Persistence

An unknown poet wrote:

‘When things go wrong as they sometimes will, and the road you’re trudging seems all uphill. When funds are low and the debts are high, and you want to smile but you have to sigh.

When things are pressing you down a bit, rest if you must, but don’t you quit! Life is strange 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.
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 slipped down, how close he was to the golden crown.

Success is failure turned inside out-the silver tint of the clouds of doubt.

You never can 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.’

For by persistence the snail reached the ark!

Have a lovely Tuesday.

I honour you.
