In America, the race goes to the loud, the solemn, the hustler. If you think you're a great writer, you must say that you are.
But for the national welfare, it is urgent to realize that the minorities do think, and think about something other than the race problem.
Zora Neale Hurston
A lot of my life happened in great, wonderful bursts of good fortune, and then I would race to be worthy of it.
War itself is the enemy of the human race.
Class, race, sexuality, gender and all other categories by which we categorize and dismiss each other need to be excavated from the inside.
You're safer in the race car than you are in cars going to and from the track.

Ida B. Wells
With tennis, you can go pick up a racket, take a lesson, and understand how much talent and skill it takes to be as good as the top pros. Same with golf: pick up a club. But not many can go out and get in a race car and experience a drive at over 200 miles an hour.
I love this planet... I want to see the environment preserved and I want to see the human race preserved. And I'd like to see everybody living decently in a more equitable, kind-hearted, thoughtful, generous world.
Poets and heroes are of the same race, the latter do what the former conceive.
Alphonse de Lamartine
When I was a kid, politicians wanted to avoid talking about religion if they could. John F. Kennedy couldn't duck the issue, being Catholic and all. So how did he address it? By reminding Americans that religion shouldn't be an issue, that he was concentrating on big things like poverty and hunger and leading the space race.
From very early on in my childhood - four, five years old - I felt alien to the human race. I felt very comfortable with thinking I was from another planet, because I felt disconnected - I was very tall and skinny, and I didn't look like anybody else, I didn't even look like any member of my family.
My people have a country of their own to go to if they choose...

Baseball is a spirited race of man against man, reflex against reflex. A game of inches. Every skill is measured. Every heroic, every failing is seen and cheered, or booed. And then becomes a statistic.
I never race for records. The motivation to try to beat the record is not enough to continue. You have to enjoy it.
Everybody does good things, but I'm talking about making major changes in the educational system that would impact an entire race. I'm talking about stopping these young gang members from killing one another. I'm talking about keeping prisons from overflowing.
Most people are defined by their titles, their cars, their house, where they came from, their color, their race, their religion. And so it's up to you to take control of your own life and define you. As long as you understand who you are and you have a solid foundation of understanding what your talents are, what your skills are.
I'd always been a news junkie, always read lots of newspapers and watched the Sunday morning news shows on TV and felt strongly about issues of power, control, sexuality and race.

I just tried to keep my cool and continue with my race plan: to win.
I'm not trying to race the whole men's tour; I just want to race one time. If you know me, which most people on the World Cup do, they know that this is a legitimate goal of mine and not a publicity stunt.
