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.
Found on a photo/poem/quote blog....JUST BE SPLENDID

  2. Hello Suz!
    I know this poem so well ! When I was a student, a quarter of a century ago (!) I was finding the whole experience rather tricky and my Mum sent me a bookmark with this poem printed on it.... I still have it now! I love this poem and have often returned to it. Then, by coincidence, a couple of weeks ago Hubby was having a tricky work time and I wrote it out for him....
    I think this poem has good vibes - nobody can be 'uncheered' by this poem!
    Thank you!
