Manchester City v Hamburg: Thursday 16 April 2009. Words of encouragement.

‘When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hang on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn.’~ Harriet Beecher Stowe

‘One has to remember that every failure can be a stepping stone to something better.’~ Col. Harland Sanders

‘If you’re going through hell, keep going.’~ Winston Churchill

‘Fall seven times, stand up eight.’~ Japanese Proverb

‘When things go wrong as they sometimes will
When the road you’re trudging seems all up hill
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
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.’
~ Unknown

‘He who refuses to embrace a unique opportunity loses the prize as surely as if he had failed.’~ William James

Good luck lads.
