LATEST THOUGHTS

Xenophon.

I guess beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and those that force their horses to conform will never see the true grace, strength and courage of their horses.

 

 These are a couple of my favourite Xenophon sayings. 

 

‘Never should you treat your horse in anger, for there is something blind in anger which makes us commit actions that will later be regretted.’

 

‘Anything forced or misunderstood can never be beautiful. If a dancer were forced to dance by whips and spurs, he would be no more beautiful than a horse trained under similar conditions.

 

 

And from Kahlil Gibran, author of the Prophet

 

Man struggles to find life outside himself unaware that the life he is seeking is within him.

 

Love is the only freedom in the world because it so elevates the spirit that the laws of humanity and the phenomena  of nature do not alter its course.

 

Do not be merciful, but be just, for mercy is bestowed upon the guilty criminal, while justice is all that an innocent man requires.

Strange that we all defend our wrongs with more vigour than we do our rights.
