Famous quotes containing the word setting:

    A fit abode for a poet. Stage setting at least correct.
    Ezra Pound (1885–1972)

    Love is at the root of all healthy discipline. The desire to be loved is a powerful motivation for children to behave in ways that give their parents pleasure rather than displeasure. it may even be our own long-ago fear of losing our parents’ love that now sometimes makes us uneasy about setting and maintaining limits. We’re afraid we’ll lose the love of our children when we don’t let them have their way.
    Fred Rogers (20th century)

    High from the summit of a craggy cliff,
    Hung o’er the deep, such as amazing frowns
    On utmost Kilda’s shore, whose lonely race
    Resign the setting sun to Indian worlds,
    The royal eagle draws his vigorous young
    James Thomson (1700–1748)
