At one time or another, I’m sure you have either heard or read the following; however, if you’re like me, I need constant reminding of thoughts and inspiration that the following words will bring. So read it, print it, remind yourself daily of it, so that you will never 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 never quit. Life is queer, with its twists and turns, as every one of us sometimes learns, and many a failure turns about when he might have won if he’d stuck it out; stick to your task, though the pace seems slow, you may succeed with one more blow. Success is failure turned inside out, the silver tint of the clouds of doubt, and you never can tell how close you are, it may be near when it seems so afar; so stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit, it’s when things seem worst that YOU MUST NOT QUIT.” Unknown

The end justifies the struggle; if we quit too soon, the only thing we are left with is the struggle, which creates discouragement, however, if we stay with it, our persistence will prove a favorable outcome. Remember that victory will swallow up the sorrow. So keep going because victory is at the other end of a fight!

  1. Great reminder!!
    Onward!!! Upward!! Always forward!

    It was a joke in Laramie WY that you could always tell a person from WY in a crowd. They’re always leaning forward to go forward because of the intensity of the wind that blows across the prairies. No leaning into it…no forward motion.
