Walt Whitman - What General has a Good Army.

WHAT General has a good army in himself, has a good army; 
He happy in himself, or she happy in herself, is happy, 
But I tell you you cannot be happy by others, any more than you can beget or conceive a
    child
	by others.

I really like this poem because, in a sense, it's saying that you yourself needs to be a strong person to get by. Not necessarily physically, but just strong in life and mentally.
