Famous quotes containing the words horse and/or galloping:

    TAKE CARE TO SELL YOUR HORSE BEFORE HE DIES
    THE ART OF LIFE IS PASSING LOSSES ON.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    I sprang to the stirrup, and Joris and he;
    I galloped, Dirck galloped, we galloped all three;
    “Good speed!” cried the watch as the gate-bolts undrew,
    “Speed!” echoed the wall to us galloping through.
    Behind shut the postern, the lights sank to rest,
    And into the midnight we galloped abreast.
    Robert Browning (1812–1889)
