Famous quotes containing the words measure, ballot and/or oregon:

    I thought of rhyme alone,
    For rhyme can beat a measure out of trouble
    And make the daylight sweet once more....
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    I do not think the mere extension of the ballot a panacea for all the ills of our national life. What we need to-day is not simply more voters, but better voters.
    Frances Ellen Watkins Harper (1825–1911)

    The Oregon [matter] and the annexation of Texas are now all- important to the security and future peace and prosperity of our union, and I hope there are a sufficient number of pure American democrats to carry into effect the annexation of Texas and [extension of] our laws over Oregon. No temporizing policy or all is lost.
    Andrew Jackson (1767–1845)
