    Love is the sister to Truth, but they differ in two ways. You must go to Truth to find her. She will never come looking for you. However, you are never to go looking for her sister Love. Love will find you in your own divine timing, when you are ready for her. So don't look, she will come. She always does.

    Younger sisters are almost different beings from elder ones, but thank God it is quite and unaffectedly without repining or envy that I see my elder sister gad about and visit, etc.—when I rest at home.

    We may like to regard all men as brothers and all women as sisters, in the spiritual sense, but the fact is many people are very, very undesirable and highly dangerous. Be kind but be wary.

    'In the near future, if not now, we will have to look at the world as our common home and all its inhabitants as equal citizens of the world. Therefore we will have to treat each other as fellow citizens, as brothers and sisters, who have the same aspirations as human persons and the same responsibilities of taking care of each other regardless of country, race or creed. This is how we are going to survive, not as nations with distinct interests although maintaining cultural identities, but as a species on the planet with a common hope of building a better human world.'
    (Philip Penaflor, 'Rethinking Hope and Peace')

    “She was no longer able to cope with all that her sister reminded her of. Shed been unable to forgive her for soaring alone over a boundary she herself could never bring herself to cross, unable to forgive that magnificent irresponsibility that had enabled Yeong-hye to shuck off social constraints and leave her behind, still a prisoner. And before Yeong-hye had broken those bars, shed never even known they were there.”

    “The sisters and brothers that you meet give you the materials which your character uses to build itself. It is said that some people are born great, others achieve it, some have it thrust upon them. In truth, the ways in which your character is built have to do with all three of those. Those around you, those you choose, and those who choose you.”
