Famous quotes containing the words county and/or clay:

    Don’t you know there are 200 temperance women in this county who control 200 votes. Why does a woman work for temperance? Because she’s tired of liftin’ that besotted mate of hers off the floor every Saturday night and puttin’ him on the sofa so he won’t catch cold. Tonight we’re for temperance. Help yourself to them cloves and chew them, chew them hard. We’re goin’ to that festival tonight smelling like a hot mince pie.
    Laurence Stallings (1894–1968)

    With earth’s first clay they did the last man knead,
    There of the last harvest sowed the seed,
    And what the first morning of creation wrote,
    The last dawn of reckoning shall read.
    Edward Fitzgerald (1809–1883)
