Do you give the horse his strength or clothe his neck with a flowing mane?

Do you make him leap like a locust, striking terror with his proud snorting?

He paws fiercely, rejoicing in his strength, and charges into the fray.

He laughs at fear, afraid of nothing; he does not shy away from the sword.

The quiver rattles against his side, along with the flashing spear and lance.

In frenzied excitement he eats up the ground; he cannot stand still when the trumpet sounds.

Job 39:19-24 (NIV)

(I watch the most random movies with my dad. This time we watched “Secretariat.” I rather liked this quote featured in the film. Also, my dad is talking to my cat, Tiger. Gizmo is staring at me like I’m a stranger. Of course, I mostly am, at this point.)
