The motto of all the mongoose family is, 'Run and find out.'
Is there anything in the jungle too little to be killed?
Brother, thy tail hangs down behind!
This is the way of the Monkey-kind!
Ye may kill for yourselves, and your mates, and your cubs as they need, and ye can; But kill not for pleasure of killing, and seven times never kill Man!
'There is none like to me!' says the Cub in the pride of his earliest kill;
But the jungle is large and the Cub he is small. Let him think and be still.
They settled things by making up a saying, 'What the Bandar-log think now the Jungle will think later': and that comforted them a great deal.
A brave heart and a courteous tongue. They shall carry thee far through the jungle, Manling.
Quote of the day
