Rudyard Kipling Quote
You may talk o' gin and beer
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.
Gunga Din, Stanza 1. - Barrack-Room Ballads (1892, 1896)
