Not Having Sister Quotes

Margaret, the other sister, was a good-humored, well-disposed girl; but as she had already imbibed a good deal of Mariannes romance, without having much of her sense, she did not, at thirteen, bid fair to equal her sisters at a more advanced period of life.
— Jane Austen —

One of the many unintended consequences of the Anthropocene has been the pruning of our own family tree. Having cut down our sister species-the Neanderthals and the Denisovans-many generations ago, we're now working on our first and second cousins. By the time we're done, it's quite possible that there will be among the great apes not a single representative left, except, that is, for us.

— Elizabeth Kolbert

Having a sister or a friend is like sitting at night in a lighted house. Those outside can watch you if they want, but you need not see them. You simply say, "Here are the perimeters of our attention. If you prowl around under the windows till the crickets go silent, we will pull the shades. If you wish us to suffer your envious curiosity, you must permit us not to notice it." Anyone with one solid human bond is that smug, and it is the smugness as much as the comfort and safety that lonely people covet and admire.

— Marilynne Robinson

In point of fact, he was not afraid to die, not anymore. He now understood with a faith that he had never before possessed that he would see those he had lost when he died, that everything would be made whole, that he would talk to Boukman, and his mother and father and sister, again. It was true that there was no need on earth that could not be slaked and satisfied. When you are thirsty there is water. When you are hungry there is food. It is impossible to need a thing without that thing being available for the having. A man may want a green horse that flies, but he canot need one, for there is no such thing.
At this precise moment, Toussaint felt that he needed Boukman, that he could not bear it if he never saw him again, and he knew, because this need existed, that it would be met.

— Nick Lake
