    Someone has left this poem laying round in the office in a frame and I thought I would share it. I googled it and it seems quite well known, so sorry if it is old hat but I had never seen it before:

    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.

    Success is failure turned inside out,
    The silver tint in the clouds of doubt,
    And you never can tell how close you are,
    It might be near when it seems afar;
    So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit -
    It's when things seem worst that you must not quit
    .

    I do not know who the author is.

    Yes - it can apply to a lot of things I think.

    I don't normally go for this kind of thing but it's not too sentimental.
