Famous quotes containing the words national and/or accolades:

    It is accordance with our determination to refrain from aggression and build up a sentiment and practice among nations more favorable to peace ... that we have incurred the consent of fourteen important nations to the negotiation of a treaty condemning recourse to war, renouncing it as an instrument of national policy.
    Calvin Coolidge (1872–1933)

    When I get all these accolades for being true to myself, I say, “Who else can I be? I can’t be Chris Evert.”
    Martina Navratilova (b. 1956)
