Election Time quotes by Walter Cronkite
#1. We're an ignorant nation right now. We're not really capable, I do not think, the majority of our people, of making the decisions that have to be made at election time and particularly in the selection of their legislatures and their Congress and the presidency, of course. I don't think we're bright enough to do the job that would preserve our democracy, our republic. I think we're in serious danger. #Quote by Walter Cronkite
Election Time quotes by Gore Vidal
#2. As societies grow decadent, the language grows decadent, too. Words are used to disguise, not to illuminate, action: you liberate a city by destroying it. Words are to confuse, so that at election time people will solemnly vote against their own interests. #Quote by Gore Vidal
Election Time quotes by James Baldwin
#3. Our people" have functioned in this country for nearly a century as political weapons, the trump card up the enemies' sleeve; anything promised Negroes at election time is also a threat leveled at the opposition; in the struggle for mastery the Negro is the pawn. #Quote by James Baldwin
Election Time quotes by Ken Blackwell
#4. The effort of Reince Priebus and the RNC to reach out to movement conservatives has been impressive and will, I believe pay great dividends come election time #Quote by Ken Blackwell
Election Time quotes by Bruce Bueno De Mesquita
#5. Lee Kuan Yew ruled Singapore from 1959 until 1990, making him, we believe, the longest serving prime minister anywhere. His party, the People's Action Party (PAP), dominated elections and that dominance was reinforced by the allocation of public housing, upon which most people in Singapore rely. Neighborhoods that fail to deliver PAP votes come election time found the provision and maintenance of housing cut off.18 In Zimbabwe, Robert Mugabe went one step further. In an operation called Murambatsvina (Operation Drive Out the Rubbish), he used bulldozers to demolish the houses and markets in neighborhoods that failed to support him in the 2005 election. #Quote by Bruce Bueno De Mesquita
Election Time quotes by Jeanette Winterson
#6. Like most people I lived for a long time with my mother and father. My father liked to watch the wrestling, my mother liked to wrestle; it didn't matter what. She was in the white corner and that was that.
She hung out the largest sheets on the windiest days. She wanted the Mormons to knock on the door. At election time in a Labour mill town she put a picture of the Conservative candidate in the window.
She had never heard of mixed feelings. There were friends and there were enemies.

Enemies were:
The Devil (in his many forms)
Next Door
Sex (in its many forms)

Friends were:
Our dog
Auntie Madge
The Novels of Charlotte Bronte
Slug pellets
and me, at first. #Quote by Jeanette Winterson
Election Time quotes by Jerry A. Coyne
#7. But the real reasons why scientists promote accommodationism are more self-serving. To a large extent, American scientists depend for their support on the American public, which is largely religious, and on the U.S. Congress, which is equally religious. (It's a given that it's nearly impossible for an open atheist to be elected to Congress, and at election time candidates vie with one another to parade their religious belief.) Most researchers are supported by federal grants from agencies like the National Science Foundation and the National Institutes of Health, whose budgets are set annually by Congress. To a working scientist, such grants are a lifeline, for research is expensive, and if you don't do it you could lose tenure, promotions, or raises. Any claim that science is somehow in conflict with religion might lead to cuts in the science budget, or so scientists believe, thus endangering their professional welfare. #Quote by Jerry A. Coyne
Election Time quotes by Evan Esar
#8. Communism is a form of government under which every citizen at election time enjoys the privilege of voting Yes. #Quote by Evan Esar
Election Time quotes by Barbara Neely
#9. In this town, white politicians and black ministers seemed to go together like tears and tissues. At election time, the pols got religion and came looking for the blessings of black ministers as a way to get black votes without providing the kinds of services to black communities that they at least promised to East Boston and Charlestown and the other mostly white Boston neighborhoods. #Quote by Barbara Neely
