"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 wait & not be tired by waiting. Or being lied about dont deal in lies. Or being hated not give way to hating. Yet neither look too good nor talk too wise""
- First verse of poem by Rudyard Kipling; entitled 'IF'
