Don't Quit

This is an oldie, but goodie.  It's a little outdated, however I remember it making an impression on me as a high schooler and I still feel its powerful message today.

I know there are quite a few people out there going through tough times.  So, if you are one of them, this post today goes out to you with love and hope.  If you aren't going through tough times right now, then please be thankful and send a prayer of hope to those that are.  Together, we can lift each other up!

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 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 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.

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 victor's 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 so far,
So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit--
It's when things seem worst that you must not quit!

Wishing each and every one of you a beautiful day!
