“There’s nobody in the world that knows me better than my sister.” – Tia Mowry
Even if you no longer live in the same home, it’s hard to keep secrets from your sister. Additionally, they always know things about you that no one else will ever know.

“A sister smiles when one tells one’s stories – for she knows where the decoration has been added.” – Chris Montaigne
