I’ve enjoyed this author’s poems for years because the theme always seems to be upward and at it. I quote one or two lines from some of his favorites.
On Quitting (by Edgar Albert Guest)
You may stand to trouble and keep your grin,
But have you tackled self-discipline?
Have you ever issued commands to you
To quit the things that you like to do
It Couldn’t Be Done (by Edgar Albert Guest)
Somebody said that it couldn’t be done
But he with a chuckle replied
That “maybe it couldn’t,” but he would be one
Who wouldn’t say so till he’d tried.
So, he buckled right in with the trace of a grin
On his face. If he worried, he hid it.
He started to sing as he tackled the thing
That couldn’t be done, and he did it!
Now is that you? Do you follow through on what you start? Are you willing to at least try?
I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. (2 Timothy 4:7)
