The Don’t Quit Poem…

  • “When things go wrong as they sometimes will.
  • When the road your trudging seems all up hill.
  • When funds are low and depts 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 do not quit.
  • Life is queer with its twists and turns.
  • As every one of us sometimes learns.
  • And many a failure turn about, when he might have won had he stuck it out.
  • Don’t give up though the pace may seem 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 stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit.
  • It is when things seem worst that you must not quit.”
