    Don't Quit (for those here . . .)

    (who could use a kick in the pa . . . er, morale lift. A copy is printed and sitting on my work desk. It helps, I believe.)
    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 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.



    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 so far,
    So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit --
    It's when things seem worst that you must not quit.

    Nice sentiments, but I don't think the football team & staff have given up on the season. I'm sure a small portion of the fan base is upset this week, but it's not even close to panic time yet. I think ISU comes out extremely motivated for the game this Saturday and pick up the first Big XII win of the season.

    It's easy to grin
    When your ship comes in
    And you've got the stock market beat.
    But the man worthwhile,
    Is the man who can smile,
    When his shorts are too tight in the seat.
