Passed

Famous quotes containing the word passed:

    We saw by the flitting clouds, by the first russet tinge on the hills, by the rushing river, the cottages on shore, and the shore itself, so coolly fresh and shining with dew, and later in the day, by the hue of the grape-vine, the goldfinch on the willow, the flickers flying in flocks, and when we passed near enough to the shore, as we fancied, by the faces of men, that the fall had commenced.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Thy early smile has stayed my walk;
    But midst the gorgeous blooms of May,
    I passed thee on thy humble stalk.
    William Cullen Bryant (1794–1878)

    Unaffected by “the march of events,”
    He passed from men’s memory in l’an trentiesme
    De son eage; the case presents
    No adjunct to the Muses’ diadem.
    Ezra Pound (1885–1972)
