Famous quotes containing the word share:

    I am for those who believe in loose delights, I share the midnight orgies of young men,
    I dance with the dancers and drink with the drinkers.
    Walt Whitman (1819–1892)

    I feel the desire to be with you all the time. Oh, an occasional absence of a week or two is a good thing to give one the happiness of meeting again, but this living apart is in all ways bad. We have had our share of separate life during the four years of war. There is nothing in the small ambition of Congressional life, or in the gratified vanity which it sometimes affords, to compensate for separation from you. We must manage to live together hereafter. I can’t stand this, and will not.
    Rutherford Birchard Hayes (1822–1893)

    When writers meet they are truculent, indifferent, or over-polite. Then comes the inevitable moment. A shows B that he has read something of B’s. Will B show A? If not, then A hates B, if yes, then all is well. The only other way for writers to meet is to share a quick pee over a common lamp-post.
    Cyril Connolly (1903–1974)
