National Poetry Day

-
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!

    I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own weblog and was wondering what all is needed to get
    setup? I'm assuming having a blog like yours would
    cost a pretty penny? I'm not very internet smart so I'm not 100% positive.

    Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you http://www.deinformedvoters.org/dapoxetine-60mg

    I'm amazed, I must say. Rarely do I come across a blog that's
    both equally educative and interesting, and without
    a doubt, you've hit the nail on the head. The issue is an issue that too few folks are
    speaking intelligently about. I am very happy that I found
    this in my hunt for something concerning this. http://herreramedical.org/dapoxetine
