Famous quotes containing the word impart:

    He has more to impart than to receive from his generation. He is another such a strong and finished workman in his craft as Samuel Johnson was, and, like him, makes the literary class respectable.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    When I did first impart my love to you,
    I freely told you all the wealth I had
    Ran in my veins: I was a gentleman;
    And then I told you true.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    As I stand over the insect crawling amid the pine needles on the forest floor, and endeavoring to conceal itself from my sight, and ask myself why it will cherish those humble thoughts, and hide its head from me who might, perhaps, be its benefactor, and impart to its race some cheering information, I am reminded of the greater Benefactor and Intelligence that stands over me the human insect.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
