Where in the wide world can man find nobility without pride,

Friendship without envy or beauty without vanity?

Here where grace is laced with muscle, and strength by gentleness confined.

He serves without servility: he has fought without enmity.

There is nothing so powerful, nothing less violent;

There is nothing so quicknothing more patient.

The past has been borne on his back. All our history is his industry:

We are his heirs,he our inheritance.

Ladies & Gentlemen The Horse.
