Hold Your Horses! Horsing around is Serious Business

Tucker the Horse 

A Horse of a Different Color

'The imagination is a palette of bright colors. 
You can use it to touch up memories ~ 
or you can use it to paint dreams.' 

Robert Brault

Seahorse Calm

Go Slow to Go Fast

'One of the best pieces of advice I ever got was from a horse master. 
He told me to go slow to go fast. I think that applies to everything in life. 

We live as though there aren't enough hours in the day 
but if we do each thing calmly and carefully 
we will get it done quicker and with much less stress.' 

Viggo Mortensen

Plum Tuckered Out

When Your Mind Rides Faster You Tire Quicker

'When a man's mind rides faster 
than his horse can gallop they both quickly tire.' 

John Webster

The Spirited Horse Encouraged

'The spirited horse, which will try to win the race 
of its own accord, will run even faster if encouraged.' 


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


Flaming Enthusiasm

'Flaming enthusiasm, backed up by horse sense and persistence, 
is the quality that most frequently makes for success.' 

Dale Carnegie

Ride Your Own Horse to the Finish Line

'You have got to decide, look, this is who I am; 
this is my best way to present myself, 
and I'm going to ride that horse to the finish line. 
Not everybody will like it, but that's OK.' 

Phil McGraw


Differences of Opinion Makes a Good Horse Race

'It is not best that we should all think alike; 
it is difference of opinion that makes horse races.' 

Mark Twain

A Weary Old Work Horse Loves Freedom

'A horse loves freedom, 
and the weariest old work horse will roll on the ground 
or break into a lumbering gallop when he is turned loose into the open.'  

Gerald Raferty

If you fall off a horse, you get back up

'It is not enough for a man to know how to ride; he must know how to fall.'  

Mexican Proverb

'I guess all songs is folk songs. I never heard no horse sing 'em.'

Great quotes, Sue. I found the one from Viggo Mortensen surprising and delightful. And it's been a while since I've heard the expression "horse sense," but I've always liked it.

What I love, Jean, is that horse sense is almost a hold-over from days long ago, yet it's still with us in Mortensen's wonderful quote. I'm working on finding my way to cat wisdom for you primary cat lovers (I love cats too).

'There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it.' ~Author Unknown
