Default Words of Encouragement

I just wanted to offer up this poem as encouragement to all. Life hands us lemons. It is up to us to make lemonade or if you're Martha Stewart, Lemon Chiffon Pie (or something like that).

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/she might have won had he/she 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.

I love this poem. It always inspires me whenever I read it and I hope it inspires you too.