Election Time quotes by Malcolm X
#10. Any time you throw your weight behind a political party that controls two thirds of the government and that party can't keep the promise that it made to you during election time and you're dumb enough to walk around continuing to identify yourself with that party, you're not only a chump but you're a traitor to your race. #Quote by Malcolm X
Election Time quotes by Whoopi Goldberg
#11. You know what? I think the American people are a little pissed, and I think they're pissed at both parties - I think they're really pissed at both parties - and it will be reflected during election time ... #Quote by Whoopi Goldberg
Election Time quotes by Lee Kuan Yew
#12. Most libels, and I have taken about 30 actions, take place at election time. It has not stuck because I am prepared to go before a court, stand in the witness box and face the most aggressive of lawyers who can cross-examine me on my personal history. #Quote by Lee Kuan Yew
Election Time quotes by Stan Freberg
#13. A lot of television stuff is mean-spirited, and I think that's how political advertising got so mean-spirited, to where people are throwing things at the television set every time we have an election. #Quote by Stan Freberg
Election Time quotes by Alex Callinicos
#14. Elections are supposed to be political occasions. In fact the opposite is true. The last thing politicians want to talk about at election-time is politics. What they want to talk about is votes. And the less you talk about politics, the more votes you're likely to win - otherwise you might offend someone. #Quote by Alex Callinicos
Election Time quotes by Matt Gonzalez
#15. It just seemed the timing of it was a little bit of pandering to the public at a time of an election. #Quote by Matt Gonzalez
Election Time quotes by Tony Campolo
#16. In the past, the Republican Party has depended on unified support at election time from Evangelical Christians. But times are changing! #Quote by Tony Campolo
Election Time quotes by Mark Twain
#17. Principles aren't of much account anyway, except at election time. After that you hang them up to let them season. #Quote by Mark Twain
Election Time quotes by Stephen Reinhardt
#18. I can't think of any decision where the entire Congress immediately rushes to condemn a decision by the court. It's getting to be election time and this gives everyone in Congress a chance to prove they are patriotic. #Quote by Stephen Reinhardt
Election Time quotes by Carlos Castaneda
#19. There are lots of things a warrior can do at a certain time which he couldn't do years before. Those things themselves did not change; what changed was his idea of himself. #Quote by Carlos Castaneda
Election Time quotes by Edmond Manning
#20. Breath, Perry. Let the air become you, and then leave you. Forgive each breath because although it abandons you, every single time, it is also brings you life. A man who cannot forgive the air has no chance of living. (Vin) #Quote by Edmond Manning
Election Time quotes by Jennifer Brown
#21. At one time it really felt like forever might happen for us. #Quote by Jennifer Brown
Election Time quotes by John McEnroe
#22. But these guys learn so fast now, they sort of soak up the information, they're fearless. Those are the guys who learn from their mistakes and come back strong the next time. #Quote by John McEnroe
Election Time quotes by Earl Reum
#23. Once on yellow sheet of paper with green lines, he wrote a poem
and he called it "Spot"
because that was the name of his dog and that's what it was all about
and his teacher gave him an "A" and a big gold star
and his mother hung it on the kitchen cupboard and showed it to his aunt
and that was the year his sister was born-and his parents kissed all the time
and the little girl around the corner sent him a postcard with a row of X's on it
and his father tucked him into bed at night and was always there.

Then on a white sheet of paper with blue lines, he wrote another poem
and he called it "Autumn"
because that was the time of year and that's what it was all about
and his teacher gave him an "A" and told him to write more clearly
and his mother told him not to hang it on the kitchen cupboard because it left marks
and that was the year his sister got glasses and his parents never kissed anymore
and the little girl around the corner laughed when he fell down with his bike
and his father didn't tuck him in at night.

