Famous quotes containing the words india, pale and/or ale:

    India has 2,000,000 gods, and worships them all. In religion other countries are paupers; India is the only millionaire.

    If you wish to grow thinner, diminish your dinner,
    And take to light claret instead of pale ale;
    Look down with an utter contempt upon butter,
    And never touch bread till it’s toasted—or stale
    —H.S. (Henry Sambrooke)

    Where village statesmen talked with looks profound,
    And news much older than their ale went round.
