Slots capital free chip. — Rudyard Kipling “ A Time For Prayer “In times of war and not before, God and the soldier we adore. But in times of peace and all things righted, God is forgotten and the soldier slighted.” -Rudyard Kipling.
We have forty million reasons for failure, but not a single excuse.
To puff and look important and to say:-
'Though we know we should defeat you, we have not the time to meet you,
We will therefore pay you cash to go away.'
And that is called paying the Dane-geld;
But we've proved it again and again,
That if once you have paid him the Dane-geld
You never get rid of the Dane.
Rudyard Kipling Quotes On India
Seventy years ago.
Weather and rain have undone it again,
And now you would never know
There was once a road through the woods.
An' now I must pay for my fun,
For the more you 'ave known o' the others
The less will you settle to one.
When you're quartered safe out 'ere,
An' you're sent to penny-fights an' Aldershot it;
But when it comes to slaughter
You will do your work on water,
An' you'll lick the bloomin' boots of 'im that's got it.
The lot has fallen to me
In a fair ground – in a fair ground –
Yea, Sussex by the sea!
Lord of our far-flung battle-line,
Beneath whose awful Hand we hold
Dominion over palm and pine—
Lord God of Hosts, be with us yet,
Lest we forget—lest we forget!
The tumult and the shouting dies—
The captains and the kings depart—
Still stands Thine ancient Sacrifice,
An humble and a contrite heart.
And no one shall work for money, and no one shall work for fame,
But each for the joy of the working, and each, in his separate star,
Shall draw the Thing as he sees It for the God of Things as They Are!
And the hearth-fire and the home-acre,
To go with the old grey Widow-maker?
Lord God, we ha' paid in full!
But the head and the hoof of the Law and the haunch and the hump is—Obey!
But the ten-times-fingering weed to hold you—
Out on the rocks where the tide has rolled you.
Famous Rudyard Kipling Quotes
There are only four things certain since Social Progress began:—
That the Dog returns to his Vomit and the Sow returns to her Mire,
And the burnt Fool's bandaged finger goes wabbling back to the Fire.
