What is human race?

Famous quotes containing the words human race, race and/or human:

    And then I know of no better way
    To close a road, abandon a farm,
    Reduce the births of the human race,
    And bring back nature in people’s place.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    Ought we to smile,
    Perhaps make friends? No: in the race for seats
    You’re best alone. Friendship is not worth while.
    Philip Larkin (1922–1986)

    In the very midst of the crowd about this wreck, there were men with carts busily collecting the seaweed which the storm had cast up, and conveying it beyond the reach of the tide, though they were often obliged to separate fragments of clothing from it, and they might at any moment have found a human body under it. Drown who might, they did not forget that this weed was a valuable manure. This shipwreck had not produced a visible vibration in the fabric of society.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
