La Soeurs de Poulet

June 21, 2011

A sister can be seen as someone who is both ourselves and very much not ourselves – a special kind of double.

– Toni Morrison, Nobel Prize and Pulitzer Prize-winning American novelist, editor, and professor

Sisters

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 Albert, Austrian writer, film-producer and film-director


In complete unison (notice they both have one leg up?)

Sisters annoy, interfere, criticize. Indulge in monumental sulks, in huffs, in snide remarks. Borrow. Break. Monopolize the bathroom. Are always underfoot. But if catastrophe should strike, sisters are there. Defending you against all comers.

Pam Brown, Australian Poet


Marching two-by-two

One of the best things about being an adult is the realization that you can share with your sister and still have plenty for yourself.

– Betsy Cohen
