The Prompter Room

Something a little different* …

For Tuesday, February 28, 2017:

 

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 all is pressing you down a bit -/Rest if you must, but don’t you quit.

Success is failure turned inside out,/The silver tint on the clouds of doubt;

And you can never tell how close you are;/It may be near when it seems far.

So stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit -/It’s when things go wrong that you must not quit.

John Greenleaf Whittier
