IF is a poem written by Rudyard Kipling (1865-1836)
IF by Rudyard Kipling starts -
If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowances for their doubting too;
......and ends ...
Yours is the earth and everything that's in it
And - which is more - you'll be a man, my son.

1. "If" is the BIGGEST "little" word in the English language. It can stop a contract from going through. It can stop a marriage. It can stop love. It can intervene in life and change it dramatically. If can do many things. It is able to change an entire book of words. (If this story had been true, wouldn't it really be sad then?") If can change you point of view, perspective, and interest in one, or many things (persons, etc...) all at once, or over a long period of time.
1. Todd said that"If is the biggest little word in the world." He was right...

more examples:

"If I would have known then what I do now; I NEVER would have done that."

Then the Judge said: "If you proceed as planned, you WILL go to jail young man! Do you understand this?"

"If I had a dollar for every time she cheated on me, I'd be RICH!"


"Iffy" - Meaning that things are close to a true balance, but that it could go either way depending on what happens.

1968 movie centering on a English boys boarding school starring, Malcolm McDowellCLOCKWORK ORANGEwhich tells a vivid story with dramatic cinematography of a violent uprising on that campus..If....you are trying to sort out why our own campuses are being shot up you might want to watch this one soon.
Even though it's now 40 yrs old that movie If....really could be about a lot of the things happening in society today,,I think Malcolm McDowell was knighted if not he should be..
