Inspiration to Always Persevere

We’re always talking about perseverance irrespective of the obstacles that lie in front of you. But truth be told, sometimes the knock backs can be powerful and cause you to doubt yourself. In those moments of doubt, that’s when you need some inspiration.


Here’s a passage/poem by an anonymous author which I hope will help you to push through no matter how hard the challenges are ahead.

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 the 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 fellow turns about
When he might have won had he stuck it out.
Don’t give up though the pace seems slow –
You may succeed with another blow.
Success is failure turned inside out –
The silver tint in the clouds of doubt,
And you never can tell how close you are,
It might be near when it seems so far;
So stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit –
It’s when things seem worst that you must not quit.
