The words of IF by Rudyard Kipling

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 and not be tired by 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’ve spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build ’em up with worn-out tools;

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
Except the Will which says to them: ‘Hold on!’

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:
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,
And—which is more—you’ll be a man my son!

Better than I could have wished for

Really wonderful piece - well crafted from fine materials - beautifully made, packaged with care and love. Arrived quickly. This will make a beautiful gift for my husband for Christmas! Thank you so much for offering such quality pieces - and such profound poetry as “IF”. He will cherish this forever.

This was a gift for Valentine’s for my husband. The poem I already knew he loved but he absolutely loved the print. He was staring at it for ages noticing the subtle differences in the letters due to it’s hand made quality. It is pretty beautiful and it has been simply framed in a black wooden frame to enhance the black letters. It has pride of place in our entrance hall and my husband still looks at it every day and says thank you to me. So thank YOU for such a beautifully crafted gift

I absolutely love how this turned out. Responsive shop, and quick turnaround. The paper it was printed on was impressive, and I’d certainly describe it as a heavier quality stock. The font type and print was exactly what I was looking for. I would highly recommend!
