    Don't Quit

    When things go wrong, as they sometimes will
    When the road you're trudging seems all uphill
    When the funds are low and the debts are high
    And you want to smile, but you have to sigh
    When care is pressing you down a bit
    Rest if you must, but don't you quit.

    Life is queer with its twists and turns
    As every one of us sometimes learns
    And many a fellow turns about
    When he might have won, had he stuck it out.
    Don't give up though the pace seems slow
    You may succeed with another blow.

    Often the goal is nearer than
    It seems to a faint and faltering man;
    Often the struggler has given up
    When he might have captured the victor's cup;
    And he learned too late when the night came down
    How close he was to the golden crown.

    Success is failure turned inside out
    The silver tint of the clouds of doubt
    And you never can tell how close you are
    It may be near when it seems afar;
    So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit
    It's when things seem worst that you mustn't quit.

    Nice poem. I never quit as you might have seen. Even if I decide to quit I fall back more deep into things.

    Regards,
