„Я не хочу мира, минующего понимание, я хочу понимания, приносящего мир.“

„It is good people who make good places.“ Black Beauty


„If they strain me up tight, why, let 'em look out! I can't bear it, and I won't.“ Black Beauty

„We call them dumb animals, and so they are, for they cannot tell us how they feel, but they do not suffer less because they have no words.“ Black Beauty

„There is no religion without love,
and people may talk as much as
they like about their religion, but
if it does not teach them to be good
and kind to man and beast,
it is all a sham.“
Black Beauty

„Do you know why this world is as bad as it is?... It is because people think only about their own business, and won't trouble themselves to stand up for the oppressed, nor bring the wrong-doers to light... My doctrine is this, that if we see cruelty or wrong that we have the power to stop, and do nothing, we make ourselves sharers in the guilt.“ Black Beauty

„My troubles are all over, and I am at home; and often before I am quite awake, I fancy I am still in the orchard at Birtwick, standing with my friends under the apple trees.“ Black Beauty

„My doctrine is this, that if we see
cruelty or wrong that we have the
power to stop, and do nothing, we
make ourselves sharers in the guilt.“
Black Beauty


„If a thing is right it can be done, and if it is wrong it can be done without; and a good man will find a way.“ Black Beauty

„Only ignorance! only ignorance! how can you talk about only ignorance? Don't you know that it is the worst thing in the world, next to wickedness? -- and which does the most mischief heaven only knows. If people can say, `Oh! I did not know, I did not mean any harm,' they think it is all right.“ Black Beauty

„If you in the morning
Throw minutes away,
You can't pick them up
In the course of a day.
You may hurry and scurry,
And flurry and worry,
You've lost them forever,
Forever and aye.“
Black Beauty

„There is no religion without love, and people may talk as much as they like about their religion, but if it does not teach them to be good and kind to man and beast it is all a sham - all a sham, James, and it won't stand when things come to be turned inside out and put down for what they are.“ Black Beauty


„He said cruelty was the devil's own trade-mark, and if we saw any one who took pleasure in cruelty we might know who he belonged to, for the devil was a murderer from the beginning, and a tormentor to the end. On the other hand, where we saw people who loved their neighbors, and were kind to man and beast, we might know that was God's mark.“ Black Beauty

„Why don't they cut their own children's ears into points to make them look sharp? Why don't they cut off their noses to make them look plucky? One would be just as sensible as the other. What right have they to torment and disfigure God's creatures?“ Black Beauty

„Now I say that with cruelty and oppression it is everybody's business to interfere when they see it." -“

„We shall all have to be judged according to our works, whether they be towards man or towards beast.“ Black Beauty
