Don’t Quit

Remember that we can choose just to :

“Rest but never quit. Even the sun has a sinking spell each evening. But it always rises the next morning. At sunrise, every soul is born again.”  – Unknown

 

Don't quit

 

Don’t Quit

When things go wrong as they sometimes will,

When the road you’re trudging seems all up hill,

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,

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.

 

I have grown up in a Catholic family where singing religious songs accompanied by a guitar  is much a way  of expressing how we feel. Here is a song by Lynda Randle (One Day at Time, Sweet Jesus) which inspires me and picks me up at times when everything seems so dark and I feel like giving up.
