When things go wrong, as they sometimes will

When the road you're trudging seems all up hill

When the funds are low and the debts are high

And you want to smile, but you have to sigh

When care is pressing down a bit,

Rest, if you must, but don't you quit.

Life is queer with its twists and turns

As everyone of us sometimes learns,

And many a failure 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 of clouds of doubt,

And you can never tell how close you are

It may be near when it seems afar,

So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit

It's when things seem worst that you mustn't quit.
