Post A Think piece on life

Here's just a little somen to make ya think, and if you actuall y do think about what's written here and you relate it to your own life, you can come up with some pretty philosphical stuff!!!


IF you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaiming 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 nt 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 loook too good , nor talk too wise:

IF you can dream and not make dreams your master;
IF you can think aand 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 in one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breath a word about your loss;
IF you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your trun 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 Earth and everything that's in it,
And - which is more, you'll be a Man, my son!

You women and you're sense of humor...

I don't know if anyone's welcomed you yet, so welcome, PunkGirl. I find myself wondering a lot about what new people think when they first come to these boards, and what in the hell makes them desire to stay...?
The never-ending quest to find a reason to smile...

Hey Hooked

Thanks for the friendly welcome. Ummm the message boards are alright, but I'm still just figuring out how to do things and what everything on here means but other than that it's cool here.
