"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...
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And - which is more - you'll be a Man, my son!"
"If." Rudyard Kipling.
