Lesson about not quitting

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 strange with its twists and turns,

As everyone 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 might succeed with another blow!

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 victor's cup;
And he learned too late when the night came down,
How close he was to the golden crown.

Success is failure, turned inside out,
The silver tent of the clouds of doubt,
And you never can tell how close you are,
 It may be near, when it seems afar;
S, stick to the fight when you're hardest hit,
It's when things seem worst, that YOU MUST NOT QUIT!
"Endure to the end" are words that we bear countless times in the scriptures.  What do they really mean to you?"

Scriptures:  Proverbs 4:18 But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shines more and more unto a perfect day.
Hebrews 11:6  For without faith, it is impossible to please him;  for he that cometh unto God must believe he is God and that he is a rewarded of them that diligently seek him.
