Famous quotes containing the word pass:

    I have a vocabulary all my own. I “pass the time” when it is wet and disagreeable. When it is fine I do not wish to pass it; I ruminate it and hold on to it. We should hasten over the bad, and settle upon the good.
    Michel de Montaigne (1533–1592)

    There the traveler meets, aghast,
    Sheeted memories of the past—
    Shrouded forms that start and sigh
    As they pass the wanderer by—
    White-robed forms of friends long given,
    In agony, to the earth—and heaven.
    Edgar Allan Poe (1809–1849)

    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)
