If – A #poem by #RudyardKipling. Final paragraph especially stands out.

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with Kings – nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
with 60 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.
