Respectfully Quoted: A Dictionary of Quotations. 1989.
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.
