Squabble
 
  To pass life in squabbling thus is to bear on the collar without relaxing, like the luckless remount horses at the rivers, who do not rest even when they stop, and who always draw though they cease to march.
            —Pierre Augustine Caron de Beaumarchais

  Squabble like brother and sister.
            —Sir Richard Steele
