Famous quotes containing the words tension and/or racial:

    The prevalence of suicide, without doubt, is a test of height in civilization; it means that the population is winding up its nervous and intellectual system to the utmost point of tension and that sometimes it snaps.
    Havelock Ellis (1859–1939)

    Kenneth MacKenzie Clark (20th century)
