Being Older Sister quotes by Jay Richards
#1. this degraded view of custom and courtesy, far from being merely cosmetic, threatens our capacity to sustain culture and forge authentic connections with other people and peoples.16 The loss of courtesy in the older and richer sense of the term signals a growing inability to connect with anyone but our own increasingly limited selves. #Quote by Jay Richards
Being Older Sister quotes by Sarah Rees Brennan
#2. This may be our only hope," said Lillian. "Don't think too long."

Lillian turned and left, the baggy back of her cardigan seeming to sweep behind her like a cape.

"I wasn't kidding. Someone really has to talk to her about her motivational speaking," said Dad. "She's meant to be the town leader, isn't she?"

"She's the only adult sorcerer alive who isn't strictly evil," said Rusty. "So she wins the crown by default, I guess. Unless Henry wants it."

Kami supposed Henry was technically grown up, though he was only a couple of years older than Rusty.

"Your town seems very nice," said Henry, in the tones of one being very polite when offered a large unwanted present that was on fire. "But I only just got here. I don't feel qualified to lead."

"Okay," said Dad. "So she's all we've got to work with, as Ash and Jared are both so extremely and tragically seventeen. Fine. So what we need to do now is get the town behind her. Worse politicians have been elected every day."

"I don't think Lillian will be kissing any babies anytime soon," Holly said doubtfully.

"Since she probably hates babies. And kittens. And rainbows and sunshine," said Angela, who sounded like she had a certain amount of sympathy for Lillian's viewpoint. #Quote by Sarah Rees Brennan
Being Older Sister quotes by Dawn Sister
#3. He chuckles. "So you're saying you were influenced by teenage vampires and kids on adventures without their parents?" he asks with a shrug. "That's pretty much what I've been influenced by as well."
"Yeah, but come on, this one has Kiefer Sutherland in it when he was super hot," I tell him. "Before he started looking like his dad."
"Kiefer Sutherland has a dad?" Cal asks me and I groan, because I know where this is going from the impish tone in his voice. "He must be even older than you." I notice his smirk and I nudge him playfully.
"Asshole," I hiss. "Put the damn DVD into the machine and let's watch it, then you can decide who was the hotter vampire: Kiefer Sutherland or Robert Pattinson.
"Don't forget David Boreanaz," he reminds me. "He was a hot vampire too. #Quote by Dawn Sister
Being Older Sister quotes by Laura Ingalls Wilder
#4. Ma!" she cried. "There is a Santa Claus, isn't there?"

"Of course there's a Santa Claus," said Ma.

"The older you are, the more you know about Santa Claus," she said. "You are so big now, you know he can't be just one man, don't you? You know he is everywhere on Christmas Eve. He is in the Big Woods, and in Indian Territory, and far away in York State, and here. He comes down all the chimneys at the same time. You know that, don't you?"

"Yes, Ma," said Mary and Laura.

"Well," said Ma. "Then you see--"

"I guess he is like angels," Mary said, slowly. And Laura could see that, just as well as Mary could.

Then Ma told them something else about Santa Claus. He was everywhere, and besides that, he was all the time.

Whenever anyone was unselfish, that was Santa Claus.

Christmas Eve was the time when everybody was unselfish. On that one night, Santa Claus was everywhere, because everybody, all together, stopped being selfish and wanted other people to be happy. And in the morning you saw what that had done.

"If everybody wanted everybody else to be happy all the time, then would it be Christmas all the time?" Laura asked, and Ma said, "Yes, Laura. #Quote by Laura Ingalls Wilder
Being Older Sister quotes by William Joseph Burns
#5. Never say never to anything, .. As you get older, being alone isn't very desirable. You want someone to drink your coffee with, to share your television with. I missed male companionship. #Quote by William Joseph Burns
Being Older Sister quotes by Hannah Moskowitz
#6. Camus-boy, you're always going to be the same you, just older. It's not like there's a moment when you wake up and go, Shit, I'm grown-up, I don't feel like myself anymore.'
I don't tell him, but this is the scariest fucking thing I've ever heard in my life. Being grown-up should feel like a big transition. It can't be something that, despite my best efforts, I've been drifting closer and closer to every summer. It needs to be a shock. I need to know at what point to stop holding on. And that moment will suck, and probably every moment after that will suck, but at least I'll know that everything that came before really was valid. I really was young and innocent. I wasn't fooling myself. #Quote by Hannah Moskowitz
Being Older Sister quotes by Philo Of Alexandria
#7. The Intelligible World within the Divine Mind Compared to a Blueprint within the Architect's Mind

