What is pass water?

Famous quotes containing the words water and/or pass:

    We’ve only just begun to learn about the water and its secrets, just as we’ve only touched on outer space. We don’t entirely rule out the possibility that there might be some form of life on another planet. Then why not some entirely different form of life in a world we already know is inhabited by millions of living creatures?
    Harry Essex (b. 1910)

    Along the garden-wall the bees
    With hairy bellies pass between
    The staminate and pistillate,
    Blest office of the epicene.
    —T.S. (Thomas Stearns)
