Passes

Famous quotes containing the word passes:

    Our Luke shall leave us, Isabel; the land
    Shall not go from us, and it shall be free;
    He shall possess it, free as is the wind
    That passes over it.
    William Wordsworth (1770–1850)

    I bet the worst part about dying is the part where your whole life passes before you.
    Jane Wagner (b. 1935)

    A faithful lover is a character greatly out of date, and rarely now used but to adorn some romantic novel, or for a flourish on the stage. He passes now for a man of little merit, or one who knows nothing of the world.
    Anonymous, U.S. women’s magazine contributor. Weekly Visitor or Ladies Miscellany, p. 20 (April 1803)
