Famous quotes containing the word pan:

    When Pan sounds up his minstrelsy;
    His minstrelsy! O base! This quill,
    Which at my mouth with wind I fill,
    Puts me in mind, though her I miss,
    That still my Syrinx’ lips I kiss.
    John Lyly (1553–1606)

    A ‘spasm band’ is a miscellaneous collection of a soap box, tin cans, pan tops, nails, drumsticks, and little Negro boys. When mixed in the proper proportions this results in the wildest shuffle dancing, accompanied by a bumping rhythm.
    —For the City of New Orleans, U.S. public relief program (1935-1943)

    I don’t pan out on the prophets
    An’ free-will, an’ that sort of thing—
    But I b’lieve in God an’ the angels,
    Ever sence one night last spring.
    John Milton Hay (1838–1905)
