REST IF YOU MUST, BUT DON’T QUIT!

Unknown


WHEN THINGS GO WRONG, AS THEY SOMETIMES WILL,

WHEN THE ROAD YOU’RE TRAVELING SEEMS ALL UPHILL,

WHEN YOUR 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 STRANGE WITH ITS TWISITS AND TURNS,

AS EVERYONE OF US SOMETIME 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 MIGHTY SLOW,

YOU MAY SUCCEED WITH ANOTHER BLOW.


SUCCESS IS FAILURE TURNED INSIDE OUT,

THE SILVER LINING 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 ARE HARDEST HIT,

IT’S WHEN THINGS SEEM WORSE,

THAT YOU MUST NOT QUIT!