For God, being God, judged in advance that a beautiful copy would never be produced except from a beautiful pattern and that no sense object would be irreproachable that was not modeled after an archetypal and intelligible idea. So when he willed to create this visible world, he first formed the intelligible world, so that he might employ a pattern completely Godlike and incorporeal for the production of the corporeal world, a more recent image of one that was older, which was to comprise as many sensible kinds as there were intelligible ones in the other. #Quote by Philo Of Alexandria
Being Older Sister quotes by Donna Tartt
#8. It is a terrible thing to learn as a child that one is a being separate from all the world, that no one and no thing hurts along with one's burned tongues and skinned knees, that one's aches and pains are all one's own. Even more terrible, as we grow older, to learn that no person, no matter how beloved, can ever truly understand us. Our own selves make us most unhappy, and that's why we're so anxious to lose them ... #Quote by Donna Tartt
Being Older Sister quotes by Carew Papritz
#9. Old is old at any age. Old is when you quit asking questions about this, that, and everything. Old is when you forget how to love-or worse, don't care. Old is when you don't want to dance anymore. Old is when you don't want to learn anything new except how to be old. Old is when people tell you that you are old-and you believe them. #Quote by Carew Papritz
Being Older Sister quotes by Susan Sontag
#10. Most men experience getting older with regret, apprehension. But most women experience it even more painfully: with shame. Aging is a man's destiny, something that must happen because he is a human being. For a woman, aging is not only her destiny ... it is also her vulnerability. #Quote by Susan Sontag
Being Older Sister quotes by Ciara
#11. As we get older, it's important for us to help hand back some of what we've gained as we've grown older. It should be one of your responsibilities - it's almost like being a mentor. #Quote by Ciara
Being Older Sister quotes by Jonathan Ames
#12. I wondered where the person was who had taken my place, who wanted to know what news people had been told. I'm always looking for the person who replaces me, who thinks the things I do, who fills in for me when I'm not there. I know there is someone younger than me doing what I did and someone older doing what I will do, and someone my age being just like me. #Quote by Jonathan Ames
Being Older Sister quotes by Sherrilyn Kenyon
#13. Let me tell you a story, Alix. This ship ... the Talia? It's named after my father's older sister. She killed herself when she was fourteen because she couldn't stand living the horror of her life for another day. With her death she both condemned and freed my father from his monster of a father. I never knew the pain of her life or his. But I named this ship after her to remind me of all the children out there like her and Omari ... the children out there like your sister who are silent in their pain. They have no voice and no hope. But I hear them. Every time I think of my parents. Every time I see Omari, I hear the sobs that are kept inside for fear of it making their lives worse, and I will not stand by and see your sister torn apart by an animal. You help me nail him and I swear to you, I will lay Merjack down at your feet and hold him there while you take your revenge. (Devyn) #Quote by Sherrilyn Kenyon
Being Older Sister quotes by Delvene Delaney
#14. I love being my age. I love getting older. What you lose in looks, you gain in wisdom. I might not be as physically beautiful on the outside today, but I'm much more beautiful on the inside. True beauty comes from inside ... #Quote by Delvene Delaney
Being Older Sister quotes by Nicole Holofcener
#15. When I hear that a project takes place out of town, the material better be terrific, and it has to come at the right time. My kids are getting older, so it's getting easier, but being a mother - it's a difficult thing to juggle. #Quote by Nicole Holofcener
Being Older Sister quotes by Richard LaGravenese
#16. When I was young, I had two older sisters, and since I was the youngest in my family, my mom took me around with her all the time. I was forever with her when she was having coffee in the middle of the afternoon with her three sisters. And they would talk about men. I absorbed a lot of that. #Quote by Richard LaGravenese
