Let us look beyond the ears of our own horses so that we may see the good in one another's.

Anonymous

When he was young, I told Dale Jr. that hunting and racing are a lot alike. Holding that steering wheel and holding that rifle both mean you better be responsible.

Dale Earnhardt

Racing is a very selfish, self-centred, self-glorifying thing. My wife's life for 14 years was centered around me. It was all about me. It was all for my ego.

Greg LeMond

Since I started in motor racing I've worked with people from all over the world. We are all here to go racing and prejudice will never play any part in that.

Kimi Raikkonen

My biggest weakness as a endurance athlete has been in not drinking enough water after training, thereby racing sometimes while dehydrated.

Bill Rodgers

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.

I've often said there's nothing better for the inside of a man than the outside of a horse.

You don't suffer, kill yourself and take the risks I take just for money. I love bike racing.

Greg LeMond

If someone said to me that you can have three wishes, my first would have been to get into racing, my second to be in Formula 1, my third to drive for Ferrari.

I will drive flat out all the time. I love racing.

Gilles Villeneuve

You might not think that's cricket, and it's not, it's motor racing.

There are three easy ways of losing money - racing is the quickest, women the most pleasant, and farming the most certain.

Lord Amherst

A horse is dangerous at both ends and uncomfortable in the middle.

Ian Fleming

They say Princes learn no art truly, but the art of horsemanship. The reason is, the brave beast is no flatterer. He will throw a prince as soon as his groom.

Ben Jonson

You were a lord if you had a horse...Far back, far back in our dark soul the horse prances. . . . The horse, the horse! The symbol of surging potency and power of movement, of action, in man.

D. H. Lawrence

Under his spurning feet, the roadLike an arrowly alpine river flowedAnd the landscape sped away behindLike an ocean flying before the wind....

Thomas Buchanan Read

So did this horse excel a common oneIn shape, in courage, color, pace and bone....What a horse should have he did not lack,Save a proud rider on so proud a back.

William Shakespeare

When I bestride him, I soar, I am a hawk: He trots the air; the earth sings when he touches it; the basest horn of his hoof is more musical than the pipe of Hermes.

William Shakespeare

Go anywhere in England where there are natural, wholesome, contented, and really nice English people; and what do you always find? That the stables are the real center of the household.

George Bernard Shaw

Horses have hoofs to carry them over frost and snow; hair, to protect them from wind and cold. They eat grass and drink water, and fling up their heels.... Such is the real nature of horses.

Chuang Tzu

It isn't important who is ahead at one time or another, in either an election or a horse race.It's the horse that comes in first at the finish that counts

Harry S Truman

England is a paradise for women and hell for horses; Italy a paradise for horses, hell for women, as the diverb goes.

Robert Burton

I know it can be dangerous, but I love racing. I worry my wife, but she knows it's important to me.

Patrick Dempsey

As an individual, not as the boss of a company, I am very interested in motor racing.

Carlos Ghosn

Racing a thoroughbred grand prix car in front of a home crowd will be a surreal and mighty experience.

Nigel Mansell

I feel that after all those horrible reviews and jokes, I wasn't crazy all these years to stand up for the music I believe in. This album has proven that somewhere in the human race, the human heart is still racing and breaking and I am so grateful.

Barry Manilow

But so far, you know who's been violating the nuclear nonproliferation pact day and night? Those who signed it. Iran, Iraq, Libya and Iran violates it while calling for Israel's destruction and racing to develop atomic weapons to that end.

Benjamin Netanyahu

I was quiet, a loner. I was one of those children where, if you put me in a room and gave me some crayons and a pencils, you wouldn't hear from me for nine straight hours. And I was always drawing racing cars and rockets and spaceships and planes, things that were very fast that would take me away.

Gary Oldman

But I have to say I'm incredibly proud of the Panther Racing National Guard Team, and in my IndyCar career there's not many races where I've honestly left the track feeling that we've executed everything perfectly. And I have to say, I thought they did an absolute phenomenal job. The pit stops were just first class.

