„Once there was an old man who lived in a tiny village. Although poor, he was envied by all, for he owned a beautiful white horse.“

—  Max Lucado American clergyman and writer 1955
In the Eye of the Storm (1991), Context: Once there was an old man who lived in a tiny village. Although poor, he was envied by all, for he owned a beautiful white horse. Even the king coveted his treasure. A horse like this had never been seen before — such was its splendor, its majesty, its strength.

„We are told we must choose — the old or the new. In fact, we must choose both. What is a life if not a series of negotiations between the old and the new?“

—  Susan Sontag American writer and filmmaker, professor, and activist 1933 - 2004
Frankfurt Book Fair speech (2003), Context: We are told we must choose — the old or the new. In fact, we must choose both. What is a life if not a series of negotiations between the old and the new? It seems to me that one should always be seeking to talk oneself out of these stark oppositions.

„Only a man harrowing clods
In a slow silent walk
With an old horse that stumbles and nods
Half asleep as they stalk.“

—  Thomas Hardy English novelist and poet 1840 - 1928
Context: p>Only a man harrowing clods In a slow silent walk With an old horse that stumbles and nods Half asleep as they stalk.Only thin smoke without flame From the heaps of couch-grass; Yet this will go onward the same Though Dynasties pass.Yonder a maid and her wight Come whispering by: War's annals will cloud into night Ere their story die.</p " In Time of 'The Breaking Of Nations'" http://www.victorianweb.org/authors/hardy/poems/breaking.html (1915), lines 1-12, from Moments of Vision (1917); the title is derived from lines of Jeremiah 51:20: "Thou art my battle ax and weapons of war: for with thee will I break in pieces the nations."

Sicut fortis equus, spatio qui saepe supremo Vicit Olympia, nunc senio confectus quiescit. As quoted by Cicero in De Senectute, Chapter V (tr. K. Volk)
