View quotes by John Hislop

We allow our ignorance to prevail upon us and make us think we can survive alone, alone in patches, alone in groups, alone in races, even alone in genders.
View quotes by Maya Angelou

The truth is, if old Major Dover hadn't dropped dead at Taunton races Jim would never have come to Thursgood's at all.
View quotes by John Le Carre

I have seen flowers come out in stony places,
And kind things done by men with ugly faces,
And the Gold Cup won by the worst horse at the races.
View quotes by John Masefield

Sunderland are the best side we have played but we weren't at the races today. We did not pass the ball - we could not have found our front two with radar.
View quotes by Joe Royle

The existence of any pure race with special endowments is a myth, as is the belief that there are races all of whose members are foredoomed to eternal inferiority.
View quotes by Franz Boas

America is God's Crucible, the great Melting-Pot where all the races of Europe are melting and reforming.
View quotes by Israel Zangwill

Often people display a curious respect for a man drunk, rather like the respect of simple races for the insane... There is something awe-inspiring in one who has lost all inhibitions.
View quotes by F Scott Fitzgerald

Women do not win formula one races, because they simply are not strong enough to resist the G-forces. In the boardroom, it is different. I believe women are better able to marshal their thoughts than men and because they are less egotistical they make fewer assumptions.
View quotes by Henry Ford

As long as there are entrenched social and political distinctions between sexes, races, or classes, there will be forms of science whose main function is to rationalise and legitimise these distinctions.
View quotes by Elizabeth Fee

I have enjoyed it all and I have some beautiful memories. I raced hard with great champions like Alain, who was my friend. And with Ayrton and Nigel and Michael, of course. We had some great races together and I was always proud to race them. [on retirement]
View quotes by Jean Alesi

Whereas in The Two Towers you have different races, nations, cultures coming together and examining their conscience and unifying against a very real and terrifying enemy. What the United States has been doing for the past year is bombing innocent civilians without having come anywhere close to catching Osama bin Laden or any presumed enemy.
View quotes by Viggo Mortensen

Civilization is a process in the service of Eros, whose purpose is to combine single human individuals, and after that families, then races, peoples and nations, into one great unity, the unity of mankind. Why this has to happen, we do not know; the work of Eros is precisely this.
View quotes by Sigmund Freud

Perhaps the whole root of our trouble, the human trouble, is that we will sacrifice all the beauty of our lives, will imprison ourselves in totems, taboos, crosses, blood sacrifices, steeples, mosques, races, armies, flags, nations, in order to deny the fact of death, which is the only fact we have.

Iíve always had this thing. Iíve always wanted to do Formula One. I did Formula One a couple of races (161 starts). Iíve always wanted to do Le Mans, the 24-hour race, and I won Le Mans (1991, in a Mazda). Then the other one I wanted to do was the Indy 500.

The first reference I can find to this quotation seems to be in 'The St Catharines Standard' (St Cathariens, Ontario, Canada (Osprey Press)) Ocober 13, 2000.

A Canadian politician William Peter Randall was lamenting on the lack of election races and apparent public lack of interest.

He said, 'Acclamation is not democracy, it is apathy'.

You can find more about him in Wikipedia etc.

I have seen the quotation used a few times since then and belive it may be a good addition to your database.


Acclamation is not democracy, it is apathy.

-Willam Peter Randall
Canadian Politician, Quotiation circa 2000
