Manliness

 

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 force your heart, and nerve, and sinew

To serve your turn long after they are gone;

And so hold on when there is nothing in you

Except the will which says to them, Hold on.

 

If you can fill the unforgiving minute

With sixty seconds worth of distant run,

Yours is the earth and everything thats in it,

And what is more, youll be a man, my son

 

-Rudyard Kipling
