Slow but steady wins the race.
Nationality is the miracle of political independence; race is the principle of physical analogy.
Some day science may have the existence of mankind in power, and the human race can commit suicide by blowing up the world.
Just being a Negro doesn't qualify you to understand the race situation any more than being sick makes you an expert on medicine.
To say 'radical feminist' is only a way of indicating that I believe the sexual caste system is a root of race and class and other divisions.
The different ness of races, moreover, is no evidence of superiority or of inferiority. This merely indicates that each race has certain gifts which the others do not possess.
Carter G. Woodson
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.
The Gita is the greatest gospel of spiritual works ever yet given to the race.
The human animal cannot be trusted for anything good except en masse. The combined thought and action of the whole people of any race, creed or nationality, will always point in the right direction.
Harry S Truman
In order to get beyond racism, we must first take account of race. There is no other way. And in order to treat some persons equally, we must treat them differently.
Harry A. Blackmun
There is only one home to the life of a river-mussel; there is only one home to the life of a tortoise; there is only one shell to the soul of man: there is only one world to the spirit of our race.

Pearl S. Buck
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
The sad part about our past is that religions, ironically enough, are responsible for creating the most destructive idea that has ever been visited upon the human race: the idea that there is such a thing as 'better.'
Neale Donald Walsch
I believe all men, all women, regardless of race, gender, socioeconomic background, you deserve the same rights.
In baseball, democracy shines its clearest. The only race that matters is the race to the bag. The creed is the rule book. And color, merely something to distinguish one team's uniform from another's.
I think there's something wrong with me - I like to win in everything I do, regardless of what it is. You want to race down the street, I want to beat you. If we're playing checkers, I want to win. You beat me, it's going to bother me. I just enjoy competition.
I don't think the Tea Party people are racist, except maybe a tiny portion of them. But there has been a deliberate effort - again, referring to Fox Broadcasting - to inject the race issue into it. They have actually called Obama a racist on television.
I'm the result of upbringing, class, race, gender, social prejudices, and economics. So I'm a victim again. A result.

Always, some great culture is dying to enrich the soil of new harvests, some civlization is crumbling to rubbish to be the hill of a more beautiful city, some race is spending itself that a lower and more barbarous world may inherit its stored treasure house.
George Edward Woodberry
