They havent got any grievance-nothing to hit with, dont you see, sir; and then theres not much to hit against, because the Government is more like a kind of general Providence, directing an old-established state of things, than that at home, where theres something new thrown down for us to fight about every three months.

...As a good many men told him, HE undoubtedly had no soul, because he was so young, but it did not follow that his seniors were equally undeveloped; and, whether there was another world or not, a man still wanted to read his papers in this.

...One day, after he had borrowed The Worms trap for a lady who never existed, had used it himself all the afternoon, had sent a note to The Worm purporting to come from the lady, and was telling the Mess all about it, The Worm rose in his place and said, in his quiet, ladylike voice: That was a very pretty sell; but Ill lay you a months pay to a months pay when you get your step, that I work a sell on you that youll remember for the rest of your days, and the Regiment after you when youre dead or broke.

...Me, and two Baboos from a Government Office somewhere in Anarkulli, but they got the sack and couldnt pay (no man who has to work in the daylight can do the Black Smoke for any length of time straight on); a Chinaman that was Fung-Tchings nephew; a bazar-woman that had got a lot of money somehow; an English loafer- Mac-Somebody I think, but I have forgotten-that smoked heaps, but never seemed to pay anything (they said he had saved Fung-Tchings life at some trial in Calcutta when he was a barrister): another Eurasian, like myself, from Madras; a half-caste woman, and a couple of men who said they had come from the North.

...I wasnt doubting for a moment that you couldnt pay your way, sir; but I ave often said to my wife, Its ard on im because it isnt as if he was an old man, nor yet a middle-aged one, but quite a young gentleman.
