How to use passage in a sentence?

  1. Alice Bowman:

    We'll find out how it's doing -- whether it survived the passage through the Pluto system. Hopefully it did, we're counting on that. But there's a little bit of drama because this is true exploration. New Horizons ' is flying into the unknown.

  2. Chris Gunness:

    There must be safe passage for the sick and the wounded and the dying civilians.

  3. W. Somerset Maugham:

    I have an idea that some men are born out of their due place. Accident has cast them amid certain surroundings, but they have always a nostalgia for a home they know not. They are strangers at their birthplace, and the leafy lanes they have known from childhood or the populous streets in which they have played, remain but a place of passage. They may spend their whole lives aliens among their kindred and remain aloof among the only scenes they have ever knows. Perhaps it is this sense of strangeness that sends men far and wide in the search for something permanent, to which they may attach themselves. Perhaps some deep-rooted atavism urges the wanderer back to lands which his ancestors left in the dim beginnings of history. Sometimes a man hits upon a place to which he mysteriously feels that he belongs. Here is the home he sought, and he will settle amid scenes that he has never seen before, among men he has never known, as though they were familiar to him from his birth. Here at last he finds rest.

  4. Brice Loose:

  5. Ralph Picardo:

    I am confident in what he said, there is an overwhelming possibility the remains will be found... the chances are getting better with the passage of time.
