I was the younger brother to all my uncles, so they were going through their childhood and their teenage years, and I was right there.
You must recognize that the way to get the good out of your brother and your sister is not to return evil for evil.
My brother’s my best friend, without a doubt. Me and my big sister get along so well. She moved to East London, though, so points off, but she’s wicked. And then my little sister is a little genius. She’s super talented and such a great person, always been far more mature and cool than me.
I remember once in junior high school, on a Friday, my mom came home from work and said to my brother and I, ‘You know, between us, we have only 27 cents, but we have food in the refrigerator, we have our little garden out back, and we’re happy, so we are rich.’
Love is what makes the world go around. I know it’s a big cliche to use, but it is the absolute truth. There is nothing else like it. I know that is what everybody is striving to feel: in relationships, in brother- and sisterhood, and in all of the things that we aspire to have in our lives.
I always thought I was a little shy, especially compared to my brother and my sister, but I guess I was always the kid doing performances in the front room.
My character’s kind of grown up with Katniss. The beginning of the story, they’re more or less brother and sister than anything. They’re best friends. They’ve been keeping each other alive. It’s a little frustrating, for the character. As the character, not as me.
I had an older brother who was very interested in literature, so I had an early exposure to literature, and and theater. My father sometimes would work in musical comedies.
My brother said ‘I want to start acting,’ and me and my sister just said, ‘Oh we’ll try it, we’ll see.’ It was just one of those things – we were just like, ‘Oh, we’ll see what happens.’
My older brother Mike is an excellent trumpet player. By the time he was 12, he was playing around Kansas City in classical situations. He was already an amazing talent.
Growing up in a Jewish matriarchal world inside the patriarchal paradise of Salt Lake City, Utah, gave me increased perspective on gender issues, as it also did my gay brother and my lesbian sister. Our younger sister is the perfect Jewish-American wife and mother, and is fiercely proud of that fact.
For example, for me, my brother helped me get a manager, which I don’t take for granted. It’s tough getting a manager, let alone one that actually cares about you and is smart. But from there, no one’s going to cast me just because I’m James Franco’s little brother.
The kind of issues that we face as detectives are similar to what the other married couples out there are facing, or the brother and sister, or the brother and brother are facing. Relationships are universal.
When I came into the WWF, the first thing I really didn’t want to have was being Bret Hart’s little brother.
When I first started training Tae Kwon Do, it was more just for discipline. My brother and I were two knuckleheads and my mom being a single mother wanted us to get more discipline somewhere other than her yelling at us. But I had no visions at all or aspirations of going from Tae Kwon Do into mixed martial arts.
We rarely know what motivates somebody in their work, and it’s usually a particular moment in their life. For me, that moment is my brother’s incarceration and the ways in which this country has decided to neglect, abuse, and sometimes torture people with severe mental illness, especially if they’re black.
I was born late – what my mother calls the last kick of a dying horse. There’s three of us children, but I’m 13 or 14 years younger than my brother and sister.
I have an older brother and older sister. My older sister is the girliest girl on the planet, so I just hated everything about that. I did anything my brother did. He actually got me into wrestling. I watched it because he did, and I played video games because he did.
I plan to go to college in Southampton, a fishery studies college. Again, my brother was down there about two years ago and he said it was great, so I’m looking forward to that.
My brother and I are always trying to figure out a way to work again together.
I like to try to give something back to the community because I feel fortunate for how I was raised and how my life turned out. Each year, with the help of my brother, Grant, we run a charity golf tournament to raise money for the Ontario Federation for Cerebral Palsy.
I was very aware of ‘League of Legends’ because my brother plays it a lot, but I hadn’t gotten the chance to play it before.
Mom spent the time that she was supposed to be a kid actully raising children, her younger brother and younger sister. She was tough as nails and did not suffer fools at all. And the truth was she could not afford to. She spoke the truth, bluntly, directly, and without much varnish. I am her son.
I come from a family of all women and one boy, my brother. We’re all women and we’re all precocious and opinionated and like to have fun and we always had friends in the house and we were always, like, half-naked.
The men who learn endurance, are they who call the whole world, brother.
I was drawing before I did music, but me, I’m a dilettante. I jump into everything until I find one thing that I enjoy more than others. Rap was something that was always there because my brother used to rap – piano and musical instruments is something I learnt on the way.
I’m proud of what my brother has done. His success motivates me. He’s a world champion.
Luckily I have a brother who looks after my administration and my money, because I’m a total spendthrift.
I just did a picture book called The Wildest Brother on Earth, and you will find both of my children in there.
I had an older brother who passed away recently, an older sister and a younger brother.
I think if I could have a boyfriend like my brothers I’d be really happy. But without the brother thing.
