I have culled, at random, quotes from his favorite poem.
“If you can wait and not be tired of waiting,
Or be lied about, don’t deal in lies”,
“If you can watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build “em up with worn-out tools;”

And – – which is more – – you’ll be a Man, my son!
And what a beautiful man you grew up to be,
