Quotes about proclivity


1. I was drawn to horses as if they were magnets. It was in my blood. I must have inherited from my grandfather a genetic proclivity toward the equine species. Perhaps there's a quirk in the DNA that makes horse people different from everyone else, that instantly divides humanity into those who love horses and the others, who simply don't know.
- Allan J. Hamilton, Zen Mind, Zen Horse: The Science and Spirituality of Working with Horses

2. By necessity, by proclivity, and by delight, we all quote.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson
