Pam Brown
The first seven years of my life, me, my mom and dad and my four older siblings lived in a suburb of Stockholm, and my mom was very active with directing theater. So I basically grew up at the theater on the floors of the shows, so I was really surrounded with music at a young age.
Erik Hassle
He would read up on parenting, if he thought it would help, but his errors always seemed too basic for the manuals. “Always tell your kids they have siblings…” He couldn’t imagine any child-raising guru taking the trouble to write that down. Maybe there was a gap in the market.
Nick Hornby
Compared with the rest of the Royal Family, Charles is a thoroughly Renaissance man, moved by beauty, music, and art in a way that largely passes his parents, his siblings, and his sons by.
Penny Junor
Family’s the one thing you can’t change. You can cover yourself with tattoos. You can get a grapefruit-sized ring going through your earlobe. You can change your name. You can move to a different continent. But you cannot change who your parents were, and who your siblings are, and who your children are.
Jonathan Franzen
When you’re your parents’ one shot at a genetic legacy, you may get to attend all the best schools, wear all the best clothes and eat all the best foods – at least relative to children in multiple-sibling households. But you also wind up with an overweening sense of your own importance.
Jeffrey Kluger
Some of the best times I’ve spent in Colorado have been in the backcountry with my mom and siblings, and more recently, with my own kids. That is why I’m concerned to see today’s kids spending more time browsing the Internet than exploring nature.

Britt Robertson
Ignore reality, there’s nothing you can do about it.
Natalie Imbruglia
I tend to have a long con when it comes to romance, in part because I like the build-up as much as the payoff, and in part because I think there are a wealth of relationships out there (friend, sibling, rival, etc.), and straight-up romance interests me less than tension.
V. E. Schwab
It snowed last year too: I made a snowman and my brother knocked it down and I knocked my brother down and then we had tea.

Blake Lively
It was only when I started handling Treasury Operations that I realised all of a sudden just how much wealth we have. That is a huge responsibility, so I decided to get on with it and learn how to manage it, because I am a single child and have no siblings to share the responsibility with.
Roshni Nadar
My parents wanted me and my siblings to practice some sports outside school. And since we lived next to a tennis club, we decided to play tennis. I didn’t have an idol, so to speak, but I always enjoyed watching Pete Sampras and Alex Corretja.

Nikki Haley
Peer attachments are not the problem themselves. It’s when they compete with adult attachments that the problems emerge. It’s just like when siblings get attached to each other. If they start revolving around each other, then the parents can’t do anything with them because it’s a competing attachment.
Gordon Neufeld
When you’re working with somebody else in that kind of way, you always have to have these guidelines to what you’re doing – especially when you’re working with your sibling. But when you’re working by yourself you’re free to do whatever you like.
Eleanor Friedberger
Family: the most important thing of all. My siblings may drive me crazy at times but they are my blood. They’re all I’ve known. My family is me. They are my life. Without them I walk the planet alone. Forbidden, Tabitha Suzuma
Tabitha Suzuma

Winnie Harlow
All my siblings became artists. One’s a novelist, my brother is a painter, my sister was a costume designer.
Caio Fonseca
Desire is both imitative (we like what others like) and competitive (we want to take away from others what they have). As children, we wanted to monopolize the attention of a parent, to draw it away from other siblings. This sense of rivalry… makes people compete for the attention.
Robert Greene
When I was a kid, I would do Andrew Dice Clay jokes for my siblings. Like, we’d be on vacation, and I’d just recite Andrew Dice Clay jokes. They seemed to think that was pretty funny. Then it evolved into ‘Wayne’s World.’
Nick Kroll
Donald, following the lead of my grandfather and with the complicity, silence and inaction of his siblings, destroyed my father. I can’t let him destroy my country.
Mary L. Trump
I was born in Sinaloa, Mexico, along with two of my siblings. The rest were born here in the United States. I didn’t know we were illegal until I was in the 8th grade. We would call other kids wetbacks, but we were the real wetbacks!
Felipe Esparza
An ordinary life used to look something like this: born into a growing family, you help rear your siblings, have the first of your own half-dozen or even dozen children soon after you’re grown, and die before your youngest has left home.
Jill Lepore
I have a sister, in particular, who’s 13 years older than me. So growing up and watching her – watching her go to work, especially – was hugely influential to me. As the youngest, with a sibling that’s a decade older, I had certain things that I would go to her about instead of my mother.
Linda Cardellini
It’s hard to be responsible, adult and sensible all the time. How good it is to have a sister whose heart is as young as your own.

Nathan Chen
I just think it’s so nice that naturally all my siblings and my father and I have our own taste in music.
Brandi Cyrus
I’m not very active on social media. I’m not on Facebook or Twitter or Instagram, or anything like that. But I think it’s wonderful that they’re out there. They’re fantastic. I have a lot of siblings and friends that use it, and it’s great for them. It’s such a connected world.
Alexander Skarsgard
I have three wonderful siblings, and we all pitched in equally to help our mother.
Joan Allen

Steven Lopez

My mom says I’m completely perfect
Just the way I am.
My mom says I’m a super-special wonderful terrific little guy.
My mom just had another baby.
Judith Viorst
I grew up as an only child, so inherently, most of my life was centered around me. My parents taught me to play well with others and to share my toys, but I was still an only child who didn’t have to share my parent’s attention with siblings. As great as my childhood was, I always wanted brothers and sisters.
Coy Bowles
My parents are actors, and I’m the oldest of my siblings – I have three younger sisters and a brother who’s my best friend. We’re a close-knit, complicated family, but we spend a lot of time together, even though we live in different houses. We’re a rambunctious gang!
Maya Hawke
When I was growing up, my mother was always a friend to my siblings and me (in addition to being all the other things a mom is), and I was always grateful for that because I knew she was someone I could talk to and joke with, and argue with and that nothing would ever harm that friendship.
Marlo Thomas
I’m the oldest of four, I have three siblings, and I think I kind of grew up aggravating and picking at them.

When you live in a small house with five younger siblings, it’s actually far more sensible- and much quicker- to cry alone.
Caitlin Moran
So it – we have one enduring, uh, idea that will always live on with the Smothers Brothers, that ‘Mom always liked you best.’ We’re the universal, uh, feeling that every child, every sibling has had somewhere along the line. Or, ‘Who did she like best?’ And that became kind of a little mantra.
Tom Smothers
There is no reason why India and Pakistan are fighting. Similarly, there is no reason when two siblings fight.

