Ah, steeds, steeds, what steeds! Has the whirlwind a home in
your manes? Is there a sensitive ear, alert as a flame, in your
every fiber? Hearing the familiar song from above, all in one

the ground, turn into straight lines cleaving the air, and all
inspired by God it rushes on!
Nikolai V. Gogol

Among all the sights of the docks, the noble truck-horses are
not the least striking to a stranger. They are large and powerful
brutes, with such sleek and glossy coats, that they look as
if brushed and put on by a valet every morning. They march with
a slow and stately step, lifting their ponderous hoofs like
royal Siam elephants. Thou shalt not lay stripes upon these
Roman citizens; for their docility is such, they are guided
without rein or lash; they go or come, halt or march on, at
a whisper. So grave, dignified, gentlemanly, and courteous did
these fine truck-horses look - so full of calm intelligence
and sagacity, that often I endeavored to get into conversation
with them, as they stood in contemplative attitudes while their
loads were preparing. But all I could get from them was the
mere recognition of a friendly neigh; though I would stake much
upon it that, could I have spoken in their language, I would
have derived from them a good deal of valuable information touching
the docks, where they passed the whole of their dignified lives.
Redburn: His First Voyage.
A horse is worth more than riches.
When you're young and you fall off a horse, you may break something.

The ass will carry his load, but not a double load; ride not
a free horse to death.
Miguel de Cervantes
There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have
most of it.
