I also read this years ago, and at one point had it on a fridge magnet. Thanks for putting it back out there.

I read this for the first time over 30 years ago while still living in Mexico City. It struck a cord back then that still vibtates today.
Have a great weekend! Hugs xoxo Anita
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 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 every one 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 may 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 tint on the clouds of doubt And 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.

You cannot get what you’ve never had unless you’re willing to do what you’ve never done.
Don't be afraid that your life will end, be afraid that it will never begin.