Tim Allen
I am an only child and home-schooled, so I have no siblings or classmates.
Jonathan Krohn
I’m fascinated by twins. It’s such an interesting thing. I’m an only child, so I don’t have a sibling. But, if you think about the bond that siblings have, that intensifies so much when you think about being in the womb together.
Sarah Michelle Gellar
I was the first of my siblings born here in the United States.
Wayne Messam
In a way, it is easier to be the younger sibling, as the older one has to pave the way.
Motsi Mabuse
I’m pretty sure I was about the only kid in school who knew who Jimi Hendrix even was. Through my older siblings, I was getting turned on to all the great music that was happening at the time, and I really loved Hendrix.
Joe Satriani
I’d like to start off by saying that every experience no matter what it is, good or bad, you’ll learn from it. That’s just life. But something I’ve done I’ve regretted is probably picking on my siblings growing up, because you appreciate them so much more as you grow older.
Olivia Culpo
My siblings and I had a loving but very chaotic and muddled childhood, and as a result we have sought out lives that are consistent and stable, domestic and happy.
Sophie Dahl
If you don’t understand how a woman could both love her sister dearly and want to wring her neck at the same time, then you were probably an only child.
Linda Sunshine
The words secret and sacred are siblings.
Mary Ruefle
I grew up in a small town in Alabama, and there wasn’t much in the way of entertainment, so like our older siblings before us, we drove our pickup trucks out into the hayfield and lit a bonfire.
Abbi Glines
Sisters don’t need words. They have perfected a language of snarls and smiles and frowns and winks – expressions of shocked surprise and incredulity and disbelief. Sniffs and snorts and gasps and sighs – that can undermine any tale you’re telling.
Pam Brown
I always wanted a sibling.
Annie Murphy
I can confidently say that I have a great relationship with my siblings, though I know not everybody does. I would hope that my children have a very similar relationship with each other.

At about the age of ten, my friends and I discovered the joys of sitting in graveyards drinking merrydown cider and kissing and stealing our elder siblings’ records.
Beth Orton
My family were very poor. I am one of nine siblings: two girls and seven boys. Only my brother and I play in Europe, and then three more work in Europe, and another plays in Tunisia. This family is a footballing family, but our lives have not always been good.
Yaya Toure
My family is mostly a chosen one. I’ve managed to invite some really amazing people into my life and they become family. Brothers, sisters, siblings, mentors, role models. And I like to live that way, where your family bleeds out into the larger community.
Adrian Grenier
I have a sister that I’m very close with, and that relationship is probably the most intense relationship of my life to date, probably of my life, period. I think that when you’re close with a sibling, especially a sister, it’s a relationship unlike any other.
Zoe Kazan
From when I was born, my dad would dance with me in his arms, and I would watch my siblings dancing around in the living room. I just grew up with that. That was just my life.

My parents have not insisted that we go to college, but she wanted us to learn. Teacher, librarian, secretary, nurse. All my siblings were employed. But I wanted to be the boss, an independent contractor.
Bette Midler
A sibling is a friend for life, but they are a friend for life that you are forced to have. And like anything that you are forced to do, occasionally people will drive you crazy.

Kola Boof
Siblings that say they never fight are most definitely hiding something

Abby Huntsman
I grew up with a menagerie of dogs, cats, gerbils – not to mention three younger siblings.
K. A. Applegate
I always wanted siblings.
Billie Lourd
Food was always a big part of my life. My grandfather was one of 14 kids, and his parents had a pasta factory, so as a kid, he and his siblings would sell pasta door to door. After he became a movie producer, he opened up De Laurentiis Food Stores – one in Los Angeles and one in New York.
Giada De Laurentiis
I was the youngest of the six kids, and to make my older siblings laugh, that was very important. I did a great impression of our dad that made them all laugh, so that gave me a lot of power within the family.
Jim Gaffigan
In some ways, siblings, and especially sisters, are more influential in your childhood than your parents.

Annie Murphy
The movie where me and Leslie Jones play siblings will manifest at some point in time.
Bob the Drag Queen
The special thing about ‘Star Wars’ is you can come to it and become a fan at any age. It’s such an interesting franchise. I wasn’t lucky enough to see it as a young kid, and I didn’t have any older siblings that loved it and made me want to watch it, too.
Tiya Sircar
My father was the orphaned son of immigrants to the United States from Ireland. My father never knew his parents. His mother died – we’re not sure – either at or shortly after his birth, and he and all of his siblings were placed in orphanages in the Boston area.

Every child needs to have for itself not only its loving parents and siblings and friends of its own age, but a grown-up friend.

Sibling rivalry was, and still is to this day, rampant in my family. We were all competing for my parents’ divided attention.
Janine di Giovanni
The first thing we did was change all the clocks so that her siblings thought it was bedtime, then put them to bed ignoring their plaintive protests that they were not tired. They wept themselves to sleep soon enough.
Meg Cabot
My siblings and I were raised to be very hardworking and to find something that we’re passionate in, and to be able to turn that into work – I’m lucky to be able to say that I’ve done that.
Katherine Schwarzenegger
I was someone’s younger sibling and I finally have my own voice and my own spotlight.
Valentin Chmerkovskiy
With a diplomat father, for whom foreign postings were a fact of life, my siblings and I were expected to attend boarding schools in Britain.
Arabella Weir

