“You may be a geek. You may have geek written all over you. You should aim to be the geek they will never forget. Don’t aim to be civilized. Don’t hope that straight people will keep you on as some sort of pet. To hell with them, they put you here. You should realize what society has made of you and take full revenge. Get weird. Get way weird. Get dangerously weird. Get sophisticatedly thoroughly weird and don’t do it half way, put every ounce of your horse power into it. Have the artistic courage to realize your significance in culture.”

 

Bruce Sterling

“Nathan Bedford Forrest … used his horsemen as a modern general would use motorized infantry. He liked horses because he liked fast movement, and his mounted men could get from here to there much faster than any infantry could; but when they reached the field they usually tied their horses to trees and fought on foot, and they were as good as the very best infantry. Not for nothing did Forrest say the essence of strategy was to git thar fust with the most men.”

 

Bruce Catton

“I’ve had quarter horses for the last 18 years.”

Bruce Boxleitner

“Yes, I’ve just bought a new horse, named Jedi.”

Bruce Boxleitner

“I’m named after a horse. My mom’s best friend had a horse named Brooke, so my dad suggested ‘Brooklyn’ as a more formal version, and it just stuck – and now I live in Brooklyn part-time, so go figure.”

Brooklyn Decker

“There’s an old expression about falling off a horse. You get back on and you ride that bad boy into town.”

 

Brock Lesnar

“The people running the business have to be people of good character. They have to have good Internet support. You can’t be struggling to get payments. It has to be properly organized. You can only beat that horse of good and easy money so many times before it eventually dies.”

 

Brian Tracy

“For all his horses, knighthoods and championships, he hasn’t got two of what I’ve got. And I don’t mean balls!”

 

Brian Clough

“It may be broadly stated that…..of all animals kept for the recreation of mankind the horse is alone capable of exciting a passion that shall be absolutely hopeless.”

Bret Harte

“Vin snorted, kneeling in the low tent as she pulled her belt tight; then she crawled over to him. “I don’t know how you read while riding,” she said. “Oh, it’s quite easy – if you aren’t afraid of horses.” “I’m not afraid of them,” Vin said. “They just don’t like me. They know I can outrun them, and that makes them surly.”

Brandon Sanderson

“It was one thing to snuggle a little when the world seemed about to end, and quite another to explain to her parents that she wanted to date an ancient magical horse.”

Brandon Mull

“A gunshot rang out, blasting a hole in the door. A crossbow quarrel zinged through the hole and stuck quivering into the opposite wall. Seth heard the rocking horse clattering down the staircase, the twang of bowstrings, and the overlapping beat of several other projectiles thudding against the door. “That was awesome,” Seth told Kendra. “You’re psychotic,” Kendra replied.”

Brandon Mull

“Suddenly, I became conscious of the fact that the driver was in the act of pulling up the horses in the courtyard of a vast ruined castle, from whose tall black windows came no ray of light, and whose broken battlements showed a jagged line against the sky.”

Bram Stoker

“I have to think that I think it’s always been a horse race between this administration’s temporary political acumen and their completely, utterly, totally bankrupt policies. And they’re coming home to roost. It was always a question of time. These guys aren’t conservative. These guys are radicals.”

 

Bradley Whitford

“I completely fell in love with riding horses. I really didn’t want to wear a helmet when I would go off with the trainer on weekends, galloping through forests and stuff. But thank God he made me, because one time, I was going under a tree and my helmet hit a branch. It literally would have taken my head off.”

 

Bradley Cooper

“The choice or decision to take on a film certainly isn’t calculated as far as doing something that will be successful against something that will have a smaller audience. It’s all a gamble to me, I don’t bet on the horses; I just go with the story that speaks to me and that I feel strongly about which is this one [The Assassination of Jesse James].”

 

Brad Pitt

“I grew up with donkeys, as well as horses, but I’m more interested in donkeys.”

 

Bonnie Jo Campbell

“I was never a big reader as a kid. My imagination wasn’t captured by books very often. It was captured more often by boys and partying and riding horses.”

 

Bonnie Jo Campbell

“When I was little, we lived on 8 acres and my mom had a horse. But when I was 7, my mom kicked my dad out, and then in order to feed us five kids, she got critters cheap or for free and raised them for food. We milked a cow, raised chickens, pigs and beef cattle. We heated our one-story house with wood and stayed cold all winter.”

 

Bonnie Jo Campbell

“To spend our days betting on three-legged horses with beautiful names”
