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 when you want to smile, but you have to sigh.


When fear is pressing you down a bit

rest if you must, but do not quit.


Life is weird with its twists and turns

as every one of us sometimes learns,

and many a fellow turns about

when you might have won had you just 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 you might have captured the victors cup.

and you learn too late when the night came down

how close you were 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 afar.


So stick to the fight when your hardest hit

It's when things seem the worst that you must not quit.



No, the Buckster didn't write that but I do live by that. I had it hanging in my college dorm room and it helped me stay focused when things seemed hard. Put it up on your wall when you're beating yourself up or thinking you can't go on anymore. You can thank me later.
