Horses

Famous quotes containing the word horses:

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

    We are like horses who hurt themselves as soon as they pull on their bits—and we bow our heads. We even lose consciousness of the situation, we just submit. Any re-awakening of thought is then painful.
    Simone Weil (1909–1943)

    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)
