Not everyone is privileged to have a sister. Some people may have a love-hate relationship with their siblings, but these cute sister quotes will touch your heart and reveal unique blessing of having a sister and how this relationship can never be replaced.
Australian poet Pam Brown describes sisters succinctly: An older sister
is a friend and defender - a listener, conspirator, a counselor and a
sharer of delights. And sorrows too.
In cartoonist Charles Schulz’s Peanuts comics series, the
siblings Linus and Lucy are often portrayed in constant disagreement
with each other. There is no doubt, though, that Lucy is Linus’ favorite
sister…as if he had a choice!
['Tis winter. Lucy walks by Linus, who is trying to look innocent.]
Lucy: If you hit me with that snowball, you're going to be sorry! (She walks on. And gets hit.)
Linus: Oh I'm sorry! You're right - I'm very sorry! I hit my own sister with a snowball and now I'm really sorry - I'm so sorry! You were really right! How did you know I'd be so sorry? I'm really sorry! (He gets slogged.) How sorry can you get?
English novelist and poet Charlotte Bronte knew what it was like to have
loving sisters, and has this to say about the experience: “You know
full well as I do the value of sisters' affections: There is nothing
like it in this world.”
The American poet and feminist Adrienne Rich, on the other hand, seems
to view sisters as mysterious creatures she nevertheless finds
compelling and intriguing, as with the lines of her poem Women:
My three sisters are sitting
on rocks of black obsidian.
For the first time, in this light, I can see who they are.
My first sister is sewing her costume for the procession.
She is going as the Transparent lady
and all her nerves will be visible.
My second sister is also sewing,
at the seam over her heart which has never healed entirely,
At last, she hopes, this tightness in her chest will ease.
My third sister is gazing
at a dark-red crust spreading westward far out on the sea.
Her stockings are torn but she is beautiful.

Kahlil Gibran, who is both an artist and a poet, also had two younger sisters. He described being surrounded by them, as well as by other women in his life, with a mix of sentimentality and humor:
"Women opened the windows of my eyes and the doors of my spirit. Had it not been for the woman-mother, the woman-sister, and the woman-friend, I would have been sleeping among those who seek the tranquility of the world with their snoring."
And who can forget these immortal lines of In My Life, as sung by The Beatles, which is most fitting ode to a favorite sister?
Though I know I'll never lose affection
For people and things that went before
I know I'll often stop and think about them
In my life, I love you more.

People may come and go in your life, but if you have sisters, rest assured they will be with you through thick and thin. Amy and Jo March, as played by Kirsten Dunst and Winona Ryder in the 1994 movie adaptation of Little Women reinforced this notion:
Younger Amy March: Do you love Laurie more than you love me?
Jo: Don't be silly! I could never love anyone more than I love my sisters.
