I’ve often said there’s nothing better for the inside of a man than the outside of a horse.
Horses have hoofs to carry them over frost and snow; hair, to protect them from wind and cold. They eat grass and drink water, and fling up their heels…. Such is the real nature of horses.
—Zhuang Zhou (c.369–c.286 BCE) Chinese Taoist Philosopher
A horse is dangerous at both ends and uncomfortable in the middle.
—Ian L. Fleming (1908–64) English Novelist, Journalist, Naval Intelligence Officer
Horse sense is the thing a horse has which keeps it from betting on people.
—W. C. Fields (1880–1946) American Actor, Comedian, Writer
