The authorship of this poem seems to be a little controversial and lost over time. I have done a search as to the the author and come up with several names, the most common being - Edgar A. Guest (1881-1959).
Who ever wrote it, I hope they got the due credit. I had this little verse on a pretty little scroll, when I was a teenager. I loved it and treasured the words. I gave it away to a person who had cancer and they held on to it, treasuring the words as a gift.
Today I thought I would find a poem for you all and I remembered this one. I remember the gift it was to me through the teenage trials and the gift it became to the person I handed it onto. I give this poem to each one of you that needs a little lift; especially to all who need to be reminded that you must not quit!
