Road Passes

Famous quotes containing the words road and/or passes:

    Does the road wind uphill all the way?
    Yes, to the very end.
    Will the day’s journey take the whole long day?
    From morn to night, my friend.

    But is there for the night a resting-place?
    A roof for when the slow, dark hours begin,
    Christina Georgina Rossetti (1830–1894)

    Who dreamed that beauty passes like a dream?
    For these red lips, with all their mournful pride,
    Mournful that no new wonder may betide,
    Troy passed away in one high funeral gleam,
    And Usna’s children died.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
