Famous quotes containing the word rider:

    A little neglect may breed mischief ... for want of a nail, the shoe was lost; for want of a shoe the horse was lost; and for want of a horse the rider was lost.
    Benjamin Franklin (1706–1790)

    Came to Ajanta cave, the painted space of the breast,
    the real world where everything is complete,
    there are no shadows, the forms of incompleteness,
    The great cloak blows in the light, rider and horse arrive,
    the shoulders turn and every gift is made.
    Muriel Rukeyser (1913–1980)

    I sit astride life like a bad rider on a horse. I only owe it to the horse’s good nature that I am not thrown off at this very moment.
    Ludwig Wittgenstein (1889–1951)
