Wisdom and goodness are twin-born, one heart must hold both sisters, never seen apart.
William Dean Howells
I do a lot of American plays. I've done a lot of Arthur Miller, Tennessee Williams and Neil Simon. I was in 'Sisters Rosensweig,' 'Six Degrees of Separation,' all of that stuff. So we're very familiar with America. I did 400 performances of 'Born Yesterday.' I did 700 performances of 'They're Playing Our Song.'
My dad was a surgeon, my mom a nurse, and they were always out working. I had five sisters and a brother. They didn't care what I got up to.
In 1900, the typical American was a boy, not yet a teenager, named John. He lived with his parents and his sisters, Mary and Helen, on a farm in New York or Pennsylvania.
Both of my sisters have been teachers and they used to say you get asked between 300 and 600 questions every day which you have to answer. That's exactly what directing is. And the vast majority of those questions are not very interesting really, but they need somebody to make a decision - a good one or a bad one - and they follow it.
I was raised by a lady that was crippled all her life but she did everything for me and she raised me. She washed our clothes, cooked our food, she did everything for us. I don't think I ever heard her complain a day in her life. She taught me responsibility towards my brother and sisters and the community.
God helping me, I will help my brothers and sisters in Christ, because they are my brothers and sisters.
Joseph Barber Lightfoot
I do like strong women in my movies. I have five sisters, so I've just grown up with that model.
I'm very proud of my sisters and everything they've accomplished and done. I'm very proud of where I came from.
When I think of sex symbols, I think of posters my two sisters had on their bedroom walls.
We're all a big hippie family so I got five sisters and a bunch of different mothers. Not really, but my sisters' mothers are all good friends with my mother. We're a big family, 25 people.
When I was at home, I felt loved and safe. My sisters were always a safe haven for me. I knew they would always play with me and make me feel like I was one of them.
My mom did costumes for the Pointer Sisters.
I need a SUV, for me and my four sisters. So, I've narrowed it down to four, kind of expensive, cars.
One of the pleasures of the original 'Grimm's Fairy Tales' is how incredibly ghastly they are. The ugly sisters have their eyes pecked out by crows.
I've got two sisters and they're both married and they're both much more settled into the way things are.
I have two sisters and a mother, obviously, so I grew up with a household of girls. Maybe I have a greater respect for women because of it.
No one could have nicer sisters. No sibling problems there.
As sisters in Zion, we can be obstacles to the adversary's conspiracy against families and virtue.
Sheri L. Dew
For many years, our Messianic Jewish brothers and sisters have paid a great price. Other Jews have rejected them, and the Christian church would require they walk away from their traditions to fit into the Gentile culture. We must face these past wrongs.
I did grow up in Kenosha, Wisconsin, around a lot of my mom's family. I had a lot of cousins and aunts and uncles around me, and my sisters and my brother. Probably the most formative part of it was that we grew up on the edge of a forest. It wasn't a big forest, but it was enough. When you're a kid, it feels gigantic.
I have three older sisters, so we were a reasonably large family and, in general, a happy one.
Alexander McCall Smith
I've got two older sisters who I'm very close to. And my son's grown up with a big sense of family around him.
I do have height envy. I'm 5'1 and my sisters are giants so I do have height envy.
'A League of Their Own' had some special meaning for me, I guess - it's about women joining together and being empowered, but also about sisters sticking together even when there's drama and struggles. I'm really close to my two sisters and my brother, so I liked that about it.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
