Don’t quit (Anonymous)
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, but don’t you quit.
Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As every one of us sometimes learns,
And many a person turns about
When they might have won, had they struck it out.
You may succeed with another blow.
Often the struggler has given up –
When he might have captured the victory’s cup;
And he learned too late
When the might came down;
How close he was to the golden crown.
Success is failure turned inside out –
So stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit,
It’s when things seem worst, that you mustn’t quit.
