Europe is usually where I am usually galloping around.
— Joe Cocker

Coffee falls into the stomach ... ideas begin to move, things remembered arrive at full gallop ... the shafts of wit start up like sharp-shooters, similes arise, the paper is covered with ink...
Honore de Balzac gallop quote

— Virginia Woolf

Every event that a man would master must be mounted on the run, and no man ever caught the reins of a thought except as it galloped past him.
— Oliver Wendell Holmes

When he ran from a cop his transitions from accelerating walk to easy jog trot to brisk canter to headlong gallop to flogged-piston sprint...were as distinct and as soberly in order as an automatic gearshift.
