The Great Receiving Station

Rudyard Kipling, letter to Henry Arthur Jones (September 2, 1925), in The Letters of Rudyard Kipling, ed. Thomas Pinney, Vol. 5: 1920-30 (Iowa City: University of Iowa Press, 2004), p. 295:
I expect that every man has to work out his creed according to his own wave-length, and the hope is that the Great Receiving Station is tuned to take all wave-lengths.
Rudyard Kipling, "Namgay Doola," Mine Own People (Boston: The Edinburgh Society, 1909), pp. 35-54 (at 40-41):
"But he worships strange gods," said the prime minister, deferentially.

"For that I have no concern," said the king, who was as tolerant as Akbar in matters of belief. "To each man his own god, and the fire or Mother Earth for us all at the last."