I had lost relationships with my dad, my brother and sister and I was just like, you know what, this is definitely the time to just get it together and so that’s what I did.
I have a younger brother.
My mother and father, with my newborn brother and me in the backseat of the 1938 Ford sedan that would be our family car for the next decade, moved to that hastily constructed Army ammunition depot called Igloo, on the alkaline and sagebrush landscape of far southwestern South Dakota. I was three years old.
When my dad was still playing, he was away for five years on and off, so it just used to be me and my mum at home until my little brother came along when I was five.
My brother Joseph, who is 14 years older than me, was already on his national military compulsory service when I was 4 years old, the age from which I remember myself.
LeBron‘s been like a big brother to me, watching me play and giving me pointers on just little things. I really look up to him.
Influenced by him, and probably even more so by my brother Theodore (a year older than me), I soon became interested in biology and developed a respect for the importance of science and the scientific method.
I made my name and reputation DJing in hip-hop clubs in New York. ‘Celebrity DJ’ is a term that I hated. To me a celebrity DJ is someone that’s on ‘Big Brother’ or in some kind of B-movie who gets a gig to DJ even though they’re not talented enough to do it.
My brother was a huge fan of ‘The Hunger Games‘ for a couple of years before I got the role, so he was really excited when he heard that I got the role.
My younger brother ended up the British chess champion 10 times, a record.
It’s really about making opportunities for yourself and connecting with people on a more-than-normal level. That opens doors. You never know if the caterer’s brother is someone. You don’t know who someone is having dinner with that night. So being a nice person and touching people creates opportunity.
I am inherently a little brother – that’s just my nature. It has to do with my sister being very strong and wanting to protect me. It’s the natural order of things.
My father is a scientist , my mother a teacher, my brother is a Naval Officer and I am an entertainer – we all are doing out a bit for our country!
I figure I’ll be champ for about ten years and then I’ll let my brother take over – like the Kennedys down in Washington.
I learned hard lessons in life; I had to because I had so much happen: My mother died my sophomore year in high school. The next year, same day, my brother dropped dead. Two years after that, I got married because my girlfriend got pregnant. The year after my wedding, my father – who I had only recently met – died.
I have no ambitions at all! I have none… seriously. I want to be a good father. I want to be a good husband. I want to be a good son, a good brother, a good family member. I don’t have any ambition to direct a film or write a play. I like acting.
It doesn’t matter on ‘Big Brother’ how big you are, anyone can dominate the series.
Since my brother died in 1982, my parents and I had formed a shaky tripod of a family; now that I’d lost my father too, it was too easy for me to glimpse a future point where I alone was the keeper of not just my own childhood memories, but of my family lore.
I used to clean my brother and sister’s rooms. And I would go to friends’ houses and clean their rooms, too.
I had a brother who was my savior, made my childhood bearable.
I think TV is all about caring, and if you don’t care about a character in a drama or a person when they get voted out of a reality show, it’s bad TV. I wouldn’t care if you dropped a bomb on the ‘Big Brother’ house.
I don’t think my dad really knew what to do with me, as a daughter. He treated me like a boy; my brother and I were treated the same. He didn’t do kid stuff. There were no kid’s menus; you weren’t allowed to order off the kid’s menu at dinner – we had to try something from the adult menu.
I have lost someone I loved as a brother, as a closest friend, and a remarkable human being. We have also lost one of the best damn actors we’ll ever see.
Originally, I wanted a pop career and formed a girl-band ‘Genie Queen‘ managed by Andy McClusky from ‘Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark‘, but it didn’t work out. My brother John is the talented singer and song-writer with ‘The Razz,’ while my other brother Sean is a footballer for Telford United.
Nothing can stop me from loving my brother.
My parents didn’t give me any scope to feel sorry for myself. They were just like ‘go play with your brother, go climb a tree, go fall off your motorbike, do whatever you want. Don’t come crying to us when you get scratched. You’ve got prosthetic legs – that’s very nice.’
My brother was a lifeguard in a car wash.
My brother and I are best friends.
And let me tell you, you boys of America, that there is no higher inspiration to any man to be a good man, a good citizen, and a good son, brother, or father, than the knowledge that you come from honest blood.
My brother Larry. He taught me how hard work and dedication to the game was the only way to make it. He’s taken care of all my business activities for me and my family for many years, and I thank him for that.
My father was murdered when I was two. Duane, even though he was only a year and 18 days my elder, he became a father figure to me. I would have done anything for my brother – I loved him so much.
From the very beginning, we just sort of made things up together. That’s one of the great things about having a twin brother; you have a sort of feedback loop, where you can bounce things off of each other.
I went to Mission Bay High School. Me and my brother, we both went there.
