Gittin Daf 16
The Gemara mentions the concept that the amount of water necessary to connect two bodies of water to be considered as one is that it should be " tofeach al menas lehatfiach" wet enough that when one touches the water it can transfer that water to somewhere else. This concept is also a message to us that if we cannot transfer our own "water" i.e. the Torah to someone else then it is lacking in its own right and not considered "wet".
