"If you always do what you've always done, you'll always get what you've always gotten."
"Good, better, best. Never let it rest. Get your good better and your better best."
"A mule is just like a horse, but even more so."
"A horse doesn't care how much you know until he knows how much you care."
"If your horse says no, you either asked the wrong question, or asked the question wrong. "
"A horse is like a violin. First it must be tuned. When tuned, they also must be accuartatly played. "
"Ask, Insist, Order."
"Use your head, not your spurs. "

      -All from Pat Parelli

"A stubborn horse walks behind you. An impatient horse walks infront of you, but a noble horse walks with you." 
"A boy is a long time before he knows his alphabet, longer before he has learned to spell, and perhaps several years before he can read distinctly; and yet there are some people who, as soon a they get on a young horse, entirely undressed and untaught, fancy that by beating and spurring they will make him a dressed horse in one morning only. I would fain ask such stupid people whether by beating a boy they would teach him to read without first showing him the alphabet? Sure they would beat him to death before they would make him read."
