And how will I speak?
I will praise my enemies and they will become my friends, I will encourage my friends and they will become my brothers.
Always I will dig for a reason to applaud and never attempt to criticize, I will bite my tongue and
when I am moved to praise I will shout it from the roof top
Is it not true that the birds, the wind, sea and all of nature speak with the music of praise for the creator?
Cannot I also speak with the same music to his children?
I will remember the secret and it will change my life.

I will love the failures for they can teach me.
I will love the kings for they are but human.
I will love the meek for they are Devinne.
I will love the rich for they are yet lonely
I will love the poor for they are so many.
I will love the young for the faith they hold.
I will love the old for the wisdom they share.
I will love the beautiful for their eyes of sadness.
I will love the ugly for their souls of peace.

But how will I react to the actions of others?
With love!
For just as love is my weapon to open the hearts of men, love is also my shield to repulse the arrows of hate and the spares of anger.
Adversity and discouragement will beat against my new shield and become the softest of rains.My shield will protect me in the market place and sustain me when I am alone.
It will lift me up in moments of despair yet it will calm me in times of exultation. It will become stronger and more protective with each use until one day I will cast it aside and walk unencumbered among all manners of men.
And my name will be raised high on the pyramid of life.

I WILL GREET THIS DAY WILL LOVE IN HEART!

And how will I confront each whom I meet?
In only one way.
In silence and to myself.
I will address him and say ” I LOVE YOU”!
Though spoken in silence these words will shine through my eyes!
Unwrinkle my brow!
Bring a smile to my lips!
Echo in my voice!
And his heart will be opened!
AND THEY WILL GREET THIS DAY WITH LOVE IN THEIR HEARTS!

From “The Greatest Salesman in the World”, Og Mandino
