Dont Quit - John Greenleaf Whither 1807 -1892

When things go wrong as they sometimes will

When the road you're trudging seems uphill

When funds are low and debts are high

When you want to smile instead you sigh

When love is pressing you down a bit

Rest if you must, but please don't quit

Life is strange with twists and turns

As everyone of us comes to learn

And many a failure comes about

When she may have won if she'd stuck it out

Dont give up even tho the pace seems slow

You may succeed with another go

Success is failure turned inside out

The silver tint of the clouds of doubt

And you can never tell how close you are

It may be close when it seems so far

Stick to the fight when you are hardest hit

Its when things seem worse that you must not quit

For all sad words of pen and tongue

The saddest are - what may have been
