Candidates

Famous quotes containing the word candidates:

    I find that the respectable man, so called, has immediately drifted from his position, and despairs of his country, when his country has more reason to despair of him. He forthwith adopts one of the candidates ... as the only available one, thus proving that he is himself available for any purposes of the demagogue. His vote is of no more worth than that of any unprincipled foreigner or hireling native, who may have been bought.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    The difficulty is no longer to find candidates for the offices, but offices for the candidates.
    Thomas Jefferson (1743–1826)

    Which one of the three candidates would you want your daughter to marry?
    H. Ross Perot (b. 1930)