Being Older Sister quotes by Nora Roberts
#17. If I'd known you were available, Dee, and looking for work,I'd've hired you." Burke Logan, settled back in his chair and winked at his wife's cousin.
"We like to keep the best on at Royal Meadows." Adelia twinkled at him across the table in the track's dining room. He was as handsome and as dangerous to look at as he'd been nearly twenty years before when she'd first met him.
"Oh,I don't know." Bruke trailed a hand over his wife's shoudler. "We have the best bookkeeper around at Three Acres."
"In that case,I want a raise." Erin picked up her wine and sent Burke a challenging look. "A big one. Trevor?" Her voice was smooth, shimmering with Ireland as she addressed her son. "Do you have in mind to eat that pork chop or just use it for decoration?"
"I'm reading the Racing Form, Ma."
"His father's son," Erin muttered and snagged the paper from him. "Eat your dinner."
He heaved a sigh as only a twelve-year-old boy could. "I think Topeka in the third, with Lonesome in the fifth and Hennessy in the sixth for the trifecta. Dad says Topeka's generous and a cinch tip."
At his wife's long stare, Burke cleared his throat. "Stuff that pork chop in your mouth, Trev.Where's Jean?"
"She's fussing with her hair," Mo announced, and snatched a french fry from Travis's plate. "As usual," she added with the worldly air only an older sister could achieve, "the minute she turned fourteen she decided her hair was the bane of her existence. Huh. Like having lon #Quote by Nora Roberts
Being Older Sister quotes by Daphne Gottlieb
#18. I am a few years older now and I know this: There are tastes of mouths I could not have lived without; there are times I've pretended it was just about the sex because I couldn't stand the way my heart was about to burst with happiness and awe and I couldn't be that vulnerable, not again, not with this one. That waiting to have someone's stolen seconds can burn you alive. That the shittiest thing you can do in the world is lie to someone you love; also that there are certain times you have no other choice – not honoring this fascination, this car crash of desire, is also a lie. That there is power in having someone risk everything for you. That there is nothing more frightening than being willing to take this freefall. That it is not as simple as we were always promised. Love – at least the pair-bonded, prescribed love – does not conquer all. #Quote by Daphne Gottlieb
Being Older Sister quotes by Kenny Rogers
#19. Growing older is not upsetting; being perceived as old is. #Quote by Kenny Rogers
Being Older Sister quotes by Boots Riley
#20. I lived in Detroit until I was six. My older sister was living with us, and she listened to the Ohio Players and Stevie Wonder, so I grew up listening to stuff like that. #Quote by Boots Riley
Being Older Sister quotes by Mabel Cheung
#21. Being a very bad daughter, I never really took time to sit down and listen to my mother's story, and she passed away in 2003. I became very guilty and began to spend a lot of time with older people. I listened carefully to their stories. #Quote by Mabel Cheung
Being Older Sister quotes by E. M. Forster
#22. My dear,' said the old men gently, 'I think that you are repeating what you have heard older people say. You are pretending to be touchy; but you are not really. Stop being so tiresome, and tell me instead what part of the church you want to see. To take you to it will be a real pleasure. #Quote by E. M. Forster
Being Older Sister quotes by Marie Lu
#23. I've always had this interest in sibling relationships because I don't have any siblings. I'm completely a product of the one-child policy in China, so I always kind of wished that I had an older brother or a younger brother or sister just to have that bond, so I find myself constantly writing about that relationship. #Quote by Marie Lu
Being Older Sister quotes by Christopher Dines
#24. Two monks were once travelling together down a wet and muddy road. The rain was torrential, making it almost impossible to walk along the path. As the two men were trudging along, a beautiful girl dressed in silk appeared. She was unable to cross the path and looked distressed.

