    Glad you liked it - I have a 1000 page book at home - Oxford dictionary of quotes - there's a few from Kipling.

    Cheers!

    I am not an athiest.
    One of my all time favorites. It's almost become a theme for me since I started trading crypto-currencies. :p

    The whole poem for me is about self-possession.

    It's really just a highly stylized version of Row, Row, Row Your Boat.

    *edit: telling us to move through life without allowing it to rock your boat.

    Life is but a dream?

    I decided on a whim to plug that into Google and found some quotes I never seen before!

    Life Is A Dream Quotes (14 quotes)

    Enjoy!
