Famous quotes containing the word pan:

    When Pan sounds up his minstrelsy;
    His minstrelsy! O base! This quill,
    Which at my mouth with wind I fill,
    Puts me in mind, though her I miss,
    That still my Syrinx’ lips I kiss.
    John Lyly (1553–1606)

    I don’t pan out on the prophets
    An’ free-will, an’ that sort of thing—
    But I b’lieve in God an’ the angels,
    Ever sence one night last spring.
    John Milton Hay (1838–1905)
