Famous quotes containing the words election and/or systems:

    What a glorious time they must have in that wilderness, far from mankind and election day!
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    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.
