Famous quotes containing the word race:

    Seeing their children touched and seared and wounded by race prejudice is one of the heaviest crosses which colored women have to bear.
    Mary Church Terrell (1863–1954)

    They cannot scare me with their empty spaces
    Between stars—on stars where no human race is.
    I have it in me so much nearer home
    To scare myself with my own desert places.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    For now indeed is the race of iron; and men never cease from labour and sorrow by day and from perishing by night.
    Hesiod (c. 8th century B.C.)
