If you can…

If you can start the day without caffeine, if you can get along without pep
pills, if you can always be cheerful, ignoring aches and pains, if you can
resist complaining and boring people with your troubles,

If you can eat the same food every day and be grateful for it, if you can
understand when your loved ones are too busy to give you any time, if you
can overlook it when those you love take it out on you when, though no fault
of yours, something goes wrong,

If you can take criticism and blame without resentment, if you can ignore a
friend’s limited education and never correct him/her, if you can resist
treating a rich friend better than a poor friend,

If you can face the world without lies and deceit, if you can conquer
tension without medical help, if you can relax without liquor, if you can
sleep without the aid of drugs,

If you can honestly say that deep in your heart you have no prejudice
against creed, color, religion or politics,

Then, my friend, you are ALMOST as good as your dog.
