Famous quotes containing the word represent:

    It seemed monstrous to our intolerant youth that “poor white folksy” men should have an equal right with gentlemen, born and bred, in deciding who should represent the county in the Legislature and the district in Congress.
    Marion Harland (1830–1922)

    The manifestation of poetry in external life is formal perfection. True sentiment grows within, and art must represent internal phenomena externally.
    Franz Grillparzer (1791–1872)

    The liberal wing of the feminist movement may have improved the lives of its middle- and upper-class constituency—indeed, 1992 was the Year of the White Middle Class Woman—but since the leadership of this faction of the feminist movement has singled out black men as the meta-enemy of women, these women represent one of the most serious threats to black male well-being since the Klan.
    Ishmael Reed (b. 1938)
