    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 everyone of us sometimes learns.

    And many a failure turns about,
    When you might have won...had you stuck it out.

    Don’t give up, though the pace seems slow…
    You might succeed with another blow.

    Often the struggler has given up,
    When he might have captured the victor’s cup.

    And he learned too late, when the night slipped 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 must not quit…
