Famous quotes containing the word rider:

    The sun that leaps on petals through a nought,
    The come a-cropper rider of the flower.
    Dylan Thomas (1914–1953)

    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)

    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)
