Quote of the Day – Rest if You Must, But Don’t Quit

Don’t Quit

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 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.

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 slipped down,
How close he was to the golden crown.

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.

  1. Does this refer to you?
    Are you hitting it to someone you loved before? I aint already or are you trying to get even?!
    Or also are you referring this to the one who’ s making you crazy your so called “friend” with a little mix of malice from you?

    Another quote that really struck me.
    “If you cant handle the worst of a person certainly you cant have their best”
    Is it you or me or your future lover?

    One thing for sure you really got me there.


  2. I want to quit. I dont want to be like this anymore.
    I tried everything on what I got, to fight for what I believe worth fighting for but definitely it’s worthless to you.
    I’m shattered right now I’m in deep pain. I hope that everything was just a dream. Please release me from stress pain and suffering.

    I know your in good hands now for what ever reason you may keep on telling me. Just make sure youll take good care of yourself and found already the true happiness you trully deserve.