Sinead Burke
I didn’t know music either, but I became a composer. Acting too is like that. It’s like cooking for your siblings when your mother is away. You have a responsibility and you try to do a good job.
Vijay Antony
When I was growing up, I knew a lot about football because I saw some of my grown-up siblings watching football on TV and they supported Manchester United.
Odion Ighalo
I do have siblings, but I don’t have any brothers.
Sonequa Martin-Green
A lot of the women that I treat will tell me that when they talk to their siblings or mothers they very often have similar challenges. One could make the case that it’s nurture, not nature because these twins were brought up together, but you can’t rule out the genetic argument.
Laura Berman
Now, thanks to weightlifting, our life in Zamboanga changed. I was able to buy land for my sibling and for my gym. I was able to help my family and kids who grew up without a home.
Hidilyn Diaz
I would like more sisters, that the taking out of one, might not leave such stillness.
Emily Dickinson
I did not even go to kindergarten; I just started first grade when I was five and started reading right away. I don’t know how it all worked, but I had a lot of adults and older siblings around me. So, I guess I was probably introduced to what one would be introduced to at that time in kindergarten.
Joan Ganz Cooney
Sister is probably the most competitive relationship within the family, but once the sisters are grown, it becomes the strongest relationship.
Margaret Mead
African-Americans assume I’m named after the notorious Soledad prison or Mount Soledad in California. Latinos want to know if I’m lonely. That doesn’t fit, because I grew up with five siblings, and I have four kids of my own, so I’m not lonely at all, though I do often seek solitude, the actual meaning of my name.
Soledad O’Brien
I know friends who have this sort of incredibly intimate relationship with their sibling. And I don’t get it: it wasn’t like that in my family. In some ways, I’m envious, because they have someone that’s so completely in their corner. And at the same time, I imagine it may at times feel like it’s stunting.
Michaela Watkins
Because of the earlier loss of the two elder siblings, my brother and I lived a very pampered and protected life. Nursemaids kept constant watch. With my parents busy at dinner parties and social events, we only met them as if for a daily royal audience.
Charles K. Kao
There are parents, siblings, teachers and friends, but counting on them to motivate you isn’t fair. They’ve all got their own lives, and while the may be able to help you out, if you can motivate yourself, then you’re golden.
Shannon Miller
My siblings are so talented. My sister’s a producer, and my brothers and I all write.
Jurnee Smollett-Bell
Mum didn’t have shoes. She was the eldest of 10 kids, and some nights they went without food. That’s why, from a young age, I wanted to work hard and change that cycle, to provide not only for my parents but my siblings, too.
Israel Folau
Blessed is the servant who loves his brother as much when he is sick and useless as when he is well and an be of service to him. And blessed is he who loves his brother as well when he is afar off as when he is by his side, and who would say nothing behind his back he might not, in love, say before his face.
Francis of Assisi
I had this odd sibling rivalry with America.
Patti Davis
Big sisters are the crab grass in the lawn of life.
Charles M. Schulz
It’s tougher to work with Amaal, as the brother equation comes in between. We fight like any other siblings and have creative differences. I work harder when I am singing for him, as he is a taskmaster.
Armaan Malik
When my family got Internet installed at my house, me and my siblings went crazy and would take turns browsing. I’m homeschooled, too, so I would be on the computer every day. It was so exciting to finally get Internet at my house.
Rich Brian

My parents have raised me and my three siblings to be aware of the privilege we have been afforded and the responsibility it brings.
Uzodinma Iweala

Sometimes it’s heartbreaking to see your siblings as the people they’ve become. Maybe that’s why we all stay away from each other as a matter of course.
Jonathan Tropper
Be nice to your siblings. They are your link to the past and the people most likely to stick with you in the future.
Mary Schmich
It seems to me that we have to draw the line in sibling rivalry whenever rivalry goes out of bounds into destructive behavior of aphysical or verbal kind. The principle needs to be this: Whatever the reasons for your feelings you will have to find civilized solutions.
Selma Fraiberg
Eventually we will learn that the loss of indivisible love is another of our necessary losses, that loving extends beyond the mother-child pair, that most of the love we receive in this world is love we will have to share–and that sharing begins at home, with our sibling rivals.
Judith Viorst
Sibling relationships figure in a lot of my books. You don’t often see relationships between adult siblings explored in fiction.
Dara Horn
I have seven brothers and two sisters, so there was always a little friendly competition in the house. I don’t think that’s anything unusual with that many siblings.
Tony Rock
I’m really proud to be able to share the stage, not just with my siblings, but with incredible artists, probably the best in the industry.
Valentin Chmerkovskiy
I have seven step-siblings from my mother’s second and third marriages. My degree of closeness to my step-siblings varies among the seven but I have a great sense of loyalty to all of them, especially the four from my childhood. If those people needed my help I would be there for them.
Ann Patchett
I was the sibling that kind of kept it all on a level when life at home got tough. I did it through comedy, sarcasm and distraction. All families are complicated, but my home life was glaringly uncomfortable much of the time, and it was me that took the onus.
Johnny Galecki
I am the youngest of four children – three boys and one girl. I don’t think becoming an actor had anything to do with seeking attention, though. My relationship with my siblings when I was growing up was close and playful.
David Harewood
My father and his eight siblings grew up in the kind of poverty that Americans don’t like to talk about unless a natural disaster like Hurricane Katrina strikes, and then the conversation only lasts as long as the news cycle. His family squatted in shacks. The children scavenged for food.
Karin Slaughter
Sweet is the voice of a sister in the season of sorrow.
Benjamin Disraeli
Relations between parents and children and siblings and mates. This is not external. We can’t separate them.
Dallas Willard
God bless you if you have one child, but I don’t think anybody should have just one child. Everybody needs a sibling. I have siblings, and I have so many amazing, precious memories with my siblings. I don’t know what I would do if I had been an only child.
Sherri Shepherd
I believe in soulmates, yes, but I believe you also have to work at love. I happen to believe your soulmate doesn’t have to be your partner – your soulmate could be your best friend, your sibling, it doesn’t have to be the person you marry.
Cheryl Cole
I think my siblings sometimes have to defend me within their social circles – they are both barristers.
Jenny Eclair
No one in my family was creative. One of my sisters went to a university, and pretty much, most of my siblings live a basic and dull lifestyle.
Kevin Abstract
The example set by my grandparents and parents – that of giving one’s time, talent, voice and resources, either from one’s own home or from the highest office in the land – had a profound effect on me and my siblings.
Neil Bush
Of all the statistics in health, death is the easiest, because you can go out and ask people, “Hey, have you had any children who died, did your siblings have any children who died?” People don’t forget that.
Bill Gates
My mother raised me herself, along with my six younger siblings, in Cleveland, and life wasn’t easy even in the best of times. At age 42, she died, and it fell on me, then aged 22 and working minimum wage, to take care of all of us. At the time, I was newly married with a baby son. And I was deeply afraid for our future.
Nina Turner

Marissa Jaret Winokur
There is no substitute for the comfort supplied by the utterly taken-for-granted relationship.
Iris Murdoch
I decided to move out of the apartment I was sharing with my best friend before graduation and move back home. My parents had recently separated, and I wanted to move back home with my mom and my siblings.

