    I've never had anyone to read to me poems or stories. At least, none that don't have to do with school work. That's why I enjoy reading so much and will continue to do so until the sight that remains leaves my eyes. It's worth it if I get to read something as lovely as this.

    Thrilling! I love Kipling as a writer. How proliferating his writings! Astonishing! 2-1-2014

    It is worth reading. Like the teaching and everything about the poem.

    My love for poetry was transfused into my blood by a father who used to sit me on his knee and read me poems from his paperback copy of 101 Famous Poems. This one, Kipling's If, was one he quoted by heart. Years ago, it inspired my own If poem about pre- and post-marital fidelity. I will try to post it at some less busy season....

    My very favorite poem. It carries not only litterary aesthetics but a wonderful message of sould greatness.

    My Daddy loved this poem and he used as success message to all his children at the time of candidate classes (were are nine)
    i appreciate the poem 'if' in this world we take the impossible as possible then life is worth living

    If but a small word we live a lifetime of bliss. Life would be truly worth living..brief as it is..only If.
