Anytime you feel like quitting

Remember what President Lincoln went through:

He failed in business in 1831.

He ran as a state legislator and lost in 1832.

He tried business again and failed again in '33.

His sweetheart died in '35.

He had a nervous breakdown in '36.

He ran for state elector in '40 after he regained his health.

He was defeated for congress in '43, defeated again for congress in '48, defeated when he ran for the senate in '55, and defeated for vice presidency of the United States in '56.

He ran for the senate again in '58 and lost.

This man never quit. He kept on trying till the last.

In 1860, this man, Abraham Lincoln, was elected President of the United States!

Wow, this man had detemination! It never pays to quit....keep on going!
