How to use impertinent in a sentence?

  1. Aleister Crowley:

    It sometimes strikes me that the whole of science is a piece of impudence; that nature can afford to ignore our impertinent interference.

  2. Arthur Schopenhauer:

    Noise is the most impertinent of all forms of interruption. It is not only an interruption, but is also a disruption of thought.

  3. Charles Lamb:

    A poor relation is the most irrelevant thing in nature, a piece of impertinent correspondence, an odious approximation, a haunting conscience, a preposterous shadow, lengthening in the noon-tide of our prosperity. He is known by his knock.

  4. Sinclair Lewis:

  5. Jacob Bronowski:

    That is the essence of science: ask an impertinent question, and you are on the way to a pertinent answer.
