    Foreword This is a gift of thanks to my wonderful website visitors who have constantly inspired and encouraged me to do the best everyday.

    You're not obligated to win. You're obligated to keep trying to do the best you can every day." ~ Maria Wright Edelman

    As you have downloaded this ebook, and actually reading it now, I believe that you and I are people who have the determination to do the best we can every day in our lives. Success, I believe, is a life long never ending journey. Walking along this long journey, sometimes we got exhausted. Sometimes unexpected things happen. Everything seems to be going wrong. Everyone seems so disappointing. We can easily lose motivation and let days slip by without moving towards our goal. When it happens, remember this wonderful poem:

    Dont Quit

    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,

  • www.KingsonSurya.com - 365 Famous Inspirational Quotes Page 3

    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.
