Don't You Quit

“Don’t Quit by Author Unknown”

When things go wrong, as they sometimes will, when the road you’re 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 don’t you quit.

Life is queer with its twists and turns.

As every one of us sometimes learns.

And many a fellow 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. Often the goal is nearer than it seems to a faint and faltering man; often

the struggler has given up when he might have captured the victor’s cup; and

he learned too late when the night came down, how close he was to the golden

Success is failure turned inside out— the silver tint of the clouds of doubt, and

when you never can tell how close you are, it may be near when it seems afar;

so stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit— it’s when things seem worst, you

must not quit.

You will never win if you quit, and quitters never win.  I love that quote.

Dave, definitely cannot have thin skin in this career choice - because what can go wrong, WILL go wrong, and you have to figure out how to make it work!  Great post.
