Famous quotes containing the word reaching:

    Profound as race prejudice is against the Negro American, it is not practically as far- reaching as the prejudice against women. For stripping away the sentimentality which makes Mother’s Day and Best American Mother Contests, the truth is that women suffer all the effects of a minority.
    Pearl S. Buck (1892–1973)

    Our country has deliberately undertaken a great social and economic experiment, noble in motive and far- reaching in purpose.
    Herbert Hoover (1874–1964)

    Not that success, for him, is sure, infallible.
    But never has he been afraid to reach.
    His lesions are legion.
    But reaching is his rule.
    Gwendolyn Brooks (b. 1917)
