And treat those two impostors just the same;. Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,. Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,. If you can make one heap of all your winnings. And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,. And lose, and start again at your beginnings. And never breathe a word about your loss;. If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew. To serve your turn long after they are gone,. And so hold on when there is nothing in you.
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;. Source: A Choice of Kipling's Verse From Audio Poem of the Day June Read More.
