Famous quotes containing the words bristol and/or county:

    Through the port comes the moon-shine astray!
    It tips the guard’s cutlass and silvers this nook;
    But ‘twill die in the dawning of Billy’s last day.
    A jewel-block they’ll make of me to-morrow,
    Pendant pearl from the yard-arm-end
    Like the ear-drop I gave to Bristol Molly—
    O, ‘tis me, not the sentence they’ll suspend.
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)

    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)