Spending most of my time on chess there is not much else I can be much good at but I enjoy spending time with my wife, parents, siblings and friends, listening to music, some sports, the Web and well… the usual stuff.
Anish Giri
Comparing between siblings is something I don’t like and don’t do at all. I don’t believe in comparisons. We all have our own journeys and we enjoy each other’s success as much as ours.
Sonu Kakkar
My father earned his citizenship by serving in the Army during World War II. He devoted his life to caring for our nations veterans at a VA hospital in Buffalo, New York. That desire to serve fellow Americans propelled my four siblings into medical careers, too.
Tom Perez
Among directing teams, you find a high percentage of brothers. You need the ability to compromise. With siblings, you’ve grown up with a pattern that, yeah, every once in a while you have to give in for the greater good, for the family collective.
Anthony Russo
If you want to do really important things in life and big things in life, you can’t do anything by yourself. And your best teams are your friends and your siblings.
Deepak Chopra
I don’t even call them fans. I don’t like that. They’re literally just a part of my life; they’re a part of my family. I don’t think of them as on a lower level than me. I don’t think I’m anything but equal to all of them. So yeah, they’re basically all of my siblings.
Billie Eilish
I was an only child. And it’s very much my temperament. I remember playing with a piece of string in my room for hours. I had never thought about what it would be like to have siblings.
Leigh Newman
But now I’m wondering if I need it anymore, if we ever really need these words, “Dauntless,” “Erudite,” “Divergent,” “Allegiant,” or if we can just be friends or lovers or siblings, defined instead by the choices we make and the love and loyalty that binds us.
Veronica Roth
Screw you, John.” “Sorry, Sylvie. Can’t—they frown on that kind of thing between step-siblings.
Rosemary Clement-Moore
I had a great relationship with my parents, but there’s something about hanging out with your older sibling that just has a whole new level of cool for a kid.
Dan Schneider
I guess because twins have this mystique, and triplets – I think the normal sibling connection potentially can be very powerful, and there’s this idea that it’s even more powerful. It really is, not just someone like me, but another version of me.
Curtis Sittenfeld
Where would you be without friends? The people to pick you up when you need lifting? We come from homes far from perfect, so you end up almost parent and sibling to your friends – your own chosen family. There’s nothing like a really loyal, dependable, good friend. Nothing.
Jennifer Aniston
When you get a little bit older, you’re always trying to do something different from your siblings.
Jerome Boateng
I live a very privileged life, obviously. I’m an accomplished actor, I have a very solid normal family, tons of siblings, and a mother that loves me.
Chloe Grace Moretz
More than Santa Claus, your sister knows when you’ve been bad and good.
Linda Sunshine
The advantage of growing up with siblings is that you become very good at fractions.
Robert Breault
We all have competitive relationships with our siblings.
John Benjamin Hickey
I have an enormous family because I’m from Montreal and my family’s Catholic, so my dad has eight siblings and they all have kids and we all grew up in the same property on weekends and summers.
Jessica Pare
The family is one of nature’s masterpieces.
George Santayana
If his/her siblings and parents are not treated and he/she is strong enough to continue the recovery, a sibling will take up the “druggie” role.
Virgil Miller Newton
I’m a good uncle, but I’m not a great caretaker. I feel oftentimes pretty selfish within the relationships I have with my siblings and, historically, with what I give back versus what I’ve taken over the years.
Nick Kroll
Sisterly love is, of all sentiments, the most abstract. Nature does not grant it any functions.
Ugo Betti
Your True Nature Is Love. There’s Nothing You Can Do About It.
Byron Katie
Doing what we can to repair the world was instilled in me from an early age. I will never forget my siblings and me knitting squares for blankets to be sent to the troops during World War II. This was an inspiration from my mother.
Charles Bronfman
Sometimes we didn’t eat, we could not buy food for six siblings… That’s how it was.
Hidilyn Diaz
Sisterhood is powerful.
Robin Morgan
If you have, especially with siblings, something like the competition for mom’s affection, it just never goes away.
Jonathan Krisel
Passion and platonic friendliness, often contrary siblings, frequently wear similar faces to hide the great distance between them.
Darin Strauss
Oh, Raima and I gel very well on screen. Our natural sibling camaraderie is evident once the cameras started rolling.
Riya Sen
If you’re the person living closest to the parent who’s going to need help, and you take on the whole role of primary caregiver, you can be pretty sure your sibling who lives farthest away is going to call you and say, ‘You don’t know what you’re doing.’ Because they’re not on the spot, and they probably feel guilty.
Gail Sheehy
Sometimes siblings can get in each other’s space.
Gisele Bundchen
I was born in 1957 as the second son of the late Sat Paul and Lalita Mittal. My father was a politician and, at one point of time, an MP. A gap of two years separates me from both my elder brother Rakesh and younger sibling Rajan.
Sunil Mittal
The oldest sibling always knows things that the younger ones don’t.
Mike Mills
I have three other siblings, so it’s all very equal – even when I get a little cocky, which I usually do. My brother keeps me in a headlock. He says that I’m not a celebrity in this house. I think I’m really chilled out and grounded.
Millie Bobby Brown
Is solace anywhere more comforting than that in the arms of a sister.
Alice Walker
I was lonely as a kid. Since I had no siblings, I spent a lot of time by myself and a lot of time reading.
Sandra Faber
Today, I’m proud and happy to say I’m very close to all the Bachchans, and Abhishek is like a sibling
Subhash K. Jha
You keep your past by having sisters. As you get older, they’re the only ones who don’t get bored if you talk about your memories.
Deborah Moggach
My siblings and I, we were raised on TV and films. Not a day went by that we weren’t watching one of three movies – ‘Caddyshack,’ ‘Animal House,’ ‘Beverly Hills Cop’ – on rotation. Our comedy, our personalities were set watching ‘Sesame Street’: these really sort of wacky, Jim Henson-y characters.
Teddy Sears
I do find the sibling connection endlessly fascinating, as I do all family dynamics. I like how siblings seem to create their own parentless mini-civilization within a family, one that has its own laws, myths, language, humor, its own loyalties and treacheries.
Jandy Nelson
My siblings and I have got the worst teeth in Britain.
Mel Giedroyc
Home is that youthful region where a child is the only real living inhabitant. Parents, siblings, and neighbors are mysterious apparitions who come, go, and do strange unfathomable thing in and around the child, the region’s only enfranchised citizen.
Maya Angelou
Music was in the air when I was growing up. My siblings Katy, Dave and Phil were musical; my dad worked in inner-city New York where a musical revolution was taking place – folk music, rock n’ roll, gospel music. My sister taught me to sing. My brothers taught me to play.
Sam Barry
