Stick to Your Task

Stick to your task till it sticks to you;
Beginners are many, but enders are few.
Honour, power, place, and praise
Will come, in time, to the one who stays.

Stick to your task till it stick to you;
Bend at it, sweat at it, smile at it too;
For out of the bend and the sweat and the smile
Will come life's victories, after awhile.

stickTo('task') until stickTo('you'); $Beginners++; $Enders--; my ($Honour,$Power,$Place,$Praise) if $one eq 'stays'; stickTo('task') until stickTo('you'); bend() && sweat() && smile() for @It; 2; for (<OUT>){ bend() && sweat() && smile() } return "victory" if sleep(rand());

    My sister embroidered this and framed it for me and my brothers in about 1993. (I was about 14) I have become very task oriented as an adult. I just passed it on to my son.
