Black Beauty: Oh! If people knew what a comfort to horses a light hand is, and how it keeps a good mouth and a good temper... Black Beauty: Good places make good horses. Black Beauty: We don't get to choose the people in our lives. For us, it's all chance. John Manly: Kind treatment makes good horses, Joe. Bad treatment ruins them. Black Beauty: People aren't only cruel to horses they are also cruel to each other