I’m really not into technology at all. My brother has to plug the Xbox in for me.
I intend to fight and I want to win. But my priorities are basically to be a good Brother and a strong one, and to try to be a good father one day.
‘Macbeth‘ was the first play I ever read. In fact, I remember my brother Tom, who is six years older than me, coming home from school and telling me about it. He was the one that really got me going.
I adored my brother when I was younger, so I wanted to do everything he did.
I had sort of exhausted all the avenues playing in Detroit. So again, through the stewardship of my brother, I ended up in California and went to the Musicians Institute in L.A. I wanted to get better as a player.
When I was in college, my brother, B.R. Chopra, who is everything to me, was a director in Bombay. He taught me filmmaking. What I am today is because of him.
I grew up in a house where my father encouraged my brother and me to fail. I specifically remember coming home and saying, ‘Dad, Dad, I tried out for this or that and I was horrible,’ and he would high-five me and say, ‘Way to go.’
I always wanted a little brother because I felt like the little brother had to do everything.
My mom and dad passed away from cancer. Within nine months, I lost both of my folks. Immediately after that, I had a horrible betrayal where my brother, who worked for me, stole a lot of my money. He’s in jail now.
My father is an anchor and my brother is as well.
When I first joined SAG, there was another John Reilly. My dad was John Reilly, too, but growing up I was John John. Nobody in life calls me John C. It’s more like, ‘Hey you, Step Brother!’
I had always thought of Chris as my kid brother and watching how this kid, as I still thought of him, had affected so many people‘s lives around the world was incredible.
I’m definitely the worker. My brother is the jokester.
And bitter waxed the fray; Brother with brother spake no word When they met in the way.
Clapton asked my brother to play on his record. I thought that was the most wonderful thing in the world.
A friend loveth at all times, and a brother is born for adversity.
I liked to write from the time I was about 12 or 13. I loved to read. And since I only spoke to my brother, I would write down my thoughts. And I think I wrote some of the worst poetry west of the Rockies. But by the time I was in my 20s, I found myself writing little essays and more poetry – writing at writing.
I have a dream of re-creating the fantastic family I grew up in with my brother and my parents. I am lucky that I have such a good image of family life – my father and mother are still in love, still happy.
Just before my final year of high school, my brother, sister and I moved with my mother to San Francisco.
That’s a disgusting thought to have to fight my brother. I don’t even appreciate being asked about that.
We opened Panda Inn on June 8, 1973. The whole family – my parents, a brother and sister – all worked at the restaurant for free. We lived in a two-bedroom apartment in San Gabriel and didn’t have any money.
I have an older brother who is 21 and attends UC Berkley.
Big Brother is watching… look busy.
There’s a lot of times that both myself and my brother wish, obviously, that we were just completely normal.
In this country, there is a segregation of Black Turks and White Turks. Your brother Tayyip belongs to the Black Turks.
Honestly my brother has always supported me through everything and I can’t wait to support him 100 per cent.
Obviously, having my brother on the bag is big for me. He’s my best friend. So you know, having my brother there, we spend a lot of time with our caddie. So, someone you enjoy being around.
I raced with my brother from when I started to 2014 when I finished karting.
My brother Art was a doo-wopper. He had a group that sat out on a park bench in New Orleans and sang harmonies at night, and they’d go around and win all the talent shows and get all the girls, you know.
I keep my skin – especially on my face and neck – out of the sun. My brother died of melanoma eight years ago, and I’ve got SPF on all the time, 24-7. It makes you realize, the sun is a wonderful thing, but it can be a very devastating thing. So sunscreen is key, and a lot of laughter, too.
My brother is an agent, so he is in the business. Is he my agent? No, no, no. That would never work.
I do not have a family, per se. When I was younger, I grew up in foster care with my brother and sister. It was really a struggle, and knowing that there were people out there with tight-knit families really made my childhood an unfortunate one.
I didn’t have any role models really. My best friend was a dog. My mum and dad saved a dog from the gutter and that dog was my brother before Jesse was born. Sami was his name and he was my role model.
In the ‘Garnethill’ trilogy, people always forget that Maureen O’Donnell’s dad was a journalist and she did art history at uni and her brother did law, but no-one ever thinks they’re middle-class – they’re just working class because they speak with accents.
My younger brother and I have been writing together, mainly for fun, for years, but we’ve been improvising together since we were kids. Literally.
I had a really wonderful upbringing. We were a tight family. It was wonderful to grow up with so many siblings. We were all just a year or two apart, and we were always so supportive of each other. I learned everything from my older brother and sister and taught it to my younger sisters.
We had good white friends who advised us against taking the war path. My friend and brother, Mr. Chapman, told us just how the war would end.
