    Chuang-Tzu (4th century BC)
    Chinese philosopher, teacher
    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 never 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 of won if he'd stuck it out;
    Stick to your task, though the pace seems slows-
    You may succeed with one more blow.
    Success is failure turned inside out-
    The silver tint of the clouds of doubt-
    And you may 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 worse that YOU MUSN'T QUIT.
