    Didn’t spill a drop. The shakes are gone just because of a piece of music. Until they played that piece, I, I forgot how I got into this thing. Keep on playin’ it. I don’t think I’ll ever forget again.
    Jules Furthman (1888–1960)

    Whether changes in the sibling relationship during adolescence create long-term rifts that spill over into adulthood depends upon the ability of brothers and sisters to constantly redefine their connection. Siblings either learn to accept one another as independent individuals with their own sets of values and behaviors or cling to the shadow of the brother and sister they once knew.
    Jane Mersky Leder (20th century)
