Famous quotes containing the word impression:

    I verily believe
    My fair impression may
    Be all from that one day
    No shadow crossed but ours....
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    Father Time is not always a hard parent, and, though he tarries for none of his children, often lays his hand lightly upon those who have used him well; making them old men and women inexorably enough, but leaving their hearts and spirits young and in full vigour. With such people the grey head is but the impression of the old fellow’s hand in giving them his blessing, and every wrinkle but a notch in the quiet calendar of a well- spent life.
    Charles Dickens (1812–1870)

    The unity of effect or impression is a point of the greatest importance. It is clear, moreover, that this unity cannot be thoroughly preserved in productions whose perusal cannot be completed at one sitting.
    Edgar Allan Poe (1809–1849)
