  3. What If
    Poet:  Catherine Pulsifer, © 2019

    If you give up and quit
    You will always wonder "what if"
    Take a deep breath and start again
    Let learning and failure be a friend.

    Stick to the task be like a dog
    Giving up keeps you in a fog.
    Refocus your thinking
    Start at the beginning.

    Persistence pays off no matter what
    Quitting just closes everything shut
    If you are determined you'll find a way
    And then you'll never wonder "what if" someday!

  5. The Key To Wants
    Poem by Catherine Pulsifer, © 2011

    If you've ever been told in your life,
    That there is something you can't do.
    I hope you didn't quit, but instead showed wit,
    And proved it's not up to them, but to you.

    You'll come across many people in life,
    That believe they know it all.
    It can be hard to construe if what's been said was true,
    But overall, it's up to you to stand tall.

    Anything you want to do, you can do,
    If you only believe in you.
    Don't let others change you, or try to bend you,
    You're the only person who can change your point of view.

    So if this is really what you want to do,
    Get out there and take action.
    Be all you can be, turn that key,
    And don't allow for any distraction!

  6. those who win never quit those who quit never win

  7. Sweet is the Pleasure
    Poet: John Sullivan Dwight

    'Rest is not quitting
    The busy career;
    Rest is the fitting
    Of self to its sphere.
    'Tis loving and serving
    The highest and best;
    'Tis onward! unswerving, —
    And that is true rest.

  8. Faces What He Must
    Poet: Unknown

    I like the man who faces what he must
    With step triumphant and a heart of cheer;
    Who fights the daily battle without fear;
    Nor loses faith in man; but does his best.
    Nor ever murmurs at his humblest lot,
    But, with a smile and words of hope, gives zest
    To every toiler. He alone is great
    Who by a life heroic conquers fate.

  9. You're Never Licked
    Poet: Hobart Benjamin

    When a fellow is down and the going is rough,
    And inside he's hungry, the whole world seems tough;
    Just 'cause he's down and taking a kicking,
    Is no sign at all that he's taking a licking.
    Take all those kicks and come back with a grin.
    Just being down, boy, was never a sin.
    Sure, it's a fight, and a hard one at that,
    But you have your chance, so make it a scrap.
    Square up your shoulders and set all your sail,
    For if you have the stuff, boy, you'll weather the gale.

  10. The Man Who Comes Back
    Poet: David V. Bush

    Oh, don't be a quitter, we disdain such a man,
    Though we have been guilty ourselves;
    We've oft turned our backs from life's sordid whacks
    Let the past be put on the shelves.

    Yes, we have been quitters for many a day;
    Ashamed, sneaked back to the ranks;
    We quit and returned all bridges we burned;
    And received men's comments and thanks.

    Oh, don't be a quitter who never comes back;
    Tho defeated and beaten today,
    Don't throw up the sponge; just you again lunge
    Head- foremost to the thick of the fray.

    If you are a quitter the one who comes back
    You're in good company;
    For many a man in this glorious land
    Has quit, yet claims victory.

    No longer a quitter when you try, try again
    You stop and then go ahead;
    So take heart again; our God will sure send
    Success before you are dead.
