Race Runs

Famous quotes containing the words race and/or runs:

    You sang far better than you knew; the songs
    That for your listeners’ hungry hearts sufficed
    Still live,—but more than this to you belongs:
    You sang a race from wood and stone to Christ.
    James Weldon Johnson (1871–1938)

    Some say existence like a Pirouot
    And Pirouette, forever in one place,
    Stands still and dances, but it runs away;
    It seriously, sadly, runs away
    To fill the abyss’s void with emptiness.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)
