When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
When the road you're trudging seems 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 will, 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 she might have won had she 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 are hardest hit,
Its when things seem worse, that you must not Quit.
