假如—— 

假如你能——在別人不知所措卻對你橫加指責的時候,保持清醒的頭腦; 
假如你能——在所有人都懷疑你的時候仍然相信自己,並能體諒別人對你的懷疑; 
假如你能等待且又充滿耐心, 
或者,從不用謊言去應付謊言,也不用仇恨去回擊仇恨, 
既不故作正經也不誇誇其談。 
假如你充滿夢想——但絕不做夢想的奴僕; 
假如你勤於思考——卻不把思想當作目標; 
假如你能——在遇到勝利和困難時態度同樣平靜; 
假如你能容忍你所說的真理,被無賴用作捕捉愚人的陷阱, 
或看著你所獻身的事業轟然倒塌,你能屈身拾起殘破的工具把它們重建。 
假如你能——把所有贏來的籌碼 
都押在一把賭注上, 
輸光後仍能重新再來, 
且對輸贏隻字不提。 
假如你能——在運氣不佳身心俱疲之時, 
仍能全力以赴抓住機遇, 
在一無所有隻剩意志支撐的時刻, 
咬牙堅持到底。 
假如你能——與三教九流為伍而獨善其身, 
與王公貴族同行而不忘本色; 
假如無論是敵是友不能傷害到你; 
假如所有的人對你來說用等重要; 
假如你能把每一分寶貴的光陰 
化作六十秒的奮鬥—— 
你就擁有了整個世界, 
最重要的是——你就成了一個真正的人,我的孩子! 
  
  
  
  
  
If------ 
By Joseph Rudyard Kipling 
  
If you can keep your head when all about you 
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you; 
I f 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 away 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; 
I f you can meet with Triumph and Disaster 
And treat those two imposters 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; 
I f 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 crows 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!
