Ann Brashares
“Maybe the truth is, there's a little bit of loser in all of us. Being happy isn't having everything in your life be perfect. Maybe it's about stringing together all the little things.”
Ann Brashares, The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants

Madeleine Albright
“There is a special place in hell for women who don't help other women."

(Keynote speech at Celebrating Inspiration luncheon with the WNBA's All-Decade Team, 2006)”
Madeleine Albright

“Sophia Mercer," Elodie intoned, "we have come to induct you into our sisterhood. Say the five words to begin the ritual."

Anna gave an exasperated sigh. "No, the five words are 'I accept you offer, sisters.”
Rachel Hawkins, Hex Hall

C. JoyBell C.
“We are all equal in the fact that we are all different. We are all the same in the fact that we will never be the same. We are united by the reality that all colours and all cultures are distinct & individual. We are harmonious in the reality that we are all held to this earth by the same gravity. We don't share blood, but we share the air that keeps us alive. I will not blind myself and say that my black brother is not different from me. I will not blind myself and say that my brown sister is not different from me. But my black brother is he as much as I am me. But my brown sister is she as much as I am me.”
C. JoyBell C.

Sarah Addison Allen
“We're connected, as women. It's like a spiderweb. If one part of that web vibrates, if there's trouble, we all know it, but most of the time we're just too scared, or selfish, or insecure to help. But if we don't help each other, who will?”
Sarah Addison Allen, The Peach Keeper

William Shakespeare
“So we grew together like to a double cherry, seeming parted, but yet an union in partition, two lovely berries molded on one stem.”
William Shakespeare, A Midsummer Night's Dream

Jodi Picoult
“Once upon a time there were two sisters. One of them was really, really strong, and one of them wasn't.' You looked at me. 'Your turn.'

I rolled my eyes. 'The strong sister went outside into the rain and realized the reason she was strong was because she was made out of iron, but it was raining and she rusted. The end.'

No, because the sister who wasn't strong went outside into the rain when it was raining, and hugged her really tight until the sun came out again.”
Jodi Picoult, Handle with Care

Mike  Norton
“The bittersweet about truth is that nothing could be more hurtful, yet nothing could be more helpful.”

Ann Brashares
“Riley was quiet for a minute. She gathered her blanket all around her. "Paul always loved you, Alice. He knows I know that. I know he loves me, too. But it's different."

Alice opened her mouth, but nothing came out at first. "He loved me once. But I think that part is over," she said slowly.

"No, it's not. It hasn't even begun." Riley took Alice's bare foot in her hand and squeezed it. "I told him, though, that he better be good to you. When you came along, I said I'd share you, but I told him to remember that you're my sister. I loved you first."

Ann Brashares, The Last Summer

Phyllis Reynolds Naylor, All But Alice

Barbara Kingsolver
“Hallie and I... were all there was. The image in the mirror that proves you are still here. We had exactly one sister apiece. We grew up knowing the simple arithmetic of scarcity: A sister is more precious than an eye.”
Barbara Kingsolver

Ann Brashares
“They were absolutely lovely, and in their presence, so was she.”
Ann Brashares


Only when you have walked with me through the valley of hardship...
When you have fought beside me against an evil foe...
When you have cried with me through a painful heartache...
When you have laughed with me at life joyous moments...
When you have held my hand in silent sorrow at my loss...
When you have trusted me in spite of your doubts,,,
When you have believed in me when I lacked confidence to believe in my self...
When you have defended my honor against lying tongues...
When you have prayed for me when I was temped to go wrong...
When you have stood with me as others walked away...
Then and only then can you call me friend. For then you truly know ME.
Then you will have paid the price of sisterhood/brotherhood.
Then you will have forged a bond that will transcend time and live beyond life.
Then you will truly be called a FRIEND who sticks closer than a brother...

Shadowstorm Norwicca
“Now with her eyes closed and fist clenched at her side. She was as off balanced as he was. Lilith took a deep breath and opened her eyes. She looked at Ian and did what took every ounce of will power she had; she walked away and out the doors. Ian watched as Lilith left the study and was shocked. He wanted her and she walked away from him. Then anger stormed his emotions and now he was royally pissed off. He was getting fucking tired of the cold and hot treatment she was giving him. Why the hell was she running?”
Shadowstorm Norwicca, Forbidden Fruit

Misa Rush
“With every beat of my heart, I believe she thought keeping her secret was in everyone's best interest. She thought the secret would be buried with her, never to be revealed. She thought wrong.”
Misa Rush, Family Pieces

N. Maria Kwami
“We, who had no designated safe havens where we could carry our vomit for other people to clean up for us — who were too urgently needed to afford to pause for occasional maintenance, too dignified to succumb to emotional fatigue — not for us the overpaid charlatans disguised as therapists, who would only poke at our scabs and suck our money. No. We, the unbreakable ones, we ourselves were all the therapy that we needed.”
N. Maria Kwami, Secrets of the Bending Grove

C. JoyBell C.
“I believe in women uplifting other women. The only thing that makes our gender weaker, is the fact that we are the gender less likely to stand up for the other. We are the gender more likely to try and make another look bad, and when one of us is already bad, instead of being kind, we pound them into the ditches. And that's what makes us weak, nothing else. If we can change this, we can change the whole structure of our being female, I truly believe this. Personally, I grew up admiring other women and wanting to be friends with them, but unfortunately, I learned the hard way that they were the ones who would hurt me. Women hurt other women all too often, and that's a fact. I'd like to see not just us not hurting one another; but us actually making a conscious effort to be happy for another when she is happy, to hope the best for another when she has better, and to lift another up when she is down. We know that so many of us are harsh, cold and selfish, and we try to protect ourselves from one another, that's the reality. But it's also a reality that what is real can change. So that means we can change it.”
C. JoyBell C.

“Above everything else, beyond the long hardships, one out- come is the most invaluable. The sisterhoods. The lifelong friends and bonds that will never lessen. Years can go by, and I will pick up with each of those sisters as if a single day hasn’t passed. Only we can truly understand one another; not even our husbands can fully grasp what we’ve been through with each other and how ironclad those bonds are.”
Angela Ricketts, No Man's War: Irreverent Confessions of an Infantry Wife

“Hasten Little Maiden

stop and listen
for pearls of wisdom
stop and listen
as the river glistens...”

“Little Maiden Encounters Fear

Deepest regions walked she there
little maiden sweet and fair
ventured far from the path
never a whisper
never a laugh...”
Muse, Enigmatic Evolution

“Depths of Friendship

...under fathoms deep
of dark and bitter cold
an eerie oscillation
reverberated brash and bold...”
Muse, Enigmatic Evolution
