Horse Quotes

The wind of heaven is that which blows between a horse's ears.

Arabian Proverb

Horse sense is the thing a horse has which keeps it from betting on people.

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

The great majority of men, especially in France, both desire and possess a fashionable woman, much in the way one might own a fine horse -- as a LUXURY befitting a young man.

Andr Breton

Animals do not admire each other. A horse does not admire its companion.

Blaise Pascal

I knew the Spring was come. I knew it even Better than all by this, that through my chase In bush and stone and hill and sea and heaven I seem'd to see and follow still your face. Your face my quarry was. For it I rode, My horse a thing of wings, myself a god.

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

Horse sense is a good judgement which keeps horses from betting on people.

W. C. Fields

Some people regard private enterprise as a predatory tiger to be shot. Others look on it as a cow they can milk. Not enough people see it as a healthy horse, pulling a sturdy wagon.

Winston Churchill

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.

Harry Emerson Fosdick

“No man, not even a doctor, ever gives any other definition of what a nurse should be than this - 'devoted and obedient'. This definition would do just as well for a porter. It might even do for a horse. It would not do for a policeman

Florence Nightingale
