Famous quotes containing the word race:

    Let me arrest thy thoughts; wonder with me,
    Why plowing, building, ruling and the rest,
    Or most of those arts, whence our lives are blest,
    By cursed Cain’s race invented be,
    And blest Seth vexed us with Astronomie.
    John Donne (c. 1572–1631)

    In the early days of the world, the Almighty said to the first of our race “In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread”; and since then, if we except the light and the air of heaven, no good thing has been, or can be enjoyed by us, without having first cost labour.
    Abraham Lincoln (1809–1865)

    A race horse needs only a touch of the whip; a clever person needs only a hint.
    Chinese proverb.
