Don't quit when the tide is lowest,
For it's just about to turn;
Don't quit over doubt's and questions,
For there's something you may learn.
Don't quit when the night is darkest,
For its just a while 'til dawn;
Don't quit when you've run the farthest,
For the race is almost won.
Don't quit when the hill is steepest,
For your goal is almost nigh;
Don't quit, for you're not a failure
Until you fail to try.

It’s amazing how these simple words have inspired me to keep going. They have driven me through all the writing, all the rewriting and the editing until finally I succeeded in creating something truly memorable.
These words have power and not just for writers, but for us all. They speak for the drive that lies deep within us to see our dreams come true. Your dreams are there for the taking. All you have to do is reach for them. And as Jill Wolf says, “Don’t quit, for you’re not a failure.”
