If You Can…

Thursday, May 1, 2008

If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you
But make allowance for their doubting too
…..

If you can dream–and not make dreams your master,
If you can think–and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same; …..

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with kings–nor lose the common touch; …..
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run
,
Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,
And–which is more–you’ll be a Man, my son !

“If” by Rudyard Kipling
