Famous quotes containing the word pass:

    I always pass on good advice. It is the only thing to do with it. It is never of any use to oneself.
    Oscar Wilde (1854–1900)

    But I go with my friend to the shore of our little river, and with one stroke of the paddle, I leave the village politics and personalities, yes, and the world of villages and personalities behind, and pass into a delicate realm of sunset and moonlight, too bright almost for spotted man to enter without novitiate and probation.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    I’d let my golden chances pass me by.
    Oscar Hammerstein II (1895–1960)
