Horses Quotes

You know horses are smarter than people. You never heard of a horse going broke betting on people.

Will Rogers

Swordsmen thrust through, and dying in their blood on the arena sand; bulls goring horses disembowelled, made a meeker vision for the public a milder condiment for a people's palate than Vashti torn by seven devils: devils which cried sore and rent the tenement they haunted, but still refused to be exorcised.

Charlotte Bront

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

W. C. Fields

One reason why birds and horses are happy is because they are not trying to impress other birds and horses.

Dale Carnegie

As it would be great folly to shoe horses, as Nero did, with gold, so it is to spend time in trifles.

Mules are always boasting that their ancestors were horses.

German proverb

I grew up with an idealized version of the sport, that people do it because they love horses. I guess that's just a romantic illusion.

James Hastie

England is the paradise of women, the purgatory of men, and the hell of horses.

John Florio

Such a fatigue of adjectives, a drone of alliterations, a huffing of hyphenated words hurdling the meter like tired horses. Such a faded upholstery of tears, stars, bells, bones, flood and blood†a thud of consonants in tongue, night, dark, dust, seed, wound and wind.

Anatole Broyard

Vanity costs money, labor, horses, men, women, health and peace, and is still nothing at last,--a long way leading nowhere.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

People on horses look better than they are. People in cars look worse than they are.

When Imam Ali, marching at the head of his army towards Syria, reached Ambar, the landlords of the place came out to meet him in zeal of their love, faithfulness and respect, no sooner had they seen Imam Ali they got down from their horses and started running in front of him. Imam Ali asked the reason of their strange actions. They replied that it was their custom to show their love and respect in that way. Imam Ali replied: "By God, by your action you do no good whatsoever to your rulers but you tire yourself and put yourself in toils in this world and in trouble in the next. How unfortunate is that exertion, which brings harm here and in the Hereafter and how useful is that ease which keeps you in comfort in this world and away from the Hell in the next.

Ali bin Abu-Talib

Hunting, fishing, drawing, and music occupied my every moment; cares I knew not, and cared naught about them. I purchased excellent and beautiful horses, visited all such neighbors as I found congenial spirits, and was as happy as happy could be.

John James Audubon

Come, dear children, let us away; Down and away below. Now my brothers call from the bay; Now the great winds shoreward blow; Now the salt tides seaward flow; Now the wild white horses play, Champ and chafe and toss in the spray. Children dear, let us away. This way, this way!

Matthew Arnold
