### Famous quotes containing the words election and/or systems:

“[If not re-elected in 1864] then it will be my duty to so co-operate with the President elect, as to save the Union between the *election* and the inauguration; as he will have secured his *election* on such ground that he can not possibly save it afterwards.”

—Abraham Lincoln (1809–1865)

“The geometry of landscape and situation seems to create its own *systems* of time, the sense of a dynamic element which is cinematising the events of the canvas, translating a posture or ceremony into dynamic terms. The greatest movie of the 20th century is the Mona Lisa, just as the greatest novel is Gray’s Anatomy.”

—J.G. (James Graham)
