The Quotable Horse Lover gathers the most memorable quotes about horses ever written, recorded, or brought down through the ages.Horses bring out the best in our kind; they inspire adoration and compassion. They have served as both muse and catharsis for artists and writers of all centuries and genres. Horses illuminate the prose of literary giants - from Homer and Aesop to Steinbeck and Yeats and in sources that range from the Bible and Dante's Inferno to West with the Night, references to horses abound. In The Quotable Horse Lover, humorous remarks from the likes of Groucho Marx and Henny Youngman share the pages with valuable wisdom on training and horsemanship from widely honored trainers, past and present. What living creature is the most noble of all, and has spurred on great minds throughout history - from Shakespeare to Winston Churchill? All hippophiles know the answer. It is the horse, of course.For all those in love with this magnificent beast, The Quotable Horse Lover will reside close to the heart and never far form hand. (5 7/8 X 6 7/8, 404 pages, illustrations)
