Her strength supports, and helps me become stronger everyday. I was just a little girl when I first came to the United States for studying abroad.

... I depend on other people like her to lift me up. There are times I can see sadness in her, but I do not know what to do. Maybe what makes she sad is also the reason for me to be sad. She covers it so well that I do not want to believe that there is something or someone can put her down. I want to care for her the same way that she cares about me.

There are times I think that there will be days I cannot see her again. How would it be like if it actually happens. My heart sinks a bit, and my tears are just ready to run on my face like each time I say farewell to her after each vacation. She is more than a sister to me.

- Characterization in Sister Carrie The theme of unrequited love and unfulfilled ambitions, against a backdrop of a nation being transformed by industrialism and capitalism, provides the substance of Theodore Dreiser's Sister Carrie.
