Poet Rudyard Kipling, author of the poem If, wrote:

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.

Those are blessings too.
