Famous quotes containing the word crossed:

    Twilight and evening bell.
    And after that the dark!
    And may there be no sadness of farewell,
    When I embark;

    For though from out our bourne of Time and Place
    The flood may bear me far,
    I hope to see my Pilot face to face
    When I have crossed the bar.
    Alfred Tennyson (1809–1892)
