Lady Anne Blunt quote

I saw this quote on the blog of Ralph Suarez, and it’s from Lady Anne Blunt:

“An inborn love of the horse is instinctive, quite unreasoning, and one cannot recall any beginning of what seems to have always been there, together with a craving for perfection in the object of interest.”

  1. 🙂 , from a fellow sufferer of this incurable condition!

  2. much to parents’ dispair!

  3. I’m not familiar with that quote. Is it from the Journals, or where exactly? At what point in her life did she make this observation?

  4. I am not familiar with it either and i must admit it’s also unlike her to write in this direct style. Maybe Ralph can tell us where he got that one from…

  5. I’m just curious whether this was something she wrote in a letter, and if so to whom? Or whether it was a private comment in the Journals, or something from her “Book of Fragments” that found its way into The Authentic Arabian.

  6. I’m not sure that it sounds like something from her journals or anything from the book of fragments, but I think I have read it before so maybe it was in a letter?
    Ralph would know I am sure.
