Tomorrow--there's no day so fair,
It knows no sorrow;
A day that banishes despair,
Joy rules tomorrow.

EDGAR GUEST, "Tomorrow"

Though friends and foes deride;
In fact, a failure's not so bad
As never having tried.

EDGAR GUEST, "The Shame"

The happy man is he who turns his soul
Unto the light of joys that he can find;
And pays each day its just demand of toll,
But shuts the future troubles from his mind.

EDGAR GUEST, "The Present"

Determination is the thing
On which you can depend.
It plods along without a swing,
But gets there in the end.

EDGAR GUEST, "The Thing"

Life is like a cocktail, made up for the most part of sweet things, and tinged with a dash of bitters. We must drain it to the dregs to get at the cherry, just as we must live a full and rounded life to know all its pleasures.

EDGAR GUEST, Home Rhymes

EDGAR GUEST, Home Rhymes

Pride goes before a fall, they say,
And yet we often find,
The folks who throw all pride away
Most often fall behind.


Ah, the mighty men who conquer,
And the men whose words we drink,
Are the men who quit the jangle,
Quit the turmoil and the wrangle
Of the world, and turn their faces
To secluded, silent places,
Where in solitude they think.


All the world loves a lover, but how it does laugh at his love letters.

EDGAR GUEST, Home Rhymes

Troubles loom up big when they're ahead,
And joys seem always sweeter when they're past.

EDGAR GUEST, "The Present"

Many a man can make a success of everything but himself.
