Comte (, ) is a title of Catalan, Occitan and French nobility. In the English language, the title is equivalent to count, a rank in several European nobilities. The corresponding rank in England is earl. A comte ranks below a marquis or margrave (the French have two equivalent words for the same title) and above a vicomte (viscomte in Catalan and Occitan, "viscount").

Famous quotes containing the word comte:

    Sleep is a reward for some, a punishment for others. For all, it is a sanction.
    Isidore Ducasse, Comte de Lautréamont (1846–70)

    Throughout my life, I have seen narrow-shouldered men, without a single exception, committing innumerable stupid acts, brutalizing their fellows and perverting souls by all means. They call the motive for their actions fame.
    Isidore Ducasse, Comte de Lautréamont (1846–1870)

    Throughout the centuries, man has considered himself beautiful.... I rather suppose that man only believes in his own beauty out of pride; that he is not really beautiful and he suspects this himself; for why does he look on the face of his fellow-man with such scorn?
