### Famous quotes containing the word partial:

“America is hard to see.

Less *partial* witnesses than he

In book on book have testified

They could not see it from outside....”

—Robert Frost (1874–1963)

“We were soon in the smooth water of the Quakish Lake,... and we had our first, but a *partial* view of Ktaadn, its summit veiled in clouds, like a dark isthmus in that quarter, connecting the heavens with the earth.”

—Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

“The only coöperation which is commonly possible is exceedingly *partial* and superficial; and what little true coöperation there is, is as if it were not, being a harmony inaudible to men. If a man has faith, he will coöperate with equal faith everywhere; if he has not faith, he will continue to live like the rest of the world, whatever company he is joined to.”

—Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
