Famous quotes containing the words pass away and/or pass:

    Let us hope ... that by the best cultivation of the physical world, beneath and around us; and the intellectual and moral world within us, we shall secure an individual, social and political prosperity and happiness, whose course shall be onward and upward, and which, while the earth endures, shall not pass away.
    Abraham Lincoln (1809–1865)

    Until you have a son of your own . . . you will never know the joy, the love beyond feeling that resonates in the heart of a father as he looks upon his son. You will never know the sense of honor that makes a man want to be more than he is and to pass something good and hopeful into the hands of his son. And you will never know the heartbreak of the fathers who are haunted by the personal demons that keep them from being the men they want their sons to be.
    Kent Nerburn (20th century)

    Great is the art,
    Great be the manners, of the bard.
    He shall not his brain encumber
    With the coil of rhythm and number;
    But, leaving rule and pale forethought,
    He shall aye climb
    For his rhyme.
    Pass in, pass in,” the angels say,
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
