I am blessed. Why? Because I have a sister. And not just any sister, mind, but the very bestest sister in the whole world. She's not just my sister; she's my best friend—ever.

We're alike in many ways, my sister and I, but very different in others. Maybe that's why we get along so well. We complement each other rather than mirroring each other. and I know that she will always be there for me, no matter what.

There are a lot of great sister quotes on this page, but here's my favorite:

Having a sister is like having a best friend you can't get rid of. You know whatever you do, they'll still be there.

  • Maria and Marjorie Tallchief, prima ballerinas

... or this beautiful sister quote about angels:

Denzel Washington

Other sister quotes wax rhapsodic about the wonders of sisters:

For there is no friend like a sister in calm or stormy weather;
To cheer one on the tedious way,
to fetch one if one goes astray,
to lift one if one totters down,
to strengthen whilst one stands.

Christina Rossetti

And leave it to Charlie Brown for great sister quotes:
