Dale Carnegie's "How To Stop Worrying and Start Living"

Postby retrofuturist » Sat Aug 08, 2009 5:39 am

Greetings,

I was just wondering if anyone had read Dale Carnegie's "How To Stop Worrying and Start Living", and if so, what they thought about it? Is any of the content aligned with the Dhamma?

Through corruption of the Dhamma comes corruption of the discipline, and from corruption of the discipline comes corruption of the Dhamma. This is the first future danger as yet unarisen that will arise in the future. You should recognize it and make an effort to prevent it. (AN 5.79)

"If you stand up and be counted, from time to time you may get yourself knocked down. But remember this: A man flattened by an opponent can get up again. A man flattened by conformity stays down for good." - Thomas J. Watson

Years ago I read his book "How to Win Friends and Influence People," but somehow it didn't rub off. But it was a good book with all kinds of encouragement to care authentically about others, remember other people's names, look for things in others which you can honestly appreciate, listen carefully and put yourself in the other person's shoes, stuff like that. He seems like a fine gentleman and a skillful writer. fwiw
Rain soddens what is kept wrapped up,
But never soddens what is open;
Uncover, then, what is concealed,
Lest it be soddened by the rain.
