„Já myslím, že "navždycky" není nic víc než tohle. Prostě dlouhá šňůra samých "teď". A taky myslím, že nám nezbývá nic jinýho než se snažit žít naplno vždycky jenom jedno "teď" a nelámat si zbytečně hlavu ani s tím minulým "teď", ani s příštím.“ z knihy Zaříkávač koní

„I guess that’s all forever is... Just one long trail of nows. And I guess all you can do is try and live one now at a time without getting too worked up about the last now or the next now.“ The Horse Whisperer


„Sometimes what seems like surrender isn't surrender at all. It's about what's going on in our hearts. About seeing clearly the way life is and accepting it and being true to it, whatever the pain, because the pain of not being true to it is far, far greater.“

„The imporant things in life never happened by accident. But even with those things that were meant to be, sometimes you had to wait awhile and then maybe give them a little nudge.“

„She had seemed to need something from him that he hadn’t been able to give... at last he realized that what she had needed from him was need itself. That he should need her as she needed him.“ The Horse Whisperer

„It was in America that horses first roamed. A million years before the birth of man, they grazed the vast plains of wiry grass and crossed to other continents over bridges of rock soon severed by retreating ice. They first knew man as the hunted knows the hunter, for long before he saw them as a means to killing other beasts, man killed them for their meat.

Paintings on the walls of caves showed how. Lions and bears would turn and fight and that was the moment men speared them. But the horse was a creature of flight not fight and, with a simple deadly logic, the hunter used flight to destroy it. Whole herds were driven hurtling headlong to their deaths from the tops of cliffs. Deposits of their broken bones bore testimony. And though later he came pretending friendship, the alliance with man would ever be but fragile, for the fear he'd struck into their hearts was too deep to be dislodged.

Since that neolithic moment when first a horse was haltered, there were those among men who understood this.

They could see into the creature's soul and soothe the wounds they found there. Often they were seen as witches and perhaps they were. Some wrought their magic with the bleached bones of toads, plucked from moonlit streams. Others, it was said, could with but a glance root the hooves of a working team to the earth they plowed. There were gypsies and showmen, shamans and charlatans. And those who truly had the gift were wont to guard it wisely, for it was said that he who drove the devil out, might also drive him in. The owner of a horse you calmed might shake your hand then dance around the flames while they burned you in the village square.

For secrets uttered softly into pricked and troubles ears, these men were known as Whisperers.“
The Horse Whisperer

„I am not gone but merely walk within you.“ The Smoke Jumper

„I absolutely think that happiness is a choice. One of the most potent forces in human psychology is the power of habit. Do something, think something, often enough and it will become the only thing you can do or think. Choose to be unhappy and soon that’s all you will be. Live in a swamp and you’ll grow webbed feet.“


„Knowing is the easy part; saying it out loud is the hard part.“ The Horse Whisperer

„Look after each other. As a couple. When you have kids, you'll want to put them first. Don't. Marriage is like a plant. To keep it alive you've got to water it and feed it. If you don't, when the kids are gone, you'll look in the corner and it'll be dead.“ The Divide

„But you see Annie, where there's pain, there's still feeling and where there's feeling, there's hope.“ The Horse Whisperer

„It's a lot like nuts and bolts - if the rider's nuts, the horse bolts!“


„No man may earn his heart's desire, lest first he brave the smoke and fire“ The Smoke Jumper

„The important things in life never happened by accident. But even with those things that were meant to be, sometimes you had to wait awhile and then maybe give them a little nudge.“ The Smoke Jumper

„Her only shame was that she felt none.“ The Horse Whisperer

„I guess that's all forever is. Just one big long trail of nows. And I guess all you can do is try and live one now at a time without getting too worked up about the last now or the next now.“ The Horse Whisperer
