“I never looked into eyes so intelligent. In their depth, no trace of the deception or cowardice of men. Proud without being arrogant, you were never really tamed. We could never put a bit in your mouth. You were a partner much more than a domesticated animal. You carried us and listened to our voices freely, in a pact of love because we knew you could have led us where you wanted. You had the power.”

— Salomé Malou, “Plisczka,” page 82
