Jew

Famous quotes containing the word jew:

    Being a Jew is like walking in the wind or swimming: you are touched at all points and conscious everywhere.
    Lionel Trilling (1905–1975)

    The Jew is neither a newcomer nor an alien in this country or on this continent; his Americanism is as original and ancient as that of any race or people with the exception of the American Indian and other aborigines. He came in the caravels of Columbus, and he knocked at the gates of New Amsterdam only thirty-five years after the Pilgrim Fathers stepped ashore on Plymouth Rock.
    Oscar Solomon Straus (1850–1926)

    From the outset, the Christian was the theorizing Jew, the Jew is therefore the practical
    Christian, and the practical Christian has become a Jew again.
    Karl Marx (1818–1883)
