Famous quotes containing the word pass:

    I may not tell
    of the forms that pass and pass,
    of that constant old, old face
    that leaps from each wave
    to wait underneath the boat
    in the hope that at last she’s lost.
    Hilda Doolittle (1886–1961)

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

    O for a man who is a man, and, as my neighbor says, has a bone in his back which you cannot pass your hand through! Our statistics are at fault: the population has been returned too large. How many men are there to a square thousand miles in this country? Hardly one.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
