Now this is the Law of the Jungle -- As old and as true as the sky;
And the Wolf who shall keep it may prosper, but the Wolf that shall break it must die.

For the strength of the Pack is the Wolf, and the strength of the Wolf is the Pack.

I am hurt,but I am not slain;
I'll lay me down and bleed a-while,
And then I'll rise and fight again".”​
