"The Quitter" ~ My New Favorite Poem

I am great Fan of Sir Richard Branson, Founder of Virgin. My Twitter, Linked In, Facebook, Email, Bookmark and what's not almost everything at least have a thing or two from Richard. I follow him closely.

His words inspires you, no matter how strong the storm is, you are facing. Today, I found something very much inspiring from him; you know what? His Favorite Poem written by Robert Service. I read it. Feeling Inspired. And I am keeping it in my library of favorites  Following is the text, hope will inspire in career building and leading a wonderful life ahead.

The Quitter

When you're lost in the Wild, and you're scared as a child,
    And Death looks you bang in the eye,
And you're sore as a boil, it's according to Hoyle
    To cock your revolver and . . . die.
But the Code of a Man says: "Fight all you can,"
    And self-dissolution is barred.
In hunger and woe, oh, it's easy to blow . . .
    It's the hell-served-for-breakfast that's hard.

"You're sick of the game!" Well, now, that's a shame.
    You're young and you're brave and you're bright.
"You've had a raw deal!" I know — but don't squeal,
    Buck up, do your damnedest, and fight.
It's the plugging away that will win you the day,
    So don't be a piker, old pard!
Just draw on your grit; it's so easy to quit:
    It's the keeping-your-chin-up that's hard.

It's easy to cry that you're beaten — and die;
    It's easy to crawfish and crawl;
But to fight and to fight when hope's out of sight —
    Why, that's the best game of them all!
And though you come out of each gruelling bout,
    All broken and beaten and scarred,
Just have one more try — it's dead easy to die,
    It's the keeping-on-living that's hard.

AND AT THE FINISH LINE RICHARD ASKS
