Land Races

Famous quotes containing the words land and/or races:

    We come and go, but the land is always here. And the people who love it and understand it are the people who own it—for a little while.
    Willa Cather (1873–1947)

    I am obliged to confess that I do not regard the abolition of slavery as a means of warding off the struggle of the two races in the Southern states. The Negroes may long remain slaves without complaining; but if they are once raised to the level of freemen, they will soon revolt at being deprived of almost all their civil rights; and as they cannot become the equals of the whites, they will speedily show themselves as enemies.
    Alexis de Tocqueville (1805–1859)
