Quarter Horses

Famous quotes containing the words quarter and/or horses:

    The oft-repeated Roman story is written in still legible characters in every quarter of the Old World, and but today, perchance, a new coin is dug up whose inscription repeats and confirms their fame. Some “Jud├Ža Capta,” with a woman mourning under a palm tree, with silent argument and demonstration confirms the pages of history.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    It must be confessed that horses at present work too exclusively for men, rarely men for horses; and the brute degenerates in man’s society.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
