  • Your life is your life - don't let it be clubbed into dang submission. There are always out,

  • there is a light somewhere, it might not be much light but it beats the darkness. Be on

  • Be on the watch, the gods will offer you chances. Know them, take them. You can't beat death,

  • but you can beat death in life, sometimes. And the more often you learn to do it, the

  • more lights there will be. You are marvelous, the gods ways to delight. Beware of those

  • who seek constant crowds, for they are nothing alone. Beware the average man, the average

  • woman, beware their love. Their love is average, seeks average. They will attempt to destroy

  • anything that differs from their own. Not being able to create art, they will not understand

  • art. Stay out of the clutches of mediocrity. Invent yourself and then reinvent yourself.

  • Change your tone and shape so often, that they can never categorize you. Reinvigorate

  • yourself and accept what it is, but only on the terms you have invented and reinvented.

  • Be self taught, and reinvent yourself because you must, it is your life and it's history

  • and it's present belong only to you.

  • 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 secondsworth of distance run, yours

  • is the Earth and everything that’s in it.

  • All the others are a test of your endurance, of how much you really want to do it. Despite

  • rejection and the worst odds, and it will be better than anything else you can imagine.

  • If you are going to try go all the way. This could mean losing girlfriends, wives, relatives,

  • jobs and maybe your mind. Go all the way. It could mean not eating for 3 or 4 days,

  • it could mean freezing on a park bench. It could mean jail, it could mean division, mockery,

  • isolation. Isolation is a gift. If you are going to try go all the way, otherwise don't

  • even start.

  • You will be alone with the gods and the nights will flame with fire, do it, do it.

  • 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. If you can wait and not be tired by waiting.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: ‘Do

  • it, do it, do it, do it, all the way, all the way!’

  • Rage, rage against the dying of the light, do not go gentle into that good night.

Your life is your life - don't let it be clubbed into dang submission. There are always out,
