Famous quotes containing the word elect:

    I feel very proud, even though they didn’t elect me, to be President of the Argentines.
    Leopoldo Fortunato, General Galtieri (b. 1927)

    Some, it seems to me, elect their rulers for their crookedness. But I think that a straight stick makes the best cane, and an upright man the best ruler.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    It is too late—the world is too dark for any thought ahead. Others are writing my biography, and let it rest as they elect to make it. I have lived my life, well and ill, always less well than I wanted it to be but it is, as it is, and as it has been; so small a thing, to have had so much about it!
    Clara Barton (1821–1912)
