The idea of sisters as best friends is a common theme in many notable quotations, since
sisters are often each other’s first friend and playmate. They might squabble over who gets to play with a favorite toy or argue about sharing clothes, but there's certainly something special about always having someone around to share a story, play a game, or watch a movie with.
And when life seems difficult, you can always count on your sister to have your back. She'll help smooth over an argument between you and your parents, wipe away your tears after a breakup, and give you a pep talk before an important job interview. As television personality Brad Goreski said, "My sister has been there for me through everything."
The dynamics of the sibling relationship often change over time, as sisters grow older and have spouses, children, and careers of their own. In many cases, the issues that kept sisters fighting as children seem less important as time passes. Cultural anthropologist Margaret Mead reflected on this change, citing a tendency of sisters to grow closer as they become adult women. "Sister is probably the most competitive relationship with the family, but once the sisters are grown, it becomes the strongest relationship," she said.
