There's always hurdles. So I just keep moving, just constantly redefining myself. That's how you stay in the race.

In spite of the opinions of certain narrow-minded people, who would shut up the human race upon this globe, as within some magic circle it must never outstep, we shall one day travel to the moon, the planets, and the stars, with the same facility, rapidity, and certainty as we now make the voyage from Liverpool to New York!
With each new day in Africa, a gazelle wakes up knowing he must outrun the fastest lion or perish. At the same time, a lion stirs and stretches, knowing he must outrun the fastest gazelle or starve.

Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum

Without question, we need to be informed of the happenings in the world. But modern communication brings into our homes a drowning cascade of the violence and misery of the worldwide human race. There comes a time when we need to find some peaceful spiritual renewal.
James E. Faust
My people have a country of their own to go to if they choose... Africa... but, this America belongs to them just as much as it does to any of the white race... in some ways even more so, because they gave the sweat of their brow and their blood in slavery so that many parts of America could become prosperous and recognized in the world.
A race is a work of art that people can look at and be affected in as many ways they're capable of understanding.
Some day science may have the existence of mankind in power, and the human race can commit suicide by blowing up the world.
It is impossible to win the race unless you venture to run, impossible to win the victory unless you dare to battle.
Richard M. DeVos
Do not ghettoize society by putting people into legal categories of gender, race, ethnicity, language, or other such characteristics.
We must fight as a race for everything that makes for a better country and a better world. We are dreaming idiots and trusting fools to do anything less.
The slogan 'press on' has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.
We are special because we've been united not by a common race or ethnicity. We're bound together by common values. That family is the most important institution in society. That almighty God is the source of all we have.

In spite of the huge diversity in Malaysia in terms of religion, culture, race, ethnicity and so forth, we've really gone very far in developing this country.

Everyone knows I'm black. I am who I am. This is the person that Lester Sr. and June Holt raised, and I make no apology for it. At the same time, I'm never going to pull a race card to get what I want. You can't have it both ways.
Every age has its own poetry; in every age the circumstances of history choose a nation, a race, a class to take up the torch by creating situations that can be expressed or transcended only through poetry.
Why should we not form a secret society with but one object, the furtherance of the British Empire and the bringing of the whole world under British rule, for the recovery of the United States, for making the Anglo Saxon race but one Empire? What a dream, but yet it is probable; it is possible.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
