If.

If you can trust yourself when all men

doubt you. But make allowance for

their doubting too.

If you can wait and not be tired of

waiting.

Or being lied about, don't deal in Lies

Or being hated, don't give way to hating

And yet don't look too good, nor talk

too wise;

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 bear to hear the truth

you have spoken. Twisted by the knaves

to make a trap for fools.

Or watch the thing you gave your

life to, broken. And stoop and build

it up with worn out tools

If you can make one heap of all

your winnings
