Islands

Famous quotes containing the word islands:

    we are so many
    and many within themselves
    travel to far islands but no one
    asks for their story....

    The problem of the twentieth century is the problem of the color-line—the relation of the darker to the lighter races of men in Asia and Africa, in America and the islands of the sea. It was a phase of this problem that caused the Civil War.
    —W.E.B. (William Edward Burghardt)
