Brothers and Sisters, I bid you beware Of giving your heart to a dog to tear.


He will be our friend for always and always and always.


Each dog barks in his own yard!


Politics are not my concern…. They impressed me as a dog’s life without a dog’s decencies.

Rudyard Kipling Thoughts/Quotes on Earth

There are gems of wondrous brightness

Ofttimes lying at our feet,

And we pass them, walking thoughtless,

Down the busy, crowded street.

If we knew, our pace would slacken,

We would step more oft with care,

Lest our careless feet be treading

To the earth some jewel rare.


Our hearts where they rocked our cradle, Our love where we spent our toil, And our faith, and our hope, and our honor, We pledge to our native soil. God gave all men all earth to love, But since our hearts are small, Ordained for each one spot should prove Beloved over all.


They will come back, come back again, As long as the red earth rolls.
He never wasted a leaf or a tree. Do you think he would squander souls?


God gives all men all earth to love, but since man’s heart is
small, ordains for each one spot shall prove belov?d over all.

Rudyard Kipling Thoughts/Quotes on Eyes

These are the four that are never content: that have never been filled since the dew began-
Jacala’s mouth, and the glut of the kite, and the hands of the ape, and the eyes of Man.


The glory of the garden lies in more than meets the eye.


It was the forty-fathom slumber that clears the soul
and eye and heart, and sends you to breakfast ravening.


Though our smoke may hide the Heavens from your eyes, It will vanish and the stars will shine again,
Because, for all our power and weight and size, We are nothing more than children of your brain!

Rudyard Kipling Thoughts/Quotes on Gardening

Adam was a gardener, and God, who made him, sees
that half of all good gardening is done upon the knees.


And when your back stops aching and your hands begin to harden,
You will find yourself a partner in the Glory of the Garden.


Oh, Adam was a gardener, and God who made him sees That half a proper gardener’s work is done upon his knees, So when your work is finished, you can wash your hands and pray For the Glory of the Garden, that it may not pass away!


Gardens are not made by singing ‘Oh, how beautiful,’ and sitting in the shade.

Rudyard Kipling Thoughts/Quotes on Giving

If you give someone more than they can do, they will do it.
If you give them only what they can do, they will do nothing.


Brothers and Sisters, I bid you beware Of giving your heart to a dog to tear.


What is the Law of the Jungle? Strike first and then give tongue.


The Three in One, the One in Three? Not so! To my own Gods I go. It may be
they shall give me greater ease than your cold Christ and tangled Trinities.

Rudyard Kipling Thoughts/Quotes on Heart

And the first rude sketch that the world had seen was joy to his mighty heart,
till the Devil whispered behind the leaves ‘It’s pretty, but is it Art?’


God gives all men all earth to love, but since man’s heart is
small, ordains for each one spot shall prove belov?d over all.


It was the forty-fathom slumber that clears the soul
and eye and heart, and sends you to breakfast ravening.


A brave heart and a courteous tongue. They shall carry thee far through the jungle, Manling.

Rudyard Kipling Thoughts/Quotes on Hills

If I were hanged on the highest hill, Mother o’ mine, O mother o’ mine!
I know whose love would follow me still Mother o’ mine, O mother o’ mine!


All gods have good points, just as have all priests. Personally, I attach much importance to Hanuman , and am kind to his people the great gray apes of the hills. One never knows when one may want a friend.


Shere Khan, the Big One, has shifted his hunting grounds.
He will hunt among these hills for the next moon, so he has told me.

Inspirational Thoughts/Quotes by Rudyard Kipling

The first condition of understanding a foreign country is to smell it.


Believe the best of everybody.


Of all the liars in the world, sometimes the worst are our own fears.


I always prefer to believe the best of everybody, it saves so much trouble.

Rudyard Kipling Thoughts/Quotes on Labor

More men are killed by overwork than the importance of the world justifies.


Too much work and too much energy kill a man just as
effectively as too much assorted vice or too much drink.

Rudyard Kipling Thoughts/Quotes on Lying

The glory of the garden lies in more than meets the eye.


Buy a pup and your money will buy Love unflinching that cannot lie.


A boy of to-day is affected by every change of tone and gust of
opinion, so that he lies even when he desires to speak the truth.


We’re all islands shouting lies to each other across seas of misunderstanding.

Rudyard Kipling Thoughts/Quotes on Money

All the money in the world is no use to a man or his country if he spends it as fast as
he makes it. All he has left is his bills and the reputation for being a fool.


But he couldn’t lie if you paid him and he’d starve before he stole.

Rudyard Kipling Thoughts/Quotes on Motherhood

If I were dammed of body and soul, I know whose prayers
would make me whole, mother o’ mine o mother o’ mine.


An ounce of mother is worth a pound of clergy.


God could not be everywhere, and therefore he made mothers.

Motivational Thoughts/Quotes by Rudyard Kipling

If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew to serve your turn long after they are gone,
and so hold on when there is nothing in you except the will which says to them: ‘Hold on!’


I keep six honest serving men.


Not getting what you want either means you don’t want it enough,
or you have been dealing too long with the price you have to pay.

They will come back, come back again, As long as the red earth rolls.
He never wasted a leaf or a tree. Do you think he would squander souls?


For the female of the species is more deadly than the male.


As I pass through my incarnations in every age and race, and the hearts of the meanest were humbled.

Rudyard Kipling Thoughts/Quotes on Soul

Body and spirit I surrendered whole To harsh instructors and received a soul… If mortal
man could change me through and through From all I was What may the God not do?


It was the forty-fathom slumber that clears the soul
and eye and heart, and sends you to breakfast ravening.


They will come back, come back again, As long as the red earth rolls.
He never wasted a leaf or a tree. Do you think he would squander souls?


If I were dammed of body and soul, I know whose prayers
would make me whole, mother o’ mine o mother o’ mine.
