Don't Quit

When things go wrong as they some times will; 
When the road you are trudging seems all uphill, 
When the funds are low and the debts are high; 
When 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 sometime learns;

Don't give up though the pace seems slow; 
you might succeed with another blow. 
and many a failure turns about 
when he might have won had he stuck it out; 

Success is failure turned inside out-- 
the silver lining of the cloud of doubt, 
and you can never tell how close you are; 
it may be near when it seems afar; 

So stick to the fight when you are hardest hit; 
It's when things get worse that you mustn't quit!
