Inelegantly, and without my consent, time passed.
I'm not saying I'd already done anything, actually, but I'd passed my experimental streak.
The storm passed by my shop, and I had to escape from the shower of stones, tear gas and rubber bullets to save my life.
The chicken did not cross the road. The road passed beneath the chicken.
There, where I have passed, the grass will never grow gain.

You can't write for the cultural environment - if you do that, by the time it comes out, that cultural environment has passed. You have to be aiming for something that's original - that's the only way you can have any kind of impact.
The day of individual happiness has passed.
Not a time with him passed that I didn't say, "You should've been a comedian." [Vincent Price] was hilarious. He was just such a quick, funny wit. I don't think most people would think that about him, and it was really surprising to me. But man, the guy had a brilliant wit.
Guleed passed me the completed IIP on Caroline Linden-Limmer and pointed out a note which registered that she’d been granted a Gender Recognition Certificate when she was eighteen – changing her legal gender from male to female. ‘So . . .’ I started, but was cut off by the vast silence emanating from Stephanopoulos behind us. I looked over at Nightingale, who looked quizzically back, and decided to explain the implications later. Surprisingly, when I did, his reaction was outrage that somebody had to apply to a panel to determine what gender they were – he didn’t say it, but I got the strong impression that he felt such panels were intrinsically un-British. Like eugenics legislation, banning the burka and air conditioning.
He's passed from rising hope to elder statesman without any intervening period whatsoever.