Two of my three siblings are older, so I suppose I learned from them and became a very avid reader at a young age, which I think enough cannot be said for what you can discover through literature.
Julia Roberts
My family, we siblings are there for each other.
Arbaaz Khan
The family. We are a strange little band of characters trudging through life sharing diseases and toothpaste, coveting one another’s desserts, hiding shampoo, borrowing money, locking each other out of our rooms. . . and trying to figure out the common thread that bound us all together.
Erma Bombeck
I was the eldest child, so I know how it feels to have attention shared with a sibling.
Bless you, my darling, and remember you are always in the heart – oh tucked so close there is no chance of escape – of your sister.
Katherine Mansfield
I’m trying to learn how to listen to people and how not to think that this is all I am. It’s not going to change the fact that at home I’m going to put away the clean dishes, and I’m going to have to be nice to my siblings. It encourages me, but it doesn’t define me.
Bethany Dillon
Your sister is the only creature on earth who shares your heritage, history, environment, DNA, bone structure, and contempt for stupid Aunt Gertie.
Linda Sunshine
For me, I feel like I’m slowly accomplishing what I’ve always wanted to do. I’ve always dreamed really big, and my mom planted that in all three of my siblings: ‘You guys can do anything.’
Jessie James Decker
Oh, yeah. I grew up in Southern California in the 1960’s. It was very different. I was an only child as opposed to having siblings. My brothers all lived with my step-mom. I am very close to them, but we were not raised in the same house.
David Cassidy
Older siblings get more total-immersion mentoring with their parents before younger siblings come along. As a result, they get an IQ and linguistic advantage because they are the exclusive focus of their parents’ attention.
Jeffrey Kluger
My father is an amazing person. While he was a huge star, he never carried his stardom home and always remained simple and just our father at home. I have four siblings, and we were all very grounded. We lived a very simple life: would go in an auto rickshaw to school, played with normal boys.
Mahesh Babu
You’ll move from big brother to the adult world faster by cooking food for your younger siblings while your peers are playing video games.
Alphonso Davies
Sibling relationships are complicated. All family relationships are. Look at Hamlet.
Maurice Saatchi
When I was about six, I saw my elder siblings play chess and pestered my mother into teaching me. Very soon, I was beating everyone at home, and they thought it would be good to join a club. So my sister would take me to the Tal chess club on Thursdays and weekends.
Viswanathan Anand
The great thing about all my siblings is we all agree we had a horrendous childhood. It’s not like it doesn’t affect us now; it affects us every day, in everything we do.
Pat Conroy
Whether it be with your parents or your siblings, everyone is dealing with different kinds of things.
Justin Hartley
I learned from my parents to revere nature. Their way of teaching my siblings and I to respect the environment was to be in it, and so we spent a great deal of time outdoors.
Deb Haaland
There isn’t any sibling rivalry; I think we have very different, very individual career paths and have never really thought that way. He’s my brother. I only have one, and we’re very close. We wouldn’t ever allow that stuff affect our relationship.
Casey Affleck
One of the best things about being an adult is the realization that you can share with your sister and still have plenty for yourself.
Betsy Z. Cohen
I have a lot of cousins, but no siblings.
Stacy Martin
My father is an atheist. My mother is Buddhist. They encouraged my siblings and me to take the best part of other religions to make our own belief system.
Winona Ryder
Poor parenting may be reflected in poor sibling relationships.
Robert J. Waldinger
All my siblings being all different ages meant I got exposed to music that was 20-30 years older than me. And that was a big influence.
Zac Brown
I have siblings. And there are certain things I know that I can push their buttons. And they know they have certain things where they can push mine.
Catherine Zeta-Jones
Oh, yeah. I grew up in Southern California in the 1960′s. It was very different. I was an only child as opposed to having siblings. My brothers all lived with my step-mom. I am very close to them, but we were not raised in the same house.
David Cassidy
Being the youngest sibling, I’ve always been the most pampered child.
Soha Ali Khan
My siblings were a bit younger than me, and I was always entertaining them and making up stories.
Patti Smith
I came from a background where I had to share everything with seven other siblings. From hand-me-downs to sleeping in tents, we had to make what we had work. With WWE, they give you everything you need to perform at your best.
Lacey Evans
One can be a brother only in something. Where there is no tie that binds men, men are not united but merely lined up.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery
I have dark skin. My nickname is El Negro. They call me El Negro in Mexico because even in my country, the dark skin is evidence of Indian blood, a sign that one technically belongs to a third class. Even my grandmother had some kind of differentiation with me, because I was darker than my siblings.
Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu
I was lucky because I had parents who have enabled me to do whatever I was passionate about and never held my siblings and me back from anything. But I think a lot of people don’t have that experience.
Lynsey Addario
As children, my siblings and I were actively discouraged from acting. I have no memories of going on set with my parents – aside from ‘Gulliver’s Travels.’
Tom Sturridge
Whenever there was a show like ‘Calamity Jane,’ me and my siblings would be plonked on stage in a costume because it was easier to have us in it rather than sort out babysitters.
Katherine Kelly
An older sister is a friend and defender – a listener, conspirator, a counsellor and a sharer of delights. And sorrows too.
Pam Brown
I was always observing my siblings and hearing stories about their lives that turned out to be helpful as an actress.
Blake Lively
In my situation, every time I write a sentence, I’m thinking not only of the people I ended up in college with but my siblings, my family, my school friends, the people from my neighborhood. I’ve come to realize that this is an advantage, really: it keeps you on your toes.
Zadie Smith
My siblings weren’t playing music; I was the only one who wanted to buy a guitar and was listening on headphones the whole time.
Adam Granduciel
I would ask my parents something, but then go to my siblings. We were encouraged to bounce ideas off everyone.
Ahmet Zappa
Love is sunshine, music, nature, my puppies, my boyfriend, my parents, my siblings, my true friends. It’s a connection that allows us to coexist on this planet.
Syesha Mercado
When you grow up with siblings, you can be like, ‘Isn’t this weird? Isn’t this funny? Do we agree on this, or do we disagree?’ You have some point of reference, some touchstone. When you grow up an only child, everything is internalized.
Sam Richardson
We may look old and wise to the outside world. But to each other, we are still in junior school.
Charlotte Gray
I loved performing; I was always trying to impress my siblings by being a clown. I think that came from being the runt of the litter.
Rose Byrne
