BY RUDYARD KIPLING
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, (cont'd.)

10kdiver: The poem If, by Rudyard Kipling, has so much wisdom for investors (eg, "keep your head when all about you are losing theirs").
But the poem also talks of risking *all* our winnings on a single bet. This is the *opposite* of good investing. Buffett and Kelly would be mortified!

etunner: When the cabin port holes are dark and green
Because of the seas outside;
When the ship goes wop (with a wiggle between)
And the steward falls into the soup-tureen,
When nursey lies on the floor in a heap,
You’re “Fifty North and Forty West.”
