The Greatest Inspirational
Sister Quotes

This page is a collection of Inspiring Sister Quotes.

I grew up with a younger sister and it took me many years to realize how special she was. At first, I saw her as an annoyance, inconvenience, and a rival for attention.

I often wished and prayed she would leave, but as the years grew I gradually came to accept the inevitable- she wasn't going anywhere. :)

Over the years our relationship grew and changed and gradually we reached a point of friendship.

Now it's years later and my sister is a mom. I marvel at the wonderful woman she has become and the great mother she is to her children.

The sister quotes below are great for everyone with a sister. Enjoy this page of Sister Quotes as they encourage you to appreciate your sister.

Someone who thinks you know the answers to almost everything.
-Pam Brown

But most are like my sister and me...

ever so slightly less best.

expressions of shocked surprise and incredulity and disbelief.
Sniffs and snorts and gasps and sighs-
that can undermine any tale you're telling.
-Pam Brown



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



She is your mirror, shining back at you with a world of possibilities.
She is your witness, who sees you at your worst and best,
and loves you anyway.
She is your partner in crime, your midnight companion,
someone who knows when you are smiling, even in the dark.
She is your teacher, your defense attorney,
your personal press agent, even your shrink.
Some days, she's the reason you wish you were an only child.
-Barbara Alpert

the people who teach us about fairness
and cooperation and kindness and caring,
quite often the hard way.

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



Sisters annoy, interfere, criticize.
Indulge in monumental sulks, in huffs, in snide remarks.

But if catastrophe should strike, sisters are there.
Defending you against all comers.
-Pam Brown

To the outside world we all grow old.
But not to brothers and sisters.

We live outside the touch of time.

We acquire friends and we make enemies,
but our sisters come with the territory.

But to each other, we are still in junior school.

Our brothers and sisters are there with us
from the dawn of our personal stories to the inevitable dusk.

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
