Quotes by Monty Roberts

"If you act like you've only got fifteen minutes, it will take all day. Act like you've got all day, it will take fifteen minutes."

"I had been riding horses before my memory kicked in, so my life with horses had no beginning. It simply appeared from the fog of infancy. I survived a difficult childhood by traveling on the backs of horses, and in adulthood the pattern didn't change."

"No being has the right to say to another, "Do this, or I will hurt you"."
