Famous quotes containing the words brother and, sister and/or brother:

    Would I if I could by pushing a button would I kill five
    thousand Chinamen if I could save my brother from
    anything. Well I was very fond of my brother and I
    could completely imagine his suffering and I replied
    that five thousand Chinamen was something I could not
    imagine and so it was not interesting. One has to
    remember that about imagination, that is when the
    world gets dull when everybody does not know what
    they can or what they cannot really imagine.
    Gertrude Stein (1874–1946)

    For she has made me the laily worm
    That lies at the fit o’ the tree,
    An’ my sister Masery she’s made
    The machrel of the sea.
    —Unknown. The Laily Worm and the Machrel of the Sea (l. 5–8)

    A brother may not be a friend, but a friend will always be a brother.
    Samuel Richardson (1689–1761)
