If & Man in the Arena Poster Set
Rudyard Kipling's "If" Poster
An 18" x 24" poster that depicts Rudyard Kipling's famous poem "If." In the background you'll find Casper David Friedrich's famous painting "The Wanderer Above the Sea Clouds." We thought this was a fitting image for such a manly poem. Look how the man looks out upon the majesty below as he contemplates that word with endless possibility, danger, and excitement . . if. Over that image, we took the eternal words of Kipling's poem and situated them so they form the word "If." This poster will be a constant reminder to you on what it takes to be a man. It makes a great gift for a young man to hang in his room.
The Man in the Arena Poster
An 18" x 24" poster of Teddy Roosevelt, smiling at death itself while waving his hat to his admirers. Next to him you'll find inscribed his most popular quote, "The Man in the Arena." Whenever dejection and defeat come knocking at your door, simply glance TR's toothy grin and hear his voice reminding you that "the credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood." In an instant your manly resolve will be rejuvenated and you'll have the vim and vigor to overcome any challenge that besets you.
