I have notified the speaker that I will temporarily step aside from my position as majority leader pursuant to rules of the House Republican Conference and the actions of the Travis County district attorney today.
Gratitude is one of the least articulate of the emotions, especially when it is deep. I can express with very limited adequacy the passionate devotion to this land that possesses millions of our people, born, like myself, under other skies, for the privilege that that this County has bestowed in allowing them to partake of its fellowship.felix frankfurter
As I inched sluggishly along the treadmill of the Maycomb County school system, I could not help receiving the impression that I was being cheated out of something. Out of what I knew not, yet I did not believe that twelve years of unrelieved boredom was exactly what the state had in mind for me.harper lee
Anne Arundel County has become the world’s epicenter of military intelligence and defense-related information technology.john r. leopold
On protests against going to war with Iraq : "One woman bore a picture of some female genitalia – possibly hers, the provenance was obscure – over the caption 'This Bush Is For Peace.' Another waxed eloquent: 'Trim Bush.' Out in Marin County somewhere, other bushes for peace disrobed, lay down on a hillside, and formed the words 'No War.' I wonder if there are any conflicted nudists, with a bush for Iraq and a rack for Bush.mark steyn
Ah! County Guy, the hour is nigh, The sun has left the lea.walter scott
Ah, County Guy, the hour is nigh, The sun has left the lea, The orange flower perfumes the bower, The breeze is on the sea.
Anybody who tries to comes here is crazy. Sullivan County is a great big parking lot.
The story of draft resistance in Columbia County is one of the most complex tales of such activity in Pennsylvania, primarily because of the lacunae of primary sources and the nature of the surviving primary sources.
One can scarcely imagine a speaker at a meeting of a County medical society discussing the possible elimination of some disease by public health measures, and then qualifying his observations by the statement that many practitioners make a living out of treating the disease in question; and that unless the physicians are vigilant to prevent the adoption of such measures, this source of business will be taken from them.Yet speakers at barassociationmeetings arefrequently heard tomake similar observations about the effect of proposed reforms.
As long as possible live free and uncommitted. It makes but little differencewhether youare committedtoa farm or the County jail.Henry David Thoreau
There is a genius (in our sense of the word) shines in all he (John Dunning) says. I begin to think there is something in the air of Devonshire that grows clever fellows I could name 4 or 5 , superior to the product of any other County of Englandthomas gainsborough
Nothing that the law-makers or the law-breakers or the MCC or the Board of Control or any conferences or County committees or pressmen or captains or players can do to it or have done to it over the years - nothing can affect cricket's basic worth or irresistible attraction.Ben Travers
One of the good things about Larkin is that he still has you firmly by the hand as you cross the finishing-line, whereas reading Auden is like doing a parachute-drop: for a while the view is wonderful, but then you end up on your back in the middle of a ploughed field and in the wrong County.Alan Bennett
[A] less conventional member of the squirearchy... a political radical, reforming County magistrate and idiosyncratic historian of religions.godfrey higgins
Felony stands on a very different ground from misdemeanour; and the assertion that a misdemeanour can be tried in that County alone wherein any part of it was committed, appears to me to have been built upon a mistake of the true ground and reason of the doctrine in felony.
The true ground of the doctrine in felony is this: if a felony be compounded of two distinct acts, one of which takes place in one County and the other in another County, the concurrence of both being necessary to constitute the felony, the party may not be triable in either, because, ex hypothesi, there is no felony committed in either.
Truly I think it one of the most reasonable laws in the world, that a man be tried by his County, by the neighbourhood:;; and it has given ground to a good English proverb: "He that has an ill-name, is half hanged."* A man's repute among his neighbours goes a great way in this matter, when his neighbours shall say they never knew ill by him.

Anarchism is not a romantic fable but the hardheaded realization, based on five thousand years of experience, that we cannot entrust the management of our lives to kings, priests, politicians, generals, and County commissioners.
My fortune in cricket was to play when the first-class game was free and fast-flowing and with a County as concerned to play attractive and sporting cricket as to win.
