NUMBER:1358
AUTHOR:Author unknown
QUOTATION:When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
When the road you’re trudging seems all up hill,
… When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest, if you must—but don’t 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 victor’s cup.
ATTRIBUTION:Author unknown, “Don’t Quit.”—Hazel Felleman, The Best Loved Poems of the American People, pp. 113–14 (1936, reprinted 1957).
SUBJECTS:Perseverance
