  13. One of my favorite poems and once upon a time I memorized it. “IF you can keep your head…”IF you can dream….”IF you can make one heap of all your winnings…”IF you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue….__”you’ll be a Man, my son”. (And, IF we can learn from this poem, then we have achieved something).

    Love Kipling’s text. Read it a long long time ago. Its value only comes clear later, after a few bangs on the head. But that’s called Life. I also find it… interesting for someone from India to quote Kipling! 🙂 (I was born in Pakistan myself) Thanks for visiting my blog.
    Take care

    Great stuff. I have heard that Kipling based this on yogic teaching that he encountered when he lived in India.
