"He was a perfect horseman, and never lost his temper with his horse, talking to and reasoning with it if it shyed or bolted, as if it had been a rational being, knowing that from the fine organisation of the animal, a horse, like a child, will get confused by panic fear, which is only increased by punishment."—From the Life of Charles Kingsley, Vol. II., page 9.

This work was published before January 1, 1923, and is in the public domain worldwide because the author died at least 100 years ago.
