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)

    We are in a period when old questions are settled and the new are not yet brought forward. Extreme party action, if continued in such a time, would ruin the party. Moderation is its only chance. The party out of power gains by all partisan conduct of those in power.
    Rutherford Birchard Hayes (1822–1893)

    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)
