8 Mar

Mongolians do not give their horses names, rather, they refer to them by their color. There are more than 300 words in Mongolian to refer to the color of a horse.

via The Mavenist, which, aside from conspicuously referencing Enquire Within Upon Everything and commonplace bookssomebody’s been reading Where Good Ideas Come From—offers much more than equestrian facts:

When you don’t create things, you become defined by your tastes rather than ability. Your tastes only narrow and exclude people. So create.
