Hwin the Horse Quotes

Four of the best book quotes from Hwin the Horse
  1. #1
    “Then Hwin, though shaking all over, gave a strange little neigh and trotted across to the Lion.
    ‘Please,’ she said, ‘you’re so beautiful. You may eat me if you like. I’d sooner be eaten by you than fed by anyone else.‘”
  2. #2
    ″‘Why do you keep talking to my horse instead of to me?’ said the girl.
    ‘Excuse me, Tarkheena,’ said Bree (with just the slightest backward tilt of his ears), ‘but that’s Calormene talk. We’re free Narnians, Hwin and I, and I suppose, if you’re running away to Narnia, you want to be one too. In that case Hwin isn’t your horse any longer. One might just as well say you’re her human.’
    The girl opened her mouth to speak and then stopped. Obviously she had not quite seen it in that light before.”
  3. #3
    “Do not by any means destroy yourself, for if you live you may yet have good fortune, but all the dead are dead like.”
  4. #4
    ″‘When this news was brought to me ...[I] caused my mare Hwin to be saddled and took with me a sharp dagger... And when my father’s house was out of sight and I was come to a green open place in a certain wood where there were no dwellings of men, I dismounted from Hwin my mare and took out the dagger. Then I parted my clothes where I thought the readiest way lay to my heart and I prayed to all the gods that as soon as I was dead I might find myself with my brother. After that I shut my eyes and prepared to drive the dagger into my heart.‘”
