What is pass?

Famous quotes containing the word pass:

    To doubt the end were want of trust in God,
    Who, if he has decreed
    That we must pass a redder sea
    Than that which rang to Miriam’s holy glee,
    Will surely raise at need
    A Moses with his rod!
    Henry Timrod (1828–1867)

    There are some moments in life, some feelings.... One can only point to them—and pass by.
    Ivan Sergeevich Turgenev (1818–1883)

    All neighbourly content and easy talk are gone,
    But there’s no good complaining, for money’s rant is on,
    He that’s mounting up must on his neighbour mount
    And we and all the Muses are things of no account.
    They have schooling of their own but I pass their schooling by,
    What can they know that we know that know the time to die?
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
