Famous quotes containing the words united states, states and/or united:

    I have ever deemed it fundamental for the United States never to take active part in the quarrels of Europe. Their political interests are entirely distinct from ours. Their mutual jealousies, their balance of power, their complicated alliances, their forms and principles of government, are all foreign to us. They are nations of eternal war.
    Thomas Jefferson (1743–1826)

    Colonel [John Charles] Fremont. Not a good picture, but will do to indicate my politics this year. For free States and against new slave States.
    Rutherford Birchard Hayes (1822–1893)

    Toil and pleasure, dissimilar in nature, are nevertheless united by a certain natural bond.
    Titus Livius (Livy)
