votepetraeus.jpgIf you can keep your head when all about you are losing theirs and blaming 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 to good , nor talk too wise,

yours is the earth and everything thats in it,

and-which is more-you’ll be a man.
