Don’t Quit!

We all know that life isn’t easy, and that sometimes we may get the urge to give up on our dreams. But you never know when you may be reaching that “tipping point”: When things will shift and go your way. (In fact, you may be interested in a book by Malcolm Gladwell called “The Tipping Point”.)

It also reminds me of a poem that I have known for many years by Edgar A. Guest. Here is a portion of that poem, in hopes that it will inspire you to not give up:

When things go wrong as they sometimes will, when the road you’re trudging seems all up hill, When the 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.

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’re hardest hit – It’s when things seem worst that you must not quit.
