Quotes about Determination and Perseverance

Don't Quit

~ 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.

Success is failure turned inside out;

The silver line of the clouds of doubt;

And you can never 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 go wrong that you mustn't quit. ~
