Defeat doesn't finish a man, quit does. A man is not finished when he's defeated. He's finished when he quits...
We never realize how close we're to winning when we decide to quit. Who has not had moments when everything seems just too much to bear, when it seems like it's not worth the fight anymore? We all have these moments and for sure we have come close to quitting, but the true winner is that person who perseveres and just keeps going...just like the energizer bunny. There is enough time for quitting when one is dead, but as long as you have breath in you, you should never give up.
Americans never quit. Douglas MacArthur
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 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,
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...
Success seems to be connected with action. Successful people keep moving. They make mistakes, but they don't quit...I quit being afraid when my first venture failed and the sky didn't fall down...
until next time..
