Great poem for the work at home crowd!

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 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 if he'd stuck it out
Don't give up, though the pace seems slow
You may succeed with another blow.

Often the goal is nearer thanIt seems to a faint and faltering man;
Often the struggler has given upWhen 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 go wrong
That you mustn't quit.

I quit today, gave up, on drinking diet sodas. I just cant do it. Bought a real Dr. Pepper. I felt bad about giving in, but gosh, it was so GOOD!!!! I know that really isnt anything pertaining really to your post, but when I saw the quit, I was like yikes. I am a quitter. I gave up on trying to get used to that wang taste in the diet sodas. :( Haave a great weekend!!!
