    Don't Quit

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

    since I am having some rough times right now and I know of others here who are going through their own share of crap, I felt the need to bump this up.:biggrin1::biggrin1:

    Sounds like a lot of what I'm going through right now, especially the "when funds are low and debts are high" part.

    I haven't quit yet! I applied for 3 jobs yesterday, and already talked to one of them on the phone. I didn't qualify for that job, but there are some others that I'm possibly more qualified for, and I'm going to a meeting at the employment office later today. Hopefully I can get a career counselor there to talk to one on one. I think they kind of rush you too much in the group meetings over there.

    Yeah, I take a lickin' and keep on tickin'. I'm either too stubborn or too stupid to quit. Maybe a little of both. :buttkick:
