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?

“Delighting in existence O monks, are gods and men; they are attached to existence. they revel in existence. When the Dhamma for the cessation of existence is being preached to them, their minds do not leap towards it, do not get pleased with it, do not get settled in it, do not find confidence in it. That is how, monks, some lag behind … (It. p 43)”

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.
