1.
See It Through
When you're up against a trouble,
Meet it squarely, face to face;
Lift your chin and set your shoulders,
Plant your feet and take a brace.
...
2.
On Quitting
How much grit do you think you've got?
Can you quit a thing that you like a lot?
You may talk of pluck; it's an easy word,
And where'er you go it is often heard;
...
3.
Hard Luck
Ain't no use as I can see
In sittin' underneath a tree
An' growlin' that your luck is bad,
An' that your life is extry sad;

They've always been the same;
Whenever anything goes wrong,
The woman is to blame.

Fearing to trust me and be true.

Or to say "nit" when she proposes,

Gettin' together to smile an' rejoice,
An' eatin' an' laughin' with folks of your choice;
An' kissin' the girls an' declarin' that they
Are growin' more beautiful day after day;
...

My father knows the proper way
The nation should be run;
He tells us children every day
Just what should now be done.
...
9.
A Friend
A friend is one who stands to share
Your every touch of grief and care.
He comes by chance, but stays by choice;
Your praises he is quick to voice.
...
10.
Myself
I have to live with myself and so
I want to be fit for myself to know.
I want to be able as days go by,
