Rea Lidde

«Like Mum and that bastard.” “You mean Da?”»

G.A. Aiken

«My sister and I are so close that we finish each other’s sentences and often wonder who’s memories belong to whom.»

Shannon Celebi

«No matter how many years passed or how much responsibility each assumed, they still managed to bicker like bitchy teenagers on a regular basis. In some way, though, each found it comforting; it reminded them how close they really were: Acquaintances were always on their best behavior, but sisters loved each other enough to say anything.»

Lauren Weisberger

«In the beginning we start with roses. The king’s flower right? Only they wilt in less than a day, especially when exposed to the elements. But Carnations? Oh, what a beautiful flower. They come in every color. True, some are painted, but that doesn’t mean they are less beautiful, and they never wilt.»

Ruth McLeod-Kearns

«There's folly in her stride»

«And the kids?"»

«Just always remember to listen to your heart’s song…it will keep you alive»

S.R. Crawford

«Hasten Little Maiden»


«For a moment amongst the crowd, I saw you. I've since found out it's common for people separated from someone they love to keep seeing that loved one amongst strangers; something to do with recognition units in our brain being too heated and too easily triggered. This cruel trick of the mind lasted only a few moments, but was long enough to feel with physical force how much I needed you.»

Rosamund Lupton

«Never hold resentments for the person who tells you what you need to hear; count them among your truest, most caring, and valuable friends.»

Mike Norton

«I felt like an animal, and animals don’t know sin, do they?»

Jess C. Scott

«A friend is the wax that keeps the flame lit, an enemy is the wind that blows it out.»

Anthony Liccione

«Everyone has always said I look like Bailey, but I don't.»

Jandy Nelson

«I never had a childhood. Not like the rest of them anyway. I had a starting point from which I have never stopped running.»

Dave Matthes

«I used to live with someone of the opposite sex. It’s called a sister, and I don’t have one.»

Jarod Kintz

«I'm thinking about the cat dying, Dulcie and her knife against my throat, Mrs Irvin and her St Thomas bone... But never my sister. A brother rarely thinks about his sister.»

Louis Nowra

«I was so mad, I reached into the drawer for her fake sushi eraser and put it in my pocket. Serves her right for being such a big, fat, Eggo-scarfing liar.»

Sarah Darer Littman

«A sister should set her brother up with one of her friends, unless her only friend is her sister.»
