you must not quit

this was given to me many years ago & unfortunately that person is no longer in my life. i still read this often & it gives me the extra kick i need to keep going. so, i thought i would share it with the rest of you.


"When things go wrong as they sometimes will

When the road your 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 never 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 if he'd stuck it out

Stick to your task though the pace seems slow

You may succeed with one more blow

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 far

So stick to the fight when you are hardest hit

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

Okay--this is one of those mornings when my brain and my eyes are having a disconnect. When I read the post title, I could have sworn it said, "You Must Not QUILT". I thought that seemed strange. I read the first stanza, and it seemed stranger still. Then I realized my brain stuck an "L" into the word that should be there, and suddenly it made much more sense!

I can see why you read it from time to time. The quote is inspiring.
