Hello tapoe, Yes, it is Rudyard Kipling, and the title of the poem is "If". You can read it here: http://whitewolf.newcastle.edu.au/words/authors/K/KiplingRudyard/verse/p3/if.html This is a site that focuses on the works of Kipling. The home page at http://whitewolf.newcastle.edu.au/words/authors/K/KiplingRudyard/index.html has links to many more of his poems, as well as 6 novels, a number of short stories and non-fiction pieces. Kipling won the Nobel Prize in Literature for 1907. The web site of the Nobel Foundation has a page featuring a biography of him, with links to his prize acceptance speech. http://www.nobel.se/literature/laureates/1907/kipling-bio.html Search strategy: I was already aware of the poem. I searched on Kipling "be a man", and then Kipling + biography to obtain a bit more information.
