Don't Quit - Some Motivation Poems

Feeling really down the last couple of days, so I feel like some motivation poems are in order. ^.^ Hope these add a little motivation and perseverance to your footsteps today. Here are a couple that do that for me. Especially the last my room, on my dresser, I have a little "statue" that has the first few lines of the poem on it. My mom gave it to me long ago and whenever life is kicking me around a bit, I reach for that and read the poem out loud. It always helps a little. 

A Stumbling Block Or a Stepping-Stone
by: R. L. Sharpe

Isn't it strange how princes and kings,
and clowns that caper in sawdust rings,
and common people, like you and me,
are builders for eternity?

Each is given a list of rules;
a shapeless mass; a bag of tools.
And each must fashion, ere life is flown,
A stumbling block, or a Stepping-Stone.

Don't Quit
by: Unknown

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
