Inspiration
 
IT'S ALL IN THE STATE OF MIND

If you think you are beaten, you are
If you think you dare not, you don't
If you like to win, but think you can't
It is almost certain you won't

If you think you'll lose, you have lost
For out in the world we find,
Success begins with a fellows will
It's all in the state of mind

For many a game is lost
Before even a play is run,
And many a coward fails
Before even work is begun

Think big and your deeds will grow,
Think small and you'll fall behind
Think that you can and you will
It's all in the state of mind.

DON'T QUIT

WHEN THINGS GO WRONG, AS THEY SOMETIMES WILL,
WHEN THE ROAD YOU'RE TRUDGING SEEMS ALL UPHILL,
WHEN THE FUNDS ARE LOW, AND 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 STRANGE WITH ITS TWISTS AND TURNS,
AS EVERYONE OF US SOMETIMES LEARNS,
AND MANY A FAILURE TURNS ABOUT,
WHEN HE MIGHT HAVE WON HAD HE STRUCK 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 CAN NEVER 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.
