Don't Quit

It is tough, trust me..I'm there right now.


When things go wrong as they sometimes will, And the road you're 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 don't you quit. For life is strange with its twists and turns, As every one of us sometimes learns; But many a coward turns about When he might have won had he stuck it out. But he learns too late when the night comes down How close he was to the golden crown. Victory is defeat turned inside out, The silver tint of the clouds in doubt, You will never know how near you are – It may seem close when it seems afar. So stick to the fight when you are hardest hit; It is when things seem worst that you must not quit.

"All you need is ignorance and confidence, and success is sure."
Mark Twain, "Letter to Mrs. Foote"
