Sunset Beach, NC and Beyond: February 2011

Rest if you must ~ but don't you quit

Many times in a lifetime people think about quitting ~ They don't want to continue what they are doing for various reasons ~ It's too hard ~ They don't want to fail ~ They have failed ~ Things go wrong ~ The battle is never-ending ~ Quitting seems to be the best alternative ~


 DON'T QUIT

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 everyone 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 might 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 afar:
So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit ~
It's when things seem worst that you mustn't quit.


YES, THAT IS ME AND SAMUEL L JACKSON IN KAPALUA, HAWAII. I WANTED A PICTURE WITH HIM AN HIS AUTOGRAPH. HE WAS PLAYING GOLF ON THE WEDNESDAY BEFORE THE MERCEDES IN JANUARY OF 2006. I FOLLOWED ALL THE CELEBRITIES AROUND THAT DAY GETTING AUTOGRAPHS AND PICTURES, BUT HE WAS MY BIGGEST CHALLENGE, BUT I DIDN'T QUIT ~

SAMUEL PUT HIS HEAD DOWN WHEN HE FOUND OUT I HAD A HUSBAND TAKING THE PICTURE OF US ~ RIGHT BEFORE THAT HE WAS JOKING AROUND ~ WISH FRANK HAD TAKEN THAT PICTURE TOO ~
