Don't Quit

(Author Unknown)
This is a favourite poem of Swamiji:


When things go wrong as they sometimes will,
When the road you're trudging seems all uphill,
When the founds 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 quite.

Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As every one of us sometimes learns,
And many a failure turns about
When the might have won had he stuck it out;
Don't give up through he 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 never 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.
