–Siblings

It was nice growing up with someone like you – someone to lean on, someone to count on… someone to tell on!

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

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

Our siblings. They resemble us just enough to make all their differences confusing, and no matter what we choose to make of this, we are cast in relation to them our whole lives long.
Susan Scarf Merrell

Sibling relationships – and 80 percent of Americans have at least one – outlast marriages, survive the death of parents, resurface after quarrels that would sink any friendship. They flourish in a thousand incarnations of closeness and distance, warmth, loyalty and distrust.
Erica E. Goode

The highlight of my childhood was making my brother laugh so hard that food came out his nose.
Garrison Keillor

Your siblings are the only people in the world who know what it’s like to have been brought up the way you were.
Betsy Cohen

You can kid the world. But not your sister.
