The day may come when the rest of the animal creation may acquire those rights which never could have been witholden from them but by the hand of tyranny.

It is said that as many days as there are in the whole journey, so many are the men and horses that stand along the road, each horse and man at the interval of a day’s journey; and these are stayed neither by snow nor rain nor heat nor darkness from accomplishing their appointed course with all speed.
There is something about jumping a horse over a fence, something that makes you feel good. Perhaps it's the risk, the gamble. In any event it's a thing I need.william faulkner
Neither the planters nor the Colonization Society, seem to ask what right we have to remove people from the places where they have been born and brought up, where they have a home, which, however miserable, is still their home, and where their relatives and acquaintances all reside.
