What is human race?

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

    Everyone wants to be innocent at all costs, even if that means accusing the human race and the heavens.
    Albert Camus (1913–1960)

    When at last in a race a new principle appears, an idea—that conserves it; ideas only save races.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    We all agree now—by “we” I mean intelligent people under sixty—that a work of art is like a rose. A rose is not beautiful because it is like something else. Neither is a work of art. Roses and works of art are beautiful in themselves. Unluckily, the matter does not end there: a rose is the visible result of an infinitude of complicated goings on in the bosom of the earth and in the air above, and similarly a work of art is the product of strange activities in the human mind.
    Clive Bell (1881–1962)
