    I want to put Eger Guest's Sermons we see in a book I'm writing. I can't find what year it was written. Or where I go for permission.

    I have a poem that I have had for many many years. It has no title but starts with the line Oh Lad of mine, oh lad of mine, be never coldly dumb to me. I can't find it anywhere. It is written in calligraphy and signed Edgar R. Guest. I have had it under glass for 50 years. How can I find out if it an original?

    i am looking for the poem by Edgar A Guest - Parson's Good Example. Mr Guest wrote it for/about my great grandfather who he used to play golf with. The copy from the newspaper clipping that I found years ago is torn and I don't have the entire poem. I would like to find a copy or even just the poem words.

    Please let me know if you know of this poem. Thanks vickidawson114@yahoo.com

Best Poem of Edgar Albert Guest

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.
When it's vain to try to dodge it,
Do the best that you can do;
You may fail, but you may conquer,
See it through!
Black may be the clouds about you
And your future may seem grim,
But don't let your nerve desert you;
Keep yourself in fighting trim.
If the worst is bound to happen,
Spite of all that you can do,
Running from it will not save you,
See it ...

Read the full of See It Through

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;
But can you tell to a jot or guess
Just how much courage you now possess?
You may stand to trouble and keep your grin,
But have you tackled self-discipline?
Have you ever issued commands to you
