Famous quotes containing the word race:

    In nothing was slavery so savage and relentless as in its attempted destruction of the family instincts of the Negro race in America. Individuals, not families; shelters, not homes; herding, not marriages, were the cardinal sins in that system of horrors.
    Fannie Barrier Williams (1855–1944)

    But—if you cannot give us ease—
    Last of the race of them who grieve
    Here leave us to die out with these
    Last of the people who believe!
    Silent, while years engrave the brow;
    Silent—the best are silent now.
    Matthew Arnold (1822–1888)

    Many are engaged in writing books and printing them,
    Many desire to see their names in print,
    Many read nothing but the race reports.
    Much is your reading, but not the Word of GOD....
    —T.S. (Thomas Stearns)
