Famous quotes containing the word pass:

    The style, the house and grounds, and “entertainment” pass for nothing with me. I called on the king, but he made me wait in his hall, and conducted like a man incapacitated for hospitality. There was a man in my neighborhood who lived in a hollow tree. His manners were truly regal. I should have done better had I called on him.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Doubt is an uneasy and dissatisfied state from which we struggle to free ourselves and pass into the state of belief; while the latter is a calm and satisfactory state which we do not wish to avoid, or to change to a belief in anything else.
    Charles Sanders Peirce (1839–1914)

    There are few things on which we can pass a sincere judgement, because there are few things in which we have not, in one way or another, a particular interest.
    Michel de Montaigne (1533–1592)