"Let me help you", said the older monk. He picked her up and carried her over the mud. His younger male companion did not utter a word that night until they reached their lodging temple. Then after hours of restrained conversation, the younger monk exclaimed: "We monks do not touch females; it is too tempting for us and can create a bad outcome". The older monk looked into the younger monks eyes and said, "I left the girl on the road. Are you still carrying her?"

This ancient Zen story illustrates beautifully how so many of us are trapped in the habit of constantly "re-living" the past in our minds, thus dishonouring the present moment. The young monk wasted hours distressing himself with judgment, speculation, anxiety, resentment and ultimately self-perpetuated unhappiness as a direct result of not being mindful. #Quote by Christopher Dines
Being Older Sister quotes by Darren Aronofsky
#25. I grew up in a family with two very strong women, my mother and my older sister, and they were big influences on my life. #Quote by Darren Aronofsky
Being Older Sister quotes by Ron Brackin
#26. OMG, I think I've become a feminist. I mean, I've always been in favor of women voting and being paid the same as men for doing the same job. But then, the other day on the train, I didn't get up and give a woman my seat. I thought about it. But then I thought it might insult her, might imply that I considered her weaker than a senior citizen, maybe even inferior in some way. But that's not what prompted me to fire up my laptop. I was brushing my teeth this morning and thinking about romance. People do that when they get older, I suppose. Romance is one area where men and women are still different - unisex lavatories and fashions notwithstanding. And here's the difference: a romantic woman envisions a knight on a white horse; a romantic man envisions a dragon in a dark cave. Think about it next time you brush your teeth. #Quote by Ron Brackin
Being Older Sister quotes by Sasha Grey
#27. I've really been trying to go back to when I was 18 and rediscover the things that drove me, and my passions. How do I get back to being that strong? Because I feel like as I get older, I'm not as fearless as I was when I was 18. #Quote by Sasha Grey
Being Older Sister quotes by Tana French
#28. When you're a little kid, you think people are just one thing; but then you get older, and you realize it's not that simple. Chris wasn't that simple. He was cruel and he was kind. And he didn't like realizing that. It bothered him, that he wasn't just one thing. It made him feel fragile. Like he could break into pieces any time, because he didn't know how to hold himself together. That was why he did that with those other girls, went with them and kept it secret: so he could try out being different things and see how it felt, and he'd be safe. He could be as lovely as he wanted or as horrible as he wanted, and it wouldn't count, because no one else would ever know. #Quote by Tana French
Being Older Sister quotes by Gloria Steinem
#29. An older man who seems to be the leader of the Jesus Tshirt group says that the Bible forbids abortion in its commandment "Thou shall not kill."
But being in the Bible Belt, people really know their Bible, and an older woman cites Exodus 21:22–23, a passage that says a man who causes a pregnant woman to miscarry must pay a fine but is not charged with murder, not unless the woman herself dies.
Thus the Bible is making clear, that a dependent life is not the same as an independent life. #Quote by Gloria Steinem
Being Older Sister quotes by Gertrude Stein
#30. It is natural not to care about a sister certainly not when she is four years older and grinds her teeth at night. #Quote by Gertrude Stein
Being Older Sister quotes by Kazuma Kamachi
#31. I know of an 'older boy' who stuck to his own path without rotting despite being a Level 0. On that day back then when he spoke with his back turned and protecting me, he clearly surpassed me and my all-too-pathetic Level 5 ability. Your actual skill doesn't matter. Coolly calculating out all the numbers is pointless. No matter how many arguments you prepare, you have no choice but to accept defeat once he walks in from beyond the horizon. I am very familiar with a Level 0 like that☆ #Quote by Kazuma Kamachi
Being Older Sister quotes by Shane Bunting
#32. I have a few different managers, and one of them hit me up today and was like 'I'm going to set you up with these guys doing beats and such ... ' I was like cool, as long as I can do what I do. Just because kids are going like this now, I'm not going to do that because I am not 18 years old. I'm not going to rap like I'm in grade three because it's popular. I'm just not going to do that. It's not because I'm being stubborn, and I definitely not that guy that is getting older and does not understand the younger generation. #Quote by Shane Bunting
Being Older Sister quotes by Katharine Hepburn
#33. Being an actor is such a humiliating experience because you are selling yourself to the public, your face, your personality, and that is humiliating. As you get older, it becomes more humiliating because you've got less to sell. #Quote by Katharine Hepburn
Being Older Sister quotes by Willa Ford
#34. My major influence was my ten years older sister. #Quote by Willa Ford
Being Older Sister quotes by Mark Ruffalo
