Famous quotes containing the word race:

    Spring, of all seasons most gratuitous,
    Is fold of untaught flower, is race of water,
    Is earth’s most multiple, excited daughter;
    And those she has least use for see her best,
    Their paths grown craven and circuitous,
    Their visions mountain-clear, their needs immodest.
    Philip Larkin (1922–1986)