Dan Wheldon

I think you're certainly going to see much closer racing. But, no, these are very good teams in the IRL. I just can't stress how competitive they all are and how close it's going to be.

Dan Wheldon

Simply racing a Formula 1 car is an achievement.

Sebastian Vettel

I come from an ordinary family - my dad is a carpenter, a roof-maker - and we've always loved racing together.

Sebastian Vettel

Kimi Raikkonen

In F1 too many things overshadow the racing. There is too much politics.

Kimi Raikkonen

When I did some Nascar races this year I noticed that I was increasingly missing the racing side, to race against each other, because in rallying you really race against the clock.

Kimi Raikkonen

I am racing to the studio the moment that God affords me the opportunity to hear again.

Foxy Brown

I was racing through life, utterly confused and angry. I don't know if I was out of control; it was more like I felt frustrated with myself and everything I saw happening around me.

Jimmy Nail

And I guess the thing that I really sort of rely on in me is that I love racing and I love competing and so I know that you know when the time comes and the pressure's on and I have to swim well, I'm sort of able to pull it out and sort of get the best out of myself.

Stephanie Rice

In Athens I was 17 and I didn't have any expectations. I was just swimming fast and racing everybody. I didn't have the joy after my races in 2007. I didn't want to go to Beijing. I had to for sponsors.

Laure Manaudou

I couldn't beat Michael Phelps. A couple of years ago, I was racing against him and it just kinda dawned on me during the race that there was no chance I was gonna beat this guy. And so I said, if you can't beat him, find a race that he won't swim.

Mark Warkentin

This 51 Phoenix Racing team, I love them to death. They've got my back, I've got theirs.

I've always said that racing in New York is performing on the big stage.

Caroll Shelby

When you are racing in an able-bodied competition, you're all equal and you go out there and try your best, and that's what counts.

Natalie du Toit

On Memorial Day, I was out floating on Lake Norman and came across Denny Hamlin. We struck up a conversation, and one of the first things we were talking about was how much it helped him when he started racing the Cup car and how much it helped his Nationwide program.

Danica Patrick

We don't do things we aren't good at by nature. I wouldn't play basketball because I'm only 5' 1". Find what you enjoy - whether it's racing, flying a helicopter, being a doctor, or stitching clothes together. Once you've done that, you have the passion you need.

Danica Patrick

I think there's a lot of deep-rooted history in England with racing. Lots of Formula One teams are based there. Formula One is obviously a huge sport over in England and Europe.

Danica Patrick

The business model of racing is not a pretty one.

Jeff Gordon

My career in racing started at a very young age in California.

Jeff Gordon

I think driving in New York is a great experience. A lot more racing techniques go into it than anyplace else I've ever driven. There basically are no lanes.

Jeff Gordon

We have to keep our fans watching not just at home on TV but here at the racetrack too. This is where you sell people on the speed and excitement of racing.

Jeff Gordon

Auto racing is boring except when a car is going at least 172 miles per hour upside down.

Dave Barry

Also, when I started racing he knew a lot of people and it was more easy for me to find the first bike, so I have a good chance for sure.

I would have probably stolen cars - it would have given me the same adrenaline rush as racing.

Valentino Rossi

A racing driver has to be a good driver.

Gary Smith, when I came to America, taught me a great deal about racing.

I am very happy because motor racing is very important outside the states, very big all over the world.

Emerson Fittipaldi

I have to accept risk as a racing driver.

Emerson Fittipaldi

Indy car racing is much more aggressive.

Emerson Fittipaldi

The racing driver's mind has to have the ability to have amazing anticipation, coordination, and reflex. Because of the speed the car goes.

Emerson Fittipaldi

I found my interest lapse in both acting and racing.

Lillie Langtry

Alan Ginsberg was fabulous. The man is so filled with energy. He's 65 years old and he's just loaded with energy and charm and wit and his mind is constantly racing.

Ray Manzarek

Do you have any ambitions outside racing? My main ambition at the moment, whether inside or outside racing, is to become Formula 1 World Champion.

