●Dale Carnegie’s No 1 poem – stuck to his shaving mirror – Salutation To The Dawn



Look to this day
For it is life, the very life of life.
In its brief course
Lie all the verities and realities
Of your existence
The bliss of growth
The glory of action
The splendour of beauty
For yesterday is but a dream
And tomorrow is only a vision
But today, well lived, makes every yesterday
A dream of happiness
And every tomorrow a vision of hope.
Look well, therefore to this day
Such is the salutation to the dawn.

    hi Maria Fe!
    it is a really moving poem
    and so important to focus on the wonder and brilliance of life!
    especially when the media is banging on and on on the gloom and doom of the banking fiasco
    and repercussions which when we jump on the doom gloom trail actually creates a worse situation and the vicious cycle of depression gathers momentum!

    thank goodness for all those that are inspiring and filled with brightness and joy and look for the positive aspects of any situation!
    i am so fortunate that i am surrounded by many of them – the hard part is finding people you can trust isn’t it.

    and the banking fiscal system has really really blown it in the trust department
    getting a bail out from the tax payers and then paying bonuses with it!

    lets keep in touch so we can continue to inspire each other through the ups and downs of daily life!
    all the best to you

    The heart is what is important.” There is nothing more vulnerable, nothing more corruptible than the human mind; nor is there anything as powerful, steadfast and ennobling.
    Daisaku Ikeda
