Famous quotes containing the word passage:

    In times past there were rituals of passage that conducted a boy into manhood, where other men passed along the wisdom and responsibilities that needed to be shared. But today we have no rituals. We are not conducted into manhood; we simply find ourselves there.
    Kent Nerburn (20th century)

    O harmless Death! whom still the valiant brave,
    The wise expect, the sorrowful invite,
    And all the good embrace, who know the grave
    A short dark passage to eternal light.
    Sir William Davenant (1606–1668)

    Sorrow is a kind of rust of the soul, which every new idea contributes in its passage to scour away. It is the putrefaction of stagnant life, and is remedied by exercise and motion.
    Samuel Johnson (1709–1784)
