This is probably the most interesting rendition of the poem “If” by Rudyard Kipling. Although the poem, in the words of the author himself, “had been printed as cards to hang up in offices and bedrooms; illuminated text-wise and anthologised to weariness,” I think it’s the best advice that can be given in these violent times.

I have posted the poem itself on my other blog, Do I.T. Yourself. There is also a video of Dennis Hopper on YouTube reciting the poem, but with German subtitles.
