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, 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
When he might have won had he stuck it out
Don’t give up, though the pace seems slow
You might 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 stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit
It’s when things seem worst, That you MUST NOT QUIT!

Okay, now I’m ready – Bring it on, Monday!
Make each moment count double,

    There is another poem entitle “Don’t Quit”.
    I learned it in grade school. I am 60 now.
    I remember it went something like this,
    “Don’t Quit”
    The best song hasn’t been song yet
    The best race hasn’t been run…
    Have you heard this one?
    I don’t know the author.
