Ten Great Horse Quotes

Ten Great Horse Quotes

Ten of my favorite Wild Horse Quotes by some of our favorite people in history, both living and extinct. 

"Blame it or praise it, there is no denying the wild horse in us." - Virginia Woolf


"Since humans first huddled around campfires, stories have been told of wild horses with wind in their manes, fire in their eyes and freedom in their hearts. Those horses eluded capture, and scorned the comforts of civilization. Americans have insisted they want their wild horses to live that way, forever." - Terri Farley


"If I paint a wild horse, you might not see the horse... but surely you will see the wildness!" - Pablo Picasso "Emotions are wild horses. It is not explanations that carry us forward, but our will to go on." - Paulo Coelho


"With flowing tail and flying mane, Wide nostrils never stretched by pain, Mouth bloodless to bit or rein,
And feet that iron never shod,
And flanks unscar'd by spur or rod,
A thousand horses - the wild - the free -
Like waves that follow o'er the sea,
Came thickly thundering on."
- Lord Byron


"A horse never runs so fast as when he has other horses to catch up and outpace." - Ovid


"I didn't grow up around wild horses, no. But I've appreciated their beauty and their power ever since I can remember." - Ricky Schroder


"When the good times come around, they gallop in like wild horses. You just try to stay on them for as long as you can. And when they throw you off you just wait in the shade until they come around again." - Jimmy Buffett


"Wild horses don't know the burning taste of the whips. Freedom protects us from the many evils!" - Mehmet Murat Ildan


"They watched storms out there so distant they could not be heard, the silent lightning flaring sheetwise and the thin black spine of the mountain chain fluttering and sucked away again in the dark. They saw wild horses racing on the plain, pounding their shadows down the night and- leaving in the moonlight a vaporous dust like the palest stain of their passing." - Cormac McCarthy"
