Famous quotes containing the word confer:

    To confer dignity, forgive. To express contempt, forget.
    Mason Cooley (b. 1927)

    To do something, say something, see something, before anybody else—these are things that confer a pleasure compared with which other pleasures are tame and commonplace, other ecstacies cheap and trivial.
