Don't Quit

When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,

  • When the road you're trudging seems all 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 every one 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 may succeed with another blow.
  • 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 so far.

So try your best and give it all you've got.

  • Don't look at others and wish you had their lot.
  • Just stick to the fight when you're hardest hit -
  • It's when things seem worst that you must not quit.
