Don't quit poem author

I always thought that Edgar Guest wrote this, but there are many who claim to, anyone know? any thoughts? There are no Edgar Guest Poems around here, perhaps I've overlooked them.

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 can never 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!

Sweet poem. Two spaces above, the author Sung, is looking for
poems of this nature. Perhaps you could guide him to this one.
