Don’t let your babies grow up to be cowboys: Vintage edition


   “To take revenge on a horse! Lassiter, the men of my creed are unnaturally cruel. To my everlasting sorrow I confess it. They have been driven, hated, scourged till their hearts have hardened. But we women hope and pray for the time when our men will soften.”
   “Beggin’ your pardon, ma’am—that time will never come.”
   “Oh, it will!”

(Zane Grey. Riders of the Purple Sage. New York: Grosset & Dunlap, 1912: 13-14.)
