Page 143 - Never give up ! there are chances and changes Helping the hopeful a hundred to one; And through the chaos High Wisdom arranges Ever success — if you'll only hope on: Never give up ! for the wisest is boldest, Knowing that Providence mingles the cup, And of all maxims the best is the oldest, Is the true watchword of Never give up ! Never give up ! though the grape-shot may rattle.

Mind, mind your line among those flowering reeds, — How the rod bends ! — and hail, thou noble...
Page 140 - ALL'S for the best! be sanguine and cheerful, Trouble and sorrow are friends in disguise, Nothing but Folly goes faithless and fearful, Courage for ever is happy and wise: All for the best, — if a man would but know it, Providence wishes us all to be blest, This is no dream of the pundit or poet, Heaven is gracious, and — All's for the best!
