Cities and Thrones and Powers

Stand in Time's eye...

 

'Words are, of course, the most powerful drug used by mankind.''

 

 

'Power without responsibility—the prerogative of the harlot throughout the ages.''

 

 

" The tumult and the shouting dies;

The Captains and the Kings depart:

Still stands Thine ancient sacrifice,

An humble and a contrite heart. "

 

 

 

" Cities and Thrones and Powers

Stand in Time's eye,

Almost as long as flowers,

Which daily die. "

 

~ Rudyard Kipling (1865-1936), British poet
