Brothers and Sisters

To the outside world, we all grow old. But not to brothers and sisters. We know each other as we always were. We know each other's hearts. We share private family jokes. We remember family feuds and secrets, family griefs and joys. We live outside the touch of time.  
- Clara Ortega
A sibling may be the keeper of one's identity, the only person with the keys 
to one's unfettered, more fundamental self. 
- Marian Sandmaier
Our siblings push buttons that cast us in roles we felt sure we had let go of long ago - 
the baby, the peacekeeper, the caretaker, the avoider.... It doesn't seem to matter how much 
time has elapsed or how far we've traveled. 
- Jane Mersky Leder
Sometimes being a brother is even better than being a superhero. 
- Marc Brown
Siblings are the people we practice on, the people who teach us about fairness and cooperation 
and kindness and caring, quite often the hard way. 
- Pamela Dugdale
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. 
- Dylan Thomas