I sought my soul, but my soul I could not see. I sought my God, but my God eluded me. I sought my brother and I found all three.
A bond as important as that of a husband and wife, is the bond between siblings.
Lee Dong-wook
I think people that have a brother or sister don’t realize how lucky they are. Sure, they fight a lot, but to know that there’s always somebody there, somebody that’s family.
Trey Parker
I do have siblings, but I don’t have any brothers.
Sonequa Martin
My kids are used to new siblings coming in, so they’re already like, ‘When is the next one going to come?’ And I’m like, ‘Guys, you and the entire world need to stop asking me that!’
Hilaria Baldwin
My father was a man of the theater. I grew up in a theater family. As a young man, as a boy, I gypsied around with my siblings and my parents to, like, eight different towns, went to eight different schools. All those things were extremely formative, and I think that’s what happens.
John Lithgow
I grew up in northwest London on a council estate. My parents are Irish immigrants who came over here when they were very young and worked in menial jobs all their lives, and I’m one of many siblings.
Amanda Hale
Elder sisters never can do younger ones justice!
Charlotte Mary Yonge
Like most kids born in China back in the 1980s, I didn’t have any siblings. I spent my childhood in Chengdu and had the privilege of being both a boy and a girl.
Fala Chen
The English language has about 450,000 commonly used words, but more may be needed. What to you call someone who has lost a sibling or had a miscarriage? Or a gay person whose partner has died? Or an elderly person who has lost every friend and relative? So many heartaches can’t be found in the dictionary.
Jeffrey Zaslow
My birthday is always around Thanksgiving, and I always had to have turkey on my birthday. My mom was always, ‘Let’s celebrate your birthday on Thanksgiving.’ My other siblings got to have special dinners they liked. I resented turkey. For a long time, I hated turkey. I’ve kind of gotten over it.
Joey Chestnut
I have two lovely parents who support everything I do, two siblings, and three beautiful nieces. My house is always filled with laughter and fun!
Ariel Winter
I am a super social person. I’m an only child, so I thrive on social settings and being around my friends because I make them my siblings. When I’m not acting or singing or working on anything, I am making new relationships with people because, to me, my friendships are very important.
Hayley Orrantia
Once you’ve taken account of the quality of sibling relationships, knowing about the quality of parenting doesn’t add much information.
Robert J. Waldinger
You deliver 2,000 babies or better – 3,000 by that time. And that’s, you know, at minimum, three people each. And then if you take grandparents or grandparents of siblings and aunts and uncles, you know, you get – a 100,000 votes outta that
Tom Coburn
You’re surrounded by other people all the time. And you have to take responsibility if you’re the eldest or one of the older siblings, and you’re constantly communicating in a way that perhaps you aren’t if you’re in a smaller family.
Harry West
I have a very close family. I have four older siblings: two brothers and two sisters.
Nathan Chen
My little siblings keep me grounded. I’m a kid at heart.
Becky G
My dad was very much a Pan-Africanist and instilled in me and my siblings a want for that knowledge.
Kamasi Washington
It’s not the easiest thing in the world to act with Harry – we are very close. I’m not saying it won’t ever happen again but it’s best to work with other people. There are no professional boundaries at which to stop when you act with a sibling.
Luke Treadaway
Max cuffed his brother good-naturedly on the ear as River slid in past him and bent to kiss Sophia on the cheek. “Hello, are you sure you’re with the right brother?” Sophia had never had a younger sibling. But this man with his laughing eyes and bright smile… “Are you making me an offer?
Nalini Singh
All my siblings went to college, and my parents stressed getting school work done first before we could play.
Chris Mullin
They say that not matter how old you become, when you are with your siblings, you revert back to childhood.
Karen White
Never make a companion equal to a brother.
Broad-mindedness is related to tolerance; open-mindedness is the sibling of peace.
Salman Rushdie
Each holiday season, as family members arrive and couches are unfolded, my household settles into a palpable nostalgia. Poorly designed photo albums are pulled from the shelves. Home videos of prepubescent siblings in matching pajamas dance across the television screen.
Clint Smith
If parents are the fixed stars in the child’s universe, the vaguely understood, distant but constant celestial spheres, siblings are the dazzling, sometimes scorching comets whizzing nearby.
Alison Gopnik
On the surface, our lives seemed idyllic. My four siblings and I grew up on a 150-acre farm in Oxfordshire, and spent every holiday at our other house on the Cornish coast.
Rick Stein
Rutgers didn’t want me at first, but they wanted Jay. So I did what any smart sibling would do – I rode his coattails all the way onto the banks of the ol’ Raritan.
Devin McCourty
To serve in the modern military – or to be the uncle, parent or sibling of one who does – is to treat the necessary service and sacrifice of war with a sacred honor. In my community, we pile into cars and drive hundreds of miles to watch our children’s graduation from basic training.
J. D. Vance
In thee my soul shall own combined the sister and the friend.
Catherine Killigrew
I’m more interested in interpersonal relationships – between lovers families, siblings. That’s why I write about how we treat each other.
Terry McMillan
When it came to my childhood – growing up in a single-parent home, often struggling financially – my mother definitely instilled in me and my siblings this strength, this will, to just continue to survive and succeed.
Misty Copeland
The greatest thing about siblings is you constantly have someone putting you in check; there’s no room to get delusional about yourself.
Erin Foster
We can be the one to take the first courageous step toward the other and to do something or to try to do something other than rejection or attack. We can do this with our siblings and our mates and our friends and our colleagues. We can do this with the disconnection and the discord all around us.
Elizabeth Lesser
My love for cooking began when I was young. Because my parents were in the army, they were both really busy. A lot of times I’d have to cook for the family; I’d rotate with my siblings. It started out as a chore, but as I got older, my mom started to see that I was really good at it. I became her sous chef.
Tia Mowry
I’ve been doing music for a pretty long time, since I was a kid, and I must have been around 10 years old when I started playing shows with my siblings.
Stacey King
Your siblings are the only people in the world who know what it’s like to have been brought up the way you were.
Betsy Z. Cohen
I couldn’t imagine what it would be like to be one of so many, to have not just parents and siblings but cousins and aunts and uncles, an entire tribe to claim as your own. Maybe you would feel lost in the crowd. Or sheltered by it. Whatever the case, one things was for sure: like it or not, you’d never be alone.
Sarah Dessen
Sisters annoy, interfere, criticize. Indulge in monumental sulks, in huffs, in snide remarks. Borrow. Break. Monopolize the bathroom. Are always underfoot. But if catastrophe should strike, sisters are there. Defending you against all comers.
