Thoughts for Thursday is a new meme hosted by Musings on Fantasia and LKHill.  In this meme, we share thoughts or quotes that we know or have recently come across. Each week there is a specific subject or theme. These can be quotes from books, quotes by famous people, (quotes by YOU, perhaps ;D). Anything from anywhere is game, though we do ask that you keep your quote to a few sentences at most. Don't quote, for example, entire passages of a book or essay. These can be funny quips, cool sayings, hair-raising antidotes, movie lines, any kind of quote you can think of!

Readers may respond by either commenting on the quote I put forward or contributing a quote of their own. I'll include a linky list, or you can just respond in the comments.

Just have fun, collect awesome sayings by awesome people, and try to be inspired! 

This week's theme is horses! Horses are used in many and varied way in literature. They are a major part of many historical stories, but historical, contemporary, and fantasy authors alike make use of them! They are majestic creatures full of nobility and personality! (Trust me!) :D Here are some horse quotes!

"In riding a horse, we borrow freedom." --Helen Thompson
“When I bestride him, I soar, I am a hawk: he trots the air; the earth sings when he touches it; the basest horn of his hoof is more musical than the pipe of Hermes. ” --Shakespeare
“You’ve gone far away to a place with no horses and very little grass, and you’re studying how to write a story with a happy ending. If you can write that ending for yourself, maybe you can come back.” --Jennifer Echols, Love Story
“The horse, with beauty unsurpassed, strength immeasurable and grace unlike any other, still remains humble enough to carry a man upon his back.” --Amber Senti
“Those who get in the way of love's path will be kicked by horses." --Bisco Hatori, Kyoya

What do you think? How important are horses in our stories? Our history? Our culture? Which quote do you like best?

  1. Now that I think of it, none of my (or our) stories have any horses in them, but that's probably for the best. Most of our novels revolve around the violent destruction of the world, and it's best if we leave these noble creatures out of that whole mess.
