The Man Who Thinks He Can 

If you think you are beaten, you are;
If you think you dare not, you won’t.
If you like to win, but don’t think you can,
It’s almost a cinch you won’t.

If you think you’ll lose, you’ve lost.
For out in the world you’ll find
Success begins with a fellow’s will;
It’s all in a state of mind.

If you think you’re outclassed, you are;
You’ve got to think higher to rise.
You’ve got to be sure of yourself before
You can win a prize.

Life’s battles don’t always go
To the stronger, faster man;
But sooner or later the man who wins
Is the fellow who thinks he can.

Hold fast to dreams

For if dreams die

Life is like a broken-winged bird

That cannot fly.


Hold fast to dreams

For if dreams go

Life is a barren field

Frozen with snow.


– Langston Hughes –
