How to use column in a sentence?

  1. New York Rep. Steve Israel:

    The details deserve and must get a vote by the U.S. Congress, until the full details are provided to Congress on June 30th, you can keep me in the 'highly skeptical' column.

  2. Polly Fry:

    Finding out at the age of 45 that the man I had idolized and put on a pedestal higher than Nelson’s Column since I was a small child was not in fact my father was a hard burden to bear.

  3. Feltham:

    It was a false maxim of Domitian that he who would gain the people of Rome must promise all things and perform nothing. For when a man is known to be false in his word, instead of a column, which he might be by keeping it, for others to rest upon, he becomes a reed, which no man will vouchsafe to lean upon. Like a floating island, when we come next day to seek it, it is carried from the place we left it in, and, instead of earth to build upon, we find nothing but inconstant and deceiving waves.

  4. Catherine Deneuve:

    I‘m a free woman and always will be, i send my sisterly regards to all the victims of abject acts who would have felt attacked by this column inLe Monde, and it is to them, and them only, that I offer my apologies.

  5. Robertson Davies:

    He types his labored column -- weary drudge! Senile fudge and solemn: spare, editor, to condemn these dry leaves of his autumn.
