When the Road… Seems all Uphill, Rest, if You Must, but Don’t you Quit!..Day 13

When the Road… Seems all Uphill, Rest, if You Must, but Don’t you Quit!..Day 13

When I was reminded of the song recently “Keep Right on to The End of the Road!” and I wrote a blog post on it yesterday, funny thing was that it brought to my mind that famous poem “Don’t ever Quit!” This is again something we should remember, when we feel down and low. Keep calm and carry on! Here is that poem.

Retirement she did not quit

Picture Caption – see below *

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. A good lesson to learn – not to quit.
    I have a sign in my kitchen that reads ‘I would give up chocolate but I’m no quitter’ :)
