Horse Quotes

Will Rogers

W.C. Fields

There is no secret so close as that between a rider and his horse.

Robert Smith Surtees

When the boys come into my yard for leave to gather horse-chestnuts, I own I enter into nature's game, and affect to grant the permission reluctantly, fearing that any moment they will find out the imposture of that showy chaff. But this tenderness is quite unnecessary; the enchantments are laid on very thick. Their young life is thatched with them. Bare and grim to tears is the lot of the children in the hovel I saw yesterday; yet not the less they hang it round with frippery romance, like the children of the happiest fortune.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Wilfrid Scawen Blunt

He'd undertake to prove, by force Of argument, a man's no horse. He'd prove a buzzard is no fowl, And that a Lord may be an owl, A calf an Alderman, a goose a Justice, And rooks, Committee-men or Trustees.

Samuel Butler

In buying a horse or taking a wife, shut your eyes tight and commend yourself to God.

Tuscan Proverb

A horse is worth more than riches.

Spanish Proverb

No horse gets anywhere until he is harnessed. No stream or gas drives anything until it is confined. No Niagara is ever turned into light and power until it is tunneled. No life ever grows great until it is focused, dedicated, disciplined.
