3. "There is so much of gratitude or vanity in almost every attachment, that it is not safe to leave any to itself. We can all BEGIN freely--a slight preference is natural enough; but there are very few of us who have heart enough to be really in love without encouragement.

4. "Mr. Bingley was good-looking and gentlemanlike; he had a pleasant countenance, and easy, unaffected manners. His sisters were fine women, with an air of decided fashion. His brother-in-law, Mr. Hurst, merely looked the gentleman; but his friend Mr. Darcy soon drew the attention of the room by his fine, tall person, handsome features, noble mien, and the report which was in general circulation within five minutes after his entrance, of his having ten thousand a year. The gentlemen pronounced him to be a fine figure of a man, the ladies declared he was much handsomer than Mr. Bingley, and he was looked at with great admiration for about half the evening, till his manners gave a disgust which turned the tide of his popularity; for he was discovered to be proud; to be above his company, and above being pleased; and not all his large estate in Derbyshire could then save him from having a most forbidding, disagreeable countenance, and being unworthy to be compared with his friend."
Author: Jane Austen
5. "I thought back to that precious moment ... when he'd first pulled me into his arms. How strong I'd felt. That same feeling of strength had washed over me afresh when Twila and the other Splendora sisters prayed with me. And now, as I watched my parents embrace, I realized the truth: there really is strength in numbers. No matter what I faced in this life, I could handle it with the people I loved surrounding me."
Author: Janice Thompson
6. "If I could trade places with any of my sisters for a day, it would be Kim. I want to see what it's like...The only time she sleeps is on the airplane. It's just crazy. I feel bad for her, but I still want to know what it's like."
Author: Kendall Jenner

Think positive and bring forth positive vibes for the harmony of the universal collective. So that as one we can all share our individuality without shame as brothers and sisters should."
Author: Kenneth G. Ortiz

9. "Steerpike was, of course, alive with ideas and projects. These two half-witted women were a gift. That they should be the sisters of Lord Sepulchrave was of tremendous strategic value. They would prove an advance on the Prunesquallors, if not intellectually at any rate socially, and that at the moment was what mattered. And in any case, the lower the mentality of his employers the more scope for his own projects."
Author: Mervyn Peake

And to you, as well."[awkward pause][even more awkward pause]"I hope your mother isn't giving you any trouble."Oh, Father, I love it when you play this game."She told me if I clean all the ashes out of the grate, then I'll be able to help my sisters get ready for the ball.""It's Christmas, Dashiell. Can't you give that attitude a rest?""Merry Christmas, Dad. And thanks for the presents.""What presents?""I'm sorry—those were all from Mom, weren't they?""Dashiell …""I gotta go. The gingerbread men are on"
Author: Rachel Cohn
