Don't 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 don't you 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 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 slipped down,

How close he was to the golden crown.

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 worst that you must not quit.

Beware Of Your Gunless Friend!

Beware Of Your Gunless Friend!

The dangerous people are not the ones

Who hit you with clubs and rob you with guns!

The thief won't attack your character traits

Or belittle your abilities to your face!

It likely will be a well-meaning friend

Who merely crushes your will to win.

No, he doesn't rob you, at point of gun,

He simply says, "It can't be done."

When pointed to thousands who already are

He smiles and says, "They're superior!"

Personality-wise, and abilities, too,

They're way ahead of what others can do!"

It matters not that his words are untrue

For, you feel "others" must know you!

So, you're robbed of your hopes, your dreams to succeed.

Robbed of the material blessing received,

Robbed of your faith that says, "I can."

And robbed by an ignorant, gunless friend.

So, the deadliest of men is not he with a gun,

But the one who tells you "It can't be done!"

For that taken by burglars can be gotten again.

But, what can replace your will to win?

Climb 'Til Your Dream Comes True

Often your tasks will be many,

And more than you think you can do.

Often the road will be rugged

And the hills insurmountable, too.

But always remember,

The hills ahead

Are never as steep as they seem,

And with Faith in your heart

Start upward

And climb 'til you reach your dream.

For nothing in life that is worthy

Is ever too hard to achieve

If you have the courage to try it,

And you have the faith to believe.

For faith is a force that is greater

Than knowledge or power or skill,

And many defeats turn to triumph

If you trust in God's wisdom and will.

For faith is a mover of mountains,

There's nothing that God cannot do,

So, start out today with faith in your heart,

And climb 'til your dream comes true!

by: Helen Steiner Rice

Somewhere Over The Rainbow lyrics

Somewhere, over the rainbow, way up high There’s a land that I heard of Once in a lullaby Somewhere over the rainbow, skies are blue And the dreams that you dare to dream Really do come true Someday I’ll wish upon a star And wake up where the clouds are far behind me Where troubles melt like lemon drops And way above the chimney tops Is where you’ll find me, and Somewhere over the rainbow, way up high There’s a land that I heard of Once in a lullaby Where troubles melt like lemon drops And way above the chimney tops That’s where you’ll find me, and Somewhere over the rainbow, skies are blue And the dreams that you dare to dream Really do come true If happy little blue birds fly Beyond the rainbow Why, or why, can’t i?

You Can If You Think You Can!

If you can keep your head when all about you

Are losing theirs and blaming it on you.

If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,

But make allowance for their doubting too;

If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,

Or being lied about, don't deal in lies,

Or being hated, don't give way to hating,

And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise:

If you can dream - and not make dreams your master;

If you can think - and not make thoughts your aim;

If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster

And treat these two impostors just the same;

If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken

Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,

Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,

And stoop and build 'em up with worn-out tools:

If you can make one heap of all your winnings

And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,

And lose, and start again at your beginnings

And never breathe a word about your loss;

If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew

To serve your turn long after they are gone,

And so hold on when there is nothing in you

Except the Will which says to them: 'Hold on!'

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,

Or walk with Kings - nor lose the common touch,

If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,

If all men count with you, but none too much;

If you can fill the unforgiving minute

With sixty seconds' worth of distance run,

Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,

And - which is more - you'll be a Man, my son!

IF

If you think you are beaten, you are,

If you think you dare not, you don't.

If you like to win, but you think you can't,

It is almost certain you won't.

If you think you'll lose, you're lost,

For out in the world we find,

Success begins with a fellow's will.

It's all in the state of mind.

If you think you are outclassed, you are,

You've got to think high to rise,

You've got to be sure of yourself before

You can ever win a prize.

Life's battles don't always go

To the stronger or faster man.

But soon or late the man who wins,

Is the man who thinks he can.

~ C. W. Longenecker ~
