nevermore (not comparable)

  1. Never again.
    • 1845, Edgar Allan Poe, The Raven (published in the New York Evening Mirror)
      And the Raven, never flitting, still is sitting, still is sitting
      On the pallid bust of Pallas just above my chamber door;
      And his eyes have all the seeming of a demon's that is dreaming,
      And the lamplight o'er him streaming throws his shadow on the floor;
      And my soul from out that shadow that lies floating on the floor
           Shall be lifted - nevermore!
