Do Not Quit

When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
When the road youíre 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 donít you quit.

Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As everyone of us sometimes learns,
And many a failure turns about
When they might have won had they stuck it out;
Donít give up, though the pace seems slow
You might succeed with another blow.

Often the goal is nearer than
It seems to a faint and faltering man,
Often the struggler has given up
When he might have captured the victorís 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 youíre hardest hit
Itís when things seem worst that you mustnít quit.
