„To use a fighter as a fighter-bomber when the strength of the fighter arm is inadequate to achieve air superiority is putting the cart before the horse.“

—  Adolf Galland, The First and the Last (1954), Quoted in "The First and the Last," 1954.

„The most modest and retiring dragon in the world, if he's as big as four cart-horses and covered with blue scales, cannot keep altogether out of the public view.“

—  Kenneth Grahame British novelist 1859 - 1932
Dream Days (1898), The Reluctant Dragon, Context: The most modest and retiring dragon in the world, if he's as big as four cart-horses and covered with blue scales, cannot keep altogether out of the public view. And so in the village tavern of nights the fact that a real live dragon sat brooding in the cave on the Downs was naturally a subject for talk.

„It has always been my temptation to put myself in other people's shoes: even into a horse's shoes as he strains before the heavy dray“

—  Diana Cooper English social figure, actress and memoirist 1892 - 1986
Context: It has always been my temptation to put myself in other people's shoes: even into a horse's shoes as he strains before the heavy dray; into a ballerina's points as she feels age weigh upon her spring; into Cinderella's slippers as she danced till midnight; into the jackboot that kicks; into the Tommy's boots that tramp; into the magic seven-leaguers. With experience of age I have learned to control this habit of sympathy which deforms truth. "Winston and Clementine" http://www.winstonchurchill.org/i4a/pages/index.cfm?pageid=761
