Sunday Night Reflections

Don't Quit
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 you 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 the clouds of doubt,
And you never can tell how close you are,
It may be near when it seems so far,
So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit,
It's when things seem worse,
that you must not quit.

    1. This was given to me by my flight instructor when I was trying to earn my private pilot's license. I had gone through a very rough patch and was going to quit. He pulled this out of his wallet. He had carried it for many years. He said that it had helped him through many difficult siuations and now he wanted to pass it on to me. I went on to earn my instrument rating with him as well as my commercial rating. He became like a father to me. Amazing what you can do when you know that someone cares for you.
