Don't You Quit



I saw this on a writing blog I frequent.

I memorized this poem, "Don't You Quit" as an assignment back in elementary school. The whole class recited it in that sing-songy way that only children can do. I believe the author is unknown.

As I watched this video, so many years later, the words came right back to me and I found myself whispering them as I watched.

Think I'll have my kids learn this one.

It's worth it.

Do you have poems or verses you learned in childhood that inspire you?

Peace & Blessings,
Patricia

That was beautiful -- and so inspiring. I've saved it so I can watch whenever I feel discouragement setting in. Thanks!
