SOURCE: the pilot light will not
I assume this is a gas log? If so, you have dust in your pilot assembly. Turn everything off and let it cool. Note the opening where the pilot flames burns. Use the wand from your vacuum cleaner and place it over the opening for the pilot flame. Gently tap the side of the pilot assembly while holdign the vacuum above the opening. This will lift the minute dust particles out and allow the flame to burn nice and blue again. These logs have Oxygen Depletion Valves on them. The pilots are very sensitive to dust.

SOURCE: pilot light will not stay lit
The flame must satisfy the thermocouple. Then the thermocouple must satisfy the valve. If you have a great flame on the thermocouple, it is possible that you have a bad gas valve, if no other saftey switches has you shut down to not allow the valve to open.

SOURCE: Unable To Keep Pilot Light Lit!
I have a Williams top vent gravity wall furnace (model 5009622) and I had the same problem. I had to take the cover off the furnace -- screw on top and two at the bottom (open the access door and there is one screw on each side) to get to the reset button for the vent safety shutoff system. On my furnace it's on the left side toward the top of the unit. I pressed the little red reset button and it's been working ever since. If your furnace is properly installed and doesn't have bird's nest in the chimney, it should work fine. Good luck!

Make sure all the wire connections are good and tight. Next lift off the cover and look for a little thermal disc mounted up by top of the heat exchanger. Most have a re-set button but not all. If you have this ,by-pass it ,see if that solves the problem, if so it may be defective, or doing its job and you have a venting problem. If you don't have this and have changed the thermocouple (was it a copper tube with a fitting that screwed into the gas valve, or did it have 2 wires, that is a pilot generator, kind of same thing) make sure the probe is set correct, with the pilot flame heating the top 1/3rd of the probe. The only thing left is the gas valve.
