Famous quotes containing the word platform:
“Across Parker Avenue from the fort is the Site of the Old Gallows, where 83 men stood on nothin, a-lookin up a rope. The platform had a trap wide enought to accommodate 12 men, but half that number was the highest ever reached. On two occasions six miscreants were executed. There were several groups of five, some quartets and trios.”

“Do you know I believe that [William Jennings] Bryan will force his nomination on the Democrats again. I believe he will either do this by advocating Prohibition, or else he will run on a Prohibition platform independent of the Democrats. But you will see that the year before the election he will organize a mammoth lecture tour and will make Prohibition the leading note of every address.”
—William Howard Taft (18571930)
“It was a favor for which to be forever silent to be shown this vision. The earth beneath had become such a flitting thing of lights and shadows as the clouds had been before. It was not merely veiled to me, but it had passed away like the phantom of a shadow, skias onar, and this new platform was gained. As I had climbed above storm and cloud, so by successive days journeys I might reach the region of eternal day, beyond the tapering shadow of the earth.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
