Horses

Famous quotes containing the word horses:

    mouth to mouth, the covers
    pulled over our shoulders
    we drowse as horses drowse afield,
    in accord; though the fall cold
    surrounds our warm bed, and though
    by day we are singular and often lonely.
    Denise Levertov (b. 1923)

    The Volga flows into the Caspian Sea.... Horses eat oats and hay....
    Anton Pavlovich Chekhov (1860–1904)

    The poet alone knows astronomy, chemistry, vegetation, and animation, for he does not stop at these facts, but employs them as signs. He knows why the plain, or meadow of space, was strewn with these flowers we call suns, and moons, and stars; why the great deep is adorned with animals, with men, and gods; for, in every word he speaks he rides on them as the horses of thought.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
