Don't Quit By An Unknown Author.



Don't Quit

by an Unknown Author

When things go wrong as they sometimes will,
When the road you're trudging seems all uphill,
When 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.

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 had he stuck it out:
Don't give up though the pace seems slow -
You may succeed with another 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 so far:
So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit
It's when things seem worst that you must not quit.

I love this. I fully believe it. Just dont quit. I never will.

Nice piece thanks for posting S .......

That was a very nice poem. I'll try to remember that.

This Poem is absolutly Beautiful! Perseverance, that is what the whole thing is about.You aught to spread this one around a bit, because this would really Uplift Peoples Spirits here!

Every so often, it is good to be reminded that the only one who can give up on You is You.

Just what i needed to read today. Thanks

Yes it is much easier when we live a life of GRACE, all of those virtues, patience, kindness, mercy, truth come to mind. good encouragement!

Beautiful words of an accurate nature...whoever rote this, was/is someone who's been through it and has a knowledge beyond their years. Thankyou so much for sharing this work with us!!

The poem is inspireing. What you say is true. Life is an adventure. We should dive into it and add the flavor that we want in our lives. Look up. Look around. See what is out there and go for the good things that you want in your life. Treat life like it is an adventure and enjoy it to the fullest. Learn what you will need to know for the next adventure. Don't be afraid of it either.<>

Thanks for the wonderful post Sherry. We all need words of encouragement while "trudging up that hill".

"Trust in the Universe" and "Let Go, Let God..."

Great words of wisdom that I plan on sharing with my family and friends. Thank you for sharing with us.

Hi sherry123456789<br />
wisdom.<br />

i love this! ever notice how very, very uplifting things often are written by unknown authors? <br />
hanging in even tho things are tough--or even if u do admit defeat and need to rest--THEN come back--words that mean everything to me. I have had a pretty good share of adversity, and hung in/come back pretty well so far--i would not smile thru adversity tho--would seem to invalidate the fierce struggle somehow.

Awesome<br />
it was a pleasant to read, I love hope<br />
Hi Sherry you will find the friends in my circle to be lovely people please get to know them you are welcome

love it!! rhythmic and meaningful :)

Beautiful, timely and inspiring. Thank you for sharing that. You rock!

Sometimes we just have to say, It's God's Will. Or some say Give it to God.<br />
All things are possible with him. Thats one of my favorite bible verses. When I was raising my young boys I would pray for knowledge for them and patience for me. And I think it worked pretty good. Lol!!!

I don't know if anybody else has noticed,but it seems like 95-99% of the things in our life are fixable.The only thing we cannot "fix" are things out of our hands like death,how people feel about us,and the outcome of every little thing we want to control but have no control over.Sometimes all we can do is leave those issues in God's hands/destiny/ or w/e anybody believes in anymore...<br />
<br />
We can do only so much.I believe whoever helps themselves will be helped.That's why if all you ever do is cry or give up,things don't turn out for the better,but then again sometimes what's best for us,we may not see it as "for the better".There's a purpose for everything,even death or emotion.If death didn't exist we wouldn't know how valuable people are to us.Sometimes it takes a harsh time to make people see what they have and how they REALLY feel.If it wasn't for emotions then we would all be empty shells,hell,we probably wouldn't exist if we didn't care about something,not even for ourselves.
