"Don't Quit" words Brenda believed in and she
loved sharing this poem with people in her life.

 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 do not 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.
