Famous quotes containing the word appointed:

    The meeting, in spite of my attempt to decline it, appointed me one of the delegates, so that in getting Baker the nomination, I shall be “fixed” a good deal like a fellow who is made groomsman to the man what has cut him out, and is marrying his own dear “gal.”
    Abraham Lincoln (1809–1865)

    No person connected with me by blood or marriage will be appointed to office.
    Rutherford Birchard Hayes (1822–1893)

    In a virtuous government, and more especially in times like these, public offices are, what the should be, burthens to those appointed to them which it would be wrong to decline, though foreseen to bring with them intense labor and great private loss.
    Thomas Jefferson (1743–1826)
