Nowadays we see and hear news about hurricanes and tsunamis, which are ruining peoples’ homes and even killing them. Although most of us do not have to experience that kind of natural phenomenon, we have now and then stormy days as forms of other difficulties.
We have troubles, for example, in our relationships, work, health and finance. Remember, that a true fighter is the person, who raises up, does not quit, but continues the battle. Losers quit when they fail. Winners fail until they succeed.
When things go wrong, as they
When the road you’re trudging seems
all up hill,
When the funds are low
and the depts 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 quit.
Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As every one of us sometimes learns,
And many a person turns about
When they might have won had they
stuck it out.
Don’t give up though the pace seems slow –
You may succeed with another blow.
Often the struggler has given up
When he might have captured the
victor’s cup ;
And he learned too late when the night
How close he was to the golden crown.
Success is failure turned inside out –
So stick to the fight when you’re
hardest hit, –
It’s when things seem worst that
you mustn’t quit.
