Famous quotes containing the words orange, county, sheriff and/or department:

    A hook shot kisses the rim and
    hangs there, helplessly, but doesn’t drop

    and for once our gangly starting center
    boxes out his man and times his jump

    perfectly, gathering the orange leather
    from the air like a cherished possession
    Edward Hirsch (b. 1950)

    It would astonish if not amuse, the older citizens of your County who twelve years ago knew me a stranger, friendless, uneducated, penniless boy, working on a flat boat—at ten dollars per month to learn that I have been put down here as the candidate of pride, wealth, and aristocratic family distinction.
    Abraham Lincoln (1809–1865)

    The man’s an M.D., like you. He’s entitled to his opinion. Or do you want me to charge him with confusing a country doctor?
    —Robert M. Fresco. Jack Arnold. Sheriff Jack Andrews (Nestor Paiva)

    While the focus in the landscape of Old World cities was commonly government structures, churches, or the residences of rulers, the landscape and the skyline of American cities have boasted their hotels, department stores, office buildings, apartments, and skyscrapers. In this grandeur, Americans have expressed their Booster Pride, their hopes for visitors and new settlers, and customers, for thriving commerce and industry.
    Daniel J. Boorstin (b. 1914)
