Famous quotes containing the words election and/or special:

    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 (1857–1930)

    The English language is nobody’s special property. It is the property of the imagination: it is the property of the language itself.
    Derek Walcott (b. 1930)
