Horses Quotes

Sourced

  • What a long night is this! I will not change my horse with any that treads but on four pasterns. Ca, ha! He bounds from the earth, as if his entrails were hairs; le cheval volant, the Pegasus, qui a les narines de feu! When I bestride him, I soar, I am a hawk. He trots the air; the earth sings when he touches it; the basest horn of his hoof is more musical than the pipe of Hermes.
    o Dauphin from Henry V, Act III, Scene VII.

  • God forbid that I should go to any Heaven in which there are no horses.
