Sisters quotes



If you don’t understand how a woman could both love her sister dearly and want to wring her neck at the same time, then you were probably an only child. ~Linda Sunshine

I have an older sister who sounds, unfortunately, exactly like me, and we sound like our mother did.

Sisters may be women who grew up under the same roof as you—or they may be dear friends, soul-kin you meet along the way.

For many, sisterhood means having a friend who will be there for life, and who was there in its beginning. Siblings can share childhood memories with you that nobody else can connect to in quite that special way. Your sister may drive you crazy, or she may inspire you.

Maybe you have an older sibling you look to for guidance, or maybe you have a younger sister who is looking to you for that inspiration. Sisterhood is a very special relationship, and these sister quotes celebrate that.

Reading quotes about sisters can help you to find perspective on your relationship when you are feeling troubled. And when you are happy in your relationship with your sibling, these quotes can help you to find the words to express it.
