What is pass water?

Famous quotes containing the words water and/or pass:

    Camels are snobbish
    and sheep, unintelligent; water buffaloes, neurasthenic—
    even murderous.
    Reindeer seem over-serious.
    Marianne Moore (1887–1972)

    It comes to pass oft that a terrible oath, with a swaggering accent sharply twanged off, gives manhood more approbation than ever proof itself would have earned him.
