Classic Poem on “Don’t Quit”

I found one classic poem a few days back, I don’t know who wrote it but the poem reflects hugely on human character :what are the typical scenarios you are going to face and why you should stick to your plan and not quit in between.

Read this poem when you are down, or you are experiencing a temporary setback.

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 fellow 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 came 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 afar,

So stick to the light when you’re hardest hit –

It’s when things seem worst that you mustn’t quit.
