"We can judge the heart of a man by his treatment of animals."
Immanuel Kant

"Until one has loved an animal, a part of one's soul remains unawakened."
Anatole France

"I call horses 'divine mirrors' - they reflect back the emotions you put in. If you put in love and respect and kindness and curiosity, the horse will return that."
-- Allan Hamilton
