if you can keep your head when all about you are losing theirs, &blaming it on you,
if u can trust yourself when all men doubt you, but make allowance for their doubting too;
if you can wait ¬ be tired by waiting, or being lied about, don't deal in lies;
or being hated, don't give way to hating, &yet don't look too good, now talk too wise;
if you can dream ¬ make dreams your master,
if you can think ¬ are thoughts your aim; if you can meet w trump &disaster &treat those 2impostors just the same (emotions). if you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools, or watch the things you gave your life to, broken, &stoop &build 'em up w work out tools :
if you can make 1 heap of all your winnings &risk it on 1 turn of pitch &toss
&loss &start again at your beginnings &never breathe a word about your loss;
if u can force yer<3 &nerve&sinew2serve yer turn long after they gone, &so hold on when
there is nothing in you, except the will. which says to them : "hold on !"
if u can talk w crowds &keep yer virtue, or walk w kings ---nor lose the common touch,
if neither foes nor loving trends can hurt you, if all men count w you, but none too much ;
if you can fill the unforgiving minute w sixty seconds worth of distance run,
yours is the Earth &everything that's in it, & - which is more -you'll be a Man, my son !

it is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. the credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust &sweat &blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again &again because there is no effort without error &shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worth cause; who at the best knows in the end the trump of high achievement, &who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold &timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat. -theodore roosevelt