Pam Brown
I was the youngest girl among my siblings, a simple village girl, who perhaps was luckier than other siblings as I have the chance to go to school.
Nadia Murad
My siblings and I were watching the evening news and we saw it flashed across the screen that our father had been shot… we just knew that something terrible had happened.
Martin Luther King III
My mother graduated from high school in 1969, and on January 3, 1971, she gave birth to me. She was married later that year, but by the time I was 10, she was a divorced single mother of two young boys. To make ends meet, we moved in with my grandparents, who were also housing two of my mother’s siblings and their kids.
Marc Veasey
Til I was 10 years, I didn’t know I had only two siblings. I always thought I had 10 and that they were all my family.
Ram Charan
The greatest motivator and leveler in my life has been my yoga practice. It has taught me how to be a grown-up, follow through, give back, be compassionate, be a better mother, wife, daughter, sibling, friend, and just show up.
Emily Carpenter
I am the youngest of four siblings, and we’re all so close. I don’t know where I would be without my brothers and sister. I secretly believe that my parents love me the most!
Marissa Jaret Winokur
Although people have different perceptions, I personally define myself as a mother. My life has been revolving around children since a young age. Before my marriage, I was involved with my siblings’ kids, so I can be called a mother figure in the family.
Reham Khan
There was a woman in Tunisia called Madame Pinot. She was a midwife and had helped in the birth of my siblings and me. I assisted her. I helped women give birth to a lot of babies when I was very young.
Azzedine Alaia
My parents were both Spanish-speakers and they used to speak to me and my siblings in Spanish and we’d answer them in English.
America Ferrera
Sisters share the scent and smells… the feel of a common childhood.
Pam Brown
If parents are the fixed stars in the childs universe, the vaguely understood, distant but constant celestial spheres, siblings are the dazzling, sometimes scorching comets whizzing nearby.
Alison Gopnik
Half the time when brothers wrestle, it’s just an excuse to hug each other.
James Patterson
My parents split before my fifth birthday, and I moved with Mom and my three siblings to her native Oahu.
Janet Mock
I have the biggest sweet tooth! You name it, I will eat it. My all-time favorite is my mother’s butter cake. Every time I go home, my mom will already have the cake made because I love it so much. This makes my siblings mad because they think she favors me. I don’t care because she probably does!
Michael Strahan
I noticed that when my daughter was born, my son really, really liked her. But then as she started getting older, and as she started crawling around our house and touching different things that were his, sibling rivalry issues started appearing.
Gene Luen Yang
Being the youngest, my siblings took great care of me and pushed me in all the right directions.
Mike Budenholzer
We received our initial inspiration from our family, as from childhood we exhibited an inclination towards art. While Johns randomly drew pictures, I used to present dramas for my siblings. But when we grew up, we both got addicted to our interests and it was fueled by political activism.
Joy Mathew
I was the seventh child in a family of eight siblings. We lost our father very young, and my mother had pretty much single-handedly brought us up.
Shiv Nadar
Siblings: children of the same parents, each of whom is perfectly normal until they get together.
Sam Levenson
Red was the blood of the siblings massacred in the North, black was for mourning them, green was for the prosperity Biafra would have, and, finally, the half of a yellow sun stood for the glorious future.
Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
My mother is a very strong woman. We were seven kids; five of them passed away. My elder brother and I are alive. My mother lost five kids, her husband, her parents and siblings. But she is so strong, she is living for the people who are alive.
Nana Patekar
I am one of seven kids, number five of seven, and the first of my siblings to graduate from high school and the first to graduate from college.
Andrew Gillum
Not a lot of siblings have opportunity [of realizing ourselves and realizing each other], because they’re always being pushed together so much. They need their time apart in order to realize themselves and realize who they are.
Willow Smith
I think ‘Love Sonia’ is a beautiful story of two sisters. Whoever will watch this film will remember their relationship with their sibling.
Mrunal Thakur
Parents always stay older than you, but sibling sort of become adults together, and that complicates that relationship, I think.
Carrie Coon
I’m from a big family; I have four younger siblings. My parents are still happily married together. I grew up moving around a lot, and my family was certainly not affluent.
Alice Greczyn
My mom was a single mother. She had six siblings in a big Irish family, all descended from shanty Irish folks who arrived after the Famine. They settled along the Cuyahoga River. It’s the river that caught on fire. We’re real good at picking real estate.
Rory O’Malley
Thomas More rarely discussed his siblings, and two of them are never mentioned by him. It is likely that they were part of that infant mortality which had provoked such concern for early baptism.
Peter Ackroyd
When I was really little, I wanted to be a vet. My four older siblings and I grew up on my dad’s beef farm near Bolton, and I loved all our animals.
Sara Cox
If you want to know how your girl will treat you after marriage, just listen to her talking to her little brother.
Sam Levenson
My weight was a huge issue as a young person. For my mother, for my father, and for my siblings… nobody in my family is overweight. And here I come.
Wendy Williams
Though dozens of siblings have made it to the NFL, it’s rare for two brothers to play at an elite level. The Barbers did it. So did the Mannings and Pounceys. The Bennetts, both former Pro Bowlers, belong in this club.
Mina Kimes
One of my brothers, Eric, who is one year older than me, was actually the first one to start boxing, and being the youngest sibling, I wanted to do what he did, so I pushed my parents to let me join.
Mandy Bujold
I grew up in Chicago with a single mother. I’m the youngest of six kids, and my older siblings are much older than me. When your siblings are that much older, you never get to ride in the front seat of the car, you never get the chicken breast.
Mellody Hobson
The funny thing is that everyone thinks I’m naturally dark because all of my siblings are, but I’m naturally dirty blond.
Khloe Kardashian
Sometimes siblings do not get along, so there is no guarantee that having another baby is good for the first one.
Sonja Morgan
I don’t even know who I am. All I know is that I am the sibling, daughter, sister, the friend of somebody, and I need to know who I am outside of that.
Erin Foster
The sweetest thing we ever had was, like, animal crackers in the pantry. I think my parents sort of passively made sure that we didn’t have a lot of junk food at our disposal, and I think that helped me and all my siblings growing up with how to approach nutrition and eating right.
Andrew Luck
Being a dad is like – there’s nothing more important. So the exploration of that in stories, with parents and fathers and brothers, siblings, I just think that you’re always in the terrain of love, whether it’s absence of love or the giving of love or the desire for love.
