    Don't Quit Poem
    by anonymous

    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 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 might 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 slipped 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 fight when you're hardest hit;
    It's when things seem worst that you mustn't quit.

    [SIZE=+3]The Will to Win[/SIZE]
    by Berton Braley
    If you want a thing bad enough
    To go out and fight for it,
    Work day and night for it,
    Give up your time and your peace and your sleep for it,
    If only desire of it
    Makes you quite mad enough
    Never to tire of it,
    Makes you hold all other things tawdry and cheap for it,
    If life seems all empty and useless without it
    And all that you scheme and you dream is about it,
    If gladly you'll sweat for it,
    Fret for it,
    Plan for it,
    Lose all your terror of God or man for it,
    If you'll simply go after that thing that you want
    With all your capacity,
    Strength, and sagacity,
    Faith, hope, and confidence, stern pertinacity,
    If neither cold poverty, famished and gaunt,
    Nor sickness nor pain
    Of body and brain
    Can turn you away from the thing that you want,
    If dogged and grim you besiege and beset it,
    You'll get it.

    Promise yourself to be strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind.

    To talk health, happiness and prosperity to every person you meet.
    To make all your friends feel that there is something in them.
    To look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true.
    To think only the best, to work only for the best and expect only the best.
    To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about your own.
    To forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future.
    To wear a cheerful countenance at all times and give every living creature you meet a smile.
    To give so much time to the improvement of yourself that you have no time to criticize others.
    To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.

    [SIZE=-1]Don't undermine your worth
    by comparing yourself with others.
    It is because we are different
    that each of us is special.

    Don't set your goals by what
    other people deem important.
    Only you know what is best for you.

    Don't take for granted the things closest to your heart.
    Cling to them as you would your life,
    for without them life is meaningless.

    Don't let your life slip through your fingers
    by living in the past or for the future,
    By living your life one day at a time.

    Don't give up when you still have something to give
    nothing is really over until the moment you stop trying.

    Don't be afraid to admit that you are less then perfect.
    It is a fragile thread that binds each of us to each other.

    Don't be afraid to encounter risks.
    It is by taking chances that we learn how to be brave.

    Don't shut love out of your life by saying it impossible to find.
    The quickest way to receive love is to give love;
    The fastest way to lose love is to hold it too tightly;
    And the best way to keep love is to give it wings.

    Don't dismiss your dreams.
    To be without dreams is to be without hope;
    to be without hope is to be without purpose.

    Don't run through life so fast
    that you forget not only where you have been
    but also where you are going.
    Life is not a race,
    but a journey to be savored each step of the way.
