knocked my brother down and then we had tea.
Having lots of siblings is like having built-in best friends.
It takes two men to make one brother.
If you have a sister and she dies, do you stop saying you have one? Or are you always a sister, even when the other half of the equation is gone?
I know it's a cliche, but the whole family is just whacked. I mean, we're all out of our minds. They're the funniest, most eccentric bizarre people I've ever met, my siblings.
