Vote

Famous quotes containing the word vote:

    The freeman, casting with unpurchased hand
    The vote that shakes the turrets of the land.
    Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr. (1809–1894)

    While I shall not vote for the prohibition amendment, I would like to see a good, wholesome expression of temperance sentiment.... Personally I do not resort to force—not even the force of law—to advance moral reforms. I prefer education, argument, persuasion, and above all the influence of example—of fashion.
    Rutherford Birchard Hayes (1822–1893)

    But also the constituency determines the vote of the representative. He is not only representative, but participant. Like can only be known by like. The reason why he knows about them is, that he is of them; he has just come out of nature, or from being a part of the thing.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
