Famous quotes containing the word pass:

    The great events of life often leave one unmoved; they pass out of consciousness, and, when one thinks of them, become unreal. Even the scarlet flowers of passion seem to grow in the same meadow as the poppies of oblivion.
    Oscar Wilde (1854–1900)

    There is hope for the future. When the world is ready for a new and better life all this will some day come to pass in God’s good time.
    Earl Felton, and Richard Fleischer. Captain Nemo (James Mason)

    When my soul leaves this human dwelling, I will not consider myself to have completely died, but to pass from one state to another, given that, in you and by you, I remain in my visible image in this world.
    François Rabelais (1494–1553)