Kimi Raikkonen

I've tried everything other than jumping out of a plane, but nothing gives you an adrenaline rush like racing a car.

Nigel Mansell

Fitness will be a major factor in the first race and I think that will play into the hands of drivers who have been racing recently, rather than people like me who haven't raced properly for a decade. I'am not one of the favourites to start with.

Nigel Mansell

After hurting myself like that, I could not go back immediately to racing. I was in no condition, mentally or physically. That helped me to strengthen myself to go through the hard times that were ahead with my business, and to be successful.

Nelson Piquet

Through F1, I bought my own boat. I learned to fly my own plane and helicopter. And my job with my company is a reflection of everything motor racing taught me.

Nelson Piquet

Running an airline is a normal job. Racing is more.

Niki Lauda

The driver of a racing car is a component. When I first began, I used to grip the steering wheel firmly, and I changed gear so hard that I damaged my hand.

Juan Manuel Fangio

I learned to approach racing like a game of billiards. If you bash the ball too hard, you get nowhere. As you handle the cue properly, you drive with more finesse.

Juan Manuel Fangio

You can easily die racing to cover a bank robbery as you can in a war zone.

Jessica Savitch

The only sport I'm not interested in is horse racing. That's because I don't know the horses personally.

Nat King Cole

Just about any story we think about doing, whether we've read it in a newspaper, heard it on the radio or come upon it through word of mouth - by the time you get there, every other network, cable station and talk show is already racing to the scene.

Connie Chung

It's kind of ironic that the two sports with the greatest characters, boxing and horse racing, have both been on the decline. In both cases it's for the lack of a suitable hero.

Dick Schaap

I thought: This is not racing, it's a suicide mission.

Barry Sheene

And that just shows you how important the car is in Formula One Racing.

Murray Walker

Anything happens in Grand Prix racing, and it usually does.

Murray Walker

The bottom line is what we do might not be the safest so there is always some risk but we are ready to take that into account because we love racing and we love motor sports and it is dangerous.

Sebastian Vettel

Winter testing is essential but there comes a point where you have had enough of all the rehearsals and the pretend racing. You just want to get down to the real action.

Damon Hill

And suddenly I realized that I was no longer driving the car consciously. I was driving it by a kind of instinct, only I was in a different dimension.

Ayrton Senna

After an era of everything being super-sized, who would have thought that major companies would be racing to market smaller, lower-calorie versions of their snacks and beverages - from half-sized candy bars to little, mini soda cans? We see it everywhere we go.

Michelle Obama

I want to keep pushing the limits to see what's possible. That's the nice thing about ski racing - no one is stopping you from going faster.

Lindsey Vonn

I love the cowbell. I think it's awesome. My family got the cowbell app on their iPhones. It's a classic part of ski racing.

Lindsey Vonn

Making ski racing fun and engaging for kids and families is an exciting opportunity and a real passion of mine.

Lindsey Vonn

Ski racing is not about how much you weigh. If weight was the key, everybody would be sucking down food.

Lindsey Vonn

Racing, competing, it's in my blood. It's part of me, it's part of my life; I have been doing it all my life and it stands out above everything else.

Horse racing is animated roulette.

Roger Kahn

Going to car racing school was phenomenal.

Michelle Rodriguez

It's all about racing on the track.

Adam Petty

I don't sleep much. I'm on the go. My mind is racing. My wife says my mind is like the rolling dials on a slot machine. So, yeah, I think about everything.

Bill Walton

From today I am no longer a racing driver. I'm retired and I am very happy.

Jackie Stewart

We have had more sales for this year's grand prix than any other, and we have been helped in that by the fact that Jenson had 10 podiums last season and looks like a winner. It is good for British motor racing if he is there and doing well.

Jackie Stewart

We were racing at circuits where there were no crash barriers in front of the pits, and fuel was lying about in churns in the pit lane. A car could easily crash into the pits at any time. It was ridiculous.

Jackie Stewart
