Don’t Quit – author unknown

I would like to add, that when I researched this piece, I found many versions of it that were missing the center 1/3. It has been my experience that the center 1/3 of this message may really be the most valuable section – except for the title. jcc.

Don’t Quit – author unknown


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 have to sigh;
When care is pressing you down a bit-
Rest if you must, but do not quit.

Life is strange with its twists ands turns,
as everyone of us sometimes learns;
and many a failure turns about,
when he 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 failure turned inside out,
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt;
And you can never 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 go wrong that you must not quit.