So, on another piece of paper torn from a notebook he wrote another poem
and he called it "Absolutely Nothing"
Because that's what it was all about
and his teach gave him an "A" and a hard searching look
and he didn't show it to his mother
and that was the year he caught his sister necking on the back porch
and the little girl around the corner wor #Quote by Earl Reum
Election Time quotes by Jill Scott
#24. I've done a lot of fighting in my time, and I'm down to do some more. I don't want to, but you know, there's just certain things that you can't sit down and take. #Quote by Jill Scott
Election Time quotes by Billy Graham
#25. We can't go on much longer morally. We can't go on much longer scientifically. The technology that was supposed to save us is ready to destroy us. New weapons are being made all the time, including chemical and biological weapons. Today the only bright spot on the horizon of this world is the promise of the coming again of Christ. #Quote by Billy Graham
Election Time quotes by Amir Taheri
#26. It is time we learnt that a terrorist is no man's friend and everyman's enemy. #Quote by Amir Taheri
Election Time quotes by J.D. Robb
#27. Would you want to rule the world?" Eve asked Roarke. "Or even the country?"

"Good God, no. Too much work for too little remuneration, and very little time left over to enjoy your kingdom." He glanced over. "I much prefer owning as much of the world as humanly possible. But running it? No thanks. #Quote by J.D. Robb
Election Time quotes by Edgar Wilson Nye
#28. Many people have traveled all their lives and yet do not know how to behave themselves when on the road ... Ladies and gentlemen should guard against traveling by rail while in a beastly state of intoxication ... the morning is a good time to find out how many people have succeeded in getting on the passenger train, who ought to be in the stock car. #Quote by Edgar Wilson Nye
Election Time quotes by Peter Tork
#29. What I remember most are some of the guys in the background - who they were and what kind of times we had during those days on the set. I remember staying at Mikes house in Hollywood when we first started filming the series. It was the upper story of a two-story building on a little hillside. Mikes wife, Phyllis, was wonderful. Mike and I laughed a lot and played music together. I remember that time very fondly. #Quote by Peter Tork
Election Time quotes by Richelle E. Goodrich
#30. The greatest gift you can give is your time. Not money, not items, not food, not pretty cards with handwritten sentiment, but time. People need your presence. The way you can help a soul the most is to simply be there. #Quote by Richelle E. Goodrich
Election Time quotes by Milan Kundera
#31. We are born one time only, we can never start a new life equipped with the experience we've gained from the previous one. We leave childhood without knowing what youth is, we marry without knowing what it is to be married, and even when we enter old age, we don't know what it is we're heading for: the old are innocent children innocent of thier old age. In that sense, man's world is the planet of inexperience. #Quote by Milan Kundera
Election Time quotes by William Gurnall
#32. Too many read a chapter or two in the Bible, then for lack of interest put it down for weeks at a time and never look at it. Bernard compares the study of the Word and the mere reading of it to the difference between a close friendship and a casual acquaintance. If you want genuine knowledge, he says, you will have to do more than greet the Word politely on Sundays or nod reverently when you chance to meet it on the street. You must walk with it and talk with it every day of the week. You must invite it into your private chambers, and forego other pleasures and worldly duties to spent time in its company. #Quote by William Gurnall
Election Time quotes by Alan Ball
#33. And as I stumbled onto Eastern philosophy and Buddhism, it was the first time I had ever read any sort of philosophy that really made a tremendous amount of sense. What I liked that was missing from my experience of Christianity growing up was a sort of acceptance, a sort of being OK with being imperfect and not focusing on the sin. #Quote by Alan Ball
Election Time quotes by Camilla Belle
#34. When I was younger, I had no interest. But after I went to Paris to see the collections for the first time a few years ago, they made a huge impression on me. I realized that fashion is an art form, like acting or painting. #Quote by Camilla Belle
Election Time quotes by Charles Duhigg
#35. Since cowardice must occur at a time and place where an enemy either has already appeared or may yet turn up, servicemen in peacetime - and ordinary civilians - can breathe a sigh of relief. If you are yellow-bellied back home, you're not technically a coward. #Quote by Charles Duhigg
