~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 learn
And many a person turns about
When they might have won, had they stuck it out.

Don't give up though the pace seems slow.
You may succeed with another blow.
Often strugglers have given up
when you might have captured the victor's cup
And you learned too late when the night came down
How close you was to the golden crown.

Success is failure turned inside out
The silver tint of the cloud of doubt.
So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit
It's when things seem worst that you musn't quit!
