Famous quotes with Colt

  • A ragged colt may prove a good horse. And so may an untoward slovenly boy prove a decent and useful man.
    James Kelly
  • but a boy's will is his life, and he dies when it is broken, as the colt dies in harness, taking a new nature in becoming tame. Rarely has the boy felt kindly towards his tamers. Between him and his master has always been war. Henry Adams never knew a boy of his generation to like a master, and the task of remaining on friendly terms with one's own family, in such a relation, was never easy.
    Henry Adams
