Famous quotes containing the words light and/or horse:

    Y’know plenty of people, in their right mind, thought they saw things that didn’t exist, y’know, like flying saucers. The light was just right, and the angle and the imagination. Oh boy, if that’s what it is, then this is just an ordinary night. You and I are going to go home and go to sleep and tomorrow when we get up that sun’s gonna shine. Just like yesterday. Good ol’ yesterday.
    —Theodore Simonson. Irvin S. Yeaworth, Jr.. Steve Andrews (Steven McQueen)

    I on my horse, and Love on me, doth try
    Our horsemanships, while by strange work I prove
    A horseman to my horse, a horse to Love,
    Sir Philip Sidney (1554–1586)
