Famous quotes containing the words regiment, horse and/or light:

    We had an inspection today of the brigade. The Twenty-third was pronounced the crack regiment in appearance, ... [but] I could see only six to ten in a company of the old men. They all smiled as I rode by. But as I passed away I couldn’t help dropping a few natural tears. I felt as I did when I saw them mustered in at Camp Chase.
    Rutherford Birchard Hayes (1822–1893)

    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)

    People have passed through a very dark tunnel at the end of which there was a light of freedom. Unexpectedly they passed through the prison gates and found themselves in a square. They are now free and they don’t know where to go.
    Václav Havel (b. 1936)