Gavin O’Connor
I don’t think you ever really get over losing a sibling, especially when you are with that person every day.
Trevor Ariza
Everyone if so warm, and the children know my from the children’s books. Their oldest siblings or young parents know me from “Here Comes the Groom” or “Waterboy.”
Henry Winkler
Whatever you do they will love you; even if they don’t love you they are connected to you till you die. You can be boring and tedious with -sisters, whereas you have to put on a good face with friends.
Deborah Moggach
My parents were liberal intellectuals but even they expected me to stay at home and look after my younger siblings and do the housework.
Sara Paretsky
I’m the youngest sibling of a very outspoken, very popular character. As much as I love to share the stage with him and share the narrative with him we we have had our entire lives, I have my own creative outlook on things.
Valentin Chmerkovskiy
A sibling represents a person’s past, present, and future.
John Corey Whaley
All of my friends who have younger siblings who are going to college or high school – my number one piece of advice is: You should learn how to program.
Mark Zuckerberg
Everyone can relate to loving someone and hating them in the same moment – husbands, wives, partners, siblings, parents, friends. It’s kind of universal in that way.
Elizabeth Henstridge
It certainly helped just having acres and acres of green grass, a back lawn where there’s goal posts and plenty of siblings and cousins around to compete with and play against.
Beauden Barrett
There may or may not be a God or gods; the Siblings do not concern themselves with proving or disproving such a thing. By definition, gods are more powerful than men, and thus quite able to fend for themselves without help.
Steve Perry
My favorite holiday memory was sitting at home all day in my pajamas during winter break for school watching a bunch of old Christmas movies like ‘Jack Frost’ and ‘Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer’ with my siblings and parents.
I’m actually an only child with very supportive parents, so I didn’t have the sibling rivalry to draw from.
Aidan Gallagher
I hoped Lissa remained the only one with a surprise sibling.
Richelle Mead
If dysfunction means that a family doesn’t work, then every family ambles into some arena in which that happens, where relationships get strained or even break down entirely. We fail each other or disappoint each other. That goes for parents, siblings, kids, marriage partners – the whole enchilada.
Mary Karr
Some people have concerns about what it means to leave our responsibilities to robots. I think to some degree in every family, you’ve got siblings who disagree over the care for their parents.
Jake Schreier
The idea of your younger sibling being in pain and realizing you are the cause of that pain is unbearable.
Claire Foy
Siblings are the guarantors that the private childhood world – so unlike the adult world that scientists are only just beginning to understand it – is a fully shared and objective one.
Alison Gopnik
I couldn’t have foreseen all the good things that have followed my mother’s death. The renewed energy, the surprising sweetness of grief. The tenderness I feel for strangers on walkers. The deeper love I have for my siblings and friends. The desire to play the mandolin. The gift of a visitation.
Mary Schmich
I always saw myself as more of a watcher, although I suppose my siblings might have a different viewpoint on it.
Amy Adams
I’m lucky because I have a job I love. I really miss being away from home, being in my own bed, seeing my animals and siblings, having my moms cookies. I have a couple cats. I got a kitten about a year ago and now Im going on the road so I wont see him for a while. I feel bad.
Michelle Branch
I was lucky. My family is wonderful. And it’s funny, because most of my best friends come from very large families. So it always felt as if I had lots of siblings, though in the end I had to leave them and go home. I kind of got the best of both worlds as a kid.
Sophia Bush
If you have a sister and she dies, do you stop saying you have one? Or are you always a sister, even when the other half of the equation is gone?
Jodi Picoult
If one sibling does something, the other will fill the opposite role. I found, at least for my brother and I in real life, that seems to be a thing.
Alycia Debnam-Carey
Ramona was originally an accidental character I added to the Henry Huggins books because I noticed that none of the characters had siblings. I added Ramona as Beazus’ pestering little sister.
Beverly Cleary
Until one has loved an animal a part of one’s soul remains unawakened.
Anatole France
I don’t believe an accident of birth makes people sisters or brothers. It makes them siblings, gives them mutuality of parentage. Sisterhood and brotherhood is a condition people have to work at.
Maya Angelou
I am from L.A., my siblings are from L.A., but both my parents are from Guatemala, and I have a lot of family members from Mexico.
Anthony Gonzalez
I’ve always felt very insecure being around in-laws, even my siblings – like the guy who made a bad decision, or the guy who would never just fess up that I’m not good enough to make it, or I don’t have what it takes.
Walker Hayes
Because of my unique experience as my mom’s child, the beginning of my journey was more about me trying to figure out who I was on my own. My mom is one of the greatest moms and so supportive of all my siblings and of all of us being who we are, and not who she wanted us to be.
Tracee Ellis Ross
My father… very generous, very philanthropic, very charitable man. My siblings and I and my mother continue with always appreciating and always giving back. It’s something I hope that I’ve become a role model for my children.
Steve Tisch
Caleb and Tris exchange a look. The skin on his face and on her knuckles is nearly the same colour, purple-blue-green, as if drawn with ink. This is what happens when siblings collide – they injure each other in the same way.
Veronica Roth
Nicotine and alcohol embraced in my system like long-parted siblings, grateful to me for reuniting them.

Your spouse, a sibling, a friend need to read your drafts. They have to be people unafraid to tell you what sucks. For early feedback, that’s more important than professional editorial skill. Most people know what sucks.
Douglas Brunt

I do believe that O’Zell needs a sibling. She needs to have someone to play with.
My siblings and I were raised to honor and cherish those who serve. They are, as my father said, America’s most precious resource. I still believe in that vision of the American military. I want my three daughters to believe in it as well.
Kerry Kennedy
Mum obviously did not earn much money to feed me and my siblings. She worked hard to raise us, but there was always something missing.
My childhood was a happy one. I was captain of the school sports team and played cricket after class. I had five younger siblings and a large loving family that lived together. We are still very close.

Our dynamic is different from other siblings. We’re always fighting but we know that we love each other and we get along. People don’t see that. If my sister didn’t want to be in my videos, she would’ve told me.
Bretman Rock
I was 20 when I was sentenced to death. My life had been on a one-way path to self-destruction for years. I don’t remember too much about my early life, but I think I had a happy childhood, growing up in Philadelphia in a loving family with five siblings.
