Don’t You Quit!

This video includes my favorite motivational poem. Perhaps you’ve heard it before, but even if you have I’m pretty sure you’ll still enjoy it. I know I always enjoy, usually in it’s written form. In fact, I think it’s best if you read the written form first which I will post below.

In the video version it is combined with perhaps the most motivation music score ever written. I won’t spoil it for you, but I’m quite sure that most of you will recognize it. Maybe not initially, but keep listening and it will probably dawn on you.

When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
When the road your 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 everyone 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 if 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 worse, that you MUST NOT QUIT!
