Settled

Famous quotes containing the word settled:

    I have never believed that war settled anything satisfactorily, but I am not entirely sure that some times there are certain situations in the world such as we have in actuality when a country is worse off when it does not go to war for its principles than if it went to war.
    Eleanor Roosevelt (1884–1962)

    Have we even so much as discovered and settled the shores? Let a man travel on foot along the coast ... and tell me if it looks like a discovered and settled country, and not rather, for the most part, like a desolate island, and No-Man’s Land.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    There is something so settled and stodgy about turning a great romance into next of kin on an emergency room form, and something so soothing and special, too.
    Anna Quindlen (b. 1952)
