Famous quotes containing the word pass:
“There is no logical reason why the camel of great art should pass through the needle of mob intelligence.”
—Rebecca West (18921983)
“To doubt the end were want of trust in God,
Who, if he has decreed
That we must pass a redder sea
Than that which rang to Miriams holy glee,
Will surely raise at need
A Moses with his rod!”
—Henry Timrod (18281867)
“The fox, he felt, had never seen his past disposed of like a fall of water. He had never measured off his day in moments: anotheranotheranother. But now, thrown down so deeply in himself, into the darkness of the well, surprised by pain and hunger, might he not revert to an earlier condition, regain capacities which formerly were useless to him, pass from animal to Henry, become human in his prison, X his days, count, wait, listen for anotheranotheranotheranother?”
—William Gass (b. 1924)
