HENRY JOHN NEWBOLDT
English author and poet
(1862 - 1938)

To set the cause above renown,
  To love the game beyond the prize,
    To honor while you strike him down,
      The foe that comes with fearless eyes;
        To count the life of battle good
          And dear the land that gave you birth,
            And dearer yet the brotherhood
              That binds the brave of all the earth.
      - Clifton Chapel [Honor]

For bragging time was over and fighting time was come.
      - Hawks [War]

Lives obscurely great.
      - Minora Sidera [Greatness]

Now the sunset breezes shiver,
  And she's fading down the river,
    But in England's song forever
      She's the Fighting Temeraire.
      - The Fighting Temeraire [Navy]

To see the Cause above renown,
  To love the game beyond the prize,
    To honour, while you strike him down,
      The foe that comes with fearless eyes;
        To count the like of battle good,
          And dear the land that gave you birth;
            And dearer yet the brotherhood
              That binds the brave of all the earth.
      - The Island Race--Clifton Chapel
        [Character]

Play up, play up, and play the game.
      - Vital Lampada [Amusements]
