What is pass water?

Famous quotes containing the words water and/or pass:

    ‘Tis not enough on roots and in the mouth,
    But give me water heavy on the head
    In all the passion of a broken drouth.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    I never can pass by the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York without thinking of it not as a gallery of living portraits but as a cemetery of tax-deductible wealth.