Election Time quotes by Gina McKee
#36. The first time I came to London on my own, I was 15. I was absolutely oblivious to so many things. I had no expectations, no fears. I just came to do a National Youth Theatre season one summer. It was just brilliant. #Quote by Gina McKee
Election Time quotes by Alain De Botton
#37. The word "snobbery" came into use for the first time in England during 1820s. It was said to have derived from the habit of many Oxford and Cambridge colleges of writing sine nobilitate (without nobility) , or "s.nob", next to the names of the ordinary students on examinations lists in order to distinguish them from their aristocratic peers. In the word's earliest days, a snob was taken to mean someone without high status, but it quickly assumed its modern and almost diametrically opposed meaning: someone offended by a lack of high status in others, a person who believes in a flawless equations between social rank and human worth #Quote by Alain De Botton
Election Time quotes by Sally Ride
#38. Well, we spend an awful lot of our time working and doing experiments. It's very busy up on the shuttle. #Quote by Sally Ride
Election Time quotes by Rupert Giles
#39. From time to time, I am asked
by people with an alarming lack of tact
why a man like myself, who has demonstrated an affinity for working with children, has none of his own. Other people's children are quite enough, thank you. #Quote by Rupert Giles
Election Time quotes by Henry Austin Dobson
#40. Old books, old wine, old Nankin blue;-
All things, in short, to which belong
The charm, the grace that Time
makes strong,
All these I prize, but (entre nous)
Old friends are best! #Quote by Henry Austin Dobson
Election Time quotes by Tadanobu Asano
#41. Because I feel 'Thor' is the beginning of finding my roots, and I found that I have family in America, I want to take my time and put effort on my future work so that foreign people get to know me better, and I also want to enjoy that process itself! #Quote by Tadanobu Asano
Election Time quotes by Elizabeth Goudge
#42. Fairyland ... Paradise ... In this place and at this time, Marguerite could know that the one was a parable of the other and both were synonyms for something that had no name. #Quote by Elizabeth Goudge
Election Time quotes by Bill Nighy
#43. With stage, you feel completely like you're just in a bubble. I love not being able to see anything. I love coming out and I can't see anything because the lights are so bright and it's pitch black. That's ideal for me, that's when I have the best time. #Quote by Bill Nighy
Election Time quotes by Ravi Zacharias
#44. Every time you get on your knees and pray to God, 'Holy' keeps the respect and reverence while 'Father' brings Him close & intimate. #Quote by Ravi Zacharias
Election Time quotes by Irwin Shaw
#45. It had been off-hand and flattering, in exactly the proper proportions, and Louise had cleverly erected a thin shield of something that was less than and better than love to protect him from the comic, unending abuse of the Army. And, now, it was probably over. Women, Michael thought resentfully, can never learn the art of being transients. They are all permanent settlers at heart, making homes with dull, instinctive persistence in floods and wars, on the edges of invasions, at the moment of the crumbling of states. No, he thought, I will not have it. For my own protection I am going to get through this time alone ... #Quote by Irwin Shaw
Election Time quotes by Ali-Ollie Woodson
#46. The whole time I was with 'The Temptations', I was accumulating my own solo recordings. #Quote by Ali-Ollie Woodson
Election Time quotes by Martin Seligman
#47. The defining characteristic of pessimists is that they tend to believe that bad events will last a long time, will undermine everything they do, and are their own fault. The optimists, who are confronted with the same hard knocks of this world, think about misfortune in the opposite way. They tend to believe that defeat is just a temporary setback or a challenge, that its causes are just confined to this one case. #Quote by Martin Seligman
Election Time quotes by Shuli Barzilai
#48. As Atwood concludes after a random and informal sampling, men and women differ markedly in the 'scope of their threatenability': 'Why do men feel threatened by woman?' I asked a male friend of mine ... '[M]en are bigger, most of the time ... and they have on the average a lot more money and power.' 'They're afraid women will laugh at them,' he said. 'Undercut their world view.' Then I asked some women students in a quickie poetry seminar I was giving, 'Why do women feel threatened by men?' 'They're afraid of being killed,' they said'. #Quote by Shuli Barzilai
