Famous quotes containing the words county, palm and/or beach:

    I could draw Bloom County with my nose and pay my cleaning lady to write it, and I’d bet I wouldn’t lose 10% of my papers over the next twenty years. Such is the nature of comic-strips. Once established, their half-life is usually more than nuclear waste.
    Berkeley Breathed (b. 1957)

    When John Henry was a little fellow,
    You could hold him in the palm of your hand,
    He said to his pa, “When I grow up
    I’m gonna be a steel-driving man.
    Gonna be a steel-driving man.”
    Unknown. John Henry (l. 1–5)

    When the inhabitants of some sequestered island first descry the “big canoe” of the European rolling through the blue waters towards their shores, they rush down to the beach in crowds, and with open arms stand ready to embrace the strangers. Fatal embrace! They fold to their bosoms the vipers whose sting is destined to poison all their joys; and the instinctive feeling of love within their breasts is soon converted into the bitterest hate.
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)