#35. The true cost of the pollution that is being dumped into the atmosphere and manifests itself in our sick children dealing with asthma or older folks dealing with heart and lung disease from the pollutions created by the burning of these fossil fuels, may not be reflected in the prices of fossil fuels, but that does not mean we aren't paying a high price for them. #Quote by Mark Ruffalo
Being Older Sister quotes by Marvin Hamlisch
#36. I started studying music at the age of five and a half. My older sister was taking piano lessons. When her teacher left our apartment, I would get up on the piano bench and start picking out the notes that were part of my sister's lessons. #Quote by Marvin Hamlisch
Being Older Sister quotes by Elle Fanning
#37. As my sister got older, I saw how excited she got when she got to do all of that stuff. I was always like, "One day, I'll get to do older parts." I thought that was cool. #Quote by Elle Fanning
Being Older Sister quotes by Catherine Opie
#38. One of the greatest things about being an artist is, as you get older, if you keep working hard in relationship to what you want the world to be and how you want it to become, there is a history of interesting growth that resonates with different moments in your life. #Quote by Catherine Opie
Being Older Sister quotes by John Lanchester
#39. It gave her a sudden sense that it was now her turn to grow old, to find the world changing, sliding away from the old ways of being and behaving, so that you were gradually a stranger to the place you lived in. The woman priest with jogging clothes and a BlackBerry gave Mary a glimpse of what life must have been like for her mother as she grew older. #Quote by John Lanchester
Being Older Sister quotes by Terri E Apter
#40. We may be aware of small increments of getting older; we may meet an increasing number of people who make us uneasy with their youth; but the fact of being old ourselves comes as a surprise, and is often accompanied by the belief that there has been some mistake. #Quote by Terri E Apter
Being Older Sister quotes by Luke Wilson
#41. It's nice, though, getting older and being able to do different roles. #Quote by Luke Wilson
Being Older Sister quotes by David Oyelowo
#42. I think what a lot of people don't realize is how much being the leader of this movement weighed upon him. After all, he [Dr. Martin Luter King] was only 39 years-old when he was assassinated, and only 36 during the Selma campaign. He always seemed older than he actually was, and I believe part of that had to do with just how much life he had to live in order to lead this movement. #Quote by David Oyelowo
Being Older Sister quotes by David Sedaris
#43. I wanted to deny him, but that's the terrible power of a diary: it not only calls forth the person you used to be but rubs your nose in him, reminding you that not all change is evolutionary. More often than not, you didn't learn from your mistakes. You didn't get wiser, but simply older, growing from the twenty-five-year-old who got stoned and accidentally peed on his friend Katherine's kitten to the thirty-five-year-old who got drunk and peed in the sandbox at his old elementary school. "The sandbox!" my sister Amy said at the time. "Don't you realize that children have to pee in there? #Quote by David Sedaris
Being Older Sister quotes by Nora Ephron
#44. One of the few advantages to not being beautiful is that one usually gets better-looking as one gets older. I am, in fact, at this very moment gaining my looks. #Quote by Nora Ephron
Being Older Sister quotes by Jacqueline Kelly
#45. That night, when SanJuanna had cleared the main course and brought dessert in, my mother called for quiet and said,
"Boys, I have an announcement to make. Your sister made the apple pies tonight. I'm sure we will all enjoy them very much."
"Can I learn how, ma'am?" said Jim Bowie.
"No, J.B. Boys don't bake pies," Mother said.
"Why not?" he said.
"They have wives who make pies for them."
"But I don't have a wife."
"Darling, I'm sure you will have a very nice one someday when you're older, and she'll make you many pies. Calpurnia, would you care to serve?"
Was there any way I could have a wife, too? I wondered as I cut through the browned C and promptly shattered the entire crust. #Quote by Jacqueline Kelly
Being Older Sister quotes by Pope Benedict XVI
#46. To some extent, this urge to break out of the ordinary is present in every generation. Part of being young is desiring something beyond everyday life and a secure job, a yearning for something really truly greater. Is this simply an empty dream that fades away as we become older? No! Men and women were created for something great, for infinity. Nothing else will ever be enough. #Quote by Pope Benedict XVI
Being Older Sister quotes by Jacqueline MacInnes Wood
#47. As I get older, the things that I want are starting to make more sense. Being able to travel makes me happy, and I am a person that lives in the moment. I also want to live a good life. Traveling makes everyday issues seem so much smaller and really changes my perspective on things. #Quote by Jacqueline MacInnes Wood
Being Older Sister quotes by J. Kenner
#48. Just a normal dinner party, Dallas thought. Just your average, every day evening around the table with the man who may well have masterminded your kidnapping, the sister you're in love with, and the older woman you used to sleep with.
No doubt about it
as a group, they made one hell of a Norman Rockwell painting. #Quote by J. Kenner
Being Older Sister quotes by Colum McCann
#49. Give life long enough and it will solve all your problems, including the one of being alive. #Quote by Colum McCann
