So many problems, so many snags
      To untangle every day;
      So many perplexing things in life
      That keep us from being gay!
So many days that are drab and dull
      That we're filled with deepest woe,
      And we give way to discouragement,
      Our dangerous, mortal foe.—
A foe to our joy and happiness,
      A foe to our peace of mind,—
      It's something we all have to conquer
      If contentment we would find!
~Gertrude Tooley Buckingham, "Our Mortal Foe" (1940s)
