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

    The Soul rules over matter. Matter may pass away like a mote in the sunbeam, may be absorbed into the immensity of God, as a mist is absorbed into the heat of the Sun—but the soul is the kingdom of God, the abode of love, of truth, of virtue.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    I learned from my two years’ experience that it would cost incredibly little trouble to obtain one’s necessary food, even in this latitude; that a man may use as simple a diet as the animals, and yet retain health and strength.... Yet men have come to such a pass that they frequently starve, not for want of necessaries, but for want of luxuries.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    I felt my cheek
    Alter, to see the shadow pass away,
    Whose grasp had left the giant world so weak
    That every pigmy kicked it as it lay;
    Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792–1822)
