| Respectfully Quoted: A Dictionary of Quotations. 1989.|
|QUOTATION:||When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,|
When the road youre trudging seems all up hill,
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest, if you mustbut dont you quit.
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 victors cup.
