Don't Quit

When things go wrong, as they sometimes will
When the road you're trudging seems all uphill
When funds are low and debts seem high
And you want to smile but 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 everyone in life sometimes learns
And many a failure turn about
When he might have won had he stuck it out
Don't give up thought the pace seems slow
You might succeed and now even know
Often the goal is easier
Than it seems to faith and faltering man
Often the struggle has given up
When he might have captured the victory cup
And had 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 are the hardest hit
Its when things seem worst that you mustn't quit.
