Don´t Quit

  1. Don´t Quit

    When things go wrong as they sometimes will,
    When the road you´re trudging
    seems up hill.
    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
    We might have won had he stuck it out;
    Don´t give up though the pace seems slow -
    You may succeed with another blow.
    Success is a 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 so far:
    So stick to the fight when you´re hardest hit -
    It´s when things seem worst
    that you must not quit.​

  4. Hi, sorry, I have forgotten to note, that it´s not my work. Unfortunately the author is not mentioned... so I can´t look for anything else by him :-(
